Diary of an Author

An update on where the book is up to and an overview of what I am doing if I am not writing/working! 

Corina vs Corona: All by myself

Corina vs Corona: All by myself

I’ve pretty much been indoors for a couple of weeks now. I’ve not gone as insane as I initially thought, however, my skin now really is reflecting the sun.

Corina vs Corona: Now we’re all in detention

Corina vs Corona: Now we’re all in detention

So the naughty kids at the back got us all locked in detention. While some of us were continuing our normal lives but just a little more virtually, there were the naughty few filling parks, panic buying and licking bags of pasta in supermarkets.

I am currently typing this with a face mask, alcohol gel soaked hands, and ensuring that when I cough it is most definitely into my elbow – so despite the title this blog is most definitely COVID-19 free.

When you are blaming you are refusing to learn from your fear and anger. When you feel yourself starting to blame someone for something you have to work out why and be accountable or hold the other person accountable.

Hello, my name is Corina, and I am a Highly Sensitive Person

Hello, my name is Corina, and I am a Highly Sensitive Person

I am incredibly proud of myself right now. I literally just demolished 12 fried chicken wings. I don’t think I took a breath. It is the best achievement of my day, and I may have to call it now, but it might also be my best achievement of 2020 so far. I mean, I can already feel the sensation of being so full I may vomit, but I am still loving myself sick right now.

It was while feeling this tremendous life achievement that I thought it was the perfect time to write about something I have recently discovered. Now this could be viewed as a negative trait, but I now call it my super power (and it cost me at least £100 in therapy to see it as such). You see recently I discovered that I am HSP or a highly sensitive person. It is something 15-20% of the population is categorised as and actually means we are very highly evolved in the area of survival.

I’ve been grappling with life like a sloth thrown into a UFC ring with some ambrosia custard for protection. It’s been messy, a little lumpy, slow, painful and I was never going to win.

The soundtrack of life

Music: the most essential life ingredient. I don’t think it’s any coincidence that some of the biggest selling hits are usually linked to a movie, because we love linking music to moments.
