For anyone who is currently in a relationship, or has had one fail miserably, how accurate do you find the assumptions made about the sexes in this best seller: Men are from Mars, Women Are From Venus – Together Forever?
First, lets take a trip back to ‘caveman’ days
Mr Gray (writer man) says that to understand the fundamental differences between how MOST men and women think, and then; how arguments and misunderstandings in relationships arise, first imagine what life was like back in ‘caveman’ days and the typical gender roles that existed.
Did you know there is an ‘ideal’ time to post your carefully crafted social rants? And, yes, it differs from Instagram vs. Facebook vs. Linkedin. It turns out there are some very cluey social media analysts (I made up that job title. I don’t really know what they call themselves) who have studied the trends and data of all of us, social media whores, FOR YEARS. They can now confidently tell you specific time slots for posting – for maximum exposure and audience concentration, or whatever.
It’s 2 pm, and I’ve just returned to my desk after eating a salami and toasted cheese sandwich (*Ahem. I mean, a salad and a can of tuna) on my 30-minute lunch break.
“I could go a nap now” is my first thought, followed by: “I wonder if anyone would notice if I just crept under my desk for a minute?”.
I have a 9-5 desk job from Monday to Thursday. It’s not my most favourite thing to do with my time, but my boss is pretty easy going, it pays my bills and keeps me away from living a life of squalor – so I endure.
Fck. This was the most difficult headline to write ever.
(If this isnt what you were after and you want more of the mind taming shiz and self development reads, try this article instead:”Is everyone’s mind this negative?”)
This article is for anyone who:
- Runs their own business online;
- Wants to run their own business or start their own website but is too intimidated by all the mind-bogglingly-tricky ‘tech stuff’ that comes along with it.
This is the first article of my new ‘copywriting’ series which I’ll be posting over the next few weeks to let EVERYONE know that I am, in fact, now taking care of copywriting services for businesses and individuals.
I can’t think of a better way to explain copywriting to you than with this ordinary bag of coffee beans I bought this morning:
So, last year I invested around $7k (AUD) to study a Life Coaching course. It wasnt just a regular Certificate 4, it was a Diploma with the added subjects of mindfulness and meditation training (because I can’t ever just do something half-arsed).
Three months prior, I’d finished seeing an awesome & hilariously witty LC, myself and I wanted to keep on that onwards and upwards roller coaster (which I was actually deathly afraid of falling off of).
This article is written in response to Kyra Wing’s article “The Pill: Why I probably won’t ever use anything else”
The contraceptive pill has been a topic of hot debate for years now. Some of us chicks swear by it, like my writing mate Kyra here and some of us feel it’s literally the devil in human form (me).
Yesterday felt like one of those free for all – stack on’s – on me. It was the kind of day that left me seriously considering purchasing a one-way ticket to Spain – to remove myself from the sudden schemozzle I found myself in.
I’m sure, at some point, you’ve felt metaphorically squished by life too.
If you work in the corporate world – then you’ve surely heard the term ‘office politics’ before. The vibe in our office lately has been shit-on-a-stick, to say the least. It’s felt tense like everyone’s on edge, and short-tempered with each other.
We need to blast Black Eyed Peas: “Where is the love” down the hallway and force everyone to hug at the beginning of the day as a sort of ‘truce’
Last month I wrote an article about ditching my smartphone – in an attempt to slow down and simply my life – and following on in a similar fashion, I’ve now turned my attention to my overflowing wardrobe and, in particular, how to cull it down to just 33 basic necessities (sans my fugly dressing gown and collection of daggy period undies – there’s some things we women just shouldn’t have to live without).
Why? Because physical clutter begets mental clutter and I’ve been feeling zapped of energy, and unfocused – like I’d lost my writing mojo, lately.
And before you ask, no, it’s not an experiment in deprivation but, rather, with happiness.
