Quarantine Diaries: Taking in the Moments and Living Life

It’s September – and in some ways, life feels exactly the same. I no longer understand the concept of time. In March, the world transformed. The loud roar of cities became quiet as people stayed inside. The crowded corridors of college campuses became isolated as students returned home to finish the semester. The buzz of […]

June Things

And just like that we have moved to another month in 2020, but weirdly I still feel stuck in the month of March — when I came home in the middle of my college semester for spring break, which, ultimately, extended into the rest of the academic year. I finished my junior year of college […]

I Stand with You

2020 has been the most suffocating year. I am trying to maintain optimism because I have a lot of things to be grateful for, but inside this twisted world, I am struggling to find the light. I’m struggling to find hope. I’m struggling to find a sense of normalcy. I’m struggling — but my struggles […]

Fifth Semester In Review {Fall 2019}

The semester is over (finally). Every time I write my reflections in one of these college review posts, I am shocked. Shocked by how fast time has gone. Shocked by how much I’ve grown. Shocked by how much I’ve experienced. The word that defines this semester is bittersweet (me, the baker, referring to a type […]

College Things {the absolute worst}

This month has been, without a doubt, the worst month of 2019. Up until September, I felt like I was flying through the sky in some sort of fairytale. I completed a semester of college, lived abroad, made some pretty incredible desserts, and then, almost suddenly, everything came crashing down. I felt like I was […]

Summer Things (being vulnerable & other stuff)

Hello, friends. How have you been? It has been a long time since my blog has been consistent. I remember when I started college, I made a promise to myself that I would not let my blog move to the back burner as I became fully immersed in my college experience. However, put simply, I […]

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 […]
