The Joy Journalist =)

JJ bookshelf iBooks 2017

Before the technology revolution took off 7 years ago, reading an actual book from a library or a bookstore was the norm. And being an avid reader/bookworm, there was nothing I liked more than escaping to my reading sanctuary.

World Kindness Day

Happy world Kindness day tomorrow ;)!

pollyjwhite

That’s apparently on Monday the 13th of November. If you didn’t know, don’t worry neither did I. What a shame that we have to be reminded to do something as fundamental to our well being as to be kind!

Let’s practise before Monday, shall we? Not because it’s a special day but because we can…

I shared a meal with someone this lunchtime. It was a lamb roast lunch, all but for the Yorkshire puddings, that I forgot. The pudding was pineapple upside down cake and custard (made with fresh pineapple.) I know! It tasted better than it looks, my smiley pud.20171107_161926So much for the diet. I’ll start tomorrow.

What do you recommend as the best way to show kindness? All ideas greatly received.

Long Distance Relationship uppage playlist

LDR

What people don’t tell you about long distance relationships is how much an emotional roller coaster it really is. There will be days where you’re the headstrong driven go-getter kicking goals while saying with a smile, I’m totally fine! I miss them [SO], but I’ll be fine.*
*and me being a logical person that was me for the first 3 months! I have a tendency for delayed emotional reactions. Read the rest of this entry »

Finders Keepers exploration =)

Going to any design market makes me realise how talented artsy people are πŸ˜‰ The moment you embark into the Royal Exhibition building, you seriously have no idea where to look! The twinkling lights, the colours, the hustle and bustle of storekeepers and customers chit chatting against the backdrop of good food, really inspired me =)

You don't have to, if you don't want to

Can’t seem to get this song and melody out of my head. So I penned this original song on Monday after work way back when πŸ˜‰

The Sun & The Moon Best Friends

My awesome guy best friend’s visit ended today πŸ˜… And to remind myself that it’s not all doom and gloom… I published a short story I wrote late last year! (inspired by our long distance friendship!). P.S: Of course I draw parallels to Cecelia’s Ahern, When Rainbows end- story of Rosie & Alex to our friendship. But turns out we beat them!

They were only 4, 806km away (Dublin to Boston), 7 hrs in flight time & 5 hrs in time difference! So lucky. For us it’s 11,358km (Middle East to Australia), 17 hrs in flight & 7hrs (in non daylight savings) apart 😱. Not only that, Rosie & Alex could call and visit whenever. While for us, that luxury doesn’t exist!

But honestly? The distance has made our friendship bond stronger than I have ever had with anyone. To the point where it doesn’t matter if we don’t talk every day or that we barely get to see each other, it will always be the same πŸ˜‰ nothing will ever change. ❀

Happy readings ;)!

Week 2: Self compassion- Kindness Challenge

Self compassion

Yes I know, the point of the Kindness challenge is to focus on a different prompt every week! But with uni exam prep, blogging didn’t really happen. Although I did subconsciously focus on the challenge prompts anyway πŸ˜‰ so it counts!
