June 9, 2020

As David Foster Wallace explained, a fish does not know it is in water. In fact, he might even ask what water is, if you told him he was in it. Yes, we have all these things around us, but we often do not recognize it or how impactful it is.  As I am nearing...

Inner self

May 31, 2020

29/08/19This isn't how I thought that I would be starting off with my first real blog.

It’s here…

May 31, 2020

15-08-19It's finally here. I'll be leaving soon. I've got quite a few goals that I wish to accomplish. Even though they tell us to come without any expectations…I can't.
