No Strings: When Creativity Roams Free.

(That’s a rather long title right? I know. I couldn’t come up with anything else. Yep, I have been found out, I suck at titles. Sigh)

People of the world, have you seen that beats by Dre commercial with Dj Khaled, Pharrell Williams, Nikki Minaj, Michael Phelps and a long list of other celebrities and our very own Pinocchio! I’m sure you are wondering, err…Pinocchio? Yep, you read that right. (more…)

Beauty

Lately, I have been having conversations in my head (yes, I do that. That’s not weird at all) about what true beauty really is, majorly because of all of the increasingly popular trends in makeup like contouring etc. and all of the crap out there that dictate how a woman should look and if you don’t look like that, well… (more…)

Hurdles

I am participating in the Writing Contest: You Deserve to be Inspired. Hosted by Positive Writer. This is a part of my story I hardly ever share, willingly, and I can count on one hand how many times I actually have. But reading that article on Positive Writer and reading and being inspired by so many entries, I have decided to share mine. Maybe, just maybe, someone might be inspired by mine.

I was going to have an extra year. All the moments leading up to this had shown clearly that this would be the outcome. It was inevitable. (more…)

The same ones I swore I would drop

I beat my chest and told myself, “It’s done! Never again will I be caught in this same hole”.

It’s been a little over 31 days and I am right back there (more…)

Taking Stock: 2016 In a Few Words

One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful. – Sigmund Freud

2016 has been an interesting year for me. It was the year I stepped out and did things afraid. I can only see this in retrospect now because they didn’t feel like that back then. I took a lot of steps and made a lot of decisions especially with my career that I had somehow always just wondered about in 2015. (more…)

Danfo Tales

Interesting things unfold in a Danfo (yellow commercial bus) everyday, ranging from strange to weird to downright LOL moments. So I have decided to put down a few of my personal favourites.

The weird: This one right here is by far my weirdest bus experience (oh wait, no it actually isn’t the weirdest. There’s another one, but it’s more disgusting than weird. Maybe someday soon I will have enough courage to write about it, but until then…). (more…)
