Dear Ex-Friend

RACHEYwrites | Dear Ex-Friend

Dear Ex-Friend,

We’re not friends anymore, but I thought I’d write this letter because I was thinking of you recently. There’s no correct way to have a “friendship breakup,” and sometimes time and distance affects friendships where we talk less and less and less… until we don’t talk or check in on each other anymore.

My Half-Year Anniversary in Corporate

RACHEYwrites in Corporate

I started this blog simply talking about my day, but it turned into a whole gratitude post about where I am in my life and the fact that it’s my seven month anniversary at the company I work with. In my eyes, seven months is something to celebrate — considering I’ve worked with some tough professional situations over the last few years. For seven months, I’ve osmosis’ed into this global engineering company and made a home for myself… so, yes, I’m damn proud.

The Core Five: Grandchildren of Fighters

CORE FIVE BULOSAN COUSINS_1

We are the Core Five, the first five grandchildren of Angelina and Diosdado Bulosan. From oldest to youngest, it’s me, my sister Bridget, Hannah, Luke, and Celine. We are grandchildren of dreamers who flew across the Pacific Ocean to live in America. We are grandchildren of small business owners, self-starters, tailors, and hard workers. We are grandchildren lucky enough to have a grandma who (quite literally) fights and has a black belt, and have a grandpa who is currently fighting for his life as we speak.

The (almost) Last Episode of Gilmore Girls

There’s something about a great story ending just as a chapter is coming to a close and the characters are beginning a new chapter. I just finished Season 7 Episode 22 of Gilmore Girls — the very last episode, at least “the last” before the revival released in 2016. I’m all sorts of mush inside. I cried, I laughed aloud, I felt all sorts of nostalgia for my college years leading up to the awaiting graduation.

My 2017 Highlights

RACHEYwrites | 2017 Best Nine on Instagram

@RACHEYwrites 2017 Best Nine on Instagram | What a year it has been… from my highest of highs to my lowest of lows, my gratitude comes down to one thing: love. This year has shown me true love with my now-husband Mark, true love in genuine friendships, and true love for what I do to make money and build a career for myself. The photos (above) of my “best nine” photos on Instagram is a mere glimpse of how much love I experienced this year, so here’s a blog post of the most major highlights — both highs and lows.
