Let’s Do That Again

Hello, dear readers! As you might have surmised, last weekend was my birthday! It was a really lovely one; perhaps one of the better ones I've had since planned birthday parties stopped being a thing, like when I was a kid. It wasn't due to the wonderful and generous presents I received from family or… Continue reading Let’s Do That Again

Those Things You Learn

Hello, friends. Damn, it's been a while. I wasn't planning on being offline as much as I was. Granted, I was planning on not being online at all during my vacation--such is the life when you choose not to have social media on your phone and you don't take your laptop with you. That, I did plan.… Continue reading Those Things You Learn

Reflections of the Past

I've been realizing lately that I do those closest to me the absolute greatest disservice by treating them like eggshells to be tiptoed around. This is especially ridiculous because they don't deserve any such treatment… Continue reading Non-Existent Eggshells

“The Real World”

I saved this blog post as an empty draft almost a year ago, after I got accepted as a part-time supervisor at the library I currently work at. I never got around to writing it, yet the things I wanted to talk about are still as poignant a year later, so here we go. I… Continue reading “The Real World”

Weighing Importance

I've been doing a lot of adulting lately. Which, strangely enough, actually looks very similar to panicking: the increased heartbeat, the sweaty palms, the tears threatening to fall past your eyelids. The shrinking bank account. Moving out and living on my own in a kickass apartment is fantastic, but the bills that have followed are… Continue reading Weighing Importance
