Hi everyone! I was going to make a post on this blog announcing the publication of my book, but I totally forgot. Anyways, it was published by Comma Books and KPG Gramedia. It’s a collection of ten long essays about me and my life and my childhood. I tried to stay away from topics like romance, because let’s be honest: there are only so many ways to tell a love story.

(Enjoy this selfie of me bc I didn’t know what else to put for the image on this post). Honestly, just don’t read the comments.

I have started and restarted this blog a number of times, and this is the umpteenth time doing so because for some reason, all of my files have disappeared. Unfortunately, I do not feel like uploading 700 MB of data and waiting 4+ hours for a backup that may not even restore properly, so we are starting all over again!
