I have so many feelings right now and yet I want to have none. 

I don’t find my thoughts deserving of either a 280-character tweet or intentional publication on my social media accounts so I’m writing a blog post instead. Because this is non-disruptive media and you don’t really need to read this. But if you already are, then.. hello.

Many times, I would start the day with a frown on my face and simply not be ready to work. Sometimes I would just feel so down and demotivated, and it would take me forever (sometimes the entire day) to pick myself up and actually do something productive on my laptop. Truth be told, freelancing is not that glamorous and fun like some people make it out to be (#coffeefix #workbythebeach #quickhangout, etc), and along the way, like with other jobs, you miss some things as a freelancer. After all, you can’t have the best of both worlds. Here’s what I personally miss and things you can miss as a freelancer.

It’s already the middle of September and I’m still in denial. I looked at my bullet journal this morning and saw “11” staring back at me. I was kind of taken a back. I was surprised. 11? As in it’s already September 11? I couldn’t believe it. 2 weeks left until October, then November’s gonna roll in. Then it’s Christmas time, then a new year all over again. I know I complain about the days being long, but I didn’t see this year rolling in this fast.

I’ve been missing in action on my blog lately (I know, despite the bombard of notifications in your inbox, I can personally feel my own absence). I started from my Twitter, then it crawled to my blog. As much as I wanted to blog randomly, I let my buzzing thoughts slide off my back. I just didn’t want to bother. But since I had an eventful week, I’m gonna go ahead and do a Magic Monday – also to encourage you all to carry over the long weekend vibe to this week.

I’m not particularly excited for Monday, but it’s still a chance for new opportunities, right?

Welcome to Magic Monday, a blog series where we list all things nice and worth looking forward to for the week. This blog series aims to uplift dazed spirits, especially on a Monday morning – a friendly reminder that not all Mondays should be hectic and that it can bring a little magic to your week if you let it. ✨

Hey, guys. It’s Monday again but a holiday (Ninoy Aquino Day), so I’m pretty sure most of you are relishing in the long weekend and staying in or doing productive things that you can’t do on a weekend or on a normal working Monday. I’m writing this as I’m watching Game of Thrones, so let’s keep this short!

Over the years that I have been existing, I never had a complete (or decent) skincare routine. I always found a way to be inconsistent or to forget about it. But Korean skincare was so much a trend that, one day, I just found myself having so many steps to follow and half of the time, I didn’t know what was for. 

Over the previous months, I’ve been getting compliments on my skin. It started with my mom telling me my face has been brightening up, followed by compliments from relatives I haven’t seen in a while. They even as so much ogled at my face and wondered how the dark spots disappeared – while I was completely clueless of these improvements. For me, my face was the same old pimply face I had since time immemorial.
