Breach the walls

You slipped in unnoticed, Through a tiny crack – in the walls I’d so carefully kept. Took up your space, In a heart unbroken – Unphased by its limitations. Then left chaos in your wake, as you tore down those walls, and left behind a gaping void – in a heart now framed in jaggedContinue reading “Breach the walls”

Tinder Tales – Darn those algorithms!

These days I’m taking a very business-like approach to online dating. Currently, to me, it’s much like household-work, or administrative work or obligatory family visits. A chore. Something that has to be done. A box to tick on the to-do list of the day. ‘Swipe right on (at least) three guys‘. And I do thatContinue reading “Tinder Tales – Darn those algorithms!”

Time for another heartbreak?!

There is something that worries me lately. Although, I guess, worry is a big word. But it’s something that I do think about every now and then: What if I lose ‘my writing’? You see, I started this blog in august, suffering from the worst heartbreak my heart has ever (and hopefully will ever) suffered.Continue reading “Time for another heartbreak?!”

Personal Blogging – The personal touch

The ‘Personal blogging‘ series here on this little blog o’mine affords me THE perfect opportunity to tell you, my readers and the rest of the world my views on blogging (aka: the why, and how and when of it). It’s not a ‘how-to‘ blog manual in any sense of the word, although I do hopeContinue reading “Personal Blogging – The personal touch”

Lizard Brain: Impostor syndrome

This week was the most DREADED yet at the same time EXCITING week of the entire year for me (corona notwithstanding). Huge. HUMONGOUS. Over the top dramatically epically important. A career-maker or breaker (or well, at least it was, in my head). A week that I spent two months working my ass off for, andContinue reading “Lizard Brain: Impostor syndrome”

Some peace and…clarity?

Is that too much to ask? Somehow I think I missed an exit somewhere to the great barren land of isolation that my grandma (and pretty much the entire world of blogging) seems to have wandered into since the descent of ‘the big C’. Because as it currently stands, I am busier than ever. MoreContinue reading “Some peace and…clarity?”

TMI – The Libido-switch

It’s been 38 days, 20 hours, 12 minutes and some random configuration of seconds ago. Not that I was counting. But I used to be counting, and I am definitely counting now. Because I stopped counting. If that makes sense (it probably doesn’t). First of all – a TMI warning. This particular blog is goingContinue reading “TMI – The Libido-switch”

Pokémagic

Remember that post I did a while back on how I was super unexpectedly connecting over Pokémon Go with a colleague (jezus, was that already almost two months ago?)? After which I got straight back into being a Poké-addict, even putting my friend code in my footer and joining a PokéGo-forum? Doesn’t matter!! Because noContinue reading “Pokémagic”

A simple sum

So about this ‘alone’ business…Do you even know how lonely it is?Having to spend each night by yourself…When there’s only one thing you miss? I mean, I am (of course) great company….And it doesn’t really take all that much to see…That when it comes to myself….I don’t mind it being just me. Except for theContinue reading “A simple sum”

No Ragrets!

Regret: feel sad, repentant, or disappointed over (something that one has done or failed to do).Mistake: an act or judgement that is misguided or wrong. Apparently it’s the week of ‘tell Zoë she’s wrong about things!‘ (which, to be fair, is not one-week-a-year-occurrence) with people feeling the need to express their wisdom to me. Unrequested,Continue reading “No Ragrets!”
