RRW #3: Choices

I’m stuck in inaction. Again. My whole life has been a series of choices. Now here’s another one to make. I know what I have to do and yet… I reach for alternative paths, trying to wriggle out of the obviously most rational choice. Why is this feeling like a root I can never get…… Continue reading RRW #3: Choices

Belief in Oneself

I am going through a bit of a dry spell this winter in terms of motivation. Or rather, my motivation is very selective as I’ve made the choice to do some things while slacking with others. The decision alone to do or not to do is sometimes one I don’t want to make. I can’t…… Continue reading Belief in Oneself

A Broken Promise

A promise I made but never kept was one from my childhood. In all the years afterward where I think of it from time to time, I always feel guilty for breaking the promise because I was too weak.

Least Favorite Form of Transportation

My least favorite form of transportation is riding a car. Supposedly, the first car I’ve ever been in is my dad’s old car. He used to have one when I was very little and there’s even a photo of us in the car. As the story goes, he later sold the car since money was…… Continue reading Least Favorite Form of Transportation

A Chaotic Situation

Chaos, to me, can be defined as something incredibly noisy or distracting in my environment that causes me to feel panic or unsettled. It’s common to hear a child wailing at the top of his or her lungs in public. On the subway, in a store, at the park, in a library, etc. Usually the…… Continue reading A Chaotic Situation
