The other day, I came across this podcast called "Ologies with Alie Ward". Its content are discussions about certain ologies or subjects of study like Volcanology, Primatology, Paleontology, etc. The host, Alie, interviews professionals who are knowledgeable about the topics or the ology for that certain episode and she lets them share facts and stories… Continue reading Something I Really Miss
Let's be real, we had a shitty year! But for the sake of the spirit of Christmas, I am going to write about the things I found that I am still grateful for this year. Because yes, 2020 is absolute shit (sorry I have no other words to describe it) but I believe that if… Continue reading Things I am Still Grateful for this 2020
I'm on a really weird place right now. I really don't know what to do with everything in my life. I haven't read a book since May, and I haven't painted anything since September. I haven't been really writing anything and I haven't really watched anything as well either. I'm not doing anything, really. I… Continue reading Yow! Idk
I was cleaning and sorting and reorganizing my stuff in the boarding house when I found the first artwork I made this year. It is a portrait of DAY6's Sungjin and it was dated January 12. I remember that the moment I was finishing the artwork, Taal Volcano was already erupting unbeknownst to us. Despite… Continue reading What Now
Eleven months after being a MyDay and we are now on my third comeback with DAY6. This is the first time that I actually felt so involved. I was a silent and passive MyDay before. But this time I decided to support them pretty actively. Ah! So many things happened prior to their comeback. It… Continue reading The Book of Us: The Demon by DAY6
In a couple of hours, I am going to turn 27. It's a different world when you are on the other side of 25, no? Suddenly, it feels like you are not in your twenties anymore, even though technically you still are. It's like whoops, I'm pushing 30s already. Tumatanda ka na self. My idealistic… Continue reading On being 27
Title: Anna and the Swallow Man Author: Gavriel Savit Rating: 6.5/10 On November 6, 1939, Anna's father had to go away for a few hours. He left shortly after eleven o'clock.

Title: The Giver Author: Lois Lowry Rating: 7/10 Now, I wish I have read this sooner. I'm not sure but I think I would have appreciated this better had I read this when I was younger. It's a children book per se but I believe that it would have helped me a lot in appreciating… Continue reading Book Thoughts | The Giver
Title: We Are Okay Author: Nina LaCour Rating: 8/10 Soooooo, someone stayed in a book store for three hours today, sitting on a couch devouring this little gem of a book. Someone also shamelessly cried while sitting on said couch and wiped her tears and snot on the sleeves of her cardigan because she had… Continue reading Book Thoughts | We Are Okay
What day are we on this ECQ? Ah, it's been a month. Supposedly, yesterday was the last day of ECQ but since it was extended for another couple of weeks, we are all still trying to do our part by staying in our homes. So what am I up to nowadays? Nothing much really. I… Continue reading On Body Clock, Routines, etc.
Title: What We See In The Stars Author: Kelsey Oseid Rating: 7/10 I remember wanting to get this book since 2018. I almost even bought a 2019 calendar version of this but somehow, I only got to purchase this last January, three days after I told myself that I wouldn't but any new books this… Continue reading Book Thoughts | What We See In the Stars
I woke up today in a video of Andrew Lloyd Webber playing "All I Ask of You" during his isolation. And while I was watching, I got really overwhelmed by these emotions I can't describe and I suddenly teared-up. I was not sure why I did but I just thought, "How can humans create such… Continue reading On Art, Artists, etc.
