On The Potter’s Wheel

This post is long overdue so I’ll jump right to it. I while back I got the chance to a potter’s wheel for the first time. I’ll just let these pictures speak for themselves… Notice the last pot that totally backfired? It taught me a lesson: Sometimes it’s good to slow down and enjoy the…

No One’s Perfect: 3 Times I was an A-Class B****!

In response to the Sarahah comments telling me I have a beautiful soul, here are a few moments I fell short. We were all a**holes when we were teenagers. Right? Or was it just me? Looking back I always wonder “Who the hell was this kid? Such a b****!” It’s almost like I was trying…

Starting Over: Can I Do This?

I am afraid. Very afraid. Taking on a road never before charted can feel daunting. What if I’m horrible at it? What if nobody likes it? I quit on so many other things, what if I cannot see it through. So many what ifs. So many people have done it though… followed their passion, started…

I Will Not Feel Guilty About Being an Introvert

The life of an introvert! Sure feels complicated sometimes. When I was younger, I tried so hard to be someone I wasn’t. I would try and be loud because all the other kids were loud. It surprised me every single time someone said, “You’re so quiet!” because in my head, I thought I looked like…

What’s Your Worth? Really?

How much would you like us to pay you? For those of you in your twenties, don’t you hate this question? I have always had a problem answering this question. We put so much effort into building our skills, bettering ourselves so we can deserve a better life even a better paycheck… and when that…

Rest In Peace, Natani

“By the way, have you heard? Natani is missing!” “Missing? What happened?” “He came to the office on Thursday, left at 10, then…” Something interrupted the conversation. I don’t remember what. We were in the middle of a meeting when Rachel started telling me what happened, but something interrupted. We went on with the meeting….

Podcast Spotlight – What Is True about Why We Work?

Food for Thought, Why do we work, Really? Is it because we have an innate need to do so? Or is the need to work a construct of our minds that does not really exist? What does it take to find purpose and meaning in what you do for a living? Do we always work…

A Little Bird In A Small World

I finally started painting again!! No words can describe how therapeutic it was! Note that this is an imitation of a painting I saw online. I hope to one day gain the confidence and skill to create something entirely on my own. But you know what they say… “Good artists copy… Great artists steal”. So let’s just say I’m a good artist… Not for long though!
