What is this blog for without my random chit chat? 🙂
I am writing this while outside watching Nate playing with two of his friends, Jayden and James, who are brothers. Ah! The life of little kids! They only worry about food, friends, and fun!
We are renting in one of the subdivisions here in San Mateo, Rizal for 3 years now. One thing I like about this place is the neighborhood. Nate has a lot of friends here. The place is quiet, there’s enough space to run and play, and on top of that, there’s a basketball court right next to the house we live in.

I call myself a vampire – I seldom go out. You might be thinking how come I’m still alive when I’m not getting enough sunlight, LOL! I go out maybe once to thrice a week – mostly during weekends and errands day online. The neighbors were asking why I don’t go out and mingle with them often but later on, they got used to it.
About one or two years ago, I liked going out and joining blog events. However, that changed lately. If not for important reasons, I’d really rather just start at home – no traffic, no need to dress up, no expenses. When I was younger, I used to be very sociable. I guess that’s how it is when you’re getting old? I don’t know! LOL!
And I really consider myself old at 29, ‘no? HAHA.
As a Sunday School teacher, I’m happy to be able to be an “ATE” to our church youth. Some of them would chat with me and tell me about their problems. I pray for them, give them advice, and let them know I’m here for them. However, sometimes, I feel ineffective. It seems like none of my advice is applied. Also, the problem seems repetitive. I would then start questioning myself: “Am I a good teacher/leader/adviser? It seems like none of my advice was taken seriously by these youngsters?”
I am not the one with the longest patience, so there are times that I’d give up. I know I shouldn’t, which is why I need God’s help. The Bible would then remind me of how hard-headed the Israelites were and God never gave up on them. He loved them even more!
I should always keep that in mind.
Social Media Life
The social media is taking up too much of my time. Recently, I’ve been thinking about deactivating my Facebook account. But how can I do that when I blog promotion relies on social media? Most of my readers are from Facebook. So, I’m still trying to figure out how I can do this without completely abandoning my blog.
Nakakapagod din laging nasa social media, ano? The only problem is most of my contacts are now on the same platform I want to deactivate. In fact, I don’t load my prepaid sim anymore except during power outage and internet interruption.
I really don’t know where this feeling is coming from but lately, I really just want out of social media. It’s probably because of hormones.
A Peaceful Life in the Province
For a while now, I’ve been wanting to go home and live a provincial life. Ah, if only the internet connection is now available in our hometown, there wouldn’t be any problem. Alas! It’s not available yet.
I miss the sound of the roosters in the morning, the cool breeze, the trees, and the farm view. All for free! I bet it would be a peaceful, simple life and cheaper lifestyle. I’m not for the city. I don’t belong here. But this is where we live now. This is where God puts us to live and we’re here for a reason.
So, may God’s will be done in our lives.
The Plan (Trial and Error)
In less than two months, Dane will be home for good. Finally, we’ll be together again! Nate will have a father he can play with again. I’ll be more challenging when it comes to financial aspect but that’s NOTHING compared to the joy of living together.

We’re praying for a new venture we’re hoping to start – an online store. We don’t know how it’ll turn out but we’re giving everything to God. Hoping He would bless it. However, if it’s not for us, I hope He will give us the knowledge to figure out what the right business for us is.
So help us, God!
This, then, is the end of my random chit chat. 🙂
