• Imagine, you’re me.

    You just got off of work at that unnamed home improvement store. Your feet hit the pavement as you trot to the bus stop. It’s 8:07 pm and the bus is late but you’re never sure how much to trust the bus app, so you’re hurrying to continue your walk as you pull a Tupperware […]

  • My 31 day roundup.

    I have officially made it to 30 posts; this is my 31st. My goal was to post every day, which I didn’t quite get to, but I’m still proud of myself. It may be cheesy to say, but I’ve learned a lot during these thirty days. I’ve learned a lot about writing, and most importantly […]

  • Growing up.

    Anecdotally, it seems to me that many of my friends and I are doing a lot of reflecting these days. I’ve been thinking a lot about my childhood, my high school days, and my time in college. The reason why is a mystery to me. Maybe, since this time of my life has been marked […]

  • Daily practices.

    Well, hello there. I moved to a new house yesterday and wrote up something afterward, half asleep and exhausted. I then proceeded to forget to post it. Go figure. I have a couple of things I try and do every day. For example, I try to do my skincare routine every day. I complete a […]

  • On cleaning and clearing out the cobwebs.

    Today was for cleaning. Tomorrow is for moving in. I never enjoyed cleaning when I was a kid because it was too boring and it was too much of a pointless (in my child brain) activity my mom made me do. Now, I find it to be both a chore and therapeutic, oscillating back and […]

  • The Thing from Another World thoughts.

    The Thing from Another World is the 1951 precursor to John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982). Both are based on a novella: “Who Goes There?” by John W. Campbell. I watched The Thing (1982) with my roommate last week, and this week, we watched The Thing From Another World. Here are a couple of my notes […]

  • I don’t know what it means to be Asian.

    Happy AAPI Month everyone. I don’t know what to put here, all I know is that I feel melancholy. Honestly, I’m tired of being asked what my ethnicity is. I didn’t mind it at first, but the more it happens the more I don’t understand why people want to know. There’s not a ton of […]

  • I watched a video about Everything Everywhere All at Once today and started tearing up.

    Sometimes, I get into moods where I feel like something is missing. All of a sudden, I can’t figure out what to watch on YouTube, none of the food in my kitchen sounds good to eat, and my mind is a jumbled and bored mess. I’m in this feeling now. I think it might have […]

  • Podcasts.

    One of my favorite podcasts right now is Just King Things, a podcast hosted by Cameron Kunzelman and Michael Lutz. In it, they go through every Stephen King book in chronological release order and discuss the book, themes, and how it fits in with the rest of King’s work. Proudly, I can say that I […]

  • i want to love and be loved.

    i think i am a considerate and nurturing person. i can look at my friends going through tough times with so much love in my eyes, a heartbreaking amount of empathy that feels ceaseless (though i need to remember it’s not—the less i meet my needs for myself, the less empathy i have to extend […]
