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 58’s Topic: Being weary.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
I have felt a lot more tired than usual. Being weary isn’t pleasant, but I guess it’s to be expected. Perhaps I have overworked myself a bit too much. It’s part of my natural work ethic.

I don’t like that feeling of being lazy when I can just be productive. In my mind, not moving at work isn’t work, so I don’t like taking breaks. I keep going and going, barely slowing down if I can help it.

But at the same time, I think I am hurting myself, at least somewhat. Gradually, I am probably overexerting my mind and body. My normal “warning” sign is I get bloody noses after work when I have really pushed myself for a given day.

And let’s just say I’ve been getting a few bloody noses more than I would like. Once in a while, sure, but a few back-to-back instances? Not good.

Not good at all.

But that’s the slight bind I am in. I guess technically speaking I should ease up, but I don’t want to. I can’t just request some time off because I need to work, as I do need to make sure I keep income coming in to get back on my feet.

In other words, I can’t afford not to work. But that’s all right. Most people have to tough it out when they are hurting a bit. I don’t mind biting down on the bullet when I need to, even if my body aches or feels a little too sore on certain days.

Day 19’s Topic: Cats.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
I miss my two kitties … Tux and Kuro. Like, you don’t even know. It was an unfortunate consequence of my move over to this new town I am living in now – I had to leave my two babies behind.

As much as I would have liked to bring my two cats with me, I had to make a tough decision about whether I would risk dragging them into unknown territory and if I could practically afford to keep taking care of them.

Ultimately, I made the right move, but it’s still a crappy choice to me nonetheless. In a perfect world, I could have taken my two kitties with me. But alas, life isn’t always fair in this regard.

But again, people don’t know how much I love these two ever-so-cuddly furballs. I was with them the since day one when they were brought home as tiny, adorable and puffy balls of joy who mewed at everything, as they were just always so curious about the world.

Daily NhanSense – Day 7


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 7’s Topic: Illness.


No matter how healthy you are, one is bound to get sick at some point.

I just spent the day lying in bed, but only after literally spending the entire previous night being unable to sleep due to severe pain.

Let’s just say trying to sleep holding still, while cradling what feels like a perpetual fireball in your stomach from going off because turning to your side makes it intensify, became quite the nighttime torture.

I am certainly glad that particular storm has passed, though I am definitely going to swear off a certain breakfast joint chain (I am not naming names) for life for giving me severe food poisoning.

Random Kanji Knowledge: Tora


————————————————————————————————————–
Random Kanji Knowledge: Kanji is a complicated means of conveying language. With literally thousands of symbols that have different readings depending on context, the layers of complexity can prove overwhelming. However, beyond the squiggly lines lies sophistication to those patient and diligent enough to learn. Kanji is really cool in this regard.

The stroke order.
