Got a bit creative this afternoon.
Also, I have been listening to Heroes by Alesso ft. Tove Lo all day!! I like the part where they say:

Everyday people do everyday things
but I can’t be one of them
I know you hear me now,
We are a different kind
We can do anything

Also starting my 100 Happy Days today! Posting Day 1 tonight.
EDIT: I’ll post Day 1 tomorrow :(

So I decided that I can’t let go of my facebook account, but I’ve been using it productively now - talking to friends, family, council work, etc. This afternoon, I’ve stumbled across this story that really piqued me.

"LITTLE BOY SELLING PANDESAL FALLS VICTIM TO SNATCHER"

image

1.) The boy still in shock after losing all his money from selling pandesal. 2.) and 3.) Citizens console the boy by giving him water to drink and offering him their money.

Seriously? Can’t criminals get any more notorious than stealing from everyday people? Moreso, from kids? This infuriates me, honestly. My biggest advocacy is children’s welfare, and seeing children (who are already underprivileged) become victims of crimes really breaks my heart.  I’ve read that this boy is currently in Grade 6, and sells pandesal (for non-filipino readers, it’s inexpensive salt bread that we love to eat to eat for breakfast) to help his family.

It’s good to know that this has already become viral and the people are willing to extend their help towards this boy. I hope that in the future, children don’t have to work to help their families.

Read more about it here.

Feeling a little bit better every day.
Anyway, last Monday, I made Cakes in a Jar with my mom and sister. I tried desperately, but I put a lot of heart into it (especially in piping the frosting) haha! My mom added the ribbons just for show. Later on, we thought that this is a perfect option as gifts in the upcoming Holidays, don’t you think?

It's the fear consuming us: We are idle because we are afraid. We don't know how to move because we are afraid. We fear inadequacy, we fear failure. We know we can be a great fill-this-blank-with-something but there's that one thing in our head that's stopping us. I hope you discover this fear. I hope you acknowledge it and get over it soon. I'm telling you this because I can't tell this to myself.

"We fear inadequacy, we fear failure."

I cannot emphasize that enough. Thank you, anon.

For the second time, I want to thank everyone for the messages last night. Knowing that there are other people (peers alike) going through the same phase of wondering what’s next in life really comforts me. At least, for the most part, I know that I’m not abnormal - I mean seriously, it’s been MONTHS since I’ve been in this state of questioning whether I’m invested in the right things, and whether my life is going somewhere; if not in the right direction. 

I’d like to reflect back the love to everyone who’s going through the same phase. The same phase of idleness, of insignificance, and of inactivity. Sometimes, we get too fixated on the things that make us happy as it is temporary. Sometimes, we get too pressured by the universe because maybe we’re graduating in a few months. Sometimes, we don’t know. And it’s okay.

What’s not okay is that we stay in the same position. What’s not okay is that we don’t allow ourselves to get out of the circle. Throughout the hours that I’ve been thinking (and reading the warm messages that you sent me), I’ve been evaluating what’s really important in my life, to find out what’s next in my life. If videogames are important, then surely more time will be invested to raise my ranks. If my craft is important, then surely I have to start bringing out my camera more often. If academics are important, then obviously I have to read my notes during my free time. Clarity got to me when I woke up this morning and decided that the first thing I’ll do is eat breakfast with my family, then help out with the house chores (because it is a holiday), before I sit down and open the computer. 

When the universe gives us the opportunity to slow down, take it. Make the most out of it by reflecting on how far you’ve come, or by reflecting on why you’re still there. Make the most out of it by looking for scars, bruises, places where you are wounded. Patch yourself up. Refresh, Refuel, Recharge yourself. When you’re up and running, get moving!

You may never know what results come of your actions, but if you do nothing, there will be no results" - Mahatma Gandhi

Note: In times of help, talk to someone. Don’t expect them to say the most appropriate thing to make you feel better instantly, but appreciate them nonetheless because they’ll try. But most of all, appreciate them because listen to you.

- - - - -

tl;dr: Thank you for all the messages. I love you all. If you’re going through a phase of idleness, inactivity, and insignificance, get out of it. You can do it.
