ALWAYS HERE TO HELP
The other day, I was sitting with one of my good friends and they asked me “Do you ever think about how others perceive you?” Since then, I have been pondering that question and wondering how others perceive me, especially with the way I portray myself online. When I started putting my thoughts and opinionsContinue reading “HOW OTHERS PERCEIVE YOU”
As a teenager, speaking out about personal struggles or issues you in see in the world is daunting and, as a teenager myself, I don’t see many people doing it.

There is no one way to ensure happiness. Some people seem to have everything and still can’t find joy, while others have virtually nothing and can’t stop smiling.

Nowadays, the time I have to translate my thoughts into a more coherent formContinue reading “THE CREATIVE PROCESS”

No longer was anything familiar, and to be honest, it felt like nothing was surprising anymore either. It wasn’t surprising that we could take a common struggle,Continue reading “WHAT 2020 TAUGHT US”
In my opinion, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I love breakfast because for some reason, it feels special. As you open your eyes, it’s something delicious and comforting and gives you a little extra courage to start your day. Now, I know that not everyone is a breakfast person, and sometimesContinue reading “GO-TO BREAKFAST RECIPES”
Last weekend, on December 13th, I turned sixteen years old. I got plenty of wishes from my friends and family and had the time to celebrate with dancing, and cake, and dressing up.
