Of bestfriend and the month of May. Hello, June!
We do have lots of bestfriends. I do believe that. How can you measure the level of friendship?
For this 30-day writing challenge, I will only be talking about one bestfriend.
This friend of mine had been my buddy since high school. There are those you get to feel comfortable with right away even on your first meeting. We instantly clicked - me and my bestfriend.
We were classmates for two years. I would go for sleepovers in their house back then for he can't do that in our dorm. Visitors are not allowed there unless they are family.
After high school, we haven't seen each other for a few years. Communication is not as easy as compared to now. I didn't know he was studying here in the city. Fortunately, there was one time that I attended a service in one particular church here in the city and he was there. From then on, we were constantly spending more time together until he graduated and eventually worked abroad.
I have seen how much he struggled during his college days, not even sleeping just to finish his projects and he did that a lot together with his mates. There are times I would sleep over in their apartment and some of his classmates would be there finishing their projects all night only taking short naps. They would then prepare early to go to school the next day.
He is a man with strong conviction and would stand his ground. He is a religious man and hard working. He values family and friends, trust and loyalty. Because of his character and beliefs, he may be misunderstood by some but that doesn't sway him. We even have disagreements sometimes because how stubborn he is but that is normal. Our families have become family friends as well that's why we consider each other siblings.
It's now time for May recap.
I intentionally did not post yesterday. I was tired and all I wanted to do is to relax that's why I was able to finish the series Tomorrow. That's one heavy drama because it deals with suicide and death, love, loss and a test of will but most importantly life.
When I finished doing a summary of my May activity here in read, I was surprised that I am three articles short. It means I didn't write anything for three days. I didn't write yesterday but I wonder what happened to the other two days that I was not able to write.
I have earned less last month as compared to April in terms of USD. Last April I earned more than USD200.00 with an average of about USD6.00 per article but I was more productive then as I have written 32 articles.
In May, the laziness got the best of me that's why I was not able to write more. The numbers of comments are much lower especially in the latter articles because I was not able to visit that often. Of my total earnings of USD171.44 last month, I was able to convert USD80.00 to fiat. That was my take away and the rest was distributed to those that I managed to visit daily.
I'm still thankful for you all for your support and taking time to visit me.
This May, I have earned 23 more subscribers. That's a huge jump.
Again, I am grateful for you all.
I have yet to see what are your progress reports for the month May.
Here's hoping for a better June!
