    8 Things You Can Miss As A Freelancer

    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.

    How PHP500 Taught Me A Valuable Lesson

    It was a hall full of people. Loud, hyper, energetic people. Excited people. Happy people.  It was dark. We were rubbing elbows with others – literally. You could see sweat starting to run down people’s neck.  We waited and waited. We chatted. We laughed. We discussed. And waited some more. Then the music started and everyone just exploded. I could say it was a good night. Well, to be fair, it was a good night.  But behind all the colors, the booming music, the screaming crowd, the mayhem, the good kind of crazy, the new friends, was a sad, frustrating, maddening story waiting to be told. So let me tell…

    Of Relationships & Marriage

    I’m writing this on a rainy Wednesday afternoon, and I’m doing so just because. Not for the views, not for the plugs, not for the exposure. I just want to write like I did before, like how it’s really supposed to be. Yesterday was Jec and I’s first anniversary as a couple – we celebrated our 1 year of being friends a month ago. It was nothing special. He didn’t visit me, didn’t bring me flowers, didn’t bring me food, didn’t surprise me in any way at all. Sure he greeted me and sang me a song, but that was about it. As I said, it was nothing special.

    10 Things To Do When You Can’t Write A Blog Post

    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…

    The Pros and Cons of Freelancing

    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 feeling this so lost and alone… You’re simply curious how…

    I’m Turning 24 In A Week & It Feels Weird

    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.

    We Live And Breathe Corruption Everyday

    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…
