7 learnings from a year & a half of therapy

For most people, the curse of 2020 began in the month of March; but for me, it was a poorly scripted show since day one – literally and figuratively. I was ready to carry my trauma from 2019 forward into a new year until I finally opened up to my best friend and she threatened…

Books I read in 2020

As the ritual goes, every year I post spoiler-free reviews about the books I read in the previous year and in the process some of you hopefully end up chancing up on their next read—but before we proceed, let’s just take a brief moment to process 2020 in terms of reading goals. So… I didn’t…

A 2020 Review

If you’ve known me or have been reading my blogposts since years, chances are that you already know what a big self improvement nerd I can be. By far, 2020 has been the best year for me in terms of self growth.  I’ve discovered many online content creators before like: Matt D’avella, the Green brothers, Anna…

It’s okay to be a normal reader

Throughout my journey towards becoming the avid reader I’ve watched thousands of videos like ‘how to read more books’ ‘how to read fast’ ‘how to read a book a week’ and all sorts of elite crap enough to reinforce my existentialism. A time in my life came when my entire youtube feed was filled with booktuber videos…

Books I read in 2019

Hello booknerds! As the ritual goes, every year I read some books and with the new year that follows, I upload a blog recommending and writing a very brief review/summary of them (without spoilers). If you’re someone who is on the lookout for books, this might help you find your next read! 2019 was a…

On the other side of defence mechanisms

A couple of days ago while I was scrolling mindlessly, I switched from Instagram to YouTube and typed ‘how to live’. I’ve had this restless feeling in me since days now. I’m certain it began somewhere in-between the lockdown, and became increasingly noticeable and difficult to deal with later on.  I’ve tried many things since…

The Pursuit of Fappyness

Hey people! Long time no see? Your le homegurl blogger is back again to winnow facts from myths and bring back le solo play *confetti pops*. I recently finished watching Netflix’s Sex Education and that’s when Eros chose me as his apprentice. Now, I shall be the prophet who would bring le fap again! (Great…

Escaping an abyss

Our tale begins with an explosion. The birth mother of all that is. An amalgamation of trivialities, a symphony imperfected, with errors too base to mend nor mention. Ignored by the cosmos over the span of 13.8 billion years, of which we know and see but a distasteful 3%. Further when this whimsical giant went…

Books I read in 2018

It’s been a long time, without you my fartbags! (Yeah, sing it) This blog has been long overdue, but hey bitches your homegirl le blogger is here! Technically, I was supposed to write this blogpost within a week before 2018 ended or after 2019 started. It’s been so long, this feels like a slog. Late…

An existentialist adolescent’s guide to galaxy

We’ve been looking at the sky since our very primitive years. As sapiens we are curious enough to question the origin of all that is visible to us. The sky is one of the many things that intrigues us. Astronomy is a branch of science that studies celestial bodies and phenomenon through physics, chemistry and…
