Bacani chooses to always go through the untrodden paths, the maverick's route.
Through her blogsite http://xyzabacaniphotography.com/ she writes away , as if speaking to you and me up close, knowingly conscious of more than a thousand growing number of followers dodging her thoughts , feelings, and perspectives on living and loving life.
Bacani writes: " I woke up this morning light headed and excited. I haven’t been like this for weeks now. The stupid emo shit is over , I guess. I just need to focus on things that (make) me happy. And what else can make me happy but photography? I shoot and shoot until my fingers are sore. I checked my photos awhile ago and I can say I shoot my feelings away. One interviewer asked me what differentiates me from other photographers, I laughed (at this), because, is there such a thing? Aren’t we all different? All I know is I shoot with my feelings. I will explain that soon. So yeah, Happy Sunday everyone. Keep spreading the love. Apir! ( "Up here" "High Five")
"Being accepted is huge happiness for me," she says, grateful for all the global attention . "So guys, just stay happy, keep on spreading the love," she writes to her growing audience through her blog site.

" But part of my personality is that I never quit. I learned it from CAT in high school and ROTC in college. Quitters never win they say,and it's true! I took it as a challenge. There was a time when I did not stop submitting even though all of (my entries) got rejected. I did not listen to the annoying voice inside me,telling me to stop and look for another pool that will appreciate my images. That time, I just kept on submitting my works."
"It may be shallow to some but it feels like victory to me. Here is the link.
"Sometimes I'm quite attached to some things I own, like my old Chuck Taylor (which) has been with me for more than ten years. I can not wear it anymore but I still keep it. Well, just because (they) were my first Chucks! I always keep the “firsts” in my life except my first boyfriend whom I can not even remember his last name now. Lol"
