Hi all! My make-up challenge for January was by far the most successful one. Hmmm what does that say about me? Maarte ako. I like it because it makes me less frazzled on weekday mornings. It’s safe to say that I’ve incorporated it in my routine. It’s weird but I now go to work 15 minutes earlier than I used to. Something I couldn’t do with my December Go To Bed Early Challenge! I’m glad that my kaartehan got me somewhere this time.
Now on to February.

I am thankful though to my cousin who introduced me to this amazing thing –the diary. Of course then, I did not think much of how great it was. I just naturally took to it like any introverted kid would. I enjoyed it and the events of my elementary school years seemed just too important not to write them all down. Ah, this is likely one reason why we get reminded to see life through the eyes of a child.

Travelling brings me so much happiness but so does staying at home. Despite not travelling for what feels like forever (just being dramatic, it’s only been a year since my last international trip), I figured that I should learn to appreciate what I have and where I am now.
