Neglecting the blog once more

Well, I've been MIA again! There have been times when I have definitely wanted to write something... but I didn't quite have the will-power to follow through!

So, here is a hodge-podge of things that amuse me - though, they may not amuse you :P

1. I am exhausted. Early starts, crap sleeps, hormones; the whole sha-bang. Last night I was desperate for a good night's sleep.
It seemed like I got to sleep okay - bedroom door closed, ear-plugs in. Then at 1:44am I heard the strangest noises. It was enought to wake me up. Rustling... weird bumps... But by the time I took my ear-plugs out it was silence. There is a whole process when you are being pulled from sleep, through the different levels of awareness - kind of like 'Inception' haha.
I rolled over to look around my room... and there was the cat, staring at me! Turns out she had climbed into my wardrobe (over luggage, plastic bags etc.), gone to sleep, then decided it was time to go prowling. So, of course she had to jump back over all the junk and push the wardrobe door open (hence the noise). Then I had to let her out of my room! Bye-Bye sleepy-time.

2. I must update my time management post. I got obsessed with another one called: 'Vampires vs. Zombies'. Simple although wacky concept, and some surprisingly tough levels (I make it my goal to get the top/gold for every level). I've got a couple of new ones to try too.

3. Pinterest! Pinterest pinterest pinterest pinterest pinterest pinterest pinterest pinterest. Pinterest pinterest.
My pinterest is here

4. After a brief forray into other lip glosses, I have found my way back to Soap & Glory's 'Sexy Mother Pucker' - it really is fantastic. Saying that, I have a sample of Urban Decay's Lip Junkie lip gloss and it's pretty awesome... I am lip gloss junkie afterall!

5. Winter is well and truly here. I recently learnt that my friend, Danielle, hates winter with a passion. She is trying hard to not be negative about it.... to the extent that she has put up her christmas tree. Yes my dears, her christmas tree is up in June! In NZ christmas is in the summer... Anyways, it's things like this that make me love my friends even more!

5a. Winter, though I don't love it, isn't really a problem for me. Sure, I compl;ain when it's cold and wet like everybody else, but I don't hate it either. Winter to me means the New Zealand Film Festival, my birthday, my little little bro's birthday, fluffy PJs, scarfs, and soup!
My favourite seasons, simply because of the weather, are the inbetween seasons: not too hot or too cold.

6. After an extended break away from creative writing with my online friends, I am back! I hadn't written a word of fiction (unless you count some of my work emails ha!) since November last year. It is so great to get back into it, and to have that outlet once more. One of these days I WILL start writing my own story (not one based on someone else's characters).. Actually, starting often isn't the hard part - it's finishing the story that is!

7. Filed under 'The Internet Can Still Surprise You': I've been using the website Goodreads for a few years now. Sometime in mid-2011 I got a friend request to add someone on Goodreads. I didn't know the person, but I read their bio and I thought: we probably have stuff in common, she's in NZ, what's the harm?
So, we became friends on Goodreads. Over the months we'd now and then comment on each others books - especially if one of us had already read the book in question.
In November 2011, we started messaging each other through our inboxes on Goodreads. May 2012 she asked if she could add me on Facebook. From there, we started emailing each other - and boy did we have stuff in common (a crazy amount).
It's just kind of awesome, the risks of the internet aside, to meet someone that could become a friend. It can be really hard to meet anyone new these days - for any sort of relationship. But the fact that Kim and I have never met, but can be friends, is magical! And I am pretty sure we will meet in-person :)

8. I finally bought an exercise bike. It is currently in its box, waiting to be assembled (which I'm hoping my brother will do for me). I have a goal though - to have lost enough weight in 3 months, that when the doctor weighs me at my next appointment, she will be impressed! Obviously, the first priority is to impress myself - I am not happy with the state my body is in, and it's about time I took some action to change that :)
