2 months ago, for day 57 by Asia 💎

Sometimes when I need a spark to help me figure out what to write, I will revisit my archives from my previous WordPress blogs. My blog existed in several versions across multiple domains, and so I have quite a few archives to revisit. I never made a habit of merging...


Prolificness

2 months ago, for day 56 by Asia 💎

In 2014, I lucked out big time. A meetup I went to, Designers + Geeks, held a contest to attract students for a full scholarship to the inaugural UX and Front-End Development course at a bootcamp named Metis. As an alumna of General Assembly's first UX Design Immersive course, I...


Sunday Blues

2 months ago, for day 55 by Asia 💎

Well, I was wondering when they would show up. That new gig glow sure does wear off quickly! I call these the Sunday Blues, this latent sense of despair that Monday, the commute, and work, is coming. It's especially intense after a long weekend and a short week after a...


Burnout

2 months ago, for day 54 by Asia 💎

Last week was such a short week, so why do I feel so exhausted? I think I simply did too much. I can tell by the number of uncooked meals in my fridge. I can tell by the chores that remain unfinished. I can tell by the complete and utter...


Revolution

2 months ago, for day 53 by Asia 💎

I intended to finish yesterday's piece tonight but I'm a different kind of tired tonight and not feeling at all funny. It's a good tired, after spending some time with good friends. My friend plans biweekly gatherings at the Chinatown Fair Video Arcade. It's a small place with the typical...


Requited, Part 1

2 months ago, for day 52 by Asia 💎

I used to wonder if guys and gals could be friends. In elementary school, I didn't really think much of boys. They were rough and ran around too much, so I generally avoided them. I liked my boy cousins ok, but that was because they were cool and older than...


Sleepytime

2 months ago, for day 51 by Asia 💎

It hasn't been quite another week yet, but I present to you, yet another post about how tired I am! I was hoping that writing about the issue would help nudge me in the right direction, but unfortunately, it hasn't worked out that way. I think I've spent more words...


Novella No. 14

3 months ago, for day 50 by Asia 💎

As mentioned in my post "Impromptu", I went to a writing community event tonight with Novella NYC. I thought I'd take this space to memorialize my experience at the event. Around 7PM, we crammed into Lively's storefront. Upon my arrival, I was given a slip of paper with author's name...


Intent

I thought I'd follow you anywhere. But then I found I couldn't stay the path. It was littered with puddles, cracks, and sinkholes, The road tapering off to dead ends, Meandering to nowhere. But you never seemed to mind. "Spontaneity," you called it. There was a charm to it. For...


Impromptu

3 months ago, for day 48 by Asia 💎

In just a few days, I'm going to attend an event run by organization called Novella, which describes itself as "A Writing Club & Storytelling Salon For All Women." The community came to my attention in April of last year, but their salons were so popular that I routinely failed...
