The other day, my three friends and I were heading out of school after playing our game in a basketball tournament that was held over the weekend. While walking, we began to talk about this one girl on our team.. (HOLD UP!! Before you jump into any conclusions, hear the whole story first! We were not exactly gossiping! It’s not like that, I promise!)..we were talking about how on-point her game was, and how extremely committed she was to the game. I am not sure what exactly I was adding onto this discussion, but as soon as I had completed my statement, that very moment, Continue reading “BE THE ONE THAT PEOPLE SAY NICE THINGS ABOUT!”



This little phrase popped into my head about a day ago, and I have been thinking of it ever since. It probably sounds like a basic statement, but when deeply understood or interpreted, it means a whole lot more. I am not sure if you remember this, but if did you read one of my previous blog post (LOVING YOURSELF: A mini how-to guide), there was a picture that I shared in it that was asking, if you were told to mention all the things that you love, how long would it take before you mentioned yourself? This is where I borrowed or got inspiration for the phrase, ‘then there’s you’. When some people are asked to mention a list of items, they will frequent using the word ‘then’. For example, if someone is asked to do the above, and give a list of all the things that they love, he/she might say something like, “God, then my family, then my friends, then my puppy/cat/dog/pet, then food, then movies, then…” and as they would go on, I had this picture in my mind that, I (or someone else) would cut that person short and say, “..then there’s you!” Like a little reminder of “Hey! You haven’t mentioned yourself yet so, there’s you..then there’s you, in that list, right?” Continue reading “THEN THERE IS YOU!”

After Winter Must Come Spring (Reblogged).

It’s Monday! I have seen many bloggers that I look up to here on wordpress say, ‘don’t force content. It should always come from within!’. I have quite a number of ideas for a few blog posts in my head, but they are not ready to be typed yet; so, instead of forcing them out, I decided to reblog a really good post that I read today, which I feel I can actually relate to right now. I read a beautiful quote somewhere that says, ‘Don’t be discouraged! It’s often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock!’, and that quote goes beautifully with this post. I am sure that you will love this piece.

​“After winter must come spring. Change comes eventually” – Lauryn Hill

The mere fact that spring comes after winter is a clear indication to all mankind that no matter what you are going through right now, it will pass and things will get better.

There are times when we feel as though we are in a situation that we will never get out of. It might be the thought that you will struggle or hustle for the rest of your life and it could even be the thought that you might suffer from a heartache for the rest of your life. Let us refer to these moments as ‘winter’ moments because all you ever want to do is stay in bed because the world just seems to be cold.

While you are in that ‘winter’ phase it is important for you to keep in mind that spring is yet to…

Hey there! It’s Monday, and today, I am here to discuss very serious stuff. I have been teased by idlers/catcallers many times before, but I have always decided to let it go. This time, however, I am going to write a piece of my mind. Today (it’s Sunday as I write this), Continue reading “THE TRUTH ABOUT CATCALLING, AND WHY IT NEEDS TO STOP!”


Most, if not all, of us go through some really dark days; you know, those days when we dread waking up in the morning? Or when we force a smile all day but cry all night? While some of us are lucky enough to get over those days or moments, others are stuck in them. I am no pro, but I think that depression is becoming quite a big issue, especially among young people, and it’s time we started (or rather, continued; since people are now more aware of it) talking about it. Here are some ways (from some of my experiences), that I think can help get you out of that hole of emptiness. Continue reading “DEALING WITH DEPRESSION AND DARK DAYS.”


It’s Monday people! It’s Monday; and if you are anything like Garfield, you are probably having a grumpy morning / day, complaining about how the weekend went by so fast. Well, I am not here to lecture you about how you should quit whining and appreciate everything that you have, or how you should be doing a job that you love enough to look forward to Mondays ( that’s for another post); I am here to try and make your morning / day better by combining laughter from Aunty Acid, with a little inspiration ( yes I did something that crazy! I drew inspiration form Aunty Acid memes).

I hope this makes your day better! 🙂 Continue reading “AUNTY ACID INSPIRATION.”
