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

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 …

Daily NhanSense – Day 33


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 33’s Topic: Writing.


I want to think that writing is my knack, as in it’s something God wants me to do with my life. There are times with this blog I really do believe I can blast out a good read, and then there are some other days where I do not get the creative juices flowing enough to muster anything worthwhile.

I have a particular fondness for using simple, but easy-to-understand writing because I opt for clarity rather than the fancy stuff. Journalism school taught me well, don’t you think?

Daily NhanSense – Day 31


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 31’s Topic: Understanding yourself.


What do you do when you are your own mystery?

That’s what I want to figure out these days. It’s odd because I guess everyone should know themselves the best, but there are times where I feel like even I don’t understand what I am about anymore.

Quite peculiar. Quite peculiar, indeed.

Daily NhanSense – Day 30


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 30’s Topic: Loneliness.


Having anti-social tendencies sucks, mainly when the feeling of loneliness starts creeping into your soul.

I understand myself. It’s in my nature. I have a lot of days where I just want my own space, to do my own thing, to be alone, but then there are other times where I yearn for some social contact.

It’s almost an everyday coin toss in this regard, and I never know what I will feel like throughout the week. I wish I could compromise with my anxiety and go like 50/50 with it, but that’s a lot of wishful thinking.

Like today, for instance, I just want to trap myself in my own personal bubble. I don’t want to be around people, but I kind of have to.

As a result, I create an awkward bind where I feel anxious about being near others, but I’m compelled to do so and thus I am going to feel all kinds of strange for the rest of the day.

Talk about a lot of conflicted feelings. Sheesh.

Daily NhanSense – Day 25


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 25’s Topic: Life.


I want all of this confusion to go away from my life.

I hate feeling like I understand what I need to do, and then the uneasiness comes back in full swing.
