Listless

24 days into 2014 and it’s been good, for the most part. The only trouble I seem to be having is forgetting that there should be a 4 instead of a 3 in the last Y of DD/MM/YYYY. Started the … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Big bad bull

If I were born a boy, none of this would have happened. But the heavens intended for me to become a girl so how the hell am I going to deal with that without having to worry about the syntax … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Plans

are made only to be cancelled. Since all of the plans I had made for the 26th with high school and college friends were cancelled twice before we finally determined they wouldn’t push through, I just decided to go to the … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

The sorry story

Between the two of us, I guess it’s always you who concedes first, apologizes first. Serves you right, I used to think, for being the first to get infuriated, the first to feel unappreciated. I could bear not talking to … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

The last second chance

I am not trying to be some voracious reader here who quotes profound passages by famous authors every now and then; to tell you honestly, I haven’t had enough Murakami to completely comprehend him. I have read Dance Dance Dance … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Hell hath no fury like a girl scorned

Feeling particularly lonely on Thursday afternoon, I texted two of my friends and asked “Wala kayong balak magsayang ng oras ngayon?” but only one replied in the affirmative and we agreed to meet up over coffee before my shift starts … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Obi Wan Kenobi

You see, that was written more than a month ago, shortly before I realized that Obi (and yes, not Wan Kenobi, because that’s just an alias, something I’ve made up out of ‘office buddy’ = OB yeah you get it, … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Yesterday, I almost gave up writing about the things which had gone past considering all the emotional torture I have to go through while trying to unearth them from that unreliable storage that is my memory. I thought it’s exhausting … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Connect the dots

Of course I wanted to apologize to the kids of the student pub for the cancellation of the news writing educational discussion at almost the last minute. I didn’t mean it; actually I had decided to have it yesterday because … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Sentiments of the sleep-deprived

Running away doesn’t actually make sense; it’s not like I could go on setting aside my long overdue internship and thesis duties forever. I’ve already taken them for granted long enough to incur INC marks last semester and if I’d … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Moving out and other stories
