Sunday Currently Series

READING: The book called PresenceBRINGING YOUR BOLDEST SELF TO YOUR BIGGEST CHALLENGES by Amy Cuddy. She is a TED speaker. I really like this book and I recommend it. It has helped me on how to carry myself better.

WRITING: drafts for my upcoming post. It’s gonna be a good one. Hehe. I am actually writing it down on my Moleskin notebook which I have not touched in a really long time. I will then type it and publish it sometime this week.

LISTENING: to Musicbed.com’s Holiday playlist. “It’s Christmas Time (Ba ba) by Quinn Erwin is on repeat right now.

THINKING: of buying a new camera. Thinking of saving up for a new camera. Thinking of the ways on how I could save up for the new camera

WISHING: everyone a Merry Christmas. Or in some parts of the world, I hope everyone had a wonderful time and never forget the meaning of Christmas.

PRAYING: for myself. Haha! Oh man do I need lots of prayers. I feel like I’m going through this alone… Please include me in your prayers. I greatly appreciate it.

WANTING: to go on a vacation. I’m supposed to go to Europe in February, but I currently have no vacation hours so I do not know if I’d be able to go. Vacation is actually a NEED. I am in need of a some time alone. Somewhere.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! 🙂

In Christ, Isha

Last year.

a gift from Ralph


I turned 29 on thursday, April 14th. This is the last year of my 20s. I still cant believe I am a year away from turning the big 3-0. Wow. Haha!

My celebration was very simple and I had a great time. I spent my birthday with my parents. They gave me a lot of gifts. Its fun being the only child. Hahaha! We went bowling and had pizza after. I asked if we could have ice cream and they delightfully granted my wish.;) I actually ended the night with buffalo wings and a drink. Thank you to my coworker who took me out. 

I was reading my journal (last year’s birthday) and it was not a good celebration. I was emotinally distress and was panic-stricken. I wasnt making any sense to my family and friends. They didnt understand me no matter how hard I tell them: “sorry for being aloof”. I lost a few people. I felt abandoned. Maybe I didnt try hard enough to explain myself or maybe they didnt want to listen to whatever I had to say. The months after were more intense. There was confusion. Some confrontation and accusations. I was in deep shock. Then I felt betrayed. But reading that awful part of my journal made me feel thankful. I know I was at fault. I realized how things have changed between April 2015 and April 2016. All I can really do is trust God. Maybe losing a few people is His plan. Doesn’t He rule over my relationships? I trust His wisdom. As I was telling you about my birthday celebration this year, I chose to stay home because I have the best friends in my parents. They wont abandon me. The fact of the matter is I am adopted. Accepted. On that day of April 14, 1987, a pastor and his wife gave me a home. God gave me a family through them. 

To my bioloigcal parents and siblings: 

Wherever you are I pray that you are all well. I am safe in the arms of the two loving people I call Mom and Dad. They accepted me into their family and I am deeply loved. They introduced me to Love. His name is Jesus. I hope and pray that you know Him too. I understand if you had to give me up for adoption. It is for my well being you said. But I thank you. No feelings of hatred. I pray for you all. My prayer to God is for us to meet. Hope.

Much love, Isha

The Sunday Currently //10

Swatch watch is a Christmas gift from a very good friend. Thank you, Rhea! I love it! 🙂

READING the first book of the Lunar Chronicles series. I wanted to know what the hype is all about. I started reading the sample two weeks ago and finished it the same day. I liked it. The author is a big JRR Tolkien fan. It wasn’t a priority to buy the books even though I’d wanted my hands on them. I was putting aside some money for it. I had mentioned it to Ralph because he’s a bookworm too. I thought maybe he’d enjoy them. 

A package came the day before Christmas. Ralph had gotten me the recently released Lunar Chronicles book – book four: Winter (based on Snow White). I was so happy. I got teary eyed. Hahaha! Today, the rest of the books came -Cinder (loosely based on Cinderella), Scarlet (Little Red Riding hood), and Cress (Rapunzel). I hope they make a movie adaption. He also sent me art tools. I love this man. He knows the way to my heart. Thank you, Ralph. 🙂

WRITING I’m still working on a post about long distance relationship. I didn’t think it would take a lot of drafting. It’s getting there. 

LISTENING to a commentator. I believe he’s a detective. Forensic Files is on. It’s a favorite show of my dad and I. Bonding time.

THINKING how fleeting life is. I just learned about the passing of my friend’s dad. 

SMELLING the aroma of Snowy Pine candle. Rhea had given my parents gifts as well. Smells so good!!!

WISHING that I wasn’t a victim of fraud! I smell something fishy..

HOPING to be able to get into the classes I need for the Spring semester.

WEARING a maroon tank top and pjs.

 LOVING the books I received from my parents and Ralph. I had a four day weekend so that was very nice too.

WANTING to get into the game. I’ve been lazy. No fun. 

NEEDING discipline and determination. 

FEELING content. I had a merry Christmas with my mom and dad.

Have a great week ahead!
