Hello, I'm Karla Bernardo
. If you Google my name, you will find the Wikipedia entry of a Canadian serial-killer - and trust me, you do not want
to read about that, but I'm sure you will because now you're curious - which is why I suggest you type Bombastarr
instead so you can stalk me better.
I am twenty-two years old, but nobody believes me when I tell them that. I am completely in love with the University of the Philippines, where I graduated with a degree in Creative Writing, and where I am currently a second year Law student. It is also where I learned how to speak a bit of Italian,
got a taste of the best tapsilog, and took striptease for PE.
I love telling stories, as much as I enjoy finding them.

As in most things, it started in high school. It began as a joke between me and a couple of friends during our freshman year (that was 2004), right around the time I started getting fascinated by blogging. I was thinking of a new URL for my blog, and the name just stuck - well, how could it not? And the rest, as they say, is history.
Yeah, it's nothing fancy, really. I wish there was a more exciting reason behind it but, no, sorry. :))
