Everyday NhanSense – Day 5

——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.

Day 5’s Topic: Heroes and villains.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
I have always loved superhero stuff, ever since I was a kid. There is something about seeing an individual/team of people do great things in the name of “justice,” whatever that really means. Maybe it’s the rad costumes or perhaps it’s my inner child always thinking that “being good” is what people are meant to be throughout their lives.

Some of my favorite superheroes are common ones such as Batman, Spider-Man and whatnot, with some obscure characters like Huntress being in the mix.

But beyond the capes and superhero emblems, I think it’s the notion of good versus evil that fascinates me so. Constantly, we are all challenged each day to be our own makeshift hero or villain. I believe everyone has to choose between both respective sides on a daily basis.

For instance, if someone were to collapse on the ground, the “good” thing to do would be to go over and help them out, right? Conversely, let’s say you instead go over and kick the person a few times while they are literally down, you take their wallet from the pocket and then scram. Is this act “evil” or are you just a rotten person?

Another example – you’re in the supermarket. You can go buy this bag of chips on the shelf with money or you can somehow slip it into your backpack and walk outside with it. Either way, you’ll end up with a bag of chips in your possession afterward, but even this simple situation has a lot more to it.

Everyday NhanSense – Day 3


——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.

Day 3’s Topic: Peace of mind.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
It’s almost 6 a.m. PST as I type this blog post out. As expected, it’s a side effect of having panic seep in all at once. The amount of worries have begun to pile up, causing me to experience insomnia and inconsistent sleep schedules. For the past few weeks in particular, I can’t say that I have hit the hay at the same time each night.

I have had to force myself to lie in bed and just hope I can doze off and catch some Z’s. I am not necessarily someone who needs a lot of sleep to function properly, but I’ll point out how I do have a restless mind multiple times throughout a typical evening.

Do you know what I mean? It’s that in-between area with your mind thinking thoughts and that state where you are kind of dreaming, but you’re not. One could say I take that trip to la la land often during bedtime. Gosh, I wish I could just lay my head on the pillow, flip that switch to tell my brain, “Go rest now” and then turn in for the night. Heh, if only it were that easy … if only. Continue reading

Everyday NhanSense – Day 1

——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.

Day 1’s Topic: Another beginning.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–

Hello again, everyone.

Long time no see. Well, about 43 days or so to be exact. But who’s counting? To be blunt, I was starting to miss blogging each day. Don’t mind the blog’s look for now. I am still fiddling with everything, and I hope to get all the appearance and post formats set in stone. I was content with the previous appearance, but something different now and then is healthy for one’s sanity. It keeps things from going stagnant … hence the name change to “Everyday NhanSense” versus “Daily NhanSense.”

This blog has been my personal, online sanctuary of sorts. I started this blog years ago to help me find solace in the face of everyday life. Whether it was through rough patches from bouts with personal doubt or embracing happier moments that sprung up here and there, this blog acted as the metaphorical glue to bind everything together.

At the risk of sounding melodramatic, without this blog, I don’t even know where my mental state would be as I sit down to type these words out. As I often tell others, this blog acts as my “pulse” to remind people that I am still in fact alive. Going on hiatus for such a long time proved challenging after a while.

I had never taken such a long break from blogging on this site before, considering that the longest gap of inactivity I can recall was maybe a few days tops but not more than a whole month. It was like I was neglecting something that had been paramount to my day-to-day operations.

Daily NhanSense – Day 37


Daily NhanSense: Every day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.

Day 37’s Topic: Talking it out.


I am going through a lot of real-life, serious trauma right now. It’s reaching a point where I need to talk to people about it, but I know I don’t have exactly the best track record of being everyone’s favorite person to chat about stuff.

I am scared, extremely concerned for my own well-being and quite frankly unsure about what is going to happen in just the next few days. I need to talk to the right people fast …

Daily NhanSense – Day 36


Daily NhanSense: Every day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.

Day 36’s Topic: Stability.


I feel like I have nothing to stand on anymore. That’s what where my life is going at the moment – into a downward spiral. It’s not like things were on a good foundation to begin with … Not at all.

You think things are OK, and then whoosh! You’re falling.

Will I hit rock bottom for real or will I somehow save myself on the way down?

Who knows …
