Some days I just feel like this image when it comes to writing. Pounding my head against the keyboard, lamenting that I will never get it, never! I’ve been feeling this way badly the last few days. I’d been kind of stuck for a while…partially due to being very busy, partially because my mental health … Read more

Sad, but true. 🙁 The last … Read more
I’ve always loved books. I learnt to read at the age of four, but my mother still has in her possession books that I devoured (some kind of literally, as evidenced by yellowed Scotch tape) at an even younger age.
