Too bloody blonde

I like to think that I am pretty clever. I mean, I find my way around new situations quite easily, changed my field of profession without problems and even taught myself some new skills like basic coding and (even more basic) photography.     There are some days though when I feel as if this fridge magnet perfectly describes me:     Trying to find a solution for annoyances in daily life, building complicated ways around something while completely ignoring the obvious and easy way any sane person would take.

Recent Reads – “Skinny Bitch” by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin

If you are unfamiliar with the “Recent Reads” series, click here for an explanation. Short story even shorter: I tell you about books I have recently read (came as quite a surprise, regarding the title, hm?)
