WHAT 2020 TAUGHT US

Most of last year felt like a strange daydream. Just every time we thought it was “getting better”, something bizarre would happen that seemed to completely uproot society. 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”

MY GO-TO BREAKFAST RECIPES

In my opinion, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I love breakfast because it feels special for some reason. Like, 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 sometimes we all like toContinue reading “MY GO-TO BREAKFAST RECIPES”

MY SIXTEEN BY SIXTEEN

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. I really enjoyed my birthday, and for girls in America, sixteen is a big one. However, it also made me realize howContinue reading “MY SIXTEEN BY SIXTEEN”

SO YOU’RE BORED?

I had originally planned to write this post quite a few months ago, back in May when everyone was under lockdown, and our lives were turned upside down. However, I instead decided to write a post called “Coping with COVID-19”. It included tips on how to deal with isolation and find gratitude in the mundaneness.Continue reading “SO YOU’RE BORED?”

DEALING WITH DRAMA

Tomorrow marks the first day of “Thanksgiving Break”, which for me, means that it has been almost nine months since I have been out of (physical) school. Many of my friends are in the same boat and it’s weird because, this is the longest period of time many have gone without attending classes. With physicalContinue reading “DEALING WITH DRAMA”

HAPPY DIWALI

Today is November 14th, 2020, which in the Hindu culture is the day of Diwali, or “the festival of lights”. Growing up, Diwali has always meant fireworks, good food, and celebration. However, it mainly serves as festival of new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil, and light over darkness. This year, Diwali has beenContinue reading “HAPPY DIWALI”

CONQUERING YOUR FEARS

If you talk to most people, their biggest fear would probably be clowns, snakes, or heights. Fears are something that everyone has, at varying degrees and on varying topics. However, fears aren’t only limited to the surface, what horror movies are made of. Fears come in all shapes and sizes and for most people, theirContinue reading “CONQUERING YOUR FEARS”

THE PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION

This past Friday I was looking through some suggestions my friends had given me for blog topic ideas. Mostly, I was expecting to see questions about silly, trivial topics that I could catch some inspiration from. However, one prompt in particular caught my attention and has been churning around in my head for a whileContinue reading “THE PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION”

AROUND THE WORLD: PLACES WORTH GOING TO

It’s been a hectic few weeks. With school starting, I have been slammed with homework, studying, and projects. Unfortunately, with everything going on, I wasn’t able to get a post up last week, and, I had a thought-provoking article ready to write. However, after spending the week writing about “though-provoking” topics, my brain just needsContinue reading “AROUND THE WORLD: PLACES WORTH GOING TO”

THE IMPACT OF SOCIAL MEDIA

Social media is what I would call a “necessary evil”. For most of us, it’s the first thing we check in the morning and the last thing we look at before going to sleep. The world is always moving, and at times, it can seem like the less time you spend scrolling, the more youContinue reading “THE IMPACT OF SOCIAL MEDIA”
