dang, april’s almost over!

Oh hey, I'm back. ^_^ I have no excuse as to why I haven't posted in about a month. Truth be told, it's just one distraction after another. But they are good distractions for the most part, like my birthday (holy shit I'm 30!) and a three-night Boracay trip before that beach temporarily closes. Anyhoo, … Continue reading dang, april’s almost over!

life lately: stress, my mom, and her enlarged heart

This is my most personal post to date and it is not good news, but I feel like I need to talk about it. Two days ago, my mom was diagnosed with an enlarged heart caused by hypertension and stress.

Yes, they died. No, knowing their fate didn't make it easy. THE STORY.

hooray, I finally learned how to track my expenses!

I'm definitely not the type who religiously tracks expenses. I don't hate it, but I see it as a laborious process, and my lazy ass self just doesn't have that kind of energy to add more things to my plate -- which is already occupied by sleeping and mindlessly scrolling through Twitter. But then the … Continue reading hooray, I finally learned how to track my expenses!

blog tag: playing the Three Things game.

First of all, thank you, Victoria (Biktorya? Bktryaaa? LOL) for the tag. ^_^ I remember answering stuff like this on Tumblr, from the most generic (favorite food, favorite color, favorite underwear, etc.) to the most R-rated outrageous. But I'm kinda happy being able to put a little bit of myself out there each time I … Continue reading blog tag: playing the Three Things game.
