So I think I’m back. For real this time. Actually, I’m just hoping it will stick this time and I get back to writing regularly. The past year was emotionally draining and I did a lot of escapism, mostly via video gaming. Just off the top of my head, I played about 1000 hours on 2 consoles, and that does not even include play time on my phone. I didn’t do much of anything else. I’ve practically ignored my reading list and watch list except for some shows on Netflix.
Some updates. My Nanay’s cancer is back after more than 10 years. She finally agreed to get treatment again October last year. Yeah, that took so much from me. No, actually, it still does. It scares me a lot and some times I just shake when the fear and anxiety hit me. All I can do is pray and make things easier for her. My life right now revolves around her.
Oh I also changed jobs in the company. I think there currently is an underlying drama involving me. Some teammates told me recently that there were some who talked behind my back about petty things work-related and some totally not. I really did not mind when I first heard because I am confident I didn’t do anything wrong or anything against them. But it baffles me and frankly, it frustrates and hurts me. If there is one thing I am proud of, I can honestly say I have great work ethics. I am also generally fair to everybody I know, even when they don’t deserve it. Anyway, I don’t want to be rant-y and really, I can take it. It’s just one of those realities in life that you’ve got to accept. I could fight back but what good would that do? Doing so will just add more drama and I don’t need that at work. I have a lot at home and I just couldn’t handle petty drama at work. Anyway, I recently got validation from my new boss and it made me feel better. I feel vindicated.
So yeah, this is actually what made me think to come back here. I’ve always felt that this blog is a safe haven, one where I can just say what I want to say, to talk about things I love, and really just to express myself. I will try my hardest to write more. I also want to do stuff I skipped the last year like reading. I do have a lot more games to play though but I will space my time out for other activities. I’m looking forward to it!

Alrighty! I’m pumped up to start this year’s challenge after not reading anything (not even comics) since September. Aside from all the things that happened last year, the last book I read, “The Girl on the Train” by Paula Hawkins did a number on me. It wasn’t a difficult read however it was very engaging and I got emotionally invested on it.
For 2016, I committed to reading 12 books on Goodreads. I know it’s significantly less than last year’s (24). This because I have to make up for last year’s count: the comics bumped up my numbers. So this year, I’m reading 12 and then another 8.
I’ve already decided on the first three books: “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” by Alan Dean Foster, “Modern Romance” by Aziz Ansari, and “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho.
And that’s it for reading challenges updates. I hope I can do more reviews this year for the books I finished.
