About Amanda Rakel 

I originally started this blog in 2018 but only posted sporadically until 2021, then I shut down the blog. Struggling to find a job, I was "advised" to remove my blog from my CV as well as my music as it would supposedly hinder me in landing a gig. But I realise now that my greatest pleasure in life is getting to self-express through writing and suppressing a natural urge to share my thoughts in written form, didn't feel right anymore. So after being dormant for two years, I'm relaunching the blog!

I think the way we go through life is fascinating, and that's primarily what my posts will be about: how I handle life, so that hopefully those of you who can't self-express, can find some connection.
