For those who really, really know me...or at lease have a really fantastic memory, you would know that I have been blogging throughout my preteen years to my twenties. I utilized a platform called Xanga, a once booming network of personal blogs. This was in my opinion, truly the Tumblr before the Tumblr. I attempted … Continue reading Ending My Blog!
I was thinking about writing a recap for July. Reason being, it has been the most joyful month I've had so far this year. I revisited my parents in the Philippines since seeing them briefly back in February. This time with my little family. But as I contemplated on how to begin my blog post, … Continue reading The Last 7 Months
For someone who's hands constantly perspired while watching Free Solo, jumping out of a plane at around 10,000 feet sounds pretty ambitious. Inspired by Rachel Nguyen of That's Chic, I started writing a 29x29 list. The concept being that I would like to achieve 29 specific goals prior to my next birthday. These objectives are … Continue reading Skydive With Me

And still, I am in … Continue reading Where I’ve Been

As this weekend comes to a closure, I look back at some things that brought me joy over the past three days. And in no particular order. 1) Waking up to sunlight rather than darkness at 5ish in the morning. My favorite area in our new home is one that I wake up to, which … Continue reading Weekend Recap

Since then, we have departed from our small apartment into a cozy, but still continuously evolving space. While this entire process has actually been more chaotic than anticipated (health issues + … Continue reading Hey Internet
You would think I am being an emotional older sister by always referring to my baby brother, Joshua as my 'baby brother', but I can't help it. Prior to our most recent conversations, it had been awhile since we caught up. The last time we really sat down and spoke to each other was during … Continue reading Meet My Baby Brother
I don't think I ever dreamed of owning a home. Like, really dreamed about it and not just limit my thoughts to potential home décor to fit into whatever space I currently occupy (This is apartment #5).
