Let's Get It On! My Introductory Post - Achievement 1 Task by @misskaren

5개월 전

Hello, Steemit Community! I hope you are doing well and you have a healthy mind and body even if we are in pandemic right now. I am new on this platform so I would be very happy to introduce myself to all of you.

I am Karen Moralde, currently living in Cebu City, Philippines. My family and friends usually call me Karen or Kars and so, I hope you'll also call me the same way as they do. I'll be turning twenty-two (22) seven months from now but I still live together with my family.

I'm a third year student taking up the course of Bachelor of Science in Business Administration major in Human Resource Development in one of the universities here in Cebu. I'm on my second semester now which thrills me enough because I am about to step up to the next and last chapter of my college book which is the fourth year. I am excited yet nervous of what's ahead of me.


To aid my financial needs while studying, I work as a fast food crew which is four kilometers away from where I'm currently residing. I got an older sister who has her own family now and so she can't help me financially since they have just started building their own family. I also have an older brother who's currently working but he's the one supporting the daily needs of our family. But even with those challenges, I still received much support from them especially when I need them the most.

Since I am still schooling, I only render four hours of service every weekdays and weekends. There are times that I render overtime especially on weekends or on holidays. Before pandemic, I was assigned to host parties organized by the company where I am currently connected. I used to organize/ manage the event starting from pre-party tasks (e.g. booking, planning, setting-up), during the party tasks (hosting and coordinating with other crews and staffs), and post-party tasks (it's more on cleaning, anyway).

However, when lockdown was enforced last year which was followed by strict implementation of community quarantine, our store temporarily shut down the operation. It was around September of last year when we re-opened and they called me to work again but that time (up until now) I was (am) assigned to another area in our store because parties are restricted due to this current health crisis but with all these things happening, I am still grateful because I can still sustain my studies.

Right now, aside from working as a fast food crew, I am also looking for a side hustle to help my family with our current situation (which I am not comfortable enough to share as of now to not ruin my introduction). That lead me signing up here without any deep knowledge about this platform. But I'm sure that I'll receive some help from the existing posts and tutorials in New Comer's Community as well as from the help of my friend @kim24 whom I considered as a sister too (who's not yet active as of now because of her studies too).

I love taking 'instagrammable' selfies though I am not that active on instagram. I usually posts my photos on my facebook account. If my memory served me right, this photo was taken when I was still in senior high school during a typical wash day (wednesday) where I borrowed a cap of my maritime student friend to match with my outfit.

I also love to have a joyride with my special someone --- good food, relaxing place, and my favorite person are my best ways that can pamper my heart. When we go out together, we usually go to places which would satisfy our taste buds. I am also excited of sharing it here soon.


This photo was taken when we went to one of the restaurants located on top of a mountain in Cebu province. I'll leave it thrilling as of now for me to share my experience with that restaurant soon on my next posts. I got a lot to share soon which I am excited to do so.

I guess my future posts about our food reviews, cooking blogs, restaurant experiences and reviews, and travel blogs would be my greatest contribution here in the community. I'm excited to learn more about Steemit which I think would be my fuel to keep going.

With that being said, I am also interested in reading blogs about food and places. I'm excited to read blogs about cooking because my special someone loves to cook too, all the time (I do it sometimes only) and so I'll be recommending it to him. I am also excited to meet new friends here.

So this is me in one hot afternoon soaking in a cold spring.

Excited to see more?

Better watch out for my next post.

Maybe it's fitting to end this introductory post by saying, "This is Karen, signing in as a Steemian!"

Thank you for stopping by!

A comment will be highly appreciated to encourage my spirit! XOXO

Hi @misskaren,

Welcome to Steemit!

Steemit is a blockchain-based social media Dapp (decentralized application) that creates communities where users are rewarded for sharing their voice. It's a new kind of attention economy.

Thank you @y0gi! I'll read your recommended post too.

Welcome to the Steem community @misskaren!
We sincerely hope you find everything you are looking for and have found a new home here.

Seven suggestions to consider:

  1. Guard your passwords carefully, and only publish with the posting key,
  2. Use your active key only for wallet transactions, and Keychain,
  3. The owner password is only used to reset compromised passwords,
  4. DO NOT lose your passwords; copy and store offline,
  5. Do not publish other people's work, be it photos or written, without credit, and be sure to source all of your work, even if it is your own.
  6. An introduceyourself tag is used only once, and
  7. Do Not open any links in memos or comments that you do not know who they belong to. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is, so the old saying goes. There is nothing free here.

I found you because @brittandjosie and @jamerussell from @heyhaveyamet presented and promoted your publication to get more exposure and help you grow faster.

If you find yourself overwhelmed and need some guidance, or if you have any questions, there are informed Steemians available who can help you; you can click to go to The Terminal in Discord here:

Have fun and happy Steeming!


Awww... thank you so much for these reminders @jamerussell. Thank you too for resteeming and promoting this post. Still crossing my fingers to get verified. Can't wait to proceed with the next achievement task.
