17 Lessons from 2017

I had been very busy with 2017 because of reasons. But being busy is not an excuse for some lessons life throws at you (like that underarm commercial). 2017 has been a wild ride, some say it was a combination of the best and worst year so far. Me, I'm just surprised I still have… Continue reading 17 Lessons from 2017


Merry Christmas, F.

My site has been inactive this year. I'm afraid if I try to write another article, I'll start talking about you again. I've decided to go ahead, but this time, I'll pour it all out.

Day 1: A New Phobia

I can't remember when and how I developed my fear of dead people. For a solid horror junkie, I can't stand to be in one room with a corpse. And you know that. Hope was the only thing I was holding on to when I received the message. Maybe they were mistaken. Maybe its a… Continue reading Day 1: A New Phobia

2015: I’m Glad It Is Over

Every year is like a new chapter of a book - your life. Sometimes it can be personified as one of your friends, the reliable one or your fr-enemy, it's up to you. For me, it's that one person who made you question your friendship. This was a bad year. How bad? Really really bad.… Continue reading 2015: I’m Glad It Is Over
