On blogging almost every day

I've posted something almost every day since the second week of January, perhaps the most prolific of months since I decided to share a little of my life to this tiny, quiet, almost forgotten space in the web. Social media has been too noisy, angry, and alienating, but this spot here is just what it should be: a place that friends visit when they realize they haven’t dropped by for quite a while, or that strangers run into when Google answers their searches about med school, NMAT, and the UP College of Medicine. My inbox receives the occasional emails from hopeful students who want to become doctors, and I’m always happy to answer them when I have time. Which, in the past few weeks, I’ve had lots of.

Writing has always been therapeutic for me. I’ve resolved to not just blog more frequently, but to be more consistent in journaling. My ideas, dreams, and plans become clearer when they are laid out in words. I’ve found that writing my prayers as I pray them is beneficial to my soul, in that I am able to focus more on the glory and mercy of God and look back—days, weeks, or years later—at those prayers and realize that the God to whom I pray has answered all my cries, worries, and desires in the way He has deemed best.

January was over three days ago!
