Reminder to Self: Learn Sign Language

In this vlog, I talk about a failure of communication that happened at a job fair that our agency put up. As a result of this experience, a goal that I set out to do when I was younger came rushing into my memories.

The Despair That I Don’t Want to Reach

I worry for my sanity.

As a highly-competitive person, I don’t want to feel unaccomplished. Specifically, I don’t want to get to the point where I have not attained what I set out to accomplish. It feels like I have made yet another mistake in deciding how I would “get there”. Instead of moving close to where it is, it feels like I’ve deviated from my intended path without knowing it.

I think that if I will never be accomplished in life like I have planned, I will lose it.

I worry about the time.

It feels like I’m running out of it. Worse, I’m starting to feel like I don’t have it anymore. It’s like I’ve reached the limit for what I can attain, career-wise, and that I should now be “settling in”.

The Aspirations

Are as comfortable in front of a camera as behind one? Being written about, as well as writing?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us DISCOMFORT.

Either way is fine for me, but I actually prefer to be the subject.

I am vain.

I do everything in my power to look the very best that I can. I am conscious of my face: wrinkles, wrinkle lines, pimples, pimple scars, sun spots, general scars, moles, warts, blackheads. I wage war against facial blemishes.

I am also conscious of how my body looks. I am still in the process of shedding off extra body fat in order to bring out my abs. I want to show off a well-toned and tight physique as soon as possible. To achieve this, I eat less carbohydrates; eat more fruits, veggies, and low-sugar & low-fat drinks; and incrementally increase my protein intake.

Goodbye, niche blogs!

I’ve decided to merge future blog posts from my two other blogs, Fat-Loss Odyssey and Communications Odyssey, into my main blog: Recis Dempayos. It’s getting to be a drag having to maintain three blogs at the same time. I’m just too busy these days.

Now, the reason why I started other blogs beside my main blog (I had other ones before, by the way, a poetry and a gaming blog), was to ensure that I blogged on a niche or broad topic that interests me. Take for example, Fat-Loss Odyssey. I made it to publish my thoughts and past experiences on being fat, losing the fat, and maintaining and attaining my goals for my physique. I thought it was a broad topic to include in my main blog, so I created a dedicated blog for it.

How I Think Others Perceive Me

Many of us think of our lives as boringly normal, while others live the high life. Take a step back, and take a look at your life as an outsider might. Now, tell us at least six unique, exciting, or just plain odd things about yourself.

There’s the saying that goes, “Tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are.” As such, the following perceptions of who I am, apart from how I perceive myself, are based on how I think my friends perceive who am I. Confusing? It’s the application of empathy for the purpose of  self-discovery and affirmation, though not completely accurate. 🙂

Ergo, Recis Dempayos is:
