What 11 seasons of Bones have taught me

I am a bit of a TV show addict. I got hooked on great tv in primary school, which is when I fell in love with med dramas - first ER (which caused me to have hots for George Clooney ever since), then Grey's Anatomy, which I'm still faithful to 13 seasons on (and counting). I… Continue reading What 11 seasons of Bones have taught me

The thing is, I'm not modest at all, and I don't aspire to be. For a reason I don't quite understand, modesty is… Continue reading Modesty is overrated

What’s so special about yoga?

If you're looking for a post about the philosophy of yoga, how I cleaned my chakras (or whatever you do with chakras...) or how yoga is the response to all bad things in life, then you're in a totally wrong place. I'm sure Google can take you somewhere that will play right into this theme,… Continue reading What’s so special about yoga?
