Just this week I intended to do a four-day fast without consulting my doctor. Terrible idea.
After 36 hours of fasting, I decided to stop.
While there are some benefits to fasting, these benefits usually vary from person to person. I didn’t feel hunger and I definitely lost some water weight or from…
I totally agree with you on this — that we will come to a point when we have to let go of some of our passion to pursue something else that sparks joy in our lives. People around us may question us when we do so, but they will eventually understand in time.
Now I’m regretting why I gave up on index cards.
I’ve been using index cards for book notes, quotations, vocabulary builder, and day-to-day scheduling and tasks until I’ve decided I would go digital. I’ve lost touch with my handwriting since then. But hey, I guess it’s not too late to get back to it. Besides, it has only…

I’m not too old but I had a taste of what an analog life felt like. With the…
I’ve never thought of a mentor-mentee relationship could work in this way. This is very interesting and profound. As you said, there might be methods at work that we’ll never know because those who mastered this art would never tell us. I think it is a skill to recognize professional father-professional son…
Thanks for sharing this, Zat!
It has been quite difficult for me to make friends apart from what Aristotle referred to as “accidental friendship”. As of the moment, most of my friends would fall into this category. Either I’ve been too shallow or I haven’t been open enough to find the people with whom I could be friends for…
