Wow, it’s only the 3rd month of the year but so much has happened. As you probably know by now our President in the Philippines has placed the entire Luzon on an “enhanced community quarantine” due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus / COVID-19. I work in Manila and I left yesterday in the afternoon before they completely stopped bus operations. I already had a weird feeling in my stomach that morning, I guess was the anxiety and just the overflowing thought in my mind about what could happen. I’m an overthinker and most of the time it drives me insane. Anyway, thankfully my bosses let me go home early and I left straight away, booked a grab (I thought I wasn’t going to book one!), and I was on my way to the bus terminal. Turns out I had booked the wrong terminal, my drop off location was on the South bound when I should’ve been in the North bound. Nevertheless, I hurried my way across the foot bridge and when I got to the Victory Liner Terminal, where I normally take a bus home to Pampanga, it was completely closed, no buses and no personnel at all. I started freaking out some more but I rushed to the next bus station, Genesis. When I arrived, I was able to take a deep breath.
Donate Hair Philippines | UPDATED AS OF: February 25, 2020
I’ve been wanting to donate my hair for a while now but I haven’t heard of any organizations that accept donations! After researching a bit I found out that Makati Med’s Cancer Center accepts donations. I emailed them and got the details! Then, last December I cut my hair and sent it over to them.

Ahhhhh life. I’ve been pretty busy with work the past few weeks – doing a lot of over time, trying to meet deadlines; not having much time to write new blogs and post photos buuttttt I have a few days off so yay! – combining February’s and March’s update into one – since I missed it hehe. Here’s what I’ve been up to/loving lately:
In life, people tend t wait for good things to come to them. And by waiting, they miss out. Usually, what you wish for doesn’t fall in your lap; it falls somewhere nearby, and you have to recognize it, stand up, and put in the time and work it taks to get to it. This isn’t because the universe is cruel. It’s because the universe is smart. It has its own cat-string theory and knows that we don’t appreciaate things that fall in our laps.” – Neil Strauss
Hi everyone! First life lately update for the year and I don’t have much to say. January in a nutshell was alle aout preparing; getting ready; planning. Planning for the rest of year. Figuring out what I want to accomplish, what are my goals, where I want to go, things I want to do, etc. etc. At the moment there are a few things that are already set in stone and I am really excited about them! There are also some other things that still need planning and researching but I’m crossing my fingers that they’ll push through and I can check off everything on my 2018 bucket list!

Currently drafting this on my phone, in the dark, with the fan on speed three with a pomegranate sheet mask on my face. Feeling super relaxed tonight, especially since its a long weekend (hooray for three day weekends!). It’s raining at the moment and the sound of the raindrops is quite soothing.
It’s already the middle of August and I’ve been so busy at work lately, but I still wanted to update you guys on my June and July, hehe. ☺ Thinking back to it now feels like it was so long ago and it’s so weird to think that in a few days Christmas songs will already be playing in the Philippines, plus I’ll be turning 24! Ekkk.
Ahh. Life lately has been incredibly lazy yet very productive at the same time. Weird, I know hehe. I’ve lacked the time to draft a lot of posts, but I’m making up for lost time. Drafting two today! This post plus one about our day trip in Florence (which was a year, oops). Anyway, I have been writing a lot though outside the online world, it helps to ease my mind. Sometimes I also find myself randomly doodling or writing to help keep my thoughts at bay. It’s also been quite an eventful past few weeks for the world, a lot of tragedies, a lot innocent lives lost. Praying for their souls and their grieving families and friends, I’m sure one day we’ll all find peace.
Hallllloooooo! I know I know, it’s been a while since I’ve last written a post and I say it all the time, haha! But to be really honest, lately, blogging has felt more like extra work! One of the reasons why I started this blog was because I wanted a creative outlet away from the corporate world. It’s supposed to be fun, inspiring. Most of you probably know I work full time – I’m at my work for 10 hours a day, 5 days a week – the majority of my time is spent in front of a laptop screen and the last thing I want to do when I get home is get in front of the computer again!
