An Observation About Mea Culpa


We had a bit of a problem at work the other day when I was under the impression we had agreed on A with the boss, whereas my colleague was under the impression we had agreed on B. General confusion followed, inconveniencing some customers, but the situation was fairly quickly resolved and the day continued as normal.

I was quietly hoping I had been the one to misunderstand our discussion with the boss, because it would be far easier to live with, somehow. It turned out I had been right, and I actually felt a little embarrassed.

Apparently I can’t wait to have an opportunity to apologise for something.

Hello, Miss Judgemental Me!


I’m sorry to say that our new office intern is Miss Tight Vocal Fry personified, and I wish I could tell her to never speak ever around the office, because she makes my throat hurt. #releasethethroat!

Weighing The Options


Turns out working for an animal shelter is good for my personal development. I tend to be a people-pleaser, but as much as I hate saying no to people and disappointing them (!possibility of conflict klaxon!), I’d hate it even more if any of the rescue animals ended up in an uncaring, negligent home. If you’re clearly, actually, looking for a stuffed animal that you can get rid of when it no longer amuses you, it’s a no from me, and no two ways about it.

The High Cost of Sensitivity


My high sensitivity sometimes ends up costing me a lot of money (see e.g. Exhibit A). I will just have the same insurance plans and mobile phone plans and such for ever and ever, because changing them would require asking for offers and negotiating. Gaaah.

An Observation About Family


My lovely, lovely niece is 9 years old. She loves books and animals. She has always taken time to be alone in her room, to read and talk to her toys and to herself, and now write. She is full of compassion for all living beings. She notices how people are feeling and tries to make them happy and comfortable. In the classroom, she is the quiet sort of child who will just observe the wild kids’ antics, slightly mystified. She has a keen sense of justice and will defend anyone who she feels is being wronged in some way – including herself.

Most of my family are worried for her. Oh no, she has such a tough road ahead of her! Oh no, the world will be so cruel! Oh no, she will meet mean people! Oh no! Oh no!

I think she’s bloody perfect and will change her world. #HSPpride
