That's the saying, isn't it? Basically, take the risk or don't try. It's always stressful when you deal with extremes and this phrase is an extreme at its finest. It's one of many varieties of phrases that tell a person that you need to go for it. Risk failure. Win it all. Or die trying. … Continue reading 28: Go Big or Go Home
It's interesting to me how we rationalize our affinities towards characters in any story. Take characters in movies or TV for example, women will gush over men on the big screen and fawn over their character regardless of flaws or lack of depth. On the other hand, a woman could fawn over a character based … Continue reading 27: Character Development
There come times in which you feel so helpless. You feel victim to your own circumstance. You feel yourself succumbing to it. To be fair, it's hard. You're not in control of your destiny, of what happens in your future, not totally...although we try every day to maintain some semblance of control. Sometimes it's just … Continue reading 26: Taking Control
We're officially a quarter of the way through! Wow, time certainly flies. I can't even really remember what day it was when I decided to start this thing. My hands have been in some serious pain lately, making the motivation for me to write even less. Although recently I did fall asleep forgetting to post. … Continue reading Day 25
And I don't mean in the "kids do weird things" way. I mean, obviously kids do weird things. Adults do weird things too....but I'm talking about how kids are weird in the way that they eventually become non-kids....which is a roundabout way of saying that it's weird watching kids grow up. Take my mini, for … Continue reading Day 24: Kids are weird
So I didn't know it was cookie day when I made the cookies but lately I've been obsessed with perfecting my own chocolate chip cookie recipe. So I've been doing a lot of research and watching a lot of videos on chocolate chip cookies. Last night I finally put it into practice, not totally perfect … Continue reading Day 23: National Cookie Day
I wrote for myself, today. Finally. It's bittersweet, however. It was out of frustration but it's certainly a start. I started writing out of frustration so I suppose it makes sense to pick it up out of frustration. I'm sure I've mentioned it somewhere on this blog already but most people don't quite believe it … Continue reading Day 22: I did it.
Perhaps. Not quite? I know this for sure: I don't find myself needing to be reminded to write. My alarm to write is actually around lunch time but I always end up writing these posts at bed. I do wonder if changing or removing the alarm will erase the routine or somehow make my memory … Continue reading Day 21: Is this a habit yet?
And for reasons I won't discuss, have not posted in a few days. I have some reasons - mostly exhaustion. But the main thing is that certain events got in the way of my writing and by the time I had a moment, I fell asleep. That being said, I'm typing away while I'm waiting … Continue reading Day 20: I’m Up Late
I've been sleeping quite late recently. Past midnight which is out of character for me. This doesn't make me wake up later, however. In fact, it doesn't always make me more tired either. It's just what it is. I feel like if I sleep when I intend to, I'll still sleep until the same time. … Continue reading Day 19: Another One of Those Days
