I started my 2017 with the battle cry, BE BRAVE. It was also timely that Arriane Serafico of The Purposeful Creative released her Braver Goals Workbook. And because I have been following her for a few years now, joining in her free classes, purchasing her HMW notebook, listening to her podcast, I figured this workbook would be a great way to finally invest in myself as I continue to follow her advice on how to intentionally, and aggressively pursue passion projects.   In 3 words, my year 2017 defined: BRAVER + Intentional + Breakthrough There are so many things I…

On one of my previous entries, I shared about the music video that I had to do for my ICT class during the 1st semester. I thought that that was the only time I had to do a video project for school, but, I guess not. In my Natural Science class, we went on a field trip to a marine protected area where mangroves thrive. This marine protected area is located in Barangay Tubajon, Laguindingan, Misamis Oriental. It’s more or less a 45-minute drive from the city proper. As a project for this class, we had to do a short…

Since it will be Christmas 8 days from now, I’ve been catching myself window shopping a lot more than usual for potential gifts for myself. Hahaha! It’s more like adding more items to my mental wishlist, really. Mental because I haven’t really put them down into writing, until now. This is a mix of things that I’ve been mulling about on getting for myself or to suggest to my loved ones if ever they may be looking into getting a gift for me, hahahaha! *cough*boyfriend*cough* LMAO Anyway, here’s my not-very comprehensive list for now. I’ll probably be updating this every now…

Last semester, I had to take one ICT subject. To some, that’s your basic computer class in college. Now, you’d think that I don’t have to take this class anymore because of my 2 years in Computer Science back in Xavier University, and 1 Web App subject taken back in Lourdes College, plus, they even credited it in Silliman University! But noo, they still made me take this subject because the course description is not the same. Ugh. It’s all the same. So, anyway, for the first half of the semester, we had to create a music video. It was exciting…

The year is almost over and I have been negligent of this blog and the commitments I made the past quarter. Plus, I’ve taken an indefinite leave of absence here. So today, I’ll catch you up a bit on everything that’s been happening and what to expect from here on out. Going AWOL For the 3rd quarter of this year, I committed to creating content for this blog. I made one, and that was it. I never got to follow through with the other content ideas that I planned, until such time that I got completely busy preparing for a…

As I settle comfortably in this new-ish co-working space in the city, I browsed through my Twitter feed and just updated myself with the recent happenings in the lives of the people I follow there. As I went further down my feed, a name suddenly popped into my head and I typed it in the search bar. Her Twitter name popped and I clicked it, revealing her feed; a mix of recent books read and reviewed on Goodreads, a few links here and there, including her blog entries from months ago, and some thoughts on the people she used to…

It’s been a while since I last published an actual blog entry here. It’s the last month of this quarter and I have not been able to consistently create content here. There are reasons for that, which I’ll be talking about in another post. For now, I’m quite thankful that August is finally done. There were so many challenges for me throughout the entire month, that I feel like I’ve grown up a bit. (I sure do hope so!) Anyway, so just a recap of all my shenanigans last August: Week 1: August 1 – 5 I welcomed the month…

The Paint and Play Your Own Ukulele event last Saturday was a success! It was only last May that I was feeling bad about not being able to go to Dumaguete for their own event there. Little did I know, I would be organizing the same one here in Cagayan de Oro. I have to thank The New Susing’s Guitar for this opportunity. What I have, is just my love for the ukulele, and my passion to teach. They have provided me with an avenue, and I am most grateful for them. Here are some pictures from the event: The…

If I were to describe the first half of 2017 in 3 words, it would be: decisive, full of detours and changes. I started the year with this theme: Fight and focus towards finishing my music education. Early in the year, I planned to go back to my old major, which is Music Education, for the reason that it will allow me to finish my degree faster. But, towards summer it got difficult to do that because 1. I quit my teaching job, and 2. The schedule was not flexible. I’m in a different path right now, but still towards…
