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”

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”

It’s in the details

I’ve never been one of those ‘the big picture‘ type of people.

But gaming has always also highlighted some of my talents, next to theseContinue reading “Art of the Grind”

Opposite Utility

The knife-block in my kitchen has a ‘bad‘ knife in it. Something I regularly find out when I end up trying to staunch the bleeding from the umpteenth cut it’s cost me. Stupid knife. I’m not saying that it’s bad in a badboy kinda way, obviously. It doesn’t drive a motorcycle without a helmet, orContinue reading “Opposite Utility”

Set(ting yourself) up to Fail.

Life often throws us challenges that we can either buckle up for and endure, or succumb to. Life, in that sense is unforgiving. It’s a do or die situation all day, every day and when it’s sink or swim your options are very limited. But we, as a species, seem to have come to theContinue reading “Set(ting yourself) up to Fail.”
