It has been two and a half months since the last time I have penned a post here. It has been rough time coming back to writing and posting things after my break-up. To be honest not a day that goes by where my heart is not longing for my ex-bf. To be with him … Continue reading Feeling lost. Find me.
Ever since my break-up this past weekend, my optimistic self is somehow faced with very depressing thoughts. I would not say like I would end my life, but it just feels that way. God is putting me on silence and I'm more heart broken about it too. My motivation to wake up and to see … Continue reading I don’t know.
In this season of my life, I have something big to look forward to—my first year anniversary with my boyfriend. It has been a journey and I’m looking forward to the present and to our future together as a couple. This whole year has been such a blessing to both of us. And I’m thankful … Continue reading (NO) Future
It’s been tough for me this past month. Partially because studying for my classes is not easy. Life and work stress are putting extra pressure on my shoulders and I don’t know what to do but to vent here. It is challenging to excel in my studies when my study skills are rusty since it … Continue reading Struggling to excel. Living with ADHD
A lot of people would say doing an online program is easy—and I used to be one of those people. To be honest--it is harder than I thought and I'm only on my first month of this program. Online program, in a sense, is easy because everything is done online, duh, and it is self-phase; … Continue reading SOS
Today, I have finalized my move out of my apartment. It has been a process these past few days, and I’m glad to be done with it. Thank, God. I am glad that I have not accumulated so many things during my one year of stay in that apartment, if I did—it would have taken … Continue reading Moving on and I’m feeling lucky
I feel blessed, re-energized after this weekend’s trip in Austin. Ever since I came back from my Europe trip earlier this month—I felt low and unmotivated to go back to work. Or do anything productive. Or just the whole idea of adult-ing. Once you get used to the vacation feeling, it is extra hard to … Continue reading What I think of Lake Travis
I have been going through a rough time lately. My motivation to do something fun and productive is long gone after my cancelled class/program this month due to my work schedule conflict with one of my class for my master’s program. This bruised my heart—slightly. I was disappointed that my work could not move my … Continue reading Be the change.
It has been a while since the last time I wrote and posted a blog. I have been busy with the whole adult-ing life. I have so many things to write and to share with everybody, but I don’t know where to start. My recent trip from Europe was full of memories, fun, eating, pictures, … Continue reading Helsinki (Part 1)
I’ve been thinking about my future lately. Last summer, I declared my 26th year as a year of travel. I followed through it and I made it happen. Not only, I travelled domestically—Kansas City and NYC—but also internationally—Paris, London and Sevilla. I cherished the memories that I have gained from all those cities! Traveling bring … Continue reading To travel is to live
I have been sick since this past Saturday. I hate being sick. I hate being my own patient because I'm the worse nurse to myself. It's not good to be sick because I overthink of anything and everything--worst scenario for someone like me who is almost neurotic. Being alone has its pros and cons. I … Continue reading Dreams and Struggles
What a weekend ! This past weekend has been busy with work and family.

I am no stranger to thinking self-defeating thoughts to lower my self-value and self-esteem. Lately, ever since I chanced upon my boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend last week on a concert that we all attended by chance—I have felt really low of myself—overthinking, feeling of sadness and helplessness took over. I was helpless? I blamed her presence to … Continue reading Raw and self-sabotaging thoughts
Filing for taxes is a pain in the butt for me. I have been filing my taxes in three-consecutive years. Each year, its another obstacle that I have to surpass to send my taxes, correctly. I am scared that one day IRS will get my butt for tax evasion. I know I need this done, … Continue reading Taxes. I’m doomed!
My boyfriend and I attended a concert last night. Another "date night." We--or, should I say him--have been planning it for a week. So you can imagine how excited we were! It was a beautiful night and enjoyed listening to the '80s synth wave. I never heard such a genre until last night (pardon my … Continue reading What happened last night
Moving into an apartment is always a big change for me. From living dependently and in a strict household to living the independent life by myself with no rules! Living the life I envisioned. The sense of freedom. All other possibilities are limitless when you are living alone away from strict parents and curfew. Its … Continue reading In recent events…
Have you ever dated someone before and all you can think of is to build your future with them? I’ve been thinking of a lot of things—one of them is marriage.

Today, I started my morning early—tidying up the bedroom and kitchen and went to the grocery store to stock up the fridge before I leave out of town. I had to make sure, my … Continue reading Welcome to the Countryside~
What do you look forward to on your day off? For me, I looked forward to being able to sleep in on my day off, especially the first one. I’m exhausted from work.

Today is another blessed day. It seem like I always start my blog with something along the line of having a “blessed day.” Every day, every time I wake up, I feel blessed by the Lord and I love sharing it here. You might think I’m exaggerating for sharing it here—it is my personal blog, … Continue reading Be happy. Living with Positivity
Today was such a fun day. It is my second day off in a row. I promised my grandma that I was going to take her on a road trip to Austin, TX. To be honest, I was really lazy when I woke up this morning. I could have easily tell my grandma that I … Continue reading Day Trip. Spring is here!
Last night I attended Luke Combs's rodeo concert. The first rodeo concert of the year. All thanks to my beautiful best friend for surprising me with his concert tickets! It was a good treat after working 2 busy days at work. And it was a good excuse to use to have a ‘social life.’ All … Continue reading First Rodeo of 2019
What do I love about Paris? I can’t phantom where to begin. This city is full of life, culture, values, cuisine, architecture and people that I love. It was liberating to visit this beautiful city. I have learned so many things during this visit. I’ll first pen down my struggle through what I call the … Continue reading Cruising through the Parisian jungle~!
These past few weeks has been really busy with work. I was working overtime after overtime; lacking in sleep , wasting my only day off in front of a tv and watching shows, or spending most of my days lounging at a coffee shop with a cup or two of coffee. When. I feel like … Continue reading What matters in life?
New York, you were memorable. One pinned down for the memories to tell to my future children and grand-children. I will come back again this April when the weather is better. It was definitely a one of a kind of a city in the U.S. I left a piece of my heart in that city. … Continue reading New York, I love you.

Let me start my blog with a quote from my favorite author Maya Angelou, an acclaimed American poet, storyteller, activist, and autobiographer. Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope. It was no easy feat to come around, to fully accept the love that … Continue reading Past and Future

This is my first Christmas tree that I bought for my apartment. I was supposed to buy a huge tree but I opted for a smaller tree. However, I already bought the ornaments like that (shown above) so it looked a little tacky, but I love my tree anyways! It's simple and it represents Christ-mas … Continue reading Christmas Tree
To be honest, I started doing this blog to help with my mental health. It's easier to write my thoughts on a blank page than to tell someone about my problems. I find it fascinating that it actually helps lower my stress and lessen the intensity of my problems. Not that my problem goes away … Continue reading Writing has a strange notion to me.
