{2016} Currently Vol. 1

04 January 2016

Ever since I read it in Christian Living class when I was still in sixth grade, Invictus by William Ernest Henley has become my favorite poem of all time. I have committed it to memory and can recite it word for word, but I still make it a point to write it down on whatever planner I'm using for the year. (See it on my 2012 planner here.) "I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul" became my mantra and battle-cry whenever I face challenges that seem like they're too big for me to handle.

For this year, it's one of the first things I wrote in my planner. Are there any poems/ fictional works that hold the same significance to you, too? Care to share?

As for me, I have more to share because I decided to continue my weekly Currently posts. Here's the first one for 2016!


News Hardcore! Hukbong Sandatahan ng Kahaggardan by Manix Abrera. This was an instant buy for me not only because I'm a solid Manix Abrera fan but also because of what the book is about. These comic strips poke fun at two of the most stressful professions of all: journalism and broadcasting. Although I'm not a press person, I graduated with a Mass Communication degree and regularly interact with the press so I recognize the jokes all too well.

Today's entry to my Happiness Jar: being able to end the first day of the work-week/ month/ year without hitches plus a pasta and tea date with Miah after work.

The sound in the house when everyone else in the family's already sleeping: a whole lot of quiet.

My comfy pajamas. Sleeping shortly after publishing this!

Of where to go this year. I would love to go to a place I've never been to, but where? The choices are infinite!

Unwell. I have the sniffles and they just won't go away! :(

That today is January 4, therefore there are only 15 days left before I see Nate Ruess in concert! 15 days! NATE RUESS!!

So there's my first Currently. That's it for now, I guess? I really hope I can sustain this again until the end of the year just because it's always nice to see documented memories. ♥
