I have said before that I am currently out of work and I am applying for jobs.  Today I came across an advert for well paying job that seems right up my ally so I have submitted my application for this position.  But the one thing that struck me about the job advert was that […]

Watching over each other

I know that you are here, watching what I do, It’s always hard missing someone you care for, We go through life looking for connections When we find the connection that’s right for us, We hold on for dear life until it radiates for all to see, I never thought that this could ever happen […]

First Films 

This is something I’ve been thinking about posting for a few days now.  I was watching a video on YouTube that asked this very same question and I thought it would make for a fun discussion on here if anyone is interested in taking part in it.  I have tried things like this before without […]

Interesting day

It has been another busy day today. It was a good day as well as one of interesting situations that I need to think about. First off, we, the wife and I, took the little one out for the day. We decided that we would go shopping since I got my last pay from my […]

Heartwarming and hilarious 

Now the title of this are two words that don’t normally go together that often  But I just seen this video on YouTube and I had to share it.  On this day of tragedy I think we can all use a laugh and that warm fuzzy feeling. So enjoy.  *be warned, strong language and adult […]

We Saved Each Other

When I met you I was adrift, I was lost in a sea of despair, Floating around with no direction or place to go, You came along and pulled me to shore, Your love made me feel like I never have before, I drifted for years not knowing where to go. I loved you from […]

It’s a weird place. Pt 2

A couple of weeks ago I made a post saying that Australia is a weird place where everything is trying to kill you, and that the country itself looks like a cat and a dogs head smashed together.  Here is that picture again  I maintain what I said before but tonight I have seen this picture and […]

Daily Prompt: Notorious

Notorious is an interesting way to describe someone.  At what point does someone become?  I genuinely don’t know that answer to this. When I think of notorious people the first thing that springs to mind, other than the Notorious B. I. G, is serial killers.  Its a weird thing to think that in my mind notorious […]

Stuck in the same place. 

I have been dealing with something for a long time. There are certain things from my past that I can’t get over and I obsess about them a lot. These are things that are really deeply personal to me so I won’t go into detail about them. But suffice to say I was offered a […]

Social Media expansion

last night I put up a post saying that I have set up a twitter account in order to promote my blog. the name for that is @ColTrysToWrite. I thought that this would be a good way to do a bit of self-promotion and on the advice of a good friend of mine I set […]

Twitter account 

Hello there everybody,  Tonight I have taken the plunge into the big bad world of Twitter.  I don’t really know how to work it. I had an account before that I haven’t looked at for many many years and frankly I never really used it.  My new twitter handle, if that’s the right term, is […]

Twisting and Turning

Life is one giant maze, We start at the beginning and head to the centre, Living life through the haze, Twisting passed the obstacles that are set in our path, It’s a Labyrinth and when you think you have the hang of it, It changes the way you think and sometimes it will make you […]

Well that’s game over

Well the inevitable has happened, the shut down at work is over, and I have been given my weeks notice. As of next Thursday, unless it gets extended, I will be unemployed again. It’s a shame, but it is not entirely unexpected. I have prepared for it and have enough money saved to cover for […]

Fighting For The Light (Poem)

We fight all our lives to keep on going, Trying to rise up against the emptiness inside, There are times we don’t know if it is worth doing, But the demons are rising battling against the tide, Sometimes it feels we are fighting the tide. They are sneaky little ratbags, Hitting us when we are […]

I let you in (poem)

I let you in when I couldn’t let myself in, You saw something in me that wanted to get out, My life was trash and headed for the bin, You did something that I wasn’t expecting, You grabbed the wound covering my heart Ripped it open and exposed my soul. You exposed my heart. Looking […]

I have been through a lot in my life. I’ve talked about this on here before but I thought I’d say again to give anyone who may read this who is in a similar situation that there is hope.  A few years ago I was in very bad way, I hated my life and felt […]

Where to go next?

I might be on the cusp of getting my first book published and it has got me thinking about a sequel. When I finished the first novel I did start a follow up to it but I have changed it so much since then that it no longer fits with the original story. So I […]

It’s a very special day of the year.  It’s the international holiday that is incredibly important to most people.  It’s Star Wars Day.  I have had a bad day at work, not feeling well had an allergic reaction to some perfume someone at work was wearing, my mother of all people, so it’s been a […]


Dreams are Weird!

Last night was a strange night I had the weirdest dream. I have had some weird dreams in my life before now, some of which were truly bizarre, like the time I had a dream that I was one of the Ninja Turtles, that was actually kind of awesome. I have also had somewhere I […]
