When a COVID nurse, gets a COVID.

When a COVID nurse, gets a COVID.

It was around March, when COVID-19 took the whole world by storm and impacted all of our lives; the stocks hit an all time low, the global economy crashed and since then, a new norm started in school, work and worship places. That same month, my workplace became the designated unit for the whole city. [...]

My new found love for succulents

My new found love for succulents

Since the pandemic started, like everyone else, it took a huge toll on my mental health. I found different activities to keep myself busy and to continue balance my work-life routines. I always like travelling around spring and summer but with travel restrictions, my spring and summer this year will probably all about adapting to [...]

LET ME DO THIS

LET ME DO THIS

  I woke up one day wanting a change. My eyes looking at a different direction, my mind is distracted and my heart is beating differently. I'm starting a different chapter in my life and I don't know what did I get myself into. I just need to live this life to the fullest, so [...]

Spring Days in Korea

Spring Days in Korea

A year ago, I had the best of my Spring days in Korea. If I knew then how hard for me to travel again this year; I probably would've stayed a little longer, sleep-deprived myself a little more, and stayed fully doing more of the things I want. April, 2019- We visited Korea the second [...]

My Graduation x Thanksgiving Party

I have dreamt many dreams that never came true. I wanted to be a broadcaster, a teacher, a librarian, a filmmaker, a cook, a blogger, a photographer and even a KPOP star. As I grow old and seasons passed me by; I saw my dreams vanished on me. But that didn't stop me from dreaming [...]

BAD BLOOD

BAD BLOOD

You were never my best friend, but you have become a part of my life that I never really wanted to let go. I still have the gifts you have given me; the pictures we have taken since grade school are still hanging on my wall. I would still laugh at the thought of the times [...]

“I’m home.”

“I’m home.”

I think of home, and I’d remember the moist warm rays emitted by the sun. As my sweat slowly pours from my hair, I waved at the man who would take me somewhere to meet the reason which made me come back. I reached for the handle as I sit, looking at how the place [...]

To 2016,

I've reached the deepest part of the sea Held to the point, I almost stumble and fall But in my weakest, I became the strongest For I have You who lifted me up and guided me in ways, I couldn't even imagine I've cried a river every time I fall down Questioned all my philosophies [...]

A LETTER FOR THE ANXIOUS ONE

A LETTER FOR THE ANXIOUS ONE

Three days ago, another academic year has started. It is a moment of learning and meeting new people, but it was a tough time for me as I will need to face my fear yet again. To everyone who struggles, cry it all out to the Lord. Talk to him and share every pain and fear [...]
