    This Happened

    So maybe my car isn’t quite like in the photo above, but it’s behaving like it’s dead so the pic can stay! It won’t budge, nobody can start it. It’s been limping along and starting only when it’s in the mood and now it’s given me the big FU and here we are. I’m hoping it can be saved but I’ll have to see what a mechanic says. If it’s going to cost too much to fix, then it’s going to have to go. So, for now, it’s a nice little ornament in the car park, keep your fingers crossed that it actually can be fixed! Not great timing, it’s…

    And the Move is ON!

    Okay. So my mood has improved since the last post. YAY! I had some local therapy of sorts – mum therapy, sister therapy, friend therapy and I have bounced back. Phew! Good news finally – not that I ever doubted this would happen but the timing was impeccable. A unit is available in the next complex, not the complex we originally thought, but the complex on the other side. The best part is it’s managed by the same guy and he’s an all-round top bloke AND we’re still neighbours with Tanja so it’s mega-easy to visit each other. *reminds Tanja there is a swimming pool in our complex*  The timing…

    The Evil That Walks Among Us

    One of my interests is in true crime and at times even I struggle to reconcile my traits as an HSP with my fascination with evil throughout the world. INFJs have a macabre and often dark sense of humour but crime is no laughing matter, especially when the subject matter covers rape, torture, and murder. The crux of my interest lies with the big question – WHY? Like most people, I just can’t come close to understanding why someone would deliberately harm another person or more than one. Naturally, I am full of sympathy for victims of crime. I can empathise with their pain, fear etc. to the best of my…

    What Goes Up, Must Come Down

    I appear to dislike this time of year or this time of year dislikes me. I feel like crud at the moment, my mood has been down for a few days. Today is dad’s birthday, he would have been 77 but he will always remain a young 72. And because of today, I wondered if this is the reason for my low mood and it struck me that I’ve considered this before, around the same time of the year. I’m missing dad, it’s around his birthday – makes sense. Then I discovered on Facebook that the drops in my mood happening around this time of year were happening before dad…

    Lie Detection – A Superpower

    What’s one of the worst things we can experience? Being lied to. To our faces!!! That breach of trust cuts most of us deeply, it is such a horrible thing to feel that someone cannot for whatever reason be honest. Oh, I know we all lie at times but mostly they’re harmless enough – little white lies. “The dog ate my homework” “I had a dodgy curry last night so I can’t come into work” “No, I didn’t take the last cookie” “I can’t go out tonight, I’ve got a headache” People mostly lie to protect themselves or others and most aren’t going to result in the end of the world…
