I’m in a mood today

And no, it’s not because of the lock-down or the Coronavirus. Do you guys remember the time before the lock-down, when some days would just feel meh and meek, and while you could wake up and be perfectly fine, it wouldn’t take a lot for you to just feel off after a while and youContinue reading “I’m in a mood today”

The Sun Is Our Friend. And Right Now, We Need Her Desperately.

I might be the whitest person around here (Scottish roots show through the almost translucently fair skin, face full of freckles from 10 minutes out in the sunlight, and ginger-red hair), but I can’t be the only one celebrating the arrival of late spring and warm weather. Now of course I don’t know just howContinue reading “The Sun Is Our Friend. And Right Now, We Need Her Desperately.”

Mandatory Food-Related Post

We’ve hit that point. You know, that point of the lock-down. When it’s been going on for quite a few days, when you’ve settled into the flow of things a bit more, and when you’ve finally told that god-awful trend of getting fit and lean during this pandemic to get lost, embracing not only theContinue reading “Mandatory Food-Related Post”

On the Idea(l) of Self-Improvement during a World-Wide Lock-Down

In case you had forgotten, today is Monday. Monday the 6th of April. Is it someone’s birthday today? Remember, you can’t use the excuse of “Oh sorry, I was so busy on the day I didn’t have time to congratulate you!” when you are reminded by a mutual friend three days late, this year. IContinue reading “On the Idea(l) of Self-Improvement during a World-Wide Lock-Down”

Keeping Mentally (In)Sane Right Now

Let’s get right down to business and talk about some things that will help keep your head in the right place and stop spiralling into the questions, the oh so many questions… Alright! So we’re still not feeling this whole lock-down situation all that well, are we? It’s still kind of boring, lonely, annoying, andContinue reading “Keeping Mentally (In)Sane Right Now”
