To myself, as a new year begins.



On the fourth of January this year I wrote myself a list of New Year’s resolutions, not of things that I wanted to do, but of the person that I wanted to be. Some things on that list I have been really good at, others not at all. Some of them aren’t as important to me now, at the end of the year, as they were at the beginning.

On identity, and racial Imposter Syndrome


Imposter syndrome is the fear that you will be exposed as a fraud. It’s the irrational belief that one day someone will catch on to you; that you’re not as good at something as you or everybody else has been led to believe.

Of course, not all love triangles are bad, but I have read so many books with the same old, repetitive formula, that I now have a nervous twitch. It’s becoming a problem.

The Ten Commandments of Book-ness

Say, what month is it? Why it’s Booktober, of course! November is for the moustachioed and bearded people, but Booktober is our month, the month of the book nerds! (Bearded and moustachioed book nerds feel free to join in on the fun) Is it technically the middle of the week? Yes! Did Booktober technically start three days ago? Yes! Will that stop me from revelling in my Booktober joy? NEVER!
