When I was a kid, my favorite part of the day was when I was alone. 
From a distance, I would watch other kids play. While they were busy running, I would grab my textbook, read it, and answer all the exercises. While others played “bahay-bahayan”, I busied myself wondering how nature works.  I even used to study how my father performs his duties at work.

Anyways, I liked to play ‘jackstone’ and the likes. I did master those games. However, only few would take me in for a game.

This was my childhood. Oops, did I even have one?

Forward way back

Forward Publications Editorial Board and Staff (2010-2011)

This is about us and those times. 
This is for the times when we used to stay late in the school and go home together.
This is for the jeepney moments when we shared random jokes and bitterness.
This is for all the outings and conceptualization.
This is for making my entire college years an “abnormal” one.
This is for  all the food, tears, and laughter that we shared in our tiny office.
This is for all the ideals that we shared.
This is for all things that made us a family.

Why curfew, why?


I recalled what I’ve done.

Why now?

I really don’t think that I have done something awful, lately.

Who gave you the idea?

I freaked out as I tried to explain myself. I want to explore the world. Learn through my first hand experience and not through books and motion pictures.  I don’t believe I’ve learned enough. No. I don’t want to be stuck in here. God, no! I am trying to live my life here. Just, no!

But you know what?

I do understand you. We just don’t share same opinion. So, no!

How about a compromise? Huh?
