Last week I took a much-needed holiday. When I was growing up, my family would get together every year and caravan to the desert and camp out together. So. Last week was my pilgrimage.

Who Am I?

I've had much going on, therefore many thoughts swimming 'round on what to write. I'm going to dither over what to say and give you the usual rubbish about the thoughts being all jammed up and not knowing where to start. So I might as well get that out of the way. *rolls eyes* I have so many thoughts, I don't know where to start. Here's a little mention on what's been going on in general with me.

10 Things That Were Wrong With My First Cars and How Looking Back, It Wasn’t So Bad

January 6, 2015

When I was a teenager with a shiny new license to drive, I didn’t have the best of luck with the automobiles I got stuck with. No pick-up, noisy, smelly, tricky, hazardous, leaky, inoperative cars. But it's cool...

I realise it has been almost a year since I’ve posted anything, and I have often given myself the little tap on the shoulder, urging myself to write.  But I have not had the desire.  And I’ve been occupied with other matters.  But I’ve found a little time today, and truly, I’ve missed you.  I […]

I wish I was a little bit taller I wish I was a baller… I wish my hair was a little bit longer, y’all

Wow… It’s been a while.  I have been exceedingly busy lately, what with taking 4 classes and holding two jobs.  I’ve scarce had time for anything else.  Right now, I am sitting with a bowl of quinoa, fueling up for a run and I’m on here…. neglecting homework (really bad idea… there are tests today). […]

My Closet Tells Me I Am Not a Grown Up

Today is the day that we take off for the conference.  Mah boy will be here at 9am to pick me up.  I didn’t start packing until this morning.  Standing in my closet, looking at my selection of clothes and trying to decide what to wear this week… I realise that my wardrobe is not […]

The Honeymoon Survival Kit

I had no direction whatsoever. I went into the first store and aimlessly meandered, hoping something would jump off the shelf, screaming at me. That didn't happen. I spent a good 45 minutes in there, stumped. Frustrated, I decided to go elsewhere and try to at least find the trunk I would need to put the gift in.... while I was there, I was flooded with ideas.

Tuesday Night Nothings

So I pretty much shot myself in the foot this evening.  I’ve some information to study for tomorrow’s quiz in the morning and had myself a pre-dinner booze-drink [didn’t have much to eat earlier today], as well as a….. concurrent(?) dinner drink.  Don’t judge me; my words don’t come so quick (or correct) right now.  […]

I took out my green earplugs. I rolled one between my thumb and fingers until it was tight, then I finessed it into my ear canal and waited for it to expand. Deaf in one ear, I repeated the process with the other plug and blocked my residual hearing. Now fully deaf, I turned to my classmate and she handed me her scarf. I put on my sunglasses and then tied the scarf around my head, over them. I was now completely blind. Deaf, blind and utterly alone....

A Magical Experience

Over the weekend, I got to experience a natural beauty and wonder.  Went with some friends to the coast and camped on the beach.  We sat around the campfire and talked.  I had noticed the waves looked rather bright, but I figured the caps were reflecting off the moon (not realizing at the time that […]

A Bit of Catch-Up

My ramblings of the things that have been occupying the time between studies and work and the like. Highlights of the good times. Basically what I've been doing, that I can't seem to write on my blog for an aeon. Okay, I'm being dramatic. ...... This post is a whole lot of word vomit.

It feels like I've been away forever; I haven't written any really meaningful posts here in a long time and I'm sorry to say that this one is not one of those. Instead, this will be an explanation of why I've been away...

"Like an express train, barreling down the tracks, it hit me. I should be more like my dog." What I learnt from my dog about being mindful and conscious and how you can add mindfulness to your days.
