My Chinese And IPosted March 6th, 2012 At 11:32 am By MTV ASIA
I have always been (semi) fluent in English, and growing up, I literally had to be dragged by the neck to Mandarin class. In Mandarin class, I’d talk and I’d laugh, I’d paint my nails with marker and memorize lyrics to Blink 182 songs – I’d pretty much do Everything apart from pay attention to what was going on. I wouldn’t even say my Chinese name, just because I did not want to. No real reason.Read more >>

So I realize I have been writing a lot about my heart and my boring melodramatic emotions, so today I will write about one of my favorite bands.Read more >>
My Heart Is HerePosted February 21st, 2012 At 3:59 pm By MTV ASIA
Sooooo, it’s been a week since Valentine’s Day now and we all know that I, Holly Grabarek, did not have a Valentine. In fact, I got broken up with right before Valentine’s, and well, my lame ex-boyfriend had to send me a message to tell me he is now, let’s just say, hanging out with someone who he knew would annoy me.
But that’s life right? If your ex-boyfriend does nice things, then he probably would not be. And no, we can’t be “friends.”Read more >>
What Does Your Heart Feel?Posted February 2nd, 2012 At 2:17 pm By MTV ASIA
Good morning cyberspace! It is 2:17pm. I am all dressed up, lying in bed, with pains in my stomach because I am kind of hungry, but probably more thirsty but think all that can wait for a 2:30pm-kind-of-time. Just closed a window of a highly annoying Rilo Kiley song that was playing. I love Rilo Kiley and Jenny Lewis is great but that song made me feel nothing more than frustrated at her whining and whaling of “you used to l-o-o-o-o-ve me”s and other lyrics that described heartbreak.Read more >>
Almost Resolute ResolutionsPosted January 31st, 2012 At 4:30 pm By MTV ASIA
My new year resolutions, are at this point of time still nowhere in sight. I could not see past my own nose last year, so this year instead of just jumping into making a long list of things I want to do, I instead am taking it slow and making commitments, as I go along.Read more >>
Bullied No MorePosted January 20th, 2012 At 2:47 pm By MTV ASIA
Bullying is like, this crazy big word that can be… anything. From someone calling you “stupid” to getting physically hurt, to just someone intimidating you. I don’t think it can be described in one word, because it has a different meaning to different people.
I’ve been bullied. In fact, I am, more than the average person, a push over. I don’t know how to say “No, I do not want to share my apple pie and ice cream.”Read more >>
New Year, New Show, New BeginningsPosted January 4th, 2012 At 3:04 pm By MTV ASIA
Well well, so it is now 2012. 2011 was an amazing year. I worked on so many cool projects like MTV EXIT and… (ahhhhh!) MTV World Stage. Working with Utt was super cool, and him leaving made me sad
But they say for every door that closes, another opens. And let’s just say the door that opened was pretty damn cool. Firstly, we have a new VJ, which meant a new co-host for me. Being socially awkward, I felt the stress of having to engage in close social interaction with someone I’d soon be spending everyday with. I met him and thank God, the awkward in “socially awkward” was nowhere to be found. Maybe because we are both part American, or it also could be that we are both part Asian, or well, simply because we both own white singlets. Either way, we get along and it has been (relatively) smooth sailing so far. But his interest in sports and my obvious lack of that has us on other ends of the world.Read more >>
The Trendy ZonePosted December 5th, 2011 At 11:47 am By MTV ASIA
What are trends? What IS a trend? Who says something is a trend? And if I don’t like the trend, will I not look trendy?
Hello kids, older kids, teenagers, older teenagers, and anyone older than me would make you an adult. Ohayo.Read more >>
Taylor Swift Inspired – What Makes Success?Posted November 11th, 2011 At 3:33 pm By MTV ASIA
Who’s first name starts with T and last name ends with T? Not T. Pain. Definitely not Kanye West. Well, that was a bit of a vague clue, but it’s Taylor Swift.Read more >>
MTV EXIT: What Are You Waiting For?Posted November 10th, 2011 At 5:02 pm By MTV ASIA
MTV EXIT Live in Manila has honestly changed my life. I found out so much about human trafficking and exploitation over the past month, it has left a hole in my already tainted heart.Read more >>
