When It Doesn’t Work Out

My last blog post was back in July, a few days before starting my new job. Only a few days in and I was already questioning if it was a good decision. Sure I like being able to tell other people that I work there. But it was a struggle. I was in my dream […]

Starting Over, Hitting Restart.

I’d like to believe it isn’t too late to start over. It’s not just about happiness, but about how everything works together. It’s about the right timing perhaps. I will be starting a new job in the same building where I worked six years ago. Back then, the country just had a new president. Just […]

Aligning the options

I’ve been rethinking everything. There’s been a lot of changes over the past couple of years. A lot of ideas, attempts, and falling outs in between. Deeming it too inconvenient and maybe unrealistic, I dismissed the idea of a dream career. But now, I’m rethinking it all. Maybe it’s because of him. I don’t want […]


For the past six years, I have been waiting for this opportunity. And I just missed it. I can’t believe myself. I can’t believe my lack of determination and how it was so easy for me to let it slip away. What a letdown. This is definitely not the determined and hardworking self that I […]

We Don’t Always Get To Choose

We don’t get to choose a lot things. We can’t choose when things will fall apart. When it happens, it happens. We do get to choose how to handle things. But will it make the situation any better? Will it make a difference? Will it bring back a moment, a chance, a life? All I […]

After Almost Two Years

It’s been almost two years since my last post. I kept a physical journal last year, and I guess that’s why I didn’t use this. It’s good to keep an online journal so I can look back at it in the future. Being reminded of good things can be useful sometimes. Last year, I quit […]

Unlikely Pairing

Unlikely Pairing. I really enjoy pairing Lays potato chips (original flavor) with salted caramel ice cream. A spoonful of ice cream first, followed by a piece of potato chip. Tastes and feels very balanced. Another unlikely pairing that I have tried and surprisingly liked is banana and bacon. A bacon-wrapped banana to be exact. It’s […]


We had this thing a few days ago and I surprised myself by actually being there. I never liked being in situations where people would talk about their qualifications, professional experiences, educational pedigree and such. Maybe this is because this is not my ideal field to begin with. Or maybe because I wish I had […]

Yes, Sir.

I’ve never liked my name. And I know I’ll never be fully at peace with life til I learn how to accept it. It’s a, well, normal name but it’s way too common in where I live. Plus, it reflects nothing about my personality. I’m thankful that it’s not an offensive or blatantly embarrassing name, […]

New Year, New (Blog) Direction

Hello. It’s a new year, hence, a relatively new start for this blog. As you can see, I changed the name a bit. I want to spend more time putting things into this. When I created this blog, I had no idea what to use it mainly for. My thoughts are normally, well, too abrupt […]
