Pre-anniversary

Have you ever imagined The One? Their fingernails. Their lopsided smile after cracking and inside joke. Their crooked toes. Their smell right after a steamy shower, and at the end of a long day. How they’d know you better than you know yourself, and you’d want to be with them to explore both you and… Continue reading Pre-anniversary

NaJoWriMo 05/04/2016: Space matters

Context matters. One’s surrounding can influence their mood, perception, and even the memories they form. I know that my physical environment affects my productivity quite strongly. When I was writing assignments and my dissertation, I often went to the library. I would try to sit at the same computer, or at least at the same… Continue reading NaJoWriMo 05/04/2016: Space matters

NaJoWriMo 01/04/2016: Out with the old, in with the new

This month’s NaJoWriMo is about Personal Renewal. It is quite topical, I have to say. The fourth month of this wretched year has begun and I feel utterly miserable. My life has taken a ride downhill and seems to have gut stuck in some stupid hole. I would like to say it was out of… Continue reading NaJoWriMo 01/04/2016: Out with the old, in with the new

NaJoWriMo 12/01/2016: Day dream

Today’s prompt is asking me to day dream. That’s easy. How would I like to spend my day, what would I like to happen… Well, I would have liked not to have the neighbour knocking on the door, complaining about a leak. I would have liked not to have my carpets rolled up, the floorboards… Continue reading NaJoWriMo 12/01/2016: Day dream

NaJoWriMo 10/01/2016: Expectations

Today I was prompted to think about my expectations for this year, including any changes, activities, experiences or people I look forward to encountering. There are actually quite a few. I look forward to receiving an email from my prospective employer to say whether and when I can start my new job. I wonder what… Continue reading NaJoWriMo 10/01/2016: Expectations

Unsent Letter #3

Do you know what sucks? Feeling like I’ve never been closer to someone than I am to you – knowing it will never be less than an ocean apart. Wanting to tell you how much I hurt – holding back because I don’t want to burden you. Giving all I have ever been and all… Continue reading Unsent Letter #3
