Here’s another “About Me” story. I’m so fascinated to introduce myself twice here on my favourite platform. Introducing myself in high school was a nightmare. On the first day of class for four subjects in high school, I had to stand up in front of our class and introduce myself…

I recently got heartbroken with someone I was talking to. It happened pretty quickly. The one thing that broke me was the fact that he just wanted to have a friend with benefits relationship with me. …

I was thirteen years old when I gave my life to Jesus. I fell in love with the words of God, and I felt His presence when I encountered Him.

I have read the Bible from front to back twice. I used to read the Bible every day and did…

In 2018, I deleted my Snapchat, and it is for good. I used Snapchat throughout my high school life, and I’s post everything on Snapchat every day. It was hard for me to leave Snapchat because of the Snapchat filters that could make me prettier. …

NOTE: I can only speak for myself, and my experiences

I went for three months of therapy (November 2020-January 2021) while working part-time and studying full time. One of the things that my therapist said to me was that depression is useless. Which I guess was accurate.

I write pretty much every day, but sometimes I decided not to publish my written articles. I wrote over a hundred articles in five months of writing on my favourite writing platform, and I reread some of my pieces. It makes me cringe reading some of my published stories. …

As I recall my younger years in the Philippines, there are some Filipino sayings that I’ve…
