I just found out about this feature - so here goes!
|I will post opinion pieces and reviews here - stay tuned|
|Today is a fine gloriously sunny day. It's weird how the entire world is on pause at the moment but i guess its nice that we at least have nice weather. I am off work all day today and tomorrow so plan on spending some time reading, doing yoga and writing. I am battling anxiety thoughts so hopefully the yoga will help. I have noticed since the pandemic my anxiety has been worse. Am trying to fight through it. Hopefully some creative writing will help
I just logged on today after a while of not being here. I have plans to get back into writing now that the whole country is on lockdown. What particularly interests me is the flash fiction section so I'll have a wander around there sometime.
Thank you to the mysterious user who bought me membership, my creative side thanks you.
All the best, take care
|Today was a bit strange - all I did today was have a barbecue with my family, yet I feel so tired! I'm wrecked! I feel like I've gotten up really early and done a load of work.
Tomorrow I said to myself I would challenge myself to be more social. So I want to go to the coffee shop tomorrow and order something. Just something small. I told myself I need to challenge myself once a week, and today I chickened out of going to dance class so I should do something.
I wanted to write so much but now that I'm at my keyboard I'm lost for words. I finished the dreamcatcher for my friend, I wonder if I'll get the chance to give it to him. I hope so.... or maybe I can just send it to him.
Tomorrow I'm off to see Despicable Me 3, I love minions so I'm really looking forward to it. So cute! I'll write a review afterwards.
Peace out x
|I feel like today dragged. I didn't not enjoy myself, but I recently quit going to this music camp and I've been feeling guilty about it ever since. It just seemed like such a good opportunity. But I also think I learned a lot - I now know more about my limitations, and that I need more alone time in between all that people time. I got into an argument with a friend about it because he thought I should have pushed through my emotions and done the whole week anyways, and the thing with me is that I keep needing other people's approval. I wanted him to support my decision to leave the camp, rather than just being confident in myself and what I decided. We are at a bit of a standstill at the moment, he has his opinion and I have mine. So I guess it's just about being okay with that. Personally I'm a bit offended that he won't support me and my decision. But after a lot of thinking I have come to the conclusion that I made the decision myself to quit camp, so that's okay. I had my reasons. I can take responsibility for that. So now I need to decide something else, and I will also be taking responsibility for that. I need to decide whether I'll take on that volunteer manager role in two weeks at this festival. I feel like it'd be an adventure and a nice challenge, but I said the same thing to myself for the camp and look how well that turned out. So I might just turn the co -ordinator's offer down and just offer to be a stage assistant. Now that I'm not really talking to my friend, my main source of support is gone and I don't think I can do it without him. I am too insecure and worry too much.
I have stopped writing my book for a week. With the camp's dramas going on and then me moping and feeling bad about quitting, I've just somehow pushed it aside. Hopefully will pick it up again in the next few days.
|Someone's throwing eggs at our house and I'm the only one who finds it funny !
I think we should make an omelette!
My parents are looking out their windows suspiciously like MI6 spies and it's making me feel uneasy. I think it's been the fourth day in a row our house has been hit by eggs. Personally I just found out I passed my exams yesterday so I'm happy happy. Also I feel like the egg throwing fiasco has given my dad something to do with his time. So often he spends his days watching TV all day and not doing anything, at least now he has a bit more focus. My mother is worried we're being targeted because our house is the only one that's being thrown at. I personally don't mind so much.
Although I hope they don't throw anything heavier than eggs at our house. That wouldn't be good.
In other news I watched The Mummy and Baywatch yesterday - reviews to follow.
|So it's the end of the sunny day - today we went into town and did a few things - bank, library, shopping. I got a king size pot noodle which I love so I'm very happy with that. One thing that's been worrying me is something I noticed in the car. I was using the mirror in the car and I noticed a small crack on my front tooth. Just running vertically down. Is it broken? Will it split into two and then I'll have ''three'' front teeth? I'm really worried about it (as I always am) so I'm going to book a dental appointment for two weeks time. In those two weeks I'll have a think whether I really do think something is wrong and if I decide I'm okay then I'll just cancel the appointment, but if I still feel concerned by then I'll go. I have a bit of money left over from my temp job so I can spend it on that. Although, you know, if nothings wrong, it's just a waste of money to be throwing around. But I'm so so worried something is seriously wrong with my teeth. I brush and floss everyday so I don't get it. Do you?
|So it's another sunny day in Ireland. Let me tell you this doesn't happen often. I was supposed to get up early today to go to the park with my mother, but alas my lazy self refused to get up before 12. Hopefully we will head out for a little bit after lunch. I'm thinking maybe walking in the shops will be nice, sunbathing sounds a bit hot - esp in this weather. Someone threw eggs at our house again today, my dad's having a field day. Personally I don't really care - they're just eggs. But I guess it depends on whether they throw more than eggs next time eg rocks. I hope they don't throw rocks. That would be bad. We're not really sure what to do we're not that close with our neighbours so we can't ask them for help. If anyone has any ideas I'm all ears.
|So I went to see Wonder Woman recently. After checking Rotten Tomatoes I decided to see this film instead of the originally planed 'Baywatch'. I just saw so many bad reviews for Baywatch that I wanted to make sure my money was well spent. I heard from a colleague at work that it was worth the money, so there you go. That's how I made my decision.
I originally thought the cinema had the special offer of a student movie ticket plus popcorn/drink for only €8. Alas, I found out on the day that this only applies on Tuesdays - it was Friday. So I quickly walked outside in shock and debated whether I should fish out an extra €6 for the same deal. It was so expensive - €16 for movie and food? Feck that.
In the end I decided to go in anyway. It was a special celebratory day - I was going to the cinema to celebrate having finished my four week job contract. It was so challenging that I wanted to do something to commemorate the end of it.
So there I was - fishing out €16 for a movie that was waaaay overpriced. I went into the screen place, I sat down.
Boy ,was it cold. I quickly put on my jumper, which I had taken off outside because it was so warm.
I'm going to fast forward a bit now. Basically the movie began, and in between my random facebooking and watching the movie I actually did relax and get to get 'into' the film. My thoughts? I feel like it's a bit hyped up. Wonder Woman had such good reviews I was excited to go watch it and I thought it would be amazing. While I agree that the acting is very good and the chemistry we see between Diana and Steve is really sweet, I found Diana's insistence on Aries' existence a bit immature and silly. We were in the real world, of course he doesn't exist. And then when Aries finally showed up, it was just a bit stupid seeing them fight each other. Or listening to him talk and waste time when he could have crushed Diana. But I guess that was the storyline.
Would I see Wonder Woman again? Absolutely not. I even left the movie thinking maybe I should have see Baywatch instead. At least I'd be going in with low expectations. What do you guys think?
Rating - 3/5 stars
