So here’s the deal – everyone should watch Treasure Planet; procrastination is related

This habit started in high school. Probably grade 11. I was stressing out even though I was fully prepared. Or at least that’s how I remember it. I had an exam but I needed to do something that wasn’t school related before I went back to studying. I needed to do something I didn’t care … Continue reading

What I keep on me when I leave the house i.e what’s in my back pack – travel, school, etc

I was not a fan of purses and though I’ve accepted they are really useful I find a lot of options to be really impractical. When I’m out I only keep what I need on me in the most efficiency way possible. I like to be hands free because otherwise I feel burdened. I do … Continue reading

Inadequacy and stomping feet

I want to be mature about this but honestly, stomping around like a two year old feels so much easier right now. One thing I’ve never liked about adults i.e. everyone older than me ever, is how unfair they’ve been. Nothing but a bunch of liars really. Side note – I’m gonna work on the … Continue reading

Why I almost didn’t go to university or pharmacy school

I know it sounds dramatic but there was a lot of thought put into it. Expectations – so many from so many people; it almost felt like a curse at times. The dramatization isn’t gonna stop soon apparently. Classmates and friends and teachers and just the natural order of things dictated I would go to … Continue reading


My Dada passed away early last month. It was difficult because it was a real person I actually knew, talked to and always saw, just gone. I had a conversation with one of my cousins a few years back, when my grandfather’s health started to decline. We talked about how death would come and it … Continue reading

I don’t want to title this something corny but I can’t come up with something vague and cool so here you go

Here’s the deal; sometimes I think  woah I must be pretty shit because I never really talk to anyone, vice versa, and so I never really make any friends. That must mean I’m just not nice or like.. friend material [LOL] But then, after an extended period of time I’ll talk to someone by accident and … Continue reading

Junk food and growing up

A while back I had an epiphany: I can do it. I can buy all the chocolate and candy and chips I want. I can do it today, I can do it tomorrow and I could do it forever. I’m an adult now. As a kid, I ate a lot of junk food. I ate … Continue reading

This is me having more satirical fun, the good ol’ days

*peers over my laptop* I’m still here. Okay, for some reason I like to torture myself and NOT complete stuff I need for the next day until like 11 pm and instead, I work on things that are due several days later. Why? Why do I do this to myself?

Hey, Okay

You know what’s messed up? Feeling like shit and not knowing why. What’s worse? Realizing why you feel like shit and then realizing it was better not knowing.   Dramatic eh?
