It’s that, like for all of us, 2020 has been one hell of a year. On top of that, having an… Read More 2020 is almost behind us
Though I reflect on my own actions and life often, I don’t do it every year to reflect over a year’s worth of accomplishments. Part of it is because I have a poor sense of time and digging up memories on command is hard. I often can’t recollect simple questions I know very well, like… Read More Reflecting on my 2019
My spoons, are GONE. Meaning it’s time to take a few steps back and go at my own pace. So I’m planning some extra self-care in this month. There’s several things I’m thinking of.

To explain a… Read More 3 Weeks of hard work
It’s been a couple of weeks since I decided to take a little break from writing.

Honestly, it hadn’t been all that easy to… Read More I’m Back!

I’ve been quite absent lately and haven’t written a writing progress update in a while. Because of that, I thought I’d make a more, general update. The last couple of months of the year, especially November and December have been very demanding for me, for several years now. It’s the birthdays, holidays, the social responsibilities… Read More Writing Progress Update: 26/11/2017
