If I only had three months left to live, what would I do?

 I’d start by having a grateful heart. I’d be thankful to still be alive, even if I have only three months left, I’d make the most of it. I’d start to look at things differently and appreciate it more. I will start telling people that I love them. Sometimes I forget to say I love you. I tend to overlook saying it because I think that I still have tomorrow. I don’t say it enough because it’s overrated and not cool. I’d tell my parents that I love them and that I appreciate everything they have done for me. I’d tell my sister and brother that I love them and that they have a fruitful and blessed life ahead. I’d tell people I hold grudges against that I love them and wish them the best. I also would like to apologize to people that I may have hurt. Often times I don’t realize that I have already done something that has hurt others because I’m too focused on myself. I let my ego get in the way. It also wouldn’t hurt to hug …

Let’s have coffee

I feel like there’s so much to tell you after going MIA the past couple of days/weeks. How about we spice things up with a list instead? I enrolled myself in a driving school! More details soon because I’m planning to post about it… I am so ready for the 2016 Philippine elections. I finally got my voter’s ID, after seven years of waiting. My submission to Thought Catalog got published. Lost someone. My sidelines/internet schemes for money are doing well? I guess the better way to describe it is, the train is finally moving and it might be slow now but hopefully it will speed up soon. I want to quit my job. I just feel like there’s no more growth for me there. Time to spice things up! My blog finally has a name!!! Welcome to Hello Happiness! I love planning and brainstorming ideas. I’m having a hard time balancing money. 🙁 With bills, installment payments, savings and everyday expenses… I can do better than this. Why is this happening? I re-categorized most of …

Move On, March!

March has been the most difficult month of the year so far. I lost someone dearly this month and even if I haven’t cried a river, I miss him and life isn’t the same without him. What’s worse is the fact that I am saddened by the sadness of the people he left. 🙁 I really don’t want to talk about it too much because I want this space to be positive and honestly I want to keep some things private. I guess all I am comfortable sharing with you guys is the fact that I lost someone and it sucks! In other news, I submitted my blog post to Thought Catalog and it got published! Yey. I get to slash off a bullet in my 30 Things To Do Before Thirty list! And how about that, my own ‘author page’ in their website! It was also amazing to see someone edit my work. Here is the original post and here is the one published. There’s always room for improvement and I’m excited to submit …

Finance Talk: 7 Simple ways to cut down your daily expenses

Remember that time I told you that I had so much fun writing down Finance stuff? Here’s an extra Finance post to start your Saturdays! * * * * * Let me start this post by saying I am guilty of over spending every single day. Even if I have a weekly and daily budget, it is so easy to go over it and end up relying on my boyfriend to pay for my unnecessary wants just so I can say I am still within my “weekly budget”. Writing that down makes me feel so embarrassed. Thank goodness my boyfriend is the best and he still loves me even if I sometimes leech off of him. LOL. On the bright side, I’ve been trying to change this awful habit of mine by cutting down my daily expenses. The idea is if I cut down my daily expenses, I will always be within my budget no matter the situation. Let me share with you 7 fool proof & simple ways to cut down daily expenses. Walk If …
