Road to success

The ‘success’-reel that is Social Media has been an ongoing topic (of complaints) for as long as Social Media have been a thing. The constant overflow of happy moments, with little (or no) attention to the failures, dark moments and ‘really seriously wrong’ things in the lives of those involved keep causing ruckus when itContinue reading “Road to success”

Personal Blogging – The I-thing

One of the lessons about writing that’s stuck with me throughout my entire writing career (even though calling my writing endeavors a career is very ambitious) is a very simple one. You should not start a sentence with I. Not only does it apparently feel like an eyesore – it also quickly turns repetitive, isContinue reading “Personal Blogging – The I-thing”

Insanity

They say…That trying the same thing…Over and over again…But expecting different results…Is insanity.But then why is it…That when I gave you my heart…I gave you all of it…No holds barred.Even though I knew…Even though I see…Even though the past has shown…That it’s not meant to be…Mine.Or ours.Or Anyones at All…Because love?Real…honest…and true love…?It’s just theContinue reading “Insanity”

Wee smirk

Man, I’m a sucker for accents. Totally and completely smitten with people who take sounding charming-as-fuck to the next level by putting a special layer of awesome on every word they speak. It’s probably a remnant from my youth-trauma, growing up as ‘a Limburger‘. Limburg, for the Non-Dutch out there…is a province round here inContinue reading “Wee smirk”

Try Again

There’s so much we can learn from games and sports, I think. They’re a reflection of life, in a lot of ways. Although I’m kinda obligated to say that since I’ve already written a bunch of posts of ‘things I learned through playing games like Candy Crush‘ (or skating, or playing softball, or tennis). AndContinue reading “Try Again”

Resolutionizing – May

Did we make it through the snow and drizzle? I sure fucking hope so!The massive sunburn I got yesterday when playing my first baseball-match (a 10-3 victorrrrryyyyy!) of the year-post-corona definitely suggests we might be on the road to better weather. And with better weather, come better moods. At least, for me. I’m a totalContinue reading “Resolutionizing – May”

It matters, doesn’t it?

Another meetingAnother dayAnother procedureAnother playWhat were you saying again?I was thinking about how being gorgeous works…When beauty is supposed to be in the eye of the beholder…But society paints the picture That those eyes are taking in.Another meetingAnother dayAnother roundaboutAnother wayWhat were you implying again?I was thinking about how being loved works…When your heart isContinue reading “It matters, doesn’t it?”

Allergies

They say that the things that bother you the most about other people… The things that make you ‘clash’ with others… The things that you can’t deal with from opposite parties… Are the things strongly represented in your own personality. Positively, or negatively so. Your ‘allergies’ when it comes to human interaction – can beContinue reading “Allergies”

The right tools

I pride myself in being a strong and independent woman. I do. And not in one of those fierce sjw over the top excruciatingly force-feminism-down-your-throat kind of ways. But in a show-rather-than-tell kind of way. And to me – being strong and independent often manifests itself in a very obvious way: my intense desire toContinue reading “The right tools”
