I Ain’t Goin Nowhere…

I have developed a dislike for traveling. In my younger life I had a voracious appetite for it and the suggestion of it occupied my mind most hours of the day; I worked and saved money towards it, furiously planned and researched modes of travel and destinations, I desperately squeezed dry every available minute of…

My Dear John To London

Dear London, Where do I begin…writing with a heavy heart is a laborious undertaking. I feel like we’ve been drifting in different directions for quite some time and for our relationship to continue is only problematic and heartbreaking for me. That is why I’ve decided to call time on us. I’m leaving you. Until quite…

Another Pound Bites The Dust

So I had my second weigh in today and lost 1lb, bringing my total to 6lbs in two weeks. I’ve got to admit that when I first got on the scales this morning, I was rather disappointed…it’s hard to follow a 5lb loss with another big number loss. I know I know, it’s better that…

First Weigh In!!!

So first weigh in was this morning…and I lost 2.3kgs/5lbs! I’m obviously very happy with my result and can’t believe I did so well. This has given me some laser beam focus and a heavy dose of motivation to carry on. If you read my first post then you’ll know that I have a certain…

Time To Start Shedding My LBs

  Okay, so here is my first dieting blog post. Anyone who knows me knows that I have struggled with my weight for most of my life. However, last week I decided that I was going to join Weight Watchers and finally tackle the rather large problem at hand once and for all. I went…

Liberal Arts Matter

I decided to write about this post, as it’s been a topic close to my heart for some time. A long time ago I read In Defense of a Liberal Education by Fareed Zakaria and finally found literature that resonated with how I felt about the liberal arts. He obviously goes into far greater detail…

Good Girl Code

There comes a point in every 30 something’s life when a discussion regarding fidelity and “girl code” usually takes place. This conversation will more often than not occur on a boozy girl’s night out when after a constant stream of alcoholic libations has been consumed, freed up inhibitions will inevitably navigate the conversation towards topics…

My Sweetest Taboo: Loneliness

Loneliness, still one of the last remaining taboos. But why are we so shy about discussing one of humanity’s most glaring certainties in life, besides death and taxes? I could without doubt never say those two simple words, “I’m lonely” to any of my friends. To admit such a fact would create not only an…

Modern Friendships

From time immemorial we have been led to believe that an enduring and intimate friendship between two women should require the meeting of two souls; however, in today’s world it often feels like souls have been set aside in favor of the synching of iPhone calendars. On two recent occasions I have had to cancel…
