Rollercoaster

It amazes me how much of a roller-coaster ride of emotions the female mind can harbour in a small space of time. I experienced this over the weekend, and today. Actually, particularly today. There were times when I felt happy then nek minnit feeling all droopy and depressed. I hope this is normal for girls, and it's not just me.

Feelings of inadequacy - do you have these? feeling as though you wish you were as good/pretty/cool as someone else. people like her better than me. Constantly comparing yourself to others and the like. Gaaaah. It's like a competition and comparison trap, when you lose sight (or have not yet gained sight) or how awesome/unique you are. 
Every time you think these sorts of thoughts, you're taking away from how great you could be. I'm not saying you ought to go round professing how awesome you are (coz no-one likes that person...), just that you're hinging your own happiness on the approval of others, which is defs not the way it should be. 

It's a vicious cycle...the more you do it, the more insecure you feel :(

On another note...am currently loving aztec prints after a friend showed me the uber cool aztec leggings she bought. I got some aztec patterned shorts that I've been wearing to death since I bought them and am now keen as to rock more aztec prints...

A ponder..

Just having a wee think.
Habits. When does a habit become a bad habit? When you think about the thing/person over 10 times a day? When you put it before other things that should be more important?
hmmmmmmmmmmmm

(I could sit pondering about life for hours...)

Also, had the most delicious tapas and conversation with the sister tonight.
&& Hamilton trip this weekend! Excite!

My little corner of the world

Moved into the new flat yesterday afternoon! Not only is it a lovely place, but it's also clean and the new flatties are tops :) I'm thinking this year is going to be a goodie and can't wait to see what's in store! Its awesome to be back cooking and gyming with my amazing friend again too. Cannot wait for the 17th of March: it's the weekend following my birthday, it's St Pats (the biggest night of the year in Palmy) && our flat warming! Gonna be epic as! YAY. Here are a few snaps of the house...

Meanest sound system out

Kitchen. Notice all the eggs, one flattie works for an egg company so we are never short!

Hallway. My room on the left, Dan and Emma on the right.

My usuals - Johnny and the photo heart with my favourite people :)

The amazingly awesome calendar my lovely sister made for me :)

oh, and wanted to show this xmas prezzie from the mothership, a super cute tin for 'random crap'. And crackup how on the side of the tin it says 'Warning: Bend knees while lifting box'  haha!

I love the new place, and now that I've sorted out/decorated my room, it defs feels like my 'me' space :)
