Long time, no hear

Hello there! It’s been quite a while. Looking at the dates, it’s an awfully long while, but when I think about it, it seems that the time just flew by. Anyway, two years ago, when the issues started around the world, I decided not to write my thoughts, anxieties, or hopes here. Why? because I […]

Undefeated ~ A Pocket Story

Claire was trying to eat. Her husband was sitting at the other end of the long table in the candle-lit dining room. The wind was howling outside and despite the crackling fire in the fireplace at the far end, she felt the winter cold creep into her bones. She was trying to stay upright, despite […]

New Year’s Resolution :)

Hello World, Missed me? I wonder… :) I remember that in 2010 I made a huge list of New Year’s Resolutions, which to be honest, I didn’t keep them. 12 years passed and I haven’t written down any lists on New Year’s. Not necessarily that I don’t have goals, it’s just… I think they hang […]

What’s the rush?

So… I saw this Instagram story with a young psychologist saying that she is trying to get rid of the habit of using her phone right before bedtime. The other night, I placed it on the cabinet which is slightly farther away from the bed. It was on silent mode. I sneaked into the covers […]

For or Against ourselves

A thought popped into my mind the other day. Why are we so eager to not disappoint the others? Why do we care about what they think about us? Let’s get this straight: I am not implying we shouldn’t care about what others think. I just wonder why we are so eager to do things […]

Monkey see, monkey do

We tend to blame people for imitating others, but when it comes down to it, isn’t life just that in the beginning? We imitated the adults when we start walking. It’s not like they sit behind us and put our feet one in front of the other. Or take laughing, for another example. No one […]
