Writer’s Update

It's been awhile since I've let you all know the status of my rewrite for my first book... so here it is. Too be honest I decided to write this update because I basically needed to shift focus from my mess of a manuscript right now! Ah! I had my friend Klutzy go through the… Continue reading Writer’s Update

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

Bootboys

The other day, I mentioned a guy that I had suspected was skinhead - but had no real proof other than his appearance. That memory is fuzzy, as I said, so maybe I did have more to base that assumption on that I just forgot... But regardless, it prompted another very clear memory for me.… Continue reading Bootboys

First Kisses, what am I missing?

I feel like I'm missing out on something. I'm missing out on an important piece of nostalgia... I've tried to remember a few times, but it doesn't come to anything. A few days ago as I was driving my car, I had one of my youth girls in the passenger seat and she put in… Continue reading First Kisses, what am I missing?

Absolut Kurant

This memory is fuzzy - as the title and featured image may suggest - but I don't think that's really the reason this memory sits far back in my mind... The details of which refuse to come forward fully. I've had flashes of memory regarding this night a few times over the past few years,… Continue reading Absolut Kurant

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”

Good Morning, Lovelies. I finished Amy Schumer’s book “The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo” last night, and Ariel Lynn has asked me to do an actual book review – so here we go!   Ms Schumer’s book is a collection of autobiographical essays that range from the expected humorous to challenging and at times… Continue reading Anywhoozle – a review of Amy Schumer’s book “The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo”

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

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!

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

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

Maja, älskling

I was certain I was going to take a break from blogging for a few days at least... Maybe a week... I've written quite a lot recently, and I don't want to burn out and write non-quality stuff... and to be honest, I'm not entirely pleased with my last post... meh. Could have been better.… Continue reading Maja, älskling

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

The Scandal of it all

I struggle between wanting to be the open and honest mother  - no pussy footing around - that I would like to be with my children vs wanting to shield them from the scary truths. I don't want my kids to be overly sheltered ... I also don't want to fade out as a person… Continue reading The Scandal of it all

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 Numbers Game

I'll get back to writing about my surgery later - I have a few things I want to record, such as my tactile hallucinations and what it was like to actually go under... but first I have another topic on my mind that I wanted to write about before I lose the inspiration. So I… Continue reading A Numbers Game

Airing my dirty laundry

Sometimes I forget that people might get taken aback when I am frank about my personal life. I've never worried much about "airing the family's dirty laundry" as my parents called it. I would get scolded once in awhile for saying things that were supposedly our family figurative undergarments; but even now it was never… Continue reading Airing my dirty laundry
