Featured Image Credit: Photo by Parker Johnson on Unsplash I voted for a party today. Not for an issue that I cared about. I don’t even know if I agreed with the people I filled in bubbles for. I barely knew anything about the people I listed on the ballot. So why did I vote? … Read More

Boyfriends

September 27, 2018Thoughts

When people ask me “What’s your type?”, I tend to lack words for a response. Sometimes I might focus on a personality trait or two that I think I like, but in actuality, I’m not exactly sure what kinds of traits are compatible with mine in a romantic relationship. I don’t really have a frame … Read More

Linguistics

September 25, 2018Thoughts

Feminism. What does this word even mean? In a culture where we inflate this meaning out of spite for a certain gender, the word can change on a dime depending on who you’re arguing with or which party feels the most entitled. Racism is another biggie. People use the word a lot in various contexts, … Read More

My boss walks to the copier and opens the paper drawer. “Ugh. Why can’t anyone seem to refill this thing?” She complains to herself. The copier has 5 drawers. I think to myself. She’s spending all this mental energy on such a small issue when only one drawer is empty. But then I find myself getting annoyed … Read More

For the women who take an hour to get dressed and do their makeup, I’m sorry. For the ladies who work their asses off at the gym to lose weight, I’m sorry. For the divas who order a salad on a date, I’m sorry. I’m sorry because I judged all of you and I was … Read More

Arriving at a Milestone: My Self Love Journey

September 17, 2018Thoughts

When people think of the word ‘milestone’, it’s usually associated with a birthday, a graduation, or the point where the first number in their age changes. Not many usually see ’29’ as a milestone.

January 26, 2017Myers Briggs, Typology

In this video, I discover David Bowie’s Myers Briggs personality type by watching interviews of him. Not only that, but I analyzed a few of his lyrics just to be thorough. Here’s an introduction to cognitive functions which I use to determine his type. The interviews I grabbed are from 1979 and 1998 respectively. You can … Read More
