It has only been a couple of weeks since I finally decided to take my coding career seriously.
After the umpteenth time of redesigning my personal website (under construction until further notice), I allowed my husband to convince me to sign up for an immersive web development program and turn my coding hobby into a career.
So far, the journey has been great.

There are five stages of grief, and I am at acceptance.
I can’t write about death because I’m still alive, but I can definitely write about what it feels like to lose someone deep in your heart.
Hello, I'm Krystle.
A content writing small business owner. Human, lol.
If you are new to my writing welcome, I am not your average content writer; I am a storyteller. In this piece, I will be sharing some insight into my personal life on how I’ve been handling the death of a loved one.
As I mentioned before, this piece is not about…
Post-pandemic is among us, as countries slowly transition back to “normal,” and people are eager to get outside for summer activities.
Your anxiety has reached an all-time high, you are constantly trying different diets even though you know you won’t see results right away, and you began to exercise compulsively.
When you are scrolling social media, people are sharing their hot summer bodies. While health news articles share how many people gained lots of weight during quarantine.
During quarantine, you focused on everything but your body. …
Every year, I get a burst of creativity, and instead of using the burst to create more of your favorite content to read. I fade away from publishing work and dive deep into redesigning my home, life, or personal blog.
And every year ends with longer to-do lists and fewer accomplishments.
Sidenote: I must inform you, I do have some coding skills, so this is why I can get my website to look the way it does.
From time to time, software updates, and when that occurs, a domino effect takes place. …
“Dope! I published an article today; I am somewhat back on track.”
“Now that I’m all published let me scroll medium to follow new people and get inspired.
Those were my thoughts right before I came across this post by Danwil Reyes about winning $20,000 by writing a Doomsday diary entry.
That stopped me right in my tracks.
Well! I wasn’t walking; I was scrolling on the phone, so I guess it stopped me in my swipe? Idk!
“Oh! Yes!, “ I screamed, startling my husband, “I can totally do this.”
My husband was shaken, and I then…
It’s Saturday, and I have nothing to do.
I've been working hard all week, stressed to the point of not being able to sleep.
I don’t want to write; I want to cry, but living in Los Angeles, you cannot walk around with puffy eyes.
So I work out to kill time.
Thanks to Saturday, my weekday bustles are far from my mind. But still, I don’t know how to be lazy.
While the world is my stage, I have no pending tasks screaming at me from any of my screens on this beautiful lazy day.
The only thing I…
It can be quite exciting when you receive an invitation to submit a proposal to an Upwork invitation, especially when it's your first one.
In fact, it is so exciting I wrote an earlier post about the experience of getting an Upwork invite which you can check out below.
Today I want to talk about something many people don’t share when you are venturing out into the world of freelancing on Upwork, and that is declining offers.
When you are new to freelance or even when work gets slow, you would think you should take all of the offers that…
It’s a typical Monday morning, and you are sipping your coffee or tea as you open your laptop or Ipad to see what plans you have in store for the day.
Little to your surprise, there is a notification from your Upwork app.
Is it true, did one of my proposals get accepted? You wonder.
You put down your morning drink and brace yourself for what the notification has to say.

On many drunken occasions, my husband and I will talk about some pretty outlandish things.
If we are not discussing religion, culture, politics, or technology, you can find us talking about possible natural disasters.
If I want to be fair, I am usually the one who brings up the topic.
Why, you might ask?
Well, I guess it is because that is the only thing I believe other humans and I have no control over.
And to top it off, I am fascinated by it.
One late afternoon while my hubs and I were hanging out with some friends, I…
Trusting yourself is all it takes
For years, I have wanted to learn how to swim, and after many failed attempts, I finally took the lesson into my own hands.
I’ve had many people who tried to teach me (thanks if you are reading this), but for some strange reason, I could never get the hang of it.
I must say one thing kept coming up for me whenever I would find myself in a pool trying to float or doggy paddle, and it was my mind against my body. …
