Predictably Unpredictable passionate about art, design, photography  and everything under the sun insomniac gypsy who is marching to the beat of her own drum…

She cannot stand injustice and judgmental prejudiced people but loves gardening…

hiking…

taking long walks…

and stormy weather.

This girl doesn’t like crowd, bling-bling, noises- rules -make up- stilettos and roses especially red because they are so common. Give her prairie/wild flowers instead___

For those who are curious how the name of my blog and tag line came to being, and why I am here blogging publicly instead of keeping a private journal… you can read the explanation here and here.

Oh, before I forget, I only write true-to-life stories. If you find yourself having trouble believing some of it; remember, reality is stranger than fiction…

      You have your whole life ahead of you. Enjoy, we can only be young once.

    1. I will check out your place in a minute.

      i am fairly new to blogging as well. just 2 months and a half to be exact. i didn’t know before that they are giving multiple courses about blogging nor they have handy zero to hero guide. so, i practically created my blog on my own following whatever comes when i click.

      thanks for dropping by and i guess see you around? have a nice day!

      1. Yes, this is exactly what happened to me. I started my blog for myself, and then discovered these great courses. You get better by just blogging, but the courses help you get there quicker and with the support of others.

    1. Ha, ha ha! Awesome! Your comment reminds me of something I have said to someone yesterday about being careful not to shame myself more than usual, letting the skeletons out the closet and giving them the freedom to dance… naked.

      I’m glad you can join us and it’s always a pleasure to hear that with my nonsensical ramblings I managed somehow to connect with (the right) people.

    1. Aside from giving me a hard time on pingbacks, seems DP is doing the same with my comments which always landed on spam folder these days. Anyway, thank you for always including me with your adventures. Appreciate it so much. Though sometimes I can’t conform with the rules due to some technicality like overall look of blog page, time, not keen on badges (that’s why I never accept any blog awards) it doesn’t mean I don’t like being part of it even as an onlooker. You’re a good person Justine. Keep it that way.

  5. In fact, in daily post comment section many a times we met & exchange our ideas and opinions ;so according to me no formal introduction needed.
    Today, once again commenting on your comment about blogging U; I realized that our exchanges of ideas will increase over the time; so, today, I specifically visited your blog;
    MY FIRST HAND REPORT ABOUT YOUR BLOG;
    It is a rare combination of hard work, plain pleasure & hobby.
    From your post it seems,initially writing might have been your hobby but now you have reach up to the stage where it became plain pleasure; a effortless process.
    From your each image it is clearly visible that how much efforts, planning, certain objectives you put it as a hard work.

    1. I write from the heart and always will be. I’m perfectionist and an OCD I don’t do half-a$$ job (pardon the french) no amount of success can change that so, complacency will never be an issue as far as I’m concerned. You don’t need to worry about that. Paranoid is my middle name among so many other things I hope it will guide me to the right path.

      Thank you for being here and for sharing with us your thoughts. Take care.

  6. Your About page is a great introduction. Robert Frost is my favorite poet, so you had me as soon as I saw his poem in your sidebar. That is one of my three favorite poems. I look forward to reading your blog. I don’t write fiction on my blog either. Nice to meet you 🙂

    Like

    1. I wonder about your remark Robin. I wonder why you love Frost’s poem which is described as the “best-known, most-often-misunderstood poem on the planet”. I find it a rather uncomfortable poem, frankly, but we all have our preferences and I am sure you have good reasons for loving it so much. I am probably just a grumpy old man. Take care and happy Easter.

      1. Long time since I have taken time to check my WordPress. One reason I love Frost is his straight forward content and The Road Not Taken poem is no different. Its meaning is plain. It might be a little uncomfortable, but such is life, and that is something Frost seems to capture in an efficient use of words that paint scenes the reader can step into (just my opinion). I also like its rhyme and meter. Thanks for the Easter greeting. Cheers!

      2. I don’t think Frost it’s speaking about the duplicity of people toward one another, but possibly how we deceive ourselves. In the poem, faced with equal choices, the person makes a choice, knowing he will tell himself something different about his choice one day – the stories we tell ourselves to make us feel better about our choices. I hope you enjoy the day!

  7. I enjoyed your about page. It was very nicely done. I need to give better thought to mine. I think i was too hasty. i really liked the picture of you in the chair with the book, peeking around the edge. I like pictures that tell a story, not just the stand and smile shot so many people do. But I’m not a photographer. I’d like to be but i think i will have to keep that for my next life.

    I have a blog I started a little over a year ago called’ My Name is Jamie. Life in Prison’. http://mynameisjamie.net. It was hosted at a site – blog.com – an awful place. The lights were on but the management had gone fishing. There was NO community, and absolutely no way to get help. After months of incredible frustration I moved it to wordpress. Since I didn’t know anything about the power of a community I didn’t participate. Now things are changing and I’m taking the 101 course to learn the finer points I didn’t pick up on. My first blog is very focused in it’s theme and I can’t share the posts of other people on it or write about things off topic.

    so…I have a brand new blog, started the day after Christmas to do just that. Watch and Whirl http://watchandwhirl.wordpress.com. I’m having fun reblogging great posts. I will be back to read more of yours since you have gotten such great feedback here!

    1. Hi, Jamie 🙂 Nice of you to drop by and leave a substantial comment. Appreciate that. I went to your space to check and skim through posts. Seem we are both into soul searching and retrospection and things like that. Great feedback comes from hard work and being true to yourself. It will not come in one day but gradually you will find yourself there. You’re on the right track. Goodluck!

I like what you’ve done with the place (translated: you’ve used the 2014 theme very well), seems like you’re busy (translated: you keep busy). One question. Where’s that tea you mentioned? Nice work on the blog. Regards, eLFy.
