Get Your Procrastination Treated!

Written by on June 21st, 2007

Which one of us can claim to have never procrastinated? Let me tell you. None. Even while reading this article, you’re procrastinating on something — doing the dishes, writing that essay on your thoughts of Shakespeare, taking out the trash, listening to that new CD, eating, or even sleeping.

Life can really take you on the most amazing paths; some bad, some good, but always interesting.

To Decor or not Decor

Written by on March 19th, 2007

To Decor or not Decor…That’s the question. Okay so that title isn’t grammatically correct but whatever. I have jounalistic license. Clothes make a statement. Make-up makes a statement and strangely enough, so do bedrooms. Your bedroom can define you as romantic, mysterious, confused, gothic, dramatic, cultured…In fact whatever you please. It’s not just the accessories […]

Spring Cleaning or Spring Cluttering?

Written by on March 19th, 2007

That is the question that an OCD sufferer can answer with ease. We happen to love cleaning. Yes it’s strange. Yes it’s therapy-worthy. I love spring cleaning. In fact I love it so much that I have a monthly cleaning. I am the Almighty Queen of all that is symmetrical, clean, germ-free (Dettol and bleach […]

Brown Girls in a White World

Written by on January 2nd, 2007

South-Asian girls like myself often face problems while shopping for clothing in American malls and department stores. The different styles are often much too revealing for modest girls to wear; gaping necklines and midriff-baring tops are definitely a no. From what I’ve noticed, with each passing year, clothing brands are producing increasingly skimpy clothes, and […]

The Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

Written by on December 1st, 2006

Are people stupid? More specifically, are women stupid? Last night I watched Tonight with Trevor Macdonald and they were focusing on FAS (fetal alcohol syndrome) and women who drink through pregnancy. A stupid 60% of women drink throughout their pregnancy which increases (and is ‘incidentally’ the only cause) of fetal alcohol syndrome. Fetal Alcohol Syndrome […]

The Anti-Chick Lit Rant

Written by on December 1st, 2006

I have managed to annihilate myself from the female gender. Yet again! Let me explain. I am not quite a normal girl. I do grow my nails and wear make-up but nowadays so do most boys. The thing that sets me apart is that I hate romantic comedies and chick-lit. It gives me a headache […]

Competition in the Desi Community

Written by on October 1st, 2006

Considering I am the eldest daughter in a semi-traditional Desi family, being the victim of a brutal comparison to some other kid is not new to me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure children from different backgrounds deal with the same thing, but for some reason, it seems more prominent in Desi families. How many […]
