  • never to be toyed with
      the soul, each one
    going about their business
      within memories

    their likeness cast in moments
      inadequate for splendor
    bleeding onto a paper, the wood
      who sup’d with

    sunsets and drives and skin
      weather and fabric
    fleeting weird dreamily
      into awful backrooms.

    you try to write poems in a vacuum 
      but what instead
    long drive home looking for
      one song, any song

  • how then now if i make the short drive to where we first kissed
    by the river where we swam in rosa
    in the jeep we sold in atlanta
    what about reliving that moment, hyper aware
      of my khaki shorts
    disturbed by the blue lights
      i don’t care
    that was a big moment
       i sorta’d begun to figure you’d be my wife

  • Was feeling particularly lonely while at work today and decided to abandon all reason and turn to google for answers, typed “what to do feeling lonely” in the search bar. Clicked on the first article which proved to be largely useless but noticed several sentences that struck me with a sense of deja vu. Looked at my history and found that I’ve visited that exact article like five times in the past three years and mentally blanked it out each time. Fml.

  • If you’ve been following me for a while, then you probably know that I am a Psychological Sciences major. (It’s worth mentioning that I have declared an emphasis in Clinical/Health Psychology)

    Well, I am currently taking Psych 101 and I’ve been over a good chunk of the material so far. I’m opening myself up to questions regarding the following topics:

    1. Learning
    2. Emotion and Motivation
    3. Memory
    4. Neuroscience
    5. Consciousness, Sleep, and Drugs
    6. Sensation and Perception

    This list of topics brings me up to where I currently am in my coursework. Depending on how this Ask Me Anything goes, I want to do another one covering the remaining topics before my final exam.

    Please remember to keep your questions related to the topics above. I know many folks on this website are interested in developmental and abnormal psychology, but I haven’t gotten to those yet! If all goes well, we can do this again once I’ve covered those topics ;^)

    I really hope some of y’all participate! I’d love to answer your questions and be challenged on my knowledge. Do believe that I will research anything I am unsure of and include a disclaimer if I am unable to answer your question properly.

    So go ahead! Give my ask box a reason to exist and ask away!

  • I remember fondly, the landscapes of my childhood - the wet markets, bustling hawker centres and spacious void decks beneath HDB flats. To begin a series of recollections, I return to a scene of excitement - a makeshift table with shoddy plastic cloth and on it, a display of pirated CDs and VCDs individually packed in cheap plastic. It was illegal, we knew. Everyone knew. Yet, every weekend evening, near the hawker centre which we patronised, we would see uncles peddling their wares at 3 for $10. It was cheap and it didn’t matter that there were no proper CD/VCD covers. Each of them came with a square paper with poorly printed pictures of albums/movies of every genre and language. Our parents often let us choose the ang moh movies as we had little access to them on our local television network. Of course, these were a treat and money wasn’t parted with until the uncle promised for the third time that these were top quality copies and no glitches were to be expected. But they lie. There were movies with minor glitches - pauses and skips we patiently waited through - and there were those that just didn’t work anymore. Well, c'est la vie.

    In this day and age, we no longer see street peddlers flashing their wares, waving pirated VCDs in the air. Our children can’t watch with curious eyes as peddlers take flight at the sight/sound/hint of policemen.

  • In a way, I am arguing for the recategorizing of land through radical remembering and the memory field. Today, we are faced with an onslaught of new challenges as wildfires seep into cities, hurricanes grow in the seas, and big freezes take entire communities by surprise. The American colonial project that marked much of the land as a wild frontier has led to this very moment. Through radical remembering we are able to reclaim these wilds and frontiers as intimate parts of our very being. In that way, wilds and frontiers are transformed into homes and fields. They become part of the domestic, the intimate, and the spiritual. By reclaiming memory as a thing we can touch, we give a body to the memory machine that exists inside of our minds. It is this body that tells us stories. This body, our body, tells us stories. And sometimes our body listens for us to tell the stories of ponds, windmills, downtown buildings, apartment kitchens, dining tables, and tadpoles. We remember them and continue to remember them.

  • Memory exists as a kind of spatiotemporal entity, because time, memory, and land are woven together. One cannot look at the Grand Canyon without conjuring the deep time needed to create it. We drive past restaurants, and maybe we remember that one time that thing happened. I grow weary of the word “spatial,” because I am more interested in the idea of a terrestrial-temporal matrix. I call this terra-temporal matrix the “memory field” because of memory’s unique engagement with time and land. Time is terrestial and feeds our cognitive development and relationship to the universe itself. The word “terrestrial” also grows heavy; it has similarities with words like “sublunary,” which place the terrestrial opposite a religious or spiritual space. The word “temporal” isn’t adequate either. The memory field is a matrix of time, memory, and land. Land’s connection to time feeds our development as human beings, and understanding this connection strengthens our relationship to the universe itself.

    “Stop me if I’ve told you about this…” why would I when my memory is bad enough I barely remember my own stories? Hearing someone else relive a moment let’s me go on the journey again, like a good roller-coaster why only ride it once.
