Goodbye, 2017!

This dumpster fire of a year is finally over. When I dubbed 2017 the “Year of New Beginnings”, I had a lot of changes planned, some of which I implemented and others which I didn’t get around to. So now, on the last day of the year, I am yet again sitting here, wishing I’d […]

13 Facts About Me

There was a get-to-know-me meme going around twitter a couple of nights ago, where for every like / favourite, you’d tweet a random fact about yourself, and I thought I’d post mine here as well, in lieu of a proper introductory post: #1 These days, I get sorted into Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw pretty much equally, […]

Another Night Lost

After having spent all day cleaning the bathroom top to bottom, I was knackered yesterday and decided to have an early night. That’s how I found myself in bed at quarter past ten, still wide awake. I figured it wasn’t an issue, what with it still being slightly light outside. I settled in to check […]

Last Night ― A Summary

10 pm: Not tired at all. 11 pm: Still not tired, decide to watch an old favourite film (Twister). 12 am: Realise film is too exciting to encourage sleep. 1 am: Bed. Read for half an hour because still not tired. 2 am: Lie awake. Get up to pee. Lie awake some more. 3 am: […]

Nine Days In

One of my “resolutions” for 2017, as it were, was to blog more. Now we’re nine days into the year, and it’s taken me until now to even start typing up a post. One reason for the slow start is that I’ve been having some trouble thinking in English lately. It’s an odd feeling if […]

So, 2017…

I’ve already written up my year in retrospect, eight pages of it in my bullet journal, but most of that is too personal to put it up online. And since I don’t really do resolutions, I can’t list those here, either. But I do have a to-do list of sorts, stuff I know I need […]

A Message

Dear blog, It’s been nearly a year since I last updated you, and for that, I am sorry, and I vow to do better this coming year. Since it’s only the 16th, it’s not quite time for an end-of-the-year post, but I don’t actually have all that much to say about 2016 anyway. 2017, on […]

Last Day of the Year

Yet again—for the third or so time this week—, I have found myself unable to sleep. So now I’m sitting on my couch at four in the morning with a cup of tea whose tea bag tells me to ‘live with respect for yourself and others’, and I realised I still hadn’t started writing the […]

Very Nearly 2013

When I dubbed 2012 the ‘Year of Travel’, I knew what I was talking about. In fact, I’ve come to like this tradition of trying to predict what the coming year’s theme will be. 2010 was, beyond the shadow of a doubt, my ‘Year of Independence’. It was my first full year living away from […]
