Best Value Man Hunting

Earlier this year I switched jobs from software testing (and project coordination) at one of my companies clients to an entirely new field (bidmanagement) within the company itself. I went from being an external asset to swinging it as an internal manager. Quite the chance AND quite the change, let me tell you. Now –Continue reading “Best Value Man Hunting”

Decidably Soupy

Anyone that knows me a little knows this about me: I love soup. Sure. Anything fried, greasy or otherwise bad-for-my-health ALSO makes me do a little happy dance. But on the whole, if I had to pick one type of meal to eat for the rest of my life…it would be soup. Soup rocks. IContinue reading “Decidably Soupy”

Crazy cat lady gene: activated

Oh boy. I’m in trouble. These past three months have been a rollercoaster ride. And I’ll honestly tell you that I may or may not have had about 15 ‘I’m gonna die alone’ moments that may or may not have been fueled by drinking, or tears, or both. After several of these binges I wouldContinue reading “Crazy cat lady gene: activated”

Unpopular opinion: Intelligence is blah.

It is often said (to me, at least) that intelligence is a (core-)quality.That having a brain is attractive.

They tell me I’m being strong.They tell me I’m healing.And then I tell myself…HowContinue reading “And then I tell myself…”

Personal Blogging – To be recognisable or to be unique?

From a young age we’re all taught that we’re special little snowflakes. Those who are loved by their parents are the speciallest of special to them – those who aren’t learn that they stand out for other reasons. And adapt. And those who don’t pay attention are still slapped around with a sense of ‘being’Continue reading “Personal Blogging – To be recognisable or to be unique?”

Would you date yourself?

Hairdresser wait times. They are a particular timezone all their own, it seems. You’re warped into a bend of time where it starts to crawl so slowly that reading anything becomes acceptable just to make the clock run faster.  Even….. Cosmopolitan (or some shitty how-to-be-a-woman magazine of a similar category). And as I sat thereContinue reading “Would you date yourself?”

Life as a bathtub-book

I have this friend who stays over every now and then. Who, at some point during every sleep-over bravely ventures into my bathroom.(Is there anybody else who has a thing with people going into rooms they don’t normally have people in, that ‘is it clean enough, nothing weird lying around‘ anxiety?). And who apparently, finally,Continue reading “Life as a bathtub-book”
