    More than the make up articles, I’d say that I like the “What I wanted to do with my career” topic. As someone it who had been there, I know it helped your younger readers in making up their minds about their career choice. Even if I am already a college grad, I had the same dilemma with what kind of job I really wanted to do. So finally, after a long and careful decision making, I decided to leave the corporate world and apply for a teaching job. Though I’m still waiting for result, I’m just patiently waiting because this time, I know I can do better and I have my family’s support. 🙂

    I would like for you to write up on the mental and emotional side of blogging, and more random things about you (harry potter and other geeky stuff, maybe? ) because it makes you closer to your readers. And please more make up tutorials too!

      Hi, Rhen! I love your answers. 🙂 I hope and pray you get the teaching job you applied for!

      And yeah, I plan to write more random geeky stuff like who my OTP’s are, and what kind of fanfiction I read. Hihi. I’m launching a YouTube channel as well, where I’ll be posting more makeup tutorials. 🙂

      I hope to see you on September 20!

    Hello Ms. Gretchen! Joining your giveaway and one blog post I really liked was the one entitled Three Things I Wish I Learned in High School posted last May 2015. I liked that every single note is something I can relate to, either I did it and excelled or I didn’t and regret. Like choosing a career path, for example. I didn’t really know what I wanted until I entered College so I had to transfer to another UP campus and shift to another course. Yes, high school is a great time to enjoy most of your teenage years without probably running against time and I definitely agree that high school should prepare you not only academically but also psychologically and emotionally into college and the real world.

    I hope that you could write more feel-good articles that are anything under the sun but very informative articles, yung tipong of practical use, like what to wear on first job interviews and how to ace them, sort of things. Hehe. 🙂

    Congratulations, Ms. Gretchen! How time really flies. Good luck on your future endeavors! 🙂

    Hi Miss Gretchen! Happy Two Years to your blog site and congratulations to you!

    My favorite article from Greta’s Junkyard is “Discovering What I Wanted to Do With My Career” because of two reasons: it inspire and makes me smile. I had work for four companies already and I still haven’t found the career that really fits me. Maybe because deep in my heart like you, I love writing. Everything that you said about having a career with writing was true. Your feature makes me motivated but at the same time sad. Yet whenever I remember this statement of yours: Don’t get into a career just because it sounds fancy or it pays big money. I can’t help but smile. Thank you for this wonderful article of yours.

    I hope you write more about inspiring, uplifting and enjoyable features about life and work and hopefully OOTD, latest fashion or trend! 🙂

    More powers to you! God bless you! 🙂

    Happy 2nd anniversary to your blog, Ms. Gretchen! 🙂

    My favorite article from Greta’s Junkyard is “The Most Sophisticated Hotel in Tagaytay: Domicillo”. I love how you wrote the article! I was only halfway through the article when you already made me want to visit the place! 😀 And the photos were so pleasing to the eyes! 🙂 I love reading blog posts that show genuine feelings of the writer toward a certain topic. And in that article, I can feel that you really enjoyed your experience. 🙂

    I would love to read articles about tips on dressing up for various occasions and life tips for those who want to pursue their passion. And more on events, good food and places to check out, and fun experiences to try! 🙂

    Keep inspiring, Ms. Gretchen! <3

    Miss Gretch,

    First of all I want to congratulate you on your 2nd year as a blogger. It is very nice of you sharing your thoughts and experiences with other people blessing us with knowledge and awareness on random things. I really love your blog entitled “Discovering What I Wanted to Do with my Career”. I’m lost in the “career field” at the moment since I am a mom already and I have to take in consideration a lot of things before proceeding. But I really love writing it is actually one of my hobbies back in highschool and in college. After reading your blogpost I got so inspired and promised myself that I will never give up something that I truly love doing.

    I hope you can write in the future how to got free samples from beauty counters here in the Philippines since not all people here in our country are impulse buyers most of us actually want to try the product sample first before actually buy the full size of the products. And I know that here in our country unlike other countries it is very hard to request for samples so I really want to have an idea if there are some counters that usually give free sample first.

    Thank you so much for the wonderful opportunity and for being an inspiration in writing field Miss Gretch.

    Have a blessed day..^_^
