Life Update...It's been ages!


It's been ages!!!Oh yeah my last post was August 2015 and it's October 2016 already. I really miss u all!

It's been 13 months which is 1 year and 1 month ago since I wrote on this blog. A lot has happened during that 1 year and 1 month to me, I can't specifically mentioned all of those but I would like to summarize what really happened why I am out in the blogging world. I apologized for being away for so long. I missed writing to this blog.

Ok, let me now start my summarize story here.

Last August 2015 in my last post I mentioned about being a judge in my previous school where I teach before in there Ms and Mr Nutrition Month. I also got myself enrolled in a NC 2 Food and Beverage short course as a requirement in my application for a public school. All teacher's are required now to have a NC 2 certificate aside from the 4 year Bachelor Degree. I finished that for 4 months only and passed the national certification exam after that, the short course was expensive and it depleted my Coop savings :( yeah but I know knowledge can't be bought. During that 4 months also, I have met my first boyfriend and now an ex-boyfriend. We are classmates on the class where we met. I will no longer mentioned him here since we already parted our ways last July 17, 2016. Haha I still remember the date but anyways that's all about him, thank you, lol!

A lot of opportunities come along my way during those 1 year and 1 month but I declined them all, YES who would believe I have the guts to declined them since I am a type of person who always accept anything that throws at me and specifically it is a teaching job. Since I got my degree all I really wanted was to teach in a school but there is something along the way or i think on myself that blocks it for me to achieve it. After I graduated from College last 2009, I had an experienced working online and the work is flex, I own my time and that interests me a  lot. While working online I still applied in schools to be a teacher and they hired me but only for a few months, a 2 month, 3 month or 5 month contract only. So during the day I worked as a teacher and at night as a virtual assistant online. It was really hard to have 2 jobs at the same time, I lost so much weight and was not sleeping very well. After that experienced teaching I had stop last 2014.

Right now I am still working online but my current employer has a problem on his business and this keeps  me worried if when will I have this kind of job. I don't know where will I go if this will happen, I am financially depending on it. Plus the very sad part of this was that my savings has been depleted already, meaning I have 0 savings or emergency fund, 8k only in FAMI-SALEF since I withdraw a 25k to buy my new laptop now to use for work. Yes very sad right :( but I am not losing hope, I am praying that I will be out of this situation soon and will got my finances back on track. I am also planning to buy a VUL from a friend this month.

I don't want to dwell and think about the negative side right now and I am now thinking on the positive aspect of what's best to do about my situation. I have a plan to go back to teaching next year. I don't really know yet right now on what to do but hoping the situation I am in right now will not last too long.

Since right now I am not busy with worked I can now have the time to update this blog always. :)

Talk to you soon.


  1. Just keep going sis, makakaraos ka rin You're one of my inspiration why I decided to go back to school. Sana makapag masteral din ako.
    Actually, we have the same financial situation because our company is not doing well. Ang sahod ko 1k every week at pinagkakasya while working & studying. Nakikiusap lang akong lakihan kung kinakailangan. Plus yung laptop ko 2 yrs installment binabayaran ko pa rin kaya hindi pa ako maka-resign. Buti ikaw may online job. gusto ko rin yan kasi ang hirap mag-commute e.

    Just one advice I got before & I want to share it with you - ako kasi hiwalay ang insurance & investment, di ako nakuha ng VUL kasi hindi stable ang job ko. Kapag gumewang ako financially pede ako mag stop sa mutual tulad ng ginawa ko ngayon at tinapos ko insurance para di ma-forfeit at di magkaron ng interes.

    Don't worry may kasunod na blessings ang paghihirap natin. God Bless.

    1. Hi Sis Grace,

      It's been a while na hindi ako nakasulat sa blog ko kasi andami nangyari personally,hehe. Balak ko sis bumalik ng pagtuturo next year, may balakid talaga bkit hindi talaga ako matanggap sa public school dahil sa working experience ko as a teacher. Kaya balak ko magturo sa private school next year for additional experience. Sana ma grant ni God sa akin next year. Natanggap na sana ako nuong June sa isang private school bilang part time teacher pero di ko tinanggap dahil sa personal na rason din. Sana wla na akong ma rason pra di ako makabalik ng pagtuturo.
      I have my FAMI as a mutual fund sis, kaso na stop ko xa this year at balak ko bumalik ng invest next month sana. Yung VUL kasi is pra life insurance din ako,1500php monthly lang yung kinuha kong coverage muna kasi yan lng kaya sa budget ngayon.

      Tama I am keeping my faith and praying na lahat ng paghihirap my kasunod na blessings galing ky God. God Bless also sa iyong studies sis grace :)

  2. Another advantage mo sis, may NC2 ka na. Bubunuin ko pa yan pagkatapos ng pag aaral ko.

  3. Hello, thanks for sharing. Everything will turn out okay. Just keep yourself positive. Sa totoo lang, di rin madali talaga ang mag teach lalo na sa Grade school.Napaka stressful. Though I am not a teacher but I can tell through the experiences of my siblings who are teachers.
