On happiness – in general, in particular and in total and utter honesty

I hail from the Al Bundy era.Something that I’m simultaneously proud and secretly ashamed of, I guess. Those were the days, folks, those were the days. These days that show, to many, is a desperate reminder of all that was once wrong with the world. Or still is, in many ways. A shining example ofContinue reading “On happiness – in general, in particular and in total and utter honesty”

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”

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”

Cliched Epiphanies

Me and the loverboy were watching Thor this weekend – after deciding to do a Marvel binge which has us watching all the movies in (timeline) order. Which is awesome. Cause I love Marvel. Not just for the actionpacked (and sixpacked) storylines, but also because they manage to slip in some braincracking gems and moralsContinue reading “Cliched Epiphanies”

It’s in the details

I’ve never been one of those ‘the big picture‘ type of people. That’s a specialty and mindset that you either possess, or don’t I think – that way of seeing beyond your immediate vicinity and placing things in a grander context. Most people, admittedly, are just stuck in their own ‘little’ world. Myself? I tendContinue reading “It’s in the details”

Simple Solutions

Life, as a teacher, tends to offer a plethora of lessons. And most of those, I find, are quite similar. Life is hard. Life is complicated. Life ain’t straightforward. Life is messy, and chaotic. Painful and unfair and anything but under your control. Sometimes, though – you start to realize that life might not beContinue reading “Simple Solutions”

Peeptoes

Two days this week. Two days that I got to dress in normal clothes. Put on normal (instead of bad lighting and Microsoft Teams) make-up. And speak to normal (relatively 😈😈), actual, real life people. It’s kinda shocking how ‘odd’ that feels after the year we’ve had. And how much I did-not-hate having to getContinue reading “Peeptoes”
