Love At First Sight

Love is so hard to define or to justify. It’s love … a feeling. How can you justify a feeling?! It’s only shown.

When I first looked into his eyes my heart beat so fast; I was afraid I’ll have a heart attack. I shied my eyes away from his immediately.

Now I feel nervous when I see him; my face reddens, my heart races, my eyes are lowered, my body stiffens, and my feet are no longer functional! It’s one of the most amazing and embarrassing feeling ever!

Every time I wish I don’t bump into him again so that this scene is not repeated and now he’s disappeared.

Why did I think that?! I miss him. Even though, I don’t know him and have never talked to him but I miss that feeling he created in me.

It’s love at first sight.




I realized that I was holding on to something that didn’t exist anymore. That the person I missed didn’t exist anymore. People change.

What Makes Me Smile

Performing a job I am passionate about.     Image                                                  

I know some people have passion from a young age, but my passion arose in my second year of university when I took the risk of taking courses that I had no idea about. One of these courses made my jaw drop; I was awed! That course, that field was exactly what I was looking for since senior year in high school when we began planning for our future. But at that time, I never knew what it was. That passion of mine was Marketing, specifically digital marketing. It’s fun, different and new and it entails working with what my parents consider as “wasting time”. My job is meddling with social media and the web which became as an essential part of my life. Now, I am taking a course about social media management and I am enjoying every second of it! I love it!

Music has always played a role in each and everyone’s life, but I also know that it has and still plays an important role in my life. Without music, I feel empty and lifeless. Music is very diverse and I love to try to listen to new, non-trending music and share them with the world. Simply listening to music is not enough; I also love to dance on it. I feel good and free.

If I miss a day without eating or drinking dark chocolate, I wouldn’t be in a good mood and you wouldn’t want to mess with me. Dark Chocolate is a very essential food in my life, probably because I grew with it. Well, what can I say more…? I mean its chocolate! Who doesn’t love chocolate?!

Doing sports          Image                                                                            

A healthy and natural way to de-stress and energize my body. After all the hard work during the week and all the pressure that is bombarded at you, you come to a point where you are about to explode. I like to take a day off sometimes to do a kind of sports to refresh my mind and feel better.

My college life is routine: I wake up, go to college, go to classes, go to work, meet up with my team to work on projects for the courses and then go home and study. I can’t live like this! It’s too boring and too dull and very exhausting! That’s why I like to participate in activities or clubs to engage myself with something new, challenge my capabilities, and meet new people.

Sometimes, I don’t feel like doing sports. Sometimes, there are things I like to share, I like to say but I just can’t say it to my family or friends. I want to save it somewhere safe for other people looking forward to meet me and that way they’ll have something to refer to. That place is my blog! I love blogging simply because I love it! There are lots of things I can’t share with people by simply saying it; there are some things I need to get off my chest but I don’t know how to talk it out. So, I blog. After around a year of blogging here, I felt much better!

But there are other times, where I like to share or simply talk to family and friends. It makes me happy to feel that there are people who would stick with you for life no matter what!

I don’t watch a lot of movies but if I were to watch a movie, I’d go for a romantic comedy. It’s a triple de-stress method. I smile, laugh and cry.

When I am listening to an amazing talk, I smile.

Babies make me smile no matter what they do. They’re cute and simple.

Taking care of my beauty     Image

I need to take care of my beauty so that it gives me that refreshing, energized, happy look.

I think I am addicted to the beach! I love anything that has to do with the beach.



Detect, Capture and Take it!

I always come upon chances, but there are only a few of them and it would be a shame if I forget about them.


There are a few chances that I ignored because I was either too busy or too lazy to do them and ended up regretting it. But there was this one chance that I decided to forget about it because I didn’t have time but then I took it before it was gone.

A competition from L’Oreal was announced. It was made especially for marketing majors students (like me). I knew this would take a lot of time, because it required a lot of commitment and dedication. I mean we had to develop a product and run it! In the middle of the semester and in the heat of the examinations and midterms, we had to give some of our time to it. So, at first, I told my friend that we can’t do it… just ignore it. But then our teacher in class mentioned it and she was extremely motivational. She said that you are marketing students, and that is exactly what you’ll be working in the future and that is what companies look up to when they hire. Even if we didn’t win, the fact alone that we participated and tried will look fabulous on a CV. So, I immediately talked to my friend and told him that we have to participate before it’s too late. And we did.


It was an amazing experience. First, there were campus finals and we worked our best for it and we passed! They picked 6 out of 25 teams and we were one of the six. I felt good and confident and very motivated and competitive to go on to the next round which was the Nationals. In the Nationals, we had to present our product and build a digital strategy to build awareness and create engagement. We were there that evening, and on that same day I had a very important concentration midterm right before the Nationals. But it was definitely worth it! I mean I had the chance to stand in front of Kiehl’s representative, 2 HR managers, marketing manager and other managers in L’Oreal to show them our hard work! And even though we weren’t the chosen team for international finals, yet it was still a wonderful learning experience better than any course or book I have studied.

It’s an opportunity that would have definitely haunted me, if I didn’t take it. It’s a chance for future job opportunities at well-known companies and L’Oreal. And it’s an achievement to look up to! 

That Song, That Word, That Guy, That Thing … What is it?!

Do you know that feeling when you have something to say to someone and suddenly it disappears? You just become obsessed, standing in your place and waiting for that idea to come back. It’s like it has paralyzed you until you know what it is!

Yeah well I hate it and I have experienced it in so many forms.

1) What’s that song??!!


I know the beat in my head, but when I attempt to sing it out loud, it sounds completely off tune! I don’t know the lyrics, or the artist … just that beat keeps playing in my head. Ugghhh! It drives me crazy… all I can think of is finding out what that song is!

2) When you have an essay exam and you get stuck on that word… hehehe! I just stop there and wait for that word to show up. I can’t continue my exam without that word and even if I still have only 10 mins and I am not half-way through my essay. I just can’t focus anymore; that word has taken all my attention, what is it??!!

Image (that’s me! ;P)

3) When someone asks you about someone you’ve known for a long time but for some reason his name disappeared from your memory at that time. Why now? It’s like what they say these days: ” when you’re looking for something, you don’t find it. When you’re not looking for it, it’s right there.” I get so hooked up, my thoughts are fixed on remembering that person’s name.


4) When I wanted to do something a few seconds ago and just forgot. And try to get my attention now 😛 I can’t! That usually happens when it is a very very very essential thing or idea. Ha!


I try several times to do something else, but I never succeed. I have to know!

I feel like an addictive, obsessed freak; it is a very annoying feeling and so terrible that it exhausts my mind and my soul completely.
