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
Oh ho, I am so witty! I’m sure I’m the first to make that pun! I was going to work ‘Frankly’ in as well. Basically, this is a beauty product review of Frank Coffee Scrub. First up, I’ll be totally honest and say it did not magically make my skin look like smooth velvety beauty incarnate.
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

Everyone could use a bit of advice now and then. But what if you’re the type who eschews all human contact and prefers to converse only with characters in your books? Well, er, then even they might not be able to help you. All kidding aside, as any avid reader will…
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

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. Since ‘Mittens’ was my relationship pet name, it makes sense to move on from the monniker… and embrace single-life.
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
Sometimes it seems like negativity is the hip perspective to have. Being cynical or darkly humorous about something is one thing, because if done well and with a sense of playfulness it’s pleasing and it’s status of ‘hip’ is valid. However, downright bitching over and over again while never offering any glimpse of cheer is… Read More Fake It Til You Make It
Personally, the message that I need to just ‘change your life’ constantly being slammed into my brain through social media is tiring. Yes yes, I get it, I should be living everyday like it’s my last and making the most of every opportunity so I can have the most awesome life possible. It’s just that to some… Read More Take a Risk, Make a Change
With the burgeoning success of posting videos on Vine, Instagram, Facebook etc, it is likely that you have come across some kind of short video of teenage girls doing something ’embarrassing’. Most likely you will see that these videos are accompanied by comments such as, “dumb sluts” / “would like to see them try that… Read More In Defence of the Teenage Girl
When I first signed up for wordpress, I’d spend an hour or more scrolling through tags and my reader reading people’s posts. I stopped doing that for a while and I can’t pinpoint an exact reason why besides general life. I’ve noticed a lull in readership, too (which is of course preposturous that people wouldn’t… Read More Extend the Reading!
