What's up? | Life Lately vol. 2




Hi there. It’s been a while since I posted the volume 1 of this series. I wasn’t able to post that much since life has been challenging for the past months. Hopefully, I can turn things around so that I could post an update at least every month.

This post will also be a roundup of the first three months of the year 2020.




- I volunteered!

               This is part of my 2019 New Year’s Resolution and I was able to achieve it this year (better late than never). With the initiative of my cousin, we gave relief goods to the Taal Volcano eruption victims. My cousin was able to ask for donations (in-kind and material) that we packed the day before. We went to San Luis Batangas because she was advised that it was the municipality who received the least amount of donations. I was blessed to have an employer that was considerate enough and allowed me to go on a half-day at that time. That was a heart-warming experience. Seeing the faces of the people that we were able to help ease all of our stress and tiredness that we’ve gone through.









- First Travel of the year | Dingalan Aurora

               This is my first and hopefully not the last travel of the year. I’ve made a post dedicated to this travel.







- I attended UP Fair for the first time

               This is my first time attending a concert. It was a great time with my friends and we were able to see local hip-hop artists, enjoy great food and party until midnight.






- Big Bad Wolf Sale

               For those who know me, I am a wide reader. I enjoy reading fictional and romance books. As I age, my book preference changed as well. I am into self and personality development books. I already started to read some self-help ebooks. All Bibliophiles can relate but we all know how good it feels reading physical books so I went to the Big Bad Wolf Booksale to take advantage of affordable goodies. I am looking Simon Sinek, Mark Manson, and Jen Sincero books. Unfortunately, those books were out of stock so I’ve looked for several self-help books to add up on my reading list.





- 1st Work Anniversary

               I’ve spent my 1st work anniversary on my current employer. I am working on a Telecommunications company based in Australia. I started as technical support, (we all knew as a call center agent). One year has passed and I am now the Floor Support of our team. It feels good when you know that you started from scratch and what I’ve achieved so far. I’ve also applied for a promotion however I was rejected, as Oprah Winfrey says; “Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness. I know that there are a lot of things that I need to improve on especially on handling my emotions and I am looking forward to what will happen in the next few years of my career here.


- COVID-19 // Luzon is under ECQ // Work from home

               Just a few weeks ago, the world was shaken by a pandemic and the Philippines was also affected. Due to the spread of this viral disease, Luzon is on the state of Enhanced Community quarantine whereas people are not allowed to go outside unless there is a need to go to the hospital to see a doctor or to buy foods. Big establishments such as malls and restaurants are closed and social distancing has been ‘strictly’ implemented. In line with this, to make sure that the employees are not at risk, our employer allowed us to do work from home. Amidst this chaos happening, I am fortunate that I am part of the company that is letting me earn still at the convenience of being at home.


Hoping that you are doing well and I am praying for everyone’s health and safety.


How about you? How is your life going so far?
