Chronicles of an Over-Sharer

There’s a reasonable amount of over sharing that comes with a blog. The fact that you have one in the first place suggests that you’re not the type of person to hide the inner workings of your private world. And for lots of people who consider themselves¬†writers, they kind of fall into that ‘melancholic’ personality type that is kind of introspective and emotional. Or maybe not. But whatever. Anyway, as a blogger/writer/internet over-sharer, I’ve always been more...

Playing Favourites. Twitter, Facebook and Saying Mmm #IBOT

Sometimes, here on Essentially Jess, I like to write deep and meaningful posts that will hopefully inspire people to a higher level of greatness in their lives. I probably fail dismally at it, and I’m being about 75% facetious in writing that, but at least I have a goal. This, however, is not one of those posts. I’ve noticed something recently, and I’ve been thinking about it a little bit. It’s a very deep, philosophical question that has had me almost questioning the...

I Love Flat Packs

Yes it’s true. I am one of those weird people, who just loves flat pack furniture. And not just because it means I actually have new furniture, but also because I actually enjoy putting it together. Yes, I’m weird like that. Anyway, a few weeks ago we headed to Adelaide to pick up our other car, and hopefully get a few bits and pieces from IKEA, which was, we thought, a great plan. The only thing we had failed to really think through, was the size of some of those items we were...

It’s All About The Wave #IBOT

Back when I was a little girl, we used to drive to Adelaide every other year to see my step-dad’s family for Christmas. I distinctly remember one day, looking up from my book in the backseat to see him waving at an oncoming car. “Why are you waving?” I asked. I don’t remember the exact answer but it was something along the lines of ‘because that’s what you do when you’re on a long car drive,’ and so that was that. Forever it has been in my mind...

Stealth Blogging and Driving in the Wrong Lane

Shhh… Don’t tell anyone, but I really shouldn’t be blogging. I’ve got a hundred and one other things to do (including finishing catching up on IBOT), but lots of people said they wanted to hear how we are going in our new house, and really, who am I to not oblige? ¬†;) So how are things going? Basically like this. I’m sitting on a camping chair and there are still boxes everywhere. As part of our moving process, we got rid of all our junk planning to get new stuff...
