About This Blog

"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven;  a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain, a time to search and a time to give up,  a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace." -- Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

There is indeed a season for everything. Life's many colorful chapters is what makes it so beautiful. It was only yesterday when I ended one and then started yet another one. But beginnings nor endings do not define nor contain what is beautiful about life. It is the journey in between; the adventures you embark on; the challenges you face; even the defeat you've had to endure;  the victories you've cherished; the friends and foes you've met and kept along the way; and most importantly, the lessons you've learned about life itself. It is about you having the courage to end one chapter and start a new one again with excitement and always with great anticipation. It is about you discovering how marvelous and wonderful THE AUTHOR OF LIFE is because in His book, the one He wrote for you,  He placed you at the center of His heart.

This blog chronicles one chapter of my life. I just ended the chapter I spent in college. Those four years were filled with such great adventures. But now, I've moved on to a new one -- the period where you begin to actually and truly live out your life's calling. This blog will therefore tell of the adventures and misadventures of my life as a young professional. Experience is one of the best teachers. Though it isn't my intent to teach, I hope that through this blog I'd be able to impart something of value to whoever will stumble upon this blog; especially to those who are treading the same path I am going through. 


Version 1 - I wanted to give it a vintage feel; thus, the background which I got here. It's so supposed to be a vintage wallpaper type typography and I love it because it pays homage to the written and printed word. All the doodles in the header are done by me using Adobe Photoshop CS3.

About the Owner

My name is Jais, and I'm a twenty-something freelancer from Surigao City, Philippines. I love the written word and my encounters with them have always filled me with such delight and  have likewise given me a sense of wonder all the time. I love cheerful and bright things, thus the title of this blog. There are so many things I feel like I'm a geek about like anime (and the Japanese culture), history, art, manga/comic books (err... graphic novels), cartoons (the not anime version), anything medieval, Victorian and vintage. I love home decorating too and have recently decided to start saving up for a Santorini inspired house filled with vintage furniture and trinkets; toys, and artworks of all kinds! I love my family (both distant and near; flesh and spirit) and they've always played a great role in shaping me into who I am today. I'm also with the person who's more than the dreamiest prince charming I can conjure in dreams and I'm excited to spend the rest of my life with him. I love all the things I do (thus, making me extremely blessed for not needing to work my entire life -- you know what I mean). And most importantly, my life is a song and a story for the One who covered me in love and grace. Everyday is lived for Him and with Him.

I've also recently gotten into stick figures. And I made a whole page for my drawings here.
