Coconut oil

I tried out a sample of coconut oil (extra virgin) on my hair. I got the details on how to online. So… I washed my hair and it’s super oily like. Blow drying didn’t dry my hair. Oh, it’s definitely shinier and smoother looking. But… The oily looking & feeling of it is going to drive me nuts. Guess it doesn’t work for me on weekdays.  ğŸ˜’

Days go by


It sometimes comes as a surprise and grows to an extent beyond recognition. Much like this unexpected plant, a lot things have happened without my knowledge of what would become of it. People tend to hide their doubts and fears behind the phrase ‘You’ll be okay’ or ‘ it will all work out’. But no one really know for sure. Sometimes you get tired and just want to live simply without caring about others. Just yourself. In complete selfishness. 

How do you respond when someone close to you tells you that you’re useless every time you don’t obey them? 

Obedience is … an annoyance. 

When love is not enough

I don’t think I would have understood it as a child. Some things in life still can’t be fixed with love even though many would argue that it’s the most powerful thing in the world. But why is it that money runs the world ? 

Dream chasing is tiring. 

Almost perfect 


It was again another beautiful night by the water. I felt better after getting in some cardio workout. It’s really true that everyone on Facebook is pretty much getting married ; those of us of the same age of course. I feel that I have the perfect relationship with my perfect special someone but unfortunately we’re both stuck in our stage of trying to become financially independent. So we can’t move forward. For me, it’s rather difficult to describe what holds me back. It’s more complicated than it seems. Even if I want to leave home to find work else where, I risk not having a home to go back to and for the same reason my parents wouldn’t let me leave. It’s still quite difficult to find work as well. :/ Sighs. What does it take to be on my own? 

Small detour

Just a few days ago, I decided to take the Z train for the first time ever since high school to get to my destination. It was weird Bc it is such an empty train and the old style of it. I went through the Fulton center to get to it. Haven’t really been inside the new building so I took a snap shot of it. 🙂 Very cool ceiling glass. 


I came across this really neat building at canal street the other day. I feel like the painting on the wall has changed a few times now. It’s really pretty. 


It was also around this time around that I decided to be kind and gave a homeless man a banana I had and also got him two bottles of blue gatorade b/c it was near dangerously hot temperature. What I got out of it was asked to speak to him for a bit while he was partially high on something he was smoking and weirded out by things he said to me along the line of marrying him and wanted me to shake his hands. I think I was more uncomfortable with the way he looked at me up and down. Towards the end he asked me to come by and see him every now and then. 

I like to help but I don’t like to stop and talk. 

A small conversation 

Today I spoke with my mom about the impact plastic is having on the natural world. She was very willing to listen and understood the impact we as humans are leaving behind and on poor animals on land and water. This is interesting because I’ve never brought up this issue before and it’s not always so obvious when you can’t read or write like my mother. It reminds me again the responsibility and importance of educating those who are unaware of these different issues. I’m proud of my mom.
