The Awakening

I was always made to believe that kindness is something that is inherent in people and that they are capable of showing this to others. This is a life teaching that I always brought with me throughout the years which is why I always like to believe that there is somehow a measure of kindness …

Earlier today I was asked to answer a series of questions which tackled on my mental health. The questions had to be answered on a piece of paper which would be looked at by a physician. When I handed over my answers, my physician was quite surprised with my answer on the first question. The …

A Precarious State

Hi. It’s me again after a few months of being inactive. Before anything else, allow me to tell you about what happened since my last blog post. The past three months have been tough. Because of the number of units I am taking for the semester, I had to let go of certain activities such …

If there’s one trait that I don’t normally show, then that would be my tendency to be extremely competitive. In most occasions, I try not to actively participate in games.
