And the consequence is this. I have to answer the following seventy questions and post it here in this blog that has been dead for over a year. Oh, and post the link on Twitter. So maybe that’s why you’re here. You can move on now by the way, as I am not that interesting.… Continue reading Hi. I lost a bet.
Hi. This is probably my thirty-eighth attempt to write this post (as in, this first post in this new space). Truth is, this should have gone up in February—that’s when I let my old domain expire, and when I purchased this one, and everything was go for launch, at least in my head—but as is… Continue reading Hello, world. (Again.)
Happy new year, friends! First off, I want to say thanks to the couple of people who have taken the time to send me messages in response to my post about finishing my second degree—in my head I like to think nobody reads my posts here, just because it’s a lot less terrifying to think… Continue reading 2019 Goals
I was sorting through my old Firefox bookmarks and found this from like five years ago. I am wondering how it resonated with me at the time, because I don’t remember coming across it, but reading it now, man. I feel this, and agree with this, and believe this, at this age more than ever. And–surely… Continue reading I choose as is.
I thought it would be fun to do one of these Q & A blog tag things, as I haven’t done them in a while. I grabbed this particular set of questions from the first results that come up when Google searching “73 questions tag,” and obviously they were inspired by Vogue’s 73 Questions with… Continue reading 73 Questions
Hello, world! As you know, my life sorta hit a pause button for three and a half years as I went back to university, but I am happy to report that Finally, Things Have Happened: In a span of (literally) three weeks and five days, I passed my thesis (together with my thesis partner), officially… Continue reading Play.
Here’s one fact: I’m turning 25 in a few days. Here’s another: I’m a believer that 25 is the ideal marrying age for a woman. That said, does that mean I want to be married in the next year? Ha. Absolutely not. But since we’re here anyway, fine—let’s talk about romance. It’s common knowledge that… Continue reading A Cancer On Romance
But there is a profound difference between what a writer does alone in her room — the honing, crafting, shaping, transcending of her own personal history in order to carve out a story that is ultimately a public performance — and the human need to quietly share in the most intimate possible way, to confess,… Continue reading My goal is not to make myself transparent
Today would be exactly three years since I quit my hospital job. Definitely over it, no regrets, I don’t even think about it much anymore… But I’m at my parents’ house right now, and it’s where I lived when I worked, and it’s where I keep all my old journals, so the aroma of old… Continue reading Journal Excerpt: Telepathy
If you know me, it’s far from a secret that I’m a huge typophile. So I guess it goes without saying that I always harbored a desire to create my own font someday. I remember printing out those turn-your-handwriting-into-a-font templates so many years ago, even before we owned a scanner, haha. That’s some serious wishful… Continue reading Feature: My First Font
