Everybody’s (Not) Working For The Weekend….

As I briefly referenced, but didn’t really explain in my previous posts, I’ve found myself suddenly unemployed. As a freelancer, it’s hard to be “unemployed”. You understand there are times when you’ll have more work than you can handle, and other times when the jobs aren’t there. However, my time working as a freelance writer […]

It’s Not Craziness, It’s Just Life….

“I often think about Where I went wrong; The more I do, The less I know. But I know I have a fickle heart, And a bitterness, And a wandering eye, And a heaviness in my head.” —Adele, “Don’t You Remember?” Today was yet another extraordinarily stressful day, waiting to see what’s going to happen […]

Thoughts On Mortality, Regret, And Love….

For those who don’t follow me on Facebook, it’s been a particularly tough two days for me. I’m trying to be as strong as I can, to tough things out, but honestly, I realise I’m not a strong or tough person in a lot of ways. I’ve been fortunate in that I’ve survived some dark […]

On Not Being Socially Fearless…

“There once was a woman who had one hundred faces. She showed one face to each person, and so it took one hundred men to write her biography”. —Anais Nin I must say, people end up on my page looking for some bizarre, dark, and morbid things. My analytics program has told me that recently, […]

A Little Of This, A Little Of That….

I meant to spend some time posting a well-crafted update on here today, but instead, I spent a lot of my writing energy sending e-mail to friends and actually doing work, which is important, too. So, although I know you’re all devastated, part two of yesterday’s story is simply going to have to wait. (yes, […]

A Life Less Ordinary: Day #6

One of my long-time favourite bloggers, the charming Gala Darling, has started a frank and open dialogue on her blog this week about body image issues, and how the media affects how we perceive ourselves and others, and how the blogosphere is as much of a culprit in the war against self-acceptance as any other […]

A Life Less Ordinary: Day #5

“Infatuation is the state of being completely carried away by unreasoned passion or love: ‘expresses the headlong libidinal attraction‘ of addictive love. Usually, one is inspired with an intense but short-lived passion or admiration for someone.” ~ Wikipedia Day #5: Infatuated, by Pink Butterfly Of Death *~ Embrace Infatuation *~ I’m a big fan of […]

A Life Less Ordinary: Day #2

I’m the kind of person that naturally gets bored and feels uninspired if I stay put for too long. I’m not sure why; it isn’t that I don’t have the capacity to be happy or content. Sometimes, I even value the feeling of safety and security that “home” offers me, and there’s nothing I’d rather […]

Looking At The World Through Different Glasses

One thing I’ve come to notice about life is that it’s very easy for it to become routine. In fact, most of what a majority of us spend our days doing are the things with which we’re the most comfortable, often to the point that if we’re not paying careful attention, our lives end up […]
