What I see

In the cold winds of the night Chill creeping in about to linger My lids unfold, and I see naught And then colors begin to rise, pictures come into life And the edges of my lips, from grimace to a smile, Shifted I see more I see life I see love I see all the…

Mini haul + Try-On

WARNING: This is a low-budget haul. Manage your expectations. If you’ve been around for quite a while, you probably know by now how much I love thrift shopping or Ukay-ukay as what we call it here in the Philippines. For the past months I have seen one too many viral posts in Facebook of people showing some…

Sweet Delights

  You repeatedly uttered the words, I listened willingly I love you, in the morning I love you, in the evening I love you, anytime in between My love, my heart was in the sky My smile so wide, I cannot hide     Oh darling, I am aware I am no Queen But surely…

My TOTNK

The One That Never Knew The thing is, there was never really an us. There was never really an instance that you said that you liked me and I said that I liked you and I hate myself for denying myself the simple pleasure of admitting the truth—that I like you, and I hate myself…

The Little Things

It’s unusual for me to feel this way, honestly but I cannot deny the fact that the events of today have made my heart feel delightfully awesome. I have always laughed at jokes or any funny stuff but this inexplicable feeling of knowing that we have made two souls happy today is more than I…

I have talked about how thrift shopping had given me this certain feeling of satisfaction after buying clothes that are of good quality but with a very…

A Promdi’s Moving-out Story

4. Write about the day you left home The main reason why I needed to move out was because I had to study college in a university approximately three hours away from home (I live in the province and the school I’m going to was located in the city). Although there’s a school nearby where I…

Update: I decided to come.

After thinking it through, I eventually decided to come. I realized that there’s no use in making it a big deal, after all, we don’t always see each other. So after I posted my thoughts earlier, I just decided it would be better to come and see them after how many months. I thought it’s…

Here’s what my high school friends will probably never understand.

An introvert’s take on going out unplanned. Oftentimes, we don’t always get to go in the same university with our closest friends in high school when we enter college and because college is undeniably exhausting, our friendship with them gets put in the line. With unmatched class schedules getting in the way, hanging out with them becomes…

We don’t always need fixing. Sometimes, what we need is acceptance from the people important to us. The feeling that comes along with the knowledge that we are accepted despite our brokenness is almost always more than enough than being fixed because being fixed does not guarantee we’ll never break again.
