"No! Mum! Why?!" I wake up, thrashing, ripping the covers that have entwined themselves around my neck. It was just a dream, this time. I can still feel the phantom touch of her failing grip on mine; the passing of time has worn away her face from my memory but never those last few seconds of … Continue reading Writing Prompt: Death has been eradicated. War, however, has not.
I've written this short story while listening to Clair de Lune from the Suite bergamasque, and I feel like it should be read while listening to the song. I hope you enjoy it. (P.S. The header image is from wallpapercave.com.) He walked slowly through the snow, making sure not to mar the other footprints with his own, occasionally jumping … Continue reading Non-Zero November ’16 – Day 4 – Clair de Lune
At 10:50am today I had an appointment at the gynecology ward to discuss the possible return of my Endometriosis. I walked into the waiting room thirty minutes early (as usual - I'm always early for healthcare appointments, just in case) and I actually got called in early. I was lead to a room where I would … Continue reading Futon Thoughts: I went to the hospital today
It's raining outside. I'm writing to you from the futon in my spare room, whilst leaning against some thoughtfully arranged cushions and pillows, with a blanket in arms reach and a hot chocolate on the way. I will add that I was literally carried in here by my boyfriend and unceremoniously dumped onto the pile … Continue reading Futon thoughts
So, a while ago I wrote about Project PYFO. It was an attempt to stop me from being lazy and actually get my life sorted out. Of course, being the lazy so-and-so I am, it didn't really take off. However... things have changed since then. On Monday 4th July, I start my new job. The … Continue reading Project PYFO: Things have changed
I'm 27 years old at the time of writing this. It looks like I won't have a mortgage by the time I reach 30. I can't decide whether the career route I'm in is right for me. I suffer from Hyper-mobility, meaning my joints ache a lot of the time. I don't exercise, I'm unfit … Continue reading Project: PYFO
It's been a while. Again. I'm not great at the consistency thing on here, apparently and I want that to change. I want to be known as a blogger and I want people to enjoy reading my work. I want to discuss things that are important to me and share my interests with anyone who … Continue reading Oh, hey there!
All throughout my childhood up until age 19, I knew what I wanted to be when I "grew up". Don't get me wrong - it changed a lot. One year I wanted to be a policewoman. The next I wanted to be a fashion designer. There was probably a point where I wanted to be … Continue reading I Think I Get It Now
It's Friday again. I missed a one or two (I can't remember) but I have a cracking song (and artist) for you this week. I had heard this a few months ago from a friend, but found it again today as a related artist, while listening to Malukah (see my previous Frisson Friday post about … Continue reading Frisson Friday: Christopher Tin
What to talk about today? It really was a standard day and nothing interesting happened... Oooh, wait! OK, so, to get home I have to cross a fairly busy road. Today was the first time in about 2 weeks a car (or four) didn't run the red light as I was waiting to cross! The … Continue reading Today was a good day
