Letters To You, #5

I mostly already forgot about this incident since it happened, but it popped up in some recent conversations with one of my cousins and my best friend, and since I seem to get riled up whenever I recount this, I might as well share it here. I was trying to describe how young my current… Continue reading Letters To You, #5

Wingless

Keeping On Keepin’ On

Hello, world! What’s up? I, um, haven’t been here in a while, no? (Understatement of the year!) I seriously marvel at how internet content creators never run out of stuff to post about. Like, popular vloggers can upload well-edited videos, what, three times a week? Even more? And over here I can barely post anything… Continue reading Keeping On Keepin’ On

2016: June

June was a crowded crossing—think Shibuya or NY Times Square—where I found myself having to pause in the middle of, when my legs could no longer carry me forward. But there was no collision from the people rushing in all directions, as one would expect. I didn’t get knocked over. I didn’t suffocate. Because people,… Continue reading 2016: June

2016: April

The other side of waiting. All that … longing (years! months! days!) for a thing that’s over in a few hours, if even that. I’d like to say that it’s usually worth it. But it rarely ever is. Still, no matter the results, I’m glad I’m here at the other side. In fact, I kind… Continue reading 2016: April
