I’ve been wanting to post a Sunday Currently and here I am! Hahaha!

13 Reasons Why. I already watched the series but I just want to read the book. This is so not me because I prefer reading before watching. The show just have such an impact on me, I need to read it too.

Fast Transitions of Stills

Pausing for a while, away from the volume of the audio and the fast transitions of stills.

I have yet to decide on what plan to apply, how to arrange designs uniformly for a more pleasing aesthetic, and to come up with strategies to let my presence be heard (or for aptness, seen).

But life lately had been a blur. I am the worst whenever I am anxious. I am still trying to convince myself that maybe I was not depressed before, maybe it was an anxiety disorder. But in truth, I don’t think we will ever know.

A Girl’s Point (And Shoot)

I have always been fascinated with music photography. It started in 2010, albeit with non-existential gears, when I suddenly was into OPM bands. I was still a noob in the industry then, having only my friend’s cameras to play with. I remember hating how low the aperture and ISO their cameras had back then. (I’m just glad the I have a 50mm lens to use now.) Last year, I got to cover my first ever concert in La Salle.

I wrote this a few years back in the middle of my eagerness to do just that. I interviewd Niña Sandejas, who’s one of my favorite music photographers (and a woman at that), to know more about the interesting industry she belongs in. Below is the copy of the article:

Although far from the more popular studio photography and the modern “selfies” and “phoneography,” music photography had set a different record for the still art. Niña Sandejas, one of the growing numbers of female music photographers in the country, takes us to what is up and about, and how this camerawork shoots.

Dear Future Boyfriend: Dependent

One Friday morning, I suddenly felt the urge to write something like this again. It was already eight in the morning and I haven’t slept.

I did not intend to post this; but last night, I had a dream that felt so real. And it involved me having a boyfriend. So that triggered it.

Maybe make this a regular series, what do you think?

Dear Future Boyfriend,

I’m writing to you to let you know that I think, right now, God isn’t giving me you because I don’t deserve you. Not yet.

Senti Sabado: Pait

One of my 2016 goals was to write more Tagalog entries. Although this certain composition was written in early 2013 (or December 2012, I forget), it was written in Tagalog for our Retorika class in college. We were asked to write about different given topic each week, and this was under the category damdamin (feelings).

It’s about high school and what comes after it; tried writing it the most dramatic way albeit short and really nonsensical for some people. But still, enjoy! 🙂
