About Ice

I wouldn’t bore you with my life so to make it quick and painless:
I am passionate. I am a music fanatic. I am a self diagnosed chocoholic. I am an insomniac.

I will forever be a dreamer. I’ve been a wannabe writer since I learned to scribble my ABCs. I am movie crazed. I am studying to be a mind traveler.

I am definitely a beach junkie.No need to say that I am caffeine freak. I devour books when crazy little distraction called life doesn’t get in the way. I am guilty of being a hopeless romantic.

And most of all, I am a proud womyn loving Filipina.

I am hardly an expert on anything but if you want to get in touch with me, you may drop me a message here, twitter or owl posts.

UPDATE: Finally broke down and succumbed to Twitter (@IceCanicosa). I’ll follow if I ever make sense of this strange new world. If 160 characters isn’t enough, email me at ice(at)caffeinatedsonnets.com

  1. love, love, love your work !!.. Caffeinated Sonnets was one of the first blogs I ever read before creating my own and it was very much worth the read. Check out my blog if you get the chance. Its fairly new but has potential…www.memoirsofaroseintheconcrete.blogspot.com

    • Thank you very much ๐Ÿ™‚ On blogging life, I am barely starting and I am just hoping to be able to keep the fire for as long as I can.

      I checked your blog and you’re definitely on the right track.

      Keep writing, I’ll be following your posts too ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I’m struck by your right-on take on relationships: the joy, the pain, the uncertainty. So, you see, your poems touch me. And thank you for reading my blog on poetry. This is a terrific site.

      • Thank you for such kind words. I would greatly appreciate your take on writing – been hitting bumps lately. Is it possible to contact you through email?

      Thanks for taking the time to read my posts. Keep in touch ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Please don’t envy me Ice ๐Ÿ™‚ Each of us has a gift, a talent, uniquely tailored to serve humanity and to return the glory to the Giver of the gift. Yours is with words, mine is…well I’m not sure if it’s photography as I am still learning it, but let’s celebrate what we’ve been given and not give in to Envy. I am glad that you enjoyed the photos. Again, the gift and glory belongs to God, not me. I’m just using and sharing it ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks again.

      • Hi Ice,

        How do you make that horizontal bar that you have your : Home button, of chasing raindrops, etc. appear?

      • I think it depends on the certain WP theme that you chose (not too sure though). Mine was done via the widgets section, then I customized the menu.

        You may check out how to videos on WP to get the hang of it. http://wordpress.tv/category/how-to/
