Firstly, apologies for not writing more this year. Eek! I was a bit caught up, and – admittedly – didn’t focus very much on some of the things I love doing. I promise to be better (and more selfish) in the new year. But a lot has happened and I needed some time to adjust and get my head around the new situation. Continue reading
Friends are important. I couldn’t do without them. They play such a big role in my life, and sometimes they are my saviours.
Every now and then I battle with self doubts, and I question everything I do, every turn and direction I take. Continue reading
It’s now been nearly two months that someone calls me his girlfriend, that I have a boyfriend. And you won’t believe it, I am still getting used to it. I have been waiting for this for so long, now I seem to struggle to comprehend it. Continue reading
A couple of months ago I tried to convince myself that I need to give a guy a chance. Even if there were little things that I noticed and didn’t like – ‘come on, Anna, don’t dismiss him so easily’ I said. So just to close that loop – I went on a second date with said guy and realised that I couldn’t look past those not so little things. It was a resounding ‘thanks but no thanks’ from me. Yet another one.
And then I went and reactivated Tinder, the app I loathed and deleted about 2.5 years ago, since Friend Guy (remember him?). Continue reading
I started chatting to this guy a few weeks back. He is responsive, funny, interested in me and how I tick. After a few days chatting via the app he suggested to talk on the phone – he called and we talked for nearly two hours. Continue reading
Hallelujah! Having turned 40 a few months ago, I think I have figured it out. Finally. At least for me. I believe I know what I want to do in the next few years (because ‘forever’ seems too long). And I am so, so excited! It feels weird, soothing, calming and reassuring. Continue reading
All of a sudden the last day of the year is upon us. How did that happen? It crept up on me, without warning – it was only May a few days ago. Continue reading
Auckland guy and I didn’t manage to meet up. I am gutted. He would’ve loved to catch up but apparently me reaching out to him 4 days ago was on too short notice. Continue reading
It is 5.30am and I made it – I arrived. Hallelujah! This was a long journey, very long considering I left my apartment on Tuesday morning and now it is Thursday. But, I arrived safely and my suitcase arrived with me. In fact, by the time I got to the luggage carousel it was already on its second lap. Off I went, trying to find out how best to get into the city without spending a fortune. Continue reading
Stop-over in Dubai done. Mitch (sitting in the row in front of me) and I went for a coffee at the airport. It’s good to chat to strangers. Strangers who are also travellers. They are the curios kind. Continue reading
