Mid-Semester Bake #1

Sunday 20th September 2020: It's the weekend marking the start of mid-semester break! (finally). Two whole weeks of not having to deal with lectures, tutorials, presentations etc...BUT there are still major assignments to plow through. Still, it's a bit of a reprieve from the usual school routine and for that I am extremely thankful. And…

Tea Talk: mental health and growing up

It's been long since i spent a day doing nothing school related and it made me realise how circuit breaker has triggered this workaholic syndrome. Every day I feel the need to make new study notes, work on an assignment that's due 1 month later, read extra pages of the textbook...the list never ends. Even…

Rest and Rejuvenate: Floating Therapy

Last night I made the impromptu decision to spontaneously book myself a slot for floatation therapy. HUH? What's that all about? That was my initial reaction too, I feel ya.

But…

My Mid-sem Break/Stay Home Shenanigans

It's been a long time since I found the time to sit down with my laptop and let my thoughts run free, let my fingers fly across the keyboard. Which is quite ironic, considering how it's currently my 2-week mid semester break; yet I'm writing less than I used to when school was still ongoing.…

Of Staying At Home: Family Friction

Wednesday 15 April 2020: Todays marks the end of 1 week since I came back home after my quarantine in a separate apartment. Living in a familiar, comfortable, spacious area definitely has its perks - I get to move about freely and have ample space to exercise, I have a comfy bed to curl up…
