Twisted Nerve

Anyone else spend a fair portion of their life worrying that they're not a good person? I think I question this every day at least once but when drama occurs the feeling hits me tenfold and I go all floppy with inertia. Like, why am I bothering, I'm the worst, I might as well give… Continue reading Twisted Nerve

Cry for the Bad Man

Ugh. Some days no matter what you do, things just won't go your way. One thing can throw you off or get under your skin and then suddenly you're sobbing for every bad thing that ever happened to you. That was me this morning, Wasting perfectly good make-up on something (and someone) insignificant but also… Continue reading Cry for the Bad Man

FOMO Oh No

I'm anti-social. Honestly, if I were left to my own devices I'd be a full-time hermit living on Cloud 9, never going out and having all my meals and necessities delivered to my door.

Anxiety 1, Voluptuous 0

I had a panic attack yesterday morning and had to come home from work. I lay down until it passed and then watched The Conjuring with a cup of tea and a banging headache. I'm off again today with the same headache but really it was frightening and I still feel out of sorts. Even… Continue reading Anxiety 1, Voluptuous 0

Blue Monday

Here it is, the single most depressing day of the entire year. I mean there are reasons to kick against it, to say "Fuck this, not today, Satan" but when it's violently windy outside and your umbrella gets blown inside out 0.2 seconds after stepping out of the door, it's hard to be strong. Plus,… Continue reading Blue Monday
