Hello, it’s Asta again.

Firstly, let’s get something out of the way. Sorry I couldn’t post for a while. My mom had a humanish calamity. Her tail was drooping and her head was hanging. Today her tail wags weakly, but at least her head is up. Now I get a chance to catch up at […]

Legacy – Ring My Bell and Remember What It Sounds Like

If you’ve ever read some of my earlier posts, you’ll know that my ideal is to be remembered when I’m gone. I believe the things you do in life dictates the legacy that you leave when you die.

At toastmasters I was doing my CC10 (the last speech in the competent communicator manual before you […]

Skippy the Rabbit Gets a Shock – A Children’s Story

Once upon a time there lived a family of furry white rabbits. They lived in a hole in the ground.

Skippy the rabbit was smaller than his brothers, Hoppy and Jumpy. He was also a little bit clumsy, because a wild dog hurt his leg while chasing after him when he was a tiny, fluffy […]

Trust Me The Same

This last week I had rather a harrowing experience. We booked my ticket, and because I’ve heard bad experiences from Mango call centre agents when trying to book with my guide dog, I never even considered them. I then went for the next cheapest option, which was SAA. The first glitch was their site that […]

The Wonder of Worship

The other day I read something interesting that was so profound to me: Worship is the only gift we can give to God that he hasn’t given us first. We love Him because He loved us first. We give our time, money and talents, because He makes it possible.

Now, yesterday I went with a […]

My First Athletic Achievement

I was 17 years old. It was athletics day at our school, and I was sitting on the pavilion shouting insults at the opposing team, the way it always happened. I resolved that I was not going to put my feet on the athletic track. “I’m not a sporty person, and don’t like it either,” […]

Self-Conparison – Not For Me Thanks!

If you have self-esteem issues like me, then you are inclined to compare yourself and measure yourself against others. Are you blind, and struggle with mobility? Are you a woman and can’t be miss perfect?

Doing this has put me into a world of pain. “If others can, so can I,” I kept telling myself. […]

The Bone Garden

This post is based on a prompt where I have to use the name of my favourite book as the title of my post. Yes, you guessed it – the name of my favourite book is The Bone Garden by Tess Gerritsen. I love Tess Gerritsen period. But if I have to choose her best, […]

Why Me?

So here I am, just after 1 in the morning, lying awake. I think writing is sometimes therapeutic, so I’m going to write. Maybe by writing and getting this thing off my chest, I can help myself, and, hopefully, help someone else sometime.

As you might have gathered if you have read some of my […]
