A Day in the life of a quarantined Energy Analyst

This is my working space in my room. Don’t judge my ghetto lamp it fell down a few weeks ago and the lampshade broke off 😂. I usually start the day listening to some music or interesting podcasts on Youtube. I have a Rubik’s cube on my desk as I’m trying to solve one on…

Describe yourself?

“Tell me more about yourself?”; “Who are you?”; “Describe yourself in three words?” Whenever someone asks me any of these questions, my palms get sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy… haha no, but on a serious note though my mind always goes blank and I never know what to say because I don’t think I…

So, I quit my job as an Energy Trader!

Today I’ve decided to break down and analyze “The Devil Wears Prada” directed by David Frankel, which I admit I have lost count just how many times I’ve rewatched this…

Energy Analyst reacts: The Cloverfield Paradox horror movie

I have a background in sustainable energy engineering and experience working as an Energy Trader and Analyst.

Stoic Bites: Seneca the Younger (#02)

The whole future lies in uncertainty: live immediately. Lucius Annaeus Seneca (c. 4 BC – AD 65) Seneca was a Roman stoic philosopher, statesman, and dramatist. His late writings are a strong pillar and laid the foundational knowledge of ancient stoicism. In one of Seneca’s most famous essays ” On the Shortness of Life” Seneca emphasizes the…

My case against soulmates: Part 1

Soul mates don’t exist. I haven’t always been this cynical, like most little girls, Disney movies had me believing that somewhere in the world there was one human being who was specially made for me. That fate would make sure our paths would eventually cross, we would emphatically fall in love and live happily ever…
