Do you block the past? Unfriend it? Unfollow it? Or should I just ignore it, like some classy kind of revenge?

sumakay ako sa jeepney…

WARNING: Semi-rant post Tuwing sumasakay ako ng jeep, parang lagi na lang ako nakakaencounter ng mga namamalimos of all sorts. Minsan, nandyan yung mga ‘naglilinis’ ng sapatos (pero di talaga linis, mapahid lang talaga), tapos manghihingi afterwards ng bayad after nilang ipahid yung maliliit na clothing. Tapos nandyan din yung mga may dala-dalang medical records,…

Day #2: Something I Feel Strongly About

I don’t even know where to start here. I want to rant about a lot of things from gender inequality, women, rape, patriarchy, social hierarchy, STS, terrorism, Trump, extrajudicial killings, Death Penalty, china, Lumads, Philippine massacres, farmers, racism, sexism, anti-intellectualism, to no work, no pay, etc. etc. But I don’t want to summarize all my…

Innang

I wrote this entry on my journal last 09/13/15 months after my grandmother died. I miss her so much already. 09/13/15 I just remembered writing earlier that if I don’t write on a daily basis, bad things will happen, and I swear it to the moon. Apparently, I failed.

Infidelity: A Quest for Novelty

This is another paper that I did for our Eng 11 class. I kind of enjoyed doing this, although it was very stressful, because I had to cram this whole thing.

Day#1: Five Ways To Win Your Heart

So, I’ll be doing the 30 Day Blog Challenge today. I know, I know. Today is already July 7, and the month is 31 days and not 30, as the challenge suggests, but I want to do this particular blog challenge because I love to write about the things that are in this challenge’s list….

Good Pinoy Music #1: Walang Hanggan – Quest

“Ang sabi mo walang hanggan / Ba’t nandito tayo, sa dulo?” “‘Wag ka munang tumalikod / Bumalik ka muna dito / Padampi kahit anino / Ayokong mag-isa dito” Kanina lang, habang nagsasound-trip ako sa YouTube ay napadpad ako sa nawawalang kayamanan na ‘to. Pakinggan niyo, please. Sobrang nakakapangilabot. Tumaas balahibo ko sa boses nung kumakanta….

Dear Dayari

.Ang tagal ko na pa lang ‘di nakakapagsulat dito nang matino kasi mostly, puro reblog na lang ako ng mga mamaw na tula. Actually, marami akong gustong isulat at ilabas kaya lang medyo naho-hold back na ko kasi medyo marami-rami na rin yung nagbabasa sa blog ko. Kapag nagsisimula kasi akong magsulat, may naiisip ako…
