"Now you're in New York These streets will make you feel brand new Big lights will inspire you" Those are words that I used to hear from an Alicia Keys song that was popular when I was in grade school. A song so familiar, that I could sing when played on the radio. I never [...]

Massachusettes in the eyes of my lens

Massachusettes in the eyes of my lens

Once in a year, my family and I book our tickets and pack our bags to travel to new places and meet new people. While last year we went back to the Philippines, this time, we went to the USA. Yes! I haven't been to the States, but since we got our Canadian passports already, we [...]

The Imperfections Of An Unrequited Love

You were like a ray sunshine, and everything about you blinded me. I couldn't surmise how the happiness I once felt turned into memory. Then I was liberated from your gravity that I thought was heaven. Since that day, everything has changed - there was no butterfly nor sunshine And all I got was pain [...]

Five things I realized about “love” in my 20s

Love -  a four letter word that is most commonly used, with so many meanings and stories in it. While David Levithan defined love in one of his books as something not worth trying (based on how I understood it). I find love worth risking; it is worth all the time in the world that [...]

DAY 1 OF 365

DAY 1 OF 365

I cannot believe how much I've grown. By that, I meant to age. As I write this blog, I cannot believe I'm already 23 and teenage years have gone by me. Yes! I am this old. Growing old is something that I wanted to happen when I was 18; to take on responsibilities, have freedom and [...]

MIND & HEART AS ONE

Taking pictures is another way of saying you want to savour life at the moment because when time passed by on you, we're lucky if we are given a chance to go back and re-do it, but most of the time it does not happen. While scrapbooking is considered one of any granny's habits along [...]

Books batch 01

Due to my tight academic & work schedule, I am not able to make any reviews of the following books, however when given a chance I will try to write a book review about them.

“I can do all things…”

I would like to be a living testament how wonderful God's love is and how His love never fails. He has always been a listener, but these past few days it occurred to me how He puts things in order according to His plans and will for us. I've always been questioning the struggles I [...]

You Are Not Perfect

"pain" (CC BY-SA 2.0) by  bekassine...    Like any student, I am not perfect. There are days I would rather have fun than study, sleep than read, and daydream than to focus. I’ve always been struggling to prioritize my needs over wants; this was the worst mistake I did in my university life. Easy said than done, getting [...]

🍎 PROBLEM

I'm sure any students, bloggers, movie lovers would understand the struggle in not having any laptop to work on. Other than my phone, my laptop is literally my everything, especially I'm a student who does not take notes and depends highly on applications like Notability in note taking. I'll have to edit the slides on [...]
