November 4, 2003. I walk into my fourth grade classroom and the first thing I notice is a big office desk placed behind all the other standard sized desks. My homeroom teacher isn't in class yet. Everyone is talking abut how there must be a new student coming to class. I got excited. I, myself, … Continue reading Go Best Friend, That’s My Best Friend!!
My entire life, I had this idea in my head that after getting a degree and making my parents proud, life would just be uphill from there on out. It's been about four months after walking the stage, and I've been feeling pretty confused. However, I've been reflecting a lot and I wanted to write … Continue reading Fighting Post-Grad Blues | 11:47 PM Update
For as long as I can remember, my peer group has always consisted of mostly Filipinos. Growing up, and even sometimes now, the one thing that everyone seemed to always point out was our contrasting skin colors. A lot of my friends had lighter skin, and I always heard remarks such as "You're so dark!" … Continue reading The Skin I’m In
I feel like there is a never ending list of things I need to do at any given time, but my mind always feels so cluttered and I get distracted easily, and my mental to-do list just keeps getting longer and longer. After graduation, I remember feeling so liberated because I could finally "do me" for … Continue reading Here’s the thing… | Life Update (ish)

I don't believe in coincidences. To me, coincidences are meaningful signs from the universe. Just ask my boyfriend. I can't even count how many times something has happened to us (whether we send each other the same meme at the same time, or we bring up something that the other was just thinking about) that … Continue reading Shoutouts to the universe, I see you!
Hey everyone! My boyfriend and I have been wanting to do the boyfriend tag and the spicy noodle challenge for quite some time now, so we figured why not just combine the two? I had a lot of fun filming this, minus the fact that my mouth was truuuly on fire. I also thought this … Continue reading 🔥🔥🔥 Spicy Noodle Boyfriend Tag 🔥🔥🔥
Happy new year everyone! Wow. Can you believe it? We made it through another rotation around the sun. It couldn't have come soon enough, if you ask me. I look back at the year and it made me realize just how fast it has passed, and it makes me think about everything that I have … Continue reading 2017 In Review – My 1SE
Originally, I didn't know if this would be appropriate to post on here. But I wanted to briefly talk about it because I was shocked at how much this situation impacted me, and as someone who wants to pursue a career in social/mental health services, I feel as if I have an obligation to talk … Continue reading RIP Jonghyun
This trip was hands down the highlight of my summer. This was my first time in Mexico, and it was a great first experience. Everyone was so friendly, the food was amazing and authentic, the weather was beautiful, we were near the beach and Puerto Vallarta (and the surrounding area) itself was so beautiful. Our resort … Continue reading ALittleBrittofSummer: Mexico 2017!!
Today is my last official day of summer. I remember my last day of school last year, thinking to myself how long a four month summer seemed. But it flew by in a flash and now it's over. Normally, school is something that has just always been there. Going back to school each year has … Continue reading Goodbye Summer ’17 – 9:49PM Update
