Hello and welcome to my blog!

I am Jirah Merizz, a 19-year-old college student living in the Philippines. I basically blog a little bit of everything but my favorite posts to write are my random thoughts and ramblings, my spiritual journey, faith and how I cope with mental health issues I struggle from time to time. And oh, my current program is Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy.

This blog has been alive since December 26th, 2015. I didn’t really know what to write before but I just kept on going and wrote anything that I could possibly think of and if it’s worth-sharing, then I turn it to a blog post. If you’ve decided to go deep in this blog and read my first posts, you’ll notice how much my writings and stands have changed– and I’m totally okay with the changes as I know that I have improved even just for a bit. But starting this decade, I am going to share more of my art: my prose, poetry, water color paintings and a bit of photography.

I hope you enjoy and learn from this blog! I might write posts about my stands in philosophy as well but please take note that I’m an amateur trying to learn and dive deep in the world of philosophy to attain wisdom and later on achieve eudaimonia. See you in my posts!


I don’t know how you found my blog, but I am open to anyone who wants to collaborate with me and if you want me to visit and take a check on your blog, I would gladly do so. Just contact me in any of my social media accounts or in the comments section below. Don’t be shy! ❤️

    I thought I am the only one who are shy to tell others that I write blog.

    1. To be honest, my relatives still doesn’t know that I am blogging. But I loved it so much to the fact that I didn’t notice I was posting everyday. And I didn’t mind my relatives and friends, if they were meant to see my blog, then just let them be. I also learned that no need to be shy and afraid, just express how you truly feel and the rest comes along! And I am honestly so glad that I encouraged you! This is one of the reasons why I started blogging ☺Thank you so much x

  48. Hi, nice to meet you! 🌷

    1. Hello, nice to meet you, too! <3

      1. 🤗🤗💕

  49. Your blog is so wonderful, Jirah! And oh my god, hello, I’m currently pursuing an honours degree in Philosophy too!! I saw the eudaimonia in your tagline and I was intrigued immediately! It’s so great to see a blogger who’s doing the same course as I am. I’m currently a 2nd year, and I’m not sure how this quarantine will go, but I should ideally be starting my third year in July! Looking forward to reading more of your posts!

    1. Omg you make me so happy! It’s actually so rare to find someone in this community who has the same course as ours! Cheers to philosophy even though it really makes my head hurt at times! ✨

      I’m kind of having the same problem too! I don’t know when our classes will resume but good thing we have gotten clarity now that our freshman year in college is already over. 😊

      Thank you so much and I hope you have fun reading my posts! I am also looking forward to read your posts and get to know you a bit more! ✨💗
