20Something and Surviving

The Problem of Being Leez

I’m turning into one of those people who thinkthat everything is about them and that the world is out to get them. It’s just that in my case its true.

Don’t believe me? Well here are 2 examples:

Firstly what was my dream job is fast becoming a nightmare. My travelling has slowed down which means I have to be in the office with my newly promoted boss-  a former lowly colleague. It seems that power has gone to her -nuff said- head and now shes a total bitch. Which does not sit well with me. So all good intentions went out the window when we had a very public shouting match in the corridors. Not pretty.

On the homefront, I’ve been back in Cape Town for over a month now and still I have not found a flat. I can’t believe how hard it is to find decent accomodation here. Or maybe i’m just way too picky. The search is still on and I’m getting so despearet that I may have to settle which is a major no no for me. I never like to compromise.  Please all you cape people: Give me some suggestions.

The love life (!) is going fine surprisingly mainly because there is really no real “love”. Get what I mean? Having fun though. Going for a ride on a boat this weekend. Next week its off to another wedding and this time I’m going prepared. Have my hip flask on standby. And I really shouldn’t.

Which segues to me not having any (hard) liqour in a long while because, being the social chameleon that I am, I’ve decided to supend the smoking and drinking whilst I prepare for the Big Walk taking place on the 9th. I’m told it should be fun. In the meantime, I’m attending a sports day tomorrow and because of the no alcohol rule I will not be lazing under the Gazebo as usual but rather participating in a  few sporting codes.

The disadvantage with being one of the youngest employees in an organisation is the old farts expect you to be interested in physical activities. And be good at it!

Okay, thats me in a few words, Have to actually do some work. Chat later.

Me In 20something Questions

I havent posted in a while and although a lot has happened I don’t know where to begin and I have no real desire to write apart from my job so I’m posting an email I received as my post. Feel free to repost as a meme.

1. I’ve come to realize that my last kiss was… last weekend??? God I need to get laid.


2. I am listening to… the silence interrupted by the tapping noise as I type this. It’s strangely comforting. 

3. I talk… constantly, non-stop. I suffer from verbal diarrhea. When Drunk. Otherwise I like to think of myself as the strong silent type.

4. I love… my life at the moment. Sure I haven’t slept in my own bed in weeks but traveling suits me. And I love Green.

5. My best friends are… annoying and really embarrassing but missing the wonderfulness that is me. Miss you guys. Sniff. Sip.

6. My love life… is complicated but not full of complications. Depending on when you ask its non existent.

7. I hate it when people ask… blank. Go ahead. Ask me anything. Just don’t expect a sincere, decent or non-sarcastic answer.

8. Love is… a conspiracy. It’s a part of a plot by Greeting card companies to bleed us dry of what little cash we have left. Love is guilty, love is dangerous, love is unavoidable. Love is a contradiction of contradictions.

9. Marriage is… an individual choice despite there being two individuals involved.

10. Somewhere, someone is thinking… I should have eaten that last slice of pizza.


11. I’m always… eating, talking, eating and more eating.

12. I have a secret crush on…  no-one. Don’t do secret crushes. If I like you, will tell you.

13. My cell phone…  is an extension of me. It is also due for an upgrade.

14. When I wake up in the morning…  I switch the freaking alarm off then sniff for coffee. Depending on the outcome of my nasal investigation I may go back to sleep.  

15. When I go to bed at night…  depending on the weather I remove my clothing.

16. Right now I am thinking about…   what the fuck am I doing up so late, actually posting this.

17. Babies are…   an inconvenience. And needy.

18. I get on myspace… never. May still have the account but haven’t been on in years.

19. Today I… will try to make it through the day without kakking someone out over their screw ups.

20. Tonight I will… sleep. or get laid.

21. Tomorrow I will… be on my way back to my new home.

22. Someone that will most likely repost this is anyone who hasn’t received this by email, anyone willing to share this info, anyone who likes memes. So basically if you’re bored and have nothing better to do: TAG YOU’RE IT.
