The wonderings of an overcrowded mind… 

I wish I could be bored

I wish I could be bored

“I’m bored!” Was pretty much the chorus of my childhood… I’m sure my mum got sick of hearing it, but there it was “I’m bored!” I was a loner though, I didn’t like playing out with the other kids, I wanted to be inside. I didn’t particularly want them at my house all...

Sometimes, I’m just a really clever idiot.

Sometimes, I’m just a really clever idiot.

It’s what causes me to overcomplicate things in my life. Something that could be SUPER SIMPLE ends up needing a degree to figure it out. Or something that could be done in 2 steps, takes me 5. Sometimes, it’s having facepalmingly obvious “realisations” Like when you...

Fear Itself

Fear Itself

Alright, I was obsessed with Buffy back in the day, and still love to watch the reruns now… so, lemme ask you this? Do you remember the episode “Fear Itself”? Season 4 Episode 4, now, if you never watched Buffy what the hell have you been doing with your life?...

Motivation vs. Motive

Motivation vs. Motive

What’s the difference? Why is that important? Look for your MOTIVE Motivation is Bullshit, I covered that one a few years ago. We spend our lives waiting for motivation… because when it does, we’ll finally hit the gym, lose weight, go that place, do that thing, etc,...

Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do

Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do

People always say that to me. It’s like a warning. Oh Please, I spend my life doing things you wouldn’t do! It's a warning to behave myself. Act according to their definition of how life should be led. Not one thing about the way they live their life appeals to me....

You gotta let go sometime

You gotta let go sometime

It’s safe, right? Holding onto the safety net. The rope that balances you, keeps you steady… catches you when you fall. It’s safe Its safe to stay where you are so things don’t get messed up Its safe to keep doing the same things on repeat because you know the outcome...

Only self-deprecating people are good people…

Only self-deprecating people are good people…

“Really, I’m not that good.” “It’s just a fluke… “ “No, really, you’re better than me! “ “Don’t be silly, you’re amazing. “ “You’re so much better at it than me! “ “Oh my gosh, no, please, stop… “ No, really, please STOP!!!! For the love of all things lovable, STOP...

It’s not (just) you, It’s me (too)

It’s not (just) you, It’s me (too)

Do you ever notice that you constantly compare yourself to whoever's nearby? It's not just you, it's me too... in fact, it's a lot of us - the majority of us. We look at those we know, the people we meet, we figure out how old they are, look at what they're doing and...

Hey, I just got your last letter…

Hey, I just got your last letter…

Please stop being boring as hell. That’s not you, that’s not how you talk, and starting with the same thing every time just makes it feel like I’m talking to a stranger every time, and I don’t like it.  Be you, yeah? You know, that crazy thing you do where I call...

Millionaires don’t have a million in the bank

Millionaires don’t have a million in the bank

It’s something I’ve known for, well, ever… but it only recently made sense to me on a conscious level. Millionaires DON’T have a million in the bank. Well, not always. (Some of them definitely, probably do) It’s in investments, properties, stocks, shares etc… not just...

You need to show up as your best self.

You need to show up as your best self.

What absolute, utter bullshit. There's a belief that people can and should only show up as their "best self" It came along with the filters and comparisonitis and all the other shit of being online 24/7. When we started living for likes, and reactions and followers....

It sucks being “THAT Mum”

It sucks being “THAT Mum”

You know that MumThat mum that has to say no, rather than chooses to. It sucks being that mum. The one who uses "because I said so" as the reason behind the noEven the kids know it's bullshit. That's why they keep asking, keep pressing, keep pushing for that thing....

When did you give up on life?

When did you give up on life?

"When did you give up on life?" Not you, me… well, yeah, you too. When did you give up on life?? It's a confronting question. Especially when it's asked by one of your closest lifelong friends over coffee stood in your kitchen. But if they're not gonna ask it, then...

I hate London!

I hate London!

I've been to London a grand total of 4 times. The first I was very young and went on a coach trip to see Grease with Shane Richie as Danny Zuko, I loved it, I grew up watching Grease thanks to my Mum, so it was great fun to see it on the stage - I still have the...

Sex, Drugs and Alcohol

Sex, Drugs and Alcohol

The trifecta of self-destruction Not my usual topic, but something that's been on my mind for a while. Getting high is like the new equivalent of smoking was back in high school - all the kids are doing it, and if you're not you're a loser. Well, I'm happy to be a...
