It’s one o’clock in the morning here and it’s past by bedtime now so I’m a bit sleepy. I’m on a free-blogging mode now so read at your own risk.
Today is the first day of April. I’ve read somewhere from twitter (via @HecklerForever of professionalheckler.wordpress.com) that every month that starts with a Sunday has a Friday the 13th. And that means a special treat from my favorite Graphic Novel/Comic Series, Trese. You can read the first two books free on their blog (http://tresekomix.blogspot.com).
I just checked My Stats and I got some surprising results. March 2012 has been my best month in terms of visitors/readers/blogwalkers. And from this month alone, the number of blog visits matched one-third of my combined blog visits last 2011. It’s an all-time high for me this March 2012 in terms of readership.
To All Friday Fictioneers
I know there’s one good reason why I achieved this feat: Friday Fiction.
I would like to say thanks to all the Friday Fictioneers out there, especially to Madison Woods. I appreciate all the likes and comments. More power to Friday Fictioneers!
The best way to learn isn’t by reading, though — it’s through actual doing. The mistake some people make is they just read about something, but it’s when you actually use the knowledge that it becomes real, that you find other problems that you have to solve, that you learn all the things that go along with main idea. If I don’t put something into practice, I don’t really care about learning about it.
Today, the Philippines celebrates the 26th anniversary of EDSA Revolution. It was a peaceful uprising of the Filipino people against the dictatorship rule that governed the country for more than 20 years.
To celebrate the historic event, below are three versions of Bayan Ko, the unofficial theme of the People Power Revolution. Click them if you want to listen and it will open a new tab.
2002 — One day, our grandmother left our house without us noticing. We have troubles in taking care of her because of Alzheimer’s. Her body is still strong but her mind isn’t. We celebrated December holidays without her. We just learned that her body was found in a morgue. A vehicle hit her and the driver just left.
2008 — Our grandfather died of old age. Of course there is a specific diagnosis but we didn’t bother to know. After six years, it’s time to reunite my grandparents. Our grandmother’s remains will now be buried together with our grandfather.
I bought the 4 volumes of Trese. I highly recommend this local comic series. I know I’m not good in writing book reviews so I’ll just put here a link log of different book reviews about Trese. I picked five good book reviews and it’s up to you to decide whether you’ll like it or not.
