The internet is an invisible station where everyone is a resident of the same ark, connected through wires and grids across the globe. This digital spacecraft we submerged ourselves into, while seemingly practical and easy, is starting to feel and smell like a threat to me. In this digital chamber where billions of people and strangers are united by a single power line, the secret code used to bypass our individuality is stamped on what we say online. Our vocal mind is more than just an expression — it is a weapon, a weapon that can be used against us.
It's that time of the month again! No, not aunt flow — I am way passed that. I am referring to this month's favorites, which I am this close to forgetting by the way. The month of April has been such a massive low ride for me and it really is quite difficult to figure out what my April favorites are, what's with all the drama that's been going on in my family and life. Needless to say, I managed to spot certain things to share with you today.
Earlier this afternoon aunt flow and its bunch of annoying nieces decided to attack my head and mood when I was out and about to get some things from the drugstore. The heat also made things so much worse as I turned into Cruella de vil once I got home. I then decided to clear some space as a distraction, a quick declutter if you will.

A few days ago, my friend and I had a brief conversation regarding trends surrounding internet, particularly on social media like Instagram, where selfies are hash-tagged and 'no filter' is a thing. One of our common dislike is addressed towards the oh-so-famous "Instagram eyebrows" which is something both of us will never understand. That conversation has since then inspired me to think about other internet trends we see today, trends that I just cannot compute.
I wish I live in a country with seasons so I can experience what spring feels like and maybe, if I were to experience it and find the first blooming flower, I'd feel slightly better. I need to feel at least the slightest bit better so I can, you know, function and be more capable of making a decision. This week has been filled with emotional exhaustion, lots of feeling down and left out. As I'm typing this, I'm struggling to update my blog because I feel like it deserves a proper update despite my condition.
