My Journal & How I Keep Track of Goals

Monday, February 27, 2017

Hi lovelies

Today’s post is going to be quite personal and rather long. I thought I would share something with you that I spend a fair amount of time on: my journal.

One of the things I find most important, both for my personal well-being and in the big picture, is going through life in a purposeful way. For every activity I engage in and everything I spend time on, I like to be very clear on the point or the reason behind it, be it career advancement, personal development, skill development, or maintaining my physical or mental health.

Book Review #1: Milk And Honey by Rupi Kaur

Sunday, February 5, 2017

Hi lovelies 

For my first book review, I want to share a poetry collection called "Milk and Honey" by Rupi Kaur. She's a Canadian writer, poet and spoken word artist, she was born in India and she's my age. 

Let’s talk about failure.

There’s this common accusation that social media is harmful because we all retouch our lives so much on it. We only share the good, and then we compare our dreary day-to-day with other people’s highlight reels, and we feel less than. None of it is real.

From a whole different angle, there’s the perception that we don’t have a proper “culture of failing” in Austria or Europe, that if failure were more accepted like it is in Silicon Valley, people wouldn’t be so risk-averse and our economy would be much more innovative.

So let’s talk about failure.

I give up.

TW: This is not a happy post.

It recently occurred to me that the very first date of my life would have been roughly around 10 years ago, in February of 2007. I had met a boy online on a website called Netlog (yes, that was a thing back then) and he had agreed to pick me up from school. I walked through the gate that day and saw him sitting by the closest bus stop, with a notebook on his lap, drawing the clock that was standing on the square across the street. It was a very bad drawing, but I was 14 and the artistic type was cool back then.

8 things I learned in 2016

Monday, December 26, 2016

I believe humans are nothing if not works in progress. So I think how much you learn over the course of a year is a pretty good way of measuring how successful it was. I know 2016 was an absolute clusterfuck in terms of politics and the world as a whole, but for me, it actually went pretty well.
