Today has been one of those days. One of those soul-enlightening days. There have been several little words, phrases or feelings that have kind of stuck with me all day (thanks to an Alan Watts audio file, some YouTubers, the final episode of This Is Us, and a couple of my best friends - sup … Continue reading A Moment of Enlightenment
I HAVE BIG NEWS!! *drumroll* I'm going to be a flight attendant! I am so incredibly excited. I got the call while at work yesterday and couldn't contain my excitement. I encourage everyone reading this to be spontaneous and apply for something crazy - something that excites you. Who knows, you just might get it. … Continue reading I have news…
The past 24 hours of my life have been extremely strange. 1. I ended up having dinner at an old Indian woman's house last night. I'd met her 1 hour earlier. She made me food from her backward garden and showed me pictures of her family. 2. My friend has h pylori and is telling … Continue reading Weird, weird times.
Super cool! This blogger came across one of my posts and asked to publish it to her blog. Check out her page – awesome concept!
I woke up wildly unhappy this morning. My back was aching, the sound of my alarm felt like it was stabbing through my brain, and the sky was as grey as my hair will be after yet another long-as-hell day at work today.
So, I decided to make myself my favourite curry for lunch. I made it, it was amazing, I was starting to feel some sense of happiness again, and then I let it “simmer” while chatting with my mom as I ate my oatmeal. 30 minutes later, I run back into the kitchen to find my curry burnt to a crisp. I proceeded to hold in tears and a burning desire to scream at the top of my lungs, and instead took a deep breath and left my house silently.
At work my pants were uncomfortable, my backache felt like some god is trying to test my ability…

The first time I grabbed hold of my shears, I felt this pathetic sense of power. As if I were about to commit crime — social crime, that is. So, this has happened about five times now since I started working again: I give myself a trim or a little change in haircut, and my … Continue reading Why I Cut My Own Hair

Writers have this tendency to begin stories, poems, songs, movies- any piece of art with waking up in the morning. Have you noticed that? As if that's the beginning of all time and nothing has happened before that moment but 8 hours of darkness. Which, fair, sleeping is not something we consciously experience - but … Continue reading So I woke up…
Disclaimer: This post is essentially a self-therapy session of me ranting about my problems and solutions. Please enjoy if you care to read. So, here's the thing. I've mentioned already that since being home I've been in this weird life limbo that's caused me to feel this sense of dullness and unfulfillment, which is obviously taking … Continue reading Psychological Control
So I started taking this art class (every Wednesday night for 4 weeks), and I thought I would do a mini-blog series about what I am learning. Obviously I won't really be sharing a lot of the actual technique, but rather sharing my experience. DAY ONE: July 5, 2017 Work was fairly busy today, and … Continue reading Art Class (Acrylics): Day One
Sometimes it's fun to just be outwardly kind to people for absolutely zero reason. I did that today, just now actually, and it was freakin' fun. They got so happy and flattered and if reality is anything like what my mind has imagined it to be, I predict they will now be a happier and … Continue reading Gratuitous Kindness
