The Catcher in the Rye

“It's Christmas time and Holden Caulfield has just been expelled from yet another school… The Catcher in the Rye is an all-time classic in coming-of-age literature- an elegy to teenage alienation, capturing the deeply human need for connection and the bewildering sense of loss as we leave childhood behind.”

I float

I wrote this piece last 2017 as a reminder to myself that sometimes life will never turn out to be the way we always want it to be. This is my letter to my younger self.

Boracay: Before the Hiatus

“The most patriotic thing you can do is to take care of the environment and try to live sustainably” – Robert F.
