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…

April 2018 Articles

Time flies so fast! Just a backstory, I started collating articles on April first and now here we are, on the last day! Is this intro something worth reading? No? I thought so! A Guide to Twitter Hashtags for Book Bloggers (WordPress) I have just been using #amreading (or #amwriting) every time I tweet about books….

MARCH 2018 Articles

I totally messed up my February 2018 Articles I know you can’t even qualify that as a collection.

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.

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. I forgot to take my vitamins, drink some water and even recognize the place I was in. Yes, ladies and gentlemen. After receiving a couple of rejection letters from the…

APRIL Articles

That time flies so fast is a cliche you don’t need to hear from me but that’s the truth. To be fair, I have to admit that this month, I managed to finish ONE PIECE Manga and two psychology books. It’s time for a new batch of articles! Feel free to click on the article…

MARCH Articles

I’ve been wanting to do this project for a long time. My Goodreads READ-shelf shows I’ve been too into Japanese comic books recently (so far 58 books out of 60 are comic books lol) so I thought reading articles in my spare time will even things out. How am I planning to execute this?  I had considered…
