Addictions

I normally consider myself as someone who isn’t careless with money. I’m not addicted to shopping, and I rarely buy new clothes and accessories. I spend my money mostly on food and drinks, and the occasional web stuff. Recently, however, there is this one hobby that I have adopted that I have spent so much …

My God Delusion

For me, one of the stories that I want to hear from people the most would be how they became non-believers (or non-theists), from being born or raised in religious families. I would be interested to know how other people “grew out” of their religious beliefs. I have been watching random stand-up comedians on YouTube …

Living Situations

From when I was a wee baby up until I finished high school, I lived with my parents in the same house. We never transferred, and we’re lucky that we never had to. When I decided, for some reason, that I attend a university very far away from home, I had to live away from …

Another Concert

I’ve become quite the event-goer (just kidding), and I attended another concert earlier this month — to be more specific, on the first of September exactly: MPO OPUS 20: Trailblazing Music Excellence, the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra’s 20th anniversary concert.

One thing that I have always found challenging is learning how to be vulnerable with others. I know how to be vulnerable. I think I am a vulnerable person. I have plenty of insecurities, and I am not the bravest person in the world. I have enough honesty in me to admit all these things, …

Paper Carvings Self-Review #1

This post will be something of a self-review of this blog from my first post up to the one before this. When I first resurrected this blog, I had a clear idea of what kind of blog it will be, what kind of posts I’ll be posting. Like I have said before, I didn’t want …

The Insincere Fan

Point blank, let me say: I am a fan. I am a fan of many things. Recently, I saw an interesting tweet storm by a fan of a person I am also a fan of, and hoo boy, do I have a lot of opinions about that thread of tweets. Basically, she, Poster, was saying …
