The Ph.D Quest…

| June 10, 2010

… is going to be way harder than I thought. I finished answering the sample GRE for Literature last night and I flunked big time. Which means I will have long intense study sessions ahead of me if I really want  this bad enough. Having written the novel has raised my confidence level so high [...]

(Re)Learning to Live

| September 12, 2009

I know it was just this morning when I blogged, almost unwillingly, about things I am grateful for this week, but I feel the need to do a follow up after meeting up with the lovely Lit people for a long lunch today. It was everything that I needed at this very low point in [...]

The worst might be over.

| July 29, 2009

Yesterday when I read this article and asked myself if I were happy, I realized I could finally say yes. So I think the worst may be over. I have been a bundle of energy the past couple of days leaving me too exhausted to even think about anything else other than labor conditions in [...]

Or perhaps…

| July 27, 2009

…I should start a business. But the bigger question is what? A used bookstore cum ukay-ukay shop sounds like something I would actually want to own. “We sell everything used but still usable.” But I would need a good location. Near a university, perhaps. Or I could start a tutorial service of sorts. Hire fresh [...]

To leave or not to leave…

| July 26, 2009

Today I am actually seriously considering migrating. This is something new. While I would love a year or two of studying or working somewhere else, I had never really thought of being away long-term and possibly being away for good. But I am quite tired. This sudden exhaustion crept up on me. Very quietly. I [...]

Weekly Gratefulness List (July 19-25, 2009)

| July 24, 2009

To be honest, I was tempted not to write a list for this week. It’s difficult to be grateful when you’re hurting so much. But maybe I’d feel better after this. This week, thank you for: – friends who would attempt to comfort and/or distract me. Not always successful but I really appreciate the effort. [...]

Quota Reached. Better Luck Next Lifetime.

| July 23, 2009

Time to accept the fact that there are things I will never be good at, no matter how hard I try. Time to quit. Besides, I have reached my quota of heartbreaks in this lifetime. So that’s it. I am never falling in love again. *accepts defeat *throws towel in There will always be things [...]

Weekly Gratefulness List (July 12-18, 2009)

| July 17, 2009

As can be gleaned from my previous post, I am a confused little girl right now. So I slept on it. And as soon as I woke up I scheduled more sleeping sessions ahead. But it is in times like this one that my weekly gratefulness list makes the most sense because it makes me [...]

Major Life Decisions

| July 17, 2009

Lately I have been thinking of major life decisions. From buying a house to migrating to quitting my job and going back to school full-time. Maybe I have reached that age of finally wanting to know exactly where I’m headed, if I were in fact headed anywhere. Maybe I had too much free time while [...]
