Everyday NhanSense – Day 34

Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.

Day 34’s Topic: Determination.
Time to get the game face on!

With stability in place of a job to pay the bills and the means of actually taking care of myself like an adult, AKA I don’t have to starve anymore like some grueling nights I had to endure, I can finally start to plan for the immediate future in terms of projects and ambitions.

The past two months tested my limits, forced me to rethink my life from the ground up and above all else made me grow up and fast. Those random things you take for granted like shelter and food don’t seem like much until you’re backed up to a wall with limited options.

Nonetheless, that particular part of the storm has passed. It’s time to move forward with my various plans.

The first order of business is just to establish some sense of consistency throughout the week. A little structure goes a long way, after all. I have made it a habit to do things like write a blog post every evening at a certain time to acclimate myself, mainly so I don’t become lazy as a writer. Hey now, it’s worked so far, right?

On top of that, I now sleep and wake up at roughly the same times, so that stupid insomnia issue is basically taken care of for now. But now, I have to base my life around my work schedule, using my free time to chip away at my projects and planning.

Some writing here. Some research here. A little bit of this. A little bit more of that.

This ensures I can get stuff done to feel accomplished without overwhelming myself. As a reminder, that sense of “willpower” is a finite resource within the human body. You can’t just go autopilot and not expend willpower. It’s always going to be used, but sometimes you can scrape by with stretching it around, otherwise you will burn out.

It’s always a good time to feel determined! Here is some inspirational music to complement that determined attitude!

Daily NhanSense – Day 12

Daily NhanSense: Every day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.

Day 12’s Topic: Music.

I was so afraid of the days long ago
Now I realize that I never did know
Now days have changed; they’re complex and sad
Missing all the days that I once had
I don’t really think that I’d want to return
Today may be hard, but I live and I learn
My heart believes; I don’t think that it’s wrong
Then it shouts that I have been just right all along

Now is the time for our fate to connect
Believing in the same future, we intersect
All of the tears we have cried yesterday
Let’s dry them up and keep smiling on today
We are a team; we share all painfulness
But yet we also share all the same tenderness
As long as you stay right here next to me
I will stay strong for tomorrow; you will see..

This song really resonates with my current outlook on life at the moment. Not to mention, Kill la Kill is a really cool anime.

Cut the cord
And face tomorrow
Smash the door down
Takin’ charge
All the way…

On the edge and goin’ under
While the plastic world around me
Surrounds me
And holds me down

Blasted off into the thunder
Won’t admit that they’d just ground me
If they found me
As I am now

You I couldn’t fool anymore, though
You were born rebel, a fighter like me
You were more than willin’ to break my guard
And set the fire free

My silky love
Oh every single hour of the day
My silky love
I’m always thinking ‘bout the things you say
My silky love
These feelings trapped within this heart of mine
My silky love
Will soon burst out of my chest and fly

If I could bring myself to just say that I love you
All of my worries would soon disappear
But each time I see you I push you for my doubting heart just interferes

Whenever in the past there were things holding me back
I’d go on and live out who I should be
But when it comes to us there’s this great wall that’s separating you and me

There are these feelings inside that I want you to know
They’re on the tip of my tongue, “How I do love you so”
With all the courage I have I will walk up to you
And with my heart I will tell you the truth

From the day that we met I’ve had this pure silky heart
But it’s quite delicate and it may all fall apart
How I’m always clumsy fumbling my words, maybe I’m in love

The heartaches of the past that almost faded away
The pain and hurting should our love go astray
Oh one day I’ll let my guard down and show you myself
And I’ll tell you all the hidden feelings in my heart I’ve felt

Someday in Our Future

By XxAngelOfYouthxXx.

If we combine our spirits together
We can manage it … either one way or another
Our power’s feeble, but our heads are strong
There are certain dreams we want to nurture

There’s still so much that we don’t understand
And we have nothing, only roadmaps in our pockets
Sooner or later we will make it through
We keep our heads up and take a step front!

What are you going to do when you mess up?
Why not put on a smile and just shout … Yay! Yay! Yay!
I want to sing this happy tune, with honest feelings streaming from our hearts!

One, two, three, four
Everyone, let’s go!

Someday, we will all make it. To that place that we’re dreaming of.
Someday, we can all get there. Let’s have some faith in what we all love.
At this time, there really is no point in feeling down because …
The excitement hasn’t even, even, even, even started yet!
