mortality and love

Deaths, births, family obligations, sacrifice, misunderstandings, lost loves, passive aggressiveness. A bit heavy for my first blog for 2011 but my first 6 days of 2011 have been all about the above. Well not literally … but it seems that the last week or so I’ve been having countless D&M’s (deep and meaningful conversations) with … Continue reading

new years eve. lots of simmering thoughts

It’s 1am on the 31st December 2010 and technically new years eve. I’m having trouble writing this last blog. I have too many thoughts going through my head, most simmering and not yet ready to be served. So I’m going to ramble. And see if anything worthwhile comes up. This time last year … 2010 … Continue reading

the eve before xmas eve. i miss my mum.

The last 5 Christmas’s: 1 in Sydney, 3 in London, 1 in Chamonix. 1 with the family, 4 with friends (and no family). I miss my mum. I miss my family. Ever since I was 17, I’ve always spent one xmas at home, another abroad. Next Christmas at home, the following year abroad. But since … Continue reading

women have ‘dragon colds’ not ‘man colds’

I’m sick. I’ve woken up feeling pretty crappy over the last 2 days. Especially this morning. I woke up feverish, moody and grumpy. So what did I do? I wrote a to-do list of all the things I had been procrastinating. All my personal admin stuff that I hate … reimbursements, calling utility companies, redirecting … Continue reading

saying good bye to 524

I’m sentimental. Always have been, always will be. Not necessarily the type of person to horde stuff but “things” always remind me of people. Food is an obvious one (as per previous my blog). But music, weather, colours, smells, songs, places … can very easily trigger memories of people I love. I left flat 524 … Continue reading

Gainguin, helping me reconicle my masculine and feminine sides

I friend called me out of the blue yesterday. She had 2 free tickets to Gainguin’s “Maker of Myth’s” exhibition at the Tate Modern. I couldn’t say no. Gainguin is one of the world’s most famous artists from Post-Impressionist period and it’s the first time his work has been showcased in the UK in over … Continue reading

taking a leap of faith to micro-niche

I had a HUGE revelation this weekend. I was running Dan’s Social Media weekend as part of our ‘Key Person of Influence’ program and by just being in the room I am subconsciously forced (actually I should say luckily forced) to take on some of his tips and hints about Social Media. Dan spent the … Continue reading

the frustrations with birthdays

Last week I got asked by a friend “what satisfies you in life? … what is your goal?” I was having a dark, depressing self pitying ‘post holiday blues day’ and his question annoyed me … ALOT! It seemed too big for me to answer. He then proceeded to to tell me that ‘it’s not … Continue reading

Post holdiday blues

I feel uninspired to write. I really do. I’ve got post holiday blues and I’m not sure how to snap out of it. I’ve come back from my trip feeling creatively frustrated. I have so many random negative thoughts running through my head and my mind can’t seem to sit still. I can’t seem to … Continue reading

The birth and death of friendships

A boy made me cry last week. I was a little shocked because a) I didn’t know he had that affect on me and b) I can’t remember the last time I cried over a guy. It was weird. The last conversation we had he said “I won’t let you down”. And then he stood … Continue reading
