On depression and what it means to me.

I’ve tried to write about this for the longest time but somehow I never had the time or I was too tired or not in the mood to write or something else to actually do it. Depression is not an easy thing to talk about. Not so much because society is still very uncomfortable with it and makes it a taboo. But because depression can only ever fully be understood by those who found themselves engulfed in this mindnumbing darkness. Everyone else usually has an opinion ranging from complete ignorance and well meant advice to educated guesses and empathic imagination....more

new experience: the warm up is not the work out

Hi folks,I went running on Tuesday, despite all the sore muscles and it went really well. So technically this post should be called run #1 & work out #2, but since the running is quite boring actually, I'm not writing about it.I have also decided that I will start to count from the beginning if I miss a work out due to acute laziness. A bit like an alcoholic starts to count from the beginning when they slip up....more

work out review #1

If anyone remembers, I started this blog to write about how I'm doing with getting back into sports. That means, it's time for a work out review!Monday morning, 6 a.m., my alarm goes off and even though I'm a morning person and I like my ring tone, it is harsh and I don't want to get up. I seriously contemplate not getting up and sleeping for another hour until I have to get up to go to work, but I don't want to be able to call myself a quitter, so I get up and fight the urge to sleep on the floor....more

All I wanted was any running tee

I went shopping on Friday. I needed a new running tee and a new sports bra. In the end I got only the running tee but that is a whole different story.I was browsing through the (sparse) women's section of the running department looking for a short sleeved something that would feel light to the touch but not entirely "plasticky"....more

London 2012: The opening ceremony

Even though I have already watched the women's football (and I don't even like football!) matches on Wednesday, the Olympics don't start until after the opening ceremony. And what a ceremony it was.I realize it was not the best (whatever that means) opening ceremony of all times, but it was AWESOME. This was the most wonderfully quirky, absolutely kooky, inherently British best thing....more

Re: There's a Vacuum Where My Heart Used To Be

The other day I wanted to write a bog about how I feel in my own skin, trapped inside myself with a depression. Then I stumbled over Beth Hommel's blog postabout her own depression and suddenly there was no way I could've written my own thing. What she wrote described me perfectly. I kept nodding my head in accordance....more

the music business trumps my depression

I started this blog because I wanted an outlet for my depression. I should've known that wanting to be alone and do nothing is not a very creative source for blogging, hence the absence of posts. Anyhoo, now that I have it, I might just use this blog for everything else on my mind, like this profusely interesting Mashable article on headliner.fm....more
