a story

You are a story waiting to be written To be typed out and scrutinised with a keen eye and edited, And put into a space, to be immortalised.   You are a story put out into the world; Into the eyes and ears of strangers and loved ones, Reading closely, trying to decipher, Giving life … Continue reading a story


Goodreads and Badreader

I don't know how to read anymore. It's been a long time coming, I guess, and a lot of is my own doing, but I struggle to read like I used to in the past. I first came across this issue sometime late 2016/early 2017, but being a student of English Literature at the time, … Continue reading Goodreads and Badreader

To 2018

I decided to break tradition this year. Okay, fine, my laziness and shame compelled me to break tradition this year. I'd had such high hopes for this blog while revamping it early last year, but I never got around to posting as regularly as I intended, causing the blog to return to its old status … Continue reading To 2018


Be Confident

In a world full of people wallowing in self-doubt, be confident. I've always been one to stress on self-belief and self-motivation, even when I tend to have so much trouble with that myself, because here's the thing: there's nobody who knows your true worth like you do (sometimes even you don't, but it's important you find that … Continue reading Be Confident


Change Reaction

I do not like Change. Change is that clingy friend who wants to hang out every once in a while, but - just like I do with most of my friends, sadly - I find ways to turn him down ("look, I know this is important and all, but just back off, okay? I'm not … Continue reading Change Reaction

But do watch the video if you can - the music and narration add to its … Continue reading Go all the way


Why it’s okay for Coldplay to not be just an alternative rock band.

This is something I've been bottling up for a while, for the simple fact that I don't fancy getting into pointless arguments with people over the internet when it's really just a difference in opinion. [which is how I attempt to make my peace with everything that seems to disturb me - I always take … Continue reading Why it’s okay for Coldplay to not be just an alternative rock band.

try anyway

-As much as I like to always post beautiful, inspiring content about life on this blog, I know deep down that that would be too fantastical to be true, especially because I want to portray life as it really is. And I'm sure any of you can testify to the fact that life is NOT always … Continue reading try anyway
