It’s been a While

Yes. I can’t recall the exact date when I posted a really personal post on this blog. It’s been a while…this four-word phrase makes me look back what have I been doing all these years that I only managed to write a personal blog post now. I must be very busy that I don’t have any time to drop even a one-paragraph post to update how I’ve been doing. Since this is my personal blog, this site should have been filled with my personal ramblings, but I chose to avoid sharing my personal stuff here (at least this is only applicable in the past).

A Big Thank You to My Guest Post Contributors

This blog should have been put into extinction if not because of the help of some great guest bloggers. Their contributions help sustained the blogging drought that I went through and keeps this online portal going. Fortunately, starting from now, I proclaim that the drought is officially over! Hooray!

Empress of Drac Gearing towards a New Direction

I decided to slowly let go of the “living-in-the-moment” and “enjoy-the-present” me. My experiences from these past few years have taught me how to obtain real happiness and contentment through frugal living and by solely relying on myself. If you are a close-friend of mine, you must be really surprise but I’m quite serious this time. I will be using this blog to keep track of my progress and also to share my newly discovered ideas in living frugally and independently.

FARMING, My Newly-Found Ambition

Would you believe that FARMING is my newly-found ambition in life? I can see the old me raising a vegetable, poultry, and animal farm. The mere thought of this makes me feel happy and motivated. If I have to choose between living in the city and in the province, without a blink of an eye I would choose the latter. During these past few years, I discovered how living in the city can make a person more aggressive, depressed, anxious, unhappy, and most of all OLD. (I will discuss this realization in more details in my next blog post.)

Making a Living through Freelancing

Everyone in the Philippines goes ABROAD (to work). At least, that’s how I can describe it in a more exaggerated way. But, seriously speaking, going abroad is the only way most of my country men can find good opportunities to improve their way of living. Here in the Philippines, the government is filled of corrupt officials who are not busy serving the people but are occupied in fattening their pockets (BAD KARMA may be with THEM).

Since I graduated from college a few years ago, I’ve been hounded by colleagues and friends to go abroad. Well, who won’t be tempted if you can get your total worth of annual salary here in just a month by working there? But, the thought of being away from my loved ones was unbearable and I was quite contented with my salary. But then, a few years of working in the office makes me realize one thing – I don’t want to be like this forever. Sitting in the office 8 hours a day and receiving a salary bimonthly, and most of all working under close-minded superiors and bosses – can’t just tolerate it. Thus, I went full-time (flexi-time) freelancing. And I must say – I found freedom in working for the very first time, and the income? It’s just like you’re working abroad. (I will be featuring a lot about Freelancing on this blog, so keep on visiting.)

Other Topics that will be featured

Aside from Frugal Living, Self-Reliance, and Freelancing, I will also be featuring more about my other interest such as Cebu, Foods, Books, KDrama, North Korea, Gore and Horror Movies, and Health & Fitness. I’m also planning to start some advocacies (hope I can make them happen).

Have a Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year! Aja!

  1. Go go go, Agnes! I wish you the best in all your endeavors. I’m contemplating about farming myself. We have a small cacao farm in Balamban, which is now neglected since my tatay grandpa died and checking it out would be an ideal place to start. Cheers to the good life we make! 🙂
