I know, I haven't blogged for a long time, so let's just get that out of the way now. Warning: It’s a long post. What can I say, I’ve got several months’ worth of blah-blahs to make up for.

The practical reason for it is that I was, honestly, just incredibly busy. I work a full-time day job for 40-50+ hours a week. I’ve been spending a lot of time studying...

For the time I stood in a crowd and had a man press himself up against me, feeling his hot and unwelcome breath on the back of my neck as he tried to place his hands on me, so that even after I turned to face and stop him and the coward bolted, I took four showers in a row in the hottest water I could stand when I went home that night.

Ok, the title of this post is a little misleading. You see, it harks to the now ubiquitous expression #SorryNotSorry, which as well all know is used to feistily symbolize someone feeling completely unapologetic for whatever they've just said or done preceding that phrase (or post, since it's an #InstagramFavourite). And while I could probably write a whol...

In 2001, a book written by American author, lawyer, and Yale Law School professor Amy Chua called "Battle Hymn Of The Tiger Mother" made headlines around the world. It was one that my fellow East Asian (and half East Asian) friends and I could instantly relate to: "It's like the story of my life, sort of!" we exclaimed. The book's summary reads as such: "...
