Webtoons

1 year ago, for day 119 by Asia

Last night I could not sleep. I might have slept in a little too long into Sunday morning. Perhaps I was still hype after watching Game of Thrones. Whatever the case may be, I found myself reading a webtoon until around 2AM. I know I really shouldn't be reading anything...


Monday is Coming

1 year ago, for day 118 by Asia

Sundays are for Game of Thrones. It always brings a welcome distraction to the inevitability that is Monday. This is further proof in the importance of routine. Tonight's episode was the most riveting television I have watched in a long time. Even now, I feel my heartbeat will not slow...


Little Victories

1 year ago, for day 117 by Asia

Sometimes I'm afraid to admit that things are going well because I didn't go quite as far as I wanted to, or I'm worried I will backslide into a negative mindset, not realizing that worry means I'm still there. So today, I decided to try something different. Instead of worrying,...


Spring Cleaning

1 year ago, for day 116 by Asia

I said I would tidy up for the holidays. I didn't. Not exactly, anyway. I suppose I did tidy up my love life a little. All these months later, there are still remnants of it lying around, both metaphorically and literally, but I've done about all I can to deal...


Take Your Child to Work Day

1 year ago, for day 115 by Asia

Despite countless posts about being burnt out because I had said yes too much to too many things, a few weeks back, I decided to take my niece to Take Your Children to Work Day. As soon as I heard about it, I asked my sister, and she said that...


After Burnout

1 year ago, for day 112 by Asia

It's amazing to look over the writing I've done since the beginning of this year, and to witness the patterns that unfold from within. In observing the writing, I recognize that it is the one new routine that I've been able to maintain this year. I'd like to take this...


The Myth of Laziness

1 year ago, for day 111 by Asia

In today's world, it seems simple to rationalize virtually anything, even the worst part of ourselves. When everything happens for a reason, what are we to make of the negative aspects of ourselves and our lives? Given a choice between arrogance and self-deprecation, it's seen as more acceptable to be...


Solace

1 year ago, for day 110 by Asia

I've always presumed that solace was a solitary thing, perhaps in part due to their similar word structures. But I think it has more to do with the fact that I've always enjoyed being alone. At least, up until recently. It's not that I dislike being alone. It's that I'm...


Tailored

1 year ago, for day 109 by Asia

I arrived at the tailor's around 6:55 PM, just a few minutes before closing. The owner's son was sound asleep on a bench by the door, while the men were working behind the counter. In the background, a staticky radio played music in Spanish. I realized I never did learn...


All the Lonely People

1 year ago, for day 108 by Asia

Where do they all come from. All the lonely people, where do they all belong? I always thought it was a weird song. What was it even about? Was it about pitying other people? What good can come of that? When you choose to distance yourself from empathy, what can...
