I don’t know what 2017 will bring me but I hope that I will be able to achieve my goals this year.
For the past years, I rarely think about what the future will be for me, maybe because I was very young and still immature back then, I kind of lived in the moment and although I have goals I didn’t do anything to achieve it and I was just not that serious about it. But this year, I will make sure and give every effort that I have to accomplish my goals and future plans. I will do it one step at a time.
So my goals this year includes the following:
I am so excited right now and literally so happy because for months of being at home, I finally landed a job! I just can’t believe that by next year I will no longer be lazing around at home doing nothing. Lol.
I’m sharing this right now with you guys because finding a job that fits your skills is quite hard these days, especially to a person like me who is a fresh graduate and is just starting out, I seriosuly had a hard time these past few months. I honestly was depressed although it was not totally obvious but to tell you the truth, I was. I came to the point in my life where I no longer don’t want to use any form of social medias, I deactivated my facebook account, deleted and didn’t use my twitter and instagram accounts for months because every time I use them I just feel more depressed looking at the posts or updates from my batchmates who are already starting their own career. I was green with envy and it wasn’t doing me anything good at all, so I decided to quit social media at that time because it was already toxic for me, it was just making me compare myself to other people’s achievements and I wasn’t believing in myself anymore, at that very moment I wasn’t able to be sincerely happy for my friends because I felt envy instead, which is not good and I felt so horrible and wasn’t a good friend.
I was no longer happy with my life, I was moping around and thinking absurd stuff like I am never going to get a job because I’m stupid, I am not getting the job I want because I will never going to be good
I mentioned earlier in my last post that I usually am the one who cooks dinner for my family and that I will also be the one to cook . It wasn’t easy cooking six dishes on the same day, it was really exhausting to the point that I already want to sleep and don’t want to wait until 12 midnight and not to mention some of the dishes that I cooked were a total flop. Boohoo. Next time I will cook a lot of food on the same day I’ll make sure to start early so that I won’t get pressured in cooking and I will be able to finish it on time. I was so glad because my family also helped me in preparing the food. Next time I’ll make sure to do it properly and I’ll make sure that I will practice more so that I won’t get disappointed with the food that I cooked. Good thing my Lasagna was a total hit and also my Cordon Bleu.
So what I cooked during Christmas Eve were Lasagna, Cordon Bleu, Bulgogi, Beef Steak, Garlic Buttery Shrimp, and a Strawberry Cheesecake. I wasn’t able to take some nice photos of it because my relatives were already begging to eat dinner because they said that they were already starving so I didn’t have any choice and just let them eat right away. Lol. I do have pictures but I’m still not sure on whether I should post it. Lol.
Anyway, Merry Christmas everyone and enjoy the holidays with your loved ones! 🙂
For how many months I kept on bugging my aunt to buy an oven because I really wanted to learn how to bake and to try out new dishes, so last year just before Christmas she finally decided to buy an oven and I was very happy and excited to use it. That Christmas time I baked a lasagna and a new york cheesecake and I was happy with the result because it tasted good. It is already almost a year and I am already so used to using the oven because whenever I’m not busy I try to make time to try out new recipes to bake.
So to make this long story short, last monday evening I decided to bake because my tito ordered a 4 dozen of red velvet cookies for my mommy’s birthday. I decided to make the dough of the red velvet ahead of time and just chill it for the night so that I can bake it the next morning without too much of a hassle and also to have an ample amount of time to prepare because I also need to go meet up with my aunt at the mall.
When I was done making the dough I decided to bake a batch of smaller pieces so that I could eat it for a snack, when I already placed the dough in the cookie tray, I let it sit first because I still have to preheat the oven and as I was already trying to light it up, I couldn’t find the match in the kitchen and remembered that it was in our living room area (I don’t even know why it got there) so I started walking there for approximately just 8-10 steps and left our oven already turned on and the gas was already leaking out because I thought that it was okay for me to leave it for just a few seconds, like literally a few seconds! When I lit the match and put it near the small hole in the bottom of our gas oven, it suddenly flashed out and the flame was so near my face that I it really scared the living daylights out of me!
My hands were shaking and I was breathing heavily, because I thought that what if it exploded and caused a fire? What if it burned our house down? I was really irresponsible that time and made me think if I still have the guts to bake and use the oven because it kind of traumatized me! Fortunately God is still so good because my index and middle finger were the only ones that got affected, I had a minor burn and although it stings a lot, it is fine with me as long as I didn’t die. lol.
What I did to treat the minor burnt area in my hand, I rubbed an ice cube on it for how many minutes so that it will not get worse and further damage skin tissues. I already learned my lesson and that is to not leave our gas oven unattended even just for a few seconds.
Here are a few burn remedies to treat your minor wounds:
- Cold Water
- Ice Cube
- Aloe Vera
- Coconut Oil
Christmas is my favorite time of the year, not just because I’ll receive gifts (although I’m extremely happy when I do) but mainly because of the weather. I like the gloomy kind of weather, since it’s always hot here in the Philippines, I like it when the sun doesn’t come out and just stays hiding for the rest of the day. I like it when I’m outside and my sweat isn’t dripping from my body and the sunlight isn’t painful to the skin.
I love cooking and because it’s almost Christmas, I have the excuse to cook my favorite dishes and whenever it is Christmas time I am always the one who cooks the food for my family. I love that I get to cook not just my favorite dishes but also to try the new recipes that I discovered. I love it when I get to cook for my family, especially on special occasions. I’m no master chef but it seriously warms my heart every time they tell me that they loved the food that I prepared for them.
I’m thrilled to know what presents I’ll be getting this year, I hope it will be something that is useful. Shoutout to my family and friends, I just wanted to let you guys know that I’m already accepting gifts! Haha! Kidding!
Anyway, it doesn’t really matter if I’ll receive something this Christmas, if I’ll receive something then I’ll be glad but if I don’t then it’s still all right with me, because what’s important is that my loved ones are safe, we’re all together, and I also wish that whatever hardships that we’re dealing right now, that we’ll be able to get through it.
Advance Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you and your family will have a Merry Christmas this year! 🙂
Reading books is one of my favorite pastime activities especially when I’m home alone, whenever I’m at a certain place with no wifi, or if I just wanted to get away from reality for just awhile. My favorite kind of book to read is usually a young adult genre because I can somewhat relate to it and it is not that overly dramatic although there are still a few tearjerker parts of the book which I really love because I sometimes just want to ugly cry and I also like it when I am able to feel what the characters felt like in the book that I am currently reading, it feels like I am also there with them. It’s amusing for me when I read books because I can really feel their emotions and it feels like I am also a part of their lives and living with them and I sometimes feel like I am the main character of the book that I am reading. How i wish. lol.
So my favorite books so far are the following:
- Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
I LOVE this book so much because I can really relate to it! Haha! I am a Kpop enthusiast and I have been ever since I was still in high school and this story just perfectly narrate what most fangirls feel (what I felt during that time). It wasn’t just about being a “fangirl” that got me so hooked up with this story, the main character of the book (Cath) is an introvert, I mean she’s really shy and just wants to be with her sister all the time and when they were already in college, Cath wasn’t able to adjust as quick as her
I have been stressed out for a couple of months now, although I try not to think much about my “problems” but it still shows especially in my face. From what I observed my face starts to break out when I am stressed out or when I also lack a good 6-8 hours of sleep. For the past months I can only count with both of my hands the nights that I slept like a baby, I couldn’t sleep properly because of too much over thinking (about my future plans) that it is already affecting my body clock. As what I said, I have also experienced break outs on my face and I think it triggered more because of too much sweets. Whenever I’m stressed I tend to eat a lot of sweets, or any types of junkfood and eating unhealthy food everyday has a bad side effects in your body like having pimples, low immune system, and also being cranky.
I experienced all of that for these past months and it’s definitely stressing me out more. Lol. I literally don’t know what to do. How do you guys deal with stress? I deal with it through eating and I think it’s a bad idea because I’m starting to gain weight. Lmao.
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always been really shy like REALLY shy, mind you, I’m not even exaggerating. I still remember when I was in kindergarten and our teacher would let us sing the alphabet song or any nursery rhymes and make us stand in front of the whole class and I would literally shake because I was too shy to sing, so I tend to cover my face using my hair while looking at my shoes. I also used to cry whenever my mom leaves for work after she sends me to school because I didn’t want to be left alone at school. Haha!
Even when I was already in college, I always look at the lobby first whether there are a lot of students and contemplate hard enough if I should pass by the lobby or just use the other staircase near the cashier’s office (but it would consume a lot of time) and if I don’t have a choice and I really need to pass by the lobby because it is the shortest route to my classroom then I would use my phone and fake text then walk like my ass was on fire because
Words can’t describe how elated I am today because guess what?? I finally have my own domain name! I finally have my own blogging website and it makes me so
damn happy. Thanks to my aunt who helped me get my own domain. Although I’m having some problems with the images, I think it’s because of the image hosting site that I’m using but I’m already working on it. So my blog is currently under construction right now because I feel like there’s still something missing and I just can’t point out whether it’s the theme or the design of my header, I mean I like the theme of my blog because for me it looks neat and I wanted it to look simple but still attractive to look at. So I don’t really know right now maybe I’ll change the design of my header later on, but for now that will do. lol
The content of this blog will obviously be about
I am fond of trying out new restaurants and cafes so every time I discover new places here in Davao City it really excites me, because I like trying different kinds of cuisines and to taste new flavors that would suit my taste as a food enthusiast, but it doesn’t mean that if the food that you ordered in a restaurant/cafe is expensive, it will be automatically going to be delicious. 😞 I have already experienced
