Everyday NhanSense – Day 6


——————————————————————————————————————————————–
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 6’s Topic: Burying the past.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
As I restructure this blog to my liking and continue to add more elements, while cleaning up the aspects that I don’t need anymore and whatnot, I came to realize that I have been keeping a lot of things around in an unhealthy way.

I am someone who dreads throwing things away unless I absolutely need to. In fact, I can say without hesitation that I probably cling on to many things, both in real life and online, beyond that of a normal person.

But it had to be done. It may not seem like much on the surface, but I decided to delete the entire “Past Blog Posts” page off this blog. All of the content within the page still exists on this blog, so it’s not like I destroyed the posts themselves with fire.

However, deleting the page itself was quite liberating, I have to say …

Don’t get me wrong, though. A lot of posts on that page are/were in fact important to me in different shapes and forms. I poured my heart and soul into writing out those posts. They may not mean much to a lot of people, but they certainly hold a lot of personal value in my book.

But again, it had to be done. It just had to be done.

For my sake, I needed to think about burying the past. Yes, there were good times reflected in some of those blog posts. There were some crummy times discussed in some posts as well. Regardless of what was showcased in those particular posts, I just had to stop caring about the whole page and just discard it entirely.

Everyday NhanSense – Day 2


——————————————————————————————————————————————–
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 2’s Topic: Believing with faith in your heart.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
As it seems like I run out of resources and options in my current situation, I feel compelled to turn toward that one particular “F” word to help remedy some of my pain and worries.

Faith.

I am not a religious person by any means. I do not go to church or anything like that, so I don’t want to come off as preachy and in your face like a Bible salesman knocking on your door. However, these past few years have taught me to understand the notion of God and why believing in a higher power is both helpful and even therapeutic, especially when things appear bleaker each day for me.

Without faith, I would have slipped into an even darker place that I am all too familiar with … a place where I would never want anyone else to experience willingly. And let me tell you – it is all too easy to succumb to that particular darkness. It sneaks up to you when you are feeling down in the dumps, and then it blankets you in its ebony veil until traces of light start to fade away and disappear.

You become lulled into a sense of ease, but this is a false feeling. It’s not that your troubles are slipping away, because the rest of the world is going move on regardless, but instead it’s more like you are growing numb to both the good and the bad in your life.

In a sense, you transform into an empty husk wrapped tightly by scary thoughts, tucked away until someone or something shines some glimmer of hope your direction to awaken you, finally, from your deep stupor that will in fact consume you.

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 11


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 11’s Topic: Thoughts.


I am someone who tends to have a wandering mind, one constantly on the go with thoughts racing in and out.

I always work on various “projects” throughout the week, but I think it is about time I accelerated my efforts to bring them to fruition. It can be tough at times due to how the sense of “willpower” is in fact finite, and you have to replenish this willpower when it becomes depleted.

I wish I could have endless willpower, and then I would probably have a million things finished by now. Nonetheless, I am still human, and as a human I can only do so much.

This doesn’t mean, however, that I cannot put in an extra bit of effort on my part to squeeze out even a little more productivity.

Day 9’s Topic: Life.


Leave it to an anime song geared toward children to resonate so much with how my heart is feeling right now about life …

Pendulum★Cute - “One Step”

Translated Meaning of Lyrics
Now, catch that heart-pounding dream and cry your tears to release
Step forward to the field as the game starts
And take a fabulous one step to see a miracle

I realized that strength isn’t given
So I reach for it, one step after another
As I keep on working, never ever stopping

Even if walls or fierce winds stand in my way
I take a step forward, drawing my trump card called “Courage”
And believe in the story of victory Continue reading

Daily NhanSense – Day 1


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 1’s Topic: Blogging.


Hey there, everyone.

So I have decided to change the blogging structure of this site from here on out, and hopefully I can stick with it consistently. Let’s just say I have grown weary and annoyed at myself for not being able to blog in great deal as much as I would like.

I don’t really have anyone else to blame but myself for this. There just happen to be days where I do in fact want to blog with a lot more oomph in my posts, but it’s tricky finding enough motivation at times.

It kills me a little on the inside whenever I do those “throwaway” posts with very little substance. However, the daily motivational picture/message of some sort will still be part of this site as well. I just think it’s nice seeing some kind of day-to-day, uplifting quote, so I will keep posting them.

But why the change in blogging? Basically, the end goal is to improve myself to the point where this site can be something really substantial and special.

I started this blog a few years ago as an outlet to vent my frustrations and to keep my writing techniques sharp, but a lot has happened since then. Continue reading

English Translation of Lyrics
With courage, we will make our dreams come true
With an indomitable spirit, let’s run toward the future

Always guides us on our way

We’re not going to compromise on things we love
We’ll seize whatever time we have left
