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.
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 posts in one day so I try to calm myself down. But then, this is not about me. This is about you and your problem with blogging – or the lack thereof.
So let me help you figure some things out. If you’re one of those people who want to blog but can’t, then this is for you.
Hey, guys! I hope you’re all having a lovely Monday! It’s a long weekend, so yay for another day to rest, spend time with your family or binge watch your favorite series. Two days simply ain’t enough, huh? Anyway, since I had a lovely weekend myself, I want to share another Magic Monday series with you! I know I’m kinda flooding your email notifs and social media timelines right now, but I don’t want to proceed with this week without sharing the lovely things that happened to me over the weekend.
Without further ado, 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. ✨
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…
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 far because I never pictured myself being 24.
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 one’s different, though, and I even write in Filipino in this blog post! That’s a first!
I originally posted this on my Facebook account, but I thought.. wait a minute, this is exactly what I should be posting on my blog! It is relevant to my (and our, generally) lifestyle and it contains my personal thoughts, so why not? Okay, enough of this unnecessary intro. Here we go. If you want to know how I rant in length (and in Filipino), keep reading.
