To My Sister, On Her Wedding Day.

November 20, 2017
I attended my sister’s beautiful wedding last month in Maryland. I was supposed to be one of the bridesmaids but I decided against it, anything about formal affairs just isn’t for me. Hate is a strong word but it’s the best description of how I feel about formal affairs – family or not.

It’s been more than a month since my last post and I think it’s the longest that I haven’t updated this blog since I started it. I went on a holiday in the US and unlike any other holidays that I’ve taken in the past, my blog wasn’t involved in any part of it. No sponsorship nor complimentary services in exchange of a blog post or a social media update. For the first time in years, I t

When I go home from work, I’m torn between spending tim

Yeah, I tell people that I’m excited but I’ve never really felt it, not just yet. You know that feeling of excitement when your intestines are doing somersaults which would make you

Am I Unhappy?

June 30, 2016
Athens, Greece PinayFlyingHigh.com-7
I looked out the window of our very small hotel room. I’ve never really noticed the size of our room until I had to skip over our luggage on the floor and move some chairs aside to get to the windows. The city of Athens was just starting its night, 9:30pm is still considered quite early for the Greeks. The cafe across our building was full of people – some were drinking coffee while some were having the
