Based on the title, I think it's obvious what this post is all about. But just in case you haven't picked the pieces up, this post will be all about body image. My body image issues which is something I've been struggling with for years. As I'm typing this post, I'm still facing the same problem although not as intense as it used to be.


14. I Need To Be Thinner

If you're new to my blog, chances are you have no idea what course I took in college, what my major was or any of those things. Quick heads up, I graduated from design school, majoring in Interactive Digital Media which isn't entirely graphics design but isn't completely different either — which I'll explain later. As such, I have a few suggestions (or tips and tricks, if you must) on what to expect or how to handle things like assignments and deadlines when you're currently enrolled in or are thinking about pursuing arts and design in college.


College 101: How To Survive Design School

If you follow me on twitter, you probably knew about how I've been binge-reading lately. Binge-reading? That's good, isn't it? Yes, of course. The thing is, I haven't been reading a lot for years; the last time I activated my bookworm mode was, what...3-4 years ago? I was a quick and focused reader when I was still in high school. Fast forward to college, I haven't been able to do that. This year, I'm willing to change that and make reading as part of my daily routine. I, too, have several tips on how to stay focused when it comes to doing it.


How I (Try To) Read More

I generally don't write this kind of post, at least not anymore. Beauty related posts aren't my specialty and there are tons of these out there so mine probably won't make any significance. Then again, let's make an exception and allow me to act like one of your cliche lifestyle bloggers by sharing with you some of my favorite and affordable skincare products, starting with cleansers first.

A couple days ago I received an email from a media convergence offering me the chance to collaborate. A year ago I received an email asking me if I'd like to monetize my blog by placing ads banner on my blog. To say I was surprise is an understatement because I never thought I'd receive such offers. I mean, my blog isn't that awesome, you know? I end up abandoning the offer for placing ads on my blog. And allow me to explain why.


13. Thoughts On Ads

For someone whose specialty or focus is dedicated to illustration design, I sure always seem to stumble on amazing illustrators online. I personally am not very good at illustration even though I can draw more than just a stickman figure but don't tell me to do some digital painting because I can't. still, I love discovering amazing artists online, especially one that does digital painting with mad, god-like skills!
