Be thankful for the small things
Some days I just don’t feel like it. I don’t feel like cooking, I don’t feel like working out, I don’t feel like working, basically I don’t feel like adulting. I just kinda want to hang out on the couch and watch some stupid show while my brain slowly oozes out of my ears. But
Did you try your best today?
I remember when “The Secret” came out. What an amazing concept! You mean… I can just comfortably sit on the couch and focus while the power of thought does all the work for me? Ha! Need I say more? Oh, but I’m going to. Are you freaking serious? How is “focusing” going to make me

Here I am, staring at the screen, Figma open and a very clear image of what I want in my mind. However, for some reason, making the most basic decisions seems to be too hard for me. How wide should my canvas be? What’s my background color? Should I start vertical or horizontal? Should I
Everything of value is on the other side of fear
I am one of those people who, when presented with a question, will immediately google it. Well, I guess not just any question, but, you know, general knowledge, specific knowledge, how-tos, etc. That kind of stuff.

Moving to a new country all by yourself is kinda tough. You don’t have any friends so you rely on your (new) husband to connect you with his friends’ wives. Which is fine, and you meet a lot of people like that, but honestly not everyone you meet will be bestie material. I went through
When life gives you lemons, kick it in the nuts and go get yourself a steak.

I follow a somewhat unusual way of eating. It’s somewhere between a couple of different “diets” so it doesn’t quite have an official name, I guess. But I’m not the only one who does it, so it does have nicknames. The most popular one is #ketovore. So what the heck is #ketovore, and how did
You think you know where I’m going with this. You’re wrong. The other day, a page I follow on Facebook posted an article that I thought would be worth clicking – you know, so I could read the actual content. A couple of other people had already liked the post and commented on it –
Someone on my Facebook feed posted that “it sucks to be a side chick on holidays” and it sparked this huge rant in my head. There are so many things that I don’t like about this post. The passive aggressiveness, the publicity of it (what the hell happened to privacy?), and most importantly the fact
Here’s something you might not know about me: I’m a frond end web developer. And, as such, sometimes I need to work on code that someone else created. In today’s edition of “things that make me want to punch people in the throat”: Poorly formatted code. Seriously, how can you even find anything? Don’t you
