Today, I shall blog..
..because I haven't blogged in a while.
Ahh, my head is bursting. There's just too much to do and so little time to do it. Among the things fighting for attention are the Literature book review, Filipino Thesis (I mean, GOD, who really writes a thesis in Filipino?), Theo project, WriMaMed Script... I seriously feel like I'm in an emergency room sometimes, 'cause right now, life is exactly like that. Some days are boring, nothing happens. Other days are loaded, heavy, stressful, that I can't sleep 'til late because I'm up all night doing a paper that will get me a halfway decent grade.
I'm tired, stressed out, burned out. Some days, when I get home from school, I want to blog but I can't. Sometimes there's nothing to write about. ...okay, that's a lie. There's always something to write about, but I can't seem to find the words that will perfectly convey what I want to write about. I miss blogging. I miss writing. I haven't written a chapter of my fic in ages. I haven't read in a long time either.
Last week, I was able to read three books. All fiction, meaning not related at all to schoolwork. It felt so great. I felt so accomplished after reading each book, because I felt that the real Jasmine, who was being suffocated by so many stressful things, was finally able to take a breath of fresh air. Finally. It was like a part of me of long ago (but not really long ago) came back, and life seemed more manageable, more bright.
And on the subject of a bright life, I met up with high school friends this week, too. Man, they always know how to make me smile. Nothing beats high school friends. We talked about such vulgar topics over lunch, and it felt nice because with them, I can be extremely open in a way I can't with my college friends. It's definitely different when you've grown up with someone, 'cause you know that they're going to love you anyway, quirks and all.
I'm so excited for the 28th. I can't wait to see my JBnoys again. :) Aaah, it's been just too long. It's the only thing keeping me going right now. I keep thinking of what will happen when we finally see each other again after a zillion years. I wonder if people cut their hair. I wonder if some of them had lipo done. Kidding. But seriously.
With life and all its' stresses, I still feel pretty darn lucky 'cause I'm blessed with all these friends who can offer support and make me smile even when I feel like crying. Ah. Crying because I don't know how to translate an entire English book report into Filipino, or crying because my eyes are bleeding from staring at the computer screen for so long. :P Well, whatever. C'est la vie.
