Sherlene Angeles

Hi there!

My name is Sherlene Angeles, a loan processor, tinkerer, and custodian of memory who is on a journey to find meaning in the everyday mundane through writing and memory-keeping. Founded in 2016, Sherlene Files is a documentation of my growth in the corporate realm when my world revolves around my career journey.

After 5 years of a steady stream, I took on another plunge and rechristened the site Hiraya at Gunita (Of Dreams, Hopes, and Memories). The move is a representation of starting a fresh slate as life unfolds and priorities change.

Now, the space explores living beyond the boxes of the present by documenting the tales of what had been and what could have been. It is home where I would fill the gaps with the words and arts reflecting dreams, hopes, and memories. This is an extension of what I always do – filling pages with moments and putting together souvenirs from the places of the world and the heart.

I share with you the bliss and the nostalgic appeal of a stack of notebooks and boxes of ephemera – all of these special moments immortalized. Going back to our documented days would relive them, bringing us to the rabbit hole of bliss and glory.

One day, we will tell our grandchildren our stories. We will not last an eternity but hopefully, our tales do.

  1. Hello Althea! I hope you’re doing well. Thank you for your kinds words.

    Nervousness is natural. Even the best public speakers experience it. The difference is their ability to control it instead of the other way around. They get anxious but they use it as a motivation to get better on what they do. You only get nervous because it’s something you want, something worth it. Isn’t it?

    Here are other lessons I learned from the numerous job interviews I participated in:

    1. Prepare. Preparation breeds familiarity. Familiarity breeds confidence.
    2. Practice. Practice. Practice. Can’t stress it enough.
    3. Stall if you don’t know the answer yet. Clarify question. Make it smooth and quick.
    4. Use discretion. Every job interview is different.
    5. Don’t fret if you think you didn’t do well. Learn your lessons and apply them to your next one. Or maybe, you’re just paranoid. It happens.

    I hope these help you. Good luck to your job hunt and future endeavors!
