They are wearing so many masks that they have forgotten what their real face looks like.

The Almost album cover

Whenever you feel hopeless, all you need to do is go outside and realize that you have been molded into human form for some reason. You are somewhere you may never be again. Your actions, no matter how inconsequential you think they may be, are essential. – Brianna Wiest, The Truth About Everything


Destroy the idea that you have to be constantly working or grinding in order to be successful. Embrace the concept that rest, recovery and reflection are essential parts of the progress towards a successful and ultimately happy life.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. – Anna Quindler



If you will let people define you in their own terms, you will have a long list of traits depending on how they look upon you. Either they stated the facts or they had a bit of misconceptions, but the most important thing of all is that it is always you who knows YOU. I have a lot to say when it comes to myself. It’d impossible to just have one or two things to describe about one’s self. People are complex. They have their strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, good side and bad side.

I know in myself I’m complicated. My friends even said I’m unpredictable because oftentimes, I have that “don’t-talk-to-me” face. My mood changes fast and sometimes I’m also unaware. Maybe because I’m the girl who is stuck in in-betweens. The girl who is an ambivert. I have mixed up qualities of an introvert and an extrovert.

I drink and party with friends but I also date myself in a bookstore. I love going out and reaching distant places but I’m also comfortable with silence and being stuck in my room. I’m quiet and solitary but I have many friends and I can still get along. I love the ocean but I hate its depth. I’m a morning person, I love the dawn, but it gives me a weird sadness. A sadness that I just can’t let go.


The girl who is stuck in in-betweens has no plans to change the personality she has. She will always be out of conformity and she will live loving the best of both worlds.


Favorite, Video

Watchtower of Turkey

This is one of the best masterpieces in the field of digital media.

I had goosebumps the first time I’ve ever watched this video. My film-enthusiast friend showed this to me and I was so moved; I nearly went teary-eyed. How I wish more people could appreciate and recognize videos like this.This is never easy. This is beyond normal. This is art.

How amazing that when a camera focuses on a thing, on someone, their not-so-special details would be given much emphasis. Anything and anyone can be part of something bigger, something artistic and something to be proud of the human race. Through videos like this, you could say nothing is really “just ordinary.”

Faces Of Cazuca – The Illusive Peace For The Children Living In Extreme Poverty After Colombia’s War — Edge of Humanity Magazine

AfterWar is a story told in photographs of the children of Cazuca, a very deprived and stigmatized area on the outskirts of Bogota, Colombia, harboring the highest number of people fleeing from the civil war. Colombia is the second country with the most internally displaced persons (more than 6 million people) in the world.
