Are you one of the guys who do nothing at home and want to earn extra but are conflicted between taking a rest and doing part time job?

Here’s a thing that will allow you to work and stay at home at the same time. Online job. There are tons and tons of advertisements in the Internet that offer freelance online job BUT here’s the catch: most of them are paid!

We are looking for an online job because we need extra cash so it would be a little difficult to let go a few money in order to work, right?

I perfectly understand that!

But I have found a site that will allow you to work for  free online jobs. And this is legit for I have been using this myself. And no, this free online job does not require you to market the site. You know, the usual click and bait thing nor does it require you to be qualified first before you can get paid. This free online job site also do not necessitate you to acquire certain amount first before you can withdraw your money.

Excited yet? Here we go. This micro job site that offers free online job is called Fiverr.  I discovered this last year and when I first got it, I was confused.

What is Fiverr?

Fiver is a free online job site that allows you to create your own account where you get to upload information about your services, or as they call it, gigs. These gigs should be what you can do. And what you are really good at! It can be painting, writing, editing, web development, voice over, singing, composing and so on. It is called Fiverr because their flat rate is $5.  But you get to decide what $5 can do for your clients.

This is the minimum rate which means that you can charge more depending on the requirements of the project.

How do you get paid?

You get paid online and you can track your payments via your site. You get paid via PayPal and other online payment methods. Check this info so you can get more details.

How do I get noticed if I am a newbie?

Easy peasy! This free online job site promotes newbies! Yes they do. During my first three months, I always receive promotional emails that include my gigs in it! So this is not like other free online job pages where you almost don’t get a chance unless you pay so your account becomes premium whatsoever.

Things to remember:

1. Your gigs must be the thing you are good at because clients will give you reviews and for every positive rating and review the more chances you get to be introduced to more clients. You can even write a review for your client as well.

2. Be alert. Check your email every day. Your response to clients is also rated; they want to know how soon you can respond to questions. Be sure you are always responsive.

3. Be accurate with your services. What is inclusive in your $5 service? How soon can you deliver? How many words can you write? How many people can you draw in one project? Will you be using SEO? Will you edit? Add effects to voice? Do you also write the script? If it needs to be delivered, is it for free? How much will you charge for that?

How do I get Clients?

Like I said, this free online job site does not require you to ‘apply’ for a job. Clients will be the ones to communicate with you. But you can increase your chances by promoting your gigs via social media. It is for free. In Fiverr, free online job hunt is a piece of cake!

Post Graduate Scholarship (MEXT)

Do you want to study abroad but you have financial issues?
Well, that is something you no longer have to worry about.

Just last month, I was introduced by my friend to the MEXT Scholarship. What is MEXT? It is a scholarship given to any individuals by the Japanese Embassy. And the good thing is, here in the Philippines, the MEXT Scholarship has been available.

Yes, for a couple of decades now, The Japanese Embassy here in the Philippines, together with some local government agencies, has been granting scholarships to people who would wish to pursue graduate studies in Japan. My friend who is also a MEXT Scholar and has been in Japan for some time shares how he was able to pass the screening in his website.

What’s for sure is that the MEXT Scholarship grant covers your monthly expenses, tuition fee and allowances. The Embassy will also pay for your plane tickets. All you have to do is to pass the screenings here which is comprised of document submissions, interviews and exams and then apply to the University of your choice in Japan. It grants scholarships under five programs (which I cannot discuss here) and one of which is Research.

In Japan it is recommended by Universities to become a Research Student first before you can pursue either Masters or Doctoral. This program is called a non-degree program. If you wish to know more you may visit your own Japanese Embassy website. The application forms are readily available for download but the application forms for Research will only be available about March.

In an overview, here is what you need to prepare in order to be granted the MEXT Scholarship (Research):

1. Diploma, Recommendation Letters (2-3), TOR and any other abstracts that will give you advantage, say a copy of your thesis
2. Completed application forms downloaded from the Japanese Embassy Website
3. An acceptance letter from a Research Supervisor
4. Acceptance letter from the University of your choice

What is a Research Supervisor?

This is someone from the University who is willing to be your advisor while you’re on campus. You need to visit a University website where a list of Research Faculties is available. Communicate with them regarding your intent to be under their supervision.

Acceptance Letter?

You need to communicate with the Admissions Office of the University of your choice. Based on my experience, they are very accommodating. They will even send you a list of what you need to do.

If you want to search for a University, you may want to visit this website.

What I also noticed is this: some course you prefer to take may not be offered in one University only. Say, there are some Universities that are more into Sciences or Engineering therefore, may not offer graduate courses on Mass Media. But if you wish to pursue Post Graduate Degrees on International Communication, Media or Journalism Studies, you may want to consider these:

Hokkaido University
Waseda University
Sophia University

These are the three Universities I found that offer courses on Mass Media/Mass Communication and so far, Hokkaido was the first to respond.

Someday I Will Have To Go Too

“Alan Rickman dies of cancer at 69”

Death is Inevitable

One of the saddest things about growing up is seeing the people you thought you’ve known all your life become lifeless one after the other. It’s like you leave for a couple of moments and you come back and someone is missing, or someone has married, became a parent, got divorced, got a job. Or the park that used to be filled with children becomes empty or becomes filled with new faces.

Then it dawns on you that maybe we are all meant to be alone in the future. Until it’s your own time to be gone. You sit in one corner, you drink coffee instead of juice, you eat a piece of bread instead of candies and you think ‘I just grew up, what the heck happened?’ You look around and the familiar faces became too few until you are absolutely nonexistent in the lives of whoever occupied the empty houses around you. Your playmates are not there, your friends are not around… Your neighbours, they have all gone.

You hold onto your cane and say to yourself, ‘Yeah. I would want to go too.’
You just grew up, what the heck happened? Where did they all go?

I remember when I was little I wanted so much to become an adult… if anyone told me it could be this empty, I would have savoured my childhood more.

To the kids who felt older than their age, to the kid in me who wanted to grow up, what were you thinking?
