Bina has never forgotten the time she and her mother ran away from home. Her mother promised they would hitchhike to the city to escape Bina’s cruel father and start over.

As Bina’s lease begins to run out, and nightmare and memory get tangled, she will be forced to face the terrible truth of why she’s come to Catherine House and what it will take for her to leave...

College Diaries #2 : First week of classes, getting sick and new friends

Hey beautiful people!

I haven't been the most active blogger in this past month, but then it was also a huge month for me. I am officially a college freshman now, and moving to the US, and settling into college has been big moments that I needed some time getting used to. I promise I won't become sporadic since I am now collegebound ;D

I introduced a new feature on the blog when I was still at home so that I can share my college adventures ( or misadventures with you all ) Today we have the second installment, all about my first few weeks of college and all the amazing experiences I've had here so far.
