December is such a busy and eventful month for me.  Every single year.  In just 20 days, I experienced a rollercoaster of emotions, most of which are very favorable.  The kind of feelings that you want over and over. Let’s… Read More ›

Zero to Nothing

I learned how to have very low expectations of everything and everyone.  I guess it’s working well.  It’s a better-working buffer. Anyway, my very latest attempt to step out of my comfort zone is still in the air.  I applied… Read More ›

My Pedring Adventure

Like many people in metropolitan Manila, I braved typhoon Pedring (Nesat) yesterday.  I’m happy to be safe and dry at home but the entire day was crazy! This is what I remembered from yesterday <time stamps are my closest approximations!>:… Read More ›

Regular awesome day

In order to stay true to my pledge of daily posts for one month for NaBloPoMo, I will share the randomness – and greatness – of this day. I have to admit that I’m not in my element this week…. Read More ›

Hence the name.

It is the second day of a new year! Happy to still be alive and well. My desire to blog has not fully returned.  I feel I have said too much in the past five years.  I am more on… Read More ›

O hai there! I was on my way home one warm Thursday night when I thought of blogging again. I think it’s partially inspired by what Julie Powell did.  I put it off for today but the interest fizzled.  I ended up… Read More ›

While I was out…

I feel like I was knocked out of this world for weeks.  Turned out it was only two agonizing days.  I did not have H1N1, contrary to rumors, and I will not even dignify it by a clarification.  All I… Read More ›
