I’ve been using Wordpress since 2013, and I only knew about daily prompts just now. Shame on me, I know. Then I thought, I’m gonna try and give it a shot to write daily posts using the prompts on their list. Right now, it’s 12mn my place, but since WordPress is under Eastern Time (or am I wrong) I still have a few hours left before it turns to the next day. Hooray GMT+8.

I don’t hide that I’m in a quarter-life crisis phase (I think I actually mentioned it more than I should). You see, all my life, I’ve been trying my best to organize my life. I’ve read through life hacks, bought planners, fixed my digital files in very specific folders, set goals and all sorts of stuff that’ll make you thing I have OCD. But in reality, I’m just not a great crammer – at all.

Sure, I can work under all the pressure, but I rather not. I know some people work better under certain constraints, but me, no.


Clock is continuously ticking for me. I’m not getting any younger, so I’m a lot more pressured in dealing with adulting. I’m freaked out because my life isn’t as organized as how I wanted it to be. I have no concrete plan on what to do with my everyday to achieve a certain goal that I’m also unsure of. And it scares me a lot.

And what gets me even more is the fact that everyone else in my age group seem to take things a little lightly… or at least, that’s how I see it. Even my friends are. I’m pretty sure they also think about what to do with life and all that, but they’re all seem to be doing fine without having to jot down every little detail, or follow a set of rules or steps. They’re just with the flow. And it doesn’t seem so bad.

So.. I decided, that I’m going to try my best to go for my Plan B. Where I won’t have a plan at all. Sure, I have long-term goals, but a specific process that’ll just make my head ache but don’t assure it will be is one thing I want to gradually minimize in my life.

Yep, I’m in my 20’s now. Just 20’s. And there’s so much more life is offering me so theres no reason to guard the clock nor my every step.
