I am mostly stumped when I have to tell something about myself. For someone who can freely speak about many topics of interest, talking about myself seems a bit of a chore. Maybe I just don’t like focusing the attention on me. But I’ll give it a try anyway.
I currently work and live in Manila and I have been officially independent since age 26. That was almost 15 years ago, so yeah, you can probably guess my age. I have three adorable nephews who live with my mom and sister in the province. I love them to bits and I try to come home and visit them as much as I can.
They say that I took after my dad’s looks and I suppose they’re right. If I’d been born a boy, I might have been his junior. I’ve also inherited his love for music. He taught me how to play the guitar, maybe realizing that I’m not much of a singer hehe. My dad’s a gentle spirit and when I was much, much younger, I was more like him, very calm and gentle-mannered. As I grew older, and being mostly left to fend for my own, or maybe I’m going through some sort of mid-life crisis, I realize that I am now more like my mom…feisty when it’s necessary. I try to keep a balance though.
I have a college degree in Chemical Engineering. I love Chemistry so I guess that figures. But although I took up a Science course, I’m also an artist by heart. So, aside from music, I also love to draw and do a bit of crafting and lettering. I guess I have also wanted to write, to paint with words as they say. But I’m not much a of a storyteller or a novelist. I guess I am more of an essayist or just a short article writer. Anyway, whatever you may call it, it’s still writing. So yes, I fiddle and twiddle with words.
About the Blog
I took to writing mainly as a way to express my thoughts and emotions. A Soul Redeemed is about my faith journeys as I strive to grow more and more into a loving relationship with God. Mostly, I’ll be writing about experiences, reflections, devotions, and lessons learned while studying God’s Word. As I do that, it is my hope that I will be able to inspire positive thoughts, but most importantly, point you to Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of faith.
