Day 101: 100 Happy Days

I got used to think about these happy thoughts before going to sleep. I have been trying to be happy for 100 days, and I made it. There were days when everything was awesome. And there were days when more often than not, I felt fucked up. 

My journey to 100 happy days was not easy. I have always set my standars high and in days like these when nothing really happened, I find it challenging to decide what to post. 

Don’t get me wrong, I have tons of things that made me happy within those numbered days, such as my out of towns, my realizations, clothes, friends, food, sex, my promotion, etc. One of the things that I learned from this exercise is to find the beauty in the ugly.

What I didn’t tell everyone is I am currently undergoing this medication where I am supposed to take this medicine in which one of its adverse effects is mild to moderate depression. I was in the same medication three years ago, and I didn’t finish it as it drove me nuts! My doctor had to always remind me that I am special and awesome and she had always given me chill pills for free. I still haven’t figured out how Isotretinoin can be sort of depressing but I think this 100 happy days shit helped me get along.

If you check their website 100happydays.com, you’ll read the claims of the people who made it. The last bullet was claims about people falling in love during the process. I’d like my whole network to know that even though I’m not in a relationship that falls under the norm and dictionary definition, I fell in love and he keeps me happy.

Falling in love. Tough to define, yet easy to do. Ironic how it’s supposed to make you feel happy, it can also be ugly. As long as put your heart on your sleeve, you’re fine. It’s just the matter of finding your perfect match. Until that day comes, be happy with what you have. Who knows? That person might be going through the same vulnerability like you, holding on to the same happiness you’re giving that person.

Tomorrow, I’ll face the challenge in trying to be happy without this guide. I’ll make sure to continue working on what this exercise has taught me. Life is short and beautiful, and it should be more and more beautiful every single day. I’m scared to fail, but I need to do this alone. 

To those who I annoyed, you can add me as a friend now or you can unmute me now. I hope you understand and I love you. To those who keep fighting for their happy days, I feel you. Good luck on your journey!

I would like to challenge anyone who reads this to try this exercise. If you succeed and didn’t feel better than how good you are today, I will slit my neck.

Cheers to happiness!

They say happiness is choice. They say you hold your destiny. In situations where we get lost and there’s no one to hold on to, I often wonder if we ever will be truly contented?

Love always,
Jp

Day 100: Team Goals

We fucked June in his ass and sucked its dick like we’re mad at it. We’re gonna be better this July. Nowhere to go but up, and I’m so excited to prove that my team is awesome.

Why am I so intrigued by this new chapter of my life? It’s sinking in and it shows while I’m just observing around, seems everyone around me has moved on and happy about everything so I guess it’s about time to embrace my liberty and solitude. Plus, I’ve been on vacation for so long, and damn it feels like I’m about to cum fuckloads of creativity. Now see me jerk off!

Love always,

Day 98: Elephants

If the elephants have past lives, yet are destined to always remember. It’s no wonder how they scream. Like you and I, they must have some temper.  And I am dreaming of them on the plains, dirtying up their beds. Watching for some kind of rain to cool their hot heads. 

And how dare that you send me that card? When I’m doing all that I can do. You are forcing me to remember when all I want is to just forget you. 

If the tiger shall protect her young, then tell me how did you slip by. All my instincts have failed me for once. I must have somehow slept the whole night. 

And I am dreaming of them with their kill, tearing it all apart. Blood dripping from their lips, and teeth sinking in to heart. 

And how dare that you say you will call? When you know I need some peace of mind. If you had to take sides with the animals, won’t you do it with one who is kind? 

If the hawks in the trees need the dead, if you’re living you don’t stand a chance. For a time, though you share the same bed, there are only two ends to this dance. 

You can flee with your wounds just in time. Or lie there as he feeds. Watching yourself ripped to shreds and laughing as you bleed. 

So for those of you falling in love, keep it kind, keep it good, keep it right. Throw yourself in the midst of danger, but keep one eye open at night.

Day 96: Get Good

Are the echoes coming back to you? Is the wisdom seeing patterns on a loom? Like a blanket around you. You were weaving colors when I saw you.

Put your velvet on the moonlight. Or have you lost your constellation eyes? Well you could give it time. I wish I could be there. I wish I could make it right.

Stone wall running hills of green. A golden, dusted dandelion scene. A powder soft serene. Oh, it’s been so long since powder soft serene.

Don’t you worry, you’ll soon be on the mend. That’s no trick, that flicker of radiance. You’ll feel lucky, I’m sure of it. You’ll figure it out… And get good again.

You said you don’t know why but you don’t feel free. You know, it’s not true but I know what you mean. I want to thank you for being so good to me. I just wanted you to know.

Are the echoes coming back to you? Is wisdom seeing pattern on a loom? Like a blanket around you? We’ll look out for each other, I’ll look out for you. We’ll look out for each other.

Day 95: Thrownback Thursday

I decided to wait for my housemate at their floor. It’s been forever since I went there. I heard their crazy coach so I peeked at the exit door. My last team before I moved out was stationed near the exit. It’s Ella’s last week, and they’re talking about team building. They immediately opened the door and stayed there. I am not allowed to get in, by the way.

What has to go wrong in someone’s life for them to end up being a failure? Life is hard.

Aaahhh… My second home… As I look around and imagined I still belong there, it breaks my heart to realize that I can never go back. I couldn’t even get in. But hey, I stole Ella’s post shift. Come to think of it, as they came closer one by one and listened to my fake post shift, I can say that I am missed.

It was nice to see them. I miss them all so much.

Love always,
Jp

Day 91: Exodus 18:18-23

"You and the people with you will certainly wear yourselves out, for the thing is too heavy for you. You are not able to do it alone. Now obey my voice; I will give you advice, and God be with you. You shall represent the people before God and bring their cases to God, and you shall warn them about the statutes and the laws, and make them know the way in which they must walk and what they must do. Moreover, look for able men from all the people, men who fear God, who are trustworthy and hate a bribe, and place such men over the people as chiefs of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties, and of tens. And let them judge the people at all times. Every great matter they shall bring to you, but any small matter they shall decide themselves. So it will be easier for you, and they will bear the burden with you."

Day 90: Office Troubles

Blergh. I just had one of the worst conversations ever with one of my officemates. I’m never the friendliest everyone wants to hang around with in the office — and I like that. I do join in on office drinks and whatnot some times, but in my current program, officemates to me aren’t supposed to be your friends — they’re there to help you out when it comes to business, but besides that, I like having a clear dichotomy of my professional life and my personal life.



Apparently, on one of my worst days, one of our managers from a different department gave me an attitude in from of my team so I had an attitude towards her, and she took it as some sort of office offense. She deserved it though, as she did the same thing to me. There’s no official reprimand for workplace mean-ness, but then again, you have to command it.

 In the office though, it’s a whole different jungle — you have a boss, and your bosses have boss. While some people work under me, I still defer to a higher authority — and that’s part of the reason why I can’t befriend work people — in as much as it is easy to let your guard down on them, they’re still your colleagues, and demand more respect than your average girl friend.



I had proper coaching and we both apologized to each other.

Lesson learned? Watch what you say — and talk to one of the trusted people only. Being too friendly doesn’t mean everybody would like to have you as a friend. And also — being angry doesn’t really solve anything — it’s just a huge waste of energy.

Anybody else go through things like this?



Today, I was proud of how I fought for my rights. Did you fight for yours today?

Love always,
Jp
