The blog

Here, I share my thoughts on just about anything I feel comfortable about. My writings are quite generic but I try to focus on questions about life, academia, mental health in the academic space, and occasionally, pressing political issues.

The academic life as we all know it is a lonely road and many struggle to journey through it comfortably. On this blog, I’ll share my experiences and provide advice on how to navigate it with as little spite as possible.

Additionally, I run an academic page on YouTube and a photography Instagram account, so I will share my work with you here. I hope you join me on this journey.
