Today I’m driving to the land down under. Which in this particular case is the beautiful Limburg that holds my roots (-small barf-). And though I’ve managed to destruct most of the accent that gets a person laughed at on a daily basis – I do still venture down there every once in a whileContinue reading “Best car ever.”

There’s things to consider when you’re (planning to be) getting back on the horse. The horse, in this case, being a new partner (winkwinknudgenudge). It’s not just the dating, the tentative getting-to-know-someone questions, the awkward routine-discoveries (seriously, I once knew a guy who brushed his teeth every time he’d eat something….which was quite often) andContinue reading “Bed Battles”
The Heart-Brain divide
The heart and brain have a tendency of pulling a person in different directions. More often than not, these directions also happen to be entirely opposite to each other – just to make it ‘easier’. Trying to rationalize matters of the heart is nigh impossible – and putting your heart in things that don’t rationallyContinue reading “The Heart-Brain divide”
The invisible me
Sometimes I wonder how much of my life is made up out of habits – instead of necessities (for survival). How much of my actions are governed merely by the fact that I’m used to their specific execution and routines, instead of me actually ‘needing’ them to reach my goals and fulfilment. How much ofContinue reading “The invisible me”
A different ballgame
Dating is hard as balls. No pun intended. It is. Not just because I’m in my 30s and have already plundered Tinder. Not just because I’m a girl that (really really) doesn’t want kids and likes her career. Not because I don’t do the happy family thing and suck at household chores or can’t cookContinue reading “A different ballgame”
The Wind (or Tornado) of Change.
If you believe the interwebs (which I obviously always do!) – everything in your body is replaced in a seven-year time span with cells dying and regenerating. Something that is rumored to be on the basis of your taste in foods changing every so often – which is why you can HATE the taste ofContinue reading “The Wind (or Tornado) of Change.”
The world we live in these days might be a lot simpler in a lot of ways – but in that increased simplicity…there is also a loss of depth that I sometimes lament. Love is ever increasingly becoming a virtual concept, I feel – and it’s the physicality of it that I sometimes find myselfContinue reading “Breakup Bonfires”
On Self-Worth and Choices.
There’s moments of reflection that are inevitable at the points in your life where you decide on your course for the future. I had one of them only this week.An epiphany, one might say. I strongly feel that understanding the patterns and decisions that lead up to these moments are the only true way forward.Continue reading “On Self-Worth and Choices.”
I have a slight dramatic streak. And when I say ‘slight’, I add in that word just to make it sound a little less…dramatic. Because (and I’ve always blamed this on the fact that I’m a ‘writer’ because that sounds a lot better than being emotionally unstable) I have a tendency to draw everything intoContinue reading “Christmassy Happiness”
Cheers to fresh starts!
To share or not to share – that has always been a question for me. To say I’m an open book is an insane understatement, something which (in the past) has worked FOR me almost as much as it has worked against me. I write about me. All of me. Without excuses. About my life,Continue reading “Cheers to fresh starts!”
