Identity Crisis

Astig ang Disney Channel. Nakakatuwa ang mga sitcoms nila gaya ng That’s So Raven, Lizzie McGuire (ayoko nga lang kay Hillary Duff, ugh!), My Wife and Kids, at Even Stevens. Sa lahat ng yan, Even Stevens ang paborito ko. Hindi siya farce tulad ng That’s So Raven at ng My Wife and Kids, at hindi siya kasing-arte ng Lizzie McGuire, pero it’s really down-to-earth funny. …

The Concrete Pilgrimage

Everyday, I go on a concrete pilg`rimage. It is an arduous journey which consists of several meticulous and archaic rituals. Usually, these rituals are ripe with purpose, direction and possibilities.

I hate you for making me regret things even if it all happened five years ago. I am stuck in a deep rut because of you. I …

Autopsy On A Spoiled Girlfriend

She would tell his boyfriend, “That’s what boyfriends are for.” Her boyfriend would nod in …

Delayed

Ngayong naiisip ko pa lang ang mga mangyayari, hindi ko na mapigilan ang sarili ko na maiyak. Isang taon na lang, at gagradweyt na’ko–dapat. Kaso lang mukhang hindi ako papayagan ng tadhana. Imposible nang humabol. At kasalanan ko lahat nang ito. Ni hindi ko nga inakalang madedelay akong grumadweyt. Nung freshie ako, masyado pang mataas ang mga pangarap ko. First sem pa lang, kumuha na …
