Tonight's The Night, Dexter.


Yesterday, I watched the finale of Dexter, a television series that I have been fixated with. Upon watching the finale, I was left extremely heartbroken and I was unable to think about anything but the travesty of this episode. I woke up this morning experiencing an intense sense of sadness over the finale and although I reminded myself that it was only a television show and nothing to be upset about, I could not stop thinking about it. I began to wonder how a television show could cause me such sadness and how it could affect me to the point that it was dictating my emotions.

Forbrydelsen (The Killing).


For the past few weeks, I have forgotten about life and engrossed myself in Forbrydelsen (The Killing), a Danish crime series. Although it has been a while since I watched the final episode, I am still reeling from the immaculacy of the show. Forbrydelsen deserves a standing ovation for its brilliance.

Why I Write.


In the words of Lord Byron ‘if I don’t write to empty my mind, I go mad.’ Writing keeps me sane; it is a form of liberation. It has become a way of life. There are moments when I cannot recall my thoughts with my tongue; it is the pen that speaks for me. Sometimes the pen has a mind of its own, using my thoughts as energy, writing things that I didn’t know I was feeling. Writing has become an obligation, like breathing. It has become a part of me, like skin.

Limitations of the English Language.


The sound of heavy laughter filled the carriage; it was coming from a woman. There was something peculiar about the way that she laughed. It was profound. With every moment, the laughter traversed through her, emanating sorrow as if
 her only way to heal. She was laughing through melancholy, through pain; this laughter was surfacing from the abyss of her skin. I pondered but realised that I could not locate the words to depict the sound that I was hearing.

Myers-Briggs Personality Test.


Yesterday, I was introduced to the Myers-Briggs personality test and the results have honestly been revolutionary. The test is straightforward and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. It then derives your personality type.
