For as long as I can remember, I’ve struggled with sharing my personal experiences on the internet. One thing I especially don’t like to discuss is my relationships because it’s a sensitive subject. I don’t like to talk about who I’m dating with anyone, but in due course, I’ve come to realize the essence of talking about one’s feelings.

At a young age, I witnessed people struggle so much in their relationships that I disdained men. I told myself that when I was old enough to be in a relationship, it had to be with someone who genuinely loved me…

Earlier this year, I wrote an article on how I was dealing with anxiety because I was in a bad place at the time. The little things got to me; I cried a lot, worried about things I couldn’t control, and I was barely eating well. My closest friend and I weren’t on good terms and it hurt me more than I thought it would. The whole period of quarantine made me feel like my life had no direction, and instead of talking to someone about my feelings, I bottled them up and cried whenever I reached a breaking point.

Like most people, my choice of songs is typically based on my mood. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been into pop, alternative, contemporary R&B, and gospel. I enjoy long conversations with friends about the type of music I listen to. Back in high school, I used to call some friends just to listen to a particular song I was into at the time. Although these days, it’s hard to find the time and friends that listen to my type of music, but when I do, I go all-in with my favorites.

During the first few months…

I remembered walking into the bookstore and randomly picking a book, while silently praying it was good. Amazingly, it was better than I’d hoped and after completion of the book, I desperately wanted…

How have you been handling working from home, and at the same time, trying to stay involved in other activities? Honestly, it’s been quite challenging for me, having to adjust to the new state of things and also reorganize my plans for the year. Each day is different for me; I follow my to-do list on some, and on others, I just go with the flow.

One of the many ways I’ve been able to entertain myself while in quarantine is by binge-watching TV series. As much as I’m excited about my newly formed hobby; reading, I still take time…
