Diary of a Non-Traveller

I wrote this short article for our magazine which we submitted as a project for our Desktop Publishing class:

Travelling was never on top of my family’s priorities, so I guess it is the same reason why I never longed for wandering. Writing this down is hard because the farthest place I’ve been to is Baguio; and it was for my senior retreat in high school.

Or maybe because leaving the country had always been about Mama going abroad for work.

Update for July

Yes, I am still alive. This school year has got me preoccupied. So for blogging’s sake, I am writing right now to share a few changes here and there.

Breana likes seeing her face in pictures.

First off, I had my hair chopped. I got tired of my long, permed locks. Actually, no, it was already drying up so I opted for the shorter hair which, by the way, my friends liked. Though I had my “do” changed weeks before the 27th, the deed also became my way of saying good bye to my 18 year old self. Good bye as well to a lot of things, a shift of my attitude and perception towards studying, my being more mature and taking into considerations people I have yet to classify as important, and driving my self to be more responsible.

Second, I am now an AB Journalism student. I know, I know. This is my third course already. But fate and destiny and God’s plan lead me here. I was kind of hesitant at first but God gave me the strength and courage I asked him to be able to accept what he had laid me to walk through. Some PEOPLE were shocked  and were quick to judge but my FRIENDS were happy that I was going to be part of a department where I excel more and where I do better—writing. You see the difference? Oh, if you what I mean. *wink*

What else? Oh! I took a job offered to me, by a friend for a friend, where I write and get paid. I was doubting, at first, if I can do it because the topic is not that familiar but it was good to go so I accepted it.

Pwede na ba? HAHAHA!

Also, I’ve been getting into sketching and drawing. I joked at my friends that next year, I’ll probably shift to CFAD. Not! Hahaha!

I can’t think of anything anymore. But those are just, maybe, half of the updates I have in mind. But I feel so sleepy already so my brain won’t function much. I just hope they suspend classes tomorrow. Good night! :)
