Return

The past few weeks have become quite hectic, which means that all of my plans were overthrown. I have constantly found myself in a race against time, skipping meals, being up late at night, trying to figure out how to finish my school work earlier or in time. But, hilariously, most of my struggles were in vain. Why? Well… Continue reading “Return”

Still On Time

A week or so ago, my sister challenged me to participate in a writing competition which took place on Wattpad. At first, I turned her down, since I knew that I would not have enough time to write a new story that would fit the requirements of the organizers, but after a few more days, as my schedule cleared up a little bit, I admitted defeat. I accepted her challenge to compete against each other and see who scores higher.

A couple of days before the contest’s deadline, I got an idea for the story. At that time, I was on my way to college. A few moments later, I was on the phone with my sister.

“I already have a few pages written~!” She teased me. “Did you start writing yet?”

But let’s begin with the beginning!

A couple of weeks ago or so, while in the Shakespeare Adaptation and Translation class, the professor came up with the idea of us all going to see a representation of one of Shakespeare’s plays, which, she further explained, would give us the opportunity to test our knowledge on the subject. “And then, maybe we’ll go out for a drink!” she added.

Dear Roses

What can speak more about love than a rich bouquet of red lovely roses? Sweet scents that enchant our senses, making our hearts race, and our minds play on dear memories.

At the beginning of this year, I bought myself a new sketchbook, and eager to try it out, I grabbed my colored pencils and traced the lines to a sweet painful memory. I’m kidding. What I actually had in mind when I began sketching was one of my stories, Chidori, a Cell Phone Novel I wrote a couple of years ago (and which is now being edited, reason why I will not provide a link just yet), which focuses on a Japanese young adult who finds himself fall in love in the most stunning circumstances.
