I shrug my shoulders and shake my head…what to do? The only compliments that you give consist of words like “sexy”, or “hot”, or “fit”…cringe! You’re reducing my appeal purely to the physical when I know that I’m much more than that. Tell me that you like how I’m witty, or driven, or compassionate, Don’t … More Dude, I’m An Onion!
Say you were walking down the street and turned a corner to find me standing there, the first fleeting thought that would probably cross your mind would be, “Oh it’s an Indian girl.” To all of you alleged ‘colour blind’ people out there, no that’s not racist, it’s a fact. I am an Indian girl … More A Doomed Mother Tongue
“What screws us up most in life is the picture in our head of how it’s supposed to be.” – Socrates Lately I’ve realised something: so many people experience feelings of unhappiness because they feel like they haven’t managed to live up to their expectations. Don’t get me wrong, a lot of people do actually … More How It’s Supposed To Be
Slow afternoons at work always result in me making a hot chocolate and having a nose around Twitter to scope out the trending hashtags of the moment. So I was doing just that a little while ago when I stumbled upon #AintNoCinderella. It appeared as though some kind of feminist movement was brewing on social … More #AintNoCinderella
I’ve got half a mind to just leave this post blank, because the title really says it all. When it comes to politics, I feel that the saying ‘each to their own’ majorly applies. For this impromptu UK general election tomorrow, we all have our reasons for voting for whichever party we’ve opted to go … More Don’t Try To Sway My Vote
So the other day I spent the evening babysitting my four year old nephew. And as we were going through our collection of DVDs he decided to nonchalantly drop a massive bomb on me. He’d never seen Disney’s The Lion King movie. And he wasn’t even moderately interested in ever watching it. Is your mouth hanging open right … More Kids These Days!
When you have a large extended family or live in a close-knit community that holds strong traditions and values often any major/minor decisions that you make bring with them the stinking undertone of what will people think? For example: quitting your job with no backup plan, leaving your degree halfway through to go travelling, marrying a middle-aged Rasta because you … More What Will People Think?!
Cards on the table, let’s be real for a moment. Whether it’s because we’ve been bored out of our minds, or caught up in our feelings, or trying to find any which way to procrastinate, we’re all guilty of having crept on to an ex’s/old school friend’s/completely random person’s Facebook/Instagram/Twitter page. Face it, it happens, we’ve … More Social Media Stalking
In celebration of my 24th year on this earth (eek!) I thought it would be fun to compile a list of random and ridiculous facts about myself to share with you. So hold on to your hats and prepare to be educated folks, because Small Town Girl 101 is officially in session! Without further ado, let’s begin … More Birthday Vibes
Over the last few years social media has become such a paramount part of people’s lives, particularly in the case of twenty-something year olds. I was chatting to this guy the other day, he must’ve been about 24, so not much older than me. ‘Have you got Snapchat?’ he asked. Nope. ‘Instagram?’ Nope. ‘Twitter?’ Nope. … More Social Media
