Life is But a Dream

Dear Reader, Have you ever seen a sight so beautiful that it feels like you are in a dream? I felt passionately about my dreams as a kid. In fact, when I was in late elementary school/ early middle school, I even took to keeping a dream journal (where I basically outlined the dreams I... Continue Reading →

The Devil Went Down to Where?

Dear Reader, Happy April Fool’s Day! In a departure from my regular content, today’s post will be a quiz. Because I do not have the capability to make a fancy quiz through this blogging platform, please note your responses (the correct answer to each question is worth 1 point) and see the answers at the...

Should Women Learn Krav Maga?

Dear Reader, Women should do whatever they want,*(note at bottom) but because you’ve clicked on this blog post, let’s talk about Krav Maga! What is Krav Maga? Unlike Taekwondo and other codified systems of martial arts, Krav Maga is “practical.” Developed by the Israel Defense Force in the late 1940s, Krav Maga is a fighting... Continue Reading →

Young at Heart, Discerning in Mind

Dear Reader, Dating, both online and in person, is an adventure. Years ago, before my very first relationship when I was in the “dating game,” so to speak, I remember feeling my emotions rise and fall like a wooden roller coaster. I would get so anxious about stupid things — should I message immediately or... Continue Reading →

If you’re embarrassed because you don’t know exactly what’s going on — don’t be— because like most things, the relationship between Russia and Ukraine is complicated. Through a combination of formal study and personal connections to the region,... Continue Reading →

Shouldn’t You be Studying?

Dear Reader, This is going to sound lame, but do you like to study? As a school girl, I never enjoyed the process of studying. As a child very keen on meeting expectations (I’m an “Upholder,” more here), preparing for a pass/ fail situation was always stressful. Furthermore, unlike a set of math problems or...

Master of None

Dear Reader, I’m not “great” at anything (well, except for maybe diligently blogging to you, I guess). I had this thought when I stumbled across an old acquaintance on a dating app. He reached out to me, and we briefly messaged back and forth. I hadn’t seen him in around four or five years, and...
