Today’s a Monday, I know, but this is my blog, so let’s follow my rules. (And I’m sure the creator of this tag won’t mind? Or at least I hope they don’t).
Anyhoo, I am currently
reading America Is Not The Heart by Elaine Castillo, and it’s hitting way too close to home;
writing this post and a thinkpiece (charot) on OPM and migration. The second one doesn’t seem to be taking shape though — I just don’t have the discipline to do research, prfft;
listening to Eraserheads’ “Sino Sa Atin” off the under-appreciated “diket-diket” album Natin99;
thinking that I really do like Natin99. Legit, beh. Enjoying this album comes with age, I think; I just never cared for it when I was younger. But now? Dude. “Kahit Ano” is the barkada anthem. “Tama Ka,” “Maselang Bahaghari,” “Pop Machine,” “May Sumasayaw” — damn solid bangers, I’m telling ya;
smelling tea, I guess. I’m currently drinking decaf green tea and eating cake. I love cake. I think cake is my favorite junk food ever;
wishing for zero glitches when I do my inspections tomorrow;
hoping that I get to paint again soon;
wearing an oversized t-shirt and a pair of denim pekpek shorts;
loving the Natin99 album. I swear I’m not being ironic!
wanting a looper pedal. ‘Tang ina netong Natin99 e, nakaka-inspire magpatche-patche rin ng kanta (feeling??);
needing some serious artistic inspiration to create something beautiful;
feeling steady…is “steady” a feeling? But have you heard of the song “Perfect Day”? By Lou Reed? That slow, almost stoic pace is how exactly I’m feeling right now. It’s a snowy Thanksgiving Monday and, for the most part, I really have nothing to complain about.
The featured photo was taken last year, probably on just a regular winter weekday. Happy Thanksgiving y’all!
