Daily NhanSense – Day 1

Standard


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.

Pet Peeve: Undervaluing Anxiety

Standard

Everyone deals with anxiety at some point in their lives, but some people have it a lot worse than others.

For instance, meeting strangers can be difficult for me. I can take awhile to get used to people, which leads to cases where think I am extremely anti-social in this sense.

Nonetheless, I think it is important for people to show tact for those who get a bit more anxious than the average, “normal” person. I have long accepted that I am not like others when it comes to this kind of stuff.

Heck, it is an everyday battle with some sort of anxiety-based struggle. To undervalue anxiety can be borderline insulting.

Pet Peeve: Not Being Honest about Yourself

Standard



Let’s get real here: everyone is different. It is tough enough that the world expects us to behave and act a certain way. If you do not conform, then something is wrong with you. Or so the world wants you to think.

Is there anything inherently wrong with wanting to be a special snowflake? A social outcast, even? Perhaps. Maybe. Or it all could be a matter of perception.

I think things would be a lot better if everyone could at least try to be “themselves” instead of putting up facades. Someone being fake is annoying to me.

Pet Peeve: Littering

Standard

PICK IT UP!

I don’t care who you think you are: no one is too good to throw away their own trash. I do not even count myself as an environmentalist or anything of that sort. I just think litterbugs are extremely lazy people. Continue reading
