I spotted her heading my way towards the bar with all the determination of a Salmon fish swimming upstream. I tried to look for an escape but it was too late. I was cornered and she was moving in like a hungry mantis to the place I (ironically) had come to drown my sorrows and forget. But no sooner had... Read the rest of this post...

‘I kid you not, my mate from Canada sent me this one and it’s about as big as my arm.’ said Jake. Passing over a his phone to Dom who was the other side of me. We were at work and I was standing between my two male colleagues who were showing each other pictures of shit. No, not hypothetical... Read the rest of this post...

But this week I got to thinking about seasons we encounter in our lives? Many of you are embarking on a new season. Just finished uni? Starting a new job? Some of us are still in...

Their beady little bodies scurried around frantically. I stood, startled at the unexpected company of 300 ants emerging from a tiny crack in the fireplace. And more were coming. ‘We’re under attack! Zip up your clothes. Seal that marmalade. Conceal those Ferrero Rocher – that’ll be the first thing they’ll go for – I just know it! What do I... Read the rest of this post...

Scenario: you’re boyfriend has just broken up with you (or maybe you are the one that did the breaking up). You are in a state of shock. You can’t think straight. It’s actually over. There is a massive lump in your throat and your feel like crying, or maybe you are crying, right now – AS YOU READ THIS! This... Read the rest of this post...

So my mate and I were having coffee the other week trying to get on with some essay work and as usual we began talking about non-essay related topics. Her boyfriend was coming to visit and so she needed to pop into boots on the way home to get some wax strips. It was at that precise moment that I had the revelation that I am constantly at war. Yes, me! The peace warrior that I am is engaged in CONSTANT CONFLICT... and I am not talking about my current altercation with my neighbours regarding my morning Cyndi Lauper singing I see your true colours... NO! I am talking about a vicious confrontation with (dum dum dum) my own body hair. I am talking about the battle of the FUZZ people. And it is Uuuuuur-Gaa-LY!

This week I seek to question: Why do people date other people who look like their ex? So, some smart ass is going to tell me: Maybe it’s because some people just have a ‘type’? Maybe it’s coincidence? Don’t patronize meeeee sir. I am absolutely, positively convinced there is more to it then what meets the eye. A while back,... Read the rest of this post...

So I had a bit of a meltdown this week. I actually went slightly AWOL. I almost broke down into tears at uni – a complete mess… And now I feel like a giant penis. So here’s the story… I am a bit of a Take That fan and I am unashamed to admit that I have recently been fairly... Read the rest of this post...

So last night I went out. I haven’t danced so vigorously (outside of my bedroom) for literally years. I was gettin my grroooove on people! And it felt incredible. Not to brag but it was a bit like that scene in Honey. My feet felt like they were possessed, I mean they were moving fast. I even participated in a... Read the rest of this post...

Sooo let’s not go into positives, because we all know there are plenty of ‘em. This is about when Facebook goes wrong. Very wrong. Facebook should be called ASBO-book, really. Is it me or are people getting touchy with status updates? The other day I logged into my account and innocently browsed my news feed. Louise had got a haircut.... Read the rest of this post...
