What To Expect When You Are Expecting

Hey guys,

There has been some radio silence on my part recently. I am alive and kicking, just struggling to find the motivation to do anything productive. I’ve been thinking about my blog a lot but can’t find the energy to start writing something. It’s a bit of a slump. I’ve even just been rereading the same books rather than delve into anything new. (As much as I love ACOTAR, I really need to find something else to read!)

It isn’t all miserable, far from it really. There are some exciting times ahead for my fiance and me- our dynamic duo is going to become a trio in May 2019. We are expecting our first baby (a lovely little girl) and we are so in love with a person we have yet to meet. A lot of exciting changes are coming about.

Day 20 – Would You Consider Yourself an Optimist or Realist?

I think everyone is a little bit of an optimist in life, regardless of how they think. We all want to see the positive outcomes in things, no matter how big or small. And sometimes we are a little bit pessimistic. Continue reading “30 Day Writing Challenge – Day 20”

Day 18 – Describe Your First Love and First Kiss (Of Significance)

This could be… interesting. Good prompt and we could probably say a lot on the matter.

I’ve definitely taught myself not to look back in anger. It is my past and we live on regardless of it.

Let’s disregard silly things we do as kids when boys were yucky and I was more interested in rolling down hills and climbing trees.

I was 14 and I was in love. Continue reading “30 Day Writing Challenge – Day 18”

Day 17 – Your Favourite Place to Go

This is kind of a hard one for me because for the past few years, what with life and work and university, I haven’t really had nearly as much free time as I would have liked. Now that I’m driving and am in a different working environment I have a little bit more freedom but, as it turns out, that hasn’t really helped too much. I still don’t get out nearly as much as I’d like to, I’m always just too tired. I’m thinking that I will keep this prompt more local rather than choose someplace across the world (far and unreasonable). So, my favourite place to go is actually anywhere in the Scottish Highlands and sometimes the Islands.

Day 14 – What Tattoos You Have & If They Have Meaning

I think tattoos and piercings are a great way to express yourself. More so tattoos, but the principle still stands. It’s a way to express yourself without going out of your way to affect others around you, it subtly tells something about who you are and what you love. I feel like they both get such a bad rap but I’m a firm believer of each person to their own so you want to write it on your skin then you do you.

Day 10 – Put Your Music on Shuffle and Write the First 10 Songs

Anyone that knows me knows that as well as my books, my great love is singing. I don’t think I’m good at it but I love singing out loudly (the louder, the better it comes out). Long drives are the best because it very quickly turns into a live show featuring yours truly. for this prompt, I just stuck my Spotify on shuffle and this is the result. I’m quite happy with the little playlist it created. Maybe it will be turned into a new CD for my car. Continue reading “30 Day Writing Challenge – Day 10”
