This page served as my portfolio for almost one year. I just posted school-related photos, videos and articles. For some positive reasons and changes, I decided to start blogging everything and anything on this page. So from now on, I will be writing and posting things without rules and boundaries but, of course, with fun and morals 😉 Thank you so much for viewing!


December 16, 2012 – I started making the first draft of my manuscript. I worked around 12 hours a day for 5 days.

January 4, 2012 – I got back my first draft. My professor told me to improve my narration about the training profile, change the communication theory I used, and recheck my tenses. I also had few grammatical errors.

January 5, 2012 – I started the second draft.

January 6, 2012 – I finished the second draft as well as the cover page.

January 11, 2012 – Defense. It was awesome. There were three panelists, including my adviser. One of the panelists enjoyed my Prezi presentation very much that she wanted me to give her a copy in CD and if I wouldn’t, she won’t give me grade. The other panelist loved the scheme I used (magazine style) and he requested me to print out my manuscript exactly like a real magazine instead of the standard requirement (hardbound copy).

And here’s the link to my Prezi presentation:

Now, I’m a college graduate and striving to work for magazines!

Live Jesus in our hearts, forever! That in all things, God may be glorified!

Pictorial is also my thing. It can be tiring but fun. I love to show the world how beautiful a person is through my shots.

Last December, my sister asked me to give her son a pictorial for his 7th birthday. It was more exciting for me because I just had a new lens. Unfortunately, we didn’t have a studio so I had to improvise. Oh, and before everything else, I had to re-read particular photography books for reminders. I ordered Sam, my nephew, to play with his little brother so I can capture the best shots but it was the most difficult part. And worst, his smiles were very awkward; it’s like he doesn’t know how to smile naturally. Here are his photos:

I think we still managed it. He’s a handsome kiddo, anyway!

January 2, 2013. Together with my cousins, I went to Tagaytay City. During our break from walking, I initiated a “quick photo shoot” for my cousins (of course, they also forced me to make a pose *sigh*). My lens did it; the bokeh was very nice! I admire taking photos, especially of people, but I don’t like to be the subject (I’m not a poser for crying out loud). Oh yeah, I want to thank my cousins who used my photos as their cover and profile pictures. You guys made me very happy even if I didn’t get any credit. Hahaha 😉
