The Right Way To Hate Monday

me looking forward to Monday lol

I used to hate Mondays. Trust me, I hated it so much that I think it dislikes me too. Well, I'm not saying this because social media said so but because that's just how I felt when I have to wake up so early in the morning after a good weekend. Actually, I sometimes start dreading it on Sunday nights 'cause that's like "Monday eve" y'know. I know you can relate to this. 

What Makes a Good Life?

“If you were going to invest now in your future best self, where would you put your time and your energy?” 

It will be a total lie if you say you’ve never worried about the future. I mean, who hasn't? Fear is part of life’s blueprint. It’s either you walk the path and work it out, or downright quit and exit. These choices truly affect the quality of life that we make.

About two weeks ago, I watched a talk about making a “good life”. Yep, Ted talks are my versions of self-help books. Anyway, it makes me wonder how other people perceive a good, happy, and healthy life. Growing up, we probably have heard enough of the importance of working hard and earning hard to be able to get a good life.

Weekend Attempts: Making Easy UBE Halaya (Purple Yam Jam) With Just Five Ingredients

 I finally got some UBE FIX after months of waiting. I always look for Ube or Purple Yam whenever my mom and I go to the market but I usually don't see anyone selling it. Yesterday, I saw someone post about it on Facebook so I ordered instantly. It was so funny because after ordering it, my mom and I went to the market and found people selling Ube for a lower price. Ugh hahaha! But yeah, I'm so glad I got to make my favorite Ube jam/halaya last Saturday.

2020 Struggles + New Year's Resolution

Happy New Year, Everyone! 2020 has been a crazy ride. Despite the challenges we are facing because of the pandemic, I also had some personal ones I needed to work and focus on in the past few months. 

I just want to be honest here on my blog. I struggled with the other side of weight management. People always talk about the struggles of losing weight, but the problems of gaining weight or being underweight aren't always discussed in the media. Some may even say "sana all" but that's not always the case. What I experienced helped me get to know myself more and made me realize that you really have to put in the effort if you want to reach your goals. 

5 Important Lessons That I Learned Last Month

We are already halfway through November but today, I'd just like to share some things that I realized last month. I was supposed to do a blogtober but my work got the best of me and I missed it. As a writer and as part of a creative team, last month was way too much of a creative juice. I felt almost mentally drained that writing on my own space would feel a little dragging. It's weird and ironic because right now, as I write this, I feel like I wanna share so much of my life lately. Have you ever felt that way?
