One moment

In stories, there’s always just one moment where everything changes. I wonder if it happens in real life too. Like if everyone is just heading towards some point of time in life where something happens and the whole world turns upside down (or right side up). Examples of stories with moments: 1) Harry Potter finds […]

On Stories and Writing

I have had so many story ideas that I leave behind, unscripted, open and hanging. I feel so guilty for letting them loose, stuck in time forever. Maybe they continue on, without me, and I’d never really know. I want to dive into them again, but it’s hard! It’s like trying to renew a broken […]

Talking to God

I’m really bad at talking to God.  Because… Well, Sometimes, I don’t exactly talk to him or think that I am. When I pray, I feel like I’m talking to myself most of the time. When I pray with other people it feels more like i’m talking to them instead of Him. When I write […]

Lunch Break

Well. Almost Lunch Break. I have about half an hour to go, but hey! I deserve a teeny little break. Maybe I’m starting to feel a little better here. I have a couple of fish sticks sticking out of my mouth like a farmer chewing hay. And I’m discreetly propping my legs up on a […]

Rachel’s Report of the Day

It feels a little odd to be a part of the morning rush now.  And it’s been a while since my days had to do with time on a clock. And dragging myself out of bed. Crowded trains, smashing yourself into someone else’s butt. And papers. And Microsoft excel. And a printer/scanning/photocopier that goes at […]

Letting Go

I’m learning to let go of a lot of things this year. I’m slowly getting the hang of it. Actually, I think it’s more of the accepting part, you know? I don’t think we can really hold on to anything we want to for long enough. Eventually it will go, it’s only the problem of […]

Random Friday

I can’t really decide on just one topic to write about today. So I thought I’d just go on about anything that comes into my mind!   Today was a great day! It really exceeded my expectations of being totally and utterly exhausted and bored in work. I guess it really is the people that […]

Voice of Truth

Angels can whisper into your heart, but so can demons who haunt you too. Imagine if someone said these things in a hissy, mean voice in the back of your mind: “You’re not good enough” “Who’d want somebody like you? You’re a loser, what good can you bring to anyone?” “You’re just being a burden, […]

Work

I don’t know how people can survive just sitting in a box the entire day staring at a computer screen replying email after email after email. Today I tried escaping office work to be a games station master instead. I really like it. At least I’m talking to people and not spending alone time with […]
