My first time!

They say there’s always a first time for everything! Well, do you remember your ‘firsts’? While answering these questions, I realized that I have had a pretty normal, boring life. No pizzazz or drama. So I asked the same questions to bossman, my SO, and his answers were funny, over-the-top, and definitely more interesting. (Catch … Continue reading My first time!

Forgive and Forget

For the last couple of weeks, I have struggled with writer's block.

The year that was!

2019 has been a relatively good year for me. It started out really shaky and at some point,  I lost hope with where the world was taking me.

Friends and foes

Your friends, to some extent, make you who you are; ‘show me your friends; I’ll tell you your character’ they say. This doesn’t really apply to … Continue reading Friends and foes

Broken Love

Tom was sitting in the dark, smoky and dingy bar by the huge wooden counter downing his fourth beer. He was eyeing a seminude voluptuous girl swaying her hips from side to side in a seductive manner while trying to catch the game on the small TV mounted up high on the wall. He had … Continue reading Broken Love

On a side note…

When I recently talked about depression, I never knew I could have an effect on anyone. I just thought it was a therapeutic way for me to let go and maybe make it up to those I may have been a shitty friend to during that despairing period. So you can imagine the shock when … Continue reading On a side note…
