“She fully embraced the occasional desire to escape real life.”
Dungeons & Dragons explained in 10 words or less.
Also, to hell with the word ‘occasional’. It always takes me at least three tries to get it right.

Literally, there is a storm brewing outside my house at this very second and I’m in SUCH a productive mood.
Does stormy weather get you energised too?

“Anybody else get toast moods?”
If you’re anything like me, you’re a lover of toast.
My question for you all though is…
Do you ever get toast moods?
My toast moods vary.
Some days I like piping hot toast where the butter melts and the bread goes gooey.
Other days I like cold toast where the butter stays firm.
Vegemite is, of course, a necessity regardless of the toast mood.
They’re a thing.

“When you find your love for life again, everything clicks.”
The past few weeks have been a period of such transformation for me.
After just two weeks of working with @wholehealthwithemma and making positive changes to my daily schedule, my nutrition, my activity, my sleep and my life in general, I honestly feel like I have a new lease on life.
Thank you Emma for helping me understand the steps I need to take to keep my body and mind healthy and happy.
Ugh. I just feel so much relief.
I already feel like I have so much more time and energy to put towards the pray4kates blog too so stay tuned for more frequent new posts!
Life is good.

Being alone doesn’t have to be a bad thing 🖤
Look After Yourself
I initially thought to post this blog on my business blog, but I figured it might have a place here too. It’s not a short story. It’s not a fun recipe or a game review. The aim is to share a simple message: Look after yourself.Continue reading “Look After Yourself”

A little existential crisis every once in a while never hurt nobody.
Except it did.

Let’s Talk About Santa’s Reindeer For A Second
Last night, my brain decided that I wasn’t going to sleep until I made up an entire story about Santa’s reindeer, specifically Donner and her regrettably unfortunate hella boring name when compared to the ✨spicy✨ names of the rest of the crew. Enjoy…Continue reading “Let’s Talk About Santa’s Reindeer For A Second”

I asked my cat what today’s shorts post should be and this is what he said.
Korean Marinated Grilled Beef (Bulgogi)
Ok, so there are no pictures to help you envision this dish…but that just leaves it open to interpretation which is way more fun, in my humble opinion. UPDATE: I found some images of this dish in action so you can put your imagination away for now. This recipe is brought to you by the talented chef (and energy drink enthusiast) Liam McKay. He’s done the hard work in putting this recipe together, so you (and I) don’t have to. So, without further ado, here is a delicious (and very easy to make) rendition of a fantastic dish…Korean marinated grilled beef, a.k.a. bulgogi. It takes just 10 ingredients and 4 easy steps! Enjoy…Continue reading “Korean Marinated Grilled Beef (Bulgogi)”

It’s Been A Hot Minute…
Yeah, sorry about that. It’s been a long while since I actually sat down and wrote something here aside from the weekly Shorts posts. I guess I’ll use this as an opportunity to go over a little bit of a life update. If this bores you, scroll on. If you’re nosy, read on ¯\_(ツ)_/¯Continue reading “It’s Been A Hot Minute…”
