Writing Not Writing

What is the worse thing about writing nonsense? It is having nothing to write at all. So I stare on a white sheet of virtual paper and all looking at the blinking cursor not figuring what else is there to write....

Writing about not writing
From my plot of time... there were two food trips (or maybe more), an aquarium trip (which was so awesome, I can still remember the names of the sea lions), and ugh... two (supposedly three) movies in between. 

But what has become of those? Memories waiting to be put into words...

Writing should be like inspiration... ideas should flow nonstop that not even the writer knows when or where it would stop. But what is happening to me is quite the opposite. It is kinda like I force the words out instead of them freely flowing out.

Alas! I'm writing nonsense again. It's one of those days that I have a thing or two about Philosophy. Though what I'm writing is not philosophical. It's a portion of the writer's brain, more frankly the bad sector of an SD card. 

I guess I'm at the center of what they call as ‘writer's block. It's not that I don't have ideas... they're just not forming into coherent words and sentences like they used to. And it is precisely why my soul doesn't feel free. All of my emotions are trapped in a prison of quantum plasma or what-not. Not even me can open it.

But voila! I just had this thought from somewhere... or maybe I dreamed about it... or maybe it's because The Fault in Our Stars was showing in the theaters that got me the whole idea of going back into reading books. 

I stopped reading books when I started on with the 50-year grind. Well, not literally stopped per se, just went into hiatus mode. Then suddenly time became a luxury. I became a slave to labor. All the sweet little freedoms of staring blankly vanished into thin air. And along with it, the pulpy smell of acid-free paper and newsprints. 

But there is an urgent need deep in my heart to write again. And the only solution I can think of is to read and fill my brain with a gush of words so strong that it must go out into a stream of sentences and paragraphs. 

And with all conscious effort involving time and space, I just finished reading The Fault in Our Stars. It is a good book written by an excellent writer, John Green. I found the quote that best describes what I feel in this moment...

Perfect! Photo source
Hmmm... more like feeling this way every time! Haha... 

So what to do to feel less dead? Okay then. Challenge accepted. Life is like The Sims 3, after all. It is like a game with all the unexpected craps. But still, it is a good game. So yeah... I'm back into bookworm mode. Maybe a chapter every night before going to bed will do, eh? If our brain can still withstand the avalanche of metaphors and speeches after a long day, then we move on to chapter two. Oh well... I will now get back to the daily grind, but with an hour of lingering in the smell of acid-free paper and newsprints.

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

Presenting The Starbucks 2014 Planner

There are a lot of 2014 planners available out there. For this post, let me share with you the 2014 Starbucks Planner. Every December, people are talking about it! The cover and the layouts are something to look forward to, as well. For this year, it came in four colors: yellow, magenta, brown, and black. The black one is the Philippine edition ( hmmm, tempting! ). I'm very much impressed because the cover feels like leather.  I will feature the magenta one. My friend owns this. I already have a planner for 2014, owning another doesn't make sense at all. Hehehe ~ So, I decided to take some photos of it and share what's inside. (^_^) Left: the box, Right: the planner.  The cover is embossed with coffee icons and Starbucks coffee blend logos. I noticed the symbol for their coffee Sumatra and the elephant icon for Kenya. The 2014 Starbucks Planner in magenta I saw the symbol of the Starbucks coffee blend Sumatra embossed on it. Here is a really cute featur
