Hello blog, one of my goals this year is to write more. Pero sobrang tamad ko lang talaga! I’m not lazy pala, super efficient ko nga eh pero the problem is I easily get sidetracked.
Yesterday before I slept I Googled on how can you prevent being sidetracked and one of the tips that resonated with me was ‘don’t plan much, just do it!‘. I love planning (a little too much) but I end up not getting much result or action from those plans, pathetic.
I decided to just write today, now! Real-time! No drafts so forgive my random thoughts, it’s my random blog in the first place.
It’s 13:02 and I’m having my second lesson for the day. I’m working for a Japanese company and we offer English tutorial services to Japanese and Brazilian students. I am working home-based and as much as possible I try to work for 10 hours everyday! I started my English tutor journey way back in my Junior year at the University. It has been a glorious five year career and still ongoing. There are ups and downs with this career (just like any other) but the fact that I stayed here for half a decade already means that it’s not that bad. It can pay the bills!
It’s 13:12 I’m having an article discussion with my student and it’s about an award-winning novel that is written using only a single sentence. The novel is 223 pages long consisting a single run-on sentence. Ang toxic basahin ng novel naisip ko haha, iyong explanation ng author why he had this writing style ay dahil ghost ang main character. First person narration siya so iyong perspective ng ghost ang mababasa sa novel and as a ghost the character doesn’t know when he will disappear kaya ganoon, run-on sentence siya. It’s been a long time since I last finished a novel/book. I love reading talaga pero hindi book. I feel bad about it actually. #ZeigarnikEffect
It’s 13:28 and I have two more minutes before my next lesson. I’m thirsty. Ayan bumaba ako para kumuha ng tubig. Hassle talaga kapag two-floors bahay, tapos nasa baba ang kusina tapos kwarto mo nasa taas. My current lesson is about another article on how making others meet can make you happier. It’s like when you introduced a friend to another friend and they end up being friends too or even couples. I agree happiness lies in our relationships talaga.
It’s 14:36 and I’m now talking to my fifth student today. My YouTube vlogs are finished uploading na rin sa wakas. I do vlogs but these videos are all unlisted. I love to randomly record videos of my everyday life especially when I’m out. After this class I’ll have my 25 minutes break I hope to add more substantial thoughts here by then.
It’s 17:47 and the sun is about to set. I’m on my last class in this shift. I’ll have another 30 minutes break after this. It’s time to take a shower and eat dinner.
It’s 18:43 and my current student is not picking up, I still need to wait for him though until the lesson slot ends. I’m done eating dinner. Mom cooked Bicol Express which was really good I tried not to overeat though. I did not have enough time to shower, maybe on my next break at 21:00.
20:55 My third shift just ended yahoo! I’ll take a shower na GG!
23:51 and I’m done for today! 10 hours today whewsz.
Grabe sorry sobrang random ng blog post HAHA! GG! Thanks for reading. I’ll do a lot of reading tonight and maybe eat midnight snack kasi shocks I watched Mukbang videos again huhu.
