About

I personally pronounce my name /hษ›nษนi dส’ษ”sษ รงษชmษ›nษ›s/. I also think it's cute when people pronounce my first name /ษ”ฬƒสi/ because it's a French name, but you don't have to. Jimenez is my family name, so just Henrie Diosa is fine if space is an issue.

I don't just โ€œidentify asโ€ asexual, non-binary, and genderqueer, that is who I am. They/them and it/its are not just my โ€œpreferredโ€ pronouns; they are required. Click on the links to see how to use them correctly. Similarly, please avoid using gendered language when referring to me, and fall back on masculine terms only when necessary.

Auf Deutsch sind meine Pronomen es/ihm/sein, und wenden Sie bitte das Neutrum an.

I'm currently under the BA Creative Writing Program of the University of the Philippines Diliman.

I'm the author of Well-Arranged Inkstains, a self-published collection of short stories and poetry that came out on my eighteenth birthday.

One of my poems (the wasp) has been featured in MUSINGS DURING A TIME OF PANDEMIC: A World Anthology of Poems on COVID-19, available on Amazon, and another (leave your shyness) was featured at the Ngilngig Asian Fantastic Film Festival in Road Map Series' collection Darkness at Daybreak, available through their official merch store here. (Proceeds go to the Art Relief Mobile Kitchen Davao.) My poetry and short stories have also appeared in the ISIO's April 2021 digital zine here.

My work has also appeared in the online journal Quatrain Fish, here (malaprop) and here (to the universe).

I'm schizophrenic! I like it when people know. I prefer identity-first language ("disabled person") to person-first language (โ€œperson with disabilityโ€).

Some of my hobbies include musical theater, fibre arts (crochet, embroidery, weaving, sewing), and cooking.

German Tutorials

I teach German from the absolute beginner level (A0) to the intermediate level (B1). Whether you're reviewing for your placement exam or want to expand your world with a new language, I can craft you a personalised lesson plan and teach you at your own pace.

I am fluent in German at the B2 level, having completed 39 units of German at the University of the Philippines Diliman as well as a C1-level summer course at the Bremen City University of Applied Sciences.

Rates are โ‚ฑ 500 per hour for 2-hour sessions twice a week, exclusive of printed worksheets. Discounts are available for those who book long-term lessons. Please message me to set up a placement test and discuss schedules.

Henrie's B2 onSET certificate.

Graphics

I designed shirts and social media posts for Limitado and made gig posters for Bigtimetado Productions from 2015 to 2018; I worked as a graphics intern for ALLCARE in late 2019.

I also make logos, pitch decks, and presentations.

I work in Canva, Google Slides, Krita, and GIMP.

Cartomancy

Before getting a reading, please consider reading this article from Labyrinthos on phrasing effective tarot questions.

I have been reading tarot cards for fun and self-discovery since I was in high school, and professionally since 2018. I consider myself a pre-intermediate tarot student, most familiar with the Rider-Waite-Smith tradition and beginning to learn the Marseilles tradition. I have been reading the Petit Lenormand since 2018.

My readings are focused on the querent/client and the choices that they have in their current situations. I encourage them to use their intuition in reading their own cards in order for them to uncover the answers themselves.

Your reading and any information you give for the purposes of the reading will be treated with the utmost respect for your privacy.

These readings are for entertainment purposes only, and no guarantee is given on their accuracy. I am not qualified to give medical or legal advice; my services do not replace those of legal and medical professionals. I will not be liable for any damages arising from use of this service.

You can purchase a reading through my Ko-fi Commissions page.

Transcription

I have done transcription work for the Table to Stage podcast, as well as various local thesis students and researchers. It takes me an average of three minutes to transcribe one minute of good quality English or Tagalog audio, and my rate is $2/โ‚ฑ100 per audio minute.

I can add English and Tagalog captions to videos either as an SRT file or as text overlays. I use Kdenlive to add captions to videos.

I can do narrow and broad phonetic transcription with PRAAT. Please message me to discuss the project and get a quote!

Video Projects

In April 2021, I drew, animated, and edited a music video for MNR MJRTY's song Y, on their debut album In color and chaos. The music video was boarded in Storyboarder, finished up in Krita, and put together in ShotCut. I posted a comparison video with the storyboards and the final cut (without effects) side-by-side on my own channel.

In May 2020, I made a PV/animatic for The Guy Who Didn't Like Musicals, from the StarKid musical of the same name. I did all the art, from the storyboards to the illustrations, in Krita, and put the video together in Kdenlive.

In June 2015 I published an arrangement of Alice by Furukawa-P, featuring vocals by V3 GUMI and Kaito and an original instrumental made in Aria Maestosa.
