Day 97’s Topic: Cellphones.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Well, talk can be quite cheap, but I backed up my words from yesterday.

I went and bought a smartphone. Finally. Take a gander at the amazing transition from the old (we’re talking five years here!) to the new(ish), as technology is always rapidly evolving.

Nonetheless, I can’t help it. Don’t get me wrong. I loved my old phone. It was with me through thick and thin, through some of my most troubling times and whatnot. But at the end of the day, technology was not its forte. It was certainly lacking a lot of features that are so mainstream now.

But the phone did its job and then some for a long while. I just needed to text and make phone calls, though the luxury of being able to snap pictures or browse the internet proved too enticing to pass up.

I just bit the bullet and went through with the purchase of a smartphone, mainly as a means of catching up a bit with modern times. Continue reading

Day 96’s Topic: Upgrading.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
I think it’s time to get some upgrades in my life.

In regards to outdated technology, I have grown annoyed at my lack of updated equipment.

I may be poor, but even those at the bottom of the barrel can still scrape together something more modern. There are certainly days where I feel like I am just barely above not having to write stuff down by candlelight.

Exaggeration aside, it’s important to upgrade to keep up with the times. Continue reading

Day 95’s Topic: Not quite alone in tough times.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Looking back a few years, I guess I can admit I was pretty much one step away from being hospitalized. I doubt my family would have let it happen, but I was in a pretty bad spot upstairs.

At the very least, I think I should have technically been placed in some kind of care. What I got instead was a lot of mental meandering for quite awhile. I was too darn embarrassed to seek help, let alone be brave enough to admit I had problems. It was a paradox of sorts.

But believe me, and I do mean this, I had my share of problems at the time.

My family was basically very hush-hush about my situation. I didn’t really like others knowing what I was up to. I am sure the neighbors probably wondered, but we all have our respective issues and personal dilemmas to deal with, right?

Day 94’s Topic: Cats.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Lately, part of my life has felt somewhat empty, but empty in the sense that I don’t have something to take care of other than myself.

With this in mind, the idea of me getting a cat in my situation has become more and more intriguing.

It’s starting to become an everyday occurrence I think about having a feline friend again to call my own. Ugh, I really want a kitty or two, but I do worry about the finances. If I were to get a cat, I wouldn’t be cheap about the whole spiel either.

I would want to make sure the cat is thoroughly entertained and is comfortable living at my place. I have two whole floors with a bit of extra room, but I would definitely keep the cat(s) indoors out of fear of something bad happening outside.

Obviously, food is something I have to pay for, along with litter and some other essentials. Not to mention, God forbid, my cat(s) in the near future don’t run into any health problems that would force me to go to the vet.

But otherwise, money aside, I think the companionship of having a cat would far exceed any dollar amount I could ever imagine in my current situation. Heck, there have been plenty of days I felt like having a cat to pet would have made my ordeals seem less daunting, putting my mind at ease. Continue reading

Day 93’s Topic: Perspective.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
It’s been a chill Sunday. I was hoping to explore the town for my day off, but Mother Nature had different plans.

But it’s cool. It goes to show that I still need things like a car to travel practically in this weather, yet I am fine with lazy days just taking it easy while indoors.

Heck, from a perspective standpoint, things are just fine and dandy.

I have my health.

I have a job.

I have food to eat.

This, collectively, is a lot better than what it was a few months ago.

For instance, food is something we all take for granted. Meals are things you need to eat to keep fueling your body, but what happens when you have limited money for said food?

To give you an idea what I mean, this is what I bought for lunch today because I could. Continue reading

Everyday NhanSense – Day 92

Day 92’s Topic: Slow and steady.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
There are certainly days I think I am moving “too slow” in life, like I am falling way behind in some race we all are supposed to be aware of, for some reason. I have former friends and peers who have already landed their big-time careers, started a family, moved to exciting cities to live in and so forth.

But then again, this was a huge mistake I had to come to grips with many years ago, as a wise friend once pointed out to me – it doesn’t matter about them because you have to live your own life.

And this is the correct way to perceive this kind of stuff. After all, we all advance through life at different paces because we are all in fact vary from person-to-person. In strengths, in weaknesses, in ambitions … etc.

Because there is in fact so much diversity among individuals, why do we try to compare ourselves so much like we are anything but apples and oranges, respectively, to one another?

One person has what it takes to be a great scientist. Another person isn’t that great at science, but is an excellent artist in their own right. There could be literally endless comparisons, but we all somehow want to think of one another as “the same” when we totally are not.

Ultimately, when I finally came to realize that my own destiny, my own divine plan laid out by God himself, was certainly not going to pan out the way I had envisioned, I found some sense of closure. I will admit it did really suck at first. Heck, it almost destroyed me. But the amount of lessons I learned as a result of everything, and I am still learning by the way, have all been valuable in so many ways.

Day 91’s Topic: Being the center of attention.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Being a shy person usually means a lot of time spent hiding from the limelight, like it’s something I should be wary of because it’s gonna melt my skin off from its intensity. But in all honesty, I have developed a taste for the limelight to some degree over the years.

I like being the center of the attention in certain instances. Don’t get me wrong. I feel like I probably turn bright red when too many eyes are on me, but small batches of this kind of attention does a lot of wonder for my self-esteem.

Growing up, I was always incredibly shy about a lot of things, so sticking out was something I really avoided doing when I could. I was always someone who hated raising his hand up in class to chime in, for example, and I absolutely dreaded doing presentations in front of everyone.
