Why I Haven’t Been as Active Lately

Hello! I’m just posting to let you guys know that I am still very much alive, just busy with work and other stuff, and I wanted to post about something personal while I’m at it.

I guess I’ve been losing my drive to blog and vlog regularly for a number of reasons. It has come to a point wherein I have lost the will to post regularly on my Instagram feed. No, I’m not depressed. But here are some of the reasons why I’ve been inactive:

Applying for the UP MBA Graduate Program + the GPAT Exam

Wooh okay, I’ll be documenting my UP MBA application experience here. If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that I made it through the first round, because I promised I won’t talk about the UP-MBA application if I’m not accepted. There are a lot of other great resources online, namely the PEX forums, Juanabeme, and Sabuhaynimay, all of which helped me plan my application and review. This is from my personal experience, so it might be different from the accounts of other people.

There’s a new hair trend that’s taking over Instagram by storm, and I’m completely mesmerized by it! The holographic hair has been getting a lot of raves, which is believed to have been started by the Ross Michaels Salon in Seattle, Washington. With a few shades of Pravana, coupled with olaplex to maintain the blonde in the hair, holographic hair is born! And it’s every bit as magical as a unicorn.

2016 In Review

While most people spend their time meditating and planning during the last few days of the year as a form of reflection, I choose to write my year-end essay. It’s something I always look forward to before the year ends, to help me remember the good things that happened as the year comes to an end, and start the new year with gratitude and positivity in my heart.

Some of the highlights of my year were spent with teammates, people I consider friends now...

Will be spending the rest of the holiday season trying to finish all the blogging backlogs I have! Wish me luck!

So I’m writing this today, today out of all days when I’m depressed and I feel like despair is eating me alive. Right now, I don’t feel like I’m in control of my life, and I hate it.

How I Lost Weight Without Exercise

Disclaimer: I’m not going to go as far as saying that these practices are healthy. I’m just narrating the story of how I managed to lose weight in the past couple of months.

Let me tell you a short story of how I gained weight. Short story: a full-time job happened. Stress happened, and I compensated with overeating. Last year, I was extremely unhappy with how I look because of the extra pounds I gained over my first year at my then-new job...
