You make me smile.
And I mean, the giddy-Cheshire-cat kind of smile. Thank you for clicking that like button on my photo. You made my night (once more). Though it might not mean anything special to you, it means a whole lot to me. :3
A wise professor once told me, “The only way to shame someone’s immaturity is not to do something about it.” Plus, I realized I’m not a senseless being who wants to stoop down to a real senseless being. So if I get affected by senseless people, then I’ll be senseless myself. Prudence, dear, is a virtue. And in case you haven’t heard of what it means, it means...
You are smart, articulate and confident and oftentimes, you will rub off people...– Ma’am Fajutagana advising me 2 years ago. I love her. :)
Only brainless people attack a person based on physical traits. Only brainless people discriminate based on color. Only brainless people see ugliness in being brown or black. And that’s the best you can come up with? That’s the wisest thing you can say? Seriously? Your words betray you. Shows how stupid and senseless you people are. Get a life.
I’ve been reading and researching and studying this theory for 4 hours now. Sigmund Freud, Jacques Lacan, Silverman, and Kristeva are keeping me company tonight. It is interesting how this theory sees monsters in horror films as a woman who is abjected by society. An abject is something which is expelled or rejected. Through psychoanalytic feminism, I learned that we make the woman an...
You got it wrong
If you think the world revolves around you, dear, you got it wrong. No, not everything is about you. So don’t go thinking we’ve been planning on destructing whatever there is to destruct in your own little world revolving on yourself. Because we, my dear, have our lives to live outside of us. I, specifically, do not have the time to plan on stupid things such as destroying someone...

I tried using the Pola application. HAHAHA! Cutie and Dubai in Baguio. I hate these two but yeah.
'Cause I love my friends
After the Active Vista opening last Tuesday, we went to Taft to meet my high school friends and KT’s friends-since-kinder-2. Starbucks in front of Benilde with high school friends and Gel. Karaoke at Providence! Woopee! Kt and Kt’s friends, Ryan and Kon. Mauulit, mauulit. Forever and ever, babes. <3
Pwede bang, dahil ayaw kong maging organic intellectual who serves the ruling class of the capitalist system, eh maging bum na lang ako? On second thought, I could use counter-hegemony the way Lino Brocka did in his film Orapronobis. I think I should teach high school students and unconsciously put in their minds how evil the capitalist system is.
Active Vista Film Festival
Dakila launched its Film Festival on Human Rights last tuesday at the Shangrila Mall in EDSA. This festival focuses on human rights. It is in partnership with the Dutch embassy, Australian embassy, United Nations Development Programme, and Commission on Human Rights. The night was a success! Mark Gil and Mario Dumaual were there. ABS CBN covered the event. The Dutch ambassador. The...
And suddenly, every little thing concerns you: the flapping of the curtains, the clicking of the fan, the shortness of your breath, the thump of your pulse, the distorted reflection of your image in the brass bed. Is this what poetry is supposed to do to you?

On defining the term "Filipino"
I have noticed have a lot of definition on what a Filipino is, bordering on being biased and racist. And it sucks to know that even our own countrymen agree with these points of view. Ang akin lang, wala kang karapatan magsulat tungkol sa pagiging Pilipino kung wala ka namang sapat na kaalaman sa kasaysayan ng Pilipinas (na maraming kinalaman kung sino tayo ngayon) at kung ang gagamitin mong...

My almost-bearable poem
This semester, I am taking up a course in creative writing, taught by a very brilliant professor-slash-writer, Carlos Piocos III (Yes, all the quotes on sex which I post here come from him). He is a Palanca award winner for poetry. I am having a very hard time with this kind of writing. Sir Piocos’ comments on my writings are always, “too prosaic” and “use imagery.”...

My brother and I were talking on Yahoo! Messenger… Me: You on summer vacation? Him: Yup. Bin on eat. Me: What? Him: Eat is computer talk. Me: Which means? Him: Been on it. Me: Why do you say that? Him: It’s fun. You don’t have a scent of humor. Me: It’s weird. Him: Actually, you are weird. WHAT THE HELL?!
Don’t worry, if you haven’t experienced these, you will in 5-10...– Sir Piocos (on getting drunk and having sex)
Oh the pain
…of writing. As I’m typing this, I have been writing for almost 3 hours now. My back hurts, my brain is running out of words. I have always thought of writing to be hard (finding all the right words to string together and shit) but never as hard as this. Poetry writing can be so tiring and frustrating. It is both a physiological and mental torture, you know. My spinal chord is about...
