Life

All “Life” blog posts. This category is already self-explanatory but since I need to fulfill the SEO requirements (the red icon really bothers me) I have to explain that these posts are about my personal life and whatever happens outside of my usual topics. I might posts some sensitive topics here and might use some triggering words but please understand that is what I strongly feel at that time.

↝ I might regret posting these topics in the future but I am sure that it can blow off some steam out of me. I don’t need something to bother me for days, I need an outlet.

Mental exhaustion, a very slow recovery

It’s been a year and a month since this lockdown started and been living alone for a very long time in this small space of mine called ‘home’. Usually, when I get tired from work or just being outside, taking a rest is the best thing to do so I can do whatever stuff, tasks, or anything that I have to do on the next day. But there are times that everything seems to be harder.

Mental exhaustion, it is a very common thing to feel that especially nowadays. At first, I thought that it’s similar to being tired but it took me more than (3) three months to fully realized that I can’t focus on my work or whatever I was doing, my love for playing games completely disappeared, always frustrated and angry with the people I talked to daily and my on-and-off disorder, Trichotillomania comes back at random times.

Cleaning — I can’t believe it’s been a year

As I sit here, watching some news (lockdown will happen tomorrow) wasting my Sunday night, I can’t believe it’s been a year I’m living in this place. This time last year, I was working on cleaning this flat to remove all cobwebs and molds and of course, the bathroom made me cringe since it’s the most disgusting portion in a condominium. This is the third time I move out and it makes me wonder how people can be really messy.

Honestly, I can’t complain since my brother and sister-in-law are the previous tenants here and this is an old unit but even if it is quite old, with a little bit for furniture and deep deep cleaning, things can make surprisingly decent — well except for the sinks, I can’t understand why those things clog up so fast even after using hydrochloric acid and I’m guessing it’s due to how the pipes are aligned.

And Life Suddenly Hits — Chapter 2

Oh wow, it’s been months now since I posted something here; to be honest, life hits again and got busy right after 2019 ends. A lot of things happened but first things first, I’ve changed my layout again to a much simpler one and I hope I could stick to it until the end of 2020.

So back to the topic; around January my brother gave me his keys to his old apartment, luckily my parents help me to do general cleaning so I can move in and start living by myself again and so far, feels like the same while when I was in Makati and no more annoying train horns too!

Finally moving out this November

In a couple of weeks, we’ll be moving out to our bustling yet lively environment of Makati and transferring to… well to another area in Ortigas, which shares the same setting as Makati.

Last weekend, I pullout 4 boxes with all of our things, with more than 300 video game cartridges which the majority of these carts are Famicom games. Moving these boxes is a challenge and I kinda wish that my husband is here to help me but he has to accomplish getting his license in the US before returning here.
