So I just came home from SINNER/S: BAGUIO – A Spoken Word Show and Open Mic Night, my first spoken word show and I’m still at a loss for words. That’s probably a funny thing to say, since when I got home, I went directly to my room, opened my laptop, and now, I’m currently writing a post about it. I just CAN’T not write about this as soon as I got home. I was tired from the long day I’ve had, but the urge is greater, my friends.
We’ve been fed this notion that by 20-something, we should have our lives figured out, or at least we should know where we’re bound to go: getting a solid career, settling down on a particular age, and basically having the time of our lives travelling and well, creating memories. Ah, the most coveted work-life balance. A life portrayed on many feel-good music videos. But in reality, not everything goes according to plan. And when things don’t go as planned, we tend to feel lost and disoriented. Well, there’s something I have to tell you: I take it one day at a time, and I’m fine with that.
