• First Day of Work Recap

    Yes today was my first day of work at my new job. But I first had two back to back job interviews for other jobs in the morning before going to work. How did I pull that one off? Simple – just called my recruiter the day before and asked her if she could find out if going into work after lunch would be okay. She did the contacting for me and it was a yes. Whew. It was getting stressful prior to the OK because even though I wasn’t working yet, there seemed to be a constant flow of potential job related things that would come up. It made…

  • My 5-minute crazy job update (Vlog #3)

    Haven’t even started working yet but why is life so busy I don’t know. Maybe this is what adult life is all about – just go go go nonstop. Since my schedule has been crazy and it’s been harder than ever to find time for extra stuff, I recorded this short video during one of my drives today. I kind of like this 5-minute series I started. It makes blogging and vlogging so much less of a chore or obligation, and it keeps you updated on my personal development process which hopefully can aid your own personal development.

  • My second 5-minute post

    Tonight I’m writing another short post but this time using my phone, so I probably won’t get to say too much. And it might take slightly longer than 5 minutes. After receiving some feedback, it seems that some liked it when I posted on my blog every day, not necessarily after I’ve mastered something. I was told by someone that she enjoyed reading about what I go through as they happen. I guess there’s something to that – maybe it makes it easier for others to relate to and understand whatever I write about. I start my new job on Tuesday. I was looking forward to it but somehow three…

  • I Need Your Help! (My New Blogging Approach)

    Hey guys, I’ve been considering what would be the most beneficial for you guys in terms of what I post on this blog. Please comment below to let me know if you have a particular preference after reading this. I really do want this blog to become a helpful resource to my fellow millennials. For a couple of weeks or so, I tried posting something every day to be faithful in my content delivery, but I decided to try out another approach for at least the next few weeks. I know that for me, if I find a single blog post that I find extremely helpful and/or informative, I will most likely…

  • My Sunday OCD Planning for the Week

    I’m all about productivity and figuring out how to make the most out of my time, working towards ambitious goals, and all that jazz. So today I invested a good few hours of my time on this lovely Sunday afternoon/evening to set up a definite, specific plan for the upcoming week, which also happens to be the first week of my new job (starting Tuesday). I know I’ve referenced Sam Brown multiple times in the past but it’s because I feel like I can relate to her the most out of all the blogs I’ve come across. And no she did not tell me to promote her blog or anything.. I just…

  • My 5-Minute Blog Post on Relationships

    Hi. So it’s late here in LA and I want to go to sleep but I must fulfill my responsibility of writing a blog post so here I am. Relationships. Well I just got out of one at the end of November 2017, and since then I’ve reflected a lot and have had many realizations. I’ve learned a lot. I’ve learned a lot about myself and about males. If you want to be in a successful relationship, you have to have the maturity for it. That means that you have to already have your own adult life in order before getting serious with anyone. Otherwise you enter into an unhealthy…

  • Superficiality vs. Professionalism

    This is a topic that crosses my mind every now and then. In fact, I would say that this topic is rather close to my heart.. and I know that sounds really cheesy. Today, after I accepted my job offer over the phone, I had to make a trip to take care of on-boarding paperwork with my recruiter. I asked her over the phone if it mattered what I wore to the staffing agency where she works, since I had to dress professionally the first time I went there. She said I could dress as comfortably as I want, which was really nice to hear after having to wear uncomfortable…

  • Happiness is a Choice

    By the time I hit the “Publish” button it will probably already be the next day, but I still want to say, HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! <3 (Update: I published this post well after midnight not because I’m a slow writer but because I was multitasking.. or maybe I should say, distracted. And yes I am vindicating myself.) Yes, I emphasize the word “happy” because there is no point in moping about not having a “valentine” on an arbitrary day of the year. There is so much to be happy about if you really think about it. Sure, you may be single or jobless or living in a small place or…

  • First Vlog Post?

    Was planning to write a blog post in the morning but I was on the go this morning, so I tried this driving/video thing instead. Please forgive me for being all over the place! 😛
