Give me back my old brick phone - along with my life, thanks

I started to tell the sales guy that I was only 5 weeks out from my contract end-date, meaning I would own my iphone 6 outright and be (finally) free to do as I please. Normally I would just go ahead and re-contract.

I'm sorry, am I boring you?

Most people don't actually listen to you when you're talking. Have you noticed? We're all pretty talented pretenders... You can tell when their eyes dart all around you, looking at everything and everyone BEHIND you, but rarely focusing on your face Or, they may have positioned their phone on the table in front of them and periodically glance down, breaking eye contact with you and making you feel like - yep, not listening to me.

How to go on dates with yourself (and actually like it)

I've always had issues with going to cafes/restaurants by myself. The thought of sitting there all alone made me feel all panicky and sick. I think it was a mixture of not wanting to be deal with awkward small talk with strangers (classic introvert trait) and anxiety over what people would think of me sitting there alone, eating.

I wish people would stop telling me to settle - Thoughts And Ideas - Medium

I've been dwelling on the thought, recently, that maybe our schooling education has been prepping us to get the 'shit end of the stick' so to speak, once it spews us out into the working world, as young adults. That, perhaps all 'school' and our education system has done is prepared us all to be fantastic little robotic, task performers.

Thanks mind, I heard you the first time you said I was shit

I have this somewhat bipolar little person living inside my head. She's definitely a woman because she overthinks, doubts her abilities, gets offended easily and her emotions are up and down as if you're riding horrible roller coaster that you just can't seem to get off. Fun, no?

What if I'm that awkward, shy girl nobody wants to talk to? - MY ROOMMATE NANCY

An annoyingly old tale that is regularly whispered to me by my anxious, overthinking mind, Nance. I remember a few years ago, (actually, years and years ago. I'm getting old. Don't tell my ovaries and my soon-to-be-wrinkled skin) my partner invited me to his work Christmas party with him, and, while I was initially stoked that ...

Life in a caffeinated state

Last week, Jamie, from accounts asked me to go to a motivational conference with her on the weekend, at this stage I was 2 double shot coffees deep and the caffeine chimed in, telling me it's a fantastic idea. Before I knew it, I'd accepted, agreed to the $60 VIP upgrade and promised to drive us.

Is everyone's mind this negative? - MY ROOMMATE NANCY

I've been extra vigilant - lately - to call out my mind for any of its 'jerk-like' behaviour. You know, not letting it get away with anything, and getting clear on exactly what page it's on (in the encyclopaedia of Neurotic Mind Shenanigans) SO WE CAN BOTH JUST GET ALONG.
