A Start to Uni... Part 2

...I wasn’t exactly in the mood for the nightmare inducing awkwardness of ‘getting to know you’ activities one is sure to experience at orientations/conferences/camps/ any event where people over 40 are put in charge of young people and have to come up with FUN things to fill time (a.k.a university orientation). And awkwardness was exactly what I got...

No friendships were cultivated through participation in said activities. The only time a genuine conversation was had was when we found a spare moment to bitch about our mentors. I might have also been guilty of oversharing… I think I told no less than five complete strangers about my recent dumping. Cringe worthy, I know. I mean what better way to make friends than by basically admitting you’re emotionally screwed at the moment.

6 Responses For When Life Gives You Lemons...

Okay, so life isn't always smooth sailing. Sometimes it's more sour than sweet. So when life gives you lemons, you obviously have a shot of some sort of strong alcohol. And then take another. And another. Repeat until no more lemons can be seen.

Or you could just view the best lemons-and-life quotes. Your choice.

A Start To Uni... Part One

This is Melissa's first post. Yay! But for some technical difficulties she cannot post it from her account, so for now we will post it from me.
I was so keen on my first day of prep that I woke up at 6am and had to watch some exercise show for an hour with creepy old chicks doing squats in yoga pants.
On my first day of high school I remember practically prancing to class, two calico bags full of copious amounts of stationary in either hand, thinned-out front fringe in disarray and oversized blazer flowing in the wind. I was (still am) the poster girl of teenage awkwardness.  Those were the days.

So, um, let’s just say that my first day of uni was not met by the same amount of enthusiasm on my part. I didn’t have the best start to my tertiary education. I didn’t really have the greatest start to 2014 actually.

3 Of The Best DIY Clutches

I realise that I may have a mild obsession with bags.
It's an obsession I can live with, but every now and then it will flare up in reaction to a new trend or just-plain-awesome style. Bag-obsession; it's a real condition.

So this time around I blame Emily Cocklin's dreamy collection of clutches for this round of bag fever. Seriously, do not check out the rest of her blog unless you want to undergo major wardrobe envy. But then again, it can be major inspiration so it's definitely worth the jealousy ;)

And what is better then a simply magically clutch collection? Is when you can DIY your own creations of course! These are three of the best DIY clutch jobs ever. Seriously, these aren't on my 'oh, I should make that' list; these DIYs are on my 'I MUST MAKE. RIGHT NOW.' list

Have you noticed?

Have you noticed the addition of an extra blogging author?

Don't worry, it's okay if you haven't. Just a heads up that there will be double the blogging fun now since now Missing Instinct has gone from a singular 'I' to 'we'. Niiice.
