Quarantine Chronicles: Mental Health

So yeah, the whole blogging everyday thing didn’t last very long; in all honesty, I wasn’t expecting it to. At first, it was something that would take up some time everyday, and then it was something I looked forward to and had all these ideas for, and slowly but surely it became something I dreadedContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Mental Health”

Quarantine Chronicles: The Importance of Hobbies

Recently, I’ve been seeing a lot of memes and posts about “Fuck the people who tell you now is the time to find a hobby, start a new side hustle, etc” You know the drill. We can’t ever seem to find any balance in this society; either we’re working ourselves to death or we’re self-caringContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: The Importance of Hobbies”

Quarantine Chronicles: 3O More Days??

So when I started re-writing this blog last week, I was actually pretty excited about chronicling my everyday journey through these unprecedented times. Now, I’m like wtf am I supposed to actually write about for another 30 days (or more). Most of my days are the same: Wake up, scroll through socials, will myself outContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: 3O More Days??”

Quarantine Chronicles: Comparison

I’m sure you, like myself, have seen your “screen time” exponentially increase in the past few weeks. Now, more than ever, we’re desperate to connect–I watch more people’s Instagram stories everyday than I do Netflix. I think it’s equal parts curiosity and boredom that have lead me to this almost voyeuristic lifestyle, but like notContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Comparison”

One Year Later…

Today I’m taking a little break from skincare to talk about something that’s been on my mind lately. It’s been almost year since I blew up my whole life, and in that time I have been able to reconnect with the person I missed so dearly: Myself. Stepping out over a cliff, not knowing ifContinue reading “One Year Later…”

[Good] Hair

Ever since I can remember, I’ve been keenly aware of my hair. Hating it. Loving it. Straightening it. Spending tons of money on it. My family fighting about it. And this was all by the age of 5. By 10 I started straightening my hair everyday. And last year I finally fulfilled my dream ofContinue reading “[Good] Hair”

Letting Go

It’s literally a question as old as time: How do we let go of things, even when we don’t want to? I would suppose that boundaries are a good preemptive measure. But who—at any age or emotional maturity level—is actually an expert at setting and maintaining all their boundaries? (If you are one of thoseContinue reading “Letting Go”

Sight

This week I decided to share a little something–kind of like a poem– I wrote! Sight As I look, What do I see? Darkness is too simple a word. It’s more liken to, the depths of all blackness. I’m at the bottom of a great cavern, where no light can penetrate. I turn and IContinue reading “Sight”

Intentionally, Unintentional.

Per what we’ve covered in the last few blog posts, I have very little idea about what I’m doing with my life; and that includes my dating life. This is partially due to the fact that a little over 7 months ago, my relationship of 2 years ended. I’ve been pretty candid about what allContinue reading “Intentionally, Unintentional.”

Health?

“Does this spark joy?” – Marie Kondo For the past 6 months of my life, I have been working hard to become “healthy”. That is such a broad statement so let me break it down. I have been working to identify unhealthy people, situations and emotions, and then rectify them by either saying goodbye orContinue reading “Health?”
