30 Day Writing Challenge — Two Weeks After

It has been exactly two weeks since I set out to do this writing challenge. I thought it was going to be easy since I’ve managed to post every single weekday last month. But this time around, I’m really struggling.

What I thought was going to be a walk in the part turned out to be a much more difficult task — one that’s really pushing me to the edge.Read More »

A Social-Media-Challenged Millennial

I was born in the early ’90s; am currently in my 20s; and have an account on basically every social media platform out there. By definition, I’m a millennial through and through. However, if there’s one thing about being a millennial that I can’t fully grasp is, well, social media.

Adulting Should Come with A Warning Label and A Cancel Button

Disclaimer: This is not me wanting to feel superior or pretending that I’m smarter and better than others. This is me ranting, as always, and pointing out these annoying and very very common grammar mistakes that a lot of Filipinos make. While English is my first language (since I was one of those kids who was raised speaking in English and only got to learn Filipino in school), I’m far from being an expert at it.

Athough most people — friends, peers, and acquaintances alike — would often refer to me as a grammar nazi (because I have a bad habit of correcting people’s grammar and pronunciations), I admittedly still make a lot of grammar mistakes myself.Read More »

Racist vs Superiority Complex: A Glimpse at the Filipino Culture

I rarely talk about current events these days. First because I’ve become out of the loop ever since cutting down my Facebook time. And second, I just don’t want to be bothered by the goings-on in the world for the time being.

Not that I don’t give an iota about what’s happening but it just came to a point where all the crap has gone extremely migraine-inducing that I just could not give it so much as 2 seconds out of my 24-hour day.Read More »
