My semicolon tattoo

My semicolon tattoo

I’ve been wanting a semicolon tattoo ever since my aunt forwarded me a link to my Facebook account about its significance. This was just several months ago, like weeks after I got the portrait tattoo of Boris. I had it done by Oben Millares and he said he will refine it for free. I just […] Read more…

I Miss Japan

I haven’t updated for centuries because I’ve been busy traveling, having my own business, gaming with friends, etc. I traveled to Japan twice, first with my mom back in April and most recently with my sister in May.

I wrote this a few hours ago on Facebook. It’s very personal and will make the reader know more about me. Some of you who have been seeing my FB status messages might be wondering why I’m still affected by David Bowie’s death. Let me try to explain and I’ll try to be eloquent doing […] Read more…
