And there goes another year! For a lot of people, 2016 has been a year of huge challenges and heartbreaks. It was the year of frustration and disappointment, from both the US and Philippine elections alone, the year of tragic deaths of a few known people that made us realize how life is short, and is definitely the year of bad music (but this part is subjective hehe).
But despite all the wrong things that has happened this year, there are a few good ones that are worth looking back to. For me, 2016 has been a year of revival, discovery, community, and opportunities!
Thanks to social media, I don't really need to write up an entire blog post about me getting sick these past few days. At this point, you already know what I've been going through. But it's been a week since the last time I posted on here, and I feel like I owe my blog some quality time, so here I am.
I ran a poll on Twitter not too long ago asking you guys what you want to see more of on Explore with Corinth, a.k.a., this blog, and majority of you guys want to see more personal posts. Second came "a little bit of everything" which essentially means "lifestyle" posts, so now, I'm just trying to brainstorm blog ideas surrounding these two categories.
I have been nominated by Mei and Kelly to participate in the Liebster Award tag, but since I already did this before, I will not be doing it again. However, I will still be answering their questions because Q&As are a really great way for you guys to get to know me better! But I want to know more about you too! So let's do this: if you don't mind, please also answer at least 3-5 questions in the comment section!
Let's get a little bit more personal..... again! I know, I know, my blog has been feeling a little bit commercialized these past few weeks, but I promise you, this is still the same blog I started almost 3 years ago! As most of you may know, EXPLORE WITH CORINTH is my full-time job, and I've been working really hard to earn money from it because you know, the bills won't pay themselves. It has been such a blessing to even be able to type that out because this was my dream 5 years ago, to be a full-time blogger, and I'm finally living out that dream!
I do this weird thing with my fingernails and my bed. I kind of rub my nails on the bed very hard so it feels as if I'm pulling my nails out. It feels sooooo freaking good, especially when the bed is cold.
So I started doing this thing again, where I carry my camera around, and I talk to it and stuff, and it seems like some of you are really enjoying it so I'm going to keep doing it!
Vlogging is so much more fun than creating makeup videos, so I think I'm going to incorporate more vlogs than beauty related stuff on my channel from now on. I will still create makeup videos from time to time, but it won't be the backbone of my channel anymore. I mean, my brand name is "Explore with Corinth", might as well live up to its name right?
50. DO YOU THINK SOMEONE COULD LOVE MORE THAN ONE PERSON AT ONCE?
It's possible because I love a lot of people right now! But you can only be in-love with one person, and that should be your partner. If you feel like you're in-love with two people at the same time, you gotta do some praying. You gotta ask God who the right person is for you. 🤔
When Maria (go check her channel out!) invited me to dinner with some of her blogger friends, I'm not gonna lie, I felt kinda scared. I don't know why, but I just get super nervous about meeting new people! But I'm freaking 26, an adult, and there's nothing to be afraid of! So on Tuesday, August 16, I sucked it up, showered, did my face, and met up with some blogger babes.
My last Life Lately update was in April, and boy, so many things have happened since then! Want to know what I've been up to, and why I've been missing online? HUHU. 😭
Jorge finally got me a joint bank account and credit card. You guys, I've been living here in the US for 9 months already, and we worked on that just last week. 😂 We got super lazy on that one. Now, I feel legit with two American cards in my wallet. Speaking of wallets, I need a new one; one that screams, "I'm an adult". The one I have is made out of plastic, is pink, and has flowers all over it.
Jorge is never worried about anything because his faith in God strengthens his heart and mind. He is constantly teaching me to put my full trust in the Lord, because He will always provide. And of all people, I should actually be the one to know this well, because I'm a living testimony of how God provides for His children. And I think that's the reason why he's so supportive of me and my craft:
Deuteronomy 31:6 [NIV] "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."
I've heard about this Death Note thing but I have no idea what it is. I'm not even going to pretend I know how to answer this because even though I googled it, I still don't know what it is and how it works. HAHA. Should I read/watch this manga? 🤔 Am I a loser yet?
