Graduate Studies — I’m starting in January!

We were told that we were going to be informed if we got into the graduates program of the University of the Philippines (UP) before December 1.

Chai Fonacier flourishes in the new and unknown (YoungStar)

I haven't written a profile in a long while and it was very tough getting back into the groove of writing one. What made it even more challenging?

BBC Newsnight Paxman vs. Brand

I have always enjoyed Russell Brand's interviews because he's not just funny but he's magnificently intelligent and he never looses control of the situation. The interviewers are always on their toes and on the defensive. And I love that about him. And then I saw this video and I am unbelievably floored by the intellect…Read more BBC Newsnight Paxman vs. Brand
