dog cafe manila philippines

Two weekends ago, my friends and I decided to spend the afternoon with the furry little babies at Barkin’ Blends Dog Cafe in Quezon City.

How to Cheer Up an ESTP

So I’m writing this today, today out of all days when I’m depressed and I feel like despair is eating me alive. Right now, I don’t feel like I’m in control of my life, and I hate it.

Disclaimer: I’m not going to go as far as saying that these practices are healthy. I’m just narrating the story of how I managed to lose weight in the past couple of months.
