I wish there is an OFF switch to PMS.



Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances by Neil Gaiman
I haven't finished The Restaurant at the Edge of the Universe yet but I needed a new book to sink myself into. This collection of short stories by one of my favorite storytellers seems to be a great choice. From the introduction:
We build the stories in our heads. We take words, and we give them power, and we look out through other eyes, and we see, and experience, what others see. I wonder, Are fictions safe places? And then I ask myself, Should they be safe places?
For someone who immerses herself in fiction way too much, I daresay no, they are not. This takes me back to what a friend said exactly a day and a year ago when we talked about how Celeste and Jesse Forever destroyed me: "They give us the experience of a thousand lives. The trauma it brings is well worth it."

My contribution for Mina Esguerra's buqo-sponsored online class. I'm so happy because I have finally made progress! I was on my way home from seeing my aunt and cousins yesterday when Tanya and Ethan's story made itself known to me. Now I'm a little bit more confident that I can actually do this. Please cross your fingers for me!

An endless loop of Fun. songs. Seeing a status update from them that they are not breaking the band up although they're all working on separate projects made me so happy. Nate is also working on his solo album so DOUBLE YES!

My heart on my sleeve.


A little bit happy, a little bit sad, and a lot of other emotions in between.

That everything gets better, so no matter how sucky anything feels, I am guaranteed tomorrow [or the day or week or month after that] will be better. Or, I don't know, at least not suck as much.

More time so I can finish all the movies I want to watch and books I want to read and still manage to squeeze another How I Met Your Mother marathon in between.

To think more before I say or type things because the message might get lost in translation and be misconstrued.

I can take at least a week off work so I can work on my stories. I haven't even picked up a watercolor brush in so long. My soul needs a break, but I don't have the luxury to do that.

And so another week begins. Hang tight!
