Merry Christmas! I hope everyone had a meaningful holiday, and if you didn’t – chin up, bucko, it’s not the end of the world. I was dicking around on the Internet and procrastinating working on a book review for this blog when I came across this Christmas tag done by Krishel, and thought I’d do … More Ho Ho Ho and A Christmas Tag!
Like most of the rest of the free world, I was able to watch The Last Jedi (shoutout to Globe for the free tickets lmao). And, like the fangirl that I am (please note that Rogue One dragged me kicking and screaming back into this fandom, which I thought I had left behind in high … More The Last Jedi’s Lesson on Trust, Respect, and Leadership
I spent ten minutes dithering over an email, the cursor hovering over the send button. Attached to the email was my final term paper for PA208 – the last requirement I had to pass before my semester was officially over. I mentally ran through my “preflight check”. I had proofread twice, checked all my citations, … More Life Lately #4: Officially back from the dead, y’all!
Okay, wow, this installment of #IKansaiClearlyNow is so late. I’m so sorry. You know how it is. Academics, work, social life – sometimes I wonder how I’m still alive, haha. For our third and fourth in Japan, we explored our “home base”, Osaka. We didn’t have as much activities planned for these days, so we … More #IKansaiClearlyNow: Osaka + Universal Studios Japan
So I was planning on consistently blogging about this trip each day, but tiredness got the better of me. Here I am, sitting in Kansai International Airport waiting for our flight to Taipei, and I’m only just now typing up the second part of my #IKansaiClearlyNow series. For day two (three, technically, but I don’t … More #IKansaiClearlyNow Pt. 2: Nara Park + Dōtonbori
Hello from the Land of the Rising Sun! In particular, hello from Osaka! This is my first time blogging from a different country, so please forgive my enthusiasm! (See, all of those sentences ended with exclamation points.) This series, #IKansaiClearlyNow, is going to be my travel diary for the six days my family and I … More #IKansaiClearlyNow Pt. 1: Arrival + Kyoto
My midterms are over, which means I’m halfway through the semester! The circles under my eyes are darker, I rarely get more than four to five hours of sleep a night, and I’ve lost weight (not good, because my weight loss is from not having the time to eat rather than actively dieting and exercising), … More Life Lately #3
Starting the second week of the new month with a Blogger Interaction post, because I’m kapalmuks like that! (Also, this draft has been sitting in my Google Drive since September. Sorry to those who nominated me, Thea and Krishel!) Award rules: List the rules. Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog. … More Blogger Interactions: Mystery Blogger Award
…at ang hustisya ay para lang sa mayaman. I took up at least a week reflecting on whether or not I would write this post. After all, everything I experienced last Thursday was not only deeply personal – it was highly controversial. But then I thought, you know what, this is my blog, and anyone … More Hangga’t marami ang lugmok sa kahirapan…
Written freeform on September 16, 2017 at 11:30 in the evening. I was tipsy thanks to a lot of wine, packed full to bursting with risotto, salad, and pizza, and more than a little emotional when James Arthur’s Say You Won’t Let Go came on the radio. Six years ago, on a rainy August evening, I … More And I’ll thank my lucky stars for that night
