August was crazy, a positive crazy may I just say. Actually, what made it kind of special was the decision-making spree that happened.

Work - full-time, part-time, volunteer work, and the rest. Everything turned out great, I guess. And letting go of all things that stressed me out was, I think, the best part of it all. I couldn't imagine anything special to happen this time around, but I'm expecting for the best, of course. In August, it did come and (I think - well, again) I blew it.

One thing I learned: don't fret. If it doesn't feel right then I think it's okay to let go and move on from it. And I did. I don't know how many times we must repeat the cycle of moving on and letting go - different aspects and angles - but what's important is we do it, especially for those things that don't feel right or don't serve us some goodness. It varies, yes, and the only person who can weigh things is... yourself.

Ang Liham ni Andres Bonifacio kay Ka Oryang

1897 Mayo 1

Mahal kong Oryang,

Mali ka. Hindi kita nakasalubong upang sa dulo ng kalsada, ako ay liliko sa kanan at ikaw sa kaliwa. Sapagkat saan man tayo dalhin ng ating pakikibaka, ikaw lang ang aking itatangi at makailang ulit na ihaharap sa pulang bandila.

Hindi kailanman ako mauubusan ng salita upang maialay sa iyo bilang mga tula. Maging ang bulong at buntung-hininga'y magpapahayag ng pagsinta sa tulad mong umiibig din sa bansa. Hindi tayo sabay na tumawa, nagkatinginan, at tumawa pa nang mas malakas, upang sa paghupa ng halakhak ay may butil ng luha na mamimintana sa ating mga mata. Loobin man ng Maykapal na pansamantala tayong magkawalay, tandaan mong ang halakhak at sigaw ng ating mga kasamahan ay sa akin rin. Hindi ka dapat masabik sa akin sapagkat ako'y mananatili sa iyong piling. Hindi kita n…

PeoplexTransition: Rara Solitario

Rachelle Ann N. Solitario or Rara Solitario is one of the go-to-people of her friends, a traveler and an explorer. She is the only child of Cely and Carlos Solitario who grew up in a serene subdivision in Meycauyan, Bulacan. Being raised as a solo child, Rara knows how to make it to moments alone. Growing up was fun even without siblings for her cousins and friends' presence sufficed and with them, she shared and remarked a wonderful childhood.

High School moments are one of the cherished times Rara will always be thankful for as it prepared her to the most vital occasions of her college life not knowing at first that these events will change her entirely - her beliefs, emotions and point of views just to name a few.

At present, Rara walks towards the path of these transitions embracing another year of life that just recently unfolded. Another year, another time and another chance to begin, grasp changes and most importantly, improve. As she moves on from her dad's bereavemen…
