Engagement and wedding photos flow through my social media accounts nowadays. They’re pretty, memorable, yet nerve wracking for me that I contemplate on how those pictures and videos affect my 28-year-old self.



Remember my post about me doing a blood test to confirm if I have an autoimmune disease? From that time I posted it, I was on the edge…

I felt like a white rose stained by blood. Do I have an auto- immune disease? Am I the lucky family member who inherited that toxic DNA?


My colleague asked me how do I know when someone is true to me or not.

I was overwhelmed by her question. It’s not a first but it’s been a long time since I was asked about this topic. So I did not know what to say at first.


When you decided to release your years of guilt, like an cutting your hair, you would feel lighter. I thought that was the case.


I submitted 5ml of my blood to our laboratory and the result is overwhelming that I bowed my head and uttered a prayer.


A Lazy First Day of The Year

It’s the first day of 2018. I opened eyes and saw in a huge bold four- letter word ‘lazy’ in the ceiling. Why today? I’ve loads to do!


In my newly found cafĂ©, my nasal cavity inhales that 2017 is slowly coming to an end. It’d be four days to go.

I took my notebook, and made a list on what I’d wish to accomplish next year.

Avoid Too Much Unnecessary Buys

This year I bought tons of unnecessary items. I paid for them not seeing the consequences of not using them ‘accurately’. I purchased a summer dress that until now I did not wear.

Last January, I splurged myself a white tee that I only wore once. I bought three new denims with the same genre, and just wore two of them. I shopped for the new Adidas Ultraboost, hoping that I’d use it on my morning run in our village. Since I arrived home, I did not accomplish running around the village. I will keep these unnecessary items to be reminded that I will only buy important things.

Learn More and Train Harder

My past job stuck me in an area. It put me in a department where I did not practice my nursing profession thoroughly. I was binded by handing instruments of a dentist, and inserting intravenous fluids. So in the coming year, I look forward in joining an institution that would challenge me and my capabilities.

I am excited to be pacing around the ward with new skills to learn. I would also like to be trained and mentored by a motivating senior.

For 2018, I am preparing to enroll in a class to enhance my nursing skills. It’d be either on emergency nursing or oncology or pediatric nursing.

Keep Priorities On

At this point of my life, my priority is having a house and lot. I purchased one with a little help from my thoughtful aunt. I am now left with paying the monthly amortization. I keep tabs on this for the coming year.

House mortgage is a pain in the ass. It’d eat my salary. It would mean maximum sacrifice. But I should not keep this off. I already made this my motivation for 2018 and the coming year.

Stick to a Side Hustle

I dropped my writing and online marketing skills two years ago. I focused on being a nurse. And I felt a hole on my heart.

Before 2017 ends, I searched for any online marketing part- time jobs, hoping I’d find one by the first month of 2018. When I’d have a side hustle, I’d stick to it and nourish it like what I did years ago to give myself a feeling of great joy.

My caramel macchiato is gone cold now. Happy New Year in advance, folks!
