ALONE IN THE BEAUTY OF MY OWN SHADOW

June 11, 2019

"Why won't you go with other people? Isn't it sad going all by yourself?" These are questions that people always, always ask me. For the longest time, my answer to this would be just to shrug and say, "I don't know." But in reality, I perfectly know why I go and explore alone. I know, and today, I'm telling you my side of the story.…

ANOTHER CANDLE ON MY BIRTHDAY CAKE

May 24, 2019

You see, when I was younger, I would always write down my dreams and goals in life in bullet points. This was a trait that I have adapted in my early adult life.

THROUGH MY LENS

May 17, 2019

As I was rummaging through my hard drive to find some photographs from the past summers, one thing has struck me.

I've felt more at home with strangers sitting on a beach in a secluded island in Thailand, than sitting in this dining room with people I've known all my life. I've never felt so uncomfortable that all I wanted to do is go out and cry because it made my heart so full. I've never met so many judgmental people who look down on a specific person just…

LET’S TALK ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH

July 30, 2018

I have been feeling a bit depressed lately. It isn't my choice to feel this way, and I feel like I have no control over it whatsoever, but it is making me feel anxious. I used to feel really embarrassed when it comes to my mental health, but I feel like it's about time I should address it and maybe, write about it. So here goes.…

LOVE YOURSELF BEFORE LOVING OTHERS

April 9, 2018

Now here's a scary thought: self love. I always thought that loving myself before others was wrong and selfish, so I pushed my personal needs and feelings aside so I could focus on others. I always told myself that it's better this way, and that it was the right thing to do...or so I thought.…
