Lilith sat across me on one of the tables positioned next to the train’s window. A woman with long, dishwater blonde hair approached us and asked us if we were ready to give our orders. Lilith and I just wanted a cup of coffee. The woman disappeared from our sight and went to the kitchen to give our orders. Within a few minutes, our steaming hot coffee arrived. I put a sugar cube in it and began...

In my dream, the world was ending again and people were fighting. Blood was everywhere. It flooded the streets and kept oozing on walls. The sky was grim and dark, filled with storm clouds. Thunder roared in the sky and joined the sound of the ricocheting bullets and the smack of fists connecting with human skin and bone. Rain began to patter against the blood-streaked pavement and against my...

All the glitters are gone. She stands in front of the mirror, her hair tumbling down her shoulders in loose curls. Her eyes look back at her, reminding her of the wonderful evening, reminding her of the magical night, reminding her of memories created, slow dances swayed, compliments uttered and stories exchanged. The water dripping from the faucet brings her back to reality, to a world where...

“Hmmm…” President Knoxx began, looking at me with interest as he leaned back on his chair. “Tell me about your plan, Mr. Daniel Deveraux.” I grinned. “I need to make her fall in love with me.” President Knoxx raised his eyebrows, clearly surprised at what I was about to do. “You see, President, in case I won’t be able to take her down in...

No social networking for a day. That’s my Friday sacrifice. Since I forgot that I couldn’t eat meat today, I decided to sacrifice blogging for a day and engaging in social networking activities (which gave me more time to work with my planner!). Along with that, I decided to walk home instead of riding the jeepney. It’s some little sacrifice compared to what our Lord did for...

“Love is a choice.” An excerpt from Chapter 28 of my novel, “Steel”. Hope you enjoy it! Happy hearts day! “So, Jonathan, confession time. Was there any girl besides Lilith that you dreamed of being paired to?” I sucked in a deep breath. No, Lauren. Do not expect your name to be on that list. Do not assume that what happened between...

I can’t blog much today. I still have a lot of paperwork to finish, and it’s already 12:08 in the morning. I wake up at 5, so I’ll be expecting my sleeping time to be around 1. I feel so tired and drained. I don’t want to study anymore. I just want to sleep and take a rest.

Free at last. It may sound like a democratic cry, but it isn’t. Freedom comes in may forms, and to me, freedom comes in the joys of going out with one of your best friends right after class. Of course, my family doesn’t have to know. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not rebelling against them. In fact, I love them very much. It’s just that, I’m the type of person who...

So, I had no sleep at all last night, and look at me now: I feel like I can keep working and working and working. I don’t feel lazy at all. In fact, I feel as if I can work all day without complaining. Its as if I drank fifteen cans of Red Bull and a dozen Espresso shots. I also feel like I can go ahead and party and dance for as long as I like. I feel so “chill”, and...

Let’s get lost. Let’s get lost. Once in a while, we need to. We need to voyage into the labyrinth and allow ourselves to sulk in it, to memorize its twists and turns, to ponder on its complexity, to find our own way out. We need to face monsters and giants that can shatter your dreams and build them back. We need to travel deeper into the maze and find its heart, find the core...

Decisions. Decisions. Until now, I still haven’t figured out which college I want to go to. I’ve been accepted into all six colleges I’ve considered, and right now, my choices have been narrowed down to three, namely, UP, Ateneo or UA&P. I can say this will be one of the biggest choices of my life. I can’t wait to be in college. I can’t wait to start from...

It was another ordinary day at school. We had a lot to do, as usual. I fell asleep for the first time in my English class, since I was pretty bored with the topic. Actually, to be honest, almost all the topics for this quarter is boring. It poses no challenge and some of them aren’t even required in our field of study. I just don’t get the point why we have to waste our time studying...

Business without borders. The tempting idea of exporting and importing goods in partnership with fellow ASEAN countries lure us to the dream that once again, we will rise from our economic status and become one of Asia’s tigers. The idea of establishing free trade areas gives us a preview of the first world, and as we yearn to see more of it, we forget our country’s stature as a...
My new sounds:

Actually, we did nothing in school today. And when I say NOTHING, I mean NOTHING. Seriously. I don’t even know why they let us come to school if they’ll only make us take the CEM Diagnostic test (which I didn’t take seriously, btw). My mega mashup’s going pretty great. So far I’ve included six tracks minus the samplers which I will be editing in Audacity. I’m...

One of the last Tuesdays. Yeah, I know the picture looks funny. But srsly, I’ll be saying goodbye to school very soon. Senior Year has been a real great year for me. Although I was faced with loads of schoolwork and stress, I can say that it was a year of dreams, a year of hope, a year of fun, a year of friends, and most of all, a year of finding myself. I have often heard that it is...

So, I just woke up from my nap, and I haven’t even studied for tomorrow’s first period quiz Ugh. I feel so indolent today. I just want to rest and sleep all day. I don’t need statistics or computer codes to block my mind from calm and serene thoughts. Anyway, I found out I got into one more school again! I received a letter from UA&P regarding my acceptance, and...

I woke up today and thought everything was just a dream. But it wasn’t. It was real. I passed my dream school, and yesterday really happened. All my life I’ve been dreaming and working hard for that dream. I’ve been aiming for a good future, a published book or a work in the field of social media, and now, I’m starting to live that dream. I’m not just a dreamer...

I can’t believe how much could happen in a span of 24 hours. Living this day with different people and different incidents has caused me to believe that a lot can happen in a short period of time and that one day can totally spin your world around and change it. If there was a day that would turn my topsy turvy world upside down, it would be this day. I don’t know why. It’s just...

Today was a different day. I could tell it was different because today felt like one of those moments that I would remember forever. It’s Friday night, and instead of the usual alone time wherein I lurk around bookstores and coffee shops, I went out with a new set of friends, friends whom I’ve never experienced hanging out with before. We watched “Warm Bodies” starring...

I know this isn’t a good way to end the month, but I’ve got no time to blog tonight. Well, actually I do, as you are reading my latest entry at the moment, but I don’t really have ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD. If only there were 30 hours instead of 24. Anyway, I have to go right away. I promise to make it up on the next few days. Bye!!!

“I feel infinite.” The night was dark, and the wind was cold. I hum a tune as I keep walking, trying to maintain my happy disposition. It was the end of a long day, and I look forward to an extra hour of sleep after accomplishing my schoolworks. The shuttle, empty except for me and another passenger, lurches forward. I turn my head and face the vehicle’s window, feeling the...
Anonymous asked: is the upcat result coming out tomorrow for real??????!!!
helovesthatmuch asked: hey (: I saw your post about the ACET just right now while I was lurking around tumblr. Congrats! I'd also like to say that I, too, passed the ACET and will be taking up Creative Writing just like you. Sorry if you think I'm weird or anything haha but I just had this urge to send you this message (: I hope I'll be seeing you around Ateneo!

I don’t know what came to me that made me decide to blog about this, but, I guess what Oscar Wilde says is true. We are defined by the people around us, by the people who keep us company, by the people whom we idolize and aspire to be. We wear different skins when we encounter different people. We put on different masks to conceal our darkest secrets and to hide our deepest fears. Only by...

Other girls fantasize about boys. I rave over fictitious characters. Other girls spend long hours fixing their hair or applying makeup. I leave for school with my hair damp and with lip gloss as my only accessory. Other girls want to go to prom with dates. I strongly refuse going to my own prom with an escort. Other girls party and socialize on Friday nights. I opt to spend my time alone and...

I’m scared as hell. DO YOU SEE THOSE GREEN WORDS? They say VERY SOON. And how soon is that? Well, apparently, they’re OUT TOMORROW. I can’t take it anymore. I’m hyperventilating. They can’t come out tomorrow. Tomorrow is CARDS OUT. Do you hear me? Cards out? I know I haven’t been doing well in Physics, and I’m sure that my Econ grades are going to slip...

I discovered something new about myself today, and the way I discovered it is actually kind of funny. I have confessed my love and adoration for coffee in my past entries, tweets, and bios. People at school know me for bringing that familiar silver coffee container and call me a sleep-deprived caffeine-infested girl who’s pretty much nocturnal because of this bittersweet drink. Today, as...

Today was a complete adventure. First up, our club had our trip in Manila Ocean Park. Although I’ve been there for a good number of times, it’s my first try with my friends and schoolmates. We witnessed the beauty of sea creatures and shared so many hilarious and happy memories together. We were amazed by the dancing jellyfishes, the large oceanarium, and our childlike selves even...

Remember the entry wherein I decided to do something new that I haven’t tried before? Well, I’m currently practicing what I preach. For over a week now, I’ve been addicted to mixes and mashups. I don’t listen to any music except for those creative combinations that people find mind-blowing. I think they contain 100% SWAG. I really really really want to make a mega...

I have a confession to make… :( I forgot to post this yesterday. But before you could react and before I begin to blame myself AGAIN, there’s valid reason that explains it all. I went home last night with extreme exhaustion washing over me. Yeah, I know people get tired, and they still manage to carry on with their work. I’m USUALLY one of these people. However, last night was...

“I was here.” We fear to be forgotten. We fear the day when we turn into a heap of ashes with no one to remember us. We fear that time will come and nobody will take note of who we are, that no one will live to tell our story, and that our names will go as quickly as we had come. We fear oblivion, yet oblivion is inevitable. We all want to live a purpose-driven life. We search for...
