ZEKE XX: 19 is equal to...

my 19th year was the most colorful of all my teenage years, and it is by far my year of lessons and blessings.
For one, it is just a year of my many pitfalls, but for me, it is a year of many firsts. So many, I cannot count them all. If I can, I may forget the date or something.
However, I would let you take a glimpse of all these firsts as I give you my very first blogpost for ZEKE XX.

These, among others, are the things I experienced first-hand through my nineteenth year of life. I would never turn out to be who I am right now, if not because of the experiences I had.

Now, that I'm already on my last month as a 19-year-old-er, there would be pahabols. We'll post it later.

This is just the FIRST post. More will follow throughout the course of 31 days. Be with me, guys!
