Many of us are afraid of changes, but whether we like it or not, change is the only constant thing in the world.
So what’s with the unannounced hiatus, you ask? I’ve went through a lot in the past few months, more of good than bad times, thankfully, that I hardly touched my social media accounts because you know, “I’m living life”. Haha Nah, not quite! Anyway, let’s catch up? Here are some of the things that kept me busy lately.
Let’s start with the obvious — my blog’s theme. Actually, I create themes either when I’m bored or letting stress out. I would take a few hours for it especially when my creative juices are active. However, most of the times, I would not finish one theme because I would suddenly think of another idea that isn’t matched with the current theme so I’ll just scrap it and start a new one. Haha.
Changing theme is one of the things that motivate me to get back to blogging. I know I’m not the only one! :) Having a new theme feels like you’re starting fresh, right?
What do you think of the new theme? :)
Yes, I have cut my hair a lot of times before but not to its shortest especially when it already grew too long, almost reaching my waist.
I have told a few friends about this plan but they haven’t really taken it seriously because they know it’s hard to grow a long hair. But seriously, it’s harder for me to maintain it. Haha. Gerald even told me I look like I’m not being compensated well at work because I can’t even manage to take my hair to a salon for a treatment. I’m lazy, I always reason out. Haha.
So a few days after our trip to Boracay, I had my hair cut. When my friends saw it, they asked me, “Sigurado kang for a change lang? Wala kang pinagdadaanan?” Hahaha, I’ve expected that but what’s unexpected is when a friend asked me, “Part ba yan ng quarter-life goals mo?”. For a second, I didn’t know what to answer. I really don’t have specific “quarter-life goals”, but maybe getting my hair cut short is a part of one of my goals — change.
Note: This photo was recently taken, so it already grew a few more inches. Just imagine how short it was five months ago. :)
I took a brave step towards getting out of my comfort zone. Few weeks ago, I left my company where I stayed for more than three years, to take a new job in another company. Though it was a difficult decision, considering also the fact that it was my first job, I think it’s about time to move on.
In my stay in the previous company, I’ve gained a lot of knowledge and experience that I know I’ll bring to my next journey. Thanks to everyone who helped me along the way.
Honestly, it was scary, but at the same time, I feel challenged. I’m already on my third week at my new work, yet my workstation is still bare and I don’t have my pedestal yet to keep my things. So they’re on my desk for now. Hehe.
I hope that I did the right decision and will continue to grow in this new chapter I’ve taken.

I know these changes won’t easily sink in and the challenges will be tough but these are all for the better, not only for me but also for the people around me. Wish me luck? :)
