Who put raw eggs in my bag

Who put raw eggs in my bag

On the day before we left for Bali I boiled four eggs to bring with us because I can’t eat plane food, and then Bloody Good Chap boiled four eggs for breakfast the morning we left, but when we got on the flight, I found four raw eggs cracked in my bag. It turned out… read more…

Feeling Meh on a Monday

Feeling Meh on a Monday

Today I’m having one of those days where you mope around being unproductive and eating the wrong things and forgetting about all the good stuff you’ve been working on recently and all the people that keep telling you nice things (you know who you are, thank you for your lovely messages).

How to prove you’re intelligent

How to prove you’re intelligent

I used to be an awkward, pessimistic, mediocrely happy overachiever.

Life looked good on the outside, but on the inside things were average.
