Why are you so lazy? Why are you so stubborn? Why are you frustrated?
I always put the blame on my zodiac sign every time someone points out how lazy turn out to be. I’d rather choose the word ‘Procrastinate’.

I always pinpoint my zodiac sign as the culprit on why I tend to procrastinate. I’ve been a bit unsatisfied the past few weeks because I feel like I haven’t done anything significant, yet I often impose too much pressure on myself to do better. Although I maintain a travel blog, there is a big misconception that I travel all the time and I rarely stay at home. That is not the case especially when I am in Metro Manila.
The reason on why I am feeling frustrated for months now has something to do with WAITING. No, I am not waiting for the love of my life (he’s on a year-long holiday break to whereverland). I am waiting for something important and this thing is stopping me from pursuing some of the things I’ve been planning to do.
At 3PM today, Maire and I met up in our favorite coffee shop. We were supposed to watch a movie with high school friends, but had to cancel it the last minute due to the heavy rain downpour. Earlier this afternoon, I rushed to the bank to pay for something very important.
I remember feeling really stressed since I need to print something before I proceed to the bank. The internet shop is full of students playing computer games and I just begged the owner if I can use the internet for a few minutes to download the document I need to print. When she gave me the go signal, I immediately went to my inbox and downloaded the needed file. The woman in-charge of printing stuff transfered the file in a program and was about to print it when all of a sudden, the electricity was switched off. Brownout!
I wished that the electricity will be back real soon since I really need to print that document. I don’t want to postpone an important appointment since there is a tendency that the date will be moved to a later day. After five minutes, the lights are on. Woohoo!
I had my important document printed and made it to the bank fifteen minutes before it closed. I’m just glad that despite the challenges I’ve been through that day, I was able to do that important task. No rain and brownout can stop the bull!
Last month, I slept in seven rooms comfortably with expectations that I’m about to experience something new when I wake up. Don’t you just love that feeling of anticipation everytime you travel?
It’s been weeks since I arrived home from my trip. I am trying my very best to catch up with the backlogs and I guess I am slowly but surely putting these experiences into words. I am very thankful with every opportunity that comes my way and I love that feeling of independence.
Don't give up on me.
Right now, I am blogging from my room, seated at the bed and I kind of dislike the fact that I am thinking too much about various stuff. First, my sleeping pattern is ruined again. I tried to sleep a few hours ago, but I woke up when the electric fan started to make unnecessary noise. I can imagine it yelling the words “Fix me!” to me as I stare at it. I think this electric fan is the most loyal yet the most abused thing here in my room. I use it everyday yet I rarely clean it.
