Expressing Myself on the Blog…

…and also being loopy (with screenshots of solutions to some of the puzzles in the Android/iOS game Infinity Loop)

So I received an email from a visitor to the blog and this is the message that was sent. Continue reading

An Open Letter to Myself

Please… do not read… unless you can tolerate coarse language, references to self-abuse and suicide, depressing facts about the first-world childhood experience, and of course rambling rants. Continue reading

Let’s Talk About My Academic Record

I want to say that, for starters, I had talent in high school. I had a knack for most maths and science concepts, able to (kinda) teach others about it. But if I have to be frank…

It was all hard work very early on.

Lemme explain… Continue reading

Feeling the Lyrics – Two Evils (Bastille)

Here I am… listening to music. “Two Evils” by Bastille. Dark. Cruel. Soulful.

It’s a song which talks about whether the singer is the lesser of two evils, possibly referring to his opinion that he’s the better boyfriend candidate to this hypothetical crush, or whether he should be honest about his feelings. However, he experiences much discomfort in his current position, questioning whether he’s “tricking myself nice”, as well as challenging the “man” or rather “this act” he hides behind.

#failwhale (Happy New Year)

I feel bad, my dear reader.

A WHOLE MONTH without me saying “Happy New Year” to you.

I had clinical placement to make up for the one I failed at the beginning of 2017. It was very draining… many nights ended up me falling asleep at 8pm when I had finished at 5pm. Having to do that for seven weeks – with only Christmas week as an intermediary break – is pretty tough. ESPECIALLY OFF THE BACK OF A FIVE-WEEK PLACEMENT…

But I digress. Continue reading

My Christmas Date (and Duel?!) with The Fallen Angel

Yoshiko “Yohane” Tsushima – born July 13th, she is a first-year student at Uranohoshi Girls’ High School. She is one gifted in the art of chuunibyou, calling herself Yohane the Fallen Angel. Her legion of little demons is spread across the land of Japan, fallen under the siren-song that is called “music by Aqours“. Her demonic incantations can be seen in her live-streams as she battles to control the “Yoshiko Tsushima” – a mere mortal girl – that she has possessed.

Yohane!

This is the bizarre story of my Christmas date (and duel) with the fallen angel herself. Continue reading

Establishing a Meditation Habit

Inspiration Source: Establishing a Meditation Habit in 60 Seconds per Day (or Less!) from the official Habitica blog.

So… when you think of meditation, do you think of someone chanting the word “Ommm” every few seconds, sitting cross-legged in the Lotus position, your thumbs pressing your index fingers to make out a circle, and resting your hands on your lap?

Or do you imagine the Buddha, sitting upon an actual lotus flower, smiling with his eyes slightly open, with one hand in his lap and the other upright like half the hand gesture of a prayer? Continue reading

I Swear That I’m Alive!

Hahaha…. (sheepishly laughs). Hey, everyone…

Listen, long story short, I’m on clinical placement now, I had finished my exams roughly a month ago, and right now I’m just tired out of my brain. Continue reading

Recess Searching (Update)

When I searched myself up on Google a few days ago – via the terms “Teen Ramblings” – I read my description of the blog and felt a bit like I was putting up a facade.

This is the blog of a university student in Brisbane, Australia. He explores the recesses of his mind, in order to discover himself, through his ramblings.

Now that it’s been a year and a bit since I started this blog, I have realised just how much this supposed “outlet of emotion and thoughts” for me has now become a “hide all your feelings behind your creative mind” blog. I did ONE thing about mental health, but that got overwhelmed by all the artistic content. I wanted to drown out the serious talk with those posts. Continue reading
