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 76’s Topic: Creativity.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
I strongly believe I am a creative individual. I have always been someone who likes to think outside the box in a variety of ways.

Ultimately, my ambition for the future is to become a content creator of sorts. I want to make stuff with my creative stamp to it, especially things I could be particularly proud of to show anyone.

I certainly have a passion and appreciation for those who like to think beyond linear means, so I want to make sure my own projects prove worthwhile.

Day 70’s Topic: Exhaustion.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Oh my gosh, what an exhausting day, but in a good way.

I haven’t had a day off on a Friday for a long time, so it was nice to chill out and run some errands around town without needing to work.

Free time is such a luxury for me at the moment, but I feel better knowing I can just have a few more hours to myself to do whatever I want with, and so I try to make the best of it.

As soon as I really get my life under control, this is when I can really let things take effect.

But alas, it’s one step at a time for now. Continue reading

Day 64’s Topic: Joy of living.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Your life is as wonderful as you choose to view it as, and I have certainly accepted this notion over the years.

Work hard for stability, and then squeeze in some things that make you happy. This is life in action. It’s not supposed to be extremes of happiness or sadness, but it’s more of a mix of both constantly alternating.

Obviously, you should focus on the former rather than the latter. It’s better to be happy than sad, but sometimes life throws you stuff to test your fortitude.

Day 55’s Topic: Determination.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
I do believe destiny has something important in store for me, and I am not just saying that. I do like to think that everything that has happened in the past few years, both the good and the bad, will make itself clear in due time.

I was at my wit’s end at one point, pushed to a breaking point I never want to experience again and so I continue to live each day with the mentality of changing myself for the better.

Be stronger.

Be smarter.

Be this.

Be that.

Whatever I can do within my own personal limits, I will try a bit harder at surpassing my capabilities. This in itself is where I derive my sense of determination, my willpower and that intangible thing called heart when the going gets tough.

I will admit I have had my share of moments where I wanted to buckle under the pressure, but perseverance lifted me through the troubling times. And now, as I approach another threshold in my life, I want to take my determination to the next level.

Day 46’s Topic: Frustration.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Ugh, today was a day I wish I could just pry open my head and take a look at what’s bothering me. Because, oh boy, today was quite a doozy, emotionally anyway.

I just suddenly felt super frustrated near the end of my shift at work for some reason. I do not know exactly why in the sense that it just came up abruptly, literally out of nowhere. Maybe it was a case of my mood swings going a bit haywire, but then again I am pretty good at keeping the emotions under wraps for a majority of the time.

Ack, I wish I could just toss away these stupid feelings. It makes me feel unmotivated, just not passionate enough to stir up some momentum.

Again, life has been more than fine for me. Better than OK, honestly.

Lots of ups and less downs to drag me down into the pits of despair and self-loathing. But regardless, I have felt like a mess in the past few hours. I am scared. I am frightened.

But why?!

Day 43’s Topic: Days off.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Phew.

I have to say that getting days off is really nice, especially after a whole week on the job. I get Sundays off, so that’s pretty sweet.

Let’s just say after spending lots of time unemployed before, where having an abundance of free time was the norm, it just feels right to have that one day to yourself. It makes those days where you don’t have to work that more special and significant.

You can plan for that given day, establish a sense of structure and really live it up when the day finally comes.

I feel a touch tired, a bit more exhausted than usual, but my body is growing accustomed to this new work schedule. Working at the restaurant has been good. We’re a busy restaurant, so every day is generally a rush of customers from start to finish with limited downtime.

I prefer it this way, anyway. It keeps me busy. I don’t feel like I am standing around twiddling my thumbs, plus I have great coworkers who make the job a lot more pleasant. I get along with just about everyone there.

Day 34’s Topic: Determination.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Time to get the game face on!

With stability in place of a job to pay the bills and the means of actually taking care of myself like an adult, AKA I don’t have to starve anymore like some grueling nights I had to endure, I can finally start to plan for the immediate future in terms of projects and ambitions.

The past two months tested my limits, forced me to rethink my life from the ground up and above all else made me grow up and fast. Those random things you take for granted like shelter and food don’t seem like much until you’re backed up to a wall with limited options.

Nonetheless, that particular part of the storm has passed. It’s time to move forward with my various plans.

The first order of business is just to establish some sense of consistency throughout the week. A little structure goes a long way, after all. I have made it a habit to do things like write a blog post every evening at a certain time to acclimate myself, mainly so I don’t become lazy as a writer. Hey now, it’s worked so far, right?

On top of that, I now sleep and wake up at roughly the same times, so that stupid insomnia issue is basically taken care of for now. But now, I have to base my life around my work schedule, using my free time to chip away at my projects and planning.

Some writing here. Some research here. A little bit of this. A little bit more of that.

This ensures I can get stuff done to feel accomplished without overwhelming myself. As a reminder, that sense of “willpower” is a finite resource within the human body. You can’t just go autopilot and not expend willpower. It’s always going to be used, but sometimes you can scrape by with stretching it around, otherwise you will burn out.

It’s always a good time to feel determined! Here is some inspirational music to complement that determined attitude!
