Twenty Sixteen

The first (and perhaps the only) post this year.

Yeah, I'm consistent like that :)

*cues Emoji with the shades*

Speaking of which, there's going to be an Emoji movie next year? Ughhh. Really? Yes, really. It's practically goodbye to creativity and originality, but I don't blame the producers for coming up with this. It's all because that's what the people want to see.  All movie producers do are to produce stuff that people wanna see. And yes, that's what the world is coming to. No surprise there.

Even from The Royals. The scene in S03E02 where both Len and Jasper exchange letters but instead found out that it was Hill that has been penning down those words. Hilarious, yes, but also sad, because that depicts the current social scenario - the slow and eventual death of the written speech and literature which is being replaced by uhm those tacky little icons and internet slangs.

Off to an event. Gtg.

See. Even I'm doing it.

Till the next one.

Writers, After Hours

I know that an entire chunk of my time on this Earth has not been documented here, and it's going to be a little hard to relate to what's going on given the colossal gap between my last post and this one, but still, just for light reading, give it a go alright.

Here's what my accidental group of friends are up to.

And yes, accidental. Long story short on how I met and grew to be fond of this bunch, I used to be scared silly of these gangsters and constantly got my ass whopped by this gang.

Have a look at what these fellas are up to. They are no JK Rowlings, nor are they A. Samad Said, but they'll show you their insights on what makes them writers, what gets them passionate about the trade, the ins and outs of the publishing business, and also a standing as a little guiding hand for people who are thinking of starting out, but unsure how to or where to.

And having said that, have I stressed how HARD it is to be a writer??

Here are some some reasons why. Click on the title below to see for yourself.

19 Fears That Plague All Writers

Having been part of the same scene, I was thinking, hey, I can contribute too. And hey, 3 months has already passed and I have not lifted a finger to come up with anything, not even a remote thought to get things going.

But today, I finally started. A tiny start, but still one I'm going to allow myself to be proud of! I wrote my writer's profile!

May this be an actual impetus for my thoughts and words to flow from me once more.

About the writer:

AJ went to teacher's college only to become a copywriter by accident. When she is not writing as part of her job obligations or emotional detox, she can be found giving in to the temptations of desserts, fan-girling over Nina Dobrev and deliberating on the meaning of life. You can read her neglected blog at or catch more of her frivolous eccentricity on Instagram under @aj_aeyjae_. 

Till the next one,

Give up your heart left broken
And let that mistake pass on
Cause the love that you lost
Wasn't worth what it cost
And in time you'll be glad it's gone

Note to self: must learn how to play this on the piano / must karaoke this.

When you feel like writing, and there's nothing that crosses your mind.

Me: All or Nothing

yes, you love me, then again what is it about me that you love? 

:: snapshot from an instagram caption of a dear friend of mine. more of his thoughts at ::

I'm soft,
I forgive easily, 
I let go of grudges,
I choose to remember only the good and kindness that people have extended to me,
I choose to ignore how others have hurt me.
so if you hate me for being able to let go and accept those who have wronged me, you don't even love me for who I am.

my flaws, whole and center, 
my past, then and there. 
make peace with them, 
put it behind,
else there's never going to be a moving forward.

love me,
love me, 
or not at all...

Almost Settling Down

My life went from almost settling down to all the uncertainty in the world.

And I hate uncertainty.
