What To Expect From Dating A Surfer

Growing up, I spent almost every weekend on the West Coast in Yzerfontein. I absolutely love the ocean and a great chunk of my childhood was spent either swimming in the deathly cold waters of the West Coast, building sand castles, catching klipvissies or as I grew older - tanning and reading on the beach. I am a summer baby through and through. There is no place I am happier than by the ocean. Imagine my joy when I discovered that the guy I was into surfs and is always keen to take me to the beach...

27 Things About Me

I am turning 27 today, so I have decided to tell you 27 things about me. Some of this I may have told you already - forgive my memory. I am an old woman now. 1. I only started liking avo a month ago I always thought it was just expensive snot. 2. I am an introvert I wrote about being an INFJ a few years ago. Apparently, one's personality can actually change as you mature, and it is possible to go from being an extrovert to being an introvert, and vice versa. I am still 100% an introvert. The only thing that makes me happier than having no plans, is having cancelled plans. 3. I once got a stitch from eating too much pizza My whole...

Being In My Late Twenties

I turn 27 on 11 April. Recently, while I was on holiday in the Cederberg, a boy kept calling me “Tannie”. These days I get more wedding invites than Facebook friend requests. Every now and then I discover a rogue grey hair and I convince myself it is just a very special highlight. I am officially in my late twenties. This is a very interesting period in my life, because I am just as much a giant child as I am a responsible adult. I find my shopping cart filled with veggies and sugar-free products, but also viennas and Rainbow Crunchies. These days I'd rather spend money on Beroccas than Bacardis, and I absolutely detest wasting a day because I drank the...

Living Healthier

I know, I know. This is something you never expected to read on my blog. But hear me out. It's no secret that 2016 took its toll on me in terms of health. Some of it I am not quite ready to write about, and some of it I wrote about openly. By the end of 2016, I knew that I had to make major changes to improve not only my physical health, but also my mental health. My physical health Now let me tell you something about me that you've probably already guessed: I am the least sporty human being you will ever meet. No, really. I'm even worse than that other person you just thought of. In high school I was forced...

Living With Insomnia

I have refrained from writing this article for two months because: A.) I wanted to write about it when I finally had a solution for it. B.) I didn't want to air my dirty laundry. C.) I hate showing weakness. So why am I writing about this now? A.) Because I have realised that there is no easy solution or quick fix for insomnia. B.) I don't really care about airing my dirty laundry anymore, because I have learnt that other people are just tumble-drying theirs. C.) This does not make me weak. 2016 has been a tumultuous year for me for many reasons - all of them health-related. When the time is right, I will write about this as I believe it can help many women out...
