This is not goodbye

Hi, blog and blog readers out there. It's me (who else?).I've been thinking...I've been blogging for a decade, I think? Or is it more than that now?I've always loved writing down my thoughts and sharing them in this little space. Writing has been second nature to me, just like brea…

Renee's Sunday Currently Vol. 13

Hello! Happy Sunday! How was your weekend? Mine was great. I did nothing but paint and watch Netflix shows. I've really taken my weekends to be work-free quite seriously and it's good to just laze around and take a break from facing my laptop screen. This is an exception though, coz I was i…

What I've Been Watching | 02

Hi. I'm back. It's been a while. Life happened again, and as much as I wanted to write a blog post in this space, I lacked the motivation and energy to make one. I also kinda took a break from making podcast episodes. I thought I would be consistent on that at least, but who am I kidding. I…

Sometimes, it's okay to let it all out

[Start of transcript]I've always been good at hiding my feelings. Whenever I'm down, I don't let anyone see that I'm down. Especially now that I'm living with my family, I am always on my guard not to let my true feelings show. I've always been like this. I guess that's …

Life Lately: June and July Updates

Wooh, June was fun! First off, aside from it being Pride Month, it was also BTS Month and as a Baby ARMY, this is my first Festa (a celebration of the group's Debut Anniversary and they just turned 8 years this year!).
I know it's already the middle of July and I intended this to be a June W…

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…

Renee's Sunday Currently Vol. 12

Hi there! It's been a while since I last did a Sunday Currently entry so here I am. How's your Sunday? Mine is stress-free. I'm currently waiting for the Lotte Dutyfree Family Concert to start which will feature BTS. 😁 Anyway, here goes...

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…
