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.

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

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

it’s the little things

Do you ever start reading a book and get so absorbed into it that you don’t realize when it ends? The last two days were me snuggled in my bed with ‘Eleanor and Park’ in my palms, the cold air blowing through the window and me forgetting to have my meals because I literally didn’t…… Continue reading it’s the little things

I Am Not Glass, I Am Rome

now do not misunderstand me when I say I’m broken by broken I mean – a broken weapon like a sword that’s broken into two for when it went through war it cut what came in its way and its final victory is it’s open wound chanting its glory so if you ever kiss me…… Continue reading I Am Not Glass, I Am Rome

I made a list of things that make me feel warm and make me want to unpack the thoughts in my head: being nostalgic with a friend who you met after a lot many years creating art when you feel broken a mother holding her daughter tightly after she finally found her in the crowded…… Continue reading Sacred

Crashing waves and Sunlight

These past few days were a rollercoaster. They felt like I was pushed from the cliff and then saved a few feet before the ultimate fall. My adrenaline levels have been so high and my heart has been thumping so loudly I constantly feared someone could hear it. I’m not going to go into details…… Continue reading Crashing waves and Sunlight
