What's stopping you from starting a blog? I always fail to keep this blog updated, but every few days, I make sure I get to visit my dashboard and read interesting stuff from various blogs I follow. I have been following The Art of Blogging for quite some time, and earlier this morning, I came … Continue reading I Probably Suck at Blogging, But I Write Anyway

I had joined several … Continue reading The Thin Line Between Having To Ask Favors And Dodging Responsibilities
I wish I could eloquently express how exhausting my daily routine is. All I know is I'm always busy, that even taking a shower requires a 10-minute limit. Being a mom of three at only 28 requires strong willpower. I always get caught up in the details of my working-mom life.
