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 […]

March Things

This March is unlike any other. I’m sure this March was also unlike any March you have experienced. You’re either A) at home in quarantine, or B) on the frontlines providing necessary services during this uncertain time—I’m looking at you healthcare professionals, food suppliers, super market employees, journalists, etc. I fall in A.

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.

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 […]

Third Semester in Review {Fall 2018}

*Blink* My third semester of college is over. Gone. I will never be able to relive it—truthfully, I don’t want to. Although I have attended inspiring classes, created countless memories, and gained so much perspective, there were times of pressure, pain, and papers (so many papers). I have learned so much. I have lived so […]

When You Have a LinkedIn Crush

Friends, how have you been? I haven’t stopped by in a while, but with school, professional commitments, and life — time keeps on fleeting and I barely have time to breathe. It’s funny how technology was created to make us have more time, yet I often find myself with none. Time, TIME, where are you? […]

Summer Adventures

Summer has continued to fly by — as usual. My summer life has been different than all the summers I have ever experienced. In the past, summer was a time for me to sleep in, watch movies all day, and dawdle around my home. This summer, however, has me waking up early every morning, dressing […]
