    Any resolutions or goals?

    2020 was a definite bust, a drag for sure. Here's to 2021! Have you made any resolutions or set any goals? Be honest, did you make some and already break them? I've got a few this year. First one is to be more active, I figure it will help me mentally, socially and physically. Second one is to cook more at home! We eat out way too often and this is bad for the wallet and the waistline. My last goal is to stress less. I plan on traveling more which should help me free my mind and keep my stress levels in check. How about you? Share your goals and we'll help each other stay on track.

    Staying Active During the Pandemic

    I have been trying to stay active, but my job makes it a little difficult to be active. I need to start getting back into the physical shape I used to be in. Even though I don't tend to gain much weight, I still lose definition in my body tone. By next month, I hope to stick to a regular exercise routine.

    Shallow Waters

    Some of us crave deep conversations and seek it expectantly almost making it a standard for an ideal partner. But remember that shells are found on the shore and small talks like shells have their own appeal. There’s character in every interaction because there you’ll see how someone appreciates something.

    Twisted Jokes

    People would sometimes joke around to lessen the tension in certain situations. In some cases though humor would involve making fun of another person. If the person who was made fun of speak for him or herself, that person would be perceived as the bad person for being sensitive.

    Scrolling Loop

    Scrolling through social media applications is one of the things that many people do every single day. There’s the fun in it but how much pleasure does it really give in comparison to the stress experienced using it. I think that it only ends up confusing our thoughts and emotions.

    The Ceiling is an Art

    The ceiling is such a space where we can look comfortably when the world has exhausted us again. It is empty and there's really nowhere to look. But it helps generate the thoughts and doesn't hinders the peace of mind that we badly need which our phones can't really offer. There's nothing there in the ceiling, not even words, yet it helps the mind wander around. It's a safe space to look at regardless of what you're feeling and it somehow helps you reflect too. Without the ceiling, you would see the chaotic structure of the house and your mind might be wandering when something might fall instead of having peace. The ceiling is a safe space and yet tension can still arise when sounds are heard from it. It can also offer images during moments of imaginings almost acting like a projector. A blank may not be nothing then but is just a way of its own.
  11. What makes a person great? Having graduated from a prestigious school or university? Having a progressive career? Being rich and famous? Having a great personality? Being a people-oriented person? Listening to your parents? Being a good friend? These questions are all focused externally and has an audience, which means surroundings have an influence on what would be considered as great by others. How would you consider yourself as great? Association with the external world may be vital in seeing our potential but only the person can determine when he or she is at the greatest or not. And that's why some people have regrets regardless of what they've achieved wherein others who've lived simply as perceived by others have led a full life. Only the individual can create the meaning of what's great for oneself. So aim to be at your greatest at the time of your death, which is somehow still unpredictable. In that sense, live well everyday. As much as you can, act without being affected by external influences that will only leave a negative impact.
  12. When is the moment you are waiting for when the present is now. Focusing too much on the goal makes people overlook the process they're going through and so under appreciate themselves. There are instances of longing to have a job and moving on with life when one is still a student. Graduation would come along and finally the person obtains the job. He or she is happy with the changes, at least momentarily. There will always be the next good or bad thing while you're alive. Even without obtaining the goal that you have in mind yet, things are happening at the moment so notice it. A goal is necessary but is not the only thing necessary. Every interaction counts because when you reach a goal, what comes after is still life. Living for the sake of an objective may end up suffocating. Work hard and let the goal be a result of how well you've been living. Continue to look forward to things you want to do while setting objectives but don't forget to pay attention to the present moment and the efforts you're exerting. Whatever you do, you'll still be here. Do notice your existence.
  13. Before the pandemic started, I would barely use my phone and be on social applications. But then it eventually became lonely so I found myself interacting with random people over the internet. There would be chats here and there, appearing and disappearing, similar to passersby who you'll usually see on the streets. Substantial conversations were hard to find since more people were into sexual topics, which at the time I wasn't as comfortable talking about. Besides, because of anonymity, lots were just sending body parts, so what do I say to that? Luckily, I've managed to encounter people that I can relate to and talk about stuff. With people, I've come to expect that they will eventually leave and this applies especially within the context of the Internet. Although whatever my initial thoughts were, when I stopped interacting with someone I've been talking to for a month I still ended up sad. But I think to myself, "How am I sad when it was mere conversations that didn't even happen in person?" Regardless though, it still happened and emotions were felt. Virtual connections have become a huge part of us during this pandemic. Reality won't just be in person anymore, and whatever is now is real-life. What you'll feel is valid, but the cause of it is very fragile. A delete, a block, then poof as if nothing ever happened. By then, what can one feel about? It would appear as if you were feeling over nothing.

    Staying Active During the Pandemic

    For me, staying active is pretty tough! 😅 I had a contract job that kept me active, but now that job is over and I'm back to figuring out ways to stay active. I've been calling my partner and going on a walk while we chat. But that only works when we are both free to call. I've also found that adding simple exercises to my daily to-do list is keeping me active. Right now, I'm doing ten push-ups every day, but I'm hoping to add more soon! 🙂
  15. There are days when I'd think that I would like to be in a relationship but after asking myself why I immediately turn back to "I guess not." "Maybe you're just horny?" Sometimes but not most of the time. I think I'd be less horny than others since I haven't had sex yet too. You're less likely to seek what you haven't had although that was a different case for Adam and Eve. And so the 'desire' to sometimes engaged oneself with another may be influenced by films and the idea of it. When we want to be in a relationship, I think the label is less of a priority, and caring about the other person becomes more emphasized in one's mind. Nowadays, connections are more casual which I think is good and bad as all other things. People have more space to decide what they want but with more freedom, an unexpected turn of events is also likely. It's important to be communicative regardless of what exists between two people. Many times, what someone needs may not be a romantic relationship but only someone to talk to. During these times, boundaries are important because there are so many intersections that feelings get confused. Being treated well and checked upon can be misinterpreted easily by someone who received little love growing up. These things that I've typed are a bit scrambled around but it all points out the confusion. When you're lonely, be clear with yourself before engaging so that you don't end up confusing another being.
  16. We are born in a place where things, to an extent, are waiting to happen. Experiences are then encountered in that geographical and cultural space, which then molds the person. To some, what they've decided in the past or whatever activities they've engaged with limits their present self. It happens that consciously or not, people decide that something is not for them because they'd think that 'they're not that kind of person.' It could also be that the surroundings manifest themselves to the individual making that person used to what's there is. Turning away from the stuff we're uncomfortable with isn't exactly bad but it is limiting. Identifying the limits that would negatively affect our life is valuable, besides we only got one. What I'm saying though is if you were born in a different place, there are still things that you would do and not do. We're all avatars. Limit yourself but not leniently. If you are suffocated by the limitations, get out of it or at least maximize your limits. Your preconditioning may affect whatever you'll do but what we can't do is but a construct.
  17. Hundreds of thousands of years ago, our ancestors would be on the lookout for food through hunting and gathering. This means that they have often used their physical abilities, and have maximized the use of their body and senses. Physique and instincts were a necessity to survive in a bare world without infrastructures and industrialization. Life was sensitive to the prevalent possibility of threats. And so I've reached a thought that our ancestors would be more connected with themselves. Because aside from little to no distractions, they would often practice the use of their body. And body means a lot, it helps an individual further realize his or her existence in a physical sense. Exercising may be seen as a tool to reach a certain body goal, while on the other hand, it can also be perceived as a form of celebrating what one has. Many people might despise or hide away from something that tires them and that's understandable. However, physical activities don't only affect the body but also the mind. Arguing on how much effort you're gonna exert, I think, is a manifestation of self-connection. Similarly, just like someone on the hunt would wonder when he or she would attack. Engaging with physical activities, regardless of difficulty might increase self-awareness of one's capacity.

    Staying Active During the Pandemic

    Well let me tell you what is working for me, nothing! I need to get my tail outside (yes, in the snow) and get walking the hills around me again. I did get a smart watch for Christmas so I am hoping that it will make me more accountable. In my defense, I had surgery and a long recovery with nothing but sitting around. That started this whole pandemic and I really haven't gotten much gumption to get moving again.

    Christmas Shopping For An Adult

    I'm having this issue right now with one of my nieces. I'm leaning towards getting her something classic to wear, like a simple, neutral hoodie. I'm also wondering if I should get her something she can consume that won't spoil too easily, like packs of tea from a brand she likes. In either case, I think I'll have to run these ideas by her parents. Good luck with your nephew!

    Christmas Shopping For An Adult

    I remember when my nephew was a kid; it was easy to do Christmas shopping for him. Now he is a grown man, and I want to get him a present, but I don't know what to get him that would be useful. I don't want to give him money and a card because it would seem like I didn't make an effort to get him a gift. Does anyone know what I could do?

    Socially Distant Holidays

    I'm not traveling by airplane anytime soon (for holidays or vacation). Airports are a breeding ground for the virus. I am however going to celebrate with my children. We are all local to each other. I, like many others, cannot wait for a reliable vaccine. Something to end all this craziness, or at least slow the spread.

    Socially Distant Holidays

    It has been a long time since I have seen my family and I was planning on seeing them this Christmas, but these COVID-19 cases are steadily increasing. On top of that, my sister-in-law's father just passed away due to COVID and her brothers tested positive for the virus. So, I'm content with staying put this Christmas and making some holiday FaceTime calls to my family. I hope other people decide to remain in their homes as well.

    Socially Distant Holidays

    No way! I thought COVID-19 was no big deal, especially once my sister caught it and recovered with little fuss. Then my sister took part in a health study and learned that her blood is clotting abnormally, which apparently happens to many victims. She was perfectly healthy the month before, but now she's at risk for a stroke. So I'm with you on staying put. It's just not worth the risk!

    Hit My 7th

    I have hit my seventh post. Thank you so much for your time!
  25. What is the most interesting job you've had, and why was it the most interesting? Personally, the most interesting job I've had is an environmental educator and wildlife rehabilitator. I worked with raptors (birds of prey) and songbirds, to both rehabilitate them so they could be released back into the wild, and as an educator. I also helped provide medical care to emergency cases that were brought into the clinic. The job was perfect for me because I got to work with wild animals, and I was able to teach the public about conservation issues. I was also a scheduling conflict away from being a nude model, but that's another story.
  26. Every holiday season, my parents, adult siblings and I cycle through the same batch of games--Uno, Bang and Hearts. We are all fiercely competitive, and this leads to some very stressful game play experiences. This holiday season, I'm looking to try some new games with my family that will appeal to our competitive natures, but also won't dissolve into bickering about rules or arguments about point values. Card games or games with a simple set of rules would be best. There are seven of us in all and we are all over the age of eighteen. Honestly, I'm open to any suggestion at this point.
