5 Reasons why I am a leopard

By now you all probably know that I am obsessed with leopard print. If you didn’t know this about me, here’s a photo I took of all my leopard print clothes last year. (I now have even more.) I have a theory that my leopard print obsession is actually turning me into a leopard. I created this list to show you why. Reasons why I am possibly a leopard: 1.)    I don’t like being touched Let me tell you one really important thing about me: I do not like being touched. I am convinced that something went wrong with my female settings, because I am really the most unaffectionate girl in the world. If you are not part of my family or friendship group, DON’T...

My first (awkward) week at my new job.

I am a firm believer in sharing my life's embarrassment with you, I decided to write about my first week at the new company. Enjoy. Day 1: The introduction. This whole day can be summarised in one (made up) word: DERP On my first day my new manager took me around the office to introduce me to everyone, which resulted in a lot of fake laughing and awkward sweaty handshakes. I probably said, “Nice to meet you!” about a thousand times that day. With the exception of the one time I said, “HICE to meet you.” Day 2: The fridge. My desk is right next to the office fridge, which is usually amazing because it would mean that I don’t have to walk far to stuff my...

My life in GIFs

[dropcap1]I[/dropcap1] don’t always have the words to say how I feel, so I decided to let the GIFs do the talking. When I get retweeted on Twitter or when someone likes one of my posts on Facebook.     When it dawns on me that I might have accidentally sent a bitchy sms to the person that I was bitching about.     When a guy can't stop talking about himself.   What happens every single time I try to show off. When I'm in the presence of someone who's a total suck up.  Me in every meeting ever. When someone who thinks that he/she is hilarious makes a joke in my presence. How I think friendship is supposed to work. How I act when I'm at home. When I have to get up on Mondays. When I'm...

Anja visits Adult World for the first and the last time.

In my first year at Red & Yellow, we were given a brief to go someplace out of our comfort zone and write about it. I decided to go to Adult World in Paarl, and this is what I wrote: (Our lecturer had to read this) I’m not even going to deny that I’ve always looked for an excuse to go into Adult World. Then, yesterday, we got a new assignment that gave me the golden opportunity to enter the Narnia door of porn. The assignment was for us to go to a place we’ve never been to, preferably out of our comfort zone, and observe everyone and everything there. At first I thought of going to a few lectures with my...
