She’s a huge fan of Korean drama but doesn’t like K-pop very much. She doesn’t appreciate Filipino romantic movies because, she says, they’re too westernized. She’s conservative by nature, having grown up with her dear lola.
Starlee usually writes poetry — the traditional rhyming kind because she’s OC; she even wonders how she managed to pass Essay and Essay Writing with a whopping 3.50. She writes when she feels like it; she writes with her emotions, which is why keeping a blog that is non-verse is seemingly difficult. She remembers, though, that she once aced a descriptive paragraph writing activity in second grade, her teacher even gave her an orchid from the school garden for it.
She can’t write news — that’s a hard fact. Or so she thought before attending a seminar-workshop in journalism in September where she aced news writing in English. She’s gained much confidence now.
She often talks gibberish, but somehow has quite more sense than other gibberish-talkers. She writes with such depth that only she, or maybe a few of her closest friends, can understand. Not that she’s far-fetched. She’s just… weird.
Starlee must write because she’s losing it; she’s had writer’s block for years you don’t call it writer’s block anymore. She has to — needs to — write; otherwise, her campus journalists will eat her alive.
More than writing, she loves teaching — and she believes teaching by example is the best way to go.
