It’s that time of the year again, when everyone feels the need to reflect on their accomplishments of the year and draw conclusions about where to go from there. For me, it’s not just the end of the year 2019 but also the start of my thirty-second year on Earth and I never quite know … Continue reading Thirty-One
This may seem like a little bit of a weird question to ask oneself early in the morning but weird has surely never stopped me in the past 😉… I obviously know what my name is and all the other basics of who I am, but who am I really? I sometimes wonder how many … Continue reading Who Am I?
I’m feeling a little bit off, experiencing an amount of discomfort that’s neither overwhelming nor negligible, but just enough for it to be prevalent throughout the day. Irritated and irritable beyond reason. In constant search of motivation. Fighting against myself along every single step I take. Antsy and tired, restless and in desperate need of … Continue reading Paradoxical Rambling
Not too long ago, I went to a party with a few of my girlfriends. I was super hyped to go since I hadn’t been to a party in a while. You may be a little weirded out by the fact that I, an introvert, occasionally enjoy going to a party even though parties usually … Continue reading Musings On Consent
Last night I was reading Brene Brown’s latest blog post and it struck a chord. She wrote about the lovelessness in the world and how we have to “live love to give love”: Doubling down on love demands that we be brave enough to straddle the tension of staying awake to the struggle in the … Continue reading It’s All About Love
This one’s about connection. No, I’m not gonna share hacks on how to most efficiently connect your devices to wifi (the importance of which obviously shouldn’t be underestimated in this day and age) but I do want to write about human connection and the side effects of the lack thereof. For some reason, I’ve been … Continue reading On Human Connection
Long time no see (or rather no write / read)! I somehow lost track of time these last couple of weeks. I had three weeks off in August, which was a very appreciated break from the office life and I think I actually made the most of it this time around. I often fear that … Continue reading The Social Heebie Jeebies
Only a few things grind my gears as much as the ghosts of the texting world (okay, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration, but you get my point). Ghosts generally stop replying and then vanish out of your life and into the digital void forever. This may happen at different stages: prior to even meeting up … Continue reading The Ghost
I feel like I’m surrounded by people who don’t seem to be happy. A lot of them are complaining about a myriad of things and seem disappointed by various life events or even life in general. I’m actually guilty of occasionally being a complainer myself − some days just suck, am I right? Given that … Continue reading Why Is Nobody Happy Anymore?
*hums melody of the infamous Faithless song* It’s true. Sleep’s been evading me. I’m tired 24/7 but it takes me hours to fall asleep at night. Hours! And for the first time in the history of my existence, I’m not exactly sure what the root of my sleeplessness is. It can usually be tied … Continue reading I Can’t Get No Sleep
