Under Construction

Hello hello.

This blog is currently going through some upgrades and such technical things. Letting you all know that I won’t be posting whilst all this is happening, should only take a couple of days, so never fear! =)

In the meantime I’ll still be working, editing, writing, etc. Dw, still alive! Haha.

Thanks for your understanding and support!

[Gift!] The Joys of University (Not)

MASTERESSAY

Almost everyone I know now is back in class. Once again, conversations are about timetables, stress, ‘already got an assignment due’, whatismylife I have no time for anything anymore. And it’s only Week 2. Just wait til the major assignments come, the killer essays, the final exams. Whoop dee doo, isn’t school fun!

I asked my friend Samuel yesterday, if he found University fun. “Uni is uni. It’s a description in and of itself.” No room for proper fun, it seems.

So as there was good news to celebrate a couple of days back, (300 followers, whoot!), I thought – might as well give you all a present of some sort in return, to express my gratitude. =) Continue reading

[Writing Day] 26. Creation In A Dusty Box

Dusty Box

Seems like I’m back to my stream of consciousness poems. Sometimes it’s good to do different things. (You mean, actually write something in one of your Writing Day posts? Why yes, cynical voice in my head. haha) =)

 

I’ve kept all my main scribbles since I was 11. Found them all

In a box under my bed tonight. We were clearing out old things

To renew the energy, and I found I could not let go of my old scraps

Of writing. Some, I could, because they were meaningless. Some, I couldn’t.

 

Nowadays it’s rare to write on paper, we mostly write on cold glass surfaces.

If I have a new idea I write on a scrap of paper, my daily planner, sometimes

The serviettes of a random café. Anything on which to write it down, and not lose that

Wisp of smoke, that stroke of wonder, that creative spark that floated down from the stars. Continue reading

[Writing Day] 24. What To Write About When You Have Nothing To Write About

carson_quote
Anything. Everything. Silly things. Nonsensical things. Things that don’t make sense. Idle crap. Gibberish. Anything that pushes your buttons. Everyday things. Imaginary things.

About you, or someone you know. Someone made-up, or no-one at all.

To me, writing is a feeling, rather than an activity. I can feel ‘writing’ inside me, and so I will write. When I don’t feel it, I don’t write. Continue reading

[Something To Think About] Overcoming Your Fears

10563066_10152560135143908_4206208447466837089_n

The importance of overcoming your fears has been on the back of my mind since I encountered this post by Ed, a great blogger.

Fear anchors you in powerlessness. Letting go of it, empowers you.

Ask yourself: What is dragging you down? What are you afraid of? Failure? Judgement? Friends?

Confront it, neutralize the fear, overcome it, and let yourself free, let yourself live.

Believe me, you can. More importantly, believe in yourself.

Just something to think about.

[Writing Day] 23. Happy Exhaustion

[Writing Day] 23 3

Anastasia turned 11! Whoohoo!

This explains the reason for my relatively short posts these past few days, probably tomorrow as well.

I’m feeling terribly lost, exhausted, but satisfied that she enjoyed her day, and grateful for her presence in our lives. She inspires me not only to try harder, to keep smiling, she inspires me to live. She has taught me the joys of life in her short 11 years, looking forward to the future together!! =) Continue reading
