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”

December Diaries: Giving Thanks to 2016

Where do I even start. I actually just took a break from writing to scroll through my Instagram that I believe has some of my key highlights and also because scrolling through my planner right now doesn’t sound too appealing. psht. A lot of bad things has happened this year, the most significant of which is the flood that will probably be engraved in one … Continue reading December Diaries: Giving Thanks to 2016

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

Why I Want to Write about Financing (or “Budgeting” predominantly)

If I start to count the number of videos I watched before starting this post, trust me I would’ve failed having tried to keep track of em. As far as most writers go, I am pretty Jon Snow when it comes to financing. The most I would’ve gotten as far as financing goes would be that o/level commerce class and a/level accounts option weirdly paired … Continue reading Why I Want to Write about Financing (or “Budgeting” predominantly)

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

Let’s Talk Floods – Part IV

It’s been nearly three weeks two weeks and four days after those terrible floods and landslides. By the time you read this, most likely on Monday or something, it might even be three. The “big rains” have now ceased and the monsoons have taken over. People have moved on in life, Muhammad Ali died at the age of 74, an armoury blew up some place … Continue reading Let’s Talk Floods – Part IV
