  • Day 30: A Collage

    by Misty Karen December 31, 2016

    This was how it was a few years ago; surrounded by music, playing and performing, or just having fun with it. I have missed this. And as a reminder to myself, I decided to make this collage, a reminder that music will always be a part of me, no matter how I deny it, no matter how much I say that I will never be good at it. And I know I’m wrong. I am just scared, always have been. Thus, the detours and pit stop in my life. It’s not that I don’t know what I want, it’s just that…

      1. I pray that I will be done with my undergraduate studies already. 2. I pray to be cleared out of all my financial obligations. 3. I pray to have the strength and will to take on whatever life throws at me.

I want the school year to end already and resign.…

  • I can’t find our family picture for 2016. I feel like I forgot to transfer it here on my laptop. But anyway, here is my little family: Top L-R: Saffi, Kuya Kyle, Kuya Tyronne; Bottom L-R: Jen, Mama, Seyla, Papa, Me.  

  • I don’t have songs in my iPhone right now to save space. I’ve just been dependent on Spotify for my music needs. I’ll be choosing a playlist and just put it on shuffle. Technicolor Beat – Oh Wonder Midnight Moon – Oh Wonder Without You – Oh Wonder White Nights – Oh Land Halcyon – The Paper Kites Bloom – The Paper Kites Pillow Talk – Wild Child Crazy Bird – Wild Child Fly – June Marieezy Matilda – Oskar Schuster   Day 25: Put your iPod on shuffle, first 10 songs was last modified: March 19th, 2019 by Misty…

  • (And again, here’s the sporadic burst of desire to continue this long-overdue challenge. Better than not finishing it at all, am I right?) There seem to be so many things that I’ve learned for the past months ever since I have left this challenge. But the one that resounds so much is, that I have learned not to take shit from anybody anymore.  I used to be a person who would just take anything from anyone, even if it’s already inconvenient, or uncomfortable for me.
