This short film, written and directed by the brilliant Paul Tellefsen, and featuring some of Instagram’s stars, is basically my source of inspiration right now.

I first joined Instagram around two years ago, but I never really got around to using it as creatively as I would have wanted, and was using it only as a repository of all the (mediocre) mobile snaps I would take then.

After getting a more decent phone to work with (an iPhone 5), I eventually decided to overhaul my entire feed and delete all my past Instagram uploads just last December, in an attempt to maximize my use of this new medium with which to exercise and improve my *skills*.

Anyway, the process has been fun. I’ve been pushing myself to try new stuff, as well as see things from a different perspective.

I will not be leaving traditional photography behind, that much I’m sure of, but at the same time, I’m also not discounting the fact that I have grown to love this engaging visual medium as well.

TLDR: I’ve rediscovered Instagram. And now I’m in it for the long run.

Spent the whole afternoon shopping for clothes and doing personal errands before crashing into the local Starbucks for my weekly green tea latte and cinnamon bun fix.

I also had my eyes checked and learned that my astigmatism has gone up a notch which explains the nasty headaches I’ve been having lately. The good thing though, is this: I finally got to have my own shell-rimmed glasses haha.

How was your day?

This week on Instagram.

Heist

So I got to watch the Manila leg of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ Heist World Tour last night and yes, just as I expected it to be, it was fucking awesome.

I didn’t take that much photos since not only I was too busy fanboying last night, I also find it somewhat disrespectful to the artist, especially if you spend the whole hour looking at the performance through your smartphone screen.

Was kinda bummed about the set list though since they took out one of my favorites, Cowboy Boots, from the encore. But that’s just me nitpicking.

Anyway, here are some photos.

Burn

Love me until I bruise and bleed


And even then I’ll sing a thousand songs for you.


Let your body crash against mine and let my heart beat upon your ribs

– their beating carried down your spine to the feet that carry you


and your spirit.

Let your lips come upon mine in heated passion

-          Their fire trailing through my whole being, transforming me, burning me

Into ashes and cinders and dust and smoke.

Let  my entirety by consumed

-          For

to live, first I must die

My ongoing stint as a reporter for The Philippine STAR has been an adventure on its own.
The endless hours of research, the interviews, staying up all night for breaking news from around the globe - doing all of those, no matter how difficult they can get, have become almost second nature to me and there is nothing more in the world that I’d want to do.
However, given the fact that I, for one, am the walking-talking example of ADD, I figured, that since I’ve gone over one of the items on my bucketlist, why not try something new?
So yes, I am going on another adventure - one that’s not too far from where I am right now - but still, one that’s frightening, breath-taking, blood-pumping enough to breathe new life into my being.
I must be honest though: I still am not sure if I could pull off both, but then again, as I have learned, there’s no harm in trying, 
PS: I may or may not need a new portrait of myself for this new *adventure*

But I don’t want comfort. I want poetry. I want danger. I want freedom. I want goodness. I want sin.

So my editorial feature on Filipino Olympian and figure skater Michael Christian Martinez got released in today’s issue of The Philippine STAR.
This article is actually among my favorites, as it was the first time I wrote about a topic that’s inherently positive and inspiring, instead of the usual fare I write about haha.
Anyway, here’s a link to the article: http://bit.ly/1p6hMhz
