Since leaving my job at VR Inc., I’ve been through a rollercoaster of events and it’s only been a week! My close friends know how random my days can be so they’re used to me suddenly disappearing off the face of the earth and resurfacing elsewhere. But of those of you who are still getting to know me, allow me to give you an idea what a “normal” week is like.
Saturday night: Booked a flight to Legaspi City to see my mom (happening the following Monday)
Saturday was my Mom’s birthday and I could feel through the phone that she wanted me to visit her before the big trip. After checking and comparing prices, I bought a plane ticket for the following Monday (the 15th).
The hardest part of leaving Manila is dropping off Elvis and Allie at my sister’s (that and leaving my sister behind as well). They always always know when I’m leaving Manila because they get extra clingy and have really long faces when it’s time to shut the door.
I never talk about my day job; I guess I’m just a private-person like that. But since August 2015, I’ve been working at Vania Romoff Inc. which ended this week.
And before you ask: No, there is no vacancy at Vania Romoff Inc.! I already found and trained a perfectly capable replacement to take over my duties. But if you are interested in applying, you can send your resume to email@example.com so that you can get an email if in case something opens up.
There’s still alot to do for the blog such as make past blog posts more accessible to readers and upload more content (like more pretty pictures) which I intend to do so don’t worry!
Besides my creative projects, film photography and body issue post, I will be posting more about my actual day-to-day life (in my attempt to keep my New Year’s Resolution which is to share more). I have a post coming soon about my job at Vania Romoff‘s so if you’re interested in working in fashion, this is a post you won’t want to miss.
This is the biggest commitment that I’ve made to the blog and to my future “online presence.” Ralf and I are planning a couple of things for when we go to the United States so FINGERS CROSSED THAT IT WILL PUSH THROUGH. We’ll be leaving in September and will be travelling all over the USA!
“I have sort of a Zen body philosophy, I’m sort of like: we’re one weight one day, we’re one weight another day, and some day our body just doesn’t even exist at all! It’s just a vessel I’ve been given to move through this life. I think about my body as a tool to do the stuff I need to do, but not the be all and end all of my existence.” – Lena Dunham
As a part of my 2016, I present my first swimsuit photo in 2 years and a new hashtag #loveyourbody. I’ve spent the past 18 months or so comparing my body to what it used to be and as an attempt to change that mindset once and for all, voila!
Stop kidding yourself. No matter how many lies you make up about the kind of life you live or the kind of person you are, the web that you’ve woven will unravel and reveal the ultimate truth: that you’re a sham.
To live authentic is the ultimate struggle in this 21st century, self-entitled, millennial world.
