Productivity Check

I tried to art my way through studying the back and lower extremities. I got the art part down; the anatomy, not so much. More notes! Earlier this month, I blogged about my feels over the intersection of Anatomy and Art. This is just more of the same. With more ink. When we get to internal organs next…

ASMPH MD/MBA: Week 1

Here’s to five years with these people I love, working for this country of mine.

draft: lessons in magic. and

Lessons in Magic, last night. “Here is what you must always remember,” she said, “all forms of magic require the entirety of the universe. You have to fill yourself up, from the dirt of your feet to the edges of your sight, with the lightness of the sky. Consume everything, weightless, until your fingertips reach…

A study break featuring 1D

Involves me reading up on this promising review on One Direction’s latest album, and just. It’s 3AM and I’m so proud of them. This: We’ve come to expect a few years of bombast from groups like this, then a soft slope down toward a break-up, followed by D-list name recognition punctuated with the occasional guest…

Like I was in the University of the Philippines kanina in Diliman, and I noticed that my Alma Mater is so iba na. It has changed talaga, like a total makeover! Gosh. And I’m not talking about the bagong structures ha or the monorail that was made paandar here and…

In No Regrets, women writers talk about what it was like to read literature’s “midcentury misogynists.”

This isn’t just about the books. When young women read the hypermasculine literary canon—what Emily Gould calls the “midcentury misogynists,” staffed with the likes of Roth, Mailer, and Miller—their discomfort is punctuated by the knowledge that their male peers are reading these books, identifying with them, and acting out their perspectives and narratives. These writers…

Life Update Post My investments in life are dangerously loosing value because I haven’t put much maintenance on them. What. Actually, hi, see tinatamad akong magsulat so, like, I’ll just word vomit.

Heyyy I’m so out of it

because apparently summer classes are not easy, and hopes of a stressless life are just, you know. Hopes. 

For the love of something

Life imitating me

in the sense that it is obviously a procrastinator as well. IT CRAMMED THE DEADLINE OF EVERY SINGLE REQUIREMENT/ TEST/ ACTIVITY/ PROJECT INTO THE SPACE OF A SCANT FEW DAYS. And then I am told to expect this of life every single year.  No. Just. Ugh.  Not to mention the fact that proving identities is…
