“No evil dooms us hopelessly except the evil we love, and desire to continue in, and make no effort to escape from.” – George Eliot.
What’s shaking? As for me, I think I haven’t wrapped my mind around everything that is happening lately.
I’ve always given fucks about the Philippines. I was hopeful that the 2022 elections would provide some light at the end of the tunnel. I was optimistic about it. But as soon as the voting schedule closed, my heart started to sink. How desperate, pathetic, and cruel! Then, I figured that the system was, indeed, corrupt to the core. It’s hopeless, so I swore I would give less and less fucks about the Philippines and the people who would need help but voted these sore winners in. I honestly miss being apathetic, and now is the perfect time for that.
I thoroughly cleaned my social media by unfriending and unfollowing a few people with whom I don’t share the same values and principles. It’s liberating to keep my small circle of friends even smaller. I don’t regret it one bit. I also muted some keywords on Twitter that will just give me anxiety. As I said, zero fucks.
I’m already at the stage where friends of the same age are getting married and having kids. Thus, my parents and society are pressuring me and asking me when I will get married, like what’s the rush, guys? I’m still young (says me), and I’ve never felt this limitless and confident about myself. Also, with all the stories I hear about separation, annulment, guys cheating on their wives only after a few months of being married, and guys lying forever to their wives so they can cheat, I don’t think I will be ever ready for that kind of hell hole.
Okuuur, instead of wasting my time doomscrolling and cursing people who voted for you-know-who, I decided to be more productive by learning ~French~. Oui, j’étudie le français! It is so hard! But there is never a thing I started that I don’t finish; well, except for singing songs that I can’t reach some of its high notes.
That is all for now. Au revoir!
