sweeter 17

yesterday the world turned the same, and I turned seventeen. I’ll be honest, I never pictured myself turning beyond sixteen years old, not that I thought I’d die by then, I just didn’t know what would unfold once my 16th year was over. I still don’t. It was 11pm, an hour inching closer to my…… Continue reading sweeter 17

a little distance

Winter was comfortable in town a few weeks ago, now it has packed it’s bags and is long gone. Days are warmer now, and don’t require me to be huddled in my blanket. My new academic year has begun, and my usual days include me listening to lofi hip hop music and studying or getting…… Continue reading a little distance

a friendly february ☁️

Summer keeps trying to crawl in but the Winter continues being dominant. If you were to enter into my room at any point in the day, you’d get lost. It looks like a landfill. Nothing is where it’s supposed to be and everything is everywhere. Since it’s exam season I’ve become a hermit. The only…… Continue reading a friendly february ☁️

juice boxes under a tree – it was all yellow

Yellow by Coldplay was blasting in my ears while I was writing my sociology notes last Tuesday, the window was open and a gentle breeze was letting itself in. My mind felt heavy being filled with different theories of sociologists, each having their own concepts of what the world should revolve around. That’s when my…… Continue reading juice boxes under a tree – it was all yellow

restless days, restless nights

My usual days are mostly me lying in bed after my lectures of the day are over pretending I’m lying on a cloud. The days got colder all of a sudden when I was expecting the summer to settle in. I’ve been running out of coffee faster than usual because I’ve started to believe that…… Continue reading restless days, restless nights

i bring the revolution with me

Life Update: I’m Going At My Pace

It was a cold day, the 14th, but ordinary none the less. The sunset was a mix of mauve, magenta and honey gold and it looked like somebody had spilled a smoothie over the sky, the kind of smoothie that you see on Instagram stories. Sunsets are the only part of my quick passing days…… Continue reading Life Update: I’m Going At My Pace

be gentle with yourself

Sometimes I feel that we only remember the instances when SOMEONE has helped us, or has been kind to us in ways. An act of kindness done by others that makes us feel a little happier. But why is it that we often neglect the kindness that we show ourselves?  The number of times we…… Continue reading be gentle with yourself
