Afghan-Canadian writer who enjoys witty quips and BTS, proper grammar and Jodie Comer.
I tweet with @MrsBananaPhone because it's the best and beats the rest.
In 2022, when I switch on "Do Not Disturb" I will mean it
I used to work on a Vocal article virtually everyday from March 2020 up until a few months ago. Following an unprecedented lockdown of the entire province of Ontario back during that March, I was laid off from my comfortable government service gig (I worked at the DMV and yes, I have stories!) and decided to return to writing after a two year hiatus.
Zen Playlist: BTS Edition (as told by "Picture It" scenarios)
We all have our own respective methods we use to try to relax. Some choose to bake, others binge The Office for the millionth time and many, like myself, take a long drive when it's pouring rain while listening to their favourite moody tracks. There are countless ambiance videos readily available on YouTube all dedicated to "X hours of Driving in the Rain when it's night time and you're a child asleep in the back seat of the car."

Although I doubted it would grab my attention as much as something like The Mandalorian did where I found myself counting down the hours until Friday.
"You Can't Stop Me Lovin' Myself!": How these 7 BTS Songs taught me to Embrace Self-Love

A Letter to Pop: The Origins of Bitcoin
Dated: August 2nd, 2008 To: Fisher Retirement Community. ATTN: Letter for Mr. Nakamoto. *** Dear Dad, Hi Pop. It's Sato-chan. I'm your daughter. Sorry it's been awhile since I've been able to visit. I'm actually still trying to fix my wristwatch but it's tough trying to find a specialist in my neighborhood that can repair it. It's... beat up pretty bad.
Riverdale may be a dumpster fire but it is MY dumpster fire
There's a scene in season 2 of Riverdale wherein teenager Archie Andrews is surrounded by a group of shirtless teenaged boys who are part of a new collective called The Red Circle as he threatens the Black Hood for terrorizing their beloved town with pep.
