30. What has happened in the past month, and what you hope will happen in the next month.

Posted on July 31, 2013

So, a whole month of this blogging. July. Is it bad that I can’t really recall what has happened? I guess I’ve been to a few events. I feel like there have been a lot of events on lately. I’ve been counselling a few people through their problems, getting really involved in other people’s problems is kind of a problem of mine. I get too emotionally invested, and then I can’t think about anything else except how they can fix their problem or how I can help them fix it or whatever. I don’t know how people stay detached from things. Is it a personality trait? Can I be trained out of it? Who knows.

28. The month you were happiest this year and why.

Posted on July 29, 2013

I don’t know, man. It’s the end of July, right? I can barely remember what happened this month, let alone the last 6 or so months. It’s been pretty good so far. The worst things about this year so far include but aren’t limited to financial problems, ‘should-I-get-a-real-job’ related problems and ‘I-am-too-invested-in-other-peoples-problems-and-it-is-stressing-me-the-f-out’ problems. The best things are boyfriend-related, feeling calmer and less psycho and I guess more grounded, inner peace, etc. I guess if I had to pick a really happy time, I think there was one day in March where everything just seemed to go right. That was pretty cool. I’m going on holiday to a tropical destination in September, so ask me this question again in a few months and my answer…

27. Your siblings.

Posted on July 28, 2013

I have one sibling. His name is James. If you read this blog you probably have heard a bit about him, he’s a photographer. He is pretty talented, and kinda moody. A true artist. James is my little brother, and even though he is now taller than me and can beat me in an arm wrestle, I still feel protective of him. We get along, mostly. We want to kill each other sometimes, but other times we can give each other secret looks and know what they mean. There are a lot of private jokes. We don’t really hug that much, but I know I could call James in a crisis at 4:00am and he would help me out definitely. He’s good like that. Commence…

26. Your religious beliefs.

Posted on July 28, 2013

Look, I’ve got to be honest with you – religion has never really been a thing that I’ve taken great interest in pretty much my entire life. I remember in primary school we had ‘Religious Instruction’ and we had to learn the Lord’s Prayer and we got to stick glitter and stars on our very own cardboard cut out with the prayer written on it. We used to call it ‘Ridiculous Interruption’ and giggle. I never really took much of it to heart though. I remember praying to ‘God’ that I would find this toy that I had lost one time, but mostly as a child I just thought god was this thing people who were scared of death, had made up. Kind of…

25. 10 ways to win your heart.

Posted on July 27, 2013

Be honest. With all the trust issues I’ve developed over the years, someone who’s open and honest is someone I can have around. Genuinity – is that even a word? Well you know what I mean anyway – no one likes a fake. There’s something about a level of humbleness that has always been attractive to me. Have a nice smile. Possess the ability to spell. Loyalty and demonstrations of such loyalty, whether it be to family or friends etc. Be good at jokes. Take an interest in things I care about or at least be good at listening. Be polite, especially to your family. And mine. Make surprise, unprompted gestures of affection. I am writing this at 7:30am on Saturday morning because I…
