SS501 Series [Stories #2]

Note: You can read this for new reference for University of Phoenix.

I am always going back to my first Kpop love ~ Kim Hyung Jun. Last Saturday, on the workshop, Ate Jen mentioned KPop and Fanfiction. I was planning recently to turn SS501’s fanfic to something like A Piece of Her (my prev fanfic for Hyung Jun and the gang) but I realized I won’t be able to print that one since that would be tagged as a plagiarized work because I don’t get permission from them to use their name. So… I decided I will write the plots I have in mind before about them as fanboys but with a different twist. I am planning to write this series on the third quarter of 2017. That would be around June.

So, if you’re a secret lover of KPop and SS501 I am sure you’ll love this one. Please stay tuned cos I’ll be updating this blog posts from time to time.

Vera Series [Stories #1]

Note: I am having fun reading articles like this overnight lol

Someone asked me when I am going to finish all of my ongoing stories and honestly, I can’t answer that question coz I am sooo busy right now and I am currently working with a new major novel entitled Somber Lights.

However, of course, like what the title says, there will be a series of stories that I am going to write under VERA’s. If you haven’t read Dying Hope yet, Vera is a band and there are 6 members. Luke (from Dying Hope), Myko, Yka, Alexa, Jazz, and Kiko. Since I have finished Dying Hope, I might write the remaining five stories for the band members by March next year (if time permits). 

I am really rooting for Myko’s story because yeah, the band has been checking on him and Alexa but of course, I am unpredictable. I can kill him with a dagger and leave Alexa weeping all day long lol, kidding. But yes, this is one of a kind series and this will evolve with music. So if you’re a music lover turned writer, this series is for you. You might wanna check on Dying Hope to see how morbid I am to my characters. 😂😉

Dying Hope Trivias [#2]

Note: HHow to get away from homework is a great read. Try this one lol

I really hate deadlines. I don’t know why but I really get pressured everytime I set a deadline to myself. Maybe because I love to procrastinate and setting deadlines only worsen everything I am doing.

Originally, binigyan kami ni Nayin ng isang buwan para isulat ang mga nobela namin. 20k-30k words dapat. Nakakatuwa kasi mahigit dalawang linggo na ang nakakaraan pero wala pa rin akong matinong plot at kinakain na ako ng lupa dahil once in a blue moon lang ako makapagsulat sa computer dahil nang mga oras na yun, super baby pa ni Hailie at karga ko pa siya all the time. Partida, palagi pa akong puyat at nasa bahay lang ako. Wala akong ibang nakakahalubilong tao. 

Sobrang frustrated ko that time. Gusto kong makasulat ng isang nobela na kagaya ng Agape pero parang ayaw talaga makisama sakin ng tadhana. Sabi ko nung last week na lang, “Sige na. Bahala na.” Gumawa ako ng plot. Pero nakailang punit din ako. Hanggang sa tatlong araw na lang pero wala pa rin akong nagagawa. Sabi ko, wala na, suko na ko.

Pero sabi sakin ni Jem, “Meron kang masusulat. Kaya mo yan. Idol kita.” Sobrang natouch ako dahil dun. Kahit na sobrang busy niya sa trabaho, nagawa niya pa ring palakasin ang loob ko. 

I finished that novel within the last 48 hours kasama ang editing. Salamat sa extension! Nakaabot ako!

Sobrang proud ko lang nung natapos ko yun kasi nobela yun pero natapos ko sa loob ng dalawang araw lang.

Di ko na hinangad manalo noon. Ang goal ko that time, makatapos ng kwento at mapaiyak ko ang mambabasa ko.

Na-achieve ko naman sya kahit papano. Hihi

Kwentong ‘Gusto Ko Ba To?’

Note: I wrote this just because I remembered when I was writing for admission letters on college entrance exams. This is not based on real life, just pure fiction.

Matagal na akong naghihintay na dumating ang araw na ‘to. Ilang taon din akong nagpursigi para maging magaling lalo na sa paningin ng mga magulang ko. Ngayon pa ba ako susuko?

“Ano, ginawa mo ng snack yang reviewer mo, Ye. Hindi ka ba kakain man lang o magpapahinga?”

Tiningnan ko lang ang kaibigan ko. Sampu lang kaming kukuha ng exam pero hindi sya kasama roon. Tuwang-tuwa pa nga sya kasi hindi naman daw niya pangarap mag-aral sa UP. Ako kasi, pangarap ko… at pangarap din ng mga magulang ko. Sabi pa nila sakin nung bata pa ako, “Kailangan mong makapasa sa UP. Dun, maganda ang kinabukasan mo.” Sabi pa nila, yung in demand na kurso raw ang kunin ko. Para in ako. Para di ako mangulelat lalo na sa mga trabaho. Pero minsan, natanong ko rin ang sarili ko. Ito nga ba ang gusto ko?

Ito nga ba ang gusto kong mangyari sa buhay ko? Ayoko ba talagang maging normal na teenager? Maging normal na estudyante? Gusto ko ba talaga to o pinapagod ko lang ang sarili ko?

Si Nonoy at ang kanyang Kwaderno

Note: I just made this piece for this article

Ilang araw nang walang tulog si Nonoy. Akala niya, hindi na itutuloy ng mga magulang niya ang paghihiwalay ng mga ito. Sino ba naman kasing matinong mga magulang ang maghihiwalay habang nakikitang nahihirapan ang mga anak nila?

Dalawa lang silang magkapatid at yung tatay niya, may babaeng iba. Mala-ika-6-na utos ng ang kwento ng pamilya nila. Ang kaibahan nga lang, hindi naman nerdy type ang mama niya at mas lalong hindi ito mataba gaya ni Emma.

Pero sabi ng tatay niya, “Ayoko na sa’yo. May anak na kami ni Georgia.” Kung sino si Georgia, hindi niya alam. Ang kilala niya kasing Georgia, yung nanay ng kaibigan at kaklase niyang si Nicole.

Hawak ang bolpen at habang nakatitig sa papel niya, napaiyak siya. Hindi niya alam kung paano siya sasagot sa tanong na nasa papel niya.

“Ano ang gagawin mo kung papiliin ka ng mga magulang mo kung saan ka titira sakaling magkahiwalay na silang dalawa? Ang iyong sagot ay hindi dapat magkululang sa limang pangungusap at di hihigit sa sampung pangungusap.”

Ibinaling niya ang tingin kay Niple na ngayon ay patuloy pa rin ang pagsulat. Tiningnan niya ang bawat paggalaw ng kamay nito at pinilit niyang intindihin ang mga salitang isinulat nito. 

Bawat kurba ay ginagaya niya.

Bawat tuwid na linya at isinulat niya. 

Nang biglang may humablot sa kanyang papel at napatingala siya. 

Blog Directories [soon]

I am following a lot of blogs especially on Tumblr, but since I am new here on WordPress, I might as well list down my following so I can read a lot. Reading blogs has been my habit since I started blogging years ago in Tumblr. I didn’t talk often but I love reading.

I am currently at Greg’s blog directory and I am thinking of making one. Do you think you have cool list of following? I might blog about their blog as well soon. It could be one of my topics every week. What do you think?

Let me know your inputs and let’s share each other blogs so we can create a community. Any niche will do.

Thank you!

Writing Cover Letters

I am reading another Prescott article here about cover letters when I came up with this idea. Someone asked me how can she write an effective cover letter. Lagi na lang daw kasing nade-decline ang proposal niya lalo na sa UpWork. Hindi niya raw alam kung bakit lagi na lang deadma ang effort niya ng mga clients na ina-apply-an niya. 

I tried to check on her cover letter and I saw my previous self writing one. Naalala ko yung mga mali ko noong mga panahong hindi pa rin ako matanggap-tanggap. 

There are things you need to remember when writing a cover letter. 

First, you need to know what are you applying for. Hindi yung basta pasa na lang nang pasa ng generic cover letter na nagsisimula sa ‘To whom it may concern’ na linya. Okay lang naman yun, pero halata kasing ready-made template na ang ipinasa mo. Pwede mo namang ilagay ang pangalan niya. Madalas, makikita mo ang pangalan ni client sa job description o kaya sa reviews ng ibang freelancers (kung meron man).

Second, pay attention to details on the job ad. This is the main reason kung bakit madalas di ka natatanggap. Bukod sa generic nga ang cover letter na sinesend mo, hindi mo pa binabasa ang job ad niya nang buo. Madalas, naglalagay yan ng keywords sa job ad mismo na kelangan niya makita sa proposal/cover letter mo. Minsan, out of the blue ay magsasabi ang client na, “Put elephant at the beginning of your proposal. Failure to do so means I’ll decline your application.” Yes, ganon ka-simple mag-decline ng application sa mga clients na yan. Simple lang kasi yun. Pero madalas, di naman nagagawa.

Third, let the client know that you can do the job and your strengths but not by beating around the bush. Get straight to the point. Be concise. Keep it short.

What else?

Be you. 

Be the best.

CV vs Resume: The Difference

You can check how Prescott writes CVs here. But first of all, how can we differentiate CVs from resume?

Good question.

The main difference is the length and its content.

What is a curriculum vitae?

It is the summary of the applicant’s experience and skills. A CV usually includes experience and awards since grade school and all of the achievements you can brag about even if it happened long time ago. 

It is usually two to three pages long and you can see the summary of the job’s experiences of an applicant.

How about a resume?

Meanwhile, a resume is a summary as well of education, work hisyory, credentials, important accomplishments and your assets or skills. Not all resumes include objectives or summary statements in the beginning but some do. It is typically one-page long only and often bulleted. There are different types of resume.

So, basically, they only differ in length and content but still showcase skills that you want your employer to know about.

Business Writing Services [Suggestions?]

I have mentioned few days ago that I am planning to offer writing services here on my blog, but still, I am clueless of what kind of niche should I focus on.

Do you think you can help me?

I am reading this article post from Greg’s site and this blog post pop-up in my head.

I am planning to study technical writing such business letter writing, curriculum vitae writing, resume writing, how to be an efficient writer tutorial, how to be your own editor by the help of grammar tools (lol this is insane), or even recipe writing. What do you think?

Also, writing an itinerary, is it considered as business writing? Lol

I am really feeling like I would like to write a lot on this blog but I don’t know where and when to start writing. 

Can you help me? 

I have so maaaaany plans but I need help. I am all new to this. 

Research Topics for Depression 

I just remembered I was so depressed back when I was in college when I read this article

I remembered I wrote a short thesis about suicide and how you can overcome depression. The panelist asked me, “How can you overcome the thought of suicide?” and I answered that I need to think of the positive things and trust God – that might being up there – that I can be the best if I’ll survive. But again, they asked me, “How can I believe you it’s the right thing to do? Do you know someone who experienced depression and who almost committed suicide?” And I said, yes, me. 

They all stared at me and asked me again, “Why would we believe someone speaking in front of us about depression if she can’t explain why it’s happening to her?”

And blah blah and blah blah.

Like what I have said before on my stories, my childhood isn’t perfect. I don’t have the perfect memory of being a kid. I have four siblings but they are all grown ups. My father didn’t support me before everytime I write – he always says it’s just a waste of time and blah blah blah. 

I realized I am depressed when I entered college. I realized I need serious help but no one helped me but myself.
