Life Recently Vol. 14

September is my birth month and I’m gonna turn 26 soon. It’s amazing how many changes happen in even just a year. I was in a sort of quarter-life crisis a year ago, lost, confused, not knowing which path to choose. Now, I’ve never been so sure about everything. I love what I do, I’m surrounded by awesome people, I get to travel whenever I want, I have two cute furbabies, and I’m blessed with a man who loves me unconditionally. Life is beautiful.

READING// I haven’t read a book in awhile but I have been reading posts on Facebook groups which could be helpful for my freelance career. It’s nice being in a community who shares the same passion as you. I miss reading books. I’m still waiting for Colleen Hoover’s new book release.

LISTENING// I am in love with Angelica Hale’s singing voice! I hope she’ll win this year’s America’s Got Talent. Been also loving songs by Dua Lipa and Lorde lately. I have also been loving Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlists.

WATCHING// I have seen all seasons of Big Bang Theory! I thank my cousins and boyfriend who introduced me to this tv show. I haven’t heard of it before, I must have lived under a rock!  I can’t wait for the next season! Been also watching documentaries and movies on Netflix. Any recommendations?


PLAYING// Yonder, The Cloud Chaser is such a visually stunning game. I’m stuck in a stage, though and I have been becoming I’ll play it again if I’m not busy. Also, love the game INKS and I’ve been playing around with Procreate App. I wish I have an iPad Pro with an Apple pencil to use it with or just a talent for drawing and painting 

FEELING// Thankful  Working from home makes me bored sometimes but there’s always a coffee shop near my place if I need to be productive. I also miss hanging out with my friends, life gets busy but that’s okay.

EATING// Less fast food, more homecooked meal.

PLANNING// On how to get more clients. I have a lot of free time and I want to spend it working rather than doing nothing. I need to fund my future travels, and literally my future. 

WRITING// I’m currently managing my work using the Trello app. Very useful.

LEARNING// I’ve been attending online courses on digital marketing. I want to learn more about this skill. I also want to know more about Web Developing. I know it’s gonna be hard but I just find it interesting. It’s always a good idea to invest in yourself.

What have you been up to lately?

    I’m pretty sure everyone has heard of the Big Bang Theory! I own seasons 1 – 4 but haven’t gotten around to watching the recent seasons! Congrats on watching them all! Will have to try out Trello.

    belated happy birthday, alissa! (it’s funny that every time i type your name down, it feels like i’m typing mine but with a different spelling. even though mine’s spelled ‘Elisa’, the way it’s pronounced is sort of similar to ‘alissa’ just with the E sounding like the alphabe E in the word “hEy” …i don’t know why i’m saying this ridiculousness lol)

    ah, you work freelance? i’ve always wanted to be a freelancer. i hate commuting and i’d rather do my stuff at home and get paid for it, lol. but i’m not at that stage yet so i gotta collect all the experiences to beautify my resume before i can actually be a freelance designer.

    Belated happy birthday, Alissa! Where do you take your online courses? I’m planning on taking a few myself so I can try working freelance when my schedule clears up a bit.
