Good day! My name is Carla. C for curiosity, A for adaptability R for radical L for love inspired and another A for adventure. I am currently a Philosophy major but I love to write and do work for others in my free time. I am a lover of life and an avid reader. My skills include teaching English, Creative Writing, Photography and Research. I used to teach in an online school for Korean students for 6 months so I have the experience and knowledge of working with people who are interested to learn the language. My greatest hobby is getting lost in other far away wondrous worlds of books. I probably read 2 every week. and I manage 3 blogs which I all created: Pandanbeachresort.org - the official website of our resort family business. carlaembracingconsciousness.wordpress.com - this is all about my personal reflections, thoughts and ideas on life, love and the books I love to read. pandanwanderlust.blogspot.com - Articles here are also seen in the official website (pandanbeachresort.org). Since I am helping my mother out in her resort business in a little town in Antique,Philippines called Pandan, I put up this blog to advertise my adventures and encounters with the mysterious and untapped beauty Pandan has to offer. To know more about the resort business visit: Facebook.com/pandanbeachresort. I took up Philosophy in De La Salle University, one of the best schools in Manila Philippines, and continuing my education at the University of San Agustin, Iloilo city. I have a knack for writing about life, travel, love, movies and books.
