You were so quick to file me under weird because I told you that sometimes I like to walk around the house naked…..As if you yourself were born wearing clothes.


30 Other Things Every Woman Should Know By 30

Thought Catalog

A list of “30 Things Every Woman Should Have And Should Know” has been popping up everywhere lately. Most recently on The Huffington Post, where it has received 22,800 Facebook “likes” and over 3,000 “Pins” in the past two days alone. The advice includes making sure you have “a black lace bra” and “an umbrella you’re not ashamed to be seen carrying.” (Because those are the items women need to lead inspired lives.) Over the years I’ve compiled my own list, which I’d like to share with you now. It assumes a basic knowledge of rain gear and undergarments.
  1. Always ask for more money at your job, even if you don’t think you deserve it.
  2. Try to be kind to the people who are rude to you. It’s not personal, they’re just having a really bad day/month/life.
  3. Don’t go to doctors that advertise. Ask a friend for a recommendation.

6 Sexist Things Girls Say

Because girls can be sexist too, right?

Thought Catalog

1. “Chivalry is dead.”

I consider myself a male feminist; I have no issue with the idea women are as capable as men in nearly any tasks. Giving birth is where I may draw the line; you gals are rocking that. However, it is often impossible not to hear some women impart standards upon men when they cry out against even the slightest disregard of inequality which goes their way across the fence. This oft-quoted line could often be pointed towards any person (chivalry applying to both sexes), but it is more often than not a complaint against men who do not pull out chairs, do not carry all the bags, or do not pay for the entirety of a date. So you want a man who treats you with standards imparted by a patriarchal culture? How about a man who wants a woman to quit her job, pump out…

How To Treat Hypersensitive People…

As you would any other person. Taking your cue from them. You see, in order to ‘read’ hypersensitive people, you yourself have to be somewhat sensitive. Or at least aware. You have to be able to look outside of yourself and what you see. The good thing about this is that you get to choose when to be sensitive/aware.

We don’t. We just are. All day everyday.

Creative Backlog

I am creatively backlogged. As a writer, my mind is filled with so many ideas and so many things to do that it feels clogged/blocked/whatever you wanna call it. For reasons unknown to me yet, I just can’t write them all down. But they keep coming. I never stop getting ideas.  Everyday I wake up and I hope that I will not be inspired. That I will get no ideas. So that I can spend more time trying to find the plug so I can pull it…and unclog my mind.

I have watched many deadlines pass me by. I have felt guilty because I have been unable to meet them. I am also a perfectionist. Perhaps this plays a big part in why I haven’t been able to follow through with my ideas. I check everything over and over again. Which makes me a good editor, but…

So to my few followers, I apologise. I will get it right. I promise. But for now, the best that I can do is post the fragments of writing I have written until I get my groove back. (Of course the perfectionist in me will make these fragments seem whole.) Watch this space.
