The beginning of the end of the end of the beginning has begun.

Things that happened while I wasn’t on the internet because I was at Zara:

You know I bitch and moan about everything all the time but today I was in line at Zara, waiting to pay for my leather goods with 80% off (bless Zara sales and their leather) when the lady in front of me was very very pregnant, like “someone call the midwife ‘cus she’s about to pop” pregnant, complained that she should be attended to first. To what the pretty cashier girl said “it’s a clothes store, we’re not obliged by law to have priority lines”. And the lady continued to stand in line and wait while two other costumers proceeded to pay. Well the thing is, I thought I should say something, and I did. I said “It might not be in the law that you have to have priority lines, fine, clothes isn’t exactly a priority (I only said this to make a point, of course clothes is a priority…duh) but the fact that every single person before this very very pregnant lady didn’t let her pay before they did goes to show that these laws NEED to exist, because being nice to people isn’t a rule in this world, it’s the sad exception!”. She said thank you, and we both just stood there in line for another 5min. It’s like it’s not bad enough that she has to carry the huge belly around, and she also has to wait in line to pay for that great black trench coat and amazing crepe overalls and black leather pants! At least she’s a stylish pregnant lady, just that should be enough.

If I’m ever pregnant, I’m gonna shove people away with my huge belly and pretend it’s none of my business.

"I’M FIVE!!!!"

This is me. Everyday when I drive to work. Every single time.

The only reason I ever learn a new software is out of pure laziness, it’s when I get to the point of “There has got to be a better/quicker way to do this *opens google* there it is!”.
I’m 5. And lazy. 
  1. push yourself to get up before the rest of the world - start with 7am, then 6am, then 5:30am. go to the nearest hill with a big coat and a scarf and watch the sun rise.

    2. push yourself to fall asleep earlier - start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. wake up in the morning feeling re-energized and comfortable.

    3. erase processed food from your diet. start with no lollies, chips, biscuits, then erase pasta, rice, cereal, then bread. use the rule that if a child couldn’t identify what was in it, you don’t eat it.

    4. get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. fry tomatoes and mushrooms in real butter and garlic, fry an egg, slice up a fresh avocado and squirt way too much lemon on it. sit and eat it and do nothing else.

    5. stretch. start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. roll your head. stretch your fingers. stretch everything.

    6. buy a 1L water bottle. start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in a day, then try drinking it twice.

    7. buy a beautiful diary and a beautiful black pen. write down everything you do, including dinner dates, appointments, assignments, coffees, what you need to do that day. no detail is too small.

    8. strip your bed of your sheets and empty your underwear draw into the washing machine. put a massive scoop of scented fabric softener in there and wash. make your bed in full.

    9. organise your room. fold all your clothes (and bag what you don’t want), clean your mirror, your laptop, vacuum the floor. light a beautiful candle.

    10. have a luxurious shower with your favourite music playing. wash your hair, scrub your body, brush your teeth. lather your whole body in moisturiser, get familiar with the part between your toes, your inner thighs, the back of your neck.

    11. push yourself to go for a walk. take your headphones, go to the beach and walk. smile at strangers walking the other way and be surprised how many smile back. bring your dog and observe the dog’s behaviour. realise you can learn from your dog.

    12. message old friends with personal jokes. reminisce. suggest a catch up soon, even if you don’t follow through. push yourself to follow through.

    14. think long and hard about what interests you. crime? sex? boarding school? long-forgotten romance etiquette? find a book about it and read it. there is a book about literally everything.

    15. become the person you would ideally fall in love with. let cars merge into your lane when driving. pay double for parking tickets and leave a second one in the machine. stick your tongue out at babies. compliment people on their cute clothes. challenge yourself to not ridicule anyone for a whole day. then two. then a week. walk with a straight posture. look people in the eye. ask people about their story. talk to acquaintances so they become friends.

    16. lie in the sunshine. daydream about the life you would lead if failure wasn’t a thing. open your eyes. take small steps to make it happen for you.

Is it sad that just reading about doing half of these things makes me want to stick a fork in my eye opposed to actually do them?
