      • In response to: "What's the one thing you're never gonna give up?" My sense of humour. It's dry and sarcastic and I can make people laugh, which I love doing; The crinkle at the corner of the eyes of a genuine smile is one of life's perfect gifts.

    • Notes on a Young Woman
      • If I could choose any author to write my biography, it would have to be someone skilled at drawing interest and humour out of the mundane, so I'd probably go for Bill Bryson or someone of a similar ilk.

        Bill Bryson could probably make even a rather unexciting life such as mine seen amusing - you'll know what I mean if you've ever read his book "Notes on a Big Country", which is a collection of writings on the mundanity of American suburban living in the 90's. It's possibly one of the most amusing and easy to read books I own.

    • Why I blog, or sometimes not.
      • I don't know how this compares to other's experiences but I find I have so much going on inside my head sometimes that I can't follow all the trains of thought.

        Sometimes, mentally collating these strands of thoughts and feelings into a structured blog post is the only way I can make sense of them. Unfortunately this mental process doesn't always coincide with keyboard time, so there are a lot of posts which have gone unwritten, simply because I wasn't in a position to type them when I wrote them. Once the tangled thought-strand has been extricated and sorted, it tends to remove itself to a back seat.

    • Skillful self improvement
      • When you consider the realms of opportunity afforded by this prompt, saying 'better self-management and prioritisation' probably sounds a bit lame, but seriously, that's what I need right now to really get on with stuff.

        Knowing how to make myself get on with stuff when all I want to do is press my face against the glass and watch the rain would be a very handy trick.

    • Archaic.
      • Carl Sagan first said "In order to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe". This has been taken as the mission statement for this blogger from the 2000's as she attempts to get back to the building blocks and reassemble herself.

    • Changes.....Inevitability.
      • I would like my blog to make changes to the world of the individual who reads it.

        I want to let people know that I'm out here. I'm honest and I'm real.

        Everything you read makes some change on you, whether infintesimely small or a profound alteration to your outlook, it doesn't matter. If you internalize the thoughts of another, you have become, for better or worse, a different person.

        You'll never know you've changed until you stop and look back.
