7 facts about me

  1. Two months ago, as I was strolling in the mall by myself on a hectic Saturday afternoon, I bumped into a volunteer who introduced me to Save The Children, an organisation that promotes nutrition and education for children in the rural areas in the Philippines. I learned that she is also an FEU alumna and also writes on Tumblr. Sadly, I wasn’t able to get her contact number, I don’t know her full name, and she wouldn’t give me her Tumblr URL (probably for personal reasons), but I would love to get in touch with her again. But the good thing is: I am now a monthly donor for Save The Children and I feel happy that every month, I am able to provide a child’s need, even in the smallest way that I can.
  2. I’m a better communicator on the laptop than on the phone. On the mobile phone, I can give one-liners and late replies, that it, if you even get a reply. On the other hand, if I’m using my laptop, I can answer a simple question with one entire paragraph and I type fast on the keyboard, that is, if I don’t get lost in all the tabs I open whenever I’m online. You get the idea.
  3. I have sponsored a child on World Vision recently. A few days ago, I was feeling antsy. I was being drowned in this overwhelming desire to buy impulsively online. I’m currently on a shopping ban and it should be enough reason to stop me from browsing online stores while working. But my craving just intensified by the hour. I was also very emotional that time and I needed an outlet. I opened my e-mail and found an e-mail from World Vision. I made a bold move to sponsor a kid. I will be receiving my Welcome Kit in a few days. 🙂
  4. Most of the time, people regard me as a snob, but I can be the most selfless person if I want to be. There are times that I would get out of my way to help someone (mostly they end up unappreciated), but there would also be days that I couldn’t care less because I already have problems of my own and they are already a load to handle.
  5. I am a voracious reader. I love everything and anything that can help me read better and feed me knowledge. My pocket app is bombarded with at least, at least, 50 articles, I read whenever I have time, e.g. looking up articles while cooking, reading articles during break from work, listing down books I want to read in the future, etc, I follow a lot of ~intellectual~ accounts on my social media platforms as well so I would have something nice to read even when I’m just scrolling past photos and statuses. I like sensible stuff, you know?
  6. I quit my corporate job to find my passion. I didn’t know I have already been doing it for years – writing.
  7. For something about my blog: albeit finding myself torn in between my indecisive thoughts on purchasing a domain name or not, I have decided months ago not to buy a name for my blog for the sole purpose that I have no intention of using it for a career, to make extra cash, or to simply be known for having my own blog. Now things are slowly changing my mind because 1) Ever since I put up a tracking app on my blog, I noticed that people actually do visit my blog and read my posts. 2) It won’t hurt to establish a better online presence. I guess my readers have no way of commenting on my posts even if they want to because I have no comment box and only tumblr users can leave comments. Shame. 🙁 That would be my next project soon, though! A comment box + my own domain name.

Now, these people might have already be nominated, and I’m pretty sure some of them have already done their entries, but I’m still giving it a shot, to also tell them I appreciate them and their blogs and I’m an avid reader. Cheers! ?✨
