Aug 19: On the edge

We all have things as need to do to keep an even keel — blogging, exercising, reading, cooking. What’s yours? This is very timely question, because we are living in uncertain times and it’s so easy to go crazy! I go through it every now and then, and usually takes a few days before I…

Aug 18: Procrastination

What have you been putting off doing? Why? Exercising. I posted a few quarantine diaries back that I will be starting yoga again. I even pulled out my yoga mat from under the bed and cleaned it because I wanted to start doing it again. I have also downloaded an app where I can follow…

Aug 5: Ballerina, Fireman, Astronaut, Movie Star

When you were 10, what did you want to be when you grew up? What are you now? Are the two connected? I remember that whenever I get to this question on slum books when I was in grade school, I would answer “businesswoman”. I guess that was the easiest answer I could come up…

Aug 2: Origin Story

Why did you start your blog? Is that still why you blog, or has your site gone in a different direction than you’d planned? Man, this will be a long story because I have gone from blog to blog to blog to blog to blog. And I’m totally exposing myself today. LOL. I started my…

Jul 29: State of My Year

Write up a mid-year “State of My Year” post. It’s July 29th. It is my mother’s 64th birthday. And today, I will be doing a State of My Year address. This year sucks ass. It actually started out great for me. My social calendar was thriving, I was doing OTs and earning more money than…

Jul 20: There’s No Place Like Home

If you had the opportunity to live a nomadic life, traveling from place to place, would you do it? Do you need a home base? What makes a place “home” to you? Hmm, I love traveling, but honestly and this might be surprising, this is not a life I would want. People think I want…

Jul 17: Stranger in a Strange Land

What’s your favorite part about visiting a new place — the food? The architecture? The people watching? Obviously, I really like visiting and exploring new places, but I don’t think I look for anything specific when travelling. I guess, it depends on where you’re going, what the place is famous for. I don’t think you…

Jun 27: The Artist’s Eye

Is there a painting or sculpture you’re drawn to? What does it say to you? Describe the experience. (Or, if art doesn’t speak to you, tell us why.) I can only think of this. I was totally fangirling when I saw this at Pinto Museum. I love the movie-musical, “Ang Larawan” and I also watched…

Jun 24: Morality Play

Where do your morals come from — your family? Your faith? Your philosophical worldview? How do you deal with those who don’t share them, or derive them from a different source? Let’s just tackle this directly. I think everything starts from your family, how and where you grew up, who raised you, your religion when…

Jun 18: Might as Well Jump

What’s the biggest risk you’d like to take — but haven’t been able to? What would have to happen to make you comfortable taking it? Easy. Move to another country. This crossed my mind again during one of my “I woke up today, read shitty things about our government and I’m fed up” episodes last…

Jun 16: Bookworm

Tell us about the last book you read (Why did you choose it? Would you recommend it?). To go further, write a post based on its subject matter. It may seem like I didn’t understand the assignment (LOL, for all of you, Drag Race fans out there.) – trust me, I did. But instead of…

Jun 8: Do Not Disturb

How do you manage your online privacy? Are there certain things you won’t post in certain places? Information you’ll never share online? Or do you assume information aboutyou is accessible anyway? I woke up to the news of new duplicate fake accounts that have sprung up over the weekend and it was definitely alarming. I…
