We’ve all experienced the very annoying writer’s block. Every time I need to write a paper for school I end up stalling myself in the weirdest ways possible. About a week ago, I woke up to give myself enough time for writing but as usual, I just spent the whole day stalling myself. I know that I always stall myself but I haven’t realize how it has reached another extent. It seems like there isn’t a single ounce of concentration in my system. I will forever be a procrastinator. 

Here are some of the things I did to distract myself from writing: 

  1. Sleep
  2. Eat everything in sight. Constantly munch on something.
  3. Annoy your sister until she reminds you that you have a paper to write.
  4. Learn how to play the guitar
  5. Singing at the top of my lungs
  6. Curling up in a ball in the corner of the room.
  7. De-clutter your room
  8. Act like your bored
  9. Blankly stare at the computer screen
  10. Realize how much time I’ve wasted stalling and start panicking.

My Manila International Book Fair Haul :)))

Hey Guys! The past week has been really stressful which resulted into me not being able to update this blog. Anyway, if you’ve been reading my previous posts, I know they sound so depressing so sorry for that. I was just feeling really down in the dumps last week. Probably because of all the stress and anxiety I’ve been feeling. But I’m happy to say that I do feel relatively better now. Life is now less depressing.

One of the reasons why I suffered from anxiety last week was because I was freaking nervous about my radio internship (which I will talk about in a separate post). Well, I finally started with it and I don’t even know why I was so nervous in the first place. It is so AWESOME! I am having such a great time. The only problem I had was the schedule but nevertheless, I’m still happy.

I would like to talk to you guys more about my recent adventures but I’m kinda in a rush because I’m heading to the Manila International Book Fair in a few. Hope to see some of you guys there! Have a great day ahead :)

Cath :)

Thank you so much for nominating me Miel of Whims and Ramblings of an arbitrary lad. :)
Facts about me:
I am an introvert. I enjoy being quiet in a corner while reading a book. Social interaction can sometimes give me anxiety.
My favorite ice cream flavor is pistachio.
I enjoy using flowery language, which makes it even more difficult for me to write in my writing classes where we are trained to write in a straight and concise manner.
I love eating potatoes. They’re just so good, from french fries to mashed potato to potato chips to baked potato. What’s not to love about them? haha
I am a dreamer. I sometimes think that I have too many dreams in life. I just really like believing in the possibility of everything.
Questions from Miel:
1. What is the best cake you’ve ever had?

The Strawberry Shortcake from Mary Grace. Pastries from that shop are quite expensive so I was only able to try that cake once and I can’t even explain how amazing it tastes! It’s like three or four layers of cake filled with real strawberries and cream in between. And the strawberries were like in gigantic sizes man it tastes so good! I seriously still dream about eating this cake sometimes. It’s really the best cake I’ve ever eaten in the entire world!!!

2. Rom-com or thriller?

I’m more of a Rom-Com kinda person. I like watching films that make me laugh and I am sort of a hopeless romantic so, it’s a perfect match for me.

3. If you were to choose a name for yourself (excluding what you’re called now), what will it be?

I really don’t know. Maybe Tiffany or Ashley? I really suck at names. I really don’t know haha. I just really feel like a ‘Cath’. I think that’s really the perfect name for me for some reason.

4. What is your view on To Kill a Mockingbird?

I haven’t read it yet but I am dying to!! I am really gonna get my hands on a copy of it this week, when I head to the Manila International Book Fair!! :D

5. Do you think John Green is terribly awesome?

Yes! He’s such an amazing writer! He’s a GENIUS! but after reading his books, it seemed like my standards for books reached another extent that I rarely find a good enough book to read. He has definitely changed the whole writing game.I think he’s one of the best contemporary authors today.

Under: tagged,

There are times when I fall into deep sadness for no apparent reason. It feels like my heart is about to explode. I want to cry so bad but somehow my tears falter. I feel like this bottled-up entity being forced to keep everything inside.

I honestly don’t know what’s wrong with me. I just want to shut off the entire and be alone. I feel like a lost wanderer. I have no idea with what I’m doing with my life. Everything’s been happening so fast lately I feel like I can’t keep up with life anymore. I know that there are good things happening in my life but I just can help but feel overwhelmed by the negative things that had happened. It’s just too much.

I don’t understand this feeling.All I want to do is sleep and escape reality. I just feel so soulless, like everything I do has no significance anymore, that I am doomed to be mediocre. I’ve lost perspective on what I want to do in life.

My life has been literally a rollercoaster. For a minute am up, ambitious and actually exerting effort to make things happen but then everything turns down hill and I become lazy, with no motivation and end up just depressing myself for what a failure I am.

I just feel so down now. I know this is just a phase because it always is. I just hope it ends sooner because I hate this feeling. I feel like a worthless insignificant being.

Under: my current life, what I feel right now, confused,

I feel so nervous. I can’t sleep at all. I think I’m having an anxiety attack.

It’s been raining non-stop the entire evening and classes for tomorrow have already been suspended. While every other student in the region is rejoicing and relaxing now, here I am just a bundle of nerves and stressing myself out. My first day of my new internship starts tomorrow morning and I’m not sure I can make it at all because of this crazy weather. What’s stressing me out is that I’m afraid it might look bad on my record to miss out on the first day. My mother told I’m not required to go anymore since classes have been suspended and that I’m still considered as a student but I just can’t help thinking of how bad this may look on my evaluation. I don’t even know what to do any more. I just feel so nervous now that I can’t even think straight. I’ve been laying in bed for hours now and yet I can’t sleep. My mind is racing, I’m thinking of every possible outcome the situation may yield to. I don’t even know if any of my thoughts are actually making sense now, I don’t know what to do. I’m just gonna listen to some sad music and sleep this off and wake up in a few hours then I’ll decide. I just need to take a chill pill and calm myself down.

P.S.

Thank you to everyone who answered my previous post. It’s just for an assignment in school. Thanks again. Appreciate it!
