January's Gratitude Journal: Film and Yoga

The beginning of 2020 has been quite good to me. With some residual holiday joy, a steady (ish) at home yoga practice, time to reconnect with friends, and to do some self reflecting, I’d say January is turning out to be a lot better than I thought it’d be. So, to remind my self next…

Currently Reading Vol.5, and where I'm at with reading in 2020

Amongst many other things, I, unfortunately, didn’t complete my 2019 reading goal (wanted to read 24 book, read 23 and a half. VERY frustrating), so I felt a bit shy to make my goal for 2020 30 books, which is what I had originally planned for. I feel like if the number is too high…

My decade (almost) in Art

Before we get too far into January, I wanted to do my own recap of the past decade, but instead of going through memories, I thought I would look back at the art I was creating every year of the past decade (alright, not every year, because I am not home and annoyingly I couldn’t…

Conversations with Strangers

If you know me, you know I am not the extroverted type. I mostly dislike meeting new people and wear my “do not talk to me” face out every single day. Along with it I usually carry a book and keep my headphones on even when my phone has run out of battery and there’s…

Another year has gone by, and contrary to my yearly tradition, this year I didn’t have the time between Christmas and New Year’s to really unwind and reflect about all the things 2019 taught me, and what I wish to accomplish in 2020. Everything was just too hectic, with family and friends to visit, so…

How I am trying to have a more sustainable Christmas, and how I am struggling with it

It’s that time of the year again. The time to be with our loved ones, eat our own weight in delicious food and spend our yearly income in material things to show our love. Only this year, make it eco-friendly. I have been trying this past year to be more conscious of my habits and…

Currently Reading Vol. 4

If you read my last Currently Reading, you might recall me defeatedly admitting that my yearly goal for 2019 was “just not going to happen”. It was the middle of October and I was at 16/24 books read in 2019… but the tables may have turned. As of today, 25th of November I am on…

An Ode to my Adolescent Self

I have seen a lot of posts about “all the things I wish I knew when I was younger”, “things I wish I could tell my teenage self”… you get the idea. I do wish that I could go back in time and give my past self couple of big hugs here and there, but…
