Don’t you just hate it when you’re in such a good mood and one person can ruin your whole day? That happened to me recently, and I realised there’s an easy way to avoid that.
I know you’re expecting to read some wonderful I’m-no-longer-a-sugar-addict story, or that I miraculously lost 5kgs since I’ve picked up this healthy habit, but no. It’s not one of those stories. It’s actually very boring; because to tell you the truth, I don’t feel the changes I expected.
It’s a new year and so, with 2016 in our rearview mirrors, it’s time to reflect on the year that has passed and how I want 2017 to be different.
Tinder is a very popular online dating app. It’s a platform where you can meet new people, possibly a love interest, new friend or the perfect match. But after using Tinder for a few weeks, I realised it isn’t just for getting to know new people, it’s about getting to know yourself.

Resolutions! It’s that time of the year and in spite of my reluctance to jump on the resolution bandwagon, in the end (or should I say beginning) I decided to set goals for myself. I do however have a slight alteration to the Classic Resolution. I struggle to finish projects and maintain my goals, so […]
It has arrived! This will be my last segment in the ABC of self-improvement. I have enjoyed writing this so much and I can honestly say it has been for the better. Although I still slip up, I still lose my temper and resort to being lazy rather than productive, I feel better. Rome wasn’t built […]
