literally having 2020 vision haha

Here’s something about winters, they make me sleepy and sad, but not the depressed kind of sad, but the gloomy kind of sad. The kind of sad that makes me want to switch my phone off, make the room dark and stare at the ceiling for hours. I’m a stereotypical winter lover, I wear fluffy…… Continue reading literally having 2020 vision haha


exhaustion and recovery

So I accidentally broke my December writing streak on the fifth day but hear me out. Yesterday was my last paper for the term and I had a whole week to prepare for the exam, but when did I actually start preparing for it? 12 hours before my exam began. I know what you’re thinking.…… Continue reading exhaustion and recovery

here’s everything i thought about today

I got up an hour before my alarm rings because of a bad dream and tried to forget it. I thought about how much I wanted to forget that but couldn’t and yet I thought about it every hour of the day. After waking up I thought about the chocolate chip cookies and I thought…… Continue reading here’s everything i thought about today

little by little, she moves forward

The days are getting colder by the day and if you have a blanket as soft and fluffy as the fricking clouds you would know how difficult it is to un-tuck yourself from the bed in the morning when you’re in the most perfect sleeping condition and it feels like all the planets have aligned…… Continue reading little by little, she moves forward

winter murders my productivity

The sunsets have started happening sooner and the days have gotten colder and my intentions of getting out of my bed and doing anything productive have diminished GREATLY. The human race is so evolved and yet we couldn’t include hibernation in our seasonal changes list. This is what a human winter change list should ideally…… Continue reading winter murders my productivity

“everyone has their yellow paint”

If you’d peek in my closet you’d know that I was one of those people who has a clothing item in almost every shade and colour. I don’t remember when this rainbow closet dream began, but I think it did when my mom told me her favourite colour was black. She’s not one of those…… Continue reading “everyone has their yellow paint”

It’s about 10:28pm, I read Looking for Alaska by John Green all day long and I just have one thing to say. I love books that smack me in the face and make me question everything that I ever thought was right and hold me by my ankles and hang me upside down so that…… Continue reading a great perhaps

a little empty space

There are days when I feel like a tub of ice cream, and people end up taking bigger scoops out of me then they ought to, leaving me a little less for myself. But I’ve made peace with being a little incomplete, because there is only more space to grow, to flourish. Taking parts of…… Continue reading a little empty space


a list for when everything gets tiring

Some days I find it hard to get out of bed and face the day, or hold a conversation even with the people I love talking to. It gets straining to even jump in the shower or eat a snack, and everything just feels tired and unnecessary. We are under the constant pressure that if…… Continue reading a list for when everything gets tiring
