Groundhog Day

I don’t really know what to talk about, perhaps if I type for long enough some eureka moment might strike me much like the sudden urge to pee just as you’re in early morning traffic. I feel like everyday is Groundhog day in my life currently, yes – new month new me pessimistic perspective aboutContinue reading “Groundhog Day”

Why Is Life So Hard (Sometimes)?

“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”– Confucious I think we can convince ourselves at times that the word ‘simple’ is synonymous with ‘boring’. And no-one wants a boring life, right? So what do we do, we fill our day with numerous ‘tasks’, be it in the physical sense or simplyContinue reading “Why Is Life So Hard (Sometimes)?”

Art Art Art

Sentences which would spring to mind if I were to gaze upon the beauty of these masterpieces at the museum: ‘The Look’ – when someone steals your last crisp. Royal Collection Trust The ‘home late from work infront of the TV seriously questioning what I’m doing with my life’ kind of look. When Mother opensContinue reading “Art Art Art”

Should I Get A Pet Pt II?

If you missed my account of ‘Tiger Lily’ the assassin goldfish and my escapee terrapins, check it out here.  And now onto the next poor sods to ever cross my path, the mini-dinosaurs of the world – the birds.  The Budgerigars It must be a sad life being a bird trapped in a cage, andContinue reading Should I Get A Pet Pt II?

Should I Get A Pet? 

Growing up, my house was one animal short of being the 21st century’s answer to Noah’s ark. From terrapins to budgies, fish to cats and dogs, and even the occasional earthworm and snail, it’s fair to say that my parents were pretty open to the idea of having their house destroyed by their adorable childrenContinue reading Should I Get A Pet? 

My Love….

My eyes did not widen,  Like heavy husks of tea-soaked bread, I lay idle, unable to move. Submerged in the viscosity of my own tears.  How could you leave me all alone on this planet? After all of these years. They say a heart heals in the hands of time. So why does mine only hurtContinue reading “My Love….”

Why Haven’t I Written Anything In 4 Months?

If you’d thought I’d perished, fear not, for phoenixes rise from the ashes, and I from my bedroom once in a blue moon. What can I say? This sedentary state of mind and body takes its toll. But before I start quoting Confucius and reading palms I’ll adopt a more grounded tone of voice.  SoContinue reading “Why Haven’t I Written Anything In 4 Months?”

You Are Unique, No?

Something which has fascinated me for quite some time is this shared feeling many of us have, a feeling of internal friction. A part of us is pulled towards wanting to feel unique and feel like an individual, while the other pushes us to want to fit in and conform.  And so both forces, (asContinue reading “You Are Unique, No?”

Yes, Positives Do Exist (Just Squint Harder And You’ll See)

With so much negativity festering daily, from scaremongering and sensationalising tabloids spitting doomsday ‘news’ into our turquoise surgical masked faces, to apocalyptic scenes in some of the local supermarkets. I wanted to flip this on its head, and dare I say, try and see some positives to this nightmare we all find ourselves desperate toContinue reading “Yes, Positives Do Exist (Just Squint Harder And You’ll See)”

‘Tis The Season To Be (Un)Motivated

Has everybody’s motivation to do something productive been pretty much thrown overboard, and chained to a concrete block the size of a small car destined to sink to the bottom of the Mariana Trench never to see the light of day again? Or is that just me? As a human being I like to takeContinue reading “‘Tis The Season To Be (Un)Motivated”

Boredom-Busting Ideas

I’ve been trying to find new ways to keep myself occupied, especially since ‘winter is coming; and we all know what that entails. Stomach ulcers from too much hot tea drinking and cold sores from too much mistletoe snogging (well perhaps not this year mind you). Anyway the fact is I’m finding that boredom isContinue reading “Boredom-Busting Ideas”

It’s Been A While…….

There are people posting videos of themselves climbing their stairwells enough times they’re making Everest appear like little more than a speed ramp in comparison. And here I am struggling to get up in the morning and ‘head to work’ five footsteps from my bed.  But really, I must admit, and like many others (whichContinue reading “It’s Been A While…….”
