Writing and Exes

Writing and my ex-boyfriends have one thing in common. I have a love/hate relationship with both of them. When words find me – the feeling is almost orgasmic and nothing in the world can compare. But when they don’t and all I’m left with is a blank screen – the urge the hurl my laptopContinue reading “Writing and Exes”

The Only Checklist You’ll Need to Navigate Through 2022

Since the beginning of 2020 nothing has felt certain. Everything from the job market to romantic relationships became unstable and for some of us — has been ever since.

Move Over the Birds and the Bees. Let’s Get Comfortable With This Dinner Topic.

Let’s face it. Neither parents nor kids enjoy the ‘sex talk’. Some parents try to avoid it like the plague. Especially immigrant parents and as an only child of two immigrant parents, I can confirm this.

Let’s Get Comfortable With This Dinner Topic.”

How Establishing a Skincare Routine Helped Me in More Ways Than One

Skincare has become a modern day requirement as of late. It’s all about the hydrating face masks, snail creams and weird concoctions of avocado masks.

Questions You’ll Undoubtedly Get Asked When You Travel to America. As a Foreigner.

If you know me. You know that I love America. I know people have always questioned my choices given their questionable presidency, gun laws and well to put it mildly.

One Tweet at a Time.”

How to Develop a Sense of Patience. When You Don’t Have Any.

If you happen to know me (and I mean really know me), there is a good chance that you also happen to know that I’m a very impatient person. Always was.

How To Cope With 2021

It’s 6 am on a Friday morning as I’m writing this blog post and the world is quiet. But it has been that way for a while now. Quiet but chaotic. This pandemic officially started in March 2020.

Thoughts That You’ll Inevitably Have as a Rookie Indoor Rock Climbing Enthusiast

Growing up little girls almost always fell into two categories: You’d have your ‘girly girls’ who loved nothing more than to play house-wife with their little kitchen set and chucky lookin babies. Next, you’d have the ‘tomboys’ who loved nothing more than to run around the building in their sneakers playing tag and wrestling otherContinue reading “Thoughts That You’ll Inevitably Have as a Rookie Indoor Rock Climbing Enthusiast”

22

I believe there are three types of people in the world: Those who take calculated risks and will only arrive to a conclusion after they have completed multiple pros and cons lists to thoroughly evaluate a situation. Those who take risks with a stable mind and a confirmed opinion. Those who are just plain recklessContinue reading “22”

24 Hours in London

As someone who loves to travel, last year I was given the opportunity to travel to England on an exchange program through my university. It was going to be my first ever solo travel, and for someone who can barely navigate her way through Sydney CBD I was nervous as hell. I would like toContinue reading “24 Hours in London”

3 am Concerns

According to a very popular urban myth, if humans wake up at 3AM it is because there are spiritual beings out there that are trying very hard to reach out to you. For what reason, you may ask?

Let’s Play

She walked into the room swiftly carrying herself with grace and poise, with her cashmere scarf draped elegantly across her delicate shoulders as her Manolo Blahnik’s created a soothing havoc against the marble floor. She walked to the table and jingled her bag full of plastic coins as her eyes sparkled mischievously because she knewContinue reading “Let’s Play”

Dirty Laundry

We all have that small collection of moments that we keep deeply hidden because they aren’t deemed ‘appropriate’ by society, ranging from those wild nights with the girls or embarrassing situations that you somehow always managed to end up in as a clueless teenager.

Back in Time

Believe. A word that once had the highest of significance in our lives as a kid, but one that we seem to have forgotten the meaning of today.
