“Have you ever been so.. lost? Known the way and still so lost?”
Disclaimer: I’m okay. I just got these lines stuck in my head after my sister played Katy Perry songs earlier. We are going to Katy’s Prismatic World Tour here in PH this May, and we just have to review her songs and practice our reactions.
Anyway, I’ve been a bum today after spending hours babysitting my nephew Cyrus. My big sister lent me their hard drive with hundreds of movies and series to copy. After watching three movies today — one of which I wasn’t able to finish — I’ve decided to do some crazy stuff. Not crazy crazy, but just some brave woman thing.
I will put up a fund for a solo travel this year. Yup. Solo travel. This year, or the next. Any time in the future, as long as it’s solo. I just want to discover things by myself.. no, I actually want to discover if I can really do it by myself. I have lots of questions and insecurities in my life right now that I want to get rid off. And I think I could use some ‘me time.’
Where to? Top of mind, Batanes. Davao. General Santos City. somewhere that is far but not really. I want to still come home of course. I’m not running away from anything or anyone, I just want to chase myself. Tell me, is this a normal quarter-life thing?
And yes, I’m half way through the movie Eat Pray Love. Yep, just now.
Have you gone on a solo travel? How was it? Was it worth it?
PS. Btw, I’ve decided not to share my posts in this blog on Facebook to “promote” it. I realized I don’t want to force people to read what I write. I just want to write again, and just be read by chance. I’d rather receive comments like “Hey, I stumbled on your blog and I think this and that” than to wait for people to ‘like’ the link I posted, and feel bad when I receive less than 20 likes. I don’t want to be miserable, like Chloe, Emilia, or Liz.
I just want to write for the love of writing, and not for the sake of being read. Just for once.
Get a journal, right? Nope, I want it in here. Here in this living and breathing space called the Internet. My handwriting gets weirder every time. And I’m friends with the delete button.
PPS. Did you know that Eat Pray Love star Julia Roberts and I share the same birthday? Yup. And I’ve always loved the name ‘Julia.’
