My Singaporean Experience {10 Things}

Just like that, it’s over. I spent 16% of 2019 abroad. Singapore has become more than just the place I visited for two months. It became my temporary home. The place I grew. The place I created some of the best memories of my life. The place I laughed until I cried. The place I […]

Second Year of College In Review + I’m Moving (Kind Of)

I have completed half of my college journey. I am in utter disbelief. Last year, at this time, I was the most miserable version of myself. On the outside, I had a smile that made it appear like everything in my life was fine. I got a summer internship, I was involved on campus, and […]

I practice something called the “three […]
