A Sign of Better Things to Come

It’s never too late to start over. If you weren’t happy with yesterday, try something different today. Don’t stay stuck. Do better.

Posted in And there was light..


Let me just count down the list as to why I hate my life right now..

Everything sucks, nothing is working in my life right now..

Job is pathetic and really I am just tired of it..

Everyone around me sucks.. hate everyone.. hate everyone period

My life is just one big spiral of disappointments

Nothing good is happening

I feel like everything is just topsy turvy no direction no meaning

I mean come on!!! cut me some slack here God!

Like really?!!? why?! why does it go the way it does..


I am ranting out like a drunk bitch..

really I had to complain.. i just had to..


I had to let it out.. i really have to..

coz nothing makes sense.. at all! Nothing!

I keep hoping for something good to happen at every turn

But it always ends up as disappointment..


It’s very frustrating and disheartening..

I am losing my patience.. I am losing my will to live..

I don’t know what to do..


I am so full of hate.. full of anger..

I hate the way my life is going.. and I’m pretty sure I’m the only one to blame.. if not solely.. but really can’t pinpoint anyone at the moment.

it’s really pathetic.. I am pathetic..


I hate my life..

and I could go on and on..

I just do.. I feel like punching, shouting, kicking.. just really making a fit..


I am a sad piece of shit.. doesn’t deserve to live..

doesn’t deserve to live at all..

Art in Matchboxes

I just saw a very nice website that showed creativity and resourcefulness out of old matchboxes. The results were awesome and so cute, I decided to share it here. Who knows, it might spark up some inspiration in doing one yourself, I know I will especially since Valentines is close. I wanted to give my partner a one of a kind special DIY gift which is why in the past articles I have been featuring different kinds of arts and craft projects. It’s amazing what other people could come up with out of the simplest things.

Nowadays, it’s but practical (and meaningful!) to give the one you love something that you made yourself and placed so much effort in doing.

Just additional tips I picked up along the way, could be useful someday..



Posted in Just messing with my mind

A topic to discuss

You know when sometimes you run out of words to say?

Like your mind goes into a complete and utter shutdown.. Like a light bulb that goes off all of a sudden..

I get this sometimes.. especially in situations that are far more overwhelming to comprehend like someone saying nasty things to you.. or it could be your mind goes on auto shut off when the person talking infront of you is boring as hell.. or when someone is trying to discuss something completely out of your brain’s league something out of this world and incomprehensible.. or someone you wish never to talk to you starts talking to you again..

How do you normally react to these kinds of situation? When you’re at a loss for words.. When your tongue rolls up inside your mouth.. When all the words even the alphabets lose their meaning in your brain.. How do  you deal exactly??

I guess if you’re someone as transparent as me, it would be so easy to detect but I’m amazed at people who don’t seem to have a single blind spot in their brains.. they just keep going and going and going.. as if their brains work on machines and on hyper drive every single time.. But I have yet to find an actual person who does that.. really..

This could also apply in times when I am looking for a topic to post and write about. I guess a part of the reason also comes from having a lot of topics to choose from, there are so many that you end up not coming up with one.

I guess all in all people have to have some off days sometimes. It allows us to gather more things to think about, and process in our thinking tanks. The way to deal with it at times is just to be subtle.. it’s all about exercising your brain so that even if you shut down you still know how to handle the conversation when necessary or in my case now to wing it in order to put out..


Till my next blot of ink! 🙂
