Trickle

The essence of life as I know it: you work hard, you get what you deserve. All that is true, that is, until you realize that sometimes you just don’t get what you deserve no matter how hard you work. When that clear truth is hitting you straight in the face, pounding at the brain…

Money makes the world go down

We are often told of the infamous quotation, “money makes the world go round“, and we often see the powerful ways in real life or in media of how money can alter situations/people/businesses/lives, etc. But does it truly power the world? Do humans really have such little respect for themselves in the way that they…

My girl Tay Tay gave me an epiphany

Today I went to Taylor Swift’s concert featuring Ed Sheeran and some other bunch of artists, but those two were the main important ones. I had an itching urge to write this blog post after the concert and you may have guessed it, the concert gave me an epiphany or just plain realization. I went…

Ode to MTL

This is my first ever post written on my tiny iPhone using the WordPress app. I really don’t know how people can blog using their phone. The most I’ve ever written using a phone was when I had to take notes for a class using just my iPhone and my handy-dandy Evernote app. It was…

Never out of bitterness

I told myself it was time to let go. To let go of the uncertainty, the expectations that were never going to happen, and the self-doubt. There might be many different ways of looking at this, but I’m making sure I’m making it clear which way this should be looked at. I didn’t do it…

What I’m worried about

So during exam season I read somewhere (probably thought catalog) that if you were to write down all of your worries/troubles before an exam, it will make you feel a whole lot better. BS. Writing down your worries just makes you worry more because now you actually have a set of tangible worries written down…

How people living alone think (aka me)

Living alone can be frightening to many people but to me, it’s a wonderful experience. It’s a subtle way of learning how to deal with problems on your own as well as a getaway from people and the hectic world at least once a day. I consider myself brave for choosing to live on my…

All that I ask.

Was for someone to overlook my odd demeanour, someone to accept my insecurities, someone to embrace my flaws, (as I will with you) someone to share memories with,

I didn’t want to, but I guess we should.

First off, the timing could not be any more horrible. Being stuck in the middle of exam season with still more than half of my finals to go, specifically 80%, is nothing short of a perfect timing, right?

Let history be history

Now usually I would not write things here that are too personal. Information just subtle enough to get the point across but nothing too in depth about my actual life. But … 

Clouded mind

It was a damp afternoon, you’ve told me before these two simple words “never again”, but you didn’t keep your promise. The water droplets splattered upon the ground, upon my shirt. Your eyes looked longingly into mine, you looked down. Ashamed, egregious, disappointed? I looked up, felt the shock from the top of my head down…

Childhood Revisited

It’s always the weird things that get me all emotionally riled up. Whether it’s seeing ice cream on the ground (not mine, of course) or just old grandparents trekking about; something about the loss of energy, weariness, and oblivious feel of tangible items that just makes me sad. I was on a skytrain heading downtown…
