A Habit I Wish I Didn’t Have

This is probably my last October Writing Challenge entry! I have a few others written but they won’t be posted in October. I might have to find one for November, even though my job will take up most of my time for the next couple of months. I may just ramble incoherently. Continue reading “A Habit I Wish I Didn’t Have”

Bitchin', Life

Top 5 Pet Peeves

Third entry for the October Writing Challenge I am doing.


1. People who never listen to advice


Look, I get it. There are things in life that we don’t like. Situations that are beyond our control. I get it. However, if I’ve advised you to do something at least five times and you just don’t bother, I’m either going to think that you enjoy the drama or that you enjoy wasting my time. This is one of the reasons why I try to listen and just offer support but I’m a problem solver, dammit. LISTEN TO ME! At least you get to blame someone else if it goes wrong. Wait, no, they do that anyway. Continue reading “Top 5 Pet Peeves”

Awkward Situations, Bitchin'

A Letter To Someone (Oct Writing Challenge #2)

This is the my second entry for GrowingSpang’s Oct Writing Challenge (you can see the challenge here).



Dear Former Friend,

Sometimes I wonder how you’re doing. In the past, I’d have clicked compose and emailed you, but I won’t do that now. I will hopefully never speak to you again. I’m not angry, not anymore. Okay, so, I did utter ‘heh, this bitch‘ when I last spotted you, but it was out of annoyance more than anything. At you. At myself. Mostly at myself. See, in all of the drama and overthinking, you have taught me an important lesson and reinforced the ones that I never forget. I’m going to list them here as a handy reminder for myself.

I was young when we became friends, and perhaps a bit naive. Despite my outer cynicism, inside I was just like anyone else. I wanted people to respect me and I them. Back then I was extremely forthcoming with my opinions, the way teenagers sometimes are. I probably made it clear that you ANNOYED THE HECK OUT OF ME. And I’m at least sorry for that. I’ve learnt some tact now. Still, despite the annoyance, I was happy to remain friends. I was aware  that you didn’t always appreciate my honesty, at least not if your jibe about deliberately annoying me was to be believed. I suppose that was your checkmate. I deserved that.

October Writing Challenge – #1 – 15 Interesting Facts About Myself

I came across Growing Spangs’ October Writing Challenge and thought that I’d give it a try! I probably won’t do all of them, but we’ll see.

October Writing Challenge! Follow GrowingSpangs on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or Pinterest, and they will follow you back in October 2016!

15 Interesting Facts About Myself

1. I don’t think I’m particularly interesting. Which I guess is sort of contradictory given that I’m about to list 14 more reasons why I am, but there you have it.

2. I am an introvert. I am sure there are some introverts with exciting lives out there, but mine is pretty boring. The one good thing about being an introvert is that often people aren’t aware that I’m there, so I get a lot of juicy secondhand gossip, advice, tips, entertainment. It’s awesome.

3. I love to write. I will write my novel one day. It’ll probably be about a talking inanimate object but I WILL write it. I am thinking of doing NaNoWriMo this year. I always want to do it but I put it off but…maybe this is the year? Who knows. Continue reading “October Writing Challenge – #1 – 15 Interesting Facts About Myself”
