(20-25 August 2020) Things are slowly picking up! Here are some of the things that I have been up to:
The internet was down until last Friday, so on Thursday, I did a bit of ‘reset and realign’ journaling. It’s just an activity where I try to see where I am in my 5-year plan timeline, and if the things that I currently spend most time and energy help me reach or my personal goals. I try to do this once in a while because I easily get lost into bad habits and negative thinking. I learned about this in one of Lavendaire’s videos. Go check her out if you’re into self-help and personal development!
I also found time to write out all the things I plan to do with this blog. I’m not going to go into detail because I might jinx it and end up with a growing list of drafts haha but I love that I’ve found the same passion I had for blogging when I was younger. I just wish I still had my first camera with me right now so I can show post better pictures. I sold it last year to my best friend because I haven’t used in so long. I have regrets from time to time but I am happy that it’s found a new home.
I joined the first episode of Medyo Late Night with Jim and Saab! It’s a live show version of the Wake Up with Jim and Saab podcast. I had sooooooooooo much fun! Although, there was a segment where they talked about a certain guy Colin Farrell and the movies he was in and I couldn’t relate. Nevertheless, I had a great time, even joined with the rest of the Intelligent People (what we call ourselves as patrons of the show, also Podkids because Jim is the Podfather) for a post-show Discord party! I am too shy to make friends but I do plan to reach out soon. It’s such a lovely community!
I got slightly busy with e-mails and admission forms lately. As I have mentioned in one of my previous entries, I am going back to school this incoming semester. It’s surreal to be actually going to the institute I once thought I wouldn’t have the chance to get into. I am 100% scared and pressured but I’m trying to shift my mindset that it’s not anymore just an endeavor for personal gain but rather a mission to contribute to science for development in my community, this way I am more hopeful and determined to work hard and do my best.
I guess that’s it for now. I might go back to studying after I publish this post. I am studying programming ahead because I have zero background knowledge and my program advisor suggested that I start getting familiar with it since it’s one of the main things we do in the marine physical sciences. Super exciting!
Thank you so much for reading!
