5 Things I’m Grateful For in 2019

It’s that time of the year to reflect about the things that I’m grateful for. Although 2019 gave me lots of heart breaks, I’m going to start 2020 with an appreciation post for all the good things that happened last year.


The Lord has blessed not only me but all the members of my family. 2019 is the year of achievements. Karlo got high grades in MMMA. Karl became one of the topnotchers in the Licensure Exam for Agriculturists. Karlee won in a mural painting contest. My mom and dad didn’t get sick this year. I’m just happy that we are complete.

Things I'm Grateful For


I don’t classify myself as a friendly person. I prefer few close friends over large circle of friends. I’m really busy so I rarely go out with my childhood friends but I make sure to attend the important events of their lives.

Besides my childhood friends, I’m also grateful for my college friends, and blogger friends. I love how they are available whenever I need someone to talk to.


I’m a teacher by profession. However, I don’t really practice the formal classroom setup ever since I came back to Philippines. I’ve been teaching IELTS/TOEFL for the past two years now. My life with MedPro International has been great. The bosses, colleagues, and salary are good! I couldn’t ask for more!

Things I'm Grateful For

Besides my teaching job, I also work as Sangguniang Kabataan Secretary. I’m glad that I can use my skills to serve the community.

It really feels good do what you love. It also great to love what you do.

Failed Relationships

My boyfriend for four years left me. It’s a long and sad story that deserves a separate blog post. Kidding. This year, I started using dating apps to find a permanent travel buddy. I work at home so I’m not really much exposed to other people. I only get a chance to meet people whenever I travel. It’s great to get to know the stories of various people using the dating apps.

Things to Do In Baguio

I’ve been fooled a lot of times. It’s my fault I trust the wrong people easily. In the past months, I keep on finding myself dating people who are in a relationship. I stop as soon as I figure it. I needed to investigate more before asking people to travel with me. LOL.

In the process of dating people, I got a chance to know more of myself. I now know what kind of person I want, and what I want to do with my life. You see, I want to thank those people for making me wiser and stronger.

Originally, the fourth thing I’m grateful for is the travel opportunities I had in 2019. I’m also thankful for all the travel pictures taken by those human tripods. I’ve been to Japan and Korea last year. In addition, I also get the chance to explore some places in the Philippines like Baguio, Bataan, Baler, Laguna, Rizal an many more.

RIP sa lahat ng travel pictures na di ko na pwede iupload. HAHA! Sana this year makapag-upload na ko ng tunay na couple pics!
