not so great start to 2018 / not giving in

I have had an interesting first five days of the new year … through bad jetlag, vomiting, headaches and THE MOST HORRIBLE DREAM I’ve ever had, I’m a little disheartened. To put it mildly, my spirits are dampened. BUT BUT BUT I’m not going to throw in the towel. I was thinking about this and…

merry happy holiday time

This is the first christmas I’ve not spent in a family home/with my family. It has been weird but so so exciting! Different families have so many different traditions and ways that they celebrate. The types of gifts and food (we ate a turkey shot with love,) the handing out of gifts and opening together…

narcissism in cyberspace

Is it narcissistic to want to blog?? Do I think my thoughts and opinions are so interesting that other people should pay attention to me? I have felt very guilty lately regarding that, which would explain why I haven’t posted anything here in many a month. Also I’ve been quite occupied with extreme diets, stress…

christmas eve revelations

I’ve been staying with friends in Texas, and have therefore been going to church with them. Today, we attended a new years eve service, which involved candles and a lot of atmospheric music. Sometime during the sermon, the pastor said ‘who is in control of your life?’ Obviously he was speaking within the realm of…

hehehe

I’ve made a decision. I want to live my life like I’m two adorable Asian babies laughing at each other on a bus. Let me explain. When I was on the bus, about to get off, a wonderful sound broke through my earphones – baby laughter. Two women had been chatting, and they both had…

birthday time

So, in case you hadn’t guessed from the title- is ma boorthday! And I have acting the whole day, like the world is mine to conquer. You know what I’m talking about, right? Like, ‘I’m sitting/talking/walking/acting like I am- I’ll do what I damn well please, it’s my birthday!‘ And I have been thinking, why…

actual humans

So, over the past week, I have had two people like my blog posts. And yes, I don’t know if they were just trying to get me to notice their blogs (if so it worked, good jobs you two.) But it made me think, after having someone other than my grandfather and brother comment on…

learning to let go of an argument

I love arguing. I think I have a reserved part of me that is very afraid of being judged or hurt, and then I have this part that is just like ‘I will tell you what I think and if you disagree with it I will make a skin suit of you.’ But I think there…

‘my sister has anxiety’

I was feeling a wee bit panicky on Thursday, what with school swimming carnival noise and yadayadah. The teachers and I we’re tight (by that I mean I’ve cried in front of all of them) so they let me just sit in a chair and cheell. I have this one fantastic teacher, taught me History last year,…

pandas are a bad idea

Did you know how weird pandas are?? Seriously. They are super weird. They only eat bamboo, but their stomachs are designed for carnivores (something about glucose and cell breakdown – I dunno) but that’s so weird isn’t it? This is sort of a weird incoherent post, but it’s been a long week and I can’t…

grief, loss and cheezels

So, today I went to a memorial for a close family friend who recently passed away. (if you would care to read back at my weird dreams post, that’ll give you a bit of background info). And I am not going to make this post very funny, so sorry if you were expecting a bundle…

So,  I don’t really want the internet to see my face (you could be skinning a squirrel as you read this) so I came up with an ingenious solution. Because I’m a flopping genius.
