    Personal Musings: On motherhood and motivation

    On motherhood and motivation

    Geof approached me one morning and I was surprised by his question: Mom, how do you stay motivated? It wasn’t his usual curiosities like why are lemons sour, or what cats are allergic to. I looked at my son closely and realized he wasn’t a baby anymore *sobs*. He’s nearing his teen years and growing up. I’m grateful that he considers my opinion still valuable. I asked him back: Motivated to do what? Well, Geof continued, you always exercise, you work hard, and you still…

    I’m studying in Harvard for free!

    Im studying *at 𝐇𝐚𝐫𝐯𝐚𝐫𝐝 for FREE! (𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘤𝘢𝘯 𝘵𝘰𝘰) Don’t forget to tap ♥️ and SAVE 🔖 for future reference. So ayun na nga, bukod sa work, parenting, lovelife, at gym stuff, isa to sa pinagkakabalahan ko. Ang pag-babalik “estudyante” I recently took a Rhetoric course in Harvard X.

    Personal Musings: Post-pandemic updates (sort of)

    There are a LOT of stories to tell. Really. Since the whole COVID pandemic happened in 2019. We all had experienced our ups and downs (mostly downs), and if you’re reading this now, you are a survivor. The pandemic isn’t over yet, but we have seen positive signs of recovery. Majority of the population has been vaccinated, there are on-going research for future medications that will make the covid part of the “normal” flu shots. But I’m not here to write scientific or political updates. I’m just here…

    Being Bipolar: Depression and Procrastination

    Being Bipolar: Depression and Procrastination

    Hiya.. I have Bipolar-1, and to be honest, it’s hard for me to work. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job. I’m a writer who gets to submit whenever as long as it’s within the day. In my blogs, I get to write whatever I want. But when I’m in that phase where.. doing anything is a painful chore, I have to really  push myself to do it. Procrastination. I have a lot of time, but I can’t seem to function.  I’ve been neglecting my…

    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…

    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…

    Why I Try to Never Say “No” To My Child

    A friend raised a question on Facebook recently if he should buy his son a violin, because he’s interested in violin as of the moment. He wasn’t so keen on getting one, because his son might lose interest in just a couple of days, or weeks.  Should you say NO? My lengthy answer is below Disclaimer: We’re not going to talk about spoiling our children. We”re going to talk about positive and supportive parenting. Using positive parenting phrases can set more precise boundaries than the…
