Day 15: Narrate a Conversation Between You and Someone Who You Never Had Closure With?

c19dabb3960a41af9db4a0c9ac96e32a

It’s been a while since I last posted for the #30daysbloggingchallenge. In fact, it has been more than a year since my last post. It’s not that I am busy. I think it is a personal choice. The 15th topic is very daunting. Also, I would say, a year ago, I was very different. Year 2016 was such a very challenging year for me. I have to make a lot of changes with my lifestyle since moving back to the Philippines after two years of staying in Canada. I was struggling on a lot of things, one of which is finding a new job. My finances are not that stable and life is a bit hard.

Aside from that, the topic itself is what I am avoiding. I guess not having the closure that I hoped I would get from my last relationship was difficult for me. It was something that I never imagined. It was something that I never dreamed of in my relationship. Being the perfectionist that I am, not having a closure is a prick in my bubble, sending my world and high expectations crashing to the ground. It’s like opening Pandora’s box and not knowing what disaster might strike me, what goblins and mystical “feelings” might come out, and most especially, what wounds and hurts might be opened up again. It was like poking through an almost-healed wound, seeing the cut open up, and feeling the pain all over again. That is why I decided not to post this last year. I feel I am not ready yet to expose myself for the world to judge.

Day 14: Describe The Last Moment You Felt Really, Really Blissful

The last moment I feel really, really blissful.

Happy. Joy. Glad. Blissful

The are moments that were marked by extreme and incomprehensible happiness, joy, gladness, or bliss. I know they are just synonymous but I think BLISS is superlative. Being blissful is defined as being extremely happy.

We all have that moments where we are taken aback by how things turned out and we are left in awe at the magnificent power of the Supreme Being working behind us and deep inside we felt really blissful, extremely joyous, indescribably happy.

Day 13: Describe How You Met The Last Person You Texted And Talk About Your Friendship/Relationship

How I met the person I last texted (messaged) and how our friendship mean to me.

Pitching – I fondly call her brad or brader (a vernacular term coined from the word brother. We often thought of ourselves as men trapped in a woman’s body.)

I think most of us have that one friend who we constantly communicate or that person who we haven’t talk to in a long time but when you get to talk to them, its as if nothing has changed and the absence seem non-existent. She is that one friend and I would say that even if our communication is on-and-off, it doesn’t mean that our friendship works the same way too. I believe that even if there are times that we didn’t communicate, the bond is still there.

Day 12: Your Proudest Accomplishment

My proudest accomplishments.

Life is like an arena of different hurdles and challenges and we are presented with no other choice but to go through those challenges with the hope of acing them and making it to the end. Being able to surpass life’s challenges is indeed a huge accomplishment that we can really be proud of.

We all have accomplishments, however small it may seem, and at some point these accomplishments has really made us proud of ourselves. On some occasions, others may see these accomplishments as petty things, buy they mean so much to us because they have contributed in molding us into the person that we are now. For me, the greatest accomplishment that I am very proud of is setting up this blog and being able to keep up with all these posts.

Day 11: Your worst/funniest/most embarrassing date

My worst/funniest/most embarrassing date.

Going on a date is one of the most intimidating moments of one’s life. You go out with someone you barely know and you allow yourself to be scrutinized and judged. On the other hand, you take extra effort on being too nice or too pretty with the hope that this could be him, that he might be the one for you, that he may be the person you could spend the rest of your life with. Almost all of us at some points in our lives experienced being asked out on a date. I’ve never been to so many dates myself but I think I have few interesting and memorable ones that I will surely cherish for the rest of my life but for the sake of answering the topic today, I think I will be sharing with you my most epic fail date.

Day 10: Google the meaning of your name and talk about how it fits or doesn’t fit you

Google the meaning of your name and talk about how it fits or doesn’t fit you

In our country, the Philippines, babies are usually given two-word names. My mother named me Sarah Dawn for the sole reason that I am the youngest daughter in the Family and the youngest son is named Mark Don and she wanted our names to rhyme. But that was my mom’s take on naming me. Now let us take a look on what Google has for my name’s meaning.

For the name Sarah:

Hebrew Meaning: “The name Sarah is a Hebrew baby name. In Hebrew the meaning of the name Sarah is: Princess.

In the Bible, Sarah was the wife of Abraham and the mother of Isaac. Her name was originally Sarai (quarrelsome), but God commanded that her name be changed to Sarah before the birth of her son.

Biblical Meaning: The name Sarah is a Biblical baby name. In Biblical the meaning of the name Sarah is: Lady; Princess; Princess of the multitude.

American and Muslim Meaning: The name Sarah is a Muslim baby name.
In Muslim the meaning of the name Sarah is: Pure; Happy.”

Day 9: Your favorite “weird/funny single behavior” – Anything you do that is uniquely YOU and that living alone allows you to do

Your “funny/weird single behavior

We all have quirks and insane moments. We all have our own unique traits and chacteristic that make us who we are, an awesome and a beautiful creation of the Divine God who bestowed us with great abundance and bountiful blessings and opportunities.

So what is/are my funny/weird single behavior/s? Something that is uniquely me and that living on my own allows me to do. This is quite difficult because I haven’t had any chance of living on my own. Well, I live in an apartment and pay my own bills (but I still go home to my parents on long holidays and sometimes, on weekends) and I share the apartment with my single sister. So I’ve been pondering on the question for quite some time. And to be very honest, I have really some difficulty finding the answers to this topic. But I will answer this to the best way I can.
