Life Logs: Games, Night Buses & Caviar

June 08, 2023

It's been a while since the last time I sat down and wrote a Life Log entry in this blog, and I think I am finding my way on how again these all worked. πŸ˜… The year 2023 is slowly passing by, and I have to say -- I still need to do some effort so that I could spend each day in a more intentional way. I admit that there are days wherein I didn't feel like doing anything, and I have learned to just let myself be. I became more mindful of listening to my body and my mind so that I don't overwork myself. If I feel like I needed to take a break, I do take that break (and have that Kit Kat!🍫).

πŸ’ƒ Experiences

  • Getting to play the highly-anticipated Hogwarts Legacy game.⚡It was one enchanting game experience that I spent hours of my life on. The Potterhead in me is forever grateful for this game. πŸ’– The honeymoon phase is over for me for this game, for sure, but I will not hesitate to go back if some DLC will drop for the game. πŸ˜‰
  • Taking the night bus to the province. We are all about discovering new things and experiencing new adventures, and this one right here for sure, is one for the books. I proved to myself that if there is a will, there is a way. I would not have done this before if I knew in myself that I'm in it half-heartedly. But I knew very well from the start that I didn't want to miss that event. And so for this, I even had to cancel plans with my friends (😒) and prioritize connections that are thicker than water. And hey, it was worth it. I reconnected with the members of my ancestral line and had the time to contemplate on how things have changed over the years. It's a sad thing, but it's not a bad thing. It is what it is. Change is part of life.
  • Buying caviar-flavored chips. Again, experiencing new things! I was getting hooked watching this YouTube channel about experiencing first class in planes. I got so fascinated with the system that I binged several videos in a span of several days. I noticed that caviar was always being served and was part of the menu, and so I got curious on how it actually tasted. Well thank you Universe, I stumbled upon caviar-flavored chips in the grocery. For the life of me I just couldn't pass the opportunity. How right the timing was. And so even though the aforementioned chips were 3x more expensive than my normal purchase, I still did it just to taste how it's like. It was good, but now that I have "hint" on how caviar tastes like, I'll have to say that it's expensive not because it's so good, but because of its high scarcity. 

⛰️ Accomplishments / Milestones

We got to spay our last female cat in the household! I was anxious, particularly on this one. I very well knew that this cat is the most fragile in the pack, and so I was extra uneasy with her operation, even though it was my third time to experience a pet being spayed. 

In the hours between us surrendering her to the spaying venue up to receiving the notification that she's ready to be picked up, a lot came running into my mind, and of course I even thought of the worst-case scenario. I gave a deep sigh of relief when I got the text from the spaying organizer that she has woken up after the surgery and ready to be picked up. Our cat took a while to get off the effects of anesthesia, and I was so happy when she finally acted normal again the next day. 

🧠Game Changer

Morning Manifestations + Evening Positive Affirmations. This combo was a killer. I was still reeling from the hazy and gloomy psyche that I have had for several months, and I was trying different things to make me feel better. One of those was these little morning routines that I came up for myself. Each morning I meditate for a few minutes, letting myself envision positive things for the day and also repeating positive words to heighten my energy right from the start of my day. I felt more energetic and "in the zone" each morning, and I am 100% sure that it is because of these positive energies that I was allowing myself to feel. I even started my 5AM routine during this time (spoiler alert: I only got to maintain that routine for a handful of months... I'll have to find a more sustainable routine for me πŸ˜…)

πŸ’‘ Takeaways

  • The hardest part will always be the start. That's where the power of friction is most felt. However, when things start to move, things will get easier.
  • Social Media stops the “flow” of things. It’s like a black hole that sips all the energy away. So, avoid them at all costs.
  • Let’s celebrate our little wins.
  • Say yes to life’s adventures <3
  • "For growth to happen, one must be challenged, but not overwhelmed." (I read this somewhere, but already forgot where. πŸ˜…)
