Let’s be human

Hi.

Wow. I really am don’t know how to start or where to start.

I guess I’ve been watching a lot of shows lately. I started crocheting, at first a beanie, then more beanies and a full sweater. I was amazed at my products and the results afterward. I was happy.

While I was crocheting, I was watching Netflix simultaneously. I finished 6 seasons of Schitt’s Creek, 7 seasons of The 100, and sporadic Korean Dramas.

That explained why I haven’t thought of writing anything.

Today post will just be an easy one. I really enjoy my life at the moment, could have been better with more traveling this year, nonetheless, life is still good. I got some hiking in. I’m financially stable, for now. My integrity is still intact. Life goes on. Hopefully, I’ll stay in this time and season for a bit longer before moving on to more crazy journeys. I sure will enjoy every last bit.

I finished my run for today. I’ve been running almost everyday now except the day I went hiking. I learn a thing or two about running that once you’re at your sweet speed with a constant body movement, your mind and your body merge in. Right at that moment, everything seems to disappear. You’re running but you’re not running. I’m not sure how to explain this. I’m still experiencing it and not quite know how to put it down.

Imagine one day, when you’re free of worries and ambitions, life doesn’t end then, maybe that’s when you start living.

Until then, let’s be human.

This is what happened

Last blog, I was stressing out about running. That story was just two days ago but I felt like that was forever. I promised to update my progress the next day and I deeply apologize.

Let me rewind the time.

On Saturday, I did wake up early at 0700 which was before the sunrise. I ran and walk and ran and walk… lol. It took more almost an hour for 5 miles around the block. Then I got back and was excited to let everyone know that I did make it! But I got caught up to the next tasks immediately.

I went to two markets getting food for the week. Next, I went to Joann’s store to get some yarns and knitted a scarf. That ended the day pretty much. At night, we have some friends over for a feast that we prepared after the markets.

The day was long. I tried to post. I typed like a sentence. And, I stopped. I slept well that night.

The next day, Sunday.

Sunday was good, then brutal, but satisfying, and whole.

I woke up early, at around 0630. Got ready and had some coffee. Then, I was on a road to my friends’ place TO THE MOST AMAZING PLACE ON EARTH —- MOUNT ADAMS in Washington State.

This was our journey. We started driving at 0930. Got there at 11:15. Had food and started hiking at 11:30. It took us almost 5 hours to get up to the High Camps where most hikers were backpacking. Disclaimer, the trail was 8 miles round trip and normally would take about 2-3 hours to get up there. We were stopping a lot to take pictures that’s why it took us a long time. We had fun though.

Because we were hiking up so late, we got down when the sun was setting. Fortunately we got to our car before it was completely dark.

My body was so sore and at that time was like water. I wanted a hot bath so badly. We got back to our place almost 2300. I showered and slept super well last night.

Today. Monday.

I got up not too early but felt super refreshing. Oh I hit all my rings from my Apple watch and killed more than 1000 cal on the hike.

I had to go back to the armory to check on my AGR application. I finally send the application and hope that I can get an interview with them. I would love to work as a full-time staff for the National Guard.

That was all for today. I went back home around 1500. Sat around for a good while, editing some videos. Then I went outside and walked for more than 30 minutes. After that, I had dinner.

And, here I am. Writing this down to keep the record. The weekend was so good. I wanted to go back to Mount. Adam next time as a backpacker.

Hope you have a good time reading this. I’m gonna edit more videos and will post it promptly!

Mid-day post

I have done quite a bit this morning. All the things that I planned last night on my checklist were pretty much done. There is one thing, though, that I find it super hard to accomplish everyday…

RUNNING

I plan and plan and plan, everyday, every morning, to run at least 2 miles to get that cardio exercise. Planning is just planning. Unless I act upon my decision, then and only then, planning becomes helpful.

I know that. I know that very well. However, I only find that when the pressure is high, the demand is at stake, then I will have that kind of motivation to bring my ass out to freaking RUN. Holy cow, I am so lazy!!!

I need to stick to my plan. I need to create every opportunity for success.

So here is my plan:
1. Actually wake up before sunrise (~6:30)
2. Prepare the running clothes the night before (meaning tonight)
3. Stop being lazy
4. Have a running route. Got one! 4 miles round trip, just down the road and back. I’m not going to run fast, just to run but I will record the time to compare for the next run. OMG, I already thought of the next time…-.-

Alright, please wish me luck!!!

I sure will update tomorrow to whether I actually do it or not. Don’t worry. I’m not going to disappear any time soon. 😉

As Promised

So yesterday I said that I would come back to write more. But to be honest, it’s hard to keep the promise. I realize or know deep down in my heart that I have to pull extra extra strength on this matter if I want to keep going.

I could count with my fingers how many times I actually reached the goals. With just this simple task of writing, I am already giving up. I was thinking about doing a daily video log but that couldn’t happen today. I did film something though but I was too lazy to put it all together in a video.

I planed to do a lot of things and a lot of things disappeared to their own paths. How funny that I wanted to write daily since I was little and ended up kept such promise for only a few day. I remembered having a dairy as a new year resolution as well. I bet you could guess how that was.

Do you remember those time that new year resolution was a thing? I don’t remember if I set any goal for this year, 2020. Crazily wild as this year might be, most of us expected something amazing just because it’s 2020. Now, our definition of 2020 is, as everyone has witnessed, not what we would have imagined.

I would like to end this writing with a positive note that, hey, at least we can continue to do something, to move, to live, to love, to laugh, and to be. So I guess be the best that you can be today, without expectation but full of hope and appreciation. And, hey, I did it! I wrote something today. I posted.

I kept my promise! I hope the same for tomorrow but I will let tomorrow decide.

On to you, if you are actually reading this and something in your heart that can’t sit still, go and do as your heart desires.
