This has been the year when I have a ready answer when people ask what I’m up to: “I’m in school.”. 2018 introduced me to a facet of myself I tried to ignore before. It was no coincidence that the cover art of my moving out blog was Dua Lipa’s Scared to be Lonely. I… Read More 2018: Before I Say Next.
Dear Friend, I wanted to write this in Tinyletter even if I only have 2 subscribers there, but what the hell, no one reads this unless I publish on Facebook, which, I am not going to do. I’m supposed to write a business concept paper but the words in my head needed to get out… Read More Crazy, Lonely, Stupid.
Here I am four weeks later and not one bit less scared than I was when I started this. I left the comfort and stability of a steady paycheck for the probability of getting remote work while studying.

I Just Have Internet Connection.

Season 3 is a pivotal turn for the series with the Red Wedding being the biggest deal [breaker] in the War of the Five… Read More Game of Thrones 3 | A Smattering of Douchebaggery from an ASOIAF Book Fan

The one sure thing I will make an effort on is to allot more time to reading. I abuse my eyes, like that. January Dance of The Gods. Nora Roberts Valley of… Read More 2012 Books
Into the first few pages of 1984 and I was struck by the total lack of privacy of the citizens in fictional London. They even have a Thought Police who will come into the night and arrest you for committing a thought crime–any untoward thought and plot against the Party. It struck me how technology today has… Read More Privacy in 2012 (Or the lack of it but we like it).
