Happy Spaces in Cyberspace

Hello, blog readers! This is just a random post pertaining to the blogs that I religiously follow alongside a short story of how my blog, Repudiate Sarcasm, actually commenced. (Nakkks! Maka-commence! Haha!)

It was a happy evening on December 2011 when I got tired studying Accounting. (Who in the world, don't?!!! Hehe.) So I randomly grabbed my laptop, searched for a free weblog publishing tool, and voila---Repudiate Sarcasm was born! My first few posts were all random (well even up to now, lol) until I have written my favorite post entitled A Love Letter to my Future Husband  and eventually realized that my blog's making sense, all the more. 

Truth be told, my blog has been my happy space for almost three beautiful years already and has, in fact, witnessed several phases of my life. Repudiate Sarcasm  has been my happy outlet. If you noticed, you can see lots of Hahaha's in my posts because I'm extremely giddy and hyper whenever I blog! Hahaha! Most importantly, I am fueled to write more and more whenever I receive positive feedback from my random blog readers. Tsada kaayo ang feeling pag ignan ka na "Gaka inspire ko sa imong blog, Ate Shola. Keep writing!" or bisan ignan lang ko na "Gabasa baya ko sa imong blog. Tabian kaayo ka! Hahaha!" Hehe. 

Whenever I hear mushy comments, gusto ko manago kay ulaw kaayo ko at the same time gakiligon!!! Hahaha! Come on!!! I am not a celebrity nor a super famous persona in Cagayan de Oro! I'm not even a legit writer but but but, I get happy and I make some people happy through some of my random posts---which made me realize even further---what more, then, could I ask for? :') Hehe. 

I would love to share to you, too, the happy spaces in cyberspace that I regularly follow. I have browsed several blogs already and found these three precious "gems" in the cyber world. Now if you would ask me why I love them, then read on. I'm sure you'll love their happy sites, too! :)

From Stilletos to Ballet Flats is a blog maintained by Ms. Stella! Based on my stalking skills (What?!!! Haha!) she's a lawyer by profession. I am amazed how this ultra mega mom can deliver her thoughts without intimidating her blog readers. (I am a fan of those who can convey their thoughts in a fun, entertaining manner.) She's a lawyer, at that, yet still managed to balance EVERYTHING in her life! You can learn lots of practical lessons in her page most specially about living life way beyond what the corporate world offers.

Saab is one of the late Kiko Magallona's wonderful children. Like Ms. Stella, she's a witty writer, too! You won't feel any boredom in her space because she knows how to keep a blog post rolling. My favorite post of hers is re her boyfriend's wedding proposal at Japan. Of course, a sentimental girl like me got teary-eyed while reading! Hahaha! Enjoy Saab's "Spell Saab". You won't regret. I swear! :)

1. Come, Waste Your Time with Me by Ms. Patty Laurel - Filart 
On top of my list is Ms. Patty's happy space! I'm always proud to say that I'm one of her thousands of fans! Ate Patty (FC mode on!) is too adorable, that you'll surely have lots of laughter in her vibrant posts. Her writing formula is simple: HAPPY WRITER = HAPPY READER! And truthfully, I get happy whenever I read her posts. Ms. Patty talks about her travels around the world, things that make her happy, and her positive outlook in life. She chooses to dwell on the brighter side of things and shy away those that bring her down. :)

Similarly, I wish to keep Repudiate Sarcasm a happy place, too. I pray to God that He will give me more beautiful years in this world for me to be able to share my future children's selfies, how I'll raise them to be good children of God etc etc. to all of you!!! Haha! Wishful thinking! Anyway, have a happy day, everyone! Let's all thank God it's Friday!!! Till my next post! ;)

The Twins in the Camiguin Island

Hi, friends! Missed me?!!! I missed you, too! Hahaha! My June's jam-packed, tbh. Whenever I look at my planner slash diary, I would really like to tap myself at the back while saying "Good job, Sholala! You're such a cutie!" What?! Cutie?!! Wuahaha! Kidding aside, I am extremely happy because I was able to do lots of happy activities during this month, both work and personal life-related. Hashtag work-life balance! 

I wish to share my valuable experiences so let me start with my trip in the Camiguin Island with Aj, which, for me, is very difficult because I don't know what title to use!!! Any suggestion, please?!!! Hahaha! Shallow, eh? I wanted to use a creative title but ended with "The Twins in the Camiguin Island". (I hope you don't find it as something #Jej, do you?!! Ugh. Hahaha! BTW, it's inspired by my favorite blogger, Ms. Patty Laurel-Filart!!!) So, stay tuned for "The Twins in Madrid, Spain" or "The Twins in Paris" or or or, "The Twins in Antarctica!" Hehehe.
