    Moving Out Is Only Fun When You Think About It

      I know what you’re thinking and I fairly understand your dilemma of your nosy parents being up your arse in all things you do.

    Esto Quod Es (Be What You Are)

      I’ve never been a fan of self portraits. I grew up believing that I’m not for the camera; lest, if I can even fit in the frame. I always shy away from the sight of the lens and made sure that I’m no more than a background making all others look good before me. [&hellip...

    Mornings with Mama

        I was told that she only has a few days left and there’s nothing else that can be done. My world crumbled to pieces; the lights dimmed in the hallway where I was standing and breathing became harder as every second pass. I couldn’t open my mouth, speak a word, or lest, look [&hellip...

    Why I Failed Mathematics

      Many of my friends wouldn’t believe me if I say I’m a total failure when it comes to mathematics most especially those who have personally witnessed my math prowess (naks!) in doing large amount mental calculations in a jiffy.

    Revolutionary Undertakings

      In 2011, when I landed a new job in an IT company earning a little less than PHP 18,000/month (gross) without any benefits; I was scared. I didn’t have insurance, healthcare, or at least an emergency fund to pull whenever things would go wrong. I was just almost a year out of college shouldering all expenses [&hellip...

    Kubot, The Aswang Chronicles 2

    I remember years back when I was still a gullible little kid believing every myth that my parents would tell me; I would always go inside our house at around 5:30PM in the afternoon or so. I might extend being outside for 15 minutes more or less, but I always made sure that I’m already [&hellip...

    Je T’aime

      Aimer, ce n’est pas se regarder l’un l’autre, c’est regarder ensemble dans la mêmedirection.   “My longing is unquenchable; like a desert in my throat.
