Dead people, dying people.
I held my hand bag tightly to my chest, kept my head down, and strode as fast I could through the dark and somber alley. Melancholy, despair and rage filled the air. 'Screw those filthy bastards!' a hoarse voice startled me. I kept my head down. 'Keep going...

We are engaged!
As little children, we dreamt about the day when we would become that policeman, teacher or chef that we have always aspired to be. We played make believe with our childhood playmates, walking down that imaginary aisle in our 'wedding gowns and suits'. We p...

It's not easy to not give a damn

Not wilful but strong-willed
2018. The first few days of the year are always so surreal. The four numbers seem so foreign, like a distant vision of the future. And yet, it is the present. A year ago, just before 2016 came to a close, I wrote a letter to myself a year from then. As I re...

Myers-Brigg couldn't diagnose my Mr Hyde
Just a couple of week ago, I asked my boyfriend who majors in Psychology if he thinks I might have a split personality. "You? Of course not," was his prompt reply. I read the classic, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde  by Robert Louis Stevenson ,   last...

Military training through a woman's eyes
When I was a child, the girls in my neighborhood would bring their Barbie dolls to each other’s homes to play dress up. I would stay at home with my little brother to play Hot Wheels and  Beyblades . When I was a teenager, my girlfriends would babble all da...
