Swamp thing

I had this grand idea of writing and publishing 30 posts in 30 days… Yeah!!! It hasn’t exactly been going all that well.

I have been SWAMPED and, if I’m being totally honest, I’ve been lazy. In my mind, all I can imagine doing after work is vegging in front of my laptop watching Scrubs (you remember that show? You should. It’s freaking brilliant!)

Scrubs is a brilliant show, enough of the feels to make you nearly cry but then it turns it right back around with a Coxism or a JD daydream. It’s feel good and it needs to be watched by all people all the time, alongside Friends. I mean, who needs these new series or the 11th season of Grey’s Anatomy? Who needs to know what happens when winter finally gets here? I’ll just stick to the good ol… er… oldies. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Come now, Judith!!

Where was I? Oh yes, swamped. I tried being a blogging factory popping one out every day and for a bit there I did well… Till work and studies could no longer be ignored and I had to get deadlines and exams out of the way. See these things were interfering with my schedule of doing pretty much nothing. Ok, no, that’s a lie, I didn’t do nothing. Although, now I AM doing nothing which is the whole reason I am not getting to my 30 posts thing.

I’m not one for these personal insight kinda posts but I felt it needed some explanation, and I felt guilty. I feel guilty most days, everything I do is overshadowed by some form of guilt. Watching series, ‘You should be studying” buying ANYTHING “You should be saving‘ eating my fourth bag of chips that week, “I’m just here working on your will, since you’ll be dead soon because of that unhealthy shit’. The guilt is real and it’s everywhere.

So, on that note, I will try and write a post a day for the next few days. Don’t hold me to it tho, cos I’m still quite swamped.

99 posts but it’s plus one…

Dang it, I missed the perfect opportunity to use that line… you know, the 99 problems but a bitch aint one.

As this is my 100th post I just thought it should be a thank you note to all y’all that kept reading the stuff I post. Everyone who comments and likes and shares my stuff. I appreciate each and every one of you. Eventhough I do not know you personally, we all share a common thing: (well apart from, oxygen, water, space EARTH) we are all bloggers, people who want to be heard so badly that they write all their thoughts and or rants down for total strangers to read.

Metroman, Megamind


I have tried to be funny along the way but sometimes the deeper stuff just pushes to the surface. I have tried to keep it fresh and tried (not very hard) to keep posting in both Afrikaans and English. I love writing (not in the “I will write a book one day” kinda way) but still, I hope to keep posting interesting and nonsensical and totally random-got-nothing-to-do-with-anything pieces.

Peace out, bitches!! (I had to)

Worst night of NOT sleeping EVER!!!

Why does it always happen like that? The night before you have to wake up really early you wake up REALLY early… and can’t fall asleep again. It’s like once you have been awake and laid awake for a few 20 to 30 minutes Sleep goes like, “Well that’s my shift over” and he NEVER comes back until you almost fall asleep at the wheel or at work or in church and then you think WORST EMPLOYEE EVER!!

Yes, this happened to me. I do think that the pizza I had should be blamed. Sleep probably thought, Woman how do you expect me to work under these conditions, you stuff your face with meaty stuff crust pizza and then you expect me to work while your body is jumping around like a mental person wearing a shower cap going “What can I do in here”. One thing I can say is that pizza about 2 hours before sleep is a no no… for reasons I shall not name here. 

I tried everything, putting my earphones in and listening to soothing music, opening the door, making sure that all sources off light are off, drinking water, laying really still and going “sleep-sleep-sleep-sleep-sleep” I even wished I could hire Mr Bean to snap me into sleep like he does his teddy.

Mr Bean, Teddy, Sleep.

Although if he had to be so close to me I would probably wet myself.

NOTHING!! So after about an hour of this I got up, made coffee (now I know what you are thinking but no, that’s soooo not the cause) and opened my laptop.  Then I washed my hands with this awesome scrub I bought at a market the previous day… seriously that stuff makes your hands feel like the skin has turned into velvet.

So after putting new music onto my phone and sorting through all of my pictures on both laptop and phone and then writing this exciting blog piece I feel tired again… and guess what? Its an hour till my alarm goes off. Murphy, you are a cold hearted skank!!
