I Don’t Know About You But I’m Feeling 22!

I'm Feeling 22 - Richel Vergara

I turned 22 a little over a month ago and you bet I sang along to Taylor Swift’s 22 all day. It was a fun day and I got the much-needed four days off from work to recharge. I have a few ideas on what to write about it – how I celebrated my day to what I learned from the past 22 years, etc.

Then when I was going through my digital files, I decided to share some old photos and highlight 22 events in my life. So this is me looking back to how the past 22 years how been and how I am so lucky to have the life that I have.

Money Diaries: Night Shift

Money-Diaries

Since June this year, I have been consistently writing down how much I spend every day among other things. Seeing it written down on my daily journal makes me reconsider my spending habits and lets me see just where I spend so much money and how to cut back. If you guys remember, I made a personal finance blog months back but maintaining two blogs is so hard, so I’m incorporating that to my personal blog. I’ll be sharing my financial diaries occasionally – maybe when I have some events affecting my finances.

Staycation Vol. 1: Fort Victoria, BGC

Staycation - Fort Victoria

Have you ever been in one of those moods where one day, you’re cool as a daisy, and the next you’re stressed about everything and nothing at the same time? Maybe it’s because I’m experiencing quarter-life crisis, too. Since the start of the year, I’ve been planning a staycation to relax and just chill and not have to do chores. At the same time, my high school best friends and I are planning to have a summer outing. Knowing how hard it is to do an out of town trip that actually happens, I suggested we just do a staycation. They agreed.

Hungry Saturday at Bonifacio High Street

Bonifacio High Street

I did some changes on my blog for the past two weeks, if you haven’t noticed. The biggest one is the blog make-over. I had my blog theme changed – huge thanks to Kai! I changed my blog timeline from Lifestyle and Travel Blog to Personal and Travel Blog. I messed around with a few things here and there like my sidebar, header, footer, and about me page – but yes, some things will still be changing. What you haven’t seen is that I will also be changing a few things about my future (and even past) contents. I’m going for a more personal route now, and I’m not just gonna be talking about my major travels now. So, buckle up, friends, my future posts will be like… this one.

Life Goals Personal

2017 + First Quarter Goals

First Quarter Goals

Like most people, I tend to list down ‘resolutions’ or ‘goals’ every start of the year. And like most people, sometimes I go overboard and write down a bunch of things that just wouldn’t be all accomplished within a year. Or things that are far too vague that I have no idea how it would be considered ‘accomplished’. So for the past few days of 2017, I listed and re-listed my goals, getting them down to a pretty manageable and realistic count. I’m pretty happy with the end result and am excited to work on them for this year.
