When I was still a kid, whenever the month of March approaches, I can’t help but wish for the days to pass me by faster than the usual. In the Philippines, March is the last month of the school year, and the impending end of it only means one thing: summer.

But for some, the timing is a little bit suspicious as her return to the streaming service is the same day as Witness’ release, Katy Perry’s latest effort.

Writing: Year One

Time flies so fast.

Isang taon na pala ang lumipas simula nung magsimula akong magsulat regarding my life experiences. Isang taon na din pala simula nung i-share ko sa Cyber World ang mga hinaing ko patungkol sa pag – ibig. In hindsight, I think writing about the emotions I felt last year is like going to therapy.
