Starlee is a thirty-something girl who barely looks her age, really — you wouldn’t think she’s married and a mommy! Ha! 😅
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 where she aced news writing in English. She’s gained much confidence now.
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, and now her little girl who’s gradually growing fond of books and handwritten material, will eat her alive.
More than writing, she loves teaching — and she believes teaching by example is the best way to go.
