Rock My Soul 5-9

Hello readers, how are you? I really mean to ask you all about yourselves at the beginning of my posts because as a socially awkward person, I simultaneously feel like I don’t talk but talk too much about myself. But it’s especially important to connect in stressful and uncertain times. So I hope that you’re all doing well! Have I really not blogged in a … Continue reading Rock My Soul 5-9

Rock My Soul 1-4

I can’t speak for all Filipinos as anyone of an identity shouldn’t be expected (in general it’s a good idea, but we really should start using the noggins more than eyes about what is good for people).

Filipino Kids Books 2

Hey hey readers, have you been working out? I can’t believe I’m actually following up on a series. It’s true that I technically have an unboxing tag, but I don’t continuously subscribe to services, so it’s not that consistent. I also made a What I’m Reading series to have a collection of notes from other books I read, but those aren’t as easily read!  Well, … Continue reading Filipino Kids Books 2

Women, Race, & Class 1

Hey hey readers, what are you reading? I have to admit, I’m kind of tech snob. Not in a Apple superfan way, but that I was wary of e-readers, and I’ve no idea what I’d do with tablet or smart speaker. But Haymarket Books (which often offers great sales) was offering Remi Kanazi’s Before the Next Bomb Drops for free, so I decided to try … Continue reading Women, Race, & Class 1
