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 69’s Topic: Structuring for success.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
When I first moved here to this new town, I had two main priorities.

1) Find a place to live. I in fact achieved this thanks to the help of some great friends. I couldn’t ask for a better living situation and deal than what I have, especially when getting on my feet is what I am after in the meantime.

2) Find a job. This took two months, and I went through another burst of depression while searching for work, but then things got better again once I found a job I really liked. So overall, this priority has been taken care of and then some.

With that said, both of these things have left me wondering about a certain thing that has been quite elusive for me, which is just structuring my time better for success.

I am well aware I live a decently busy life at the moment, but I know I am not maximizing every minute of precious time to make the most of it. Basically, I want to make sure I use my time wisely, and there are days I feel like I just wake up, go to work and then come home to sleep so I can repeat the process the next day again.

Nothing wrong with this per se, but I think I could do better.

And to do so, I will just need to structure my time with more precision while being disciplined enough to follow through with everything.

Day 23’s Topic: Good luck charms.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
I still have it.

The 功 necklace I bought at the anime store from the mall is still being carried with me each day. I freak out if I misplace it, even for a moment. I still don’t like wearing jewelry of any kind (I don’t even like the sensation of a watch around my wrist), so I just have this thing chilling in my pocket.

And sometimes, I’ll admit I like to take it out and twirl it around when I’m thinking. It’s only natural, right?

This necklace isn’t worth much by all means, but the 功 itself is still important to me. It acts as a constant reminder of how I can get myself out of any predicament.

功, again, means “success.” Its symbol components consist of “work” and “strength.” You need to work toward success and have the necessary strength to endure and make it happen. Isn’t this what life is all about?

功 is such a powerful and meaningful symbol. It just inspires you, doesn’t it? Continue reading

Everyday NhanSense – Day 10

Day 10’s Topic: Identity.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
“Nhan, who the heck are you?”

I guess it’s a good question you could probably ask me these days. And I wish I could give you a good, respectable answer. Truth be told, there are days where I don’t even know how to identify myself.

A lot has happened over the years. Some good things. Some bad things. And there are also some questionable things thrown into the mix as well. All of which has contributed in some shape or form toward creating my “identity” as a person to this day. However, let’s say our identities are like blank canvases, just waiting to be painted on with whatever comes to mind.

If you could take everything in your life and then splash it all over this canvas, what can people identity you as?

For some people, it’s pretty obvious.

Michael Jordan the basketball player.

Peyton Manning the quarterback.

Taylor Swift the singer.

There are millions of examples, but the point is these individuals all have their easily noted identities.

Abide by the Vibe: Ongoing Story

————————————————————————————————————–
Abide by the Vibe: Your everyday “vibe” is created on your own terms. Every action and thought will affect this “vibe” constantly. Will you choose to be fueled by a happy “vibe” or will you destroy yourself with a negative one?
————————————————————————————————————–

“We all abide by the vibe we create for ourselves.”

I like to believe that everything happens for a reason in life. Everyone has their respective story they are constantly telling.

Are some destined for happiness? Despair? Triumph? Failure? Or perhaps something completely unexpected?

To find out one’s inevitable ending, one must simply live life to see how the tale pans out.
