Time Moves On And On

Time is money
Time is sand
Time brings all things to pass
 
As time moves forward, nothing ever stays the same.
What was once our present will drastically change
Time is never dormant.
Truly, it never is.
Hold on to its flying tailcoats
Or many things you’ll miss.
Life is like a sailboat
That one goes sailing on.
One cannot hold on to the past
But MEMORIES
They will always remain.
Although we will all grow old and grey one day,
I don’t know what else to say
BUT that it is part of the circle
The Chain
In which we live in
For all eternity, time continues on
It is all a matter of adapting to the variations
Of periods and of eras

Makin’ Moola Online

I tried this new thing out recently, after an ex-colleague of mine told me about it.

Fiverr.com

I had no idea what to expect and what the first thing I had to do on the site, so I basically winged it. Needless to say, after a day, I got the first order for my gig.

My gig, which I aptly named “I will edit your work, in terms of grammar and spelling for $5”, stemmed from the fact that that was the only thing I could think of that I could do online to earn a bit of moola without trying too hard. I just wanted to experiment with the site and it’s 5 bucks merely because the site insisted on adding it onto my gig’s title. Also, that’s sort of like the site’s thing; “provide and order services for the low price of $5” or something like that. And then, my description was:

I am willing to proofread your written pieces to the best of my abilities, in terms of grammar and spelling. I will also be able to provide a review on how well the essay reads throughout, so as to make it read even better than it already is.

My first order wasn’t even related to what I had advertised, but since it was a review on pets, I thought, “Heck, this ain’t bad.” I got two orders like that and after both orders, I promptly forgot about the site.

Just last Friday, I received an order from someone in the Netherlands late at night (time difference, no?) and I was reminded that I forgot to shut the gig down. So I did the order, but a few hiccups happened. I then realized that Fiverr just wasn’t my thing.

For some reason, my internal conscience is bothered by the fact that I am earning money online just by staying comfortably at home and doing something that doesn’t take me much effort; I just feel like I am cheating money from people. And it might be because I just have a very traditional mindset when it comes to earning money. I may have jumped onto Fiverr quickly to test it out and was excited about the prospect of earning money on the site initially, but all I know is that, despite the fact that it may seem like freedom to do whatever you want and earn money from it on the site, it just seemed constricting to me. And there is absolutely no direct contact (and what I mean by this is that I don’t get to meet them face to face) between the buyer and the seller. It just felt really unnatural to me, seeing as body language and facial expressions provide so much more information about someone, rather than just the words they choose to reveal online.

It was a good try, but I don’t think I’ll be relying too much on it for wages in the future.

Doodling The Bird

When it comes to doodling, I almost always automatically go for a bird — or a variant of it, aesthetically speaking, as seen above (I don’t quite think there are any birds who look like that in reality, unless it bred with some dinosaur…).

And because of that, I became curious about the psychology of doodling. Regarding birds.

It turns out that doodling birds usually mean that their “artist” is feeling constricted and wants to fly free. But then, it all depends on the way the bird is drawn as well.

Anyhow, I’ve put up a link on bird doodle meanings down below, just in case.

Heartfelt Hope

I feel what I feel
I feel what I say

The heart wants
The heart needs
It feels

But all this
I never believed

Blood pumped throughout each generation
For aeons of years
The heart’s importance
Oh so very true
That’s all I believed it did

The brain functions
To control
To manage
To maintain
Everything
Reliably overworked

But why this?
What is this pain?
The chest constricted
The neuromatrix?
Hyperpathia?

No
That cannot be so

I miss
I yearn
Yet I still hope

Silence
Patience
Just felt to cope

Never expected
Never before dejected
Like this

The heart wants
The heart needs
I now understand

Its wants and its needs
Those cannot be changed
But tactics

Strategies
Façades

Yes…
There is hope yet

My Writer’s Assertion

I write what I feel and I feel what I write. I write to feel my existence. I write to understand myself. I write to be me.

No matter what I do, my mind wants to write. And I will always feel it. What I write is what I feel, despite how much I try to hide what I feel — because of it, I become transparent. No point in denying that.

I am a writer, no matter where I go and what I do. I will always be, in my heart of hearts, a writer.

Architectural Study of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater

In the work above, we were instructed to pick one building out of a bunch that the professor presented to us to do a thorough study on, with regards to the architectural layout of the building. My final presentation, as such, is fully visualized as illustrated above.

In an entirely different class, the brief given to us what to pick a theme out of a couple of themes the lecturers had presented to us and create a website inspired from that chosen theme.
