Inner Child and YouTube humour

The inner child doesn’t actually exist, as childhood is a social construct that has changed along with shifting societal norms and life stages. Before the era of industralisation and especially in the Victorian age, people as young as five are at a legitimate age even for working.. In harzardous environments. That’s a a comforting fact…

Future blog posts goals

I have two things I want to cover for Fridays’ posts. One is a look back from the time I wrote two blog posts about gender neutrality and another. Another is a beauty categorized post of what I usually have in my (makeup) bag. I have a afternoon class today, so I won’t be able…

Guy and little Baxter

I was listening to Kailee Morgue’s Ghost of Mine when completing this. I first wrote this in February when I dreamt up Baxter while on fluvoxamine. The rest are heavily fictionalized, though some elements are reality.  ——- He comes and goes as he wishes. I can’t tell him ‘no’, or ‘leave me alone for a…

Say It In Photographs: Sodium valproate versus fluvoxamine

Here’s the thing I find really funny: my sodium valproate medication for my epilepsy is twice the size of my fluvoxamine tablets and is oblong in shape. Fluvoxamine tablets are tiny white pills, film coated pretty much the same way as the SV. Yet I can swallow the SV with just one gulp of water…

I don’t appear ashamed

Another free-write. I’m writing for cathartic purposes, this one. A disclaimer, this flash is NOT autobiographical, although I do draw some elements from real life for inspiration. _________________ I don’t appear ashamed,  And truth is I don’t, no matter how women and men try to put those labels on me I refuse to wear. I…

Pink Lipstick Smeared on Teeth

Just a free-writing exercise off a list of prompts I re-discovered from a writing workshop I attended two years ago. Thought I’d share what I came up with in the spur of the moment. Pink lipstick smeared on teeth, she continues caressing his lips with her own in the glow of the dim moonlight. Their…

2017- My Blog Year Roundup

Happy New Year soon-to-be! If you’re living in areas of the globe where you get to experience all the four seasons, I hope you’ve enjoyed shopping for all the Christmas stuff this past week (especially for my female readers; all the limited edition Christmas makeup available). Having cosied yourself with a mug of hot chocolate/…

Say It In Photographs: The Lazy Person’s Meal

If this picture looks dark, it’s because it’s 2.30pm and I am not in favour of too much artificial light in the daytime even if it’s dim. Adding to the shade of this photograph,  the sky is a cloudy drab shade of grey, as it often is during the month of December. It’s also a…

The Power of a Name

On introspect, I’ve come to realise there’s a kind of subtle power in names that often may go unnoticed. Historically, generally speaking, at least according to research done by Reader’s Digest, names are tied into culture and aristocracy bestowed long names onto their children to indicate their high societal status. There’s a reason why sadly,…
