a.k.a. one of the best Saturdays of my life so far. I've been anticipating this year's Manila International Book Fair ever since 2017 rolled in and I've been doing nothing but studying the past few weeks since it's CETs season, so I thought it would be nice to take a short break from all the stresses of being a senior, and go home.

Context: I attended Roch Lazarte's relaunch for her book Matty's Mixtape for Moving On last Saturday (More on this event in a later blog post). Days before the event, she asked if people would be willing to read their letters to the Kates of their lives during the relaunch and I was lucky enough to be given a slot. This was the letter to my Kate that I read during the relaunch.

006: On Writing Less

From writing around 5-7 posts per month to barely even writing any. Looking at my blog honestly feels so different now, compared to a few years back. I used to be so proud of all the content I put up and my blog was the only piece of work I was relatively proud of. Now.. Well, now, not so much.

007: College Entrance Tests, Careers, and I'm Not Sure What I'm Doing With My Life

     So, all 4 of the biggest universities that I wanted to get into just dropped their online application links this month and I completely lost my shit. I don't know what to do with my life and it's time to decide.

Steam Summer Sale: Game Recommendations

Ben Neale

Only a bit over a week left 'til the end of Steam summer sale, so I thought I'd whip up a blog post talking about some game recommendations because why not, right? I think a disclaimer is needed though, I ain't no gamer. I consider myself kind of like a casual.. uh.. player? But I do have a knack for finding [and completely obsessing over (so much for casual lol)] games with good art, pretty awesome plot, and cool freaking characters.

The Best June 2017 Pick-Me-Ups

      I don't know about you guys, but June was shit to me. School literally started a few days into June and I already had to say hi to my old friends stress and all nighters on the 2nd week. The first few weeks of school were already so full of requirements and lectures. I died around 17 times.

     It wasn't all that bad though, with the help of some amazing literature, music, and movies, I was able to pick myself up from the ground (literally) and haul ass to July. Here are the best pick-me-ups of June 2017.

Visiting the Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo

((Been working on this post for 2 months and today I've decided to hell with it, I'll just post whatever I've finished before I decide to completely rid the world of this post))

I've been spending a lot of time outside and no, it's not because I'm out partying or going on cool outdoor adventures. It's because I'm studying for college entrance tests in several review centers. I have classes every other day and I'm mostly doing homework in between, so I literally have no time for anything else.

Thankfully, last April 28th was a holiday! My mom, my sister, and I decided to go to the Pinto Museum in Antipolo.
