[1: 1,314 of 10,000] I Am Switching Off The Daily Post

In Journal on May 16, 2014 at 4:35 PM

I like doing things in order, if you have been hanging out here, quietly reading through my life’s mumbling, you would recognised that I ultimately follow a post a day; but the reality hits me that I got to set some priorities and left the leisure blogging on the side. Hold up! Did I just say leisure or it’s pouring my soul into words?

NOWI have promised but now I am being smart and convenient that instead of working out the logistics I am enjoying the ride and post as many as I can in a day in real time without cheating of back tracking dates. Okay, I got to be honest that I have been slacking for months because I have chosen a battle – perfection at my job that pays the bill to pay for my monthly internet connection at home or the thought of do the things that I have to do to do what I really want to do.

I am reading the book “The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield and the resistance devil could be rejoicing that I am abandoning routine. I may be abandoning my promise of daily but I am still committed to completing my 10,000 posts and the next and the next. I have accepted the reality that blogging should not feel like pressure and task; a part of routine. It is my voice for art, expression of creativity, and an outlet for my exceedingly loud voice in the head into concrete digital writing. Is it in the brink of abandonment or just the mind trick that I do that discipline will have a new definition for my blogging? I better be sure I shall have a post in each week or I would be kidding myself and my muse will leave me completely.

[1: 1,299 of 10,000] It Takes 45 Posts

Yor's Internal CloudI use the Daily Post’s named yearly tag, I started in 2011 with PostADay2011 and so for 2014 it’s a new tag. At the beginning of the year, PostADay2014 was no where to be found from my internal cloud, I was getting anxious when will I automatically see it in my most used tags, then I discovered its on the 45th posts!!!

Right now, my cloud’s screenshot is the image at the left, and it is a lot more convenient. It is also fun to look at it as I may kind of gauge the subjects that are close to my writing heart.

What does your tag looked like? Which ones have the biggest font size?

 

[1: 1,225 of 10,000] Happy 3irthday

In Article on November 29, 2013 at 11:17 PM

birthday-cupcakeThis blog finally reached 3 years old, which I started in 2010!!!

I’ve managed to finish 1,225 blog posts over 3 years. If I keep this pace, I would finish my goal of 1st 10,000 by approximately 2037, I’d be 57 by then. Will I be a real guru at that age? Am I still alive?

I made this blog anonymous ever since it started so the moment I stopped posting, I am most likely dead. Morbid thought but I should make sure I put this blog in my last will and testament for my children to one day read it; if I ever get married but most importantly if WordPress’ server still exist.

I’ve noticed that every year could be summed up with 1 particular focus –

Year 1 – I was extremely excited about blogging that I was truly obsessing.

Year 2 – My world revolve around my relationship with my Mum and everything surrounding it.

Year 3 – I fell in love unexpectedly with the wrong man.

I wanted Year 4 to be about a successful business move for my sisters and I. Aiming to be a great addition of entrepreneurs in this world. It would be a great cheer and celebration when my writing starts to advance incredibly. I should make it happen. 🙂

[1: 1,168 of 10,000] Blog Relentlessly

In Article on October 7, 2013 at 12:00 AM

Relentlessly Awesome ShirtI am claiming myself. I can’t believe that I am starting to forget who am I and the things that I am personally passionate about. I am hoping that working harder to blog would remind me of what I truly care about.

I am blogging endlessly to meet my personal commitment of a daily post. I still have to complete 13 blog posts including this. I wish my body doesn’t need sleep and require energy to keep thinking and moving. I hope that I would not always choose work over my personal love.

I can’t explain it but as I try to keep up with the up-to-date posting, I am starting to regain my passion on writing. I am sacrificing a lazy sleep and irrelevant day dreaming to hopefully be productive to come up and share meaningful ideas to the world. I should write more daringly to really make it count too!

[1: 1,156 of 10,000] Famous Blogger

TypingAnyone who is serious about blogging would definitely dream of being famous, but does it end with being famous? I hope it starts with love and ends with a purpose to move people.

I wanted to become famous, but my only dilemma right now (which is quite crucial) is the fact that I have no clue on what truly drives me anymore except for one, that is falling in love with a man I can’t have and doesn’t want to have, and yet he clouds my mind and froze me to oblivion. I am madly in love with him, I can’t believe “madly in love” really exists until now.

To my comfort though, I know that life has always taught me to be in an uncomfortable position to teach me an experience that I may use on my writing or give it as an advice to someone that needs it. The current life experience is pushing me to write a tragedy novel (as a matter of fact!), because I know that loving an unavailable charming man is both sinful and short lived. It seems exciting to daydream about it but when I return to reality I get my heart broken over and over.

So being famous may need to be parked somewhere but I could taste it or is it the Krispy Kreme Doughnut beside me that is making me an emotional eater due to unrequited love…

[1: 1,149 of 10,000] Poor Blog Writing

In Article on September 18, 2013 at 12:00 AM

I am slacking for how many days now. I can’t believe that I am missing so many blog posts!!!

The procrastinator in me has a ridiculous valid excuse, I am losing the deepest reason to write but the saddest part is losing the struggling reason to live. I am becoming so complacent with my life that I don’t find the slightest desire to strive to be my best. Is this a phase for a 33 year old? Am I too stubborn to appreciate the wonderful blessings surrounding me? Or this is still a grueling reality of a medication’s side effect?

My love tank is still empty and I cannot wait for people to fill it; I got to fill it myself. I have to entertain focus and challenge the impossible. I have to continue to search how to make my life wonderful with excitement and desire. It’s not easy but I believe with all my heart that it is possible.

Since I am way behind with my writing, I can’t really swallow to carelessly write poorly. I started this blog not because I wanted to nonchalantly finish 10,000 blog posts of so many batches that I can do, but to be a great writer. I’ve dreamed to write a book where every line is an aphorism, a quotable quote, if I’ve achieve that, I know it paid being diligent.

God of wisdom, enlighten me.

[1: 1,116 of 10,000] What Weekend?

In Journal on August 16, 2013 at 7:07 AM

Thanks to Katy Perry’s Roar that accompanied me all wee hours to write backlog blogs, buy some stock investments, read some articles, and get few naps in between. I know it’s weekend here in Dubai but I am heading to the office today to do some financial work and place the new Pottery Barn Bedford Desk Accessories to make me happy at my work desk. I didn’t go overboard to buy all three things:

Lady Susan1. Lazy Susan keeps supplies within easy reach and it took me a while to buy this last night. I played it, swing it delightfully and decided I am getting it. It is pretty cute! I am very excited to see this on my desk today and I already imagine playing it for the coming days. It was not really cheap but it will be worth it. The happiness it brings to my OCD – absolutely priceless.

2. Caddy holds 3 photos, 3″ x 3″ each – This was actually my first choice of purchase but I finally decided that my papers which I have a lot will not work at the back of the caddy. I was excited about the photo frames but finally decided my personal life doesn’t go to the office, it is private and it is mine. Plus, I am scared to open the photo container, I have a great feeling I will eventually break it.

Organizing Set
3. Two-drawer paper organizer includes labels. I think it’s the perfect replacement to my crappy metal tray that I gave my assistant to use instead. I adore the drawer handles. My sissy suggested that I should get a white one but the imperfection on the wood work was so obvious that I decided to get the black ones.

I love organizing!!! ♥ 🙂

[1: 1,022 of 10,000] Candy Crush Saga

candy_crush_saga

My sisters, friends, and boss included are hooked with Candy Crush Saga. I have nothing against them for enjoying the game but I never played it and have no intention of even trying because I will probably get annoyed, addicted, and end up feeling guilty that I have better things to do than playing a game.

It does teach my sisters patience especially for waiting a life and give them excitement on the part of outsmarting one another. They also kidnapped my iPhone and installed the app while I was sleeping so they can play with it even if I said I don’t want them to do that.

It’s not because I am being too good for those stuffs but I am not willing to give up TV and blogging so that is just about enough to keep me busy and addicted with something else. 😉

[1: 1,000 of 10,000] And Then There Goes My First 1,000 Blog Post Completed

1000th

I started this blog on November 29th, 2010 and today I just reached my 1,000th blog post! I am pretty excited because 9,000 more doesn’t seem so hard to accomplish for my first batch. It is definitely a process that I would never rush.

It was possible to finish 1,000 because there are so much that can be shared from one human being. The experience and the drama in my head are overwhelming if I just keep it all to myself. This blog is indeed my expression for a life that is lived not perfectly but the way I make an effort onto how.

I look forward to a better writing by the time I reached my 2,000th.

Cheers Yor, well done!

[1: 994 of 10,000] I Am Doing Advance Blog Posts

In Article on April 18, 2013 at 12:00 AM

Blogger To become a better writer, I was supposed to religiously blog everyday but with my career commitment I just can’t manage writing sanely, spend quality time with family and work crazily.

I want my writing to be a real date so for about 3 weeks in a row now I have been doing advance blog posts. I prefer to write on weekend (Friday or Saturday) because I know it is the time I am supposed to give to myself without the crazy on call work load (and I thought only doctors are on call). I find it easier to create more than 7 blog posts in one sitting that to write about anything within the day probably because I suppressed writing for how many days that when I am finally in front of my computer to blog the words pours hard and fast. It is such an exhilaration to be just writing.

The exciting part is I am curious to find out what blog was scheduled for the day. It’s like eating my favorite ice cream whenever I reread my daily blog post. It’s not blog narcism or is it?
