It’s complicated

After several attempts at finding love, I’ve finally learnt some valuable lessons that I’d like to share with all of you. When people ask me what I seek in a partner and I give them an honest answer, more often than not, I’ve heard people tell me, “the trick is to go in with no…

Glamour Gates

We’ve all been to salons and we’ve all had experiences with our haircuts, both good and bad. Let’s talk about that. All the times I’ve gone in for a haircut, getting a style that looks nice wasn’t nearly as important as keeping my hair short was. I’ve always loved short hair and it’s an annoyance…

Colour my world a lighter hue

How to impress a guy 101

It had been close to a month since we matched on Bumble and finally, after a lot of planning, I made it to his house with the intention of spending some quality time with him. Now, it wasn’t at the forefront of my mind to impress this guy. It was really easy being around him…

The Art of Learning

Today I am What I was not the day before Today I see What I was oblivious to, the day before I may or may not walk a path that’s conventional I may turn into a crusader Or silently follow the masses Today I am what I am But tomorrow is still a day I’m…
