I haven’t written here in a while, because I’ve been focusing my writing energy into my novel. However, I don’t want to give up this blog completely so what better way to start again than to write about the topic you can’t escape from these days…[Read more…]
A woman in her 30s, that’s what I am now.
And actually, I do feel my age. It took a while to come to terms with, but I no longer wish to be still in my 20s. I had a slight crisis when I was 29, fearing the new decade, but I’m glad I managed to get over it and now embrace it.[Read more…]

The eve of my 31st birthday seems the perfect time to just get these words out there. How I feel about these things as a 30 year old. It’s interesting to see how my views have changed in the past few years and I am curious as to how they will evolve in the future.[Read more…]
