Expectations. This time, far from reality

I am guilty. Guilty of expectations. I devour myself with expectations of who I am, who I could have been, and who I want to be. Expectations of how I should behave in front of my friends and how I should behave in front of my teachers. The abundance of expectations that I have in…

Let’s NOt BurnOut!

My fellow peers, the time has come once again. The time of cries, lack of sleep, exhaustion, frustration and pretty much anger.

Motivation’s Fault

I don’t know about you, but I had a very long list of things that I wanted to do during the break. From strategies of studying to even ways of improving my writing – I had all the fun and exciting activities that anyone would want to experience during their break. I was motivated to…

Butterflies, butterflies & even more butterflies!

Once again it’s that time of the year guys, where people give chocolate, roses and cheesy cards to their significant other. But for my fellow single pringles out there, we can’t seem to relate to this holiday in many aspects. But the one thing I’m sure we can all relate to is crushes: we’ve all…
