What is my identity? Who determines my identity? Who am I? I’ve been trying to answer this question for the last few days and I’m struggling. I feel as if I have to enter a dark room and confront myself with a bunch of questions just to figure out who I am. The reason I’m wondering […]
Reading a book often evokes a wide range of emotions. At first, you’re reluctant to get too involved with the story, the characters, and so on, but you keep on reading. Then, as the pages start to even out on both sides, you find myself abnormally intrigued by the characters, wondering where their stories will move […]
This year, I am going to build on last year’s resolutions and the manner in which I realised them. Setting realistic goals that help make your dreams come true is the best way to make sure they happen, and checking on your progress every four months is a great way for staying accountable for them!
That is what stared at me from a food advert yesterday: ‘Happiness in a hurry’. We pass hundreds of advertisements a day, they are literally everywhere, in shop windows crowding the street, on the newspaper that lies next to the sidewalk, the back window of a car, on your smartphone, at your office building, on the side […]
I always say I want to go hiking. I always say, we need to go there. I always end up saying it, again and again, but the mountains remain unconquered and the trails remain undiscovered. Until this year. I decided that I will go hiking. I decided we should go there. And I’m doing it.

When you are so angry that you feel you are ready to punch someone, you know it’s time for a little reflection and a personality detox. With work life stressing you out, the adaptation to adulthood and everything that goes along with it, it’s easy to get lost in all the complications in life and […]
Thank goodness that’s over. Let me just say, I’m not someone that gets stressed often. I can literally count the times that I have genuinely stressed about something on one hand. I’m 22. Now I do consider myself lucky, because who enjoys waking up in the morning immediately feeling dreadful about all the possible horrible […]
It really is a magical moment. I know that butterflies are just mere creatures like ant other insect; be it an ant or mosquito, but there is something awestriking about this aesthetic being. That is probably why we always try so hard to catch them. Admit it, we all have tried our best to hold […]
