Dimples’ Writings

Writing Again.

It feels good to write again! I’ve been on a little break due to my exams this past weekend and I got so little time to sit down in front of my laptop and just blog. It felt like a guilty pleasure at the moment. But it didn’t really stop me from thinking about Dimples on Cloud Nine, I planned tons of things for the blog: posting schedules, a logo and of course, new posts. Oh, I may have been on hiatus on WordPress but I’ve been blogging a little in my Tumblr. Drop by if you have the time! It’s a little sad because I had to create another account since my first sign up didn’t really get through the activation part… I don’t know how to explain it properly, but yeah, something like that happened.

I’m also looking forward for new projects my sister and I would do for our collab blog that you should all check too! Well, it’s nice to be back in writing, and reading other people’s blog. Just drop me a link if you’d like a clingy reader like me in your blog 😉

Words

Words gave birth to us
And once had nurtured us,
But now, words had ended you and me.
So let me bury this love
In the garden of my poetry

-J.mnlyn

Spilled Ocean

You ventured my shallow waters and loved my every shore,

Sinking affections into my ears until I kept looking for more.

The sound of my waves crashing to your every oath; engulfing each promise, looking forward and nothing more.

You sailed into my midst and saw how deep we could go,

Engraving memories so clear now I wish I didn’t know.

Overflowing with delight I could not see an end in sight; embracing your arms, loving your every warmth.

Each drop of love adding depth to my emotions; but like every other you got tired and left my horizon.

Every story, every joy, floating aimlessly within. Knowing it will stay with me as my waters are with limit.

So often,

I wish you’d visit as I fill a bottle with written feelings. Thinking how it would reach you;

So now, watch,

As I spill my ocean for you.

You Make My Day

You are my favorite sunrise;

The way your warmth gently wraps me in its arms, slowly bringing sunshine into my life.

Each waking moment you give vigor to start my day and you never forget to bring color along the way.

You paint my every sunset;

Your smile alight with rays of scarlet and toasted gold, gently turning my troubles into joy.

The quietness of the closing day harmonizing with our laughter in the air.

You light up my night sky;

The shimmer of every star is nothing compared to the galaxy humbly glimmering in your eye.

Cold breeze briskly touching the trees, steady glow veiling the sleepy sky.

The more I dwell in this embrace, the less I want to escape..

You make my every day.

Ending the Semester

As June marks the end of the first semester, I celebrate it with food, food, and lots of food! Lately I realized I have been eating and trying a lot of food and drinks and as a result, my fitness journey is suffering a little. But that’s okay, I’ll make up to it somehow.. I hope 😂

Oh, and by the way, I just made a Tumblr account and I’m still trying to get the hang of it. I’ll share it to you guys when it’s all cleaned up! 🙂

Let’s all crave our hearts out! Happy June, everyone 🙂

This is the Most Important Question of Your Life – By Johnson Kee

Something to reflect on today…

Kindness Blog

It’s not “what is the meaning of life?”

Too many people are looking for answers to the wrong questions. Say you’ve just been sacked out of the blue. You’re in a state of shock. Your mind is a whirlpool of conflicting emotions. These color your perspective and make you ask questions like:

What did I do to deserve this?

Why wasn’t Smith fired instead?

How will I provide for my family now?

You feel outraged. You feel petrified. You’re entering a tunnel that stops you from seeing what’s around you.

We all know that we can tap an inner well of power by being conscious of our reaction. It can’t hurt us if we don’t let it. Sometimes, you just need to stand your ground, brace yourself and let the negative emotions crash into you. We know that we truly can’t appreciate the sunshine without weathering the storm.

But what…

Capturing Memories

First of all, my deepest apologies for being on hiatus for about 3 months. A lot has been going on. However, I have already decided to make the most of my vacation and planned a lot as well. I may not be travelling a lot, but there’s always something worth snapping in everyday. So here are a few tips I have for capturing your precious memories for every trip.

  • Be a tourist! If you’re travelling elsewhere don’t be embarrassed with a camera on hand or hanging around your neck. Don’t mind the locals, take a picture with that beautiful view you’ve been eyeing since you got there. Get a good shot of the food you and your company are enjoying. Pose however way you want to in front of a vintage store. You don’t always have the privilege of being a tourist, might as well enjoy it!
  • Include people. Of course when travelling, you would definitely take pictures of the scenery. But don’t forget when taking photos during your trip you would want to take pictures of the people you’re with. You can do the classic group photo, or be a little more creative and take pictures of your shadows during sunset or your feet at the beach. Simply keep in mind that you want to look back at these photos as if it’s saying ‘Remember this moment? You sure had fun!’
  • Improvise. If you’re using you’re phone to take selfies, you might want to use these tricks. You can use your lovely sunnies as a stand. When it’s on a surface just place your phone in the space between the lens and the frame. If you need elevation make use of whatever is within your area, a book perhaps? or even a stack of pillows. Another trick you can do is to take pictures with your headphones. Simply connect it and press the buttons of your headphone! Saves a lot of effort for trying to press your camera button.
  • ENJOY! Don’t stress yourself too much in taking photos, keep in mind that you take photos because you are having fun and not the other way around. Though I personally enjoy snapping photos of something nice. Remember taking pictures is somehow a way of capturing the emotions you had at that moment and incorporating it to that photo as a memory.

I hope you pick up something new when reading this. I would love to hear what you have in mind when capturing your fun-filled adventures in the comments below! 🙂
