Hello everyone! I hope you are all safe and healthy. Everything’s pretty crazy right now. I still can’t believe this is happening. I’m just really hoping that everything will be okay soon! My heart goes out to those who are infected by the virus. I know this is a very hard time for everyone, but let’s continue to pray and ask for healing. Also, I’m very grateful to our front-liners who continuously help us fight this battle. I am in awe of their selflessness and bravery.
Well, it’s kind of bad timing but I had to resign from my previous job as a teacher. If you know me personally, you know that I’ve been teaching for almost 4 years already and I finally decided to let go of that career. I’ve thought about it a lot and I have come to this decision. Maybe in a few years’ time, I’ll take this path again, but for now, I’d like to discover new career paths to take. I have choices in mind, but it’s really hard to apply for a job right now especially with what’s happening with the coronavirus. So many plans have been put on hold. Still, I’m glad because I have another source of income. Last January, I started doing freelance writing and virtual assistance. I didn’t know that you can actually earn with creating content for others. One day, I was just looking for online jobs and I came across this whole new world that I am now a part of. It’s really amazing because I learned it all by myself and it’s really easy! I have been building my portfolio and my digital studio and hopefully this month, I’ll be able to launch it and get more clients. Let me know if you want to learn how to be a virtual assistant, I’ll be happy to help!
On other news, as you can see, I moved AGAIN to WordPress. Ha! I never knew I’d be moving out of Blogspot that fast. Blogspot was good, but there were some features missing that I can only find in WordPress this is why I went self-hosting again. I was thinking of releasing monthly newsletters and initially, I started a google form for subscription but you can now use this one below to sign up!
HUGE FAVOR: Can you please tell me what topics do you want me to cover for the newsletter? Or just any suggestions you’d like to say!
So anyway, what have I been doing during this quarantine period? I can’t possibly say I’m productive since to be honest, it’s been getting harder to work at home than when I’m outside the house. So many temptations! Aside from working part-time, I’ve been reading books and watching Netflix. I may recommend some movies, series or kdramas to watch on my next blog post because apparently I’ve watched too many! I also tried doing a 30 days work out challenge but I keep skipping days. Lol. I’ll start taking it seriously next week, I promise!
Ahhhh, this quarantine situation and the coronavirus sucks. It’s really saddening, to be honest. Even if it’s hard, lets just see the silver lining in everything. And I just hope we all stay safe and healthy. Wash your hands always!
How have you been lately?
