Say It In Photographs: Fashion Comedy

I wore slippers to the city this week, then went house visiting for the Lunar New Year in them. Conventionally, the latter may be seen as a social faux pas. It is the norm for everyone to dress up well during the New Year, with New Year sales signalling its the season ripe for making…

It’s a Matter of How the Tide Will Turn, As Well As How.

Writing-wise, if I seriously wanted to get back into my groove of updating on a semi-regular basis, it may do me good to go back to what I do best-known personal posts about my own observations and mental health, although I do think there has been an over-saturation of this topic on my blog lately….

Things I Learnt From my Ongoing War with PTSD, et al.

I decided to publish this early, making this weekend 2 posts this week! Take it as a comeback gift to all of you readers who have stayed with me. I truly appreciate your readership, even though usually there are few commenters. Also because World Mental Health Day was just three days ago, this sort of…

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/…
