Let’s Talk about “Gay Marriage”

For the record, I’m neither gay nor am I married. Second, I add the phrase “gay marriage” in inverted commas because I don’t even see how a “gay” marriage is any different to a “regular” marriage between two “heterosexual” people. As far as I know, marriage is a union of love, gay or otherwise. Or one of convenience, if Jane Austen was bae. Third, I’m … Continue reading Let’s Talk about “Gay Marriage”

Let’s Talk about Failed Writing – II

You see, writing “well” for me was never easy. I always wrote, even as a child (since when I could actually start writing that is) but it wasn’t about being any good at it, but more so as a practice of documentation and now in retrospect (as an adult, lol), to keep at it. Because like the electronic organ that I used to play (for … Continue reading Let’s Talk about Failed Writing – II

Let’s Talk about Prostitutes

A lot of people have already begun talking about it and clearly this post will not necessarily make a difference, but there are rants in my head that need to be written somewhere and if you don’t feel like reading it, no worries! This is totes obvs with reference to the piece of shit writing on The Sunday Leader yesterday, which was shared by the … Continue reading Let’s Talk about Prostitutes

Let’s Talk about Failed Writing – I

See the notion that comes from “Working from Home” is the supposed abundance of free time. Well, yes and no. Yes, because you are at home, supposedly chilling in your pyjamas (unlike YouTubers who have morning routines where they get about their day at home with a full face of makeup, the furthest I’d go would be to have a shower, breakfast and wear more home-clothes) … Continue reading Let’s Talk about Failed Writing – I

Let’s Talk about the English Language – Part I

Before I launch into an ultimate rant, let me just put out a few disclaimers for all we care: Yes, I’m aware that I speak in English than Sinhala when given the opportunity; I’m also aware that my blog posts are entirely in English; and finally, despite it not being my first language or “native” tongue, I’m quite aware on how better I think, write and … Continue reading Let’s Talk about the English Language – Part I

What They Don’t Tell You about Working from Home

For most of (what I will reveal through this post) the part, I work from home. Or not “home” in its traditional sense, but let’s just reword it to, “alternate workspace”, because I more often than not sit occasionally at “workspaces” mercilessly hogging their wifi or grace a series of coffee shops. Very rarely do I now work from “home” as we know it, as there are one too many meetings happening in the “City” #SuburbanGirl and the house was in need of a chauffeur. I volunteered for the latter as this not only helped me cut down my travel costs but also helped me ensure the money saved was spent on exorbitantly priced coffee.
