Adventures in dating part seven.

There are some of my dating adventures that I have never told anyone. They are the “You Know Who” of my dating life. I’m afraid to speak them out loud into existence. If I pretend they didn’t happen then maybe they didn’t. Another reason why I don’t tell some of these stories is because they…

Stop looking for motivation and just do it already.

I’m in several weight loss and fitness groups on Facebook and because of this, there are a few posts in my newsfeed that annoy me each day. And it might not be the posts that you’d think I would find annoying. I see about 10-20 posts per day in these groups of people asking for…

Completely realistic dreams of mine.

-A small localised asteroid hits my father’s house and wipes it out entirely. All nearby houses and buildings are left untouched. I don’t want to say that I’d wish he’d die in a plane crash because that would be unfair to the other passengers and the pilot. Probably even just thinking that puts me on…

Mourning the friendship that once was.

Ashes to ashes. Dust to dust. We are gathered here today to mourn the friendship that once was. In this relationship, my shallow heart is the only thing that’s been beating for a long time. We were once the best of friends and soon all I’ll be to you is “new phone who dis?” I…

27 life lessons that I’ve learned in 26 years

Since I meant to write this and upload it on my actual birthday (September 2nd), it’s safe to assume that I love to procrastinate. Procrastination is fun but it doesn’t get shit done. Everyone makes bad decisions (like procrastinating) sometimes. We all get caught up in making the right choice. Sure, it sucks to make…

Sometimes you just have to break the rules.

Get ready, friends because I am about to tell you a story that is as wild, wet and wooly as a beaver standing outside in the rain this morning. It involves a PSA for being aware that some other people require facilities, how I’m impatient and ignore some clearly stated rules and ends with me…

A woman’s woman.

I’ve always been a woman’s woman since the very first time I heard the Spice Girls talking about girl powers. Since that first time Ginger Spice flashed me a peace sign, I knew that I would always try to support and protect other women. I’m the kind of woman’s woman who will tell a stranger…

Adventures in dating part 6.

A not so indecent proposal. This is the story of the closest that I’ve ever come (and probably the closest I will ever come) to having a sugar daddy. It will come of no surprise to you that I met this man on tinder. It’s a great app. Five out of seven. And honestly, I’m…

Non-scale victories that nobody tells you about.

When you lose weight, there are some accomplishments that you can look forward to that aren’t determined by the number on the scale. These can include such happy moments like- Feeling confident enough to wear a cute bikini or, for those of you like me, whose skin hisses at the sun- a cute one piece…

How to deal when your boyfriend’s friends don’t like you

Now, it might just be me. You could say that overthinking situations is my favourite past-time. If overthinking things were an Olympic event, I wouldn’t even need to train. I’d breeze past all you bitches straight to the gold medal. At that point, you’d start looking at me and wonder how I managed such an…

Secrets of a former fat girl

People always ask me how I did it. The answer is, I don’t know. One day it all just seemed to click into place. But today I want to talk about former fat girl confessions. If I’m gonna tell it, then I’m gonna tell it all. That weird thinking that seems to follow me throughout…
