so make living worthwhile
the title is clickbait because i don’t know the answer myself either but here’s a thought for your daily bread
for quite some time, years even, i largely remained a cynic towards social interactions mainly because it takes a lot of energy to actively engage and pretend to care about the issues at hand.
this is probably because of my underlying fear of being judged (i.e. accidentally being politically incorrect, etc) and the amount of brain juice needed to think on what to say next. this to me is very tiring.
earlier this week, the trajectory…
The idealism in politician speeches cannot break down historical patriarchy. But porn can.
[This is part of my Debate Series — topics curated from local and global debate competitions I participated in. P.S I included my rankings of this motion at the end of this blog :)]
Since the late 1970s, the feminist movement has splintered over a range of sex related issues in an attempt to combat the dominant conservatism values (ie women should fulfil their familial duties) and standards (ie exploring one’s sexuality is not an option, etc).
Despite the dominance of conservatism, pornography also reigned to be…
Are there any circumstances that will make it acceptable to do so?
Littledean Jail is a small museum based in the UK that is widely known for its (seemingly) politically incorrect, and bizarre visitor attraction.
Andy Jones, the collector who owns Littledean Jail, enjoys subjects that touch upon the holocaust, Klu Klux Klan, fascism in Britain, and celebrity scandals which are clear through his collection in the museum.

My lungs were violently gasping for air, my skin incarcerated the heat waves and my legs placed itself one in front of the other in a constant, circular motion. I was finishing up a thirty five kilometre hike, running past the towering trees and away from the two thousand metre climb behind me.
The unbearable heat and hammered fibres that compose of my body wasn’t actually a big deal. I was happy swiftly darting through the hikers since the annihilating thirst for a soothing ice chilled coke trumped larger than my unacknowledged fatigued. While I did try my best to…
My life revolves around screens and spaces — too much of the former, and not enough of the latter. Of course, this isn’t a new phenomenon to my life, nor is it specific to myself either but still, the heuristic interjection of an idea and a story that writes itself is a transliteration process that rarely occurs. In other words, it’s been hard trying to write an article everyday.
So far I mused about Markov Chains, found the elusive satisfaction of writing with proper capitalisation, realised the insanity of living unmedicated, cried about mathematics, and contemplated the finality of age.
I missed 10 days
At the start of April, I set out to blog everyday and since the month has ended I’m happy to report I’ve posted 20 articles. I skipped writing for 10 days and while BEDA wasn’t necessarily a success by this virtue, it’s still a win. It’s a major improvement from my try at the Renaissance Project, in which my longest streak was four days. So, I’m overall pleased I suppose.
I am a very mainstream person. In whatever social group, I try my best to fit in. Whether it’s religiously watching high school romcoms at 3AM with a tub of ice cream scrunched under a blanket or getting ketchup on my RBG keyboard as I play league of legends with friends over Discord or listening to Daniel Caesar whenever I’m sad. It’s difficult to pick me out from a crowd since I look like every other average person.
Regardless, this has led me to take social standards as a normal thing to adhere to since a kid and never once…
