Mommy Diaries : Qui vivra verra (time will tell).

Share a story about someone who had a positive impact on your life. Those who follow my blog know about my struggles with Attention Deficit Disorder and Dyslexia. You are also perhaps aware of how some people laugh at those with ADD and Dyslexia, often calling them lazy, morons, liars/untrustworthy, and even crazy. Due to […]

Mommy Diaries: Two years since….

I believe that one must not forget any pain that they have faced, inflicted by those they trusted and loved, opened up to – but I also believe that one must have the strength and courage to not hold a grudge. Catholic morals say forgive but some people are beyond being forgiven – that’s when […]

Day 146: #MaternalWall or Maternity Bias

Bias against mothers stems not only from assumptions about what mothers are like, but also from assumptions about how mothers should behave… leading to people deciding as “well wishers” if mothers are capable of handling a child and a responsibility. This is particularly problematic as many would indulge into this sort of gender bias without […]

Leadership: The Love Diary

Here’s a thought (for the week) that I strongly go by. I believe one should be a reflection of what they’d like to receive. I prize love, honesty and loyalty above all else – and hence I give to others what I want to receive. If you want to be taken seriously, learn to take […]

I usually spend my weekends with my boyfriend, or with my family – and/or – close/best friends (biking through backcountry, picnicking, movies, lazing around, hiking/long walks with heavy discussions, music festivals, long drives, and plain old bonding). This weekend I was at my boyfriend’s and we didn’t stay cocooned in […]

Dan-the-Man: *shaking his head and laughing* Me: Hey! C‘mon. It even rhymes with my other nickname Poppy! Dan-the-Man: Did you Google […]

I see my dog turning old, lose skin under her neck, I see her sleeping more and more, nodding off as she pretends to stay awake. I sit there talking to someone, a person who promises the world to me. I take my book and open a page – last poems I published about an […]

Day 74: Tough Day – The Single Woman’s Diary

Can’t even begin to say how tough today truly was. I have a perpetual headache from solving issues, and still so much more to do before the Zentralfest. Now, one might wonder what is the difference between a tough day and a rough day. Let me put it this way, today was full of obstacles, […]
