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. Although I have listened to an orchestra live before (earlier this year, the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra …

Я не умер.

It feels like it’s been ages since I posted anything here. First of all, I forgot to renew my domain on time, so this blog was inaccessible for weeks. I managed to retrieve it before the grace period ended. I actually planned to just replace lysianth.us with meowandsparkle.party, a domain that I already pre-registered for …

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 …

My YouTube Landscape

Do you like YouTube? I like YouTube. I spend a lot of my time on it, especially when I have nothing else to do. A few years ago, I wasn’t exactly into watching videos — believe it or not, I thought it was boring, and I didn’t understand what the appeal of YouTube was — …

Letter-Digesting

This post is long overdue! I love reading! I have loved it ever since. I remember in my grade school years, I pretty much read the entire library… hahaha! I was always at the library every break, every recess, and most especially every lunch time. The library was my favorite place in school, even in …

My First Concert Experience (and All the Stress I Went Through That Day)

I’m not a concert-goer. In fact, a concert may be the last place you’ll ever see me in. And parties, too! It just isn’t my thing. I’m too low-energy for high-energy events like these with a huge crowd, and it doesn’t really fit my personality. I’m always the first one to go home — that …
