How is it that I’ve been on this Earth so long, and still I can’t shake this off? Worries about the same old things. Grey, tired, tormenting ideas. Isn’t it time to stop? Can’t I drop it all and start anew? Take a holiday somewhere nice from the cubicle of my mind. Because I need […]

Short-film version of an article I wrote a while ago on Medium. It’s called ‘The cure for an anxious, sucky life in less than 550 words.’ Here is that article: https://medium.com/personal-growth/the-cure-for-an-anxious-sucky-life-in-less-than-550-words-81898c821ebd All footage taken by the author in and around Tokyo, Kyoto, Japan, 2019.

I’ve been trying to bring more thirty-day challenges into my life. A month is a substantial chunk of time for developing a habit without being overwhelmed at the idea of doing something forever. I aim to make it fun, but a stretch. Over February of 2019, I embarked on a challenge to write a self-development […]

There is something in most people that annoys me. Today, lying by the pool, a group of guys playing loud music and cackling like donkeys annoyed me. People who spit on the streets here in Bangkok and act like they own the pavement annoy me. Loud groups of tourists who leave rubbish around annoy me. […]

I’ve been criticised for most of my life. Mostly, these centre around being ‘too quiet,’ ‘boring,’ ‘serious,’ ‘morose,’’sleepy,’’like I’ve just woken up,’and ‘angry.’ I’m pretty introverted, have slitty eyes, and it can look like I’m sleepy and grumpy a lot of the time.

Think for a second about why you don’t want to do things. When you have that thing you need to do or feel you should do… …but you just…can’t…do…it. What is at the heart of your saying no to it? Say someone calls you and invites you to speak on a panel in front of […]

Sometimes, I wish I were a tortoise. Or a horse. Or a lizard. To be human is to be cursed. No other creature can make a mistake,and turn it into a hundred. How silly. To put more into concealing my strangeness,than displaying my coloured wings. To work me up into a hot mess of nerves,Because […]
