Wayuu and Mochilla Bags in the Philippines

I first encountered the Mochilla bag from a low key blogger I follow. My attention was caught by the colorful knitted drawstring bag. In my mind, it might be a locally produced bag. I later discovered a local reseller and to my surprise, the bag originated all the way from Colombia.

Beautiful Sunday # 395 - Let it be

I hope my first work week will not dictate my entire year. Otherwise, I can't imagine how many lbs and fine lines I would earn by December. I checked my weight. I saw photos of family reunions uploaded from Christmas to New Year. I can't be worse. But with the outpour of deadlines this month, I don't feel any opportunity for improvement. Last year, I thought of returning to weekend jogging. Nothing prospered. I made another promise, I'll do it after all the deadlines. The deadlines are not eliminated. In fact, they are multiplying. Weekends have become extension of work days. My little consolation, the breaks in between are devoted for sleeping, food delivery and the equally sinful online shopping.

Beautiful Sunday # 394 First for 2020

My holiday break is over. As always, I can't believe how three weeks went so fast. I spent much of my time at home. Unfortunately, rest didn't come easy. I took home tons of work. Added to this the freelance works I've been struggling to complete. In my previous posts, I often mention how life was better back in 2018. Part of me still wishes I can return those years. At the end of the day, I just wanted silence and stillness. Unfortunately, some forces took away that bliss. When the summer of 2019 entered, I realized how life used to be better. It dragged me to battles I never wanted.

New Year 2020

In a few more days I will be back to my usual life. It's back to work, the dream life is over. :p I'm feeling uneasy because of deadlines. The first month of the year are filled with due dates. With the way things are going, January will lead the way for another exhausting year.
