Currently Vol. 20

18 May 2015

I'm on leave from work today because I figured I needed a day to rest after our Pahiyas weekend. Aside from finishing the last two episodes of Will & Grace Season 3, I was fairly productive: I managed to get some work that needed urgent attention done, I managed to tick off some items in my to-do list, and I completely scrapped the first few pages of my Spark NA novella so I could begin from the top. 

Yes, my friends, I am beginning again.

Unlike my Buqo YA experience where everything started to flow the moment I decided, "This is it. I am going to write now." and fingers hit the keyboard, the magic just isn't happening for me this time. I couldn't embody Tanya's voice. I couldn't hit my stride. I couldn't make it happen. So, yes, begin again it is.

At this rate I don't even know if I'm going to reach the deadline. Please cross your fingers for me.

On to this week's Currently.

CURRENTLY VOL. 20

READING
Still the same book I've been reading for the last three weeks. What happened to me?

WRITING
See above.

LISTENING TO
My everyday playlist that contains songs from The Neighbourhood, Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, Yellowcard, Dido, Owl City, Nate Ruess, and songs from The Voice Season 7.

SMELLING
Like clean soap. I just took a shower.

WEARING
A casual shirt and shorts. I'm just waiting for my friends and then we'll go to our carpool-mate's house for a birthday surprise. Yep, I have all these deadlines but I still couldn't miss this.

THINKING
Of all my deadlines.

FEELING
Anxious. I really want to finish my novella but self-doubt has crept in and at this point I don't know if I could still fight it.

LOVING
New possibilities.

WANTING
More free time to work on everything I need to finish.

NEEDING
More free time to work on everything I need to finish.

WISHING


For the chance to just pause and watch the sun set and give way to the night. It's always my favorite time of the day not just because of the gorgeous colors that line the sky, but because it reminds us of the possibility that dark and light can coexist at the same time.

Also, Before Sunset is one of my favorite movies.

I wish I can go star-gazing.
