What A Day

Originally, I thought today was going to be a majorly shitty day. So, to compensate, I took a picture of something beautiful (ignore the crappy quality). :)

But then…

Things looked up right after lunchtime. I received good news about something I was really nervous about. I celebrated by buying myself a Pepsi (I’m a miser, I know).

Things got even better after school. I went to Robinson’s and found this:

See, I’m a student by day and a tagalog romance novelist by night. The picture above features my first book on a shelf at National Bookstore. Sorry if it’s a little blurry. I had to take a photo before anybody noticed. LOL.

So, yeah.

Hi, just passing by. Congratulations on your first published book! Will check it out once I get to National Bookstore. Anyway, just to answer the question you had a few posts back: "I’m sure of one thing, though. I want to write, but will that keep me alive in today’s economy?" My answer is "yes" if you mean all kinds of writing (journalism, public relations, etc.) and not just fiction-writing. You would be surprised to find out how much good grammar and decent writing skills are valued in some big name companies. But somewhere along the way, you have to compromise. Having a career in writing might mean less time to write for fun. Anyways, whatever you decide to do with your life after college, I wish you the best.
