Since we’re both single and roughly the same age, it was hard for me not to treat our interview as a sort of date. Surprisingly, Chris did the same, asking all about me, my family, my job, my most recent relationship. And from ten minutes into that first interview, when he reached across the table to punctuate a joke by putting his hand on top of mine, Chris kept up frequent hand holding and lower-back touching, palm kissing and knee squeezing. He’s an attractive movie star, no complaints. I also didn’t know how much I was supposed to respond; when I did, it sometimes felt a little like hitting on the bartender or misconstruing the bartender’s professional fliirting for something more. I wanted to think it was genuine, or that part of it was, because I liked him right away.

Is this the part of a celebrity profile where I go into how blue the star’s eyes are? Because they are very blue.

This interview is blowing up today, I am definitely not mad at that.

Don’t fool yourself. English isn’t inherently superior, or easier to learn, or more sonically pleasing. Its international usage comes from forceful assimilation and legacy of colonialistic injection. It isn’t a deed that one should take pride in.

A little table to how to get rid of all that negative self-talk. We have to learn look at the good in situations too, instead of dwelling on things we can’t change - because you know what? We may not be able to change what is happening but we CAN change how we view it!

How About We CATstrate You?

My family didn’t grew up exposed to animals… unless you count the rat that played amongst my and my brother’s toys in the storeroom of our childhood flat. We had fighting fishes we called Fang and Fluffy when I was a teenager, but that ordeal faded out quickly since, well, fish doesn’t last very long as a pet, and keeping them was for the sheer pleasure of calling them ‘Fang’ and ‘Fluffy’.

I’ve always emphasised my hatred for cats, or rather my annoyance, and possibly my complete nonchalance. I think this is because I find it hard to process that some animals can be snobbier than I can be.

Much has been going on in the virtual world lately.

While we have a lot of positivity brewing thanks to social media campaigns like #100happydays and whatnot, these seem to be balanced out by the sightings of the totally opposite side of the spectrum namely negativity.

Because for everything reaction, there is an equal and opposite reaction, according to Mr. Newton.

But where negativity is only a human reaction, the breeding of ignorance is something that is getting to my very nerve.
