Gratitude Log I

2 weeks ago, I saw an Instagram post from musician, gamer, and cosplayer Ms. Ashley Gosiengfiao, and it got my attention because it’s about being thankful. Let me quote a part of the caption.

For 1 week, mentally (or even verbally) say thank you to the universe for every little thing. For every cup of coffee, for the roof over your head, for the gadget that you’re using to read this right now, for your nice skin today, for that momentary gust of wind on this hot day, for that pretty butterfly that just flew by, etc.

EVERY. LITTLE. THING. That you receive or that you just happen to find beautiful.

10-Minute Warning XXIII

OK. What can I tell here in under 10 minutes?

I’ll make this quick. I have been sneezing all day, and it’s so annoying. I think I got it from a dusty alarm sensor? I don’t know. Anyway, I already drank an antihistamine, but I’m still unwell and I can’t do any work properly. It’s like I’m expelling my soul from all of the sneezing. Fuck this shit.

As for any updates here on The Dispatch, I still don’t have a header image for the previous post and also on this post. As I said, I can’t do any work properly because of my constant sneezing. I will work on that tomorrow or on Friday.

And speaking of Friday, Gratitude Log, the new blogging series on The Dispatch about being thankful, debuts this Friday, May 24, 2023, at 10pm (Philippine time).

Oh, I truly hope I become well tomorrow.

And time’s up.

10-Minute Warning XXII

So, what can I say here in under 10 minutes?

Last weekend, I mostly felt like shit, thanks to a Twitter block. Yeah, I know. It’s so shallow. But in my previous post, I expounded on what happened and how it affected me mentally (though I locked it out for everyone to see for now.) If it weren’t for my family, friends, and a then-upcoming Foo Fighters live stream at Veeps, well… let’s just say I’m super thankful for them.

Speaking of being thankful, this week I will start a new blogging series where I list down things and people I’m thankful for. It’s somehow inspired by an Instagram post by gamer, musician, and cosplayer Ashley Gosiengfiao. The new series will be called Gratitude Log.

And speaking of Foo Fighters, they have a free global live stream on Veeps that you can watch on-demand until May 25, 2023, at 3am (Philippine time). In the live stream, they revealed the legendary rock band’s new drummer Josh Freese and they played a few old songs and new songs like “Rescued”, “Under You” and “Nothing at All”. Check this link out and enjoy the show while it’s still up!

Also, I’m lazy to work on a featured header image for this post. I will upload one tomorrow.

And time’s up.
