Looking Weak? Not For Me

As I pushed myself through the pain I had an epiphany about myself that I already knew… I have an issue with looking weak. I write this as I lie on the couch licking my wounds. You see, I just came back from a gym class called power step (stepping up and down and all…

How I Got Over My Phone Phobia

*Spoiler*… I didn’t. ‘Right, OK, calm down, you just need to make an appointment’. I stare at my phone, heart pumping, mildly hyperventilating as I hit dial. I pull my phone to my ear and all I feel is white noise overcoming my system. I get a jolt of adrenaline when the person on the…

What It’s Like Always Being The Foreigner

The thing about being the person who is ‘not really from here’ is that you don’t fit in a defined box – you jump in and out and walk along the borders or dance between the lines. But I think that is pretty great. Yes the title is true, I am a nomad… kinda. Before…

Couch Potato: I’ve Fallen Off The Wagon

Guys, it happened. For the past three or so weeks I have been INCREDIBLY Lazy and unmotivated to do anything except lounge around the house (a.k.a. lying on my couch under a blanket). Now, if you don’t know, I love my couch… too much…if you would like some context you can read I Confess. I’m…

[Review] Please Don’t Hire Me, I’m Scared.

Adulting. We Are Just Children Inside

Whenever I’ve been asked how to adult. I have only one answer…’food goes in here’ *points at my mouth*. “We are all just children inside.” This is something my Dad said to me a long time ago.*Waves* Hi Dad. See, I do pay attention! I was leaning on the train carriage wall the other day…

This Couch Potato Has Been Gyming

ALAS! At 25, my metabolism has started slowing down. In the last year I noticed that I was gaining some weight. Nothing too major or obvious, but my trousers felt tighter and I now have love handles. Though, I will say that there is an obvious benefit to gaining weight, which is… I don’t get…

My Work’s Elevators Prove We Are Living In A Simulation?

So, this thing happened at work that I still can’t comprehend. One morning at 7.50-ish am I was walking to the building where I work. The ground floor reception has large glass windows that span almost the length of the wall. Each morning I have a habit of looking through these glass windows to check…

Diary of a Doctor’s Wife. Things That Go Bump in the Night (2)

*THUD* What the f**k was that? Since living on my own during the week, I have become much more paranoid of noises. And when I do hear them, there is a moment where I imagine a masked, knife wielding intruder in the house. This. Has. Never. Happened. And I hope it never does! It better…
