Salud! (or why I’m writing happy again)

I highly doubt that anyone missed me during my 3-month, unplanned hiatus. Honestly, I stopped using Tumblr because no one around me used it anymore. I used to be a cool social media website back when I was in college, studying theater and trying to figure out my life. I still am, only with less art and a little less stress. Because I don’t know, I realized that I was really paranoid and unsettled a lot when I was in college. Maybe I was a little bit overstimulated by what’s happening around me with all the parties, film screenings, classes, and college sports that was happening around. Oh, and also this pressure so keep up with a certain kind of crowd. Everyone was idealistic, but not everyone necessarily did something to make it reality. I may be one of those people who just kept on dreaming and dreaming but wasn’t actually sure where I was going. I thought I did, and now, things turned out quite differently but for the good. I honestly did not think that I would be writing for a living right now, albeit not full-time but still, it’s been quite a stable job. Daring and unpredictable sometimes but for the most part, it’s given me time to think, make mistakes, make more mistakes, break people’s hearts, break my heart, distrust myself, and ultimately, picked myself back up… I’m starting to write more and more for pleasure now. Writing used to be a difficult chore. It always is but at least I feel like I’m getting more out of it now. I don’t where it’s going to lead me but I think I’ve gotten to a place where it’s actually served me and I’ve heard feedback from people that I should keep doing it, which was great. There may not be many writers around where I’m from, but at least it’s given be the platform to, like I said, mess up and learn tons from my mistakes. Not to mention being scared to death that what I’m writing might anger some people. I guess that’s the point of all of it. I’m not afraid to write anymore because I’m offending people. I’m writing because I do actually have something to say, I’m quite a respectable and level-headed person and I deserve to express my mind and be heard. Because otherwise, it all just builds up inside me and rots inside of me until I get random side effects that I don’t have any control over. And I didn’t know that could happen to people or to me. Maybe that’s why I keep on writing, so I can keep on living normally. Besides, it’s free unlike acting where I have to wait to get auditions before I can even express myself onstage. More on that later. But, I’m just glad that I’m doing this right now. Oh, it was all because of this website. Might be a little late to the party, but I’m still having fun:

Before turning 25 years old…

I don’t turn 25 until February 2016 but it got me thinking what my goals should be. I feel like as much as I’ve been living in the present more often, I haven’t got a sense of what my life could be like when I hit the quarter century mark. So, here are some of the things that I had in mind (I also thought Tumblr makes the perfect medium for these kinds of ramblings about life):

  • Pay all my undergraduate student loans (I’m about 30% paid right now)
  • Live in an apartment on my own
  • Work a full-time job (Believe it or not, I’ve never had an actual full-time job my entire life except I guess being a student)
  • Write a screenplay or a web series
  • Save enough to spend at least six months in the Philippines ($10k-20k?)
  • Travel on my own
  • Run a half-marathon (I got the rest of my life to run a full one)
  • Get a four-pack (Not as gratuitous as a six-pack)
  • Be in an actual relationship (I’ve dated people but never had an actual, tangible, I-don’t-live-3,000-miles-away kind of relationship)
  • Buy stocks
  • Drive from coast to coast

What did you do before you turned 25?


Remember me as a Time of Day turned 4 today!

No one’s in love like us, right? It’s so weird. What are we gonna do?

Nothing. We just gotta… ride it out.

The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord! Many people today might find it difficult to see themselves as “good” in the eyes of God, but did you know that in the original Greek, this word means “strong” like a warrior? In other words, when you stand strong, when you are willing to fight the good fight of faith, you are giving God something to work with. He is ordering your steps. He’s making a way when there seems to be no way. He’s clearing a path for you, and He is delighting in you. That means He is pleased with your attitude of courage. He is pleased that you are taking a stand for what is right. He is pleased that you are putting Him first place and relying completely on Him.
Remember, God loves your passion for Him. He loves it when you come boldly to His throne of grace. He is honored when you stand and fight the good fight of faith. If you are facing difficulty today, know that God wants to lift you up and give you His strength. Receive it by faith today. Dig your heels in knowing that He is ordering your steps; and when God is leading you, He’s always leading you in the path of victory!

Glass Barrier

My glass barrier hides my pain so that no one has to deal with it, and is almost impossible to break. Of course, it cracks and my emotions spill out some times, but only a few have completely shattered it and saw who I really am. Thank you to all who have done so, you have no idea how much I love you all
