Just as we said to the person who messaged us in hopes that we could plan a birthday celebration for them, we are — sadly — not the pizza parlor at Circular Road.
is a collection of inner monologues by young adults. Created in 2020 by Singapore-based writer Sherryl Cheong, the site aims to share the experiences and musings of those who are not quite teens and not yet adults.
Here, you will find personal essays, diary entries, academic essays, product as well as workshop reviews, and more. (Although we are mostly known for our articles about dating in modern Singapore.) Through these formats, our team hopes to feature a variety of voices, personalities, and lives. The thread that ties all the contributors together would be the desire to create as well as a deep appreciation for the everyday.
As our team values transparency, we will indicate if products and experiences are gifted or media previews; we do not receive payment for features so as to possess autonomy over our content.
Why are some of your contributors anonymous?
The reasons vary but avoiding accountability is not one of them. It may be due to the sensitivity of the subject matter or our contributors’ personal preference of having a squeaky clean record when you search their names. Or perhaps they wish to avoid being mistaken for moonlighting (they’re not). More often than not, it’s because of the importance of ensuring that their ideas and views are not perceived as that of their employers.
