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
One of the things I knew even as I was just starting this whole studying again thing was that I wasn’t going to write about the experience exhaustively until I was done. Live first, write later. This is why I’ve mostly been tight-lipped about the minutiae of my current academic life. Everything that’s been written… Continue reading In Which I Reveal That I Hated The Uniform
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons,… Continue reading And whether or not it is clear to you,
