Boobs Over Bombs

On August 3rd in Hong Kong, citizens lined up to protest the 3.5 month prison sentence for a woman forassaulting a police officer with her breast.  A few months ago… A lady walks over to me, chewing a chocolate cookie, a sneer already on her face. I know she’s about to say something I won’t like. Two young girls had just passed by, one with short purple hair, showing a bra strap, wearing tights and platforms, another rocking a crop top (maybe some cleavage) and jean shorts. “I need to start dyin...Read more...

YES, YOU CAN

Magic enters our life the moment we meet that special person. It is as if that person is the angel who will make all our dreams come true. And, for the longest time they remain magical and angelic, until we give them our hearts. At that moment, we begin watching our dreams turn into nightmares. Let’s be real; the signs were there from the very beginning and we either ignore them or we are too in love to see “the truth”. We continue dreaming and hoping that one day they will change. Even though,...Read more...

Egg On My Face

“Science is science and politics is politics, we try not to mix the two.” I made breakfast this morning, egg and toast. My older sister had discovered an excellent way to cook eggs without making any dirty dishes. Simply put the eggs in a microwavable plastic container and break the egg yolks…set the timer for one minute. I’ve been doing just that, it’s lovely, minimal mess as well. This morning however following the routine, I pulled out what I thought was a cooked...Read more...

Bed of lies

Lies lies and more lies, going threw this process of telling the police, waiting for charges and arrests and then trial and going threw councelling you have to re live every moment, every time, every emotion and prepare yourself to have all the anger and sadness that you have worked on to come rolling back in like a wave. But you can take comfort in that every time it will be less intense, last shorter and slowly it will be less and less each time you talk or remember. With that threw this I...Read more...

Where is the Line?

where is the line? Sitting at my desk having a listen a few old songs that have always been my favourites while reading The New York Times, the Black Eyed Peas shuffled through the playlist. Their song “Where is the Love?” popped in my head phones and I was faced with the song’s challenge to us humans who occupy this world. It seems at times that we breathing beings who can talk, use our brains to further humanity on the whole, have forgotten that the word “living” defines more than we humans. B...Read more...

Words are powerful, so use yours!

These days, power lies in the hands of those who have the courage to evoke change and that in turn is in whatever gift you have/possess. Own it. Words have brought about change, words are the waves to wash over and encourage us even in the toughest of times to keep moving forward despite the mainstream ideals.  ...Read more...

Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; suddenly you’re doing the impossible. ~Francis of Assisi I have found that though I am a certified cynic, albeit a harbinger of happiness, a person who claims to have seen many things, I am still amazed by the goodness I witness in humanity every once in a blue moon. Thank goodness for those moments, they keep me grounded in possibilities, otherwise I’d float up in an unimpressed hovel. You’re wondering why I’ve taken to the blogosphere t...Read more...

Speaking Up

~This is my first blog I’ve ever done for anyone to read at least I’ve wanted to before but it just wasn’t the right time, until now. A few months ago for the first time told the truth of my life and what happened to me from age 17 to where I am today which is 28. I went to the police and I told it all, I thought I was going to feel better after I did then to my surprise I felt worse I felt extremely horrible but it wasn’t much difference to what I had already been feelin...Read more...

Boundaries

Yes, here on FindingFelicity we focus on bringing awareness to patient autonomy, AML and bone marrow donations. But there is merit in awareness and activism in other social issues, such as violence against women. I had a conversation recently about feminism coupled with International Women’s Day, and the gentleman (very eloquently) stated that he was tired of the whole argume...Read more...
