Hello! Thank for reading my blog posts. This post title is so straightforward that I only need to state my reason(s).
I actually have to minimize my time lurking online (Blogger, Facebook) so I can focus on my studies. That means I may not be able to update this blog as often as I did during the first two weeks of June. Furthermore, I also have something to take care of aside from my studies and it is something more private I cannot dig it any deeper.
Rest assured, I will come back to this blog and write a lot of things when I am unbound from these responsibilities I currently cannot run away from.
See you around as soon as I can break free.
Ever since I introduced my love for walking, I came up with the idea of tracking down the routes in the city (or maybe in the future, of other cities I can travel to) that I have traveled by walking. Yay~
This is my first record, but definitely not the first time I walked a distance this long. Last Tuesday, June 10th 2014, I went to DOST XI Regional Office by jeep to drop off my requirements as a part of my reporting routine every semester to keep my scholar profile updated (so that I won’t lose my scholarship and won’t have to deal with a scolding due to a late compliance).

Today was such an eye-opener. I’m not the type to open the conversation with a complete stranger, but I miraculously had the courage to break the wall between me and a fellow job applicant. That was some will-breaking move for an introvert and loner like me.
The interviewer did not arrive yet, so we had plenty of time for waiting. We just talked and talked and I listened so much to her interesting stories. She told me where she graduated from, her current job (and how much she dislikes the job, despite the good pay she gets), and some things about her family and love life. I later realized that I didn’t really share much of mine. If I recall correctly, I only disclosed my intention for applying and my status at school. After talking so much, we didn’t even know each other’s names, so we introduced ourselves after that long conversation.
Even with this level of acquaintance, she offered to treat me to lunch. I was reluctant at first, but it would be rude to refuse her offer so I gladly accepted it. I learned so much from her.
It made me feel like I really am inexperienced when it comes to the ‘real world’, the ‘real life’. I still have a lot to work on and a lot of experiences to gain to help me gain confidence.
Thanks to this experience, I might become a social person, too. I hope that someday, I will be able to also share my experience to someone who needs to be briefed about the world and people around us, just like how she taught me all these things.
This is just the beginning for me.
Walking wasn’t my thing, but I did a lot of walking even when I was an elementary kid. when going to church alone for supplementary lessons, I only walked from my home. The distance was more than a kilometer but less than two. When going to the nearest mall (Victoria Plaza), I would only walk from our house, too. Now that I think about it, I may have enjoyed walking ever since then. Continue reading Embracing the culture of walking

It’s 0:01 of June 12, 2014 as I am writing this part. This means that I stayed awake to witness the transition from yesterday to today.
To the Filipino people, Happy Independence Day! Continue reading Happy Independence Day!
