In search of online book club members

Hi! I am going to form an online book club and I am in search of 6 members. Ideally female, age 16-25 (if you don’t fall under those categories, it’s fine!). 

These are my ideas so far: Every month, we will take turns in choosing which book to read. We’ll talk about the chosen book online, on a scheduled date monthly. The person who chose the book shall lead the discussion. Well, book club rules shall be discussed and suggestions are welcome. :) There are so many things to tackle such as: name of book club, which online platform we will use for discussion, how to handle book rotations, etc.

I just really want to form a group that will keep my love of reading alive. I want to have intellectual conversations with people from all over the world.

FLUENCY IN ENGLISH IS A REQUIREMENT. And book choices should be those that are readily available internationally (i.e. NY Times Bestsellers). No further personal information is required aside from first name, age, and country you live in + time zone (for setting up the time of online conversations). If you are interested, you are to answer the following questions

Name (nickname):
Time zone:
1.) What is/are your favorite book genre/s?
2.) Favorite books?
3.) Favorite authors?
4.) Why are you interested in joining this book club?

Thank you :)

In Defense of the “UP Conyo”


Today, I checked out the “Narinig Ko Sa UP (Overheard at UP)” Facebook group and chanced upon a post about a conversation between two “conyo” girls in the bathroom. After reading through the comments, I felt that this was something I needed to write about.

"I wrote Pretty In Pink the week after we finished Sixteen Candles. I so desperately hate to end these movies that the first thing I do when I’m done is write another one. Then I don’t feel sad about having to leave and everybody going away. That’s why I tend to work with the same people; I really befriend them. I couldn’t speak after Sixteen Candles was over. I returned to the abandoned house, and they were tearing down [Molly’s] room. And I was just horrified, because I wanted to stay there forever."
