On completion of high school I let myself go. From being a reserved, exemplary girl and obedient daughter to being the girl your parents wouldn’t want you associating with. I got into a relationship with an older boyfriend who I saw as a bad boy and adored him for that. Mixed up with the “cool” […]

Good Intent

Have the past couple weeks been rough for anyone else? Whether you’ve had a doozy of a week, are at your breaking point, still diligently working on that “take care of myself first” New Year’s Resolution, or are just looking for any excuse to treat yo’ self, take some time to indulge yourself in one […]

existential dilemmas

For anyone in manufacturing or who works at my current company, you know the andon concept. For the rest of you, it’s basically a way of calling attention to a problem (and in many cases, stopping “production” while the problem is investigated) that originated in Japan…and we all know I love Japanese everything. I think I’ve needed […]

The Aro-droid

I haven’t gotten around to writing about how as humans we have all gone through being “played”. A lot of times this is when we’ve seen the red flags and chosen to ignore them. A lot of times this is also when we chose to believe that a person we trust not to “play” us […]

Once in a Lifetime Adventure

A couple of months ago I saw this cheap ticket to Israel on the internet and told my mom that I want to go there. And she thought that I was nuts! So she started calling her friends immediately just to tell them that I was nuts. Luckily, after the 10th call, one of her […]

By Grace Through Faith

Life is filled with choices. There are small ones like what ice cream flavor you want or what fast food place you want to eat at. Then there are bigger ones like what college you are going to, what career you want, and if you want to marry that girl/boy. One of the biggest choices […]

Things Carla Loves

Okay, so people post some stuff that I just want to scream, ‘What the fuck are you fucking thinking, you fucking dickhead?’  So I’ve decided to create “Shut Up and Hold My Fucking Margarita” questions to abolish some ignorant-as-fuck myths that people seem to earnestly believe because they’ve obviously never heard of Google before, let […]

Fire Breathing Dimetrodon Time

With season 22, Doctor Who was back in its old home of Saturday evenings, but with longer, forty-five minute episodes. Colin Baker got a run of six serials in this slot and some of them are a little entertaining. “Attack of the Cybermen” is credited as being written by Paula Moore, but it’s apparently a […]

Site Title

A fictional story: It was a rainy morning as I walked towards the school. My neighbour had joked about his old schooldays in the far off village that he as a student in a government school, rainy days were holidays. In summer, during classes if there is a rain in the afternoon, the schoolmaster has […]

Glasgow by Night

What would the humans be without us? Nothing! Without our ambition to drive them on they would still be beating each other over the head with rocks and sharp sticks. Oh well, we have plenty of time and they have almost none left. Give it a century and their wasteful industry and infinite capacity for […]

(In my best Morgan Freeman voice) I must admit I didn’t think much of Andy Dufrense first time I laid eyes on him; looked like a stiff breeze would blow him over…. …..Wait, wrong story. The quiet port side city of Brunswick is the county seat of Glynn County, Georgia. Home to Glynn County Detention […]

Keeping My Head Above Water

To pay tribute to four years without a dear friend, I decided to tell part of her story & the impact it has had on so many of us. I met Kim through support groups that we went to every week. At first, we would only smile at each other, but once we found out […]

Aphoristic Album Reviews

Kate Bush‘s 1982 album The Dreaming was excellent, but it wasn’t especially commercially successful. She’d previously enjoyed ground-breaking UK success; her debut single ‘Wuthering Heights’ made her the first female artist to hit UK number one with a self-penned song. Her third album, 1980’s Never For Ever, was the first studio album by a female […]
