What is this Madness? Week One of Exercising

Fear not, people! This is not going to turn into a turbo-fitness blog where I discuss macros, and the latest spin fad. But seriously, I want to share how proud I am of myself for completing one whole week of exercise. It may not seem like much to regular gym goers, but with my wacky… Continue reading What is this Madness? Week One of Exercising


Pre-New Years Resolution

I have never been an individual to make New Years' resolutions. Partly because I despise New Years and how everyone thinks it magically wipes away everything of the last year (it's just an arbitrary turning of a calendar page, in my eyes), and partly because I never felt I had major things I wanted to… Continue reading Pre-New Years Resolution

You're probably thinking, "Lady! Stop with all the mysteries! Read something else for gouda's sake!" Well, I did read something else, but I listened to more mysteries. Changing the medium definitely counts as a different thing, right? My friend recommended the podcast, Up and Vanished, to me several weeks ago. Series One has been… Continue reading Mystery in Multiple Mediums: Up & Vanished


Hello from the Other Side…

... of exams and tests! Finished another unit, and now a whole other year of uni. It's scary to think in under a year, I'll have finished my degree and will have to actually be a semi-adult. AAH! Tina reflects so many of my emotions. I had to return the book I was reading to… Continue reading Hello from the Other Side…
