The day I turned 39, I had my first Quarantine Birthday. Celebrated with a huge mocha cake from Hizon's. I forgot, though, what we ate for lunch and dinner. Ha ha! It was also an Easter Sunday. And then, I realized something. I was so close to becoming 40! (°0°) ->this is my shocked face Changes due to aging? That year, I thought I was doing okay while I was sheltering in place. I neither got Covid nor the flu (which I did almost every year because of my weak immune system), and I was … [Read more...]
Not Invisible: A Memoir by Frances Amper Sales, Cymplified!
It felt like it's been so long since I did a book review. Now that the BookLook Bloggers review program was canceled, my book reviews were not that consistent. Even though I read books, I only ever write about the ones that I can relate to or that left a deep impression on my soul. Be they five stars or not. I wanted to do a review of Not Invisible: A Memoir by Frances Amper Sales, because I like the way she writes in her blog. Her stories about her mama and her family are my favorites.I have … [Read more...]
Miss Ceemee and Shopback, Cymplified!
I believe that there is an Alternate Reality (or many) and that somewhere in that/those parallel universe/s is another version of me.

She is, needless to say, still a Miss Ceemee... And Shopback is one of her friends. I imagine she's living by herself at the age of almost 40. A night in the life of The sun dips on the … [Read more...]
(un)Happy Valentine’s Day, Cymplified!
For some, this past February 14 is an (un)happy Valentine’s day. It has become rather commercialized and a chance for establishments to sell love-themed things at a higher price. These people find the posts of flowers or chocolates or dates somehow cloying. It reminds others of their states, whether by choice or not. Aloneness, loneliness, rejection, loveless. For some, aside from having heart-shaped or red-colored things, they also celebrate anniversaries or birthdays. Can't feel the … [Read more...]
Steps Forward, Cymplified!
Hello, friends! And hi, 2021! Peek-a-boo! Surprise! From a filtered Cym. ;-) Greetings 26 days into 2021. We've made it to another year. We have made it a thousand and more steps forward. It's not without blood, sweat, or tears, though. Literally and figuratively. As it was a uniquely challenging year when lives were lost and marriages were tested. Anxiety was through the roof.

Changes are Staying, Cymplified!
This pandemic is asking, nay, forcing us to change. When our health is at stake, we can do nothing but go along with these changes. And these changes are staying for sure. Because of CoViD-19, changes are happening in different aspects of our lives. We pay our bills online. Businesses are moving online and are reliant on delivery services.Food and other household needs are being delivered to avoid going out. It's scary to dine out, too. So, we wouldn't need to wear that thigh shaper yet, … [Read more...]
