    I hop gleefully out of the shower after my long 5-hour session of washing out the floor wax from my hair, and calming down the bruises on the back of my thigh. My roommate stares at me with disdain.

    “Friends don’t do these things to each other. They aren’t your sisters.”
    “We were just having fun! Stop being such a killjoy, you just don’t understand.”

    It’s easy to get caught up in checklists and planners, to seem great on the resumé, to have your achievements seen. But looking back, did you really have fun doing them?????????

    She reaches out towards my direction. As always.

    “I’ve been on this bed for so long. Nothing has been working. Please do it. Please.”

    Her hands always do that when she needs me to do something for her, and so I automatically walk to her with a cup of water. But this time, it’s clear that wasn’t what she wanted.

    Slowly, I hand her the…[Read more]

    I’ve followed the yellow brick road for so long. It has brought me many achievements, many results – yet I find none fulfilling. Could it be? This path I am on is not right for me?

    There he is. Waving at me.
    “Hello!” I say. He nods and smiles.
    I have been waiting for this moment for months. Assiduous preparation was put into making sure I was ready.

    This is it.
    I got this.

    There are so many fields that we can take in the future — be it in the sciences or humanities. The diversity of these fields are important for the society as a whole as it divides the labor, thus making everyone potentially productive.

    The flashing lights, the cheering audience – I guess these are the things that add to the experience. But nothing beats my love for the artists. In 8th Grade, I first heard this song “The Rain” on a random playlist on 8tracks and it stood out. It was atmospheric and chill, without compromising the quality of the lyrics. I looked the artist up. A…[Read more]

    I keep myself busy with work and school requirements, yet sometimes I would go out in the balcony and just stare at the outside world.

    “You went with Tori? Huh? So are you just gonna leave me now? You found someone new?”
    I blankly stared at her. I didn’t know where she was coming from.

    “I don’t know what you’re talking about. I really don’t. Please. Don’t do this.” But my constant mutterings are of no use. It’s not like my reasons, no matter the veracity, helped me the first…[Read more]

    If only there was a forklift that would assist me in lifting all these responsibilities I carry on my shoulder.

  • humanly commented on the post, baguette 1 year, 4 months ago

    I took the regular route today. Got the usual groceries. Said hello to the same people. Visited the familiar bakery making the freshest pastries. But today, somehow, I decided to skip my usual doughnut for a baguette. I guess I’m just feeling pretty risky today.

    Hmm…

    Maybe I should tell him that I like him too.

    Most people tend to just do things for the sake of being able to say that they did it. Perhaps, it’s a feeling of having much more points than anyone in life’s game.
