A couple nights ago, while my friends and I were wasting away in Simmons Hall, we somehow stumbled upon the topic of my blogger bio, to which someone read aloud: My name is Cami. I’m a lil bi filipina girl from LA county, from a city about 30 minutes outside… Read More
I love memes. I can’t help it—I’m a Gen Z’er, so I grew up on the Internet with meme classics like Nyan Cat and Gangnam Style. Memes play a vital part in my communication toolbox. I also draw and “Photoshop”… Read More

I have experienced love before, at least I think so. Awkward hand holding in my freshman year of high school, giggles behind lockers and sneaking out of classrooms, sitting next to each other at lunch in between periods. I’ve been in love before, where love was 18 hour phone calls… Read More
This summer was a summer of many firsts. First time actually living by myself. First time regularly using public transportation by myself. First time booking all my doctor’s appointments. This summer was a summer of balance, at least the attempt of finding one. This summer was a summer… Read More
