#HistoryCon: the things people do

I took an ill-advised break from studying last Saturday, and had some fun at the first-ever #HistoryCon (tagline: Manila Makes History). I entered the convention with zero expectations. I don’t watch the channel, and I only said yes to the free ticket the day before. Luckily there’s a website. First Impressions There were exhibits you’d…

ASMPH MD/MBA: Week 1

Here’s to five years with these people I love, working for this country of mine.

Ballet: The Great Classics 2016 by PBT

Comic: Lucifer (2000)

I am in love with Lucifer. It’s brilliant, engaging, and I devoured the whole run within twelve hours. Perhaps. Lucifer’s struggles are, unalarmingly, my own, only magnified to cosmic scale. I have a problem with pride, and the asociality that comes with it. I can only bear few people, and they all must be as…
