I’ve been catching up on reading lately. In line with that, I’d like to share some of these wonderful articles I across online. In case you don’t have it in your phones and computers yet, I suggest that you get the Pocket app. It’s really useful for reading articles on the go. It’s especially helpful for me because I don’t have data on my phone. Since I save articles on my Pocket app all the time, I have something to read in case I get bored when I’m out.

You can also use this app to bookmark articles that you want to read later, not necessarily when you’re going offline. I also think that it’s better to be online when reading on Pocket since you would get to see the images and actual web page layout, something that lacks in the offline option.

Anyway, here are some articles I favorited:

I happen to believe that we are all walking repositories of buried treasure. I believe this is one of the oldest and most generous tricks the universe plays on us human beings, both for its own amusement and for ours: The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them. The hunt to uncover those jewels – that’s creative living. The often surprising results of that hunt – that’s what I call Big Magic.

It constantly amazes me where avid readers get the energy to write a book review in a manner that they can relate the events to their own life journey. The fact that you can finish an entire book for a review is amazing enough for me. However, after so much contemplation on this particular book, I finally got myself a copy (and the last one in the bookstore, at that!) and truly, I can say, how epic it is for some hundreds-page book to impact my life so much.

I’m talking about Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear.

Ahh, Friday.

Once upon a time, there was this girl who promised herself to let nothing in but good vibes every Friday of every week. That would be me. But guess who’s feeling down in the dumps at the moment? That would also be me.

I’ve been meaning to write a blog post on my 23rd birthday, which my family and I celebrated in a lovely resort, but I couldn’t find the time to sit down, edit the photos, and pull a long, photo-heavy blog post for you. But don’t worry, it will be worth the wait! All I can say is that the place is amazing and every corner is Instagram-worthy. That alone should get you excited!

For now, I’m dumping these online articles I find really compelling. I am a voracious reader. If I’m not slaving away with articles, I’m reading some on my various social media platforms. I’m particularly fond of Twitter at the moment because I find people I follow leaving a lot of helpful and relatable articles and I could just read them on a whim while working. (Oh, and I’m doing this in between work because we all need a break, right? Just don’t tell my boss, okay?)
