If you’d thought I’d perished, fear not, for phoenixes rise from the ashes, and I from my bedroom once in a blue moon. What can I say? This sedentary state of mind and body takes its toll. But before I start quoting Confucius and reading palms I’ll adopt a more grounded tone of voice.  SoContinue reading “Why Haven’t I Written Anything In 4 Months?”

‘Tis The Season To Be (Un)Motivated

I’m Motivated At Being Unmotivated

I’ve become really unmotivated lately. I find sticking to schedules more painful than the thought of chewing shards of bottlegreen glass as if they were cornershop penny chews.    Working remotely at my 9 to 5 is doable, but it’s the goals I have outside of this (as we all have) which I feel completelyContinue reading “I’m Motivated At Being Unmotivated”

Poem: Rejection

Stinging like the barb of a hornet, Heckles on my neck, shocked, stand upright. I’m in disbelief.   Stormy skies swirl above me, My mind, clouded with an overcast of doubt.

Why I Wish I Was Multilingual

As an avid fan of Reggaeton I find myself desperately attempting to sing along to the lyrics of ‘Con Altura’ by Rosalia, J Balvin and El Guincho.
