Sunday Session

This marks the third Sunday straight that I’ve spent with Martini and Iris.  It became a recent habit for us to be with each other every single day. We’re that clingy. YES. P.S. PHOTOS WERE TAKEN WITH MY PHONE (NOT THE BEST QUALITY!!!) PLEASE JUDGE ACCORDINGLY.     Advertisements

Realizations after the floodwaters hit my city

September 22, 2017 I was looking forward to buying a pack of spicy peanuts from a stand outside the campus gates. It was a very lazy day for me. I literally had no classes for today for various reasons. By 5:30 pm, the rain began to pour. Feeling a little disappointed, I ended up buying a…

From a 5th year Uni student to you

Hi. I’m almost done with the first semester for my last year in college. Yes, I’m in my fifth year, and no I’m not an engineering major or a repeater. I’m taking up this double-degree program where I get to take up two different degrees at the same time. Yes, I’m gonna get two diplomas…

My last team building with The Spectrum!

Maybe most of you know that I’m part of my University’s school paper. For the past five school years, I have been a member of The Spectrum. June 2019 would be my sixth year but I have to graduate at some point, right? It was the last week of August when the publication had their…

Here’s to t w e n t y – o n e, 93 days later.

The last post I wrote related to ‘aging’ was when I just had turned 20. I was meant to write during my birth month but somehow I didn’t find the time to do so. Since it’s day four of my 5-day break from Uni, and I’m sort of inspired to write, here I am, writing…

Having the grit to face life

I’ve been wanting to write for a while but I haven’t made the time to do so. In my Tax 1 class, my professor shared her first-born’s whereabouts in life. She’s not the usual professor who would just come inside the room open a textbook and teach; most of the time she’s motivating us to…

The Perfect Man

Recently I found myself back to my old boy-crazed self and for the past few weeks, BOYS are all I ever talk and think about (This is not related to Charlie XCX’s new song ‘BOYS’!!!!) But it got me thinking about my idea of a ‘Perfect Man’ – this was after I re-watched one of…

Prompt:Why I started a blog

    I was writing down song lyrics on my notebook when I stopped because I didn’t know how to spell “enough.” I remember the spelling bee I was in during first grade where I misspelled the words “jewelry” and “women.” Looking back at it now, I guess that was the Universe telling me that…

Dear Diary: A Spoken word Poetry

In lieu of my Mental Health Awareness Campaign, The Butterfly Effect, I was invited by a friend, campaigning for the same thing, for her spoken word event tomorrow, February 12th. Unprepared I made a last-minute piece that aims to make people aware how people who don’t show physical signs of mental illness aren’t always alright….

The Year I Finally Fulfill My Resolutions

This year will be my year. I’ve dealt with enough shit the past year, and like Michelle Pfeiffer’s character in the 2011 holiday film, New Year’s Eve, Ingrid Withers (yes, the one Zac Efron kissed!) She was able to fulfill her resolutions, but hopefully I won’t be ticking them off hours before 2017 ends.
