I am a 27-year-old living Parañaque City, Philippines, and am a Project Manager by profession, among (many) other things.
I am a young(ish) professional in the middle of a concrete jungle, constantly jumping from one place to the next. In the past, I have been a Copyeditor, an Account Manager, Account Executive, Technical Staff, and a Senior Project Officer in various companies from both the private and public sectors. I’ve done fieldwork, mounted events for clients, and draft programs and project proposals for a living.
Working for the government has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have had thus far, as well as meeting new people every single day. I thrive the most in places where work varies from day to day, and alternate between standing on my feet every day and sitting in my office desk.
On days that I don’t work, I write, draw, and read Young Adult and Design books.
I volunteer my time as a pianist at Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary Parish in Multinational Village during Sunday mornings.
I have kept a small, Ina-sized space on the Internet since 2009, where I go from time to time to write. It has gone from a daily photoblog, to having shorter posts, to longform, to reviews, to Money Diaries, and then I paused for a while and stopped writing altogether.
It used to be designed as a time capsule for my future children–something I’ve planned on since I was 19–until I began as an outlet for myself. They will have their own struggles as I have mine, and some aspects of living are best if kept under lock and key.
This space, now, is for me. Thoughts, lists (I live my life in lists), odds and ends.
