Words can explain actions, but never excuse them. From my ex I have received a semi-explanation and an apology (though this wasn’t given under their own volition, and was instead offered when I finally called them out on their past behaviour) but it doesn’t change the fact that while we were together, they made conscious,… Read More For the People that Can’t Say ‘Abusive’
After spending a week in bed, unable to motivate myself into doing any of the number of things I should be doing as an adult, I was finally roused on Sunday with the promises of seeing a singer I’ve liked since I was 15.
I mentioned in a 2014 recap post that I had a short story accepted for publication by a literary magazine. Having been asked by everyone around me, “Are you proud? Because you should be.” I thought that I should let myself really be proud and give it a short post to itself. Preemptive apologies for… Read More Published
My blogging attempts in 2014 were quite abysmal and though I knew that my input to MittensKittens was minimal, I didn’t feel any nagging motivation to do something about it. Something I read during one of my blog-reading moments was a line somebody included in a post (if this was you, please tell me, I… Read More Who You Writing For?
2014 is two days away from ending and for once I am a little sad that the end is so near. This was the first year in a long time that I felt like I made progress in my life. Things finally moved forward rather than backwards or staying stagnant. So it’s time for a… Read More It’s a Wrap

Obviously, confining cats to one backyard is a chore. I’m not sure if you’ve ever owned a cat, but if you have then it’s pretty clear as soon as they learn to climb the fence that they are going to be spending some time visiting the neighbours you never have. I came home one night… Read More Mine By Extension

Today, I saw a moth in the bath and with a start, I realised I should go and get my camera to take a photo. I simply wanted to post a photo of a moth in a bath so I could use the IT Crowd’s joke, “Trapped! Like a moth, in a bath.” as the… Read More When Life Mimics Comedy
Because what education is complete without loud music, sweaty guys and sitting in the gutter? 1. You Will Never Go Out in Nice Weather No, what actually happens is that you find yourself going out in the peak of summer or the depth of winter. When it’s hot out it’s boiling inside a venue but… Read More Things Clubbing Taught Me
You may or probably-most-likely-did not notice my name change from MittensKittens to SighOhJessica, and this is due to my relationship status going from in-one to single. And Mittens was my nickname from that previous relationship.
Have you ever been told you remind someone of a certain person? For me, I’ve never reminded anyone of say, Angelina Jolie, but instead have been compared to Dobby the House-elf …and a camel. Not a special camel, just your average herd animal. Most recently, I have had my friends tell me that I have… Read More But Without the Laugh Track
