Hello world, it’s been a couple of months since I last blogged. Close to a year, in fact! My last post was dated 1 December 2015.

So many things happened in between. I don’t know where and how to begin.

Firstly, I’ve officially turned 21 and am legally an adult. I didn’t hold a grand party like most of my peers do. Instead, I opted to celebrate my birthday by meeting old and new friends alike throughout the month of July and spent the actual day with my boyfriend and family.

Next, I dropped my Marketing Major and focusing solely on Human Resources. I hope to eventually find a HR job in the Hospitality industry after I graduate. However, I’m aware that the economy is down now and it’s unlikely recover anytime soon. Hence,  I’m willing to try out any jobs that come my way, even with lesser (albeit not by too much) pay. What’s most important is that I’m able to learn new things and get experience.

Apart from that, it’s been a year since my maternal grandfather passed away (he left us on 24 September 2015) and also the last time since I’ve returned to Bohol, Philippines.

My mum recently applied to become a citizen of Singapore (she’s currently a PR). We’ll only know of the results next year.

Lastly (no, not really), My boyfriend and I plan to seek marriage approval from the Ministry of Manpower (a.k.a. MOM) next year, most likely after I graduate from University. It’s necessary to do so as he’s a work-permit holder. According to the MOM site, failure to do so will result in the withdrawal of his work permit (which means that he’s unable to work in Singapore anymore) and he may not be able to enter Singapore for a period of time.

There’re obviously a couple of things that I’ve yet to mention, but I’d probably leave it for another time. Bye for now.


Passion for writing… Gone

This is going to be a pretty sporadic post.

I remember the days where I used to bring along a few pieces of paper/notebook and a pen or two out just so I can keep record of what was happening in my daily life. After which, I’d transfer what I’ve written to my blog when I got home (I used to own one when I was a primary & secondary school student) – with a little editing here and there of course. 🙂

I wouldn’t say that I have a fantastic grasp of the English language; in fact, till today, I still don’t get what are nouns, adjectives and the like. Funnily enough, I usually get good grades in English. Once, I got a B for an exam and I broke down in the middle of class as I had expected an A… Well, that was pretty embarrassing. Oops, I have digressed a little.

Anyway, to cut the long story short, I really enjoyed writing when I was little. That’s why I opted to take Mass Communication when I graduated from secondary school as I believed it was my passion. Well, I thought wrong. Somehow along the way, I did not enjoy writing as much as before and I struggled quite a bit for my writing assignments. And that was also part of the reason why I stopped blogging altogether.

I think I can safely say that my English has deteriorated significantly. 😦

I remember how I used to say that my blog is an essential part of my life because it comprises of memories and experiences, be it good or bad. Unfortunately, everything’s gone now as I’ve deleted most of my posts. I just gotta rely on my long-term memory and pray it won’t fail me… yet.

Writing has become more of a chore over the years, and I don’t really like that. Where did my love for it go?
