Jobs in Progress Equals Blog on Hiatus


It's been a while since my last post on this "absurd" blog. But I am finally back... and getting ready to overcoming absurdity in 2015.

Over the last 11 months, I've been working, pondering, and then, working my buns off.  I have had experiences worth telling, and so much stories to tell. They are too much for me that I found it hard to put them into words. I went through a lot of transitions, inner struggles, and was affected by the natural catastrophes that hit our region. Yet, despite the earthquake and super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) that had passed through the island, I still am grateful to find myself sitting in the corner of my cozy room with my fingers running on the keyboard doing what I am obliged to do. I am also grateful for the opportunities that came to me and for the wonderful and very considerate employers I have and have had at oDesk.com.

For the longest time, I've been running Source the News website and played a role since its inception. I admit, I'm not quite satisfied with the front end of the site, but it's still on the Beta phase. So, I'm still keeping my fingers crossed.
