It’s only been the first week and a half of January so far. Didn’t leave the country or anything, but my inner life has shifted a little bit. Just enough to have an impact.
– Getting back into reading
Dropping by the library a week ago and picking up borrowed books brought me a lot of joy.
I purchase books every now and then, especially local literature. But running tighter on cash nowadays, getting back into the routine of regular library visits don’t sound too bad.
Have read 4.48 Psychosis and The Clockwork Orange so far. Getting into Ovidia Yu’s works soon (currently reading Dr K K Seet’s foreword) as well as a book about Illuminating the images of suffering for theatre.
I have also been reading my entire backlog of saved articles piled up through the years. Been learning and been thoughtful through this whole process, feeding my mind.
If you have more articles you think I should read, bonus if it challenges my way of thinking, send them my way!
– Superhero Me Internship
After attending the welcome lunch last weekend, I am pretty excited to be spending my time until end of March on this.
I’d love to gain more knowledge and experience working with different groups of people as well as empowerment. So this will be quite a learning journey for me I believe.
Current count, I have my standard ear lobes, septum, nostril, daith and helix. Some being quite troublesome at the moment, but no pain so they’ll be alright with more healing time. Fingers crossed.
Wanted piercings (and more ink) for the longest time, so I am happy to have finally went ahead to go for them. Super happy to have found a friendly and trustworthy piercer as well!
Side project but grateful to engage in crafting with my heart and hands again.
Working on two murals and one journal at the moment, and I have handed over the eight diaries I had the privilege to work on so far to their humans.
Hopefully as the year keeps going, I will be able to consistently work on more projects throughout the 12 months.
Been contemplating for a while, but yes, I have a simple website now that I am still in the process of moving my theatre reviews over, and then the writes I have done over the past couple of years.
This space remains my casual blog of text vomit and random thoughts. That’s more for proper reviews and all that.
Look it up if you are interested! It’s the closest of a child I will be having in my life.
– Sleep cycle
My sleep cycle is still pretty screwed up but I have been letting myself go. And slowly move my body clock to take rest slightly earlier each time.
But if I have no early days, I indulge in more quiet time when the entire household is asleep to read and write and sort out things in my mind. I like this.
– Keeping the engines running
Been putting in the time to declutter every now and then when I need some time off, sending out emails and crossing my fingers a lot.
But I have been making plans and starting moves to engage in the parts of me that I didn’t manage to really explore past couple of years.
So, I guess I am doing pretty good if I may say so myself.
I have also been a lot quieter on social media, and I like it this way. So you might see less of me on this page and every other account I may have.
But I think that’s okay.
Still looking for people to have coffee, tea and drinks for the rest of the year. So stranger or not, I am waving at you
