If Romance Is Like Alcohol, Then I’m An Alcoholic

I read Mark Manson’s article ‘Romance is like alcohol’ today and.. *rolls up sleeves”… are you ready?

So I’m just going to say it straight, I’m a romantic. I love romance. It’s completely intoxicating… so much so that I’ll take a bath in it and drown myself. It’s been three years since single Rebecca has been let loose on the streets and I seem to have a lot more game than I used to, but none of the smarts.  Continue reading “If Romance Is Like Alcohol, Then I’m An Alcoholic”

I’ll tell you a secret

My holiday is coming to an end and I’ve been ruminating on the social media detox I did a few months back and why I didn’t land up publishing all of the notes I wrote a long the way. I guess some of the journals were too personal to publish.

But while we’re on the subject of what might be too personal to publish, I’ll tell you a secret… Continue reading “I’ll tell you a secret”

giphy (50)

Love. It is a profound, powerful element of life and sought after as much as it is expressed. It is also oftentimes mistaken for infatuation, or what I like to term: bad, mad love.

“How awful it would be if I had all these rambunctious feelings for someone, then have to fake acting cool. That’s so ‘The Rules.’ I’d rather express how I feel than get the guy. I’ve done animations, portraits, photographed events, created luxury photo books: all successful ways to maintain my independence. Something about creating an original work of art frightens the pants on a guy!” Continue reading “Bad, mad love”

Don’t be afraid, life is long

I’m realising more and more that I’m still figuring out who I am, what I like and where I’m headed. The uncertainty is frightening and I’m unsure of so many things.

It’s becoming increasingly important for me to know what I want and to choose the direction of my life rather than aimlessly floating around. I think I’m attracted to people who are passionate. They have a ‘thing’- be it bartending, or photojournalism or online education. I want a ‘thing’ that I can call my own. Continue reading “Don’t be afraid, life is long”

Day 10: Hot date

*I recently completed a 30 day social media detox and this was one of the posts I wrote a long the way.

It was a beautiful Autumn day and a potential suitor asked to meet me for after work drinks, after which…

Day 5: Suicide

*I recently completed a 30 day social media detox and this was one of the journal entries I wrote a long the way.

Maybe because I’m a bit tired this morning, I keep forgetting that I’ve disabled my social media accounts and then ALMOST navigating to them before I remember that I’m doing the 30 day detox.
