I work in an office. As such, there is always the little dramas, gossip, stories, and the rumour mill running rampant. Anything you say “in confidence” will more than likely be told to someone else by the end of the day, if not by the end of your sentence. It’s the risk you take day-to-day, … More Defending the women you work with
Let me preface this with I’m veggo. I’ve been vegetarian for nearly 2 years now and not really showing any sign of slowing down. If anything, I’m probably becoming more disturbingly accidentally consciously vegan in my food practices. But I’ll be honest. I like eggs, I love honey, and creamy ice cream is fucking fantastic – … More Not Everyone Should Be Vego/Vegan – an upsetting and controversial stance.
Recently I picked my guitar up again, and bless my housemates, they haven’t complained. I’ve been playing with startling regularity recently that I decided to get a full set up done to my guitar. This meant having the action lowered, neck reset, fret and machine heads cleaned and new strings put on it. Everything my … More Trying to get back in to habits
My workplace is currently undergoing a mental health awareness and respectful relationship overhaul. We as staff are taking all manner of tests to gauge our unconscious bias to better understand what it is and how it affects the judgements we make, without realising it. The tests have been amusing, and every time I gain a … More Unconscious Bias and Respectful Relationships
Now, we know I love my books. They’re my preciouseses and I need them with, around, near and on me at all times. But I have indeed confessed to being a e-reader owner as well. I want to compile a short list of pros and cons for both, and kind of explain how (and why) … More Book Vs E-reader
So, a few weeks ago I underwent a dramatic aesthetic change. I chopped all my hair off. I went from Rapunzel to Flynn Rider… but shorter. Ok, maybe not that suave. Let’s be real for a moment… I look like one of the Stabbington brothers banged Justin Beiber and birthed me. That delightful imagery aside, … More I feel pretty… Oh so pretty! (Another beauty blog!)
We did it. It was a struggle and there were a few miscommunication errors, but we did it. We moved from one side of the city to another in an afternoon. Currently the house is filled to the 11 ft ceiling with boxes and furniture, but we’re slowly unpacking. I foresee a few weekends of … More We Moved… Now to unpack and unburden.
I was recently offered an ongoing position at my job until December. With this came a slight pay increase which was a huge relief. Having made minimum wage my entire life, a slight reprieve from financial terror is enough to make me want to cry. While I’m pretty good with my money, I am planning … More Trying to find a side hustle
Moving is insanely stressful. It’s time-consuming, costs a lot, and is just upsetting half the time. The main thing I hate about it is not having my books everywhere around me. It’s depressing and I hate having to put them in to boxes where anything might happen to them. Maybe that’s just me (it’s totally … More Moving house and the struggle of owning a library
It was back in early February that I last did a fitness check in, and since then I’ve failed spectacularly. I gave up on calorie counting, I stopped going to the gym altogether and my will to look after myself decreased dramatically. I still managed to fit in to the Maid of Honour dress, but … More Another fitness check in
