We’ve all done it before. You know, doing something that we consciously know was essentially bad for us, yet we still do it anyway? Why do we do it even though we know, deep down, that we’re just setting ourselves up for a trap? Continue reading

Dear Jhack: Transfiguration

Dear Jhack,

Things are kind of chaotic right now but don’t worry, things will get better soon. Don’t lose hope just yet. You might not make it in time for Sara’s Broadway debut, but you will get there. Always remember that things happen for a reason. Don’t rush things. You asked God to guide you to the right path. He finally put you on that road. Walk through it slowly but surely. Don’t forget the lesson you’ve learned from today’s Homily: Continue reading

I can live without you.” As the youngest in the family, that hurts, but I learned to suck it up and accept the fact that he and I are practically Venus and Mars. Continue reading
