Time: The Tragedy of the Rest of Us

When I was a young girl, I used to stare at the round clock hung in the wall of our home and thought that its hands never got tired of ticking. At age six, I still did not know how to read the clock and it was only after a year when I entered elementary that I learned how to. Hence, at the early years of my childhood, the object that made all the others around me work with frantic toils was nothing but a round piece of plastic ornament I was fond of watching round and round. I would … Continue reading Time: The Tragedy of the Rest of Us

Life of an Introvert in a Nutshell

            At first sight, people most often feel taunted of approaching me. And they often feel more daunted when they hear me speak, or when they see me act the way I do. It’s not like I look like an ill-minded criminal for them to feel that way. It’s just that my aura is most of the time daunting for people who do not know me at all, and especially for people who know me very little.             I am an introvert. And if I am not misjudged for being just too shy, I am often misjudged for being too … Continue reading Life of an Introvert in a Nutshell

An Open Letter to Allen

I arrived home with the thought of wanting to write how my Saturday went through, but when I logged in on my WordPress account, I saw the new blog update a friend of mine from school has posted. And I figured this is a good time to tell him this: To Allen,             I know that the world is cruel and life really does suck. We are not anymore little kids to believe that the place where we live in is made up of merely happiness and rainbows. In fact, it is mostly made up of the things blatantly opposite of those … Continue reading An Open Letter to Allen


How are you supposed to start to talk about something which has haunted you down as far as you can remember? Insecurities. All of us have one. Or two. Or three. But I’m not going to spend the rest of the night counting literal numbers. Nonetheless, what you’re about to read is something way more interesting than counting numbers. Or otherwise. Being the resolute person that I am (or I claimed that I am) I never really paid attention to the voices that kept saying that others can do it better. Along the years of constant practicing, I have mastered … Continue reading Insecurities

From the Dusts You Came From… (to the dusts you will return)

Late night hours always make me think of the after and before. I don’t have any idea how many people who inhabited this world have thought of the thoughts I’ve always had in mind. These past few days, it seems like I’ve been seeing stuff on a spiritual level. And to tell honestly, I’m quite scared. Because it seemed that I was the only one who kept giving these weird ideas too much attention. This might creep you out but I imagine myself underneath the layers of earthly soils, silent and unmoving. I am exactly aware that someday this body which … Continue reading From the Dusts You Came From… (to the dusts you will return)

Almost Midnight Thoughts

In the middle of the day, amidst the racks of daily life, I still find the time to be alone in my thoughts. I have a very weird mind that always wonders. There are times when I’d suddenly stop doing what I do and just stare at people, stare at the stuff around me. And think. What on earth are we doing? As much as I want to view life or this world as a one way road that will eventually lead me somewhere if I work hard and do my best, I can’t help but think that maybe this world … Continue reading Almost Midnight Thoughts

A Repetitive History of Humankind

Serious conflicts like violence, terrorism, racism, war and many others are not at all new and uncommon for humanity. In the longest history of time, these types of problems have long inhabited the world we all live in along with the different societies that come and go. One, two, three… a thousand years and more? That’s how long our kind have lived this place. But despite the books and information the past have left us, with the hopes for the younger generation to not repeat the same story people in the past have done, it seems that humanity never really … Continue reading A Repetitive History of Humankind
