I came, I saw, I conquered: The 30-day Blogging Challenge

Finally! Yesterday, I posted the last entry for my 30-day Blogging Challenge. Whew! At first, I didn’t expect that I would be able to finish it, what with my busy schedule and attention span. The topics given weren’t that easy to write about everyday, but I have gathered thoughts and ideas from my daily reads and experiences. From serious philosophy to almost forgotten childhood memory, I have braved the challenge to simply write and express myself. Being a new tool to prevent my seemingly writer’s block, I can say that it had successfully pushed me to write even about mundane Read More …

30-day Blogging Challenge: Day 19 (A talent of yours)

Hello my dear readers. The topic for today filled me with dread. Perhaps after giving my answer for the question for this day, some of you might stop reading my posts or even un-follow my blog. You see, the theme is “A talent of yours”. It took me a long time to answer this one. Lovelies, I’m sorry to say, but I think I am a very untalented person. I believe talent is something that you have since you were born and honed as you grew up. I’m not sure there is anything in me that could classify as a Read More …

30-day Blogging Challenge: Day 18 ( A time when you felt passionate and alive)

I have many things I am passionate about. There was more than one time that I feel so passionate and alive in doing. But for this post, I’d talk about something that I really like doing. It makes me feel light and blessed whenever I do this. I like participating to outreach programs. I love to volunteer for worthy causes. For me, some have the opportunity to share their money, but everyone has the chance to share their talents, skills, time, and blessings. I believe in the saying that we must pay it forward. Whatever we receive, we must try Read More …

30-day Blogging Challenge: Day 17 (An art piece)

Last night, I have finished pouring over Rick Riordan’s The Mark of Athena. As the third installment of The Heroes of Olympus (Series 2 of The Olympians series with Percy Jackson), the novel focused on the quest the seven demigods from two camps (Roman and Greek) must complete and achieve. In the story, the Mark is a coin of an owl, an animal sacred to the goddess of wisdom, art, war, justice, and skill. The Greek daughter of Athena must go on a solo quest to accomplish something that generations of the goddess’ children failed to do. Guided by the Read More …

30-day Blogging Challenge: Day 12 (A song that you want played at your wedding)

I suddenly woke up by the growing voices outside the room. “God, let me get more sleep,” I silently pleaded. I was beat and harassed for the last few days that catching some z’s seemed impossible. Oh well, I’ll reunite with my neglected bed as soon as the preparations are finished. “Preparations for what?” my sleep-deprived brain asked my being. “For what?” Oh! Then I bolted out of bed. I pulled my robe and made myself decent before I opened my hotel room. Outside, familiar faces crowded the doorway, all speaking at once. “Okay, okay. I got you guys,” I Read More …
