2018 Work + Life Updates (New Book, Going to School, etc)

Hi! Obviously haven’t really been active writing lately. Even my journal has been abandoned for reasons I will try to articulate once I have more free time. I just had a few sips of rosé post-work day (lol) and thought of putting up something here. Some updates below! My new book comes out this month […]

50% of 2018: Recap + Roundup + Realizations

I’m lying in bed on a Sunday night, feeling sick (or I actually am), still on vacation mode (forced; because I’ve been feeling under the weather since last week), just finished watching two films, and realizing I miss writing daily things so much. I stopped keeping a daily journal and only write when I feel […]

En Route: Drifting

I’m not sure how to start this post. If you’ve been reading my blog since 2014/2015, you’d know I always go to La Union for some specific reason. But for the first time (ever), I didn’t have any particular agenda when I booked a trip to LU last month, complete with my laptop (I was […]

Everything’s An Experiment (For Now)

I feel like a huge chunk of my 2018 is about experimentations. Lots of trial and error, actually. Not necessarily in the creative sense, but if it counts that I’m trying out new mediums like graphite and gouache for a change (I’m sorry, I love watercolor, but I’m getting a bit sick of it), then […]

En Route: #ABCngapore Year 4

En Route to Changi airport via SMRT East West Line | 10:34PM, Thursday, March 1 I visit Singapore every year since 2014. Okay, I visit Japan every year too (since 2014 too lol), but this is different. Four years ago, I flew to Singapore a few months before my college graduation (and after thesis—around summertime) […]

My Third Work Anniversary

Deciding to write this is one of the most impulsive tasks I’ll ever do, only because I never write about these things anymore. Is it because I’m busy? More often that not, yes. As much as my job requires me to be on social media 100% of the time, I find myself keeping a lot […]

En Route: Eastern Europe

Context: I spent long bus rides drawing or writing…and there’s a few paragraphs I managed to save on my phone (the rest are on my analog journals). Last Christmas our family went to Eastern Europe for the last days of 2017. Initially I thought it would be another trip in passing that I’d probably not […]

Things I’m Reading this February

One of my readers asked me about the things I liked reading. “Why?”, I asked. It was because I apparently have deep vocabulary…and I laughed. Lol. Having been writing for most of my life (if teenage angst diary writing counts), I may have been spending most of my time immersed in books and lots of […]

Twenty Five

Previous birthday posts: Twenty one  | Twenty two | Twenty three | Twenty four  Every year, I find a different way to start writing this birthday post. I won’t even start with “I’m 25 today!” because obviously, the blog post title gives it away. LOL. I’m freaking twenty five years old, I can’t believe it. Some of you might say “hay ang […]
