when emotions go unchecked

Being busy forces you not to think beyond what you usually face everyday but being busy does not make it go away. Sooner or later the things you are running away from will catch up on you. The emotions that were left unchecked for a time resurfaces and you’re suddenly overwhelmed of bottled up thoughts, questions, and emotions and whatever things that will come up your mind that you haven’t thought of for a while.

Welcome to my Sunday.

CURRENTLY

Reading A Conjuring of Lights by V.E. Schwab. I’m done reading it a few days ago. I haven’t opened my Kindle yet to look for a new novel to read. I’m actually waiting for someone to lend me A Clash of Kings because I’m in the mood of reading a book with a lot of deaths in it.

Writing a post of what I want to say but does not really write anything that is close to what I want to say. If that makes sense.

Listening to Ed Sheeran’s All of the Stars.

Watching  Trolls. I have a baby at home so it’s either an animation movie or Baby TV the whole day.

Thinking of things I don’t want to think about.

Smelling the smell of summer and stress. If such exists.

Wishing for something that only a Fairy Godmother could give me.

Hoping for a calm heart, mind and soul and pocket.

Wearing my usual get up when at home.

Needing rest and rest and rest and rest and rest. Did I just say rest?

Feeling emotionally drained and stressed. Hello, weekend.

-wl, a.

i want a work from home job, parefer naman

One of the things I scratched from my To Do List when I was putting up this blog is to forget about post memes. I used to have a lot of them on my previous blog because it makes the blog organized especially when I am covering differen topics. I grew tired of boxing everything I write in memes.

So why do this now, you ask? To fill in the space of this blog of course. I’m such a lazy bum when writing these days. I know, I know, I know, I have to build an audience blah, blah, blah—that’s why I’m doing this now, right? As always, don’t expect this to be a regular shenanigan in WLA, just whenever the mood strikes.

CURRENTLY

Reading Game of Thrones. Yes, finally after years of avoiding GoT, here I am. Can somebody lend me the second book? I’m nearly done with the first. 

Writing several blog posts that I hope to finish writing. Like this one.

Listening to my daughter talking my ear off. Babbling vowels, yelling, laughing, and saying dadadaddy all the time. Say mummamyy, daughter!

Watching a number of qAmerican Series, the ones that were on season break for the holidays last year. Done with the first half of Teen Wolf’s Season 6 and the latest episodes of The Flash Season 3. I’m about to continue where I left off with Arrow Season 5, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 2, Magicians Season 1 and 2.

Thinking of what to cook for the next two weeks, of the replacement nanny for my daughter, the household biweekly budget, and baby supplies.

Smelling Baygon’s residue. Hindi ako adik ha? Nagspray lang kasi malamok. Charot.

Wishing I was on a paid vacation, travelling somewhere, hitting the beach, a day without thinking of diapers, milk, budget and stressful work related tasks.

Hoping to get a replacement nanny soon. It’s hard to find a lasting nanny these days. The breed of kasambahay today are not long term material anymore (a few months, if you’re lucky, half a year) unlike the nannies we had back in the 90s – 00s. The shortest stint for a nanny then is 2 years. The longest one we had was 7 years. My nanny, who is about to go, is nice and approachable. Her husband is badgering her to go home to take care of their kids which left me with no choice but to let her go. I asked her to give us time to get a new one before she leaves and I’m glad she agreed. I hope we can get a replacement very soon so all of us can be happy and move on with our lives.

Wearing a comfy pambahay.

Loving Mobile Legends. HAHAHAHA. Deymit, it’s a good stress reliever and a bonding thing I have with beau.

Wanting a new job that will allow me to work from home and that pays well. I don’t have to face traffic every day and I get to see and be with my child most of the day. I might not even need a 24/7 nanny for her then.

Needing a good rest, massage, and a long weekend. I need sleep. With the unpredictable work schedule I have right now and sleeping with my child at night, I need all the sleep I can get.

Feeling tired, worried, and more. Hay. Given all the problems I have to face recently, it’s a challenge to choose joy. My word for this year is proving to be such a difficult word to achieve. Ohmeged, and we’re not even half through the year!

-wl, A.
