Shock and awe

No, it’s definitely not as dramatic as the correct military term, but to be fair, it is as eventful for me to be in complete shock and awe about what’s been going on in 2015 so far. A while ago I did write about going for a job interview at an interior design company, where … Continue reading

Wait. How did that happen?

So about 2 weeks ago I celebrated my 36th birthday. A Tuesday. I ended up taking that day off, simply because I can. The week prior I had a week off, not to go on holiday and visit some exotic place – no, I went back to school for a few days. Sort of try … Continue reading

Broken record

Mea culpa, I haven’t posted anything for so long, but I was starting to sound like a broken record. Tired, bored, bored beyond belief, exhausted, still very much on the job hunt. Honestly reading back a few posts and you pretty much get the gist of things. As I’ve sudden been taken down by a … Continue reading

Appreciation of the contemporary.

When I was younger, say my teens, I did not like many of the contemporary artists I was taught in art history class. I simply did not like most of them, nor care for their work. The only one I think I managed to really love were Van Gogh and Matisse, the latter especially during … Continue reading

Lofty aspirations.

One day I will live in a detached house, just so I will not get any homicidal tendencies towards my neighbours. Especially when the dreaded DIY-bug strikes, or when they feel the need to share their music. “No, I do not need to feel the bass, nor wish to be included in your experience.” As … Continue reading

15 minutes

Infamy infamy! They’ve all got it in for me! Fame. I’m a bit bewildered and bemused by our modern society’s desire for fame. In some cases not even a mere desire, but a real hunger. When you ask kids from a certain age what they’d want to be, quite a few of them will say … Continue reading

That thing called love…

Like I’ve posted on Valentine’s Day, I’m completely clueless when it comes to the matters of the heart. As a matter of fact I haven’t even been in love for too-many-years-to-count now. Sure, had a crush here or two, but the sheer definition of a crush is its fleeting nature. Nothing too serious about it. … Continue reading

Happy Valentine!

Let’s be honest here, when it comes to the matters of the heart I am absolutely clueless. It has me completely schtumped. Hopeless. It shouldn’t come as a great surprise. Surely. Then again I don’t think I’m the only person on the planet, who is rather clueless in this area.

On reflection…

An odd question to ask perhaps. How do you view yourself? I’m always very puzzled by my own, even though I am fully aware my perception differs from how I am perceived by others. I was raised to not rely on anything but what goes on in my head. I’d be judged on my gender, … Continue reading

A play’s a play.

Tonight I got the chance to see the live broadcasting of Coriolanus presented by the National Theatre. Despite the proximity of London, it is a very costly trip to make just for a play, so only next time when I find myself in London town for other reasons will I go to the theatre and … Continue reading

Catfish!

No, not the weird looking fish, which in itself is something else. No, no, I’m talking about the phenomenon to catfish. “A catfish is someone who pretends to be someone they’re not using Facebook or other social media to create false identities, particularly to pursue deceptive online romances.” Once in a while, I spot the … Continue reading

Distance

Distance

Sometimes we need to put some distance between us and whatever that is bothering us. Just to put things in perspective, we tend to get lost in the nitty gritty, all of a sudden a little distance makes it far more easier. Otherwise it’s just a well deserved break from the frustration of staring at … Continue reading

Gone fishin’

Well no, not literally, but I did get to have that truly dreadful experience of shaking a limpy hand. A wet noodle. A dead fish. Either one of them could have easily sufficed.No, honestly, dreadul. I’m not the most touchy-feely person ever, I only give hugs & kisses to those that truly matter to me. … Continue reading

Why I fail as a blogger.

Why I fail as a blogger.

Or the multiple reasons why I’m simply too distracted to be bothered about it. If you were expecting something profound to happen, whoa, whatever lead you to believe that would happen here?! You’d have to wait a very long time! At the moment you’re lucky enough not to be inundated by cute animal videos. 😉  … Continue reading
