There’s this misconception that being a nice person is, well, nice. Sometimes this is true, the warm glow when you help somebody out, the gratitude, the appreciation, the recognition. It’s a little bit lovely, for lack of a better word. Being nice isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be though, and I increasingly find myself coming to the realisation that ‘nice’ is just a euphemism for ‘pushover’. It’s also worth noting that not all nice people are the same, but this blog concerns the people who are like me…the people who are TOO nice. Over the past few weeks I … Continue reading The Perils of Being Too Nice.
I listen to One Direction, I have no shame. One Direction have a song called ‘Best Song Ever’, and like so many other One Direction songs I will have a little song and dance along, because I’m basically Zayn’s replacement. As pretentious as the title sounds, the song is not necessarily claiming to be the best song ever(which is just as well, because it’s not and that would be a lie and lying is bad). It is in fact the (debatably) beautiful story of what happened to one of the lads when he met a pretty girl and a great … Continue reading The Best Song Ever
So my flatmate and I watched a movie one night and then we were talking and it was 2am and somehow the conversation was turned to the all important question…how did dinosaurs have sex? You know, the kind of thing that you generally only wonder at 2am. I don’t really know why the internet exists but if it’s not so that you can find some kind of answer to your 2am musings then it is wasted. What our Google search did find was a beautiful Buzzfeed article which did exactly what we asked it to. It even has a picture of a … Continue reading Sextinction
Sometimes I write terrible poetry to pass the time. The words hit you, imprinted on your mind yet never sinking in. Tears burn your face as you retract from the world. Diaphragm freezing. Heart racing. Stomach turning to stone as nauseau loiters, curling your numb body tighter. Thoughts racing- a feeble attempt to comprehend rejection. Continue reading Another Terror
So WordPress, long time no see eh? I last posted almost a year ago, and admittedly it has been 2 years since you had the TLC you deserved, and so much has happened since then, and I’ve had to work through it all without you by my side which was just weird! The start of this week saw me seriously asking myself if I should start writing again. I wanted to, deep inside, more than anything. I wanted to return to that little corner of cyber space that gave me a channel to vent my borderline insanity and outrageous lesbianistic … Continue reading To Blog Or Not To Blog…
I spent my weekend at Enterprise North East Scotland’s Enterprise Challenge 2014. The Enterprise Challenge is an annual even for people from Grampian and Tayside who are aged 18-30 and either run their own business, are starting up their own business or are interested in starting up their own business in the future, and poses participants with a series of physical and mental challenges to replicate the emotional rollercoaster of self employment. I’m not going to tell you what shenanigans we got up to, just in case you fancy having a go yourself, instead I am going to share with … Continue reading Things I Learnt This Weekend.
So since I’ve been busy wading through my Guiding life, and ignoring the rest of life, I am going to apologise by presenting you with a new ‘subdivision’ of ‘Kirsty Through The Looking Glass’, which I have, rather creatively, named ‘WATCH ME ONCE!’ (or WMO for convenience). This is going to be a series of short, spoiler free promotions/reviews of all the movies which I feel that you should watch at least once in your life. Maybe because they are brilliant, or thought provoking. Or maybe it’s a movie which is so bad that it’s funny. I’m not saying that … Continue reading WMO: Chatroom
