The Truth Behind The Silence

July 18, 2017

I don’t know where to start. It has been a long time since I wrote something so personal. So bear with me, this might be a bit heavy on the heart and a bit tiring to the eyes. Continue Reading

The Untold Story of the Ws and H of my Blogging History

January 21, 2016

I’ve been blogging for almost 10 years now and I feel so old just thinking about it. In the past blogs I’ve made (yes, blogs, with an s because I’ve been platform hopping since 2007), I never really talked about how I started, who inspired me, but most of the time, I’ve mentioned in a blog series or two the reason WHY I blog. I’ve been really clear about this ever since that I blog to express myself and not to impress, something I learned in campus journalism back when I was in grade school. Continue Reading

A Letter From My 19-Year Old Self

September 1, 2015

I was fixing the books and notebooks (mostly empty) I have in my room the other day when a piece of paper, the words written on it almost dissolving or something of that sort. That itself was a sure sign that the ink has been spilled there for years.

When a Rock this Intangible Hits You Hard

June 17, 2015

It has been two months.

Two months since I last updated my blog, and two months since I actually had the drive to write something. A lot of people have been asking me if I was only on hiatus, or if I actually decided that I should stop blogging. I have only myself to blame for being unable to write more often. Laziness and the desire to rest and do other things have actually taken its toll on me and no matter how much I wanted to write, my mind was either too exhausted or I was just stuck on the first sentence of a post and couldn’t continue anymore. My drafts have been piling up. My ideas come and go like the wind.  I’ve hit writer’s block. And when a rock that intangible hits you hard, what do you do? Continue Reading

Farewell, 2014!

December 31, 2014

On the first day of 2014, I did this post where I made a list of stuff related to 2013. I’ll be making it a tradition of some sort just for a quick recap of how my 2014 went. It’s always fun (and a bit sad) to look back and reflect on what happened and remember the lessons you’ve learned or what made you happy. And I think it’s really good to share it with other people because maybe they need even a little ounce of motivation, too! Because it’s 2014, I’ll be specifying 14 things in each list!
