On good days when she’s not crippled by anxiety and creative insecurity, she writes stories and make projects on the side. On bad days, she spends the entire day binge-watching The Amazing World of Gumball while sulking. And on normal days, she eats her giniling na may patatas with a piece of lakatan.
