The nerd is back


Medyo matagal-tagal na din nung huli akong nakabasa ng code. Tas ngayon, nagawa ko ung task. Nakapagprogram ulit! Sobrang saya ko lang! Hay. šŸ¤“

Soundtrip

Natuwa ako na may Pinoy playlists ang Spotify Philippines dahil medyo namiss ko din makinig ng OPM. Sa trabaho ko kasi ngayon, hindi na ako masyadong nakakapagsoundtrip habang nasa desk ko. Madalas kasi na may buong araw ay meetings, buong araw may kausap. Bibihira ung matitigil ako sa office ko, madalas e nasa conference room ako. Pero iba ngayong araw. Wala akong meeting. Walang istorbo, pwedeng pwede na magsoundtrip.

Sa dami ng playlists na available, ang napili ko e ung OPM Favorites. Naisip ko, malamang medyo alam ko pa ung mga kanta sa playlist na ito, pwedeng maki-sing along.

After 2 hours, tumigil ako sa pakikinig. Nagiba ang mood ko. Bigla akong nalungkot. Ang bigat sa pakiramdam matapos kong pakinggan sina Nina, Jericho Rosales, Moonstar88 at Sarah Geronimo, to name a few.

Iba talaga ang epekto ng kanta. Ung tatlong minuto, dadalhin ka kung saan-saan. Kahit na dun sa lugar na pilit mong ibinaon sa limot. Your Love, may nagrevive na pala nyan. Kahit revival na, kahit babae na ang boses, ganun pa din ung epekto sa akin. Nakakainis. Nakakalungkot. Ngayon ko lang narealize, napakalungkot ng OPM. May masasaya naman pero ung mga super sikat, pare-pareho lang ng tema. Pusong umasa at nasaktan. Pusong nagbigay ng 2nd chance. Pusong nakalimot pero hindi tuluyan. Pusong patuloy na nagmamahal.

Pwede dingĀ ako lang ang nagpapalungkot sa sarili ko na hindi naman na dapat apektado. Hay. Ang hirap sa pakiramdam. Parang ayoko na tuloy makinig ng OPM. Mga next time na lang siguro.

Day One

A month ago, I wrote about how I switched from my Erin Condren planner to a MidoriĀ Traveler’s Notebook. I got so excited to use my traveler’s notebook and try Bullet Journaling. I wrote on my journal everyday — I would use legends/symbols on my daily entries and it even came to a point that I enjoyed writing again. I also liked the fact that my journal is smaller than my old planner, so I can take it wherever I go. I thought I was doing good. I thought that having free reign and not having a structured template will be effective for me but I was wrong. A week has past and I completely forgot to write on my journal. Forget is not what happened really. I was just too tired and lazy. There I said it. I am to busy participating in real life that I don’t bother writing about my day anymore.

So yeah, I have a month old notebook that I haven’t touched since last week. I was so disappointed with myself. From 2000-early 2016, I have been good with keeping up with my journal. I had the gusto of writing down my feelings on a piece of paper. But now, meh. I don’t feel like it. I didn’t care about writing down how my day went. It felt like a chore for me which is not good. When was writing ever a chore for me? Uhh, never.

So I had to do something about it. If I can’t write on my journal, there has to be an alternative right? Since phones nowadays can do everything, even catch Pokemon, I searched for an app that I could use. Journal apps are prolly a thing right? Yep. There’s a bunch of free ones but if I really want something that would work, I have to pay for it — $5 to be exact. I decided to getĀ Day One JournalĀ a try. After reading about it, I figured paying is worth it. Since I have my phone at all times, I can write whenever. I can take pictures and save links. It is very convenient. I don’t have any excuse of not writing because I have my phone AT ALL TIMES.

It has been a week since I downloaded the app and I give it 5 stars. The app keeps me organized and I am slowly going back to my writing groove. I also found out that there is aĀ Mac version, so I downloaded that as well. I can sync my entries between my iPhone and Macbook. Pretty awesome if you ask me. I think I found something that works. I just hope this one sticks and I won’t get tired of it. We’ll see.
