…is currently running down my spine. My mentor asked for my permission to let one of his friends, who is more experienced in writing and may have a lot opinions, read my manuscript. Of course, I said “yes”, but I’m a bit anxious of what he could say about my amateur work. I’m totally getting myself ready for any negative feedback, which I’m expecting to be present, a lot.
Well, I’m back to school and I can already feel the stress of requirements and expectations of professors. The creative spirit in me is beginning to prowl around my mind. I’m bound to be back into writing, which I have to juggle.
So far, I think I’ll be making posts on Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sunday, as a temporary blogging schedule.
Let’s do what we live for, making art. Let’s be inspired.
I’m off to do some schoolwork!
Easter usually reminds me of my religious obligations, but they also remind me of family reunions in the past and most of all, my childhood. Easter egg hunts, chocolate eggs & bunnies, and Peeps marshmallows were the highlight of my Easter.
I haven’t had a Peeps marshmallow in almost 10 years, because I haven’t found any here in my part of the world. Yes, I’m 20 and I still crave for those colorful marshmallows.
Happy Easter and light, fluffy inspiration to everyone!
I don’t have a definite blogging schedule yet, but I’ve been thinking about some routine things to do, like a Short Story Saturday or Movie Review Monday. Because of Holy Week and studying at a Catholic university, I have yet to experience a full school week. This one reason why I haven’t finalized anything yet, but I will have a definite schedule soon, I promise!
If you have suggestions, please feel free to comment! 🙂
And the stress from academic work will get my creative juices running properly. Writing is one of my best stress busters.
Be inspired to make the world more beautiful!
After a day of completing my religious obligations for Good Friday, I come home to my blog and find a very delightful comment. It’s one I wasn’t really expecting this soon as a beginning blogger, but nonetheless extremely appreciated. I remember my starting week as a new blogger, searching around wordpress and seeing blogs with different awards. I always wondered what it would feel like to post one of these on my own blog. So, here it is…
It’s the Sunshine Award! 😀

Anger is a great poison that can be extracted by any situation. It clouds the mind and numbs awareness of what you say and do. It’s hard to hold back when you’re angry, but there’s always something that follows actions and words. It’s called regret. Anger is like alcohol and regret is its hangover. Nothing good ever comes out of anger.
A common source of anger? Misunderstanding.
What most people don’t understand is that in an argument, you can never say that only one person is wrong or the one at fault. There are two sides to a fight and there is always something wrong with both parties. What usually happens is that both parties fail to admit their faults because of pride and avoidance of humiliation.
It is a normal emotion and we are always entitled to our emotions. It’s how we act upon the emotions that we must be careful about. We must be able to express our emotions in a way that is socially acceptable. Regret will always follow an action done in anger and it will eat you up inside.
I hate doing things in anger, especially when it involves someone I care about.
Now, I’m feeling the regret to sink in. It’s hard to put my ego and pride aside. It’s something I have to do, but it’s something I’m having a hard time with. Being the one to accept defeat or fault is hard, but it’s the solution to most problems.
I just gotta cool down before I do more things I’ll regret.
I’m going to have my first class session this afternoon (it’s currently 10:15AM as I’m typing this…) and I’ve thought about somethings. I want to be able to juggle this blog, school work, and my writing projects, so I’ll be fixing my blogging schedule. It was something I should have thought about when I was just starting out. I used to think that I had to put something in daily, but whenever I’d miss a day, I’d feel bad about it. After that, I’d go on more days of not posting anything, then the cycle would go on and on.
I’ll just have to get everything straightened out and start doing it.
Be inspired everyone! 🙂
