I cannot believe that it’s been ages since I last personally wrote to everyone who was interested in whatever the f*ck I wanted to say on my blog. I know it sucks that I mostly act like a ghost in here. But hey, I guess it’s reasonable that I publish updates now.
- I earned my Bachelor’s degree in majoring in English. I marched last April in the PICC Plenary Hall. I’m one of the surviving graduates of Polytechnic University of the Philippines Batch 2016. Also I’m one of the fortunate ones to graduate with Latin honors.
- I’ve started working in my Alma Mater, De La Salle Araneta University (I went to this school for High School) in the Lasallian Language Center as an ESL Teacher. I’m on my second month as an employee.
- I’m still the same old me. Worked up about the things I want to do, the places I want to go and the things I want to keep in life. For the mean time, this will be enough. I will keep buying things I need to survive and save up for the beautiful things I want to make living the now more fun and interesting than I expected and dreamed.
Cheers to exiting the university life. Behold the gate; there it is, waiting for me. All I have to do is step outside, keep walking and just let life happen as it does.

PS: I hope to put up more photos, posts and weekly stuff to make this blog more exciting. Ayt? I love y’all.
I’m nearing the midterm of the second to the last semester of my college life. (I swear, I wanted to call “college life” something else; crap, I suck). Today marks one of the most significant life events of mine so far. I guess, I should keep the latter private. Nonetheless, I’m actually conflicted with what to emphasize and what to say… but along with others, I have lost a friend. It’s been days and of course, we have not moved on. BUT THE RAIN. Oh, the rain keeps pouring and it will keep pouring for two more days.
This school week lost four out of five days. Technically, it’s an entire week of suspension due to the hard rains brought by two typhoons. I must say for this wave, we’ve all been prepared and rather organized. There weren’t much casualties so I guess my countrymen survived the initial wave of rainstorms.
No, I’m not going to talk about the friend that I lost. We aren’t close but it is painful to lose someone the way I did; the way we all did.
And the load of academic readings, work and adjustments won’t be any easy for sure. The anxiety, the pressure and all that poisons the mind slowly caves in. And it’s actually working to smash my determination into a million angry pieces. That’s actually not a good news. But because I’m still rather conflicted with the turn of events, I choose to settle down and refrain from assessing my academic endeavors. It’s freaking me out even so I should probably stop and take a break.
This day marks the day that I was set free. Shackles left me wounded though. And as I forced myself to move on, I found myself healing my cuts with antiseptic which stung me like hell. For quite some time, I believed I’d have to stay there forever. Except, forever did not exist in such context.
Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to remind you that you deserve so much more than being mistreated. You deserve to evolve to a better version of you. Everyday is a puzzle piece that would complete you so make it count. You always have a choice. There is always a way even when you least expect, wish and hope for it.
…and that has been me being sappy and feeling surreal about the turn of events for the past year. If I do deserve to be happy no matter how much of a bitch I have been, you deserve to be happy too. We all do. Choose that and act on it.
If you happened to have noticed the last entry before this, “The Girl in the Washing Machine,” it’s actually a short story. The story had been conceptualized as I needed help to make up a cartoon tv show for a homework and of course, I had to think of something unusual and exciting. My bestfriend helped me out in the process. [I can’t plug him here, he doesn’t have a blog anyway, plus he seems to want to keep himself incognito from everyone else. Anyway, thank you, Page. BUT I will try and yank him out to blog for fun or something.]
So! Please do enjoy the story of “Johnny and Clay.” If I ever find the inspiration, I will surely keep you posted here. If you have further questions or if you happen to have insights about the story, let me know. It sure is awesome to hear from your readers, yeah?
Alright. Laundry work beckons.
PS: Laundry is fun. I actually like that better than washing dishes. [Why did I say that?]
I have to admit how hard it is to brainstorm for more stories for “Halle and the Godmother.” If I fail to devise other schemes to make that work, I’d probably just take it down and reorganize; move it somewhere perhaps.
Anyways, hi! I hope you liked the new look here in my blog. I know it still sucks because it does not really have nice images. If anything, I’m not really the type of blogger who posts a lot of pictures. It’s not really my thing; besides, I’m not a good good photographer myself so I’d rather not risk. But it is nice to still have the courage and the energy to recreate this blog, no?
So yeah. I still haven’t got anything from followers. No decent comments. No nothing. [Uhh. I guess I don’t mind????] But it’s alright.
I seriously suck for not updating in a long while again. I feel like every single time I’ll update I’m going to have to catch up with everyone. It seriously sucks how I’m not consistent all the time [paradox intended]. Nonetheless, I was really prompted to write something new; something I’ve never done before…because why the heck not.
Anyway, check out “Halle and the Godmother.” If you have a thing for all those princessy thing, you should try and read it. I want to hear from you guys too. I’m sure that’ll be fun. Talk to you soon~
PS: It’s summer break. Yay.
Been a while. Basically, I’ve been tied tightly down to my studies. I did not have the opportunity to post new stuff. But here’s good news! I have found in my archive that I have lots of stuff in store for you, readers [which I cannot actually call my fans]. I think I’m going to bombard my blog with some pieces.
Oh and by the way… Most of these pieces were written a long time ago. This might be a good time for me to peer through time and check out what used to be. I actually this is going to be fun as we all get to realize how amazing the joy of learning is. Tell then.

PS: I’ll prolly be exposing stuff more using this “Dear Reader” section. These posts will be short. I’m sure no one would even dare check this part out but hey. I tried.
