Happy Holidays Everyone! I do hope you are enjoying your time with your love ones this time. Before the day ends, I stared a series entitled “Celebrations”.

The series is composed of short stories revolving a certain celebration around the world. Please do check it out! Here is a blurb for my first story: Winter Warmth.

He didn’t want to go out. It was freezing, and he hated the cold.
She had the power over him, and she knew how to use it so well.

He can no longer take it. He had to tell her.
She can no longer take it. She had to tell him.

What do you think about it? If you are interested in reading it, just click the photo above 🙂
Again, thank you for reading, and have a happy holidays!

Escaping Dreamland (preview)

Standard

Hi there! A few months ago, I had this idea for a plot of a story based on my dreams, but sadly, I did not get to continue it. Anyway here is a brief introduction of the plot:

They say dreams are the window to one’s greatest fears, and forbidden wishes. But for Kyla, her dreams are not only an embodiment of her hidden desires, but a premonition of her future.
Being the president of her organization, the editor-in-chief of the campus paper, a consistent honor student, and a candidate for a position in the university council, life could not get any more perfect for Kyla. But when she is revisited by a familiar face, her mind goes off in all directions. ‘What ifs’ begin to fill her head, and the only place she can get the answers all her questions is in her dreams.
Let her story take you to a world beyond reality and back.

So tell me what you think? 🙂 Maybe I’ll post my stories here too. If I figure out how to add a new tab in wordpress. XD

Announcement: Wattpad Account

Hello dear readers! 

I have an announcement to make. I have, just recently, discovered the joys of Wattpad. My friend’s story actually got published through this website, so I got excited, and started reading and writing. This is the only account where I use SpoonfulsofConfidence as my pen name, other than this wordpress account.  

By the way, you may be wondering why my username is only ‘spoonfulsofconfidenc’. It is because they have a maximum number of characters to be used for pen names. It looks weird, I know. But, just to let you know it is still me. 

I would also take this chance to thank you for reading and taking a look at my blog. It really means so much to me to have someone listen and read my thoughts. For that, thank you. 

I wish you a Happy Holidays!

Much love,
SpoonfulsofConfidence

Just Like Before: Another offer is Made

Standard

I remember last year. It was about this time of year as well, where a friend asked me to run for the student council with him. In the end, we both ran for positions in our organization, and won.

This time, someone else invites me to join the student council yet again. Frankly, with all the problems our organization is having, I have considered running for the council. My friends and family told me go for the council position. Thinking about this offer , I may not have this opportunity again. I have already turned them down once.

Yet, I am still in a dilemma. I feel that no one is qualified to run for President in the organization next year. I want to run because I hated how things are going today. A lot of members have also told me that I am a sure win for the position, since they do not see anyone more qualified.

To add to my dilemma, I am considering applying for a scholarship abroad. Thus, holding any position may not be a very wise idea. Not to mention the fact that I am already the appointed head of our college’s registration assistants. (This is the most stress-free position I have handled so far).

Unlike last year, I have made a decision before the year ended. Now, I have not. With 11 days before the year ends, I hope to have made a decision I would not regret.

Everything has Changed

Standard

I can’t believe I haven’t updated in 2 months. For that, this may be pretty long because a lot has happened over two months. But one of my most life-changing moments happened in less than an hour.

I have been having problems with my bosses- the president, vice-president and the secretary. (And that leaves me in my committee). They have just been too selfish and self-centered. So, when the secretary couldn’t ‘suck-it-up’ anymore, he decides to send me a crappy resignation letter, and that just threw me off. The next day, I talked to them.

I told them I had to talk to them, and they agreed to meet me at the park. It was 8:30 pm. I told them everything- from how pathetic and lazy they were, to how selfish they have gotten. Most of all, I told everything to the president, how he was never the reason I stayed in the committee, and followed his orders. It was all because of the vice-president. He is the one who made sense.

It was 9:30 pm when my tears stopped falling.

After that, the secretary still talked to me. The president made some sense, but only for a short while. He is now slowly going back to his old habits. As for the vice-president, he told me, “It’s better if we do not interact anymore because I can not take that crap anymore. Have you noticed? We  (referring to the four of us) all have changed, ever since we became leaders.” (Non-verbatim of course).

Of course, I was devastated. To think I stuck up for him. He ended our last conversation with, “I know none of us (referring to the four of us) would be staying or coming back to the organization next year, so I want to leave with nothing but good memories, so I’m doing this. And I hope you would too.”

Due to the unpleasing results, it makes me wonder if I shouldn’t have done anything. Yes, I regret my actions, but again, the wise vice-president told me, “It is ok. You should not regret it. Because if it wasn’t you, someone from us, sooner or later, would have done the same. And I think it would not have been prettier.”

Indeed, everything has changed. I just hope all of this ‘change’ would be for the better.
