September 2019 Articles

Let’s admit it. There are those months you think you’ll be busy only to find out that it can get busier. That’s not comforting for fresh graduates who are looking for jobs out there, I know. Eventually, they’ll face the harsh reality that ideal workplaces will remain a figment of their imagination–unless they do something…

May 2019 Articles

Amassing a number of adjectives synonymous to tiring would be an exaggeration for what this month was for me but it truly was exhausting. Two big reasons: Avengers, The Big Bang Theory, and Game of Thrones have just ended and I suffered from a long and literally draining diarrhea. The 1968 Sci-Fi that Spookily Predicted…

April 2019 Articles

I tried catching up on my reading and writing this month– my smartphone games were getting in the way, not to mention an old flame in the form of a Korean TV series. I seem to be fixated on a number of things lately, I wonder if it’s my age. What Happens inside a Black…

January 2019 Articles

Thirty days ago, we were just celebrating New Year and now it’s not even new anymore, unless you’re like me who thinks that tomorrow is another year, full cycle and celebrates it nonetheless, minus the extravagant dinner and fireworks. What it’s like to live in a well-governed country (BBC) There are some policies I don’t…

MAY 2018 Articles

Have you ever read your old articles and remembered how exactly you wrote them? Do they evoke happy or sad memories? Same time last year, I was in a different environment. As I am writing this in an office full of busy people, their work stations separated by low green dividers, I can’t help but…

MARCH 2018 Articles

A number of things happened in February — changing careers, attending and speaking in seminars, requirements etc. — but rest assured that I am as enthusiastic about my monthly dishing of articles as I was when I…

NOVEMBER Articles

Oikawa: The year is almost over. Iwaizumi: Don’t forget December! There is something about November that makes one feel that time flies faster than usual. Have you noticed that I feature different anime characters every month? Oikawa Tooru gets a good seat in my heart for his “worthless pride” and I think he is going…

August Articles

Still by far the best confession in anime lol (gif is not mine btw). I have just finished Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (鋼の錬金術師, はがねのれんきんじゅつし) and arrived at a conclusion that Japanese animation is the best way to get over dramas. This month, I have a couple of articles I highly enjoyed reading |discussing with a couple…

Thought Catalog byline: Prex Ybasco

It has been so long since I felt exhilarated, that was last week, when I got my article posted in Medium. Today was rather different.
