Whoever has stumbled upon this section of the internet just to read my blog, hello! Welcome! Make yourself at home.
As I am writing this, the COVID-19 pandemic has been raging on for about 1 year so far in the Philippines. Whoever is reading this article in the future, COVID-19 (or SARS-COV-2) is a type of coronavirus that had its 1st recorded case from the Wuhan wholesale food market last December 2019. It then prompted the lockdown for the whole of China before 2020’s Chinese Lunar Celebration started, which stopped one of the biggest tourist market in the world to its tracks. That didn’t stop the spread of the virus, as some had left China before the lockdowns started. This has spread the virus to the world. Now, though, China is the only country in the world that can clearly say that has contained the virus, while other countries like the US and my humble home country Philippines is still struggling to contain it.
What’s going on in my life so far? As a result of the pandemic, I have taken some side projects by building new websites for small business owners in the Philippines, similar to what you’re reading now, because job applications are slow in these hard times. Also, I’ve got a new job, which I’m poised to start this week, and I’m very nervous.
That’s a brief summary of what’s going on, as I am writing this blog post. So let’s move on: what am I gonna write about here? There really isn’t a structure, but I would want to write about things that I am interested in (like my hobbies & guilty pleasures), some things I have learned along the way (reading books and learning new skills), and some musings I have (like how I am starting to realize democracy isn’t the best form of government for all countries; please lower your pitchforks!). I will update this blog irregularly, but feel free to check it out every once in a while if you’re interested in what I have to say. 🙂
