FAME! (My embarrassment) will live forever!

I have a story to tell you, one that may make you laugh, but first let me preface with the reason this memory popped into my head. I have become addicted to a clothing line called "Lularoe" which is an American brand that is sold via consultants and are not only very comfortable, but versatile… Continue reading FAME!

F*ck me, I’d be lying

The day was chilly, but hardly cold. At least not in the sense that we had to wear actual jackets - but it's all relative, I guess. Swedish autumn warranted our turtle neck sweaters; mine being the rusty orange one I had bought in Copenhagen, and Maja's was striped with blues and browns. As always,… Continue reading F*ck me, I’d be lying

I Don’t Know! I Was Pissed At You!

Maja is the only person I have actually threatened with a blog post, and actually followed through with it... I often say to my friends "Don't make me write a blog post about you!" or "This is SO going on my blog!" ...But usually, it's an empty threat; an attempt at humour, except when it… Continue reading I Don’t Know! I Was Pissed At You!

A Disappointing Revelation ft. MAJA ;)

Maja and I had a good chat last night – talking about a range of things for nearly two hours, so I can’t relay the whole conversation. At least, not all together at the moment, haha. But one thing we talked about reminded me of some events during High School I thought I’d tell you… Continue reading A Disappointing Revelation ft. MAJA 😉

Anywhoozle – a review of Amy Schumer’s book “The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo”

Dissociation and Flippancy

I just picked up Amy Schumer's book "The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo." I came across it yesterday at our local Kmart, I reached out and picked it up without a second thought. Not even considering the price as I would usually do. That's because I've long considered her my spirit animal - a… Continue reading Dissociation and Flippancy

Taylor Swift Gets Me : Reprise

While we’re on the topic of Taylor Swift, I went back and perused my posts from February 2015 – when I started this blog – and came across one of the first posts I had written that was also a I-have-a-girl-crush-on-Taylor kind of post. What I had done is compiled and mashed up several of… Continue reading Taylor Swift Gets Me : Reprise

Our Song – You’ll Always be a Part of Me

As I drove along in the rain drizzle towards work, I listened to Taylor Swift’s Fearless album. It had been awhile since I had listened to Taylor, so I turned it up as I crested over the bridge headed out of town. Firstly, I’d like to say that some of you may know that I… Continue reading Our Song – You’ll Always be a Part of Me

Tactile Hallucinations

I lay there in the hospital bed, exhausted though I hadn’t done much that day. I was still hooked up to a PCA pain pump as my surgery had just been the previous evening. I can’t recall now exactly what opiate they were giving me; but it seemed to work for the pain, though I… Continue reading Tactile Hallucinations

Sweet!

Just got a new review on Amazon - a 4 star this time - not too shabby 🙂 But the thing that stuck out to me is that the reviewer said  it was a library book... What?! SWEET! My book is in a library in Oklahoma City apparently 🙂 That's kinda cool. It's the little… Continue reading Sweet!

Becoming Stronger

Wow, you guise. I've been receiving some awesome feedback about the guest post I did ( "One Day" ) for Carla Louise's blog - both there, on my reblog, and in my private messages. It's an amazing feeling to have others connect with your writing; and from what one blogger commented today - to receive some credit for… Continue reading Becoming Stronger

This is a Strange Sensation

Huh. My nose is numb… and my lips… aaaand my fingers. This is a strange sensation, I think to myself. I stumble slightly as I set down my glass of Vodka on the coffee table and decide to take a seat on the couch. I just need to sit for a moment, I think… No,… Continue reading This is a Strange Sensation

My God, it’s been two years

I just realized that National Child Protection week is nearly upon us again, which led me to realize that it's been two years since I Said It Out Loud. Wow, has it really been that long? It's been a crazy two years. I look back on how I was in 2014, when I was figuratively… Continue reading My God, it’s been two years

Of Marriageable Age

As I get older, I seem to find I meet more and more people that aren't married though they are around my age or older. I used to think I would be one of those people. I always expected one day to get married, but though my parents were married young (comparatively to all my friends'… Continue reading Of Marriageable Age

Seriously. Stop it.

I have a pet peeve... not so much a pet peeve I suppose; more something that initially annoys me and then makes me feel sorry for people - in the end not affecting my personal feelings terribly much. But as I write about relationships sometimes - and have so far become that person for several… Continue reading Seriously. Stop it.

Being a Desdemona

Today I was out to lunch with some of the Jiu Jitsu girls after training and one of them started to complain that she wanted to see the Melbourne Ballet company perform Romeo and Juliet at our local arts centre tonight - but no one would go with her. I told her I had been… Continue reading Being a Desdemona

Hanging with the boys

Ha. Coach read my last post and made a comment to me about having made the right decision to have a woman take over running the female-only class – because he can’t /doesn’t want to be involved with girl talk. LOL I told him if he needs to cover the class another time I promised… Continue reading Hanging with the boys

War Wounds

After training today, the girls present sat in a circle on the mat as we stretched and chatted. I showed them a sizeable bruise on my knee that I had earned the Saturday before that still had some dark indigo emanating from it... Something I had tried to take pictures of to show a couple… Continue reading War Wounds

Fight Like a F**cking Viking!

My God, I’ve spent too much money this week. I received my tax return last week and while I put most of it away, I did set aside a certain amount as spending money. I wanted to clean out my closets and get some new clothes – especially workout clothes as I have been spending… Continue reading Fight Like a F**cking Viking!
