Currently on a Beach in Greece

Yup, I’m on a beach!

April Fools! Gotcha! I’m not on a beach in Greece.

However, now that I think of it, the joke’s on me because I wish I were on a Grecian beach right now 😅  I’m sad I haven’t done much traveling these past three months, but at least my travel-hiatus is within good reason. January, February, and March flew by faster than I expected.

Ready for a 3-month life update while we enjoy beautiful beach photos of places I hope to visit? Let’s go!

January 2017 Recap

Started the year off by reaching my 1,000 subscriber goal on YouTube 😍

I met Jessica MacCleary in real life for the first time and filmed a few videos with her before she left to the Philippines. Who knew we’d end up being the best of friends after that whole day and night together?!

I went to Disneyland on a rainy day. I thought the no-line Disneyland day was great, but I ended up being sick for two weeks after 😷 I was bed ridden and worried I wouldn’t make my deadline to launch this blog, but we made it fam. I launched this blog on the day I originally planned for.

When I was functioning at 100% again, I finalized my recommendation letters for my grad school application and started my writing samples and personal statements.

February 2017 Recap

I started working with a print media company.

My best friend Shannon won Miss Yorba Linda 2017!

Attempted daily vlogging again… but failed.

Reached 2,000 subscribers on February 8th 🎥

Celebrated a “Week of Pagibig” during the week of Valentine’s Day! (Note: pagibig means ‘love’ in Tagalog) I talked about wedding and dating superstitions and how to kilig.

Started working with Pilipino Stickers on a project, stay tuned!

Then, I completely disappeared on social media for the last two weeks of February. Sorry about that 😅 I had to organize my finances, pay for taxes, and turn in my application for grad school. On top of that, it got crazy busy at work so… Exit Scene

March 2017 Recap

Reached 3,000 subscribers on March 14th 🎥 My skin was super clearing up again because I was getting more sleep, so I decided to make a Makeup for Morena Skin video. I finally filmed a Q&A video I’ve been procrastinating for too long.

I thought I did much more in March, because it was madness… but when I look back, I realize the madness happened because of work. While I was working with Offset, business picked up and a lot of my freelance projects piled up out of no where. Being busy is a “good problem” too have though, because I know what it’s like not be busy — and not have a stable income.

Anyway, good news!

I’m blogging again 😄 I always go back and forth about making this blog too personal and journal-y, but I figured there’s no such thing as too personal with me. I also reminded myself of how much I love blogging without boundaries.

This webspace is my space, so I could create and share whatever I please. All haters can leave and all online friends can stay here, and be positive and celebrate life with me.

Hope you enjoyed the life update! I’ll be back later tonight to tell you all about my work as a freelance photographer with the City of Garden Grove.

Until then…

lots of virtual hugs,

      Bettina! 😍 I’m glad you enjoy my recaps. I always feel like no one is really interested and I’m talking to myself when I write these kind of super personal posts, but your feedback finally makes me feel like I’m talking to no one.
