I will say, it takes immense honesty for me to write about this because I’ll be admitting to my own weaknesses when it comes to loving. You might be wondering, “how can love be associated with weakness?” Well, I’ve had to learn the hard way that you need to be extremely strong and vigilant in order to survive the ways people will manipulate your love for them. It happens more often than you think; with […]

A couple of weeks ago I had the great displeasure of having to place my beloved site into Maintenance Mode, and if you’ve been following my work so far, you might have been wondering WHY all of a sudden? Well, yours truly is a very picky man and when I was originally scouring WordPress‘ inventory for themes to build off of at the beginning of the year, I happened to go with one that really […]

Something peculiar happened this past week and I’ve been thinking about it consistently ever since. As much as I’d like to say I’ve come here to share and bestow knowledge with the masses, I equally think I’m here to remind myself of just how big life is. While not only is life such an enormous concept, the world itself is so small too! You know, Toronto may be heavily overpopulated (just my opinion), but for […]

I caught your attention, right? I might be playing with fire here (in fact, I’m almost certain that I am), so if you see me disappear without a trace tomorrow, please remember me by using the Wayback Machine. The truth is that these days I feel very revved up and filled with passion, which I think is a shared sentiment in the world right now. We were already experiencing the height of our emotions because […]

I’ve been mulling over what to write about next and then I realized I should acknowledge that today is my Birthday. I’m not one to be overly-excited about celebrating and making big plans, and especially now given that we’re still very-much living through a global pandemic here. There isn’t much one can do at this point and I’m not really one for video chats or digital meetups. With that being said, if it means spending […]

It’s been a hot minute since my last post, mostly because I’ve been overdosing on television and video games in my spare time (so nothing truly productive if you ask my parents). I bring up the ‘rents because my topic of discussion for today really hits home when it comes to growing up with immigrant parents and all of the strange expectations tied to it. More specifically, what it’s like growing up in a ‘brown’ […]

No doubt, we’re living during a very scary time right now. Scary is the biggest word that comes to mind, but there’s also uncertainty, frustration, worry, stress, anger, and many more loaded emotions behind COVID-19. I don’t think anyone is an expert on this topic; I certainly never thought I would live through something like this in my lifetime. However, the fact that no one person is perfectly prepared for this pandemic shows that we […]

If you ask me, there is a large misconception that exists surrounding saying ‘no’ to someone or to something. That misconception branches into a few different thought processes that many of us feel or have felt before: “If I say no, I will hurt their feelings.” “If I say no, they will feel disappointed in me.”“If I say no, it will look shameful.”“If I say no, they will hold it against me.”“If I say no, […]

I never, ever, EVER thought I would be writing about this. It feels like just yesterday it was the early 2000s and there was literally no hope of seeing Sailor Moon ever appear in North America again. For those who have been at this as long as I have (which is over 25 years now), you may remember back when the license to Sailor Moon was due to expire and ended-up being revoked pretty much […]

In one line, Iโ€™d say 2019 was a very bittersweet year for me. I would like to say that it was all rainbows and unicorns, but I havenโ€™t quite reached that kind of place just yet. In the past, my normal go-to type of writing piece would have involved me lamenting over the things that fell into that bitter category, but itโ€™s a new year, and on an almost clichรฉ note, it really is a […]
