Launching #DBusinessDiaries

After seriously immersing into the world of business for 3 months now, I realized that this is a path less travelled by. It definitely makes sense because all throughout our education from Kindergarten to College and beyond, the mindset has been to study and graduate to land a good job. That’s the normal path while business is definitely unconventional. That is why I can totally understand why it took me 6 years before I officially welcomed the thought of settling down and doing business. Even when I already started my business, my mind was still clouded with doubts; Is this really the right thing to do? Is there stability in business? What will my friends say? I’m already in a good place in terms of my career, am I really ready to give it all up and start fresh? A shiny career in employments looks better. Those were the thoughts that ran my mind. It definitely was not an easy shift in perspective. That is why, I am creating #DBusinessDiaries.

PINGGANG PINOY: Intentionally Eating Healthy

Raise your hand if, just like me, you’re having a hard time eating healthy! *raises hand nervously*

It’s difficult to eat healthy. That’s the truth for majority of the people around the world, and I am one of those people. This dilemma has a lot of factors; we don’t have the time and resources to prepare healthy meals, we don’t know what are healthy meals or perhaps, we don’t target to eat healthy. That’s unfortunate, because in order for us to take care of our health, we shouldn’t just consume any food. We should make sure that we consume the right food and the right amount of it. Fortunately, that’s what we’re talking about in today’s #LifestyleThursday!

Taking My Health Very Seriously

I’ve always been such a hardworker. In college starting at 16, I slept at 6am daily to finish my acads and to manage my 30 active organizations. Countless times in my working life when I clocked in to work at 9am then clocked out at 3am due to heavy overtime work. Living alone, I started not eating healthy as well. Even when I do my passion projects or even when I stay up all night to watch my favorite CDrama, I’ve taken my health for granted. Now, I am slowly feeling the negative effects of a decade of an unhealthy lifestyle. I have physically and mentally degenerated.

27 and Using my Privilege to Pay It Forward

Annually, I usually wrap up my year recounting all the milestones I have achieved and all the dragons that I have conquered. However, I do not want to do that this year. Millions of people died, lost their jobs, and stopped their studies because of COVID-19. I even lost my guy bestfriend, Dave, from it. Many lost their lives, their homes, and their properties to the strong typhoons that stormed PH this year. Many are now drowning from poor mental health. Many are struggling to put food on their tables. And definitely, there are those who are living everyday to survive. I do not want to alienate myself from the struggles of others. If there is one thing that I want to contemplate on now is the fact that I have been greatly privileged and it’s sad that countless people do not have the same privileges that I have.

My Berklee Online Journey

I have unofficially graduated from Berklee College of Music through their online course entitled “Introduction to Music Theory”. While this sounds celebratory and extravagant, I must say that my Berklee journey has resurfaced a lot of the what-ifs of my life. That is why today, other than spilling some tips and tricks to successfully complete a Berklee online course, I will also be confessing my struggles as a frustrated musician because I know that my struggles are not unique. I know somebody needs to hear them, be encouraged by them, and most especially, be enraged by them.
