Renee's Sunday Currently Vol. 15

Hey there! I hope you're having a good Sunday 😊 Mine's a slow one. I woke up today around 11, drank coffee, worked a little, cooked and arranged the groceries, and of course, listened to music while doing all of those. I also have a new podcast episode up and it's a new segment I made …

How To Really Know Someone | 17

Happy Wednesday! It's been sooooooo long since I posted an entry for this series and when I checked how many more questions were left to answer, I'm left with less than 30 now. So this series is coming to an end—finally after 6 years! 😂 Let's get to it!

Anecdotes 15 | Sibling Petty Fights and Whatnot

When I think about my childhood, I can always remember how my brother and I have fights all the time when we were still little. My brother and I have a two-year gap. We grew up pretty close, being each other's playmates, being each other's punching bags whenever we have disagreements. I'…

Going Green: Another Hairstory

I've always been adventurous with my hair, but since I left for Dubai, I haven't touched it and just simply let it grow freely. I've had it grown long, I've cut it short and then grew it again. It was a boring cycle of long and short locks, and maybe it's this spontaneous side o…

The First Half of 2022

2022 came with the impression of being 2020 2.0. I thought it was going to be another year of being kept inside the house and having pandemic anxiety. But then it turned out that the situation got a lot better than the year before. The restrictions were not as strict, and everything seemed to be ge…

Life Lately: May & June

Hello, how's life? I actually miss this space so much that even though I don't have any idea what to post, here I am opening a blank page and just outright start typing words just to make an update on here. I even had to look up my last life lately post because I seem to have forgotten how …

“I feel like I don’t deserve compliments”

[Start of Transcript]I think it’s a valid feeling that each of us has experienced this kind of dilemma at least once in our lives. We feel like the good things that people say to us are not genuine. Not genuine in the sense that we feel like we don’t deserve such words of praise. I don’t want to s…

Take the time to slow down and smell the flowers

What Am I Good At?

A Major Desk Makeover

I had the Lenovo Ideapad 14-inch laptop since 2017 and it worked well. It did its job for the past several years but its performance has declined ever since. Last year, it showed signs of giving up and I went into a bit of a panic because it's the only tool I'm using for my work. That's…

Journaling and the Peace & Joy it Gives Me

[Start of Transcript]I think somewhere along with my episodes here on the pod, I’ve mentioned that one of my many hobbies is keeping a bullet journal. And so I thought for this episode, I’ll talk about that.Hey everyone, this is Alexis. Welcome to the Single Millennial Podcast. A podcast where I ta…

Invest in Yourself

[Start of Transcript]The first time I entered the freelancing field, I was in the middle of reviewing for my engineering licensure exam. I was 21 and had just graduated from University and I had a crisis. My phone broke and I needed to have a functional one. I didn’t want to ask for money from my p…

Happy Sunday, dear reader! I hope you are doing well on this fine, rainy day. It's been a while since my last Sunday Currently update and I kinda missed doing it. Not much happening to me lately aside from getting back to doing podcast episodes and reading books to fill in my yearly reading cha…

The Sense of Achievement and Whatnot

[Start of Transcript]Sometimes, I stay awake late at night thinking about what I have achieved in my life. If there's anything I've achieved at all. It's a disturbing thought and it makes me think that I am not doing enough because I can't seem to make a list of things that I can be…

I Make Playlists

I listen to a lot of music genres and over the years, I've discovered more and more types of music that I grew to like. I go through a lot of different emotions and in every type of mood I have, I always associate it with music. 
I guess you could say that music is a big part of my life and I ne…
