Beyonce Huh?

Beyonce

My eyes were first drawn to the black and gold striped scarf upon her head. Her expression was surly, thick upturned lips darkened from years of smoking right down to the butt, pug nose, ashen brown skin and pop eyes frames by harsh square black frames.
Wow! Is this the person with whom I am going to be spending the next two weeks with? The previously joyous atmosphere was smashed in an instant by her icy glare. Uncomfortability permeated the room and my heart sank. The only saving grace was that I would not be sharing a room with her.

Why I Love Salvador Da Bahia, Brazil – Part 3

THE NON-BRAZILIANS I’ve met I luv em too… Natasha, who I thought was a complete NUT upon first meeting, but warmed to in about 5 seconds and made a repeat trip with. Sasha, the British guy who I met through the rogue that rented me the dodgy apartment last time. Despite how we met, he turned out to be alright. Shay and Iya whom I met for the first time in an airport on Christmas day. From leaving the airport in the afternoon distressed and sans luggage to one of the best Christmas nights ever. I must say I have never spent a Christmas Night on a street corner and who could have known it could be so much fun.

Why I Love Salvador Da Bahia, Brazil – Part 2

I love the people… All the random folk I have just bumped into… From born Brazilians to those living there from elsewhere, to those just passing through. I Love all the wonderful people I have met. Marrianna, who has a zest for life and sense of adventure that is rare to find (except she wouldn’t follow me to Piraja) that you rarely see. Her perfect English confused my friend and I. He was convinced she was American. Of course he was wrong.

My Starring Role In A Channel 4 Production

I was at home watching Hollyoaks when Ruth and her friend from work came home. Ruth was screaming out my name. There was urgency in her voice, which was high pitched with excitement. It was as if something great had happened. Anxious to hear whatever it was she was going to say I ran to the top of the stairs to see what all the commotion was about, and she shrieked, “They are filming outside!” I had seen the film crew trucks and cameras outside the café on the corner and we had also had a postcard put through the door the week before, so I was a little dejected that that was the “great” news she had to share.

When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong – The Sensimilla Saga

I took the spliff and took two pulls on it. Almost immediately I felt drowsy and I hate feeling drowsy, unless I’m ready to sleep. Something about watching Chrystal smoke and get high made me just want some. I was bored. It had been so long. I must have forgotten that I don’t even like the high that weed gives. Not long after my two pulls Chrystal’s phone rang. Keep in mind that this was about about 10/11pm. It was one of the guys we had met about a week earlier at a bar. At the time that we had met them there were two of them and two of us so we hung out with them for a couple hours and then exchanged numbers.

Coming Out As Bisexual On An Amsterdam Back Street

Raising The Gay Flag

Gary decides he is coming to Europe with a friend, but he is not coming to London as he had promised. He is going to France and Holland over a two week period. He asks me to come and meet them somewhere. I didn’t have many holiday days left from work and so told him I’d come for the weekend, whilst they are in Holland. The plan is that I am going to leave on the Friday straight from work get a cab to his hotel from the airport in Amsterdam and then leave on Monday morning, early, the same time that they are leaving to go back to Chicago and go straight in to work from Heathrow.

Gay And In Denial

NoahGallery_ 186

A couple of years ago I went to see my friend in Chicago for a few days. I had always had a feeling that he was gay, but there was nothing in particular to indicate this. He would always talk about females, but it was always in reference to their intelligence rather than anything more (not that there is anything wrong with that). So anyway he came with a friend to pick me up from the airport and we went back to his house. When I walked into his house his mama was like, “Oh my baby brought me home a beautiful girl.” She was really welcoming and was gushing over me. The attention was nice, meanwhile my friend just looked embarrassed.

My Delusional Friend Believes That Haters Are Jealous Of Her

Hater Hand

I don’t get people who are constantly talking about people “hating” and being jealous of them. My thing is, so what if people really are jealous of you? How does this affect (wow can believe that until today I didn’t know the difference between affect and effect. I feel so stupid!) your life that you would be driven to constantly talk about it? Even more so when referring to other people who are basically strangers hating on you. People like this worry me because it leads me to believe that they only think that other people are like this because that is exactly the way that they are.

A Schizophrenia Diagnosis Is Not The End Of Life

Mental Illness Awareness

I have another mentally ill friend called Isabel. I met Isabel through another friend when I was 13/14. She was my other friends kind of step sister. Their parents werent married but were living together. So basically we all used to hang out on a Saturday at Trocadero. (That was the spot!) When I first met Isabel she was very quiet and withdrawn in contrast to her very outgoing and brazen step sister she kind of lacked confidence added to that her step sister was mixed and she was dark I think that gave her a complex about her colour as guys would always talk to her sister and never her.
