Everything about my relationship with Ben, from the very first moment I met him, was a manipulation. I’m not kidding, and I’m not exaggerating. I first met Ben about a year before I dated him. You know how I mentioned in my last post that my housemates always had parties? Well, Callum threw a party … Continue reading The Ex Files: If I Can’t Inspire Love, I Will Create Fear Vol #5
Excellent question. I’m not going to lie – a part of writing these posts is for me. What happened to both Scott and me in Emerald was awful. We suffered more than most people will ever know, and more than you can imagine, and far more than will ever be written. The effects kept going, … Continue reading The Friendship Breakup: If It Doesn’t Hurt, What’s The Point Of All These Posts?
I feel a bit like a twat for reblogging someone else’s review of my book, but it’s just such a wonderful review and I’m just so grateful to Ariel, my mentor, my editor, and, above all, my friend ❤
I’ve read 5 books between Slaughterhouse-Five & You
Know You Want It, all of which still need reviewing.
However, as the author, Carla Robinson (blogging under “Things Carla Loves”), is a dear friend, who isn’t feeling her (insanely intelligent, empathetic, funny, vivacious) self lately, I felt this deserved a bump up the schedule.
Also, she did something amazing as an indie author that I feel merits discussion. BUT FIRST –
- Carla is one of the first people I connected
with on WordPress. We’ve never had the
pleasure of meeting in person (yet!),

- I received an Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) of this
book & asked to give feedback. I got
about a chapter in before life got in the way.
While Carla says that feedback was helpful, I will kick myself for not
giving it my all – possibly…

Like with "The Friendship Breakup" and "Why I Didn't Report", I'm going to be answering commonly asked questions that chronically ill people often receive because people seem to think that we "don't want to get better", or that we aren't doing everything in our power to get better, because there seems to be a large … Continue reading #ButDon’tYouWantToGetBetter: 5 Ways Anxiety Is Worse Than You Think
Okay, so this one is still continuing on from Jessica ruining Sue and Jeremy’s wedding, but it’s written as a “mini-series” itself, making this somehow book one in a five book series. Don’t fucking ask me, I didn’t write this shit. Also: As my friendly neighbourhood local second-hand bookstore currently doesn't have #108, we get … Continue reading I’m A 90’s Bitch: SVH Double-Crossed Vol #109
Okay, so people post some stuff that I just want to scream, ‘What the fuck are you fucking thinking, you fucking dickhead?’ So I’ve decided to create “Shut Up and Hold My Fucking Margarita” questions to abolish some ignorant-as-fuck myths that people seem to earnestly believe because they’ve obviously never heard of Google before, let … Continue reading Shut Up And Hold My Fucking Margarita (Answering Questions You Wish No One Had Ever Asked): Australia Day
Well, to be honest, it really depends on what you mean by that question. Because the truth is, no, I don’t. I know it seems like it – most people would be like, “Your private life is up for public viewing”, which isn’t an incorrect statement. But I also carefully craft, write and manipulate exactly … Continue reading Do You Tell Everyone Your Feelings?
