What do people genuinely look for when finding “the one” in a relationship? It’s hard to tell because people build their own perceptions of what a soulmate should look like from past experiences or the experiences of others.

In consistent conversations with friends regarding relationships, one piece of advice that seems to be unanimous is taking time. Time looks so different in every situation. It’s important to see what time looks and feels like for the partner you’re with. If time is being wasted, then what was the … Continue reading What do people genuinely look for when finding “the one” in a relationship?

What does is that duality is the certainty of the uncertain. It’s about living with two forces, both good and evil, that make us human.

Are you in the same form as you once were? Something’s different about … Continue reading Duality
I have been in deep reflection about the ups and downs of what 2016 has come with. The ups were extremely high; I was feeling like everything I have worked for is beginning to make sense. Finishing school and moving on to graduate school was thrilling for me. It was also nerve wrecking because I would be surrounded by tough and buff academic powerhouses.

For any student, we have to remind ourselves that … Continue reading 2017: Reflect and Evolve 👍
