Rem, my friend from the college publication told me yesterday that he has visited my blog after a long while and after reading my posts, he concluded that I was really getting busy and preoccupied by work – of course this was on a sour note.
I could not agree more. In fact, my blog hopping has suffered tremendously because of the heightened stress brought to me by work. I thought I am scattered and my usually composed self is loosing its grip. It may be because of the new environment and new terms I am still adjusting to at work but all in all, it has been ugly. LOL.
That’s why I decided I needed to collect myself and slow down. The method to which I would do this, I’ve decided, is through making paper cranes. Yep, that is my project these days – each time I would feel hyper, stressed, overwhelmed or whatever it may be, I will do paper cranes.
Bekaru, my other friend from the college publication, told me how to fold them yesterday. My target is to fold 1,000 paper cranes before the semester ends sometime in October. Since last night, I have folded 31. Actually, two were donated paper cranes, from my Man and piapot. If you want to donate too, just let me know and I will send you my address so I could have them.
To be honest, this paper crane project means a lot to me, and I am predicting that I will learn a whole lot of things about myself and what is going on around me just by making them.
It may sound silly but I believe folding them, one paper crane at a time, might just be the secret to my success.
