Shy Problems or Social Anxiety Problems? 😳

I was a reasonably shy kid. Although I have spoken about my social anxiety struggles on this blog, the one thing I am sure of is that shyness is not the same as social anxiety, although they can be interrelated. I am no expert on the scientific findings of these two things, so instead I…… Continue reading Shy Problems or Social Anxiety Problems? 😳

Relics in My Room

I was feeling a bit down today, so I decided to blog about a fun and silly topic. I have many little trinkets and items that are essentially relics from my younger years. It’s amazing the stuff I dug up after rifling through cabinets and drawers, though some of the things I am sharing are…… Continue reading Relics in My Room

Unfriending & Browsing Old Messages

Today, I am considering blocking and deleting someone so I’m no longer in contact with him/her. This is a person I’ve been friends with for at least 2 years. Lately we have not seen eye to eye on certain things and it’s partially my fault. Regardless of my reasons for wanting to let go of…… Continue reading Unfriending & Browsing Old Messages

Looking Back on Old Diaries (Part 1)

I recently read other bloggers reflect in their posts about sifting through their old diary or their journal entries. This had me itching to revisit my own written words too. It’s funny how my memory can be faulty about my own past. I remember a lot of heartache and pain, but I didn’t expect to…… Continue reading Looking Back on Old Diaries (Part 1)

Humiliating Memories

I can feel myself mentally shriveling into a corner every time my brain inadvertently replays an abominable memory that I wanted to never think about again. The clarity and sharpness of my memory recall gets to me. Why is it always the painful ones I remember so well? I am taken back to the bubble…… Continue reading Humiliating Memories

My Music Tastes

My taste in music is very much all over the place. I went through various “phases” in life with liking one genre before my interests changed to another genre. I truly didn’t mean for this post to turn into a giant novel going over my earliest music interests to present-day, but I got carried away…… Continue reading My Music Tastes

Watching Television Shows

My earliest memories of watching television was at a time I was having a weird transition in grammar school and learning English. I am native to New York (born and raised), however, at home, my parents spoke to me in mostly Mandarin Chinese so my understanding of English was very sparse in kindergarten and first…… Continue reading Watching Television Shows

A Special Piece of Jewelry

It has been a while since I’ve worn a piece of jewelry. I sometimes wear a pair of earrings once in a blue moon, but typically I forget to put any jewelry at all if I am going out. As a young girl, I wore multiple bracelets on my wrists. It was never a matter…… Continue reading A Special Piece of Jewelry
