Housekeeping 2013

I have not been able to post articles as often as I would like (which explains why I’ve been sharing my old pieces). I’ve had a lot of work on my plate, which includes all of the challenges and opportunities we all face in different degrees, as well as two very fun (and tiring) stints as a barrista at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. When I have kids, who are undoubtedly going to be amazing, I’m going to make sure they spend a good amount of time ushering at church and doing barrista work. I want them to appreciate the importance of work, of service, of being humble. I don’t want them to become entitled divas that keep taking from everyone around them but still feel entitled. There’s way too many divas and too few servants.

I’ll finally be posting that article I committed about parenting this week.

My articles take time. It’s not like I just sit down and crap one out. Usually, other than my poetry and short thougthts, articles are written over a span of days, weeks, and even months, and a few, have spent more than a year as a draft. I have so many unfinished articles, stories, poems, and songs, many of which I no longer intend to finish given the change of views and circumstances.

Thank You! = Moleskine
I would like to convey my sincerest thanks to you for being so kind as to read, share, tweet, make instagram photos, comment, and even send gifts! I cannot realistically thank all of you individually but I try to thank, retweet, and respond to as many of your messages as possible.

To make it even more fun for you, I’m bringing back my Moleskine a month gift. Every month, I’ll look through the comments on my blog and choose my favorite one. The person who gave that comment wins a Moleskine notebook from me.

Why Moleskine? Because it is my favorite notebook despite its being overpriced in the Philippines. I’ve been using them for years now and it’s nice to see these matching black notebooks stack up.

Needless to say (but I’m saying it anyway), I’m only going to choose from those who comment with a name and email so that I can contact the person who won. Anonymous comments, though appreciated, won’t be included.

Thank you again for following my blog. I hope my articles inspire you to glorify God, to find pleasure in Him, and to live the life He has given you to the fullest.
