Why my thoughts are with Brenda?

at

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been exploring Mindanao with my parents one summer at a time, or as much as we can. We always make time to travel especially during school breaks when we are all free. I remember that last minute travel decision making was the most exciting thing to do. They are the reasons why I like traveling. My parents made it look so easy. We just go with a tight budget but always ended up completely happy with our vacation.And through our trips together as a family, I met Brenda.I was…

How my blog helped me find Online Jobs (+ Easy steps on how to start a blog)

The moment I started college, I wanted to document my experiences growing up, how it’s like living miles away from home, experiencing things for the first time and everything I do as a college student. I knew that it was a new chapter of my life and documenting it will be memorable and fun.I have been keeping journals since I was 16 years old. I write every day, 365 days a year. No misses.I’m not quite sure why I like to write. I don’t like the subject English, my grammar is not good, my vocabulary…

Being Speechless in Taiwan Made Me Realize Something!

at

We started our day with a beautiful weather. Before coming to Taiwan, they said that the weather was not nice since it was raining almost everyday. But luckily, it was sunny. Too sunny though, I was happy that we visited at the right time with a good weather.We went first to Longshan Temple. This temple was founded in 1738 by Han immigrants from Fujian.There were a lot of people, but according to Paula, it was not that crowded like most of the days. I guess luck is on our side. The temple has a great architectural structure…

She is currently studying in Taiwan so we wanted to visit her.All I can say is that Taiwan is AMAZING!!I want to share with you…

Mermaid Tales: Meet Jillien – Influencing People Through Her Actions

at

Just this year, I told myself to commit to making good habits. One of these is not using straws. I know that it is bad for the environment, and it is totally useless, and obviously human beings can live without it. But half a year later, I am still struggling and failing to commit to give up plastic straw. But every time I saw my friend posts on how she did it every single day in instagram, she inspired me to strive and push myself more.My boyfriend, gave me this idea to interview her in my blog and to…

“You’re selfish”

at

“You’re selfish”A statement that we can easily throw to someone we know or we barely know.I asked myself “Why?”Why people say that, and why I say that to other people as well.Assessing myself, I think it’s because of heightened emotions and words that were just coming out of our mouth like an unstoppable train.A lot of people told me the same statement a hundred times and I always answer them with “Yes, I am.”I’m blessed that I am surrounded with people who love me, who encourage me, support me in everything…
