#30DaysBlog Challenge: Day 2 Doodle Your Goals

When I heard that day 2 was about doodles, it is something I can do. But given a slight delay with the post, I am happy to share my drawing as a doodle which I made 4 days ago. Drawing is one of things that gives me that artistic release and keeps my hands busy with working with my imagination.

I do have a lot of goals in life which might lead to a novel when written all down. But what the heck, a picture can still mean a thousand words right? So for this 30 Day Challenge, I will share some of my works which reflects my goals for both short and long terms.

#30DaysBlog Challenge: Day 1 Introduce Yourself

Hey its July! And one thing that I want to do is make more personal writing that can also benefit me in doing more awesome stuff. I have come across a blogging challenge for the month of July to make a blogpost everyday for the month and for day 1, it is...well... uhm... introductions!

For those who don't know me, I am Florencio P Jusay Jr, or more commonly known as FPJ Jr (because of my intitials and the name gives a good recall). I have been blogging for more than ten years. I stared back when blogger was a new website for blogging, but I only had short posts and have migrated to friendster and multiply for personal  social network and posting.
