On Beginner Pens

“What’s a good pen that a beginner can buy?” is probably something that I always get asked every week, and it makes me happy every time I get a message like that—for it means that people are curious, and people are trying. That means more potential pen geeks, so I always count that as a…

Hi, hello, hinga!

Helloooooooo—buhay pa ‘ko! (Not that anyone cares, haha!) Work kind of took over the past few weeks, which is good, all things considered, diba? The thing about taking breaks for me is that it always seamlessly happens and my lezzzgow lezzzdodizzz nature always, always succumbs to the joys of having space… for air. I originally…

I Took My Mondays Back

Seven (??!) weeks into the community quarantine, I put my foot down and told myself: take your Mondays back. Context: I have work on most weekends, and I’ve come to enjoy it. I “slow down” on Monday mornings. It’s a bit comforting to think that I’m not one with the rest of the world who’s…

Let’s be pen pals!

”Pen pals” reveals my age, no? Heh. So I have this “project” in mind, which I kinda need a bit of help with: I’ll basically send “notes” to “friends”.
