Bun diary, burn…

Reading a crime novel today I came across the part where detective finds victim’s diary. This made me think why people keep diaries in the first place. If you ask Mr Google he will give you millions of reasons to keep a diary or a journal (whatever the name, the essence is the same). The…

Day 26 – 5 Favourite Movies

Day 25 – 8 March – Women’s Day

Dear Diary, Once again, my post about a holiday that I grew up with – International Women’s Day.  The meaning of this day has lost its politics on me and most of my generation long before we were even born. What we were taught from child care all throughout our childhood – it is Mum’s…

Day 24 – What never fails to make me happy

Dear Diary, This is DAY 24 (so to speak) of my writing challenge. And today’s topic – HAPPINESS. We all heard a lot of new-age stuff about ‘don’t sweat small stuff’ or ‘little pleasures’.

Day 23 – My Hobbies

Dear Diary, Today I am sharing my ‘home stuff’. Today I am writing about things that make my life flow, content and cozy. There are a few things that helped me keep my sanity through horrific times in my life. There are things that I do because I want to make my daughter happy (for…

Day 21 – Dream Date

Dear Diary, I was driving my daughter to Russian School this morning and was thinking up a post.

I wanted to write something about how sick and damaged our world is that it takes so much…

Day 20 – What if I had a SUPERPOWER

Dear Diary, I am trying. I really am trying to stay on top of the writing challenge schedule and write a post every day. However, as we all know, ‘life happens to us when we are busy making other plans’. Something always interferes. Today I chose topic for DAY 20. It is all about wishful thinking,…

Day 19 – Things I never thought I will like

Dear Diary, I am exhausted. I am exhausted and super-tired. I do not know if those two things are not mutually contradictory or whatever, but I am all that and much more. I have decided to take a break yesterday. I just did. I had to go to jail))). No, not for anything I have…

Day 17 – 5 things I lust after

  Dear Diary, Today is Monday and I’m having a bad day of ‘mondiatis’. On top of my headache-is-me weekend, it’s a very cold and gloomy day today. Thus, my list for DAY 17 will be all about things I love but can’t have today… Hopefully, my readers can relate 1) COFFEE I’ve been a…

Day 14 – If I could live anywhere

Dear Diary These ‘blog prompt’ lists are driving me insane. Choices, choices and more choices. They (prompts) put so many ideas in my tired brain. They have made me think of things I have never thought of or forgot about. They made me remember stuff. They even made me cry. Today is DAY 14 and…
