But you carry with you a blueprint, a hint that your history will always be with you, that you were your parents’ breakthrough.
Your blood will be the crazy glue that keeps you together on the eventual day when you must stand alone.

You would think that I had trekked to outer space with the amount of silence on the interwebs that I delivered since my last blog. And there abouts, I had. I first started writing this blog a week back, but was then tunnelled back into the hectic schedule that is university life.

Edit: Turns out, Chynna is the victim of my crime! Everything is slowly getting sorted for my move to London, which is only a few weeks away now....


Pressure Point

As I walked into my old school library, my whole function turned to automatic, calculating the shortest route to the desk without meeting human contact. We kept the small talk small and I received my envelope in an increasingly violent, shaking hand. I passed some friends without saying hello in fear of drowning in a conversation of terror about what demons lied await for me under the glued flap. Inside, in the form of some Serif lettering, was the judgement of my future. And this was the moment where I would destroy the raising tension with a sharp rip and...
