I kept complaining all year long about how I was being a bad blogger, how I was deficient both in quantity as well as in quality, that I finally decided to review my 2017 in blogging, and not focus on blogging goals ahead, as I usually do this time of the year. Continue reading “Of 2017 in Blogging”
Yiwen had a portable cassette player and she was always listening to music as she walked. It was very modern and deeply Western to listen to music that no one else could hear. Private music led to private thoughts. Private thoughts led to private desires, to private fulfillments or Continue reading “Of Private Music”
Holiday! Celebrate! – Madonna, “Holiday”
You know those random things you suddenly remember? For no apparent reason at all? Especially the kind of memory you’ve never remembered since it happened? As if I haven’t given you ample proof of my weirdness as a kid already (and an even weirder adult), I was ashamed of watching Continue reading “Of Celebrations”
It’s that time of the year again. That time of the year, when we celebrate that it is about to go. Good riddance I say, because it was crap anyway. The next one is going to be good, I know it. I am going to grow a whole new personality. No, I’m not pregnant. A whole new personality is not about to Continue reading “Of Goals and Challenges”
Hello everyone, I’m back with another video about the books I’m hoping to read in December – before 2018 is upon us. Continue reading “Books To Read Before 2018”
I would like to say I don’t write, but the thing is, I can’t write. I can’t even manage a blog post these days, and that was a thing I thought I could do. Well, I like to believe I can, though it is rather humiliating to be asked Continue reading “Real Time Ramble: Not Writing”
Today I am excited (and nervous!) to bring you my first booktube video. Booktube is youtubers talking about books. I’m jumping on the booktube bandwagon to be a better reader. I will also try to do different kinds of videos other than bookish ones, and in no way is this going to affect my blogging (unless for the better!). If you have a booktube channel, please leave a comment on my channel and let’s be friends!

I’ve become everything I swore I wouldn’t be.
Well, not everything, but imagine if I wrote the above sentence in all caps with an exclamation mark and an airbrushed picture of myself with Macaulay Culkin’s iconic expression from Home Alone. Nah, even that won’t be clickbait-y enough. Continue reading “Of Bad Habits”
There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women. – Madeleine K. Albright
You keep hearing it all the time. In words that go something like, “women are women’s worst enemy” or “how could she do this to me? She’s a woman too….” I’ve lately come to believe, why not? When women have always been pitted against each other Continue reading “Of Women Bullying Women”
I’m told I should ‘share my story.‘ But, I’m afraid by saying it, it will become real.
I suffered an allergy attack over the weekend. I went to get some medication at a local pharmacy on Sunday morning, clearly preoccupied with my inflamed nose and watering eyes, Continue reading “Of Sharing Stories”
