A (Love) Letter To 2021

I should have written this before 2021 ended but alas, things don't always go the way you planned them to and so even if this post is dated on the 31st of December, I am writing this on the 7th of January just because. Mmh ... 2021 ... Where do I start? 
2021, you felt like an extension of 2020.…

Life Lately | The Last Quarter of 2021

It's the last month of the year and it just struck me that 2021 is ending soon. When I try to look back to how my year went, it felt kinda nonexistent because really, I was just at home 95% of the time. The only time I ever got to go out was when I went to Iligan City last October to attend a c…

RED (Taylor's Version) 11.12 ❤️ Fuck the Patriarchy

It never would have been possible to go back & remake my previous work, uncovering lost art & forgotten gems along the way if you hadn’t emboldened me. Red is about to be mine again, but it has always been ours. Now we begin again. - Taylor Swift
RED has been my favorite Taylor Swift album n…

A Tribute to Friends, My Constants Through The Years

I am not so much a people person. If I can get away with it, I will choose to stay inside my room doing my business any time rather than going out and meeting anyone. When I was in grade school, I don't know how to approach people. I don't know how to initiate a conversation and so I didn&…

Souk Madinat Jumeirah | A Backlog

I was looking through my old travel blog posts and I realized I didn't write and share my visit to the Souk Madinat Jumeirah. I already had all the photos layout-ed and edited but I think I was too lazy to actually write the content, so here I am.
It's been 2 years since this visit so I don&…

A Dollop of Existential Dread

It's 10 in the morning and as I was sipping my first cup of coffee for the day, a ping sounded from my charging phone. A friend shared a Youtube video and as I didn't have plans to watch it yet, my curiosity won and I found myself clicking the video and listening to what both hosts were spe…

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…
