May Reading Wrap Up | ARMYdathon 2021

Hi! Happy June! I hope you're doing fine wherever you are on this Earth. May has been a really great reading month for me as I have finished nine (9) books! I've joined in a readathon called ARMYDATHON and it has really motivated me to pick up and finish the TBR books I've set for it. I…

Links to Love | 02

Today's the last day of May and tomorrow is gonna be the 6th month of the year. Where did the time go?! I'll be doing a lot of pondering through the week and look at how my life has panned out through the last five months. \Anyway, it's been months since I shared a list of links to love…

On Love and Marriage

Growing up, I've always dreamed of finding a person who will love me and who I will love. A few years and a few gut-wrenching heartbreaks later, I am still that girl. In this week's podcast episode, I talked about my views on love and marriage, and how I'm waiting for both while being h…

What Happened in April

This post is a bit late but I just thought I'd publish a life update here since it's been a few weeks since my last entry. How are you guys? How was your April? And how's May coming along? I hope you are all healthy and happy. 😊As I look back, I just realized that last month has been e…

ARMYdathon: A BTS-Inspired Readathon

It's been a year since I've joined a readathon. My last one was the Percydathon June of last year and I kinda went on a reading slump after that. Having been a part of the book community for years (albeit I'm just on the sidelines), I rarely join in readathons because I am terrible at c…

Anecdotes 14 | Bubbly

The dress code was formal and the juniors were to wear pink. I have been anticipating prom for years since I've watched movies about it. When I was finally in my third year in high school, I was ecstatic because finally, the moment has come. Come January and the excitement among my peers was pa…

Fearless (Taylor's Version) 04.09 💛 It was the night things changed.

Fearless was an album full of magic and curiosity, the bliss and devastation of youth. It was the diary of the adventures and explorations of a teenage girl who was learning tiny lessons with every new crack in the facade of the fairytale ending she'd been shown in the movies. - Taylor SwiftFea…

Marriage? Kids? Starting a Family? FOMO is Real

There are times when I find myself in a hole wallowing in self-doubt and self-pity because life is just not perfect and no matter how hard I strive, it will never turn out the way I've always imagined it to be. I've been around the brighter side the past few weeks and I thought it was going…

Random Thoughts About Death

A family friend died a week ago. He was a priest, beloved by many, my grandmother being one of them. I don't know him that well, only that he was the one in-charge of Dapit Alim - a shrine located near our home. Though I don't know him that well, I have always known him to be the priest my …

The Happy List Vol. 09

I've been thinking of a good intro for this blog post for the past 2 hours now but I still haven't thought of anything so I said fuck it and just write whatever is at the top of my mind. We're through with March's first week, how was it for you? It was eventful for me. I had a coupl…

Links to Love | 01

February has been a roller coaster. Aside from family issues I won't discuss here, I've been having a series of battles within my inner self. I don't have the words to voice out all of these anxieties and in the past few weeks, my journal has become my only confidante. Albeit there are …

I Miss the Outside World

Hi. How are you? I hope life is treating you well. And I hope you're happy and healthy. 😊 I'll say I'm okay, but things have happened in my small bubble and I'm just praying that we'll get through all of these. I've been at home since September. Haven't really gotten ou…

Renee Reacts: True Beauty

I started watching True Beauty last week after putting it off for a month. I thought it was time to watch the Kdrama because it will end soon. 
I'm a big fan of the Webtoon and I seriously did not know how to feel about the kdrama when it came out knowing that the webtoon was still on-going. Eve…
