This is a story about a boy who is not for me.
It’s crazy that in the face of tragedy, our first instinct as a nation is to place the blame. Aside from the “this is Duterte’s fault” and “to anyone blaming Duterte for this, go to hell” posts, I saw posts saying that the Philippines is an ugly country for having more #PrayforParis than #PrayforDavao tweets. How come, that in the middle of people dying in the South and the metro being on high-alert for another attack, some people had the time to check the tweet count and be mad about it?
They say it’s called a ‘crush’ because it’s going to crush your heart But, you see, I never really understood that No, not because I get all the boys I just don’t pay that much attention to boys at all And the few ones I’ve developed feelings for Are the ones who noticed me first […]
Surprise! I have two ex-boyfriends! I broke up with the first one in 2014 although we kept seeing each other until I left for Singapore in 2015, and with the second one a little over a month ago. Both of these relationships were never public. I didn’t introduce both of them to my family and […]

Five years later, we met at a gathering our college friends arranged. Five years later and I realized your smile used to be my favorite thing. Out of the blue, I shocked all of you. I went on the stage and decided to play the keyboard. Last time we met, I didn’t even know how […]
Since I am coming from a six-month drought (almost doing nothing productive with my life), now that I have responsibilities again, sometimes it gets hard for me to be consistent. I feel that there’s so much to do — to read, to watch, to learn — and I get so excited that I try to […]
I was not a planner type of person. For as long as I can remember, I was the happy-go-lucky kind. My life always went according to my parents’ plans anyway so I never really worried about missing out on anything. I was content with what I had. Plus, nobody introduced me to “planning”, like with […]
“Question: How does a girl who falls — no actually, she jumps — eyes open, down a rabbit hole, plummeting into chaos, come out the other end unchanged? The answer: She doesn’t.” *** Every year before her birthday, she writes something that’s basically about her — how she felt during the past year, how she changed, how […]
