Other Blogs

"We write in response to what we read and learn; and in the end we write out of our deepest selves." ~ Andrea Barrett

Writing It Randomly was my first creation, but there are also two other blogs on which I speak my mind and share inspiration:

Self Improvement

The collaborative blog started with my cousin stems from one of our lazy, conversational Sunday afternoons.
I cannot say that I'm a big fan (or any fan at all) of Self Improvement per se, but I recognise the fact that our earthly existence requires personal growth in order to maintain or reach a joyful plain of contentment. Life is too short and too precious to spend it in a constant state of misery, and we thought that - if we write it out together - we could reach enlightenment faster.

Afrikaans

In my country, there are eleven official languages - Afrikaans, English, Ndebele, Northern Sotho, Sotho, Swazi, Tsonga, Tswana, Venda, Xhosa, and Zulu. Naturally, English is not the only language I am proficient in, but I'm ashamed to admit that I only speak two of them.
My family is bilingual, so although I love English, I also have a deep fondness for Afrikaans. In 2014 I found that sometimes there are certain feelings and topics I express better in Afrikaans, so I created my second blog as a platform for this purpose.

Happy reading! (Let me know what you think.)

Just FYI: "Let them eat cake" is a phrase widely attributed to Marie-Antoinette, but according to History.com, she probably never even said it.

Being Good in Bed & Other Unwholesome Habits

How are those New Year's Resolutions working out for you?
Sticking to my new morning routine is one that continued to kick my ass right into October. I was pretty motivated to kick off my newly designed routine but a few weeks into 2017 it tanked. Hard.

Living comfortably is a privilege not afforded to many and all things considered, I must admit that my life actually is quite plush. I have room to be lazy in, including - but not limited to - sleeping in almost daily. Maybe that's how I got all fluffed up. (I literally - and I do mean LITERALLY - piled on the body mass of an average sized person*, except it was all excess fat.)
The Why Whatever the reason(s) behind my massive weight gain over the past 15 years, I've finally had enough when it dawned on me that although weight has nothing to do with worth or beauty, lab results are the kind of numbers you need to pay attention to (more on this later).

I was done with my lack of discipline.

I was done with unhealthy choices…
