resolution series: [fourteen] personal space

image

having a busy schedule is good because that means i am always productive and proactive. my schedule is usually packed seven days a week, twenty four hours a day, and often needing more time in a day to squeeze everything in to accommodate everyone. it can also be very tiresome because i am always stepping on the gas pedal as hard as i can dashing from one errand to the next. but is accommodating and meeting everyone’s needs my top priority and the sole purpose of living? sometimes, i do wish to have more time for myself away from the rest of the world. aside from taking care of business in the public scheme of things, there are also planning, thinking and number crunching tasks that goes behind the scenes that often gets overlooked. these things tend to be handled in my spare time, which so happens to be time sacrificed from eating and sleeping. i like my personal space and enjoy time alone but it’s very hard to come by. when i am alone, i am able to sit there in silence and reflect on things while putting things into its proper perspective. i find being at the gym gives me that sense of privacy where i can plug in my headphones and shut off the rest of the world. the same can be found when training at taekwondo outside of class time, when all those annoying people don’t interfere at all the wrong times. it’s one of those moments that i will do my thing so don’t you dare come into my bubble while i am in my zone focusing on myself

day 466 – post sunday work

image

a nonstop sunday full of work, someone needed post blackbelt test drinks to finish off the weekend. with a couple of the crew chilling and doing some logistics planning because this is the only down time i get so must use it wisely. liking the temporary freedom while parents not in town; gives me the space and freedom to be out more often than not but now i need to prepare my own meals

day 384 – my lunch

image

after lunch stroll near the water on a sunny day to get a quick breath of fresh air. thought i must move a bit to walk off the soreness but the more i walk the sorer i felt. lay low today and get much needed rest, having been physically overworked and majorly sleep deprived the past week

day 245 – routine

image

fourth day strong and it’s kind of coming back to me and becoming more of a routinea again. daily morning hot chocolate or french vanilla to keep me company and ease myself into the afternoon but the bigger concern is what keeps me awake in the afternoon especially when the weather gets warmer and sun shines brighter. caffeine can only have so much effect until it wears off

day 195 – down time in downtown

taking some time off to refresh and wrap up all the grudge and negativity i hold as it is time to move on from the recent understanding or lack there of. wandering around and revisiting an area that i once spent countless hours during my studio. after briefly going down memory lane, a stop at the warehouse was in order

day 55 – my bestie

image

just felt like sharing my childhood bestie and cutest lifelong companion that’s been with me since day one through thick and thin. thought this was very cute that my stuffy was following had some fashion sense and a lot of swagger. things i do on my down time that proves i will never grow up
