  • Making your Mind Up

    Making your Mind Up

    I wrote a NaNoWriMo Novel in November, after nine years of false starts. Yesterday, I had a Zoom call with a friend who’s read it, and she’s urged me to enter it for a first novel contest whose deadline is this week. To be honest, there would not previously have been the confidence to do […]

    8.30am. This is the end of the queue.

  • Life Gets Better

    Life Gets Better

    I feel that humanity might also rue the day when lawyers decided basic compliments and arbitrary politeness mattered more than physical harm, granting flimsy justification for white men to continue perpetrating what they consider as 'consensual' relationships. ^^ https://t.co/XqOJlRXdsb — πŸ—Ώ Sarah Reeson πŸ—Ώ Unexpected Metaphor πŸ—Ώ (@MoveablePress) January 8, 2020 Everyone who cannot understand […]

  • Lies


    When I first joined Twitter, nearly eight years ago, people encouraged me to talk about my mental health issues in an environment that felt instantly welcoming. The truth, however, was not nearly as open as was first apparent. There was that DM by one particular person which still lives bright in my brain: just want […]

  • Wherever You Will Go

    Wherever You Will Go

    Today, we’re going to talk about learning. Learning is not just a grasp of information, it is a combination of many, disparate factors. Experience counts for a significant amount of the process too: how things work, so that over time you can better understand the best means to optimise and streamline processes. By far the […]

  • History Repeating

    History Repeating

    I REALLY need to make some new headers for the blog. I stuck a PostIt on the wall that says ‘Archive Late June’ and that would be now, so it’s probably the moment to schedule it… except yesterday’s penultimate counselling’s pulled the supporting brick out of a wall that was fairly precarious to begin with, […]

  • The World is Not Enough

    The World is Not Enough

    There has been a persistent, niggling worry in the back of my mind for some time. Is counselling doing any good?Β The only way to tell, of course, is to stick me in potentially stressful situations and see what happens. This weekend was the first major test of a lot of things, and I’m really happy […]

  • Crying


    Last night’s second Blaze class, as it transpires, really wasn’t that bad at all. I burnt 920 calories tonight. This is the hardest I've ever worked in a class. We're getting somewhere. pic.twitter.com/GsltOqfJNi — 🌊 Sarah @ The Gym πŸ“ Reassessing Targets 🌊 (@AlternativeChat) January 29, 2019 The key to this increase in relative effort […]

  • Honesty


    This week’s going by quite fast, but the progression within is more than acceptable. I can now do dips at the Gym (and will be going back to practice those later) and my upper body strength is… well, coming along nicely. I tweaked a bicep after Monday, but everything appears to be fine today. It’s […]

  • Somebody’s Watching Me

    Somebody’s Watching Me

    Occasionally, someone will retweet something into my Twitter feed I can’t see. If that person is someone really liked, and there’s a desire to read it, it’ll be time to fire up the Internet of Words feed for a quick shufty. Some people arbitrarily share the block filters of others (which is easily done via […]
