Memes of the Relationship Persuasion

I've been working on this post for awhile. There was a knee jerk reaction to start this and then...  I lost motivation and started to put off my writing in general... But I am back. I am making myself sit and write this as I attempt to get back into the swing of things. I… Continue reading Memes of the Relationship Persuasion

When one has a boyfriend…

Oh my goodness you guys, I completely forgot about something. I was going back through old messages between myself and Maja trying to find some particulars we discussed about a memory I was planning to write for you today (still will do if I am able to construct it in time) and I came across… Continue reading When one has a boyfriend…

Dear Mr Harris

Earlier this week I wrote about a trigger I had when I came across someone that mentioned Joshua Harris' 1997 book "I Kissed Dating Goodbye." Today I got a comment from Kristen over at The Ungodly Woman who let me know that Mr Harris has started apologizing to people for the negative effects of his… Continue reading Dear Mr Harris

Fuck it, I dated

Who remembers that book "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" by Josh Harris? Ah, that's right... now I can tell which of you grew up in the evangelical youth culture. I just read a blog that mentioned that book, and man it took me back... It took me back to the evangelical days of my youth in which… Continue reading Fuck it, I dated

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

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

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

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.

A Kick in The Gut

I was scrolling through tumblr for the first time in months when I came across this on the Unsent Project page I follow: I don't think I've mentioned the unsent project before on here - it is where people send in text messages they wish the could send to old lovers, primarily, and the artist… Continue reading A Kick in The Gut

This Should Have Ended

A friend once told me that my mind must always be on... She'd read my blog once in awhile and it just amazed her at how much I have to say and how many blog posts I could churn out. I don't feel like they are all that many - of course I go through… Continue reading This Should Have Ended

The next year I changed

So get this, I'm not sure if I've previously made it clear on the blog that I live in a small town in Central Australia. I've been here a few years, but I also used to live here as a child. When I moved back, there was a certain level of expectation that I would… Continue reading The next year I changed

Equal parts puke and pride

January 2015, I looked Wyatt back up on facebook and sent him a private message with a letter attached. I decided that it was finally time to disagree with him. Last we had spoken, he didn't recall a bad break up. He said he still loved me. He didn't appear to acknowledge any issue with… Continue reading Equal parts puke and pride

Rory and Jess / Emma and Dan

So there I was, re-watching Gilmore Girls for the umpteenth time. I’ve slowly made my way up through Season 3 over the past few weeks and last night culminated in Rory Graduating from Chilton. Rory Gilmore graduated in 2003 – the year after I graduated Gymnasium. So essentially, Rory would be close to my age.… Continue reading Rory and Jess / Emma and Dan

Poetry escapes me

Late night thoughts. Enjoy ~   I am no poet; words of love have no place in my vocabulary and yet... Daily his name creeps across my thoughts Simple. His name. Followed imminently by the words "I love him." Without fail; as if the words are etched in my brain. I've become accustomed to this… Continue reading Poetry escapes me

Fuckin’ A, Man… Fuckin’ A

**Liberal use of explicit language** I just watched Fear for the first time in... oh, I dunno... at least a decade, maybe more like 15 years. I messaged Maja several times during the movie - "Fuckin' A" coming from my keyboard more than once. So many fucking similarities to my relationship with Wyatt. A bit… Continue reading Fuckin’ A, Man… Fuckin’ A

Fear

I was talking to Maja about old movies tonight. I mentioned an '80s movie I watched after a long time last night - and how horrified I was at one part. I always expect '80s movies to get away with so much more than movies do today, yet this one part just... no. I'll write… Continue reading Fear

“A Love Lesson”

I've been reading Tyler Oakley's new book "Binge." While I wish I had time to sit down an read it in one fell swoop - I can't because of busy, but when I do I *ahem* Binge on it. While the book is much as a fan of Tyler would expect - lots of sex… Continue reading “A Love Lesson”

Scrimmage

My lip curled into a half-smile as I saw Wyatt walk out onto the field in his football gear. He had invited me to spend the day with him at his school. He went to a public school - one of the worst rated on the east coast at the time - and I was… Continue reading Scrimmage

Welcome to the Freak Show

It was early morning – the sun not even up yet - and Lord was it cold. Even so, I was wearing only my white daisy dukes along with my hoodie. My feet decked out in rusty orange Vans. As we waited for everyone to arrive, my boyfriend put his arms around me, enveloping me… Continue reading Welcome to the Freak Show
