So I've decided to screw the whole "100 days" thing. I clearly don't care enough about the pressure but I do feel a little bit more confident that I'll be motivated to write more. As a child, I visited the Philippines 3 times and I barely remember the first one. My upbringing didn't allow me … Continue reading Identity, Culture and other musings of a Filipina giya Guåhan
I'll keep today's post pretty short and sweet. I have a lot of thoughts I want to share tomorrow (the last day) so I'm going to save that. My biggest surprises for this challenge: 1. It was a lot easier on my hands than I realized. I didn't suffer too much pain while I was … Continue reading Flats Challenge 6: Biggest Surprise/Challenge
Before I go into this any further, some of you might be looking for a more in-depth explanation what a flat diaper is. A flat diaper is a single sheet of fabric, usually cut into a square. It's what people used to diaper before disposables were a thing and before modern cloth diapers began to … Continue reading Flats Challenge 2: What I’m Using
Because I'm realizing I'm not making much headway for 100 posts in one year - we're like halfway through the year and I've only gotten 10% in - , I've decided to talk about a not so favorite quality of mine. Now, I should probably do another 10 things I like about me in honor … Continue reading 12: l. o. l.
I’ve written this letter before. It was one of those days (out of many) you’d gone missing and I couldn’t find you. I was convinced you were never coming back. But as always, you did. Three days later and covered in mud. I always thought that when you left me it would be one of … Continue reading 10: Heya BooBoo
I've lived near the Micronesia Mall my entire life. This meant that I am always a less than two minute drive to the nearest grocery store. I've always liked shopping at night, since high school. Sometimes, I'd go with a friend or my sister to the store if I really wanted something in the middle … Continue reading 9: History
There's a hot topic going across the U.S. right now and it's representation of different ethnicities and cultures in film. Asian-Americans are now rising beyond the nerdy sidekick. African Americans are now taking control of the narrative by producing their own. The standards for included minorities is now higher; it is no longer acceptable when … Continue reading 34: Representation
So I'm updating this for the first time in a while and also for the first time in the New Year. I originally intended to post on Christmas Eve but just as I began to ramble about how my sisters were later for dinner, they showed up and we ate dinner. The days that followed … Continue reading 32: A New Philosophy on the New Year
I wrote for myself, today. Finally. It's bittersweet, however. It was out of frustration but it's certainly a start. I started writing out of frustration so I suppose it makes sense to pick it up out of frustration. I'm sure I've mentioned it somewhere on this blog already but most people don't quite believe it … Continue reading Day 22: I did it.
And for reasons I won't discuss, have not posted in a few days. I have some reasons - mostly exhaustion. But the main thing is that certain events got in the way of my writing and by the time I had a moment, I fell asleep. That being said, I'm typing away while I'm waiting … Continue reading Day 20: I’m Up Late
