Strolling by the Sea

Yesterday was a fantastic humid day for walking along the seaside. Good thing I didn’t wear flip-flops as I am prone to do during summer-ish weather. I needed my sneakers for how far I went (I walked for two hours with small breaks in-between), and flip-flops would’ve definitely put a serious strain on my feet…… Continue reading Strolling by the Sea

RIP to Mobile Games

It seemed unimaginable that there might be a day when I would decide to say goodbye to mobile games forever. Some days ago, I did just that. No more Candy Crush, Farm Heroes Super Saga, or Cookie Jam on my phone. The trinity of 3-match games I have played on and off for these past…… Continue reading RIP to Mobile Games

Wake-Up Call

Today, the second night into a vacation trip I took with my family to the Pocono Mountains, I had been slowly but surely putting together a blog draft of all the cool things I have experienced thus far. Now in light of something that happened this evening, I feel too somber to publish it. Maybe…… Continue reading Wake-Up Call

Scared by an Icebreaker Question

I have never liked icebreaker questions. My fear of them stems from my school years where the activity always came up as the teacher’s method of making everyone “get to know each other”. Icebreaker questions are meant to be non-threatening and a casual, fun way for people to interact with one another, but being that…… Continue reading Scared by an Icebreaker Question

May Showers

I’m caught in the cycle of May showers this week. Rain day in and day out. This brings to mind the “April showers bring May flowers” I was familiar with and liked the saying because it rhymed well. At least the plants and flowers outside will enjoy all this extra nourishment. I enjoy hearing the…… Continue reading May Showers

My joints are a bit tighter and there’s a slight tension in my muscles because yesterday I was working…… Continue reading “Me” Problems
