Will the secrets of the past destroy their future? Kim Del Rosario was abandoned by her date at the prom, and worse, she had the most terrible humiliation of her life that night.

Long Live The Social Network

Those of you who have followed me since the beginning of my Blogspot days may recall that I used to go by the name Meimei, which used to be a convenient way for me to keep my online persona separate from my personal life.

The First Dispatch: Here’s Your Surprise

You’ve heard me bitch about this before: I didn’t really want to start another blog. I was already beat up and tired when I closed shop on Domesticity. I wasn’t exactly ready to put up another site when I revived my travel blog, either, so I thought I should just concentrate on graduate school and put my writing aside where…

I’m Ready to Jump.

Photo taken at the Museum of Transport and Technology, Auckland, NZ. Yes, it’s really me. And I’m in the process of starting a brand new blog right now. New year, new outlook, maybe even a revamped Stella. More to come later.
