Have you ever read Cruel Beauty by Rosemund Hodge? It’s a beautifully written novel. I’m not usually one for love stories. But I especially loved this book because it featured a pair of twin sisters, Nyx and Astraia Triskelion. These sisters were born into a kingdom that was ruled by demons. And Nyx, even before she was born, was chosen by … More Bahiyah Khalid : The Three Virtues
2015 flew by really fast for me. It’s December 1st, 2015 today. We are just days away from the end 2015. This time of year, for most people, is a time of reflection. And I guess, when you are approaching the end, you start thinking about the beginning. This year, I’ve written several posts that reflected my thoughts on a … More A Tough Year
The clamour of the exaggerated importance and effectiveness of a college degree has been getting louder. It could’ve just been social media, continuously highlighting every single complaint and opinion people have.

I recently saw a post on FB of a girl ranting about snobbish salesgirls at a high-end store. She was frustrated that these salesgirl treated her poorly (notice the pun?) just because of her appearance. In her post, she talked about how the salesgirl or salesman (not to be sexist) keep emphasizing the price tags to her … More Snobbish Workers at High-end stores

At the beginning of every new year, people are always racing to create a list of things they would like to accomplish within this year. To be honest, I have never been a “bucket lists” or “resolutions” kind of person. And that is because 1. I always forget about it. 2.

So 2014 is over and whether you are ready or not, 2015 is here! Like always, I didn’t really do anything on New Year’s Eve. I had two exams on 30th & 31st December. I was pretty tired from all of the late-night studying and I also had flu. So I ushered in the new … More ♥♥ 2014 in a Glance ♥ ♥
When I was younger I noticed that older people always slipped childhood stories into the conversations. I used to never understand why and quite frankly I find it boring and pointless to bring up such stories when they do not apply to the current, or should I say ‘modern’ lifestyle. But as I get older, I start … More The Story of My Childhood
