📝 My last week of November in summary

    Finally back home to my unit after being at home with my parents for the week! I was on leave for the whole week at work, because: I’m trying to finish up my leaves, since I can’t carry them over to next year it was my parent’s anniversary this week, and I also haven’t been home for a while I literally did nothing else at home but lie down and watch videos on my phone.

    thoughts;

    Hello! Things have been going well so far. Slowly but surely I’m doing my best to be more deliberate with the things I do. I’m working towards being more honest with myself, in terms of what I want to do, who I want to spend it with, and overall just taking care of myself. Here’s hoping next week is stable for me. -Chi #timelapse

    Random list of things I want to focus on

    These things don’t really have a deadline in my head, but I guess for the sake of writing stuff down, I want to share them here. Here’s a list of things I want to spend more time on, in no particular order (other than in the order I think about them as I write this): helping out in raising awareness and calling for action to create and further enforce safer spaces for women and vulnerable people on Philippine roads, starting with the closest urban area I’m in, which is Metro Manila learn more about Framer, review my Webflow knowledge, and just find a way to build websites quickly for people who might need help in setting that up be more deliberate in enforcing my boundaries, even with the things I do for myself Take no bullshit, even from friends (especially from friends), and know when to bring things up to further recalibrate a connection (or maybe recognize when it’s time to end things) work on and finish projects, and learn to set milestones and goals so it doesn’t feel neverending?

    weekly; unfiltered, timelapse

    the episodes have become weekly. I find it a bit amusing that even my moods or emotions follow a 2-week sprint. I guess that’s the effect of my work on me. I wanna feel better, get better. I’m trying to be more honest with myself. And also be more caring for my wellbeing. After I do so, anyway, I feel lighter. Sometimes I can get out of the rut by myself.

    A year does go by fast; self-reflection and other musings

    The past year has been eventful, to say the least. I don’t particularly feel like I’ve grown, but I guess that’s mostly my low self-esteem talking right now. In reality, I do recognize that I have changed, in more ways than one. The people I hang out with are slightly different now than it was a year ago. My focus is also on different things now as well. Skills-wise, though, I wonder if I grew.

    A bit of reflection on not using Twitter anymore

    I feel a bit of grief over not using or updating in Twitter anymore, but only because at some point I did work hard to get my social graph to where it is now. But considering what I want to do now, I can afford not to have it. I now just have to make sure all my other public-facing aspects show a part of who I am, based on what I want people to see.

    📝 Getting to know myself more in the past year

    Originally posted online on 25 September 2021. I’m grateful for all the experiences I’ve gone through, both the good and bad, because these have all shaped me into who I am now. // Photo by Flo Karr / Unsplash This past year, I think I have gotten to know myself better. It feels refreshing to be fully aware of the things I love and things I’d rather not go into, to know where my boundaries are, and to know which things I’d like to try out, either soon or in the far future.

    📝 25 Things I Learned after 25 years of existing

    This was originally posted on 4 September 2021. My birthday has officially passed. I figured I’d write a list of 25 things I learned as I turned 25, in no particular order, just for the heck of it. // Some of these may be rephrases of other items, and some might also contradict each other. Then again, this isn’t a list you should take everything word-for-word. Some items resonate with different experiences in my life, hence why they’re listed here.
