Soooo….. I guess I can be quite girly, sometimes….




Like the title says, I like to be girly sometimes… ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t really do fashion all that much, but I like it when I manage to put up my hair pretty, like in the picture, or when I do an awesome mani, like below…. Corally with an accent-type thing in pearly white, I guess? ๐Ÿ™‚


Or this one is my latest…:



Royal Blue with Gold Satin… These last two are from OPI and the coral one is also from OPI but the pearly white one is from La Femme Beautรฉ… ๐Ÿ™‚



Corally again, Something New, from Sally Hansen’s Diamond Strength collection, and a new laquer I got from my new mobile company, who sent me a Goodiebox, as a welcome… The laquer has a really nice formula and is from So Susan, I believe it was… ๐Ÿ™‚


So yea, girly, girly me ๐Ÿ˜›


Even though I can get really impatient, I actually quite like doing my nails…. Which is the actual point of this post; I want to talk to you a bit about doing good things for yourself… ๐Ÿ™‚


Now, I have never been very good at doing good things for myself, but I recently decided that that is going to change, I AM going to get better at being good to myself, and not in a “buy what I want”-type way, but in a doing things that are good for me, cultivating calmness in my life…. ๐Ÿ™‚


Cultivating calmness in my life, like doing my nails, taking my time to do them, while listening to an audiobook, probably, or while watching a series that I really love… ๐Ÿ™‚

Or by making a pot of tea for myself every day, savouring the process of making the tea, the routine… And the heat of drinking the tea… ๐Ÿ™‚

And reading…. If not every day, then I will strive to take time out to read every other day… Read paperbooks, ebooks, listen to audiobooks… ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve always loved books, but I get overwhelmed easily, and I have struggled quite a bit with my concentration the past 10-15 years, due to my depression, I suspect… ๐Ÿ™‚ But I have rekindled my love of reading, and when I do take my time and sit down with a book, quite some time tends to fly by, which I quite enjoy too โค There are just so many things that Karsten wants to watch together with me, and I sleep quite a bit as well, so I have been neglecting my reading, unfortunately…. :-/ But I WILL get better โค I really want to read… ๐Ÿ™‚


I am actually thinking about branching out, into comics/graphic novels ๐Ÿ˜€ I bought some Star Wars graphic novels on Kindle, and I got a Serenity/Firefly one as well, and today I bought the Humble Dynamite Bundleย which should be good to get me started ๐Ÿ˜€ I am quite anxious to begin, to be honest ๐Ÿ™‚ Can hardly decide where to start ๐Ÿ˜€


I want to update my blog more often also…. Even when I don’t feel good… โค Because you deserve that… This was supposed to be My World in Words, and what good is it if I don’t include you in my entire World? ๐Ÿ™‚ I WILL be better… I AM better.. ๐Ÿ™‚ And you deserve the best, my loves… โค


But, too long, didn’t read: Being good to yourself is really important… It can relieve stress in so many ways… Give you those valuable timeouts throughout the day… โค


So, please, my loves…. Please, will you pledge to do something good for yourself, every day? ๐Ÿ™‚ It could be going for a walk… Writing a letter… Reading something.. Go get a massage… A haircut.. A manicure.. It can be anything, really… But do something that feels really, really nice, and that you enjoy immensely… ๐Ÿ™‚ And please share your experiences, ideas and what you decide to do for yourselves, in the comments…. ๐Ÿ™‚ I know I appreaciate getting a fresh perspective now and again, and maybe some of us need help coming up with ways to love ourselves a little bit… I know that last bit can be very, very difficult for some of us โค


Okay, my loves, it is almost five in the morning here… I best be off for now, although I do not feel sleepy yet…


Be safe, my loves, and live fantastically… Even if only for five minutes a day… โค

So, I met this girl half a year ago…. Or “met”, I guess… Virtually met….



A couple of weeks ago was my birthday, and this girl…. Let’s call her Jill…. Mostly because the name fits her, to my mind at least, but also because… Well, it’s her name… ๐Ÿ˜›


Anyways, this girl Jill, she sent me a birthday card, a really beautiful one…. Made of dots entirely, or, the flamingo is ๐Ÿ™‚ I love this card, and she is an absolutely lovely girl, and she sent it, physically to me, to my physical address, here where I live… ๐Ÿ˜€ I love that… โค AND she was really sweet and included a print of my favorite photo of her with her puppy Murphy…. ๐Ÿ˜€ I promptly put the photograph in my album of very special photos that I have been collecting in this particular album since 1997 โค


But I am getting ahead of myself…. Let us start at the beginning… Sorta… ๐Ÿ˜‰


I have a Facebook profile…. I rarely go on there anymore, I tend to forget about it, sometimes for months at a time… But, you see I am a member of a certain group there, on the Facebooks… SYSK Army… We are a group of fans of the podcast Stuff You Should Know… ๐Ÿ™‚ Wonderful people in that group, not quite normal, but that is most definitely one of the most charming characteristics…. You can be utterly yourself in this group, and that is truly wonderful, if you ask me…. I don’t think I have ever encountered that many awesome people in one place before, but I am not very wordly, so my experience is quite limited, I should think… ๐Ÿ™‚


Anyways, this podcast that we have all at one point listened to and fallen in love with can be found on Stuff You Should Knowย where you can find a podcast archive, and there is also a handy search bar (the “handy search bar” was coined in the earlier episodes, by one of the hosts, Josh Clark, and I have borrowed it from him), good for searching for specific episodes and blog posts and whatnot ๐Ÿ™‚


Anyways, around new years I was posting to the group, and Jill commented a lot, we were talking about streamers and sparklers… I love sparklers and streamers, I just didn’t know that streamers were called streamers… ๐Ÿ™‚ Jill helped me out… ๐Ÿ™‚ We just started talking a lot, became friends, and we text via Viber almost every day ๐Ÿ™‚ She and I have a lot in common, I guess you could say we have a kind of understanding when it comes to each others difficulties, and both of us are very interested in learning more about the other…. โค


Heh, she actually made a wordpress account, so she could comment on my blog, and follow other blogs if she fancy them ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is one of her very few posts:ย I Don’t Have A Blog – Sheep

I thought it was very clever! ๐Ÿ˜€


I love her dearly, I really do…. I like knowing that she’s there, kind of within reach, even though she lives in New Jersey, USA…. It is very comforting to me, knowing that she’s close by in Spirit…. Only a text away…. Or a Skype Video call…. I think that is absolutely awesome…. ๐Ÿ™‚


I have yet to figure out what we are going to do when I am in Indonesia next month, but I think iMessage should be doable, or contact via My World in Words ๐Ÿ™‚ I am bringing my iPad Mini at least and I hope for a data package or some sort of sporadic wifi, but time will tell I guess ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay then, so this actually turned out to be a mixed post… ๐Ÿ™‚ I was meaning to post about Jill, but came around to two or three different things, even if they were only handled a little bit ๐Ÿ™‚


I will post a little more in a second, I think…. I have been awake for 21 hours now, and I don’t feel all that tired yet ๐Ÿ™‚ But then again, I have slept for 15 odd hours almost every day these past couple of days, so maybe I was overdue to stay awake for quite a bit ๐Ÿ™‚


Be absolutely fantastic my loves…!
