Writing and Exes

Writing and my ex-boyfriends have one thing in common. I have a love/hate relationship with both of them. When words find me – the feeling is almost orgasmic and nothing in the world can compare. But when they don’t and all I’m left with is a blank screen – the urge the hurl my laptopContinue reading “Writing and Exes”

The Day I Changed My Coffee Order

Change. It’s a daunting word and one that most people tend to forget to incorporate into their personal dictionary. And why would we? We spend such a significant part of our young adulthood trying to form a protective blanket against unforeseen changes that ripping that blanket off seems absurd. Preposterous even. Yet most of usContinue reading “The Day I Changed My Coffee Order”

ASMR – The Internet’s Silent Therapist

Take a look at that picture. Before I discovered ASMR I always assumed a powder brush had one purpose and that was for the sole purpose of powder foundation. Turns out we now live in a time where people have a whole bunch of interesting fetishes ranging from BDSM to standard role-playing because people are gettingContinue reading “ASMR – The Internet’s Silent Therapist”

What No One Tells You About Growing up a Tomboy

The other week as I jumped out of my friend’s ute ( yes you read right) I miscalculated the height of the vehicle and fell down on my palms and knees. Hard. However I was able to get back up and brush off the disturbing amount of the blood gushing out from the scratches, withContinue reading “What No One Tells You About Growing up a Tomboy”

Thoughts That You’ll Inevitably Have as a Rookie Indoor Rock Climbing Enthusiast

Growing up little girls almost always fell into two categories: You’d have your ‘girly girls’ who loved nothing more than to play house-wife with their little kitchen set and chucky lookin babies. Next, you’d have the ‘tomboys’ who loved nothing more than to run around the building in their sneakers playing tag and wrestling otherContinue reading “Thoughts That You’ll Inevitably Have as a Rookie Indoor Rock Climbing Enthusiast”

Thoughts That You’ll Inevitably Have During Your First f45 Training Session

Dirty Laundry

We all have that small collection of moments that we keep deeply hidden because they aren’t deemed ‘appropriate’ by society, ranging from those wild nights with the girls or embarrassing situations that you somehow always managed to end up in as a clueless teenager.

All Work and No Play?

They say if you love what you do then you will never work a day in your life, however I couldn’t help but wonder how much of today’s materialistic influence jaded that perspective.
