I’m a lipstick addict & I ain’t even ashamed: a short story

I can’t deny it any longer.Hello. I’m Christine, and I’m a lipstick addict.You see, lipstick doesn’t ask questions. Lipstick understands. I kid of course, it’s not that serious … Yet. For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a profound love affair with lipstick. Dating back to my Barbie doll-days, when 8y old me would wear the brightest pink children’s lipstick, to my teenage years when stealing my mother’s lipstick (I confess, I do know where all your lipsticks went mom, and no you didn’t lose them), all the way to my adult life owning about a full MAC...

It’s the birthday countdown

It’s that time of year again. And no, I’m not talking about Christmas. It’s, by the way, a terrible invention that all the Christmas galore starts before the biggest event of the year, being my birthday of course. Someone should put a stop to this.

Or do I). The general hobbies of the above mentioned male population consist mostly out of waiting approximately 9 days, 4 hours and 23 minutes to reply to my absolutely beautifully crafted text messages, postponing and/or rescheduling any dates and waking up one day to suddenly decide to drop off of the face of the earth, only to resurface exactly one month later —...

Fuck

There is always a tremendous longing in my heart to be lost. And lost I am when I realized just before that I haven't posted any pictures of my *magical birthday. The chaos queen in me is strong these days and I feel she's taking over control (ground control to Major Christine — take your protein pills and put your helmet on).What a chaos year it's been indeed. Now, I don't want to get all sappy or mushy over moments long passed and write a 10-page essay as a full reflection on my life this year with its ups &...
