Lucky Basta**s!

I do not envy anyone, not anymore, not after junior college. I am content with all I have or don’t have. I am willing to work hard to accomplish what I want so there is no reason to envy. But lately, I have started feeling envious of some writers who have the power to express freely. I […]

Shopping Ban

Ban…

  Every other year I impose a shopping ban on myself. So I do not shop for even a hairpin in that year (I am obviously not talking about the essentials – such as groceries). The max I have gone with the ban is 3 years straight. I must tell you it is quite challenging, […]
