Moving Musings

If you’ve been following my blog and Twitter, you’ve probably seen me de-clutter and clean more than usual. I de-cluttered my film, book, and manga collections. I threw away all my childhood stuffed animals save for one. I’ve even shared things that my parents have found that interested me (old Filipino money and an ancient rotary phone). I had a silent goal of cleaning up my clutter for two reasons: to lessen up what I own and to prepare for a move.

I shared my Hakodate trip previously. I’d wanted to include some of my thoughts about the trip in the post, but it grew way too long! Ergo, I opted to just write a separate thoughts post, and this post is it. I will document my views about the trip here — all from my flight experience to my coffee woes. After all, travelling is more than just going somewhere, and it’s all about the knowledge and insights you gain.

Contemplating Changes

Changes are a happening all the time. Some changes are expected, some are not. Some changes are good, some are not. We all encounter changes, and we can either make the best or the worst of it. Personally, I like things to be routine as a whole. Changes can provoke me negatively, especially when they are unexpected. However, give me time to think about a potential change, then I can accept them better. Just in the past couple of weeks, I’ve been told about some changes that will occur in the future. Some of these changes are ones I’ve initiated and planned for myself; others are changes I have no choice but to accept and take them as they come.

Before I start — last call to ask me some questions! Feel free to ask me anything! Moving on — after January 20, there had been a lot of events and happenings in the United States. Usually, I don’t pay attention to the political fiasco in the US, but the new administration in the capital awoke something in me. The changes have upset me and went against what I believe in. From human rights to immigration issues, I’d been very unhappy at some of the new stances the US politicians are taking. One particular issue had riled me up, and that led me to donate to its cause. From that moment on, I’d decided on a new goal for 2017.

The Importance of Bum Days

Last year I blogged about being an introvert. For those curious about my MBTI type, I fluctuate between an INTJ or ISTJ. What doesn’t fluctuate is that I’m an introvert. I’ve also come to realise that I am also a social or an outgoing introvert. As an introvert, I gain energy by being alone with my hobbies, but when I am with the right people, I’ll be super outgoing and actually gain energy by being around others just like an extrovert. But I can’t do that all the time. My job alone drains me because I’m dealing with what feels like ten thousand people on a daily basis that requires me to be quite talkative. On Saturdays, I usually designate that day to meet with friends, but Sunday is what I call my “bum day”.
