My Life

To be honest, I never thought I’d apply for a medical school/college program.

To be honest, it was a dream just to be accepted for the interview round.

To be honest, I never practiced for the interviews seriously.

Ultimate Fear

What scares me? Ha…

If we’re talking normal, everyday things, then social situations, eyedrops, etc. If we’re digging deeper, then my future. But if we’re saying my ultimate fear…

It’s forgetting.

Forgetting myself. My memories. My life. My everything.

And forgetting my stories. My characters.

The personalities, histories, dramas, worlds, and people I created.

I fear.

And that is why I write.

Happy New Year!

Wow, I haven’t posted in a while (no surprise there), but I just had to say, “Happy New Year!” 🎆🎉🎉🎉🎊🎉🎉🎉🎆

As for resolutions… well, I’ve never been good at keeping those except maybe last year’s to be healthier. I do hope that I post more. Maybe keep a daily journal and be a little more creative now that I’m being swallowed up by logic, words, education, and the usual I’m-not-actually-an-adult-but-I’m-not-under-18-anymore life.

I hope everyone has a great new year! Good luck with keeping your resolutions! 😄

So, I haven’t been posting in a long time, and I’m sorry. 😣 I’ve just had so much to do for a few weeks now. Like learning to drive in a new city, learning to live by myself, learning to take care of a living being (my dog ❤️️), learning to take care of a plant (and I haven’t been doing well on that one), learning to time manage, and learning to just… adult. And go to college with good grades to maintain my scholarship (yeah, I need help in this one).

But, here it is! I posted something! Continue reading

64

No words can express how much the number 64 means to me.

It was 2007. I was eight years old, and my cousin was in middle school. The school bus dropped her off at my house since the apartment she lived in was too far away. She often did her homework at my house, and we would play afterwards until her mom came from work to pick her up.

Our grandfather from the Philippines was visiting us in America.

I remember my cousin struggling over her math homework in the living room, bright sunlight flooding the room.

“What’s 8 times 8?” she asked, struggling because she could not remember the answer.

“Uh,” was all I could say before I rushed away in search of a calculator.
