I made a promise to myself at the beginning of this year to put myself first, to ‘do me’ if you will. I have come to the abrupt realisation that it is mid April, and we are practically a third of the way through this year. I will take this moment to pat myself on … More I’ve started seeing someone new…
It’s January again, yet another year has come and gone. Why is it the older I get the quicker the years go by? 2019 is here and there’s not much we can do about it other than embrace everything it has to offer. Reflecting back on last year’s New Year’s post I had one true … More 2019 is about me
It’s been a hot second, hello hi how are you? I am fresh off the plane, not in LAX with my dream and my cardigan, but back home from 6 weeks of trekking around Europe and the UK. Just like every 20 something says coming back fresh from a Europe trip, “6 weeks was definitely not … More What travelling solo around Europe taught me
I’ve tried to write something about the new year for the last few days, but every time I sit down at my laptop no words come to mind. There is always so much hype about a new year, but why? Why do wed get so fixated on the idea of starting the year off right? … More Where’s the new in New Years?

Honestly I wasn’t even excited, I was more terrified to visit, thinking I wouldn’t love this city as much as I had the first time … More Toronto 2.0
I’m nearing 22 and yesterday I went to my first festival. You can probably take it festivals aren’t really my scene, and so a one day festival seemed like the way to go. Another reason why festivals have never been my thing is that I rarely seem to know the artists playing and I don’t … More Groovy things I learnt
There comes a point in a busy life style where you need to stop and ask why you do all these things. Why do you push yourself so hard? Why do you spread yourself so thing? Are you doing it for you parents, because of peer pressure or merely the concept of never being good … More This one’s for you
On numerous occasions I have been asked what this blog is about, why do I write they ask, what do I write about? I’ve always told myself and others that this blog has no true trajectory other than projecting my thoughts and voice onto a figurative page. What I’m currently feeling is no exception. “If there’s … More Happy.
I always thought that moving to the other side of the world would fix all my problems. I had this preconceived idea that by escaping home and all its troubles I would reinvent myself, or give some meaning to my Gen Y struggles.
