Some Quiz Just Explained Me to Me

Okay okay so you’re not supposed to take these things too seriously. But listen, this thing kinda freaked me out. I mean, it was really accurate. Try it for yourself: 100 Things Personality  Test Like horoscopes, sometimes these things have a way of being incredibly generic and yet convincing enough to make every person feel … Continue reading

on turning 30

I turn 30 in November. I’m not upset about it, so don’t expect a woe-is-me post. (Though, this blog contains an unfortunate number of those, if you’re into that sort of thing.) I really don’t feel that grown up. Perhaps because I’m not making as much money as I thought I would be at this … Continue reading

A resolution I may try less hard to break

Is it too early to start talking about New Year Resolutions? Because eff it; I’m about to. Now, I normally don’t make resolutions since I know I will just break them. Most of the time they have to do with weight anyway, and we all know that weight-related resolutions go strong until about March, and … Continue reading

hi

Hi everyone. It’s me again, Laila. Remember me? Of course you do! Here I am! See? Right here. Where have I been? Well at work of course! But you’ve already been working kinda, (you say, with a shrug of your shoulder). Yes, yes well I have, but I went back and got a big girl job … Continue reading

Ignore This Post.

I have several draft posts set aside for myself, one of which I added just last night. Several are from this time last year, when I started  my blog.

So just stop denying it and keep reading. There’s a treat involved here. Thanks. Okay then, where was I? Ah yes – … Continue reading

About Motivation

Funny thing…I didn’t really mean to post my last post with the Walt Disney quote in it. But today, when I logged on, I noticed that it had been viewed 30 times! That’s more than 30 times my normal views! Hhaha. No but really, it is. I thought I put it on my WordPress app … Continue reading

Yesterday & Today

Yesterday afternoon, I was in a coffee shop – a local place with lots of flair (read: old furniture, a little bit of sticky on the table, and interesting characters), that gives you the ability to spend $1 on a coffee while you plug away for the next six hours on whatever writing, reading, staring … Continue reading

Back in March(ish)….

Every year since I’ve known my (now) hubby, I’ve had to have “the talk” with him. This year, with eight months of marriage under our belts (preceded by eight years of dating), I decided to do it again. But this time, I had a much more serious tone. Standard procedure for this seemingly annual occurrence … Continue reading
