Call It

Note: Started writing this February 2020, finished it September 2020 because I didn’t know where I was going with it. I guess I just kinda went with it. Even though I’ve grown up with many languages and several cultures, I’ve always seem to run out of words. As a little one, I thought I was […]

The Should’ve-s

As June rolled around, I couldn’t help but feel like I was missing something. My calendar reminded me that I was supposed to be in Hungary by the second week of June, starting on a yearlong journey. I don’t like whiteout, I usually just cross things out. But these scribbles on my agenda were too […]

Quarantine

As I sat across Danny oppa during my farewell-brunch, reflecting on this year of postponed plans, I told him I felt like I didn’t cope and respond well to this whole situation. He said I did all I could. Though I wasn’t convinced, I was comforted — it was good enough. It felt like a […]

19 – 20 may 2020

*Following is a journal entry. I’m not trying to explain anything to anyone. It’s mostly raw, unfiltered reflections. Please do read my vulnerability. Since Monday, every class has been about relationships and emotional baggage We’ve been taking care of our inner child, and mending the gaps between the holes in our lives. There wasn’t much […]

drawing

Snap.⁣⁣Life drawing found me by accident in uni. It was a very selective class and by some supernatural grace, I won the lottery. I legit thought it was a class for drawing fruit baskets or something. Excited to receive some drawing tips, with my newly bought charcoal and pieces of gargantuan sketching papers, I stepped […]

Postponed

I swear if I hear the word “postponed” one more time, I will smash something.Because of current situations, the Missions Department has decided to postpone all travels indefinitely. In the last update I wrote:So 2020, my year of privilege looks like a few plane rides, an abundance of ask-and-you-shall-be-given, and a stunned repetition of “wow, […]

Privilege

JANUARY 2020 Hello my dearests, I don’t know what your sky looks like on your little area of the globe but mine has been gorgeously cerulean over an amber sun in the morning and mysteriously dark at night with starlight gleaming down (stars in Taipei City?!). Let’s just say my 2020 has been off to […]

crawling out of an unofficial hiatus

DECEMBER 2019 My dearests, I promised myself I’ll never write another massive six-months update, but here I go. I’ve still yet to become a manager over time. When I came back from my month-and-a-half missions stay in Europe, I really thought I’d write more reflections. Some call it distractions, I call it complacency, others call […]

#HNGRY2019 Final Thoughts

I just couldn’t find the nerves to write up a final report. This was a bit of a self-questionnaire I wrote up for the blog for missions department so I could avoid all the feels of actually writing. 1. Why did you decide to sign up for a month long mission trip in Hungary? I’ve […]

#HNGRY2019 Update 7.0

Hello from the land of heat, typhoons, and earthquakes, I’m just thankful that I have been sleeping without waking up every night since I came home. But waking up is really difficult, 8am here is like 3am there. I’m being very patient with myself as I muster of the brain power for writing a long essay kind […]
