Trickle

The essence of life as I know it: you work hard, you get what you deserve. All that is true, that is, until you realize that sometimes you just don’t get what you deserve no matter how hard you work. When that clear truth is hitting you straight in the face, pounding at the brain…

Money makes the world go down

We are often told of the infamous quotation, “money makes the world go round“, and we often see the powerful ways in real life or in media of how money can alter situations/people/businesses/lives, etc. But does it truly power the world? Do humans really have such little respect for themselves in the way that they…

Week 2 of horrible sleeping schedules

I thought I had finally achieved a “healthy” sleeping schedule when I would wake up every morning at 9 all by myself, but little did I know that my old habits would soon catch up with me. I started sleeping more at 2 am and this resulted in me waking up half way throughout the…

Week 1 Foodie Adventures

The last post was longer than I thought so I had to make another one dedicated to not only the food there but also other adventures during week 1. One thing to note about Melbourne is that pretty much everything’s expensive and coffee’s kind of a big thing there.

All aboard the 23 hour flight

This begins the first to many of my blog posts about my time here in Australia! But before that, let me mention how late this blog post is due to my laziness, lack of time, lack of internet, but mostly laziness. Anyways, here goes!

My girl Tay Tay gave me an epiphany

Today I went to Taylor Swift’s concert featuring Ed Sheeran and some other bunch of artists, but those two were the main important ones. I had an itching urge to write this blog post after the concert and you may have guessed it, the concert gave me an epiphany or just plain realization. I went…

Ode to MTL

This is my first ever post written on my tiny iPhone using the WordPress app. I really don’t know how people can blog using their phone. The most I’ve ever written using a phone was when I had to take notes for a class using just my iPhone and my handy-dandy Evernote app. It was…

Onward to the distant land

So as many of you may already know, I am going off to Australia for a semester exchange starting July. My body is trembling with excitement and fear and I cannot wait to settle these butterflies once I’m in the new land. I will mostly be busy with school but at the same time, I’ll…

Never out of bitterness

I told myself it was time to let go. To let go of the uncertainty, the expectations that were never going to happen, and the self-doubt. There might be many different ways of looking at this, but I’m making sure I’m making it clear which way this should be looked at. I didn’t do it…

What I’m worried about

So during exam season I read somewhere (probably thought catalog) that if you were to write down all of your worries/troubles before an exam, it will make you feel a whole lot better. BS. Writing down your worries just makes you worry more because now you actually have a set of tangible worries written down…

How people living alone think (aka me)

Living alone can be frightening to many people but to me, it’s a wonderful experience. It’s a subtle way of learning how to deal with problems on your own as well as a getaway from people and the hectic world at least once a day. I consider myself brave for choosing to live on my…

I didn’t want to, but I guess we should.

First off, the timing could not be any more horrible. Being stuck in the middle of exam season with still more than half of my finals to go, specifically 80%, is nothing short of a perfect timing, right?
