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
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
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

And I'm sure any of you can testify to the fact that life is NOT always … Continue reading try anyway

Are any of the efforts ever worth it? inadequate. insufficient. just not enough. When are you ever going to define yourself … Continue reading To the ‘inadequate’
It catches me unguarded Often when I'm otherwise preoccupied It plays out in my head Somehow, I can never grasp it until it's too late. It's over.
