Everything VS Bad Days

Another Monday. I was supposed to write a long speech for my college event, prepare an iGraphy post, finish homework and a bunch of things that matter in a serious way, before the weekend. What I did instead, was fighting off flu and cursing the fever I have at the moment.
When I'm sick and unable to do things, I'm badly nostalgic.

There are good and bad days. In good days, I feel like the most accomplished person on earth and when the bad days strike, they bring self-doubt, lack of creativity and writer's block. It's hard to face them with head held high. That's where nostalgia hits hard. The good old days, the time spent with people I adore the most, flashback of adventures and everything.
The only way I've found to work these out is to remember the reason to move forward. It could be a simple long-set dream, a small goal or something similar, but as long as it helps me out of this phase, I will go for it.

I'm in the middle of switching to my first ever phone, from iPod. Hashtag a grown up life. Though I've never liked the idea of being virtually available 24/7 (that's the main purpose of a phone, sigh!) but it's a necessity nonetheless. I'm both excited & annoyed at the same time. Ha! Ha! This is something I'm looking forward in this week. Also, college is getting more social and hectic so I need to focus on that too. I've missed writing poetry so much that all I want to do is jump out of bed, maybe slowly since flu makes me terribly dizzy, so yeah slowly jumping out of bed to jot down some ideas for new poems.
In these rows of bad days, I've got to know a few things:

  1. Failure is inevitable. And I don't care. I'm progressive and failure is just another word.
  2. I utterly dislike being sick.
  3. Some of the cough syrups don't taste bad.
  4. If I had screwed up a few things back in time, I can still fix them.
  5. Gadgets are hard to understand.
  7. Friends will always help you get back on the track. 
  8. My twin sister is kind of awesome.
  9. I'm obsessed with Pinterest, fo' sho'.
  10. I despise archaic English.

Wish me luck. I have a long way to go today and tomorrow and the rest of the week.

  1. I can totally relate to having bad days and being uninspired. I think everyone, whether creative and non-creative go though it and it's just kinda ugh. But then we get trudge through it and it's worth it! Congrats on the phone, I honestly don't know what I would do without mine (what if my car breaks down and I can't call anyone??!) but I do envy you on being uncontactable! And college is totally going hectic for me as well. Also, get well soon! :)
