This book. I might have written more notes in this book than I did in Amanda Lovelace's book. Again, this was a book of poetry. There were no capital letters, which I enjoyed. Although, one thing that set this book a part from Lovelace's is that Kaur put drawings on some of the pages. I… Continue reading milk and honey by rupi kaur – Book Review
Everyday this week I have thought about writing a post, and then I just didn't. So here I am apologizing. I am incredibly sorry. *Does a full ninety degree Korean bow.* I would love to make the excuse that I've been busy, but if I say that, then I have to give you proof I've… Continue reading Is it too late to say I procrastinate?
No. Seriously. What did you say? Or, at least, what are you saying? This just struck me--as it does every once in a while--the knowledge of how much power my words have. I was just listening to the song "1 life 2 live" by The Quiett (a Korean rapper). It came across my Pandora station,… Continue reading What did you say?
The Dragon Sash I still wore the veil held in place by a jade comb, but I refused to wear the elaborate headdress. I relented to wearing everything else. The shoes I was wearing were made with a soft red fabric. Green turtles were stitched into the sides. The dress I was wearing was white… Continue reading Story Time

Wooooow *hint of sarcasm*), and now am in the process of going through Lulu and self-publishing the little thing. It should be done and ready within a couple… Continue reading Get ready ya’all.
Let me clarify. I have a book addiction. And possibly a phone case one. Anyhow, I spent well up to a hundred dollars on new books and phone cases. Let me show you. I'm excited about them. I bought The Art of War by Sun Tzû milk and honey by rupi kaur Emperor of the Eight Islands… Continue reading Addictions are expensive.
Everything is a choice. Waiting for a writing idea to come to me, is a choice. Getting up and writing because I need to whether I feel like it or not, is a choice. Procrastinating is a choice. Getting up at five a.m. four days of the week to go to the gym is a… Continue reading Probably a challenge, but also just something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately.
This book is the most fabulous thing. It is raw and honest and tore me open to be honest with myself. My personal life (past and present) doesn't relate to half the things this book talks about, but I have a general understanding of its topics just from my own experiences. It definitely helped broaden… Continue reading the princess saves herself in this one by amanda lovelace – Book Review
A friend of mine and I were talking recently. She said, "My goal this semester is to focus on myself. That sounds selfish, but I can't worry about taking care of everyone else. I need to focus on me and take care of me." (Maybe that's not the exact wording, but it captures the general… Continue reading Selfishness or Selflessness
