    19 for 2019

    There are few things I stick to for more than 6 seconds when it comes to writing, but the January 1st post is my rock. I can state with confidence that i did not complete a single one of the things on last years list, largely because I didn’t look at or think about it since I wrote it.

    Emigration II

    Are you there internet? It’s me, Clodagh. I’ve been awful quiet for a very long time on here, but this past 18 months have been weird and I’ve had no idea how to articulate what’s in my head.  I tend…

    Three posts in one year? Slow the fuck down. It is August 2017 and despite only working about 30hrs a week (and only 10 months of the year) I have been greatly neglecting what I see as my best bet…

    Resolutions Revisited

    Notice how it’s always right after I say posting will go back to being “regular” that I disappear for months? This time last year, I made a list of not-really-resolutions, it has come time to evaluate my success rate and…

    Thesis Wrap

    … Hi … It actually hasn’t been as long as I thought, I mean it’s been two months, but it feels like much longer than that. Since it’s now all over and done with, I’m going to skip the Phase/Part…

    Mood Swings Abound

    Life choices I made this week include deleting the LinkedIn app to make room for Pokémon Go and opting to order enough fabric to clothe several elephants. Naturally you assume someone who so clearly has it together would be above things…
