Aug 30: A little sneaky

Are writing prompts a useful exercise, or do you find them to be too limiting and/or hokey? I do think that it is a useful exercise. I started doing these writing prompts because I want to write more and post more on this blog. But you know, sometimes, there is just nothing to write about….

Aug 24: These boots were made for walkin’

Tell us about your favorite pair of shoes, and where they’ve taken you. I’m going to deviate a little bit from the question and just talk about my favorite pairs of shoes! I have never talked about shoes on this blog before. I remember doing something like this when I was on Multiply and that…

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…
