Life Lately | Got My Second Tattoo

I have been planning on getting another tattoo for so long. I had ideas on what should I get next but having a conservative parents, getting another tattoo is impossible.

I got my first tattoo back in 2014. I asked my dad if we can get a tattoo and working in a customer service pace job is how we met and knew our tattoo artist that time. They had a place near our job and one Saturday afternoon we (by we, I meant my sister and my dad) stopped by at their tattoo shop to get inked.

2018: You Have Been the Greatest!

I’m starting to wonder, when will i ever finish this post! I have been drafting posts but ended up deleting them…so here’s another attempt to write up a year-ender post (for me to look back in the next years)!

2018 has been really crazy roller-coaster like year. A year of laughter, new life lessons and experiences!

There are honestly a million things I wanted to tell you guys, from why I am being MIA on the blog, not posting things on our page and not posting new things on my Instagram.

My First Solo Travel Experience

To those people who personally know me, knows that I don’t go out that much. I’d rather stay at home – watch Netflix, a series or play video games. And for someone who is shy, quiet and awkward- this trip is really big and it did meant something for me, I must say, one of the things I have achieved before I reach 30.

I really don’t plan on going anywhere this year to be honest. I have dream places/states to visit, but it’s not my year yet. Besides, before I asked my parents about this trip, I am not a 100% sure that they’ll allow me to– but surprisingly, they did.

Bible Verses that Helped Me

I admit, I always miss hearing Sunday masses. The last time we heard mass was probably last January, few days before our interview (which I might post in few weeks or so). But I always talk to him like literally every night before I go to sleep. And every day I wake up I try to read what’s on my daily verse.

And He knows about my relationships – everything about them. Including all the tears and laughter, including those pain I feel – He knows all about it.

Holidays in the Philippines

It’s no surprise that I miss the place where I grew up – The Philippines.

And I feel so lucky and grateful that after five long years of living in the United States, I can say that Yup, it’s nice to go back home~

It was almost an 18-hour flight from New York to Manila. We rented a cab that drove us from New Jersey to New York, which surprisingly took us few hours only. Heh. And yup, I didn’t sleep on the trip and took the entire road trip to see New York in dawn.. We came in early, checked in our bags and waited for our departure time. It was then, the 6th of December and to be honest, I am pretty much excited that we are all going back home. As usual, there is nothing much excited about a long haul flight, well good thing there is an in-flight games and tons of movies to keep us awake and entertained.

Vacation Haul | 2016

The reason behind me not blogging for a while is because my family and I took a month long vacation in the Philippines. But no worries, I am back in the States, finished editing some of the photos I took and will try to publish at least once or twice a week. And I’ll probably start working on the posts sometime next week or whenever I am free, since I start working again next week. So let me start this vacation posts with this vacation haul.

These are just things that I bought and others are from my lovely friends.

Let’s Talk About The Things I’m Thankful For

Looking back, last year’s Thanksgiving post was about long distance relationship couples who have something to say and something that would like to thank about. And that same year, I have been thankful because of having a clean state heart and in fact a happy heart. It wasn’t the memories that hit me, instead the realizations I am having right now and in the past few days.

And this year, as I am writing and finishing this Thanksgiving post – I realized that I have a lot to be thankful for whether small or big things that had happened in my life in 2016.
