One of my favourite things to do when sitting on a train is staring out the window at the world going by with my favourite music playing, imagining I’m the main character in an edgy music video. Apparently, I am following a trend here: #maincharacterenergy. Recently, scrolling through my social…


I recently came across a question that I couldn’t stop thinking about: which do you value more, routine and security, or novelty and adventure? In a world that obsesses over morning routines and adventure in the same measure, what is it we crave more?

I wake up at the same…


I’m very bad at small talk. I am awkward and a little shy, a bad combination for casual conversation. A typical small talk question I often struggle to answer is where my hometown is.

The idea of home is a complicated one. Is it where we’re from, or where we…


I love sending my friends voice notes. Partly because I’m obsessed with hearing myself talk, but also because it usually brings up thoughts that wouldn’t have come up in a normal conversation (mostly because nobody would have the patience to let me ramble for five minutes).

I have been trying to read as many of the books longlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction as I possibly can (considering I’m only one person). …


For okonomiyaki, you’ll need flour, an egg, stock, a potato and your chosen seafood. I used king prawns.

Today’s recipe is from Memorial by Bryan Washington. The book follows Benson and Mike, who are in a relationship that is starting to fall apart. In the middle of all of this…
