I have two younger siblings (much younger) and I am saddened to see how we reproduce patterns throughout our lives. Some people are built to be in successful relationships whereas some people just aren't. It takes a certain amount of selflessness to accept that the necessary give-and-take in marriage is extended to a lifetime basis… Continue reading Family, Familiarity

You know, sometimes in life, there are moments when you think to yourself... "damned if I do and damned if I don't". I try not to dwell on it, but I cannot help but find the situation annoying. There is nothing I can do to make things right. Self-awareness is not a popular concept. How… Continue reading Darn Trenches
I am one of those people whose mind rarely takes a break. I wash the dishes while thinking, I eat while reading, or I cook and do the dishes simultaneously.
