I am Monica and I am transitioning. After a breakup and resigning from a company I was with for four years, I am now pursuing my passion, which is writing. I do freelance work for NGOs and drink, eat, enjoy long walks, and take photos on the side. I started this blog as a reminder that my life is full of experiences worth remembering – my travels within the Philippines and out, the conversations I had over coffee, beer, and food, the music I enjoyed, the blog posts, poems, and stories I came across, and the people I met at one point or another. More important, I created this blog to share with whoever may read this the impact all these have made in me. Thank you for visiting and I hope that, in whatever space you’re in now, you will get something from reading the posts here. Enjoy! “Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.” - Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky
