“I forgive those who hurt me in the past and peacefully detach from them.” That has been one of my major affirmations for a while now. It allowed me to remain objective while facing random acts of symbolic violence from those I believed to be trust worthy. It’s an affirmation that helps one move past […]
I see my dog turning old, lose skin under her neck, I see her sleeping more and more, nodding off as she pretends to stay awake. I sit there talking to someone, a person who promises the world to me. I take my book and open a page – last poems I published about an […]
I knew from the first moment you called me unexpectedly, I would wake up every morning wanting to hear your voice. Again and again and again.
Every misunderstanding caused as you struggle reading my texts, as you assume different from what I convey, shows me how little you truly know me. Scarcely understand me.
Day 41: The Shit-Show – Single Woman’s Diary
It was really lovely what V said last night: “get them to do a blood test on your 3rd date”! After I told her about how “helicobacter pylori” spreads! And Daniel: “wow you got lucky. You dodged a bullet!” Tinder dates. What can I say? What can I say. You think as a woman abiding […]
Day 31: Hookup Culture – The Single Woman’s Diary
Today’s Tinder-generation (and that’s a broad age spectrum, not just 20 year olds – includes those going to be 40 and 50 soon) are all swimming in a “hookup culture”.

The one I’d think of night and day, that face I can’t recall. What was that persons name? I tried to recollect, but it has permanently left my mind. Gone.
Day 15: The Single Woman’s Diary
I never thought I’d say this… but a week of no makeup is actually doing good to my skin! And hanging out with people I adore does it even better. No, seriously though, usually I get breakouts right before my periods but this time I just had a coldsore and one huge zit a week […]
Day 11: The Single Woman’s Diary
Daniel (with a deep Scottish accent and a manly voice mimicking toxic masculinity): your father shall approve of my built, I have many cows. And a sheep. Now hold my beer. That’s what happens when you have a bestmate who’s an outsider of student associations, but loves his beer and whiskey as much as I/we […]
Day 37: The Bike Analogy – The Breakup
Woke up remembering a valid lesson that my dad taught me, in-order-to be aware that the past is in the past. To do so, one must let all past emotions leave one’s mind and be ready to move on for a new experience, cause “you can’t ride a motorcycle while keeping your eye constantly on […]
