This Country is So Hopeless, It’s Driving Me Crazy

Day 26/30 → Oh what do you know, our high and mighty president is making rounds on social media and the current events scene once again. And if you’re Filipino, you’ve probably guessed it right: it’s because of his filthy mouth and lack of common decency. I can’t even say I’m surprised because this is not … Continue reading This Country is So Hopeless, It’s Driving Me Crazy

Body Shaming Every-freaking-where

Day 25/30 → Most people think that body shaming only affects people who are fat (meant as a fact, not as an insult). Apparently, these people think that only larger-sized human beings fall victim to the heartless people who body shame and that they are the only ones who have feelings.

I turned on the TV and went straight to channel 23 — then aptly named as Studio 23. We … Continue reading My Love Affair with Seattle Grace

Of Life’s Greatest Frustration

I have always wanted to be an amazing writer — one that people look up to; one that others use as an inspiration; one who’s proud and confident of her work. I am nowhere near any of those. Sure, I write better than some people. Sure, my grammar’s good and my vocabulary’s okay. But it … Continue reading Of Life’s Greatest Frustration

#HereTogether at the Metro Manila Pride Festival 2017

Yesterday, June 24th, we celebrated the 23rd annual — the longest in South East Asia and almost as old as I am — Metro Manila Pride March Festival. It was technically my 2nd time to attend but it was my 1st time to actually join the march. And to say that the experience was nothing … Continue reading #HereTogether at the Metro Manila Pride Festival 2017
