  • Endings

    I don’t think endings are my strong suit. I’m proud of my writing here, but I do think some of my posts falter at the end. Either they don’t really end, or they have a finality that feels trite and too buttoned up.

  • Getting back into the swing of things

    I’m back at my old retail job—the one that prompted me to make this blog in originally. At first, it baffled me that I had arrived back and suddenly felt like writing on thiss blog again. My camp counselor job was taxing, though, making me walk 10,000 steps a day and chase kids through the […]

  • My face.

    Every day I get bogged down in my own thoughts. They bounce around my head and, well, I’m not going to be mean to myself and say that these thoughts are pointless. Thoughts about remembering to eat, doing my laundry, going to work, etc.—I need those to live my life. Sometimes, though, I look up […]

  • More rain, more stupors.

    I found myself as I often do: running through the rain without a jacket. “What the fuck!” I exclaimed as rain shifted from small drops to bigger, pounding ones upon my face. Thunder cracked overhead, startling me. I took a moment of rest under an awning, breathing heavily with a mixture of exercise-induced joy and […]

  • 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 […]
