Year: 2016

The anxieties and excitement of going away

What I truly feel each time I visit my husband abroad + the search for that perfect place to stay

The Sunday Currently, Vol. 15: The one with MIBF2016 and more

reading the first few pages of Practical Wisdom to be Happy at Work by Boris Joaquin. Although I am no longer an employee, I can still relate somehow to the stories and values the book upholds.

I think it’s high time I start making an editorial board for my blog too! listening to some of my favorite songs. Come to think of it, they all have words related to weather: Still by Hillsong United, Tuwing Umuulan by Regine Velasquez (and the Eraserheads), and Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles. LOL. thinking I really ought to upgrade my WordPress plan from personal to premium very soon. I have started getting more invitations to place ads on my site, which means more opportunities to monetize this blog. The question, however, is whether I would be able to write more often and consistently to make it all worth it. …
