    The covid situation is still unfolding, but it's no longer at home. I am relatively fine and doing well, aside from some minor things. But there are others to take care of as well. I wish more words could be spared, but that will have to wait until this is all over. Until then, the blog gets little more than a placeholder. The world can wait.:

    There is an evolving COVID situation at home, so things are a bit busy today, this entry may be shorter than usual. The world: 2022 presidential race is heating up; Manila Mayor Isko Moreno announced his candidacy this past week (with failed senatorial candidate Dr. Willie Ong as his running mate), though some people suspect he is a spoiler candidate meant to split opposition votes. He's never really been opposition though? KBL has expectedly endorsed BongBong Marcos as their presidential candidate.

    A quote: "You are the books you read the films you watch, the music you listen to, the people you meet, the dreams you have, the conversations you engage in. You are what you take from these. You are the sound of the ocean, the breath of fresh air, the brightest light and the darkest corner. You are a collective of every experience you have had in your life. You are every single second of every single day. So drown yourself in a sea of knowledge and existence. Let the words run through your veins and let the colours fill
