    COVID-19: Children’s Mental Health Matters Too

    COVID-19: Children's Mental Health Matters Too

    "The pandemic has been difficult, especially for kids who already struggle with depression and anxiety," says Brooke Gomez, LPC, a clinical therapist at Children's Health℠. "One of the things we advocate for mental health is reaching out, socializing and leaning on a social support system. But because of COVID-19, now we're telling families to do the opposite and stay socially distanced, to protect their physical health."

    HBD 34

    People usually say that as they grow older, birthdays and celebrations have less meaning. That's not the case for me. I woke up with my son's greeting "Happy Birthday Mommy!" and I was excited to spend my day than ever.

    How’s your head? – R-18 Rant

    How's your head? - R-18 Rant

    h”Haven’t had any complaints!” as the common line on RPDR (Ru Paul’s Drag Race) always say. But kidding aside, my head is not okay. I can’t even post a rant on FB because I got muted. Why? Because I was posting rants against the incompetency of the government left and right. Well, not just rant. I was cursing, saying death threats. Wishing death against other human beings (as evil they may be).  How’s your head? The past few months were a road to recovery. I thought…

    Lolo and His Frank Sinatra Concert Memory - Quick Story

    I need to write this down to get this story out of my mind. It keeps on running. This is a true story by the way.

So nung nalaman nya, inaya nya kaagad si lola to go there. Unfortunately, hindi sila nakabili ng ticket (not sure kung sold out, or…

    Nothing excites me anymore? An “old” blogger’s frustration.

    Nothing excites me anymore? An "old" blogger's frustration.

    Totally random. But I just had to write this one down. My feelings.  I was scrolling around my social media feed, enjoying what I was seeing. Friends posting their new finds, whether food, beauty product or even gadgets. I used to be that person. My eyes sparkled and lightbulbs flash over my head whenever I found something that excites me. A new milk tea flavor?! That cute lippie with a sparkling pink tube??! A trending makeup look?! The latest makeup collab collection?! But now, my…

    I got fat.

    I got fat.

    That’s it. That’s the post. I got fat.  Sometimes I even wonder if anyone still reads my blog even if it’s not a “how-to” guide or a product review. Over the past few days (weeks even). I’ve been occupied trying to make a living and trying to make something out of my life. Just like the rest of us. I finally got a couple of jobs that don’t make me pull my hair out of my scalp, albeit they don’t pay as much. But it’s…

    Snippets of Sanity – My first published book!

    Snippets of Sanity

    I really hope there’s a follow-up to this one. I’ve always dreamed of being an author, and that dream has finally become a reality thanks to Ukiyoto publishing. Snippets of Sanity is a compilation of some of my favourite stories that I’ve shared on my blog (plus bonus content!).  My Childhood Dream I had a lot of dream careers when growing up.
