I Joined A Gym – Say What?!

I took a big step in my personal self-improvement journey a couple of weeks ago by joining a gym. Anybody who knows me and is reading this is  now probably trying to stifle a snigger. I wouldn’t blame you as I was one of the most unhealthy and unfit people there is. I say was because […]

Joy Vs. German: Round 3: Failure To Learn

I really do not know why I am writing this post because it is going to be the same old ramble again. You all seem to like reading these types of posts though. I bet you are laughing at me fluently in German…… Well, the last time I updated you on my journey to learn the German language […]

Yay For Achievements!

Firstly, an apology for missing last Saturday’s quotes session, and indeed, for being late in posting this topic in general. The past week has been hectic allowing me no time to delight in blog writing. But today, I am back with a bang – or at least a spark. So, I was shortlisted for the […]

The Happiness Project: The Beginning or the End?

The Happiness Project. For 7 months I have persisted in posting how I have lived my life according to Gretchen’s suggestions, and how I planned to live it for the coming weeks. I made the attempt to sound cheery and show that this book may indeed be changing my life. But has it? Not really. […]

The Happiness Project – July Edition

Another month gone by! If this project does nothing else for me, it will have made me realise how fast the time can go by! It can actually be quite scary. So scary that it can often make my meant-to-be-schedueled posts go up late. Better late then never they say though so let’s crack on!
