What to Pack in Your Travel Emergency Kit
Traveling in itself is already a fun thing to do, but there's one way to make traveling even more exciting: go on aspontaneous trip! Dropping whatever it is you're doing for an impromptu out-of-town escapade is a thrilling idea, and the flurry of last-minute arrangements only ups the adrenaline. In light of doing something new this year, why not go on the next spur of the moment trip you're invited to? So you'll be ready for any adventure, we've listed down the things you should pack in your go-anywhere emergency bag. Keep the bag in your car, or in a spot at home that's easily accessible.
- A clean shirt, and a pair of shorts or jeans—Two sets of clothes will allow you to go on a weekend trip. In case you suddenly decide to extend your trip, you can wash the set you've already used. Pack light—if you must bring jeans, wear them in transit so you can save on luggage space. Comfy and flexible items like drawstring pants, canvas cargo pants, or shorts are also smart choices. Avoid packing linen as it wrinkles easily.
- A jacket—A jacket with a hood can keep you warm—opt for a water-repellent jacket if you're traveling in the rainy season. You can bring anoraks that fold and zip up into a pocket to save space. If you're bringing a thicker jacket, wear them in transit as well.
- Toothbrush and toothpaste—A retractable toothbrush saves space in your kit. A toothpaste sachet with a twist cap is easier and less messy to pack.
- Soap, shampoo, and deodorant—Choose travel-sized essentials to keep your bag light. Alternatively, you can just bring a multipurpose bath item, like a facial scrub, which you can use for your face and body. A plus: since the scrub comes in a tube, it won't
First aid kit
- Medicine for headache, diarrhea, allergies, and other special medications—Check your stash constantly and make sure the ones in your bag are not yet expired. If you're taking regular medications, prepare them in a pillbox so you don't have to bring a large bottle with you.If you're prone to motion sickness, make sure to keep a motion sickness pill, like Bonamine, on hand.
- Flashlight—Make sure you have spare batteries with you especially if you're staying outdoors. You can also get the manually powered ones that are charged by small dynamo cranks. A minute of cranking by hand will supply approximately an hour of power.
- Camera—Bring a camera to preserve the experience for posterity. Remember to bring the charger (or for old cameras, batteries and film). Make sure to recharge the camera's battery at the end of each day.
- Cash—Have enough cash for your trip as not all places have ATMs. Keep cash in separate bags so you don't lose all your money if you lose a bag.

I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.
The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.
There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
