It feels like it has been months since the last time I updated my blog and posted something like this. The thing is that I got so busy with internship and other stuff and it made me misses my blog more. So here is the list of the things that happened recently that keeps me going; busy, and happy.
5 weeks of the internship is C R A Z Y. I have been working as a graphic and web designer to a digital marketing agency in Makati and my life has never been the same as before. I got to wake up at 5 AM, leave the house at 6 AM so that I will not be trapped in usual EDSA traffic during rush hour, arrive at Makati at 7 AM, and then wait for my 8-hour working hours. I always go home so exhausted that I do not have any energy left to make some blog drafts or whatsoever. I am basically entering the workforce routine, but so far I am enjoying it.
2. Application for graduation
Last Wednesday, I was able to pay a visit to our school and I was so glad that I got to fill up my application form for graduation. Yes, it means I am going to graduate this April 2017 and I am so happy and excited! I have waited and worked hard for this moment and I felt a little bit of emotional that time when I passed my form. God is always so faithful!
Being so busy and always tired during weekdays makes me miss my free time more, but no matter how badly I want to have my rest day, I just have to wait until Saturday and Sunday comes. The weekend is so precious to me! I literally feel so kilig every time Friday comes and I have no need to set my alarm clock for the next two days because hell yes, I will sleep as long as I want!
4. Spotify premium
Sorry but I just have to add this thing on my list. Plus, binge downloading of my playlist for offline mode.
5. Daily dose of coffee
Yes, I remembered that I mentioned in my post that I am going to have coffee hiatus for 3 months, but then I realized – who do that?! Coffee? Hiatus? I just cannot. I cannot work and function properly without me having a cup of hot coffee. I just could not stay awake and sane without coffee.
Working in a marketing agency as a digital creative means you have to work fast; you need to produce something good in a very limited time because the client needs it and it should be posted on the internet right away. At first, I always feel pressured and anxious because I feel like I cannot produce something good for just a minute, but as I go by, I learned to have an eye in every detail every client needs, thus I could produce and finish projects more than I expected. Yaaay!
Pinterest is one of a genius website; my companion in times of need in creative ideas. If ever you have a Pinterest account, go follow mine (www.pinterest.com/diannekathreenx).
8. Reunited with my girlfriends
I love weekends, right? It was my best friend’s birthday yesterday and we got to see each other to have our usual Saturday night. After a month of not seeing each other because of work and distance, we did a long and fun-filled catch up the entire night.
So that is it; stuff that makes me happy and busy recently. So, what is your life lately? 🙂
