Time check: it’s 12:48 AM and I am not sleepy yet. My surrounding is so quiet, lights are off, and everyone is asleep.
At this hour, I am thinking about the way I lived my life before this health crisis entered the scene. I wonder if I have lived it worthwhile or did I neglect the things I needed to be grateful for.
I realized that no matter how I thought I was doing good with my life, I fall short of too many things. I have not been productive enough, I was not the person I envisioned myself to be five years ago, I have not been very appreciative and thankful for the things that come my way, and I am not contributing enough to the society.
And I need to change it NOW.

I started blogging circa 2007 (Tumblr days) and I have considered it as a place for me to let my feelings out – an online diary. I have tried several platforms – WordPress, Blogger (Blogspot), Tumblr, among others. I find it difficult to maintain a blog especially when I have too much going on at school and work. However, one of the silver lining of the current crisis for me is that I have realized that this is something I have always loved and that I made so much excuses of not pursuing this passion. I knew I have so much time to do this if I just didn’t let my laziness and procrastination get in the way.
So, I thank my friend, Little Misadvencha, for inspiring me to be back at it again.
For Day 01 of Little Misadvencha’s 30-day blog challenge, let’s get into the bits of this blog and why is it named the way it is named.
