[REVIEW] “KEEP DANCING”

After two years of being partly off the grid, the aesthetically-pleasing music makers from Caffeine and Taurine are back with a stronger kick ㅡ thanks to their new release, and the new additions to the band: Anthony Abitona on bass, and Joshuel Bautista on the keyboard. The two, along with CAT pillars Brandon Garcia who is now on synths and vocals, Nath Pelareja on drums, and Daniel Ching on guitar and vocals have returned with a fresh track that marks their return to the local music scene.

The Five People You Meet (SUITS Version)

Cast-Season-5-suits-38613599-1920-1080

If in this world, you are like me and you see yourself as the Mike Ross in this Pearson-Specter world, then you should remember these five people you meet.

They will either make you or break you, so you better learn how to read people and understand their roles in your life.

You will encounter success, heartbreak, failure, promotion, happiness, and even hopelessness, which all serves a purpose in the long run – and so do these people.

These are the kinds of people who will hammer you into a worthwhile individual – but you still have the final say what you become: a masterpiece, or a failure.

Head Above Water

Nothing beats knowing you’re above water again, after a grueling tussle with the darkest of shadows.

Happy is too much of an understatement, but it’s a good place to start. Learning the definition of happiness takes time when you’ve been thrown into an indefinitely-dated slump. But for the love of everything good and true, I am glad I listened to the voice that told me I could get back up on my feet.

Right now, I am anchored on happiness with the help of a few things like chocolate and uplifting music, but I also attribute it to the little steps I’m taking to better myself, and finally at the fact that things are getting better. I am learning not to be anxious about tomorrow, because my system automatically thinks of the worst possible thing that could happen after a beautiful and perfectly memorable situation has occurred. I am unlearning this, and I’ll be glad when I’m free from it. Even now, I’m claiming it and looking forward to the freedom that peace brings.

I’m absolutely thankful for every single surprise that the Lord bestows upon me, just to keep me grounded on His promise of joy. Everything is coming together, and despite a rocky, displeasing, and depressing month that I had to go through, I believe this time around it’s going to get better and better. There are always good things ahead.

Dragons Precede the Sunrise

In the most honest way I can state this, I find that it is utterly selfish for the self to be seeking attention through its most potent poison: depression and self-degradation. The almost automatic addiction and acceptance of this is truly bewildering, discriminating no one at any given point in time. Why do we befriend this self-destructive entity when all it is purposed to do is gnaw at you from the inside, utterly untraceable until only before your demise?
