Where Did My Words Go?

For the past few months, I have found myself unable to blog. Not just blogging, but writing in general.

This year’s NANOWRIMO has been one of my lowest word count in a while. It’s not the lack of time that’s the issue here. I am not bogged down by work as I have been in the previous years.

I blame my lack of discipline and dedication.

You mean there’s more?

There’s another typhoon that is forecast to arrive Wednesday night.

I mean, come on! We just had electricity last Friday night, a lot of areas in our city is still in the dark, and internet is still down for our home, and here comes another storm?

It is said to be stronger that typhoon Quinta, but weaker than the last super typhoon Rolly (Goni). I would be really happy if it evaporates into nothingness somewhere in the Pacific Ocean.

Survived The Super Typhoon

“ROLLY” INTENSIFIES INTO SUPER TYPHOON AND MAKES LANDFALL OVER BATO, CATANDUANES

Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well.

2020 sucks, and before the year ended, we got hit by a Super Typhoon – the strongest one this year.

I’m here to report that me and my family are doing well despite being hit by super typhoon Rolly (international name Goni).

Beaten to The Punch

My wife’s youtube channel achieved a major milestone – monetization.

Which means that her youtube channel beat my blog in terms of income. Hahaha…

Well, it’s not her complete win, you know? I did help out. That milestone was achieved with the help of some blogging skills that I have picked up over the years – attention-grabbing titles, images relevant to the post, and a nice description. It also helps to know Search Engine Optimization so your content will be found by people looking for it.

Well, while my Redbubble shop is still raking in a few sales here and there, I still am ahead in terms of internet income. 😅

Thanks for reading!

Growing A Mustache Is Tough

When it comes to facial hair, I never appreciated having a mustache on my upper lip. I sometimes grow a beard, a short one, at that, because I’d shave it down on occasions where I got to be clean-shaven.

November, aside from being a time where I “attempt” to write a novel, is also the time of the year for Movember – where men grow a mustache to show support for men’s health awareness.

Frankly, when I first heard of it, I just thought it would be a fun excuse to grow a mustache on my face, eh? If asked, why I have hair on my upper lip, I’d reply “Movember!”

With face masks covering our faces when we get out, I got myself a head-start with growing a Mo in October.

Here’s a silly song to motivate you to grow a mustache!

Unfortunately, I found some issues with having a mustache–

  • Eating is messier. I often find my mustache covered in grease or oil, or whatever sauce that my food has when I am chowing down. Easily remedied by a quick wash after eating, or occasional dabs with a napkin. But still, messier compared to not having a mustache.
  • I find it strange having bits of hair touching my lips. I fixed it with a quick trip. Never really had the chance to trim a mustache before.
  • An added grooming item. Yeah, as mentioned above, I have to groom the mustache so my face won’t look too messy. Fortunately, face masks are actually handy for covering it up, so not much issue here! Haha.

Despite my personal issues, and the occasional protest from my wife, I’ll grow this up into November. At least I got a head start!

Inktober Day 1 – Fish and Day 2 – Wisp

Hello everyone!

It’s October, and for me, that means it’s another round of tackling Inktober.

Inktober is an annual challenge where you are supposed to draw art in ink. There are no specific rules – you can draw anything. You can use whatever form of ink media – pens, brushes and ink, even markers, but it got to be ink.

How to Survive This Pandemic

Before I begin, let’s start by saying that I’m pulling this out of thin air as a way to keep my sanity. There’s no rule book or guide or whatever that I’m pulling this from.

We cool? Alright, let’s do this.

To survive, you need to keep in your head that you are not safe. Yes, being complacent about safety will get you killed. Well, in this pandemic’s case, it will get you infected.
