God, just move on already, Emma!

I've been sitting here for an hour, one sentence written - since deleted. I've had this vague sense of what I would write about, but it's hard to express the swirling thoughts about it in my head. I've had the passing thought about the topic for a few days, and then today I stumbled upon… Continue reading God, just move on already, Emma!

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Two days until October, and you know what that means! No, no... well... yes, Halloween; but that's not what I'm here to talk about this evening. It was brought to my attention today that here in America, October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. One of the other blogs I follow (When I Thought I was… Continue reading Domestic Violence Awareness Month

That Got The Writer In Me Thinking

I'm supposed to be doing homework, and housework, and hey - writing! But instead I am sitting watching too many episodes of That 70s Show on Netflix. I've had this blog post open to edit for a couple of hours, but only just started... Geez I'm lazy today. I'll blame it on the heat, as… Continue reading That Got The Writer In Me Thinking

Danish Hygge Vs Swedish Mysa

It’s become popular in the English-speaking world to reference the Danish word “Hygge,” a somewhat untranslatable word as far as we English speakers go – a word that does not have a direct single word translation in our language. A mystery, perhaps, why we never thought to have our own word for such an activity,… Continue reading Danish Hygge Vs Swedish Mysa

I’ve Caught The Feels

The thing is, for many years, I built up my walls and buried emotions deep down... I'd remain calm and like a duck out of water, I'd let a whole lot of stuff roll off my back. Eventually my suppressed emotions would bubble over until I breathed fire if and when certain people stepped over… Continue reading I’ve Caught The Feels

Sunday Night Blues; the second edition

I took my own advice yesterday and marched into my boss' office after my shift and informed her I would not be returning this morning. I had originally gave her a month's notice which would have had my last shift be this coming Monday... but I was convinced to stay on as casual after that… Continue reading Sunday Night Blues; the second edition

Sunday Night Blues

I read some advice recently; somewhere in the vast expanse of the web, that said something to the effect of "Don't settle for a job that gives you the Sunday night blues." Those of you that may work seven days a week and think to yourself "What does Sunday night have to do with anything?"… Continue reading Sunday Night Blues

My Little Ravenclaw Heart

Today I'm just going to muse on writing/blogging and general whatever-comes-to-mind topics... so if you have enough of that already on your feed... then... well... Move on if you must. I'll at least vaguely attempt to make it interesting haha. Last week was CNA appreciation week and as such there was a display put up… Continue reading My Little Ravenclaw Heart

Omnilinguism Goals

A year and a half ago I submitted my answers for our St John Cadets end of year yearbook - the "fun" question that year was what superpower I'd want to have... I answered I'd want to be Omnilinguistic - otherwise the power to know all languages. One of my teen boys decided he liked… Continue reading Omnilinguism Goals

I will fight, for those who can not fight for themselves.

You guys - Geek Emma had some excitement yesterday in the form of... Squeeeeee.... The new Wonder Woman movie! To be honest I've never watched the old show with Lynda Carter and I haven't read most of her comics (though I do have an anthology of the war-time comics that I plan to sit and… Continue reading I will fight, for those who can not fight for themselves.

Reblogging Emma: Tell Your Stories (revamped)

Post #6 in my recycling series... only 2-3 more to go, I promise 😉 This one is from September 2015 and the content has been changed a fair bit (the second half deleted and replaced by different content) so it is not actually by rights the same post 🙂 My friend posted a quote on FB for… Continue reading Reblogging Emma: Tell Your Stories (revamped)

Flashback Saturday? …No… That’s not right…

Good Morning, lovelies. I have been mulling over an issue this week regarding my blog. Earlier this week, a blog I follow - Suzie Speaks - wrote a post about recycling blog content. Talking about reblogging oneself or reediting old content into new posts as once a blog starts gaining many more followers than it… Continue reading Flashback Saturday? …No… That’s not right…

No Longer Woefully Tattooless

I've been wanting a tattoo since I was 17. I've told you all this before. I was never the type to jump in for such a permanent addition to my body without being absolutely sure I would love it forever... So I gave myself time limits to think on ideas and if I had any… Continue reading No Longer Woefully Tattooless

Platitudes

Let go and let God. God works in mysterious ways. Jesus died for you. Talk to Him, He loves you. God is always with you. He is the great healer/comforter. Satan lies... I'll pray for you. What if I don't want you to pray for me? What if you knew that you come off as… Continue reading Platitudes

Books to read; books to inspire

  I don't know if I can point to many particular authors to narrow down the list as opposed to listing actual book titles. I also don't know if I can say that any particular book or author specifically inspired me to write like Mr Bailey was able to do, so I am going to… Continue reading Books to read; books to inspire
