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 […]

Have you ever been in this situation where you stare at your laptop screen all day but no words come out? You want to blog but your mind just won’t function, your fingers won’t function. In other words, you feel that this is just going to be an uneventful day where you attempt to blog but fail. Sounds familiar?  You want to blog so badly, but can’t. And you’re almost going crazy from trying to figure out why. Honestly, I have the complete opposite problem. I have too many ideas, but out of practical reasons, I can’t write 3 blog […]

Freelancing was never a concept to me before. It was pretty much non-existent, to be honest. I never pictured myself being where I am now. Heck, I couldn’t even picture my future self when I was in high school, much less in college. But this is where I am now – freelancing. So I’d like to share some tidbits about freelancing with you. And you’re probably here for a good reason.  You’re looking into freelancing but you’re not sure where you’re getting yourself into.  You’re currently a freelancer and life is so hard and omg am I the only one […]

I apologize in advance if this blog post would read like a jumble of thoughts here and there because I just really want to pour my heart out and I don’t wanna care much about layout, organization, and things like that.  I’m turning 24 in a week and I don’t know how to feel about it. I never really thought I’d make it this far. No, I’m not sick. I’m not dying. I’m also not suicidal. Okay, maybe at some point in my life, I was. But not right now. So yeah, I didn’t really think I’d make it this […]

Did some adulting today. Along the way, I gathered some.. observations. I’ve never done this before. I mean, I’ve never really just typed whatever is in my head and allowed you to read them. Of course not.  I may say I do, but that’s not always the case. Often, before I write a blog content, I curate it in my head and have some sort of flow before I start typing. So while I type, I already have a “result picture” in my head. I can already visualize what it should look like before I hit the publish button. This […]

IMAGE SOURCE Yesterday, I went out with my family and we saw this new local movie Can’t Help Falling In Love starring Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla. I appreciated the movie because I’m a huge fan of Daniel Padilla both as an actor and as an individual, and I knew the plot would be quirky, which is something I could use right now. This is not a movie review, but more of a compilation of my observations of the movie and the lessons I learned while watching.  I’m just going to do this on a whim to lay my cards […]

A few days ago, Da Dominguez of The Diary Queen wrote a blog post that really caught my attention. I read it as soon as I could because I was curious on what she had to say.  Basically, her blog post was about some things us bloggers are probably tired of hearing. And I couldn’t agree more with everything that she said. While I may not have a lot of readers as I would prefer, I sometimes get mocked for blogging, and I don’t get why? It’s just my hobby turned into a passion project. It’s like mocking someone who […]
