Life Recently Vol. 5: Facing the Real World

by - Friday, April 03, 2020


It's been more than two years since my last update. I guess, I just became busy living my boring life. Lol. But to be honest, a lot of things have happened these past years that I've been away from my little comfort space here in the internet  —my blog. I remembered, I was just a second year college student back then. But right now, I am already a Licensed Realtor.

I never imagined myself that I would be selling properties —specifically condominiums and residential lots. But if ever you would consider investing in condominiums within Metro Manila, just let me know. I can give you good offers. 

I am not here to promote my current job. Instead, I am here to talk about personal experience about facing the real world. Honestly speaking, I was not ready to face the real world right after I graduated. Pressure from family, relativess, friends and workmates keeps on surrounding me, that for a second —I mean, for those two years I became lost.

Definitely, it's never good to become lost in life. But those years have also taught me tons of life lessons. So right now, while we are on Day 19 of Enhanced Community Quarantine, I've been thinking a lot of things. I am not overthinking tho, but I am just reflecting from those past years that I became lost and was carried away by everyone's pressures.

So here are my main three (3) thoughts I pondered for the past nineteen days of Enhanced Community Quarantine: 

  1. I will follow my career game plan so I won't become lost again. It's kinda helpful because there are, indeed, a lot of distractions and judgements while we are on our path towards our dreams that could influence and stirred on your own dreams which could make you lost again.
  2. I will take my hobbies (e.g. blogging, vlogging, editing, designing, crafting, photography and travelling) more seriously. Now that I am in the right mind, motivation and inspiration, I will now take my hobby seriously because I also want to earn money from it like my favorite successful bloggers, vloggers, graphic designers, photographers and travellers. 
  3. I will now live my own life to the fullest. I wasted those past years living with other's standards for myself that I totally forgot to live my own life. That's also the main reason why I also got lost at some point in my life. 
Besides doing life reflection, I also spent my days editing this blog (Kittycolz) and my blog for crafting (Craft'Me PH); finished quite few Korean and Chinese Dramas; processed some of my travel photographs that I will soon share with you here. 

Going back to my last blog post, I mentioned that we will fly at the last week of the month (April 2017). I was talking about our Singapore travel. Moreover, after those two years, we already been to five countries but I feel quite regretful because I haven't shared anything from our travels. Well, it's better late than never, right? So I am now here to share all my filtered and unfiltered travel experiences.

Two years are long enough to have so much backlogs. So I hope you could also bare with me as I am doing my best to catch up because I have tons of stories to share with you.

How about you, share your thoughts in the comments below on how do you keep up facing the real world?
