I Waited Until My Wedding Night To Lose My Virginity And I Wish I Hadn’t

Thought Catalog

“Believing that true love waits, I make a commitment to God, myself, my family, my friends, my future mate and my future children to be sexually abstinent from this day until the day I enter a biblical marriage relationship. As well as abstaining from sexual thoughts, sexual touching, pornography, and actions that are known to lead to sexual arousal.”

At the age of 10, I took a pledge at my church alongside a group of other girls to remain a virgin until marriage. Yes, you read that right — I was 10 years old.

Let’s take a look at who I was as a 10-year-old: I was in fourth grade. I played with Barbie dolls and had tea parties with imaginary friends. I pretended I was a mermaid every time I took a bath. I still thought boys were icky and I had no idea I liked girls, too. I…

Awesome reason to STILL have children

Okay, so it came to my attention that 21st century men and women would rather have pets (I.e dogs and cats) as opposed to having children. Why????
Come on people, there are a million and one reasons to still get knocked up and pop out some minions. Everything from being more likely to get a seat on the tube/train to having your own personal dishwasher that doesn’t use up electricity. I mean in China being pregnant gives you wifi (see picture below). You could even have your own hand-free for your mobile phone while you kick back to watch the movie he:she has tuned in for you!!! Throwing up and eating huge meals would be totally acceptable. And the much needed afternoon nap would be welcomed and even encouraged.
So why aren’t people planning to have babies

Fancy lunch cheat sheet

Okay. I know we have all been there ; you are craving a really good lunch – dim sum, chinese, Italian, French and the list goes on BUT you are either too broke or chained to your desk to indulge in the ultimate lunch. So here are some of the ways I cheat at a fancy meal

Pre-plan EVERYTHING
I cannot stress how much this simple trick makes eating lunch so much more stress-free for me. It means I can have my lunch ready in 5-10 mins (at work ) and enjoy the rest of the hour eating or reading a good book.
So look into your fridge and think of what you may fancy having for the week on Sunday. Prepare one or more type of salad (my faves bases are couscous and spicy cucumber) and portion these in little pots. Then make use of all that left over Sunday roast, potatoes and veg. You can make a variety of things from pulled pork to veg and potato cakes.
You can also make your pancake mix ahead and even fry then (they are better thin, crepe sizes) and pop them in the fridge as well. Wraps works just as well.
But tiny jars for condiments and sauces. Baguettes, crackers (or bread biscuits) as they work well as basis of a good snack.
Portion any other bits you like. Fruits, chicken, pudding – yes you can even enjoy a. Sticky toffee pudding at work.

Suggested recipes to follow over the next few days with a new lunch recipe bring published every Tuesday

Lazy days and more

I hope I am not the only one that stays home (sometimes for a few days) simply because I don’t want to get dressed. The effort of getting dressed to go out is so over-rated! I would rather take a nice lavender scented bath before changing into a short loose dress – all before costing up alone in front of my tv watching Bridget Jones and the like portraying some aspects of my life via film. I can only think of two phenomena to explain this
A – I am totally anti-social butterfly who does not relish the thought of mingling with the outside world. Even more sad is the fact that it has nothing to do with living in an expensive city where I can barely afford to enjoy (YET) because I stayed in a lot when I lived in a small city (more like a village). On the other hand, I have had plenty a time to practice cooking gourmet meals (like the mussel with chilli and lime I plan on having for dinner tonight), plenty of time to assess my life decisions (whether I really need or want a boyfriend) and even read tons of books without my flat overflowing – thank you iBooks!!!
B – I am a lazy sod who is too cynical to exercise therefore I stay indoors and watch crime thrillers and romcoms as opposed to bring happy and excitable like everyone perceives me.

Either ways I foresee many lazy days ahead (after I read for and finish writing my exams and before my internship starts – provided my contract shows up sometime soon).

Enjoy your bank holiday weekend and expect a recipe tomorrow

Spring is here

So I’ve been looking forward to spring for awhile now. But now it is here I just wanna stay in doors and drink cups of tea. To be fair I can be quite lazy 🙈.
Anyways, since spring I’ve decided to start working out. hurrah. Yes! MJ is working out. If you know me you’d know this is a big step. I do like working out – I love going to the gym but since I’ve moved to london it’s a bit hard because I love going to the gym with other people ( mostly cuz I LOVE talking )so I haven’t been going to the gym and I am going fat😱😱.
Being cheap, I have decided to opt for YouTube videos plus a few dietary changes. I’m going to do this 30 days… yes!!! 30 days
I will be posting progress pictures here to prevent me from cheating.

wish me luck!
