The Promise of Next Year

Autumn

X-Horizon

Three years – that’s the time it has been since I last posted on this blog. If anything, I never thought that I’ll be posting here again; yet, lo and behold, here I am scribbling for words to write anew. I’m not entirely sure why I stopped posting (procrastination and laziness, probably), but something is urging me to continue whatever I left off. Maybe I just missed sharing my ideas; maybe it’s myself telling me to develop my writing career; or maybe it’s the promise of next year.

Many things have happened in the past, but not much that counts. 2016, for example, has been awfully quiet for me despite the terrible news the year brought. Celebrities have been dying here and there, and I couldn’t care less as I stayed home doing the things I always have.

Next year is different though, or at least that’s what I tell to myself. I might have said the same thing last year, but surely one year is different from the last. New years mean another chapter in our life, and I look forward to flipping those pages one by one. So, here’s a new post to embrace the new year that is to come.

fear god atheist

God-fearing — I’ve heard the term too many times, and I don’t like it. It’s a word that people use to describe those who fear their oh-so-loving-god. Did you see what I don’t like there? Fear of a loving god. I mean, why the hell  would you be scared of someone or something that is supposed to be all-loving? That’s one irrational fear equivalent of a phobia. Maybe we should call it Jesusophobia. Yeah, let’s just call it that. (Actually, there’s already what we call theophobia, but Jesusophobia sounds so much cooler, so let’s just stick with that.)

The sky was dark yet so beautiful. The rain started to fall. Countless raindrops met my body as I tried to dance while  ignoring the piercing cold. I looked above the gloomy sky and wished for the warm sun to come. I closed my eyes  as the cold embraced all of my body. Read the rest of this entry »

Oh, look! It’s Valentines—bitter singles’ most dreaded day. On the bright side, it’s also S.A.D., as in Singles Awareness Day. It’s a holiday to celebrate one’s life of being an independent individual, romantically speaking. Read the rest of this entry »

feminism_definition

Ever since I realized that I’m a feminist, I spend a lot of time going all over the internet to see the views of non-feminists or anti-feminists on feminism. I was hoping to read positive responses and approval from both sexes. After all, isn’t feminism promoting equality in both genders? Read the rest of this entry »
