I could actually sit the whole day and write about stuff but…

… my working hours was a hinderance for me to achieve this. 😦

HI!! How are you? I came here to realize I was a year away from this page.

But now, since I lay low (or should I say ‘resigned’) from my job, I hope I can patch things up and focus on some things I missed. (And one of those is writing).

As I grow older (lol), I appreciate this mid-night thoughts even more.

Now, I am reflecting about what I really want in my life particularly in my career (where I can grow more and grow old with it).

This dilemma made me more confused and frustraed.

I am seeking an advise on how and/or where can I be paid to travel.

A nugget of your wisdom is highly appreciated.

‘Till soon,

My grown-up new year’s open letter

“Don’t think about the past; don’t worry ’bout the future. Just live in the moment.” – Alicia Keys, (Through It All, 2010)

Before this year ends, I would like to express how thankful I am to the people who made me laugh and cry (out of laughter), who have contributed in my growth as a person, who made time to know me instead of judging me, who made me feel loved (even it’s not my worth), who shared their talents, ideas, knowledge, interest, and passion about everything. Words are not enough on how much thankful I am that God has paved the way for us to meet and be together either for a short and long term.

I hope and pray that as this chapter ends, the next year will be filled with strength and perseverance as we all move forward. I wish you may endure whatever obstacles in life you might encounter. As an imperfect person, I cannot promise anything but whenever you need me, please do not hesitate to approach me.

To whoever hates me in whatever reason:

I’ll get this straight — I will not give you the gift of hate. I refuse to hold grudges. If ever I have offended you in any way, please forgive me. And if ever you hate me because you’re just a pure hater, you’re not worth my time. I just thank you for adding up a spice in my life. 🙂

Whoever you are reading right now, I am thankful that you’ve been a part of my 2015. ❤

Jann in a nutshell

Hi! As I promised to do my best to update this blog, here I am again. So before I gonna share some stories, let me share a bit of my self first to you.

I am Jann and basically I am just Jann who enjoys being alone with books, a cup of coffee, and taking photos with my cellphone and/or camera.

I am not really into sweets. So if you’ll gonna come with me in a coffee shop, you’ll gonna have a sweet treats!

Of course I am not that loner. I do have buddies whom I can share my time for fun, food, interests, sentiments and more to mention. Did I told you that I LOVE to travel? Yep, I do.

Yes I love to write. However, because of my hectic work schedule, I can’t barely find time to visit this site. So today I am thankful that this day-off gave me the opportunity to write these things down.

What’s your story? I am looking forward for the next time and write more stories and/or share random, interesting finds. Thank you for your time and see you around! ❤

Holla! how you have been? Time really flies fast especially when you are busy on work. Yes, I am now working in the aviation industry and with that, I can’t barely find time to update my blog.

At this point, I am thinking on what stories to tell you — because I have lots of stories to tell 🙂 but for the mean time I just dropped by to say that I missed connecting with you and share random stories that you might relate.

Now that 2015 will end, I wish you prosperity and whatever your decision in life I hope that it will lead you to your success.

Again, happy holidays to you!

I am prepping for something this coming 2016… 🙂

What stories you want me to share? Please, don’t hesitate to drop your suggestions. ❤

Beating my blogging blues

Out of boredom and probably doesn’t understand what to post anymore, I thought of making another blog where I can write about what I passionately love — TRAVEL! Please visit my newly made site. So far I have posted two entries and I am still digging some photos of my previous and arranging the recent travels. Would you mind checking my newly curated blog? 🙂 Suggestions and constructive criticisms are welcome for improvements. Looking forward to post more and I hope you will enjoy my “other”page. Von voyage! ❤

Flashback Friday

I am done with my internship and now I am looking forward as embark the journey in my senior college. I enjoyed and I’ve learned so much, of course. I’ve met several people who later became my friends and I’ve met this someone who later became special to me.

On my first day, I notice someone who sits in the right corner with his glasses on, busy writing something. At his young age, ( he’s just two years older than me actually,) they say he’s the _______. Unfortunately, I haven’t got the chance to befriend him. He is cute though, but his silence makes me feel intimidated. I don’t really why I can say that he’s special when it is just my first day…

He’s just there, on the right corner, with his glasses on, writing articles. There are times that I take a glace at him, wishfully thinking he will talk to me. But nothing happens. There are times that I wanna talk to him but he looks like he is not in the mood to talk to somebody. He’s just there on the right corner, with his glasses on, writing articles.

I stare at him while he’s busy in writing until I caught myself smiling alone. There are times that he caught me staring at him. Awkward shall I say, but nah, at least now I know he looks at me too. Sad, it’s all just stare and stare and no talking. He’s just there on the right corner, with his glasses on, writing articles.

On my second week, we, the interns, are assigned in different designations with the practitioners. No, I wasn’t assigned to be with him but be with his buddy. No big deal, it was okay. At least he joined the conversation as his buddy gave me a short briefing on what to do for the next days’ activity. But after, as usual. He’s just there on the right corner, with his glasses on, writing articles.

After I finished the report that his buddy tasked me to do, his buddy called me and asked to sit behind him for some queries. while his buddy showed me the editing, I realized that I was one seat apart from the editor which is ‘him’. lol! I got a little confusion on his buddy’s editing style and ask several questions. When I raise my questions to his buddy, I notice he attentively listens and tries to join the conversation (which I hope he will add more info about my queries and of course, he will talk to me) but he fails to join the convo as his buddy spontaneously do the talking so he’s just there on the right corner, with his glasses on, continued writing articles.

Our last week is here and the end is near. Still, no talking. Just glance and stares and vice versa. So I just do my thing to keep my cool and to stop my non-sense. Day by day, we’re getting closer and closer but no talking. Wooh, how was that? All my days I haven’t got the chance to talk to him. Not even a single ‘hi’ or a simple ‘good afternoon’ (because he comes in the office in afternoons). because he’s just there on the right corner, with his glasses on, just writing articles.

Until in my last day, friday, which happens to be his day-off, of course he wasn’t on the right corner, editing articles. I wasn’t even able to say my goodbye to him. But I thought it will not makes sense as I haven’t even say my hello to him in the first place. Because the whole time he’s just there on the right corner, with his glasses on, writing articles.
