Nine

In the past few days, I wanted to write something beautiful. By beautiful I mean I want something romantic and hurtful. A poem or a short article. Something that would hit the hearts of my readers. Something relatable to the brokenhearted. Too bad, I can't relate to this feeling that I want to write down. …

Tired

[Disclaimer: Too tired to proofread. This is raw.] I've been up and working since 7 AM today. I had a really loooong day learning about data privacy, computing social media metrics, and preparing a proposal for a big collab project. Sounds like I got my life figured out, right? Truth is, I am so lost …

Thank God!

I'm getting married! Finally I can say this now. I've been waiting, praying, and dreaming for this all of my life, and now, I can't believe this is really it. In 7 months, I will marry my ultimate childhood crush, my godbrother, my bestfriend, and boyfriend for nine years. God knows how much I've waited …

Korean

Over lunch and dinner today, we were talking about Korean. I just watched a 5-minute short film about a couple who was struggling from their long-term relationship.

Blue sky

Over beer and with good friends, a colleague asked: in a blue sky scenario, what would you be doing with your life? Without batting an eyelash, I answered, "I want to be a volunteer teacher in a mountainous community, particularly in Tacayan, Capiz." I went there two years ago, and met little boys who have …

Success

What is success for you? I came across an article featuring five millennials who are said to be successful because of their high-paying jobs. Their biggest achievements include getting an insurance, founding a company, or getting big time clients, among others. However, if you would look closer, there is a pattern on the consequences that …

Love

I just want to be close to you, love. I want to know you, so I can love you more. I want to learn how you were in the past, and what I should look forward to in the future. I want to know your quirks, your likes. What makes you happy, what makes you …
