I am grateful for IT because IT led me here, right now, to you

So, here I am. Trying again. Focusing a lot less on being perfect and a lot more on creating purpose. Yes, the fact that I’m typing this conversation-style post full of grammatical errors is causing the pastime English major in me to cringe, but it’s fine (for now). Someone once told me that a “finished something” is sometimes better than a “perfect nothing”.

I saved $45 to $60 by not buying a cap and gown, which is perfect because I need to save up if I’m going to buy VIP passes to a Def Leppard concert

My last week of school was from May 3 to May 7, and thankfully, I only had final projects, so once that week was done, I was done because I finished my final projects early. When my last article for Ka Leo was published, I knew that things would not be the same, and that I had to step up my game and find a job. Honestly, I didn’t spend too much time looking for a job during the spring 2021 semester because I wanted to focus on graduating first, but now that I’m done with school, I’m freaking out!


I would love to share my experiences as someone who is a global nomad and connect to those who share similar experiences

I want to talk about what it is like to live in the USA as a Malaysian. How it is like to be close friends from people from China, Mexico, Cameroon, Thailand and many other countries. I hope to connect with many of you who resonate with my blog and I would love to hear your experiences living in many different countries and connecting with different cultures!


Both letters and contents, addressed to me!

When we were taught about letters, letter writing and post offices in school,  we had to write a letter to ourselves and post them. After we had tracked back our letters, we had to write an essay recording the process. I couldn’t wait to get my letter back! I ran back and waited till 4.20 pm when the post man would come by to collect the letters from the post box near home.  I even remember asking him, when I’d get my letter! Finally, when I got back my letter and saw the stamping on it- I was thrilled. It had actually been to some place else and had came back to me!


I am so starved for human interaction and connection these days

Keywords: anxiety , healing , mental health , motherhood

For the past few years, I’ve felt like I’ve had a dark storm cloud over my head. It forced me to withdraw from the world, which now I know I needed in order to heal and determine the types of relationships I wanted to manifest in my life. Since that period has passed, I am so so so eager to get in the world and connect…. but for obvious reasons, that is a bit difficult at the moment, so I’m grateful for any interaction, even if it is someone asking Mila what kind of bug she is holding.
