Last two weeks ago, I found out my current body weight and the result made me so frustrated because I didn’t gain that much in the last 5 years.

I’ve never been in so many relationships in the past but just listening to other people’s love stories made me believe that there’s really a person who is meant to each of us.

I hate talking about politics and religions because I’m aware that everyone has something to say and willing to end up with arguments about it.

Dating someone who is near me isn’t my type. Maybe because I’m the kind of person who loves her own space and doesn’t want to have someone to look after her.

Bad things … Continue reading Why Does It Hurt Losing Someone You Love?
Being envious of other people’s success can be draining to oneself. We tend to lose our focus on what we like to do, shift to others’ achievements and try to reach them and worst, be like them.

A couple of days ago, I asked a random question to my Mom while we were eating dinner, which I do most of the time.

Figuring things out all by myself isn’t easy and I know, most of us are afraid of the unknown. However, that’s where the thrill exists.

I mentioned in my post before that I’m keeping a journal and the reasons behind it. I’m the kind of person who wants to make sure that everything that I do will contribute to my future.
