Emptiness

Since the bf and the dog is out this weekend, I have the whole flat for myself. So it means the whole place is tidy and clean (which is not kept when the boys are home). You know the dog shed its fur and the bf does not put his glasses and/or plates in the dishwasher.

But I am not happy right now. I miss them. I feel empty without them. I cannot wait till they come back from the trip. I promise that I am not going to complain again.

This post is my response to The Daily Post Photo Challenge, State of Mind.

Cannot be unseen

Bookshops are one of the shops that I always check whenever I am in a mall or out in the city center. It is also my second favorite place next to the library.

I was in the city center two weeks ago. It was very cold but sunny so I did not mind walking for a couple of hours just for window shopping. I went inside a bookshop which also sells video games and checked some games and books on sale, hence I found the books about the human body parts. I simply could not unsee the books because they are colorful and the titles are quite catchy, they are also located in the middle shelf so it is easy to see. I checked one of the books and most of them are just naked pictures of the human body.

So the saying is true, nudity sells (cannot be unseen). šŸ˜›

This post is my take on The Daily Post photo challenge of the week, vibrant.

The biggest obstacle of them all: Procrastination

If there’s one thing I shouldĀ never do again, it is delaying to changeĀ the bedsheets.

Last night my skin got rashes and it was itchy. I tried not to scratch because I don’t want to make it worse but I couldn’t help it. I scratched my skin and thought that after that I could just sleep. But no. It didn’t work.

So what I did, I tried some of the breathing techniques that I’ve learned from my yoga class and my mindfulness books. It worked for 15 minutes. Then my skin started itching again so I was awake again but really exhausted. I’ve been trying to remember if I ate something that I’m allergic to but no I haven’t ate anything that would irritate my skin.

Then it came to me that my bf and I were supposed to change the bedsheet last weekend. That bedsheet has been thereĀ for a month (or maybe two) already. We haven’t forgotten it but since we’re both preoccupied by our games, trips and other stuff we were just postponing it.

So I’ve learned our lesson. Don’t procrastinate because it will only lead to another procrastination (I actually have plans today but because I didn’t get enough sleep last night, I got sick today and have to stay at home.) and irritation.

This post is my response to the Daily Prompt assignment this week.

Cthulhu Junior

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Gone, But NotĀ Forgotten.”

For this week’s photo challenge, I have a shot of a baby squid that we found at Molopolo Beach Philippines this summer 2014. I admit that I love to eat squids but this one is an exemption because it’s still small and cute. Besides I don’t think that pissing off Cthulhu is a good idea.

So yes we let it go. It’s time to move on.

Past, Present and Future (I’m Confused!)

Daily PromptĀ : One-Way StreetĀ Congrats! Youā€™re the owner of a new Ā TIME MACHINE. The catch? It comes in two models, each travelingĀ one way only: the past OR the future. Which do YOU CHOOSE, and why?

If I had a time machine that would take me to either the past or the future, I think that I would not use it unless if something evil is threatening the existence of the whole humanity. In most of the movies that I have seen, people who has time machine has been given the chance to change the past/future in order to fix the present time but I still cannot understand how going back in time (for example) and talking to your younger self would help you (You in the present). It seems that when the past version of you takes your advice then it would affect what you are in the present? Does it mean that you have copies of yourself? We are talking of one time machine here right? So it does not make sense to me how going back to the past would change the present or future if your present is already happening.

My money is not good enough.

The Daily Prompt for today: Ready, Set, Done. Write about anything, unfiltered and unedited for ten minutes!

When it comes to spending money, I admit that I ain’t perfect. Sometimes I have to tighten my belt because my costs seem to exceed my budget for the month. I hate it when it happens that’s why I try my best to avoid temptations, avoid impulse shopping and I always findalternative brands or products (which are cheaper) to the normal stuff that I usually buy every month. I’m happy that I’m doing good these past few months because there is growth in my savings account. It’s not much but at least my balance didn’t turn into a zero or worse a minus.

It’s always good to have extra money just in case of emergency. However some people have a little understanding of me (for example) having some extra cash. I’m not a fulltime worker nor a big earner but when a friend or some friends of mine needed help, I would try my best to help. Last month, a friend send me a message online saying that she had an emergency and she needed X-amount of money. I lent her but only one fourth of the X-amount that she asked for because I don’t have so much and besides I have bills to pay. She said that it’s okay and that any amount will do but when she got the money, she was still asking for more. I got surprised because she said it’s okay but I replied her politely and said that I can’t lend her more anymore because I still have bills to pay.

I feel bad because I can’t give the help that she really needed but at the same time I feel that she’s just using me because she needed something and I feel like I wasn’t appreciated. Oh well, let’s hope that I’m just wrong.

But then, let me ask you guys. How do you deal with friends/family who borrow money from you?

Daily Prompt: She (The Neighbor) Drives Me Crazy

I’m not a morning person. I love to sleep the whole day whenever I have a day off Ā from work but I don’t mind waking up early for the sake of work, errands and travels. However waking up before the alarm clock rings annoys me. Grr! I need that hour, minute and seconds of sleep.

So I have this neighbor for more than a year now. She’s in her 40’s, married and has two beautiful kids. I’ve never talked to her nor even said hi to her because when I’m home I spend most of my time sleeping, chatting with friends, reading, playing video games or cooking. I have patience when it comes to people but this one is an exemption. I always wake up to her loud voice every morning. Her voice is worse than my alarm clock. It’s like a mini gun with unlimited bullets! I just can’t understand why she always have to talk that way to her kids almost every morning. I’ve really wanted to go down and ask her to shut up erhmm.. I mean to tone down everytime I wake up but that time of the day is when I’m most weak and tired. Yeah I know I should talk to her about this problem but I’m afraid that I might sound rude.

Oh well.
