Hard as Diamonds, Tough as Nails

[This is a repost of a post published in February 2015. It's amusing reading what I wrote back then, especially as I know what happened next (even though some of it is now a blur in the archive of memory). I did buy a house, and strangely enough I sometimes refer to this house as... Continue Reading →

What type of people are you most attracted to now?

. Change is a natural part of life. Sometimes it is for the better, sometimes for the worse, sometimes its ambiguous and we're not really sure whether it's good or bad or neutral.

It’s a drip drip drip that works its way... Continue Reading →

How To Do An ‘Inception’ on Yourself

So last night I finally got around to watching Inception. It's a beautifully constructed screenplay and movie. I love Christopher Nolan's mind (yes, I'm one of those people who gets turned on by minds, sexually too, but mostly it's all about a shot of inspiration zapping my mind from the mind of another. ps. don't...
