Dawn Brings a New Day

It’ll be Easter tomorrow.   As a child, Good Friday and Easter Sunday were compulsory church days for me. Even now, as a half-pagan semi-atheist (I am multitudes), I sometimes feel a slight desire to attend church services during Easter.  Easter, with its representation of new beginnings and coming back to life, feels even more important … Continue reading “Dawn Brings a New Day”

Passionate Frenzy

Valentine’s Day has never been a big day for me. Not when I was single and believed that I would be forever alone, not when I was in a relationship. Not even after I got married. I’ve always approached it from a cynical stance ie. as a day for KPI-driven capitalists to make a killing … Continue reading “Passionate Frenzy”

That person did it at least three times, using different accounts, jumping into the call each time someone kicked him out. He (I … Continue reading “Debauchery”

Yesterday, I experienced an overwhelming bout of anxiety (due to a combination of hormones, working with someone I think is genius and concerns over me not being able to produce tangible deliverables). Being the sort of person who needs to look for solutions, I reached out to a friend who’s currently studying psychoanalysis to ask … Continue reading “Anxious”

2019

Including this post, I would have written 305 posts on this blog in 2019 for a total of about 71,000 words. Although I didn’t achieve a 100% perfection rate for blogging every day, I’d say that I learned quite a bit about myself during the process.  Writing is my way of making sense of the … Continue reading “2019”
