a dreamy place ☁️

I want to live somewhere where the clouds are not as high and come to visit me through my window. The green is so green that it looks like someone who loved the colour spilled it all over the place with dew and little pretty flowers here and there. The houses are little and cozy,…… Continue reading a dreamy place ☁️

four mental break downs and three coffees please

The last few days have been a rollercoaster, not the exhilarating kind where you have a boost of adrenaline and feel at the top of the world, but the kind where you’ve had too much food and didn’t give it enough time to settle and now you’re going to barf your guts out. I’ve never…… Continue reading four mental break downs and three coffees please

Floating Thoughts

somewhere where the sky is in colours I’ve never seen

I want to run away for a while. From these gigantic concrete buildings, from the graded literature paper on my desk, the people that think they know me well, and mostly from myself. I want to run and run and run and run and run and run and run. To somewhere far where I don’t…… Continue reading somewhere where the sky is in colours I’ve never seen

I’ve been falling and falling (in love with everything)

The days are pleasant with big fluffy clouds and calm winds and sunlight that feels like a warm hug. I have never felt more at peace with my surroundings. I have never been so in love with everything. There are days when the sky would be bluer or the clouds would put on a show…… Continue reading I’ve been falling and falling (in love with everything)

what are we if not stories

Comethru by Jeremy Zucker and Bea Miller is playing in my ears as I lay on my bed on this perfectly lazy day. It’s a warm day, the kind of warm that feels like a snuggle, like the atmosphere is giving me a hug.

whilrwind days

Sometimes you don’t know how much you love something until you’ve completely indulged yourself in it. It’s like drowning, and then coming up for air. Lately I’ve found an immense love for instrumental music. I’ve realised lately that no every void needs to be filled, sometimes there’s a certain beauty to the emptiness and the…… Continue reading whilrwind days

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

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
