Life Lately / Something personal

Image credit here.   Eurgh. Probably the best way to describe how I feel today is that I’m tired. Bone tired. Today’s been a long day at work. But I’m pretty satisfied about how it turned out. I did three out of five tasks in my to-do list, I managed to study/prepare for my report that’s due after midterms, and I was able to get what I needed. #hellopaydaythankyou I’m actually trying to keep this […]

A letter to the law school freshman.

Dear Law School Freshie, I’m sitting here writing a letter to you, the law school freshman. There was a bit of mental see-sawing before I started to write this post. First things first–I am not a law student. Hear me out–I used to be one. Leaving law school was a difficult decision to make, yet, at the same time, the best one. It isn’t because the passion isn’t there anymore, but I needed to take […]

I’m saying goodbye to law school. And it’s okay.

Yes, it actually is, despite the fact that writing this is the one of the hardest things I’ve had to do. For years, I had my game plan–study law with enough passion to make a candle burn; take the Bar after graduation, and (God willing) pass the Bar, take the oath (at one point, I could recite it in my sleep), and sign in the Roll of Attorneys in front of the Bar Confidant. Sounds […]

Hey baby, it’s okay.

So finally, I took a short trip out of the urban jungle that is Manila. Finally, after almost five years! A little warning: this post will be at the danger of sounding like I’m half-bottle of whining, but I promise, I’ll do my best to make sure it won’t go there. I haven’t been doing at all well lately, emotionally, that is. Well, to be honest, it’s only partly true. I have my good days. […]

Books / Something personal

How are you? How was your Valentine’s Day? Hope it went well. 🙂 This is a book that I’ve been dying to review–but I re-read this book over and over to do this review justice. 🙂 It’s definitely my favourite book at the moment, and it’s been totally worth it to buy on Amazon. Because sadly, it’s not available in book shops in the Philippines. Yeah, I’m talking to you National Bookstore, Powerbooks, and Fully […]

Gifts the student in your life will appreciate AT ANY SEASON

Something personal

  Missed a birthday? Too late for Christmas? Not able to make it for Valentine’s Day? Got a student in your life you need to appreciate? While this post is actually late, one can still give gifts that can be used throughout the year–especially when the recipient is a student! This post was inspired by a memory in law school: it was the season for class Christmas parties and exchanging gifts. One of my classmates […]

Soup du jour: Cream of carrot and celery soup

Something personal / The Chubby Girl's Kitchen

The holidays have come and gone! To be honest, I’m still feeling stuffed, and mind, we didn’t even prepare a lot of food! For Christmas, we had roast chicken (followed Gordon Ramsay’s recipe for roast turkey…but as turkey is a good deal more costly in the Philippines, I made do with a large chicken), pasta (recipe to be shared one of these days), and soup. For soup, traditionally we have a special kind of chicken […]
