  • ADVENTURES WITH A (DYING) DOG

    1.21.15-I-Took-My-Dying-Dog-on-a-Bucket-List-Adventure1-590x442

    This one made me weepy this morning. Girl finds out her bestfriend and roommate -- a 160-lb English Mastiff has terminal bone cancer and only has a few months to live. So armed with a bucket list of adventures she would like to share with her dog, they go off on canoe rides, road trips, visits to both busy spots and quiet spaces and, finally, spend a last day together by the ocean in Maine, where she finally finds peace and acceptance. This is real love, people.
  • THE HEALING POWERS OF KEEPING A JOURNAL

    N-JOURNALING-large570

    I still keep a journal despite having a blog. No matter how spill-all-my-guts-out open I may seem, there are many things I do and think that I'll just never tell. I've always thought it kept me sane to be able to express myself without fear of being censored or criticized. Whenever I pick up an old journal, even one from my 13-year-old self I realize that as much as I've changed so much is still the same. I just know how to dodge bullets faster and better.

  • WRITING YOUR WAY TO HAPPINESS

    20WELL-articleLarge

    Which is why I've decided to keep this blog around, at least for a little while longer. I've always picked up a pen (or sat in front of a keyboard) any time I needed to make sense of my world; writing allows me to get into my head and get all my thoughts out without having to worry about how ridiculous I sound (that's where the editing comes in).

  • HOW TO BECOME A WRITER
    This was lovely. The post is by a novelist who was asked how to encourage a young writer. It sounds eerily like the story of my life -- now all I need is to keep reading and keep writing (and, okay, start submitting). From: M Molly Backes' blog, 07/12/11
  • THE "PERFECT" FEMALE BODY

    Greatist_body

    Every day at work I see all kinds of female bodies: athletic, boyish, curvy, voluptuous, natural, enhanced, preteen, post-baby, postmenopausal -- thousands of different bodies I've seen up close and personal in my lifetime. This infographic shows that the description of the ideal female body changes every decade or so, going back hundreds of years. I hope that soon we define the "perfect" body as one that is simply healthy and functioning; that what matters is that we're comfortable in our own skin. From: Greatist, 01/15/15

Tito MELVYN

...putz around in the freezer??
I thought all along you were still doing relocations...hmmm. I just saw you 2 months ago so I guess there must have been changes. Regards to your hubby. And it was nice to see again after so many years.

Hey Gigi,
I have been reading your blog off and on for about a year or so, whenever my schoolworks not killing me. I love love love it!!! And I also know how multi-talented and wonderful you are. (Trust me you can tell a whole lot from the way a person writes:)) So that's why I say this, hold your chin up high and never ever forget that you are F-A-N-T-A-B-U-L-O-U-S! I know you'll be great where ever you are!!! Loads of good wishes and xoxoxo's coming your way!!!

P.S. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

hey gigi :) i love how you always look at things -- so very refreshing! enjoy the new environs and keep on writing!

sistah #1

sneakers, huh? i suppose you could start color-coordinating them with your work shirts to stay fashionable :)

defiance

gd luck :)

changes take time =)

Stace

Yes, luv, no matter what: rock those pretty undies! xoxo

Gigi

Mell - O sige na ng, "ate" na ako! :) hehe, thanks for the hug -- after these last two days, I sure needed one!

Melvyn - O yeah! Not just "putz" around -- I actually stayed inside one and nearly froze to death yesterday. But can I tell you one thing I love about my job? It makes me appreciate ALL the other people who have it. :)

Iheartmakeup - Love your name! Thank you so much!!!

Cathy - My husband really can't believe that I do what I do now, so he's actually dropped by a couple of times already just to see me in action (doesn't even tell me he's there!).

Sistah#1 - I was thinking of buying a pair of Doc Martens and making them fashionable again. Sneakers aren't sturdy enough and my ankles/soles really hurt right now. What do you think? :)

Defiance - And change is always good! At least I think so. :)

Stace - Oh man. And the more of a boy I look like on the outside, the more I need my La Perlas on the inside. Don't you agree? (PS: you gotta drop by work...remember how I said they grew them tall and strong in OC? Well, now I finally have proof!!!)

cathy

g, it seems like what you do has some sort of "routine" -- am I right? i can relate -- a year ago i was doing something very routine,so unlike me, and i stuck with it for a year until i "found" myself :) enjoy this period. it will bring you to where you need to go :)

Gigi

Thanks Cathy! One of the things I'm enjoying right now is that things are pretty simple and uncomplicated -- I just do what I need to or what I'm told to do. The weight of the world isn't on my shoulders and when I'm doing something repetitive I'm actually deep in thought.

GAGA ABOUT

  • LISTEN: "Pluto" by Chamsom

    Boong-

    I don't have to understand Korean to love this song, although I think it's about a person who was in a rocky relationship that ended but still feels deeply for her former lover and is feeling lonely tonight. "You're like a little star that's far away from me and keeps disappearing." I suppose the title -- Pluto used to be known as the ninth planet from the sun but now isn't even considered one -- might provide a bit more context to the song's meaning. Spotify
