Hi! My name is Diane and as you can see, I want to write

As a kid, I knew that I will grow up pursuing a career in the creative field. Back then, all I wanted was to draw. I was sure of pursuing Fine Arts in. Somewhere along the way, drawing and sketching left me. I started to love writing. Another unexpected and unexplained phase happened again. I found myself pursuing a different path. Surprise! I ended with a degree in Economics. 

I always thought that Economics would be limited on numbers. Along the way, I realised that my quantitative degree still provides an opportunity to be creative in a different domain. Still equipped with my love for writing and my hard earned degree, I landed at the analytics team of a very old institution in Manila, Philippines. I was given the opportunity to pursue a career in writing. It's just that this time, I write stories behind numbers, projections and performance reports. Boring? Yes,  I find excitement, challenge and money from things that bore everyone.

Aside from my day job, I literally and figuratively switch shoes to become a college instructor. I have to emphasise my love for shoes particularly with ballet flats.  On weekends and weeknights, I squeeze in the freelance works and blogging. 

I work more than eight hours a day, sleeps late and often ends up rushing the next day. I take different forms of public transportation everyday and I have a lot of stories of misadventure to tell.  I maintain a junk food diet. I love hamburgers, french fries, thin crust pizza, fastfood fried chickens, and potato chips. Though most of the time, I get worried about health and aging. 

This blog showcases my experiences in life. I write and share stories about my family, friends, travel adventures, food discoveries, book reviews, shopaholic attacks, teaching career, postcards, monotonous yet challenging office job  and all my short lived yet memorable experiences. 

Once in a while, I share my dreams and thoughts about that childhood passion that left me. They say that we can find our true calling by recalling the things that made us the happiest, back when we don't have to worry about paying bills and all those grown up struggles. 

Thank you for dropping by and welcome to the virtual portal of my  life.
