Same mistakes

I had a talk with my manager today about my progress and learning curve in my new job. It was a good talk. Way more positive than I’d pictured it beforehand (damn impostor syndrome) and a great clarification on my results these past few months. You see – when it comes to my new endeavorsContinue reading “Same mistakes”

Damn ‘Rona

A little sparrow flew into my living room French doors today. Not because they’re so impeccably clean that you think they might be open, mind you, because I am a lot of things in life, but not a frequent window-cleaner.

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?!”

Play your cards right

It could have been so different.It should have been so different.My heart knows it. My soul believes it.It is nothing but a solemn truth. If only the world had been different.If only we had been different.They knew it. We never believed it.But it was always an undeniable truth. If only it had been a differentContinue reading “Play your cards right”
