Finding Your Passion Via MarieTV

“Have you ever struggled to “find your passion” —
and if so, what helped you crack the code?”

Passion for your career

My questions back in 2010 and 2012 when I left high paying jobs was: “What kind of work would I love to do for the rest of my life?”

I remember back in University how I would love to work someday in advertising. I love being creative. I took a step back and looked at my life like an outsider. What’s constant? It was family, love for learning and blogging.

I was blogging constantly, engaging and sharing in social media. Blogging helped me learn about SEO, website management and design, analytics and social media. I didn’t know that “Digital Marketing” is a career that I could do.

I am actively seeking social media work and getting into volunteerism so I can also work on a portfolio. Just like what Marie, of MarieTV, says,” Don’t just think it. Do it.” Digital Marketing is a broad subject. I know that I have still have much to learn. Career shifting is never easy. I am currently learning about E-commerce and I’m planning to take another online course by end of summer.

The original Got To Believe is a movie played many years ago by Claudine Barretto and Rico Yan. The TV promises to be different and it did just that and more.

I miss the most kilig TV series ever in Primetime Bida!

The last episode.

G2B Cast

1: Joaquin and Chichay 2: Joaquin’s Parents 3: Chichay’s Parents

Julianna, Joaquin’s mother, confesses it was her gun and bullet that accidentally shot Joaquin in the head. Joaquin is willing to forgive his mother, Julianna, anything that was done in the past. Chichay, as always the forgiving heart, forgives Julianna and believes their family can get through the hardship. Joaquin slowly approached Julianna, took the gun she has been holding and threw it out of reach. Joaquin and Jamie, Joaquin’s dad, held Julianna close to them.

The next scene was when Joaquin walked in to the Tampipi family dinner. He also announced that his mother is with him. Julianna approached Betchay, Chichay’s mother, and asked for forgiveness. Julianna then asked the Tampipi family to take care of her son. The police appeared and invited Julianna to leave with them. Joaquin and Jaime showed their support to Julianna.

The next scene showed Chichay and Joaquin’s college friends contemplating what happened to them. One of Joaquin’s friend admitted that his father received an invitation from Joaquin’s family and thinks it’s a wedding invitation. [Read more...]

Life Updates #3



..according to Instagram.


I easily get bored following one exercise routine. When a sister’s friend invited us to go for power walk at a different location, I was up for it. In the area, there was a small children’s playground with swing.
I couldn’t help myself. I had to give it a go. “This one’s for the childhood memories”.

One of my sister’s boss is into the fitness life business. She has access to tons of juicing recipes and motivational resources. We’ve been thinking about buying a juicer that’s good in quality and at the same time affordable. We finally found one at a department store home goods area, the Moulinex Juice Extractor for only Php3,600+. We loved the first juice concoction we made and it was detoxifying indeed. More on that later on.

Mama is getting health conscious after experiencing some health scare in her prime age. She went out grocery shopping and these are her healthy choices. I’ve always been curious about the Apple Cider Vinegar diet and it makes a great base for green salad sauce. I’ll write a blogpost about it soon. [Read more...]

What I Didn’t Plan Giving Up This Lent

It’s blogging.

Mac Air and Pink Pen

It’s the only thing in my life that I haven’t been doing in the last 3 weeks. It’s not unusual when I work full-time. When I’m only working part-time, it’s something else. I used to blog 5 days a week, if you can check the last few months Archive section.

It’s this always “on” thing I have with work and still trying to streamline work processes. It’s still a work in progress and will always be like so if no one wants to make an investment. But then, this is just me. I still enjoy the kind of work that I do, I’m sticking to it and I’m going to take as much experience as I can while I’m at it.

Oh, I sucked at going to Zumba or group exercise class. Pfft!

Everyone’s Irish On March 17th

I’m seeing green and glitters!

St. Patrick's Day

In the Philippines, we don’t normally celebrate St. Patrick’s Day like the Irish.
Since it’s celebrated in the Catholic churches, this is why we notice how the Irish does it
every 17th of March.

If you see someone wearing green and greets you, give them a kiss, cheek to cheek.
Have a blast to my Irish friends!

Oh, let me know if you want me to make a tutorial on how to make glittered fonts!

Life Updates #2

Having a productive weekend is something one shouldn’t aspire to. But, I did some work, started curating contents for a social media page I manage. Social Media Management is not easy. You have to be on 24hrs a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a week.

This weekend I started a premium HootSuite account. I finished HootSuite Professional Certification courses and exam this weekend. Really productive!

HootSuite Certified Professional

Yep, that’s it. I’m done with certification and I have yet to apply what I learn. I only get to use my HootSuite account personally. I understand this platform is great for Marketers. I aspire to be one, a Digital Marketer.

I plan to study a specialist track course but the course fee is too steep. I also need to study this web designing course but it’s only offered in a different city. I have to stay in that city for at least a month!

I have yet to prepare my Business Plan for this E-Commerce course I’m doing. Also, I’ve only been to a total of three Zumba classes this month. Ugh! I need to get my butt off the couch! I need to stop whiling away my time surfing the internet. I have yet to enroll in gym class. The money is waiting to be spent on a one month membership. I need to wake up early so I can go to the gym!

Lastly, I’m trying to figure out if I should go back to full-time employment and apply to a media agency.

Dude! I have tons to think about!

What are you up to? Let us know in the comments below. Thank you for reading!

Start Of Lent: What are you giving up?


Lenten Season

After a meeting over Hangouts, my sister told me that her boss, into the fitness business, recommended to stop drinking coffee if you are serious about losing weight.

Me, stop drinking coffee? It’s suicide. I’ve tried it before and I’ve always failed.

I think he might be talking about coffee from Starbucks, CBTL, Seattle’s Best or Bo’s coffee. He might be referring to coffee rich with cream and sweets. My coffee at home every morning is very simple. I don’t have to add sugar. I don’t drink more than 2 cups of coffee because I’ll have a hard time sleeping at night. And, last I check with MyFitnessPal, my coffee is only 60 calories! I’m safe, right? It’s lenten season, I know. Should I? I’ve started drinking lemon water in the morning and evening. Maybe during Lenten season I could forego coffee? I will try!

Less social media logged time? I’ve opened the subject at work with a bunch of Social Media addicts like me. I was told “Social Media is air.” So, that’s that.

What are you sacrificing this Lenten season?
