TV Series Review: You

I never expected Netflix would drop so many chilling thrillers around the Christmas season, but since I’m a huge fan of the genre, I say: the more, the merrier. “You” is the story of boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl and woes her, and girl eventually falls in love with boy. Except that in this case, the […]

Movie Review: Bird Box

If you’ve been anywhere near the internet for the past few weeks, then you’ve no doubt come across “Bird Box”, the new Netflix thriller featuring Sandra Bullock. It’s an internet sensation, and has even stirred a new challenge for people to go outside blindfolded and try to find their way in the dark, something I heavily do not recommend and […]

My Bullet Journal

I like to get organized. I like the feel of having a neat calendar or agenda where I can keep track of everything, or even a journal for that matter, or a task or to do list. I love scratching off items from a to do list. The only problem? I can get organized…for a while. I always tend to […]

TV Series Review: Perfume

“Perfume” is a strange series to release just around the holidays. Christmas holidays makes you long for fluffy, warm, feel-good series, and “Perfume” is anything but warm and fluffy, or feel-good. In fact, it’s quite the opposite: cold, chilling, and with the uncanny ability to create an acute sense of unease for anyone viewing it. Nadja Simon is a female […]

Monthly Goals January 2019

I think I’m cursed that whenever I set myself some goals, I tend to stick to it for like a month… And then I fail utterly. Same as with this series of blog posts, each year I start again with good intentions… And then I fail utterly. But I keep on trying, and maybe, just maybe, 2019 will be the […]

Yearly Goals 2019

Rather than refer to these as “New Year’s Resolutions”, as I did for the previous years (check here my goals for 2016, 2017 and 2018) this year I’m going to refer to these as my yearly goals for the year. So rather than my writing resolutions for next year, here is my list of goals ofr next year. Draft one […]
