Currently Vol. 32

The human body is a great miracle. Just imagine that network of veins, organs, blood, bones, and cells all working together so we can perform our day-to-day tasks effectively, even healing and repairing itself when something goes wrong. Amazing, right?

I really need my father's human body to speed up its repair and recovery right now.

He's been in the hospital since Thursday. He has been dealing with stomach pains for at least a week before he decided to go to the doctor, and after a few tests they were not allowed to come home anymore. Appendectomy had to be done stat, but unfortunately his appendix has burst already. Because of this, toxins have already entered the bloodstream. His condition is still being monitored but in the meantime he had to have blood transfusion and would probably go through endoscopy or colonoscopy.

Hospital visits give me excellent fodder for my #StrangeLit story but I am sick with worry. I hope and pray he recovers soon. Your prayers are very much appreciated.

CURRENTLY VOL. 32

READING



The Philippine Graphic/ Fiction Awards Prose Anthology. For #StrangeLit purposes, you see. *whispers to self as I justify further acquisition of more books than I can hope to finish reading in this lifetime* (⌒_⌒;)

WRITING
My still-untitled #StrangeLit piece. This watercolor painting I did yesterday was inspired by the story I'm writing. I hope I can finish it before the deadline.

A captured wish
HEARING BUT TRYING HARD NOT TO LISTEN TO
The things that induce my panic attacks. Timehop tells me that I began getting panic attacks around this time last year also. What's with August? I've started meditating again through the Lucent app, and my newly discovered Breathe app. Both are extremely helpful and much recommended.

THINKING
Of how life is so fragile, and that there's really no way of knowing what lies ahead. What's important is to just make the most out of everything.

FEELING
Worried because of my Dad, but also nostalgic.


I left HSBC three years ago - still one of the toughest yet best decisions I've ever made.

LOVING
My current connection with my stream of consciousness. Hope I don't lose it anytime soon, or at least until I finish my #StrangeLit story.

WANTING
My Dad to recover quickly and come home soon.

NEEDING
My Dad to recover quickly and come home soon.

WISHING
For my Dad to recover quickly and come home soon. I hope you can pray and wish with me.
