what YouTube beauty channels don’t tell you

I’ve really been enjoying YouTube at the moment. In particular, beauty tutorials. Have never really been the makeup type. In the past I may have tipped my hat at makeup every now and then with some mascara and maybe, just maybe, eyeliner. I remember when I left home to live in the ‘big city’ and … Continue reading what YouTube beauty channels don’t tell you

KOOL-AID: my days…

The next instalment of Kool-aid. To check out the rest of the story, click on the 'Koolaid' menu above.   Right. I admit it. I miss having a purpose. Am quite annoyed at self for admitting this.

KOOL-AID: lack of communication

And now, the next instalment of Kool-Aid! To see the story from the beginning, hit the 'Koolaid' menu above. Verbal communication has never been my strong point.

So you have something to … Continue reading KOOL-AID: lack of communication

mental health interruption

So I had a plan. I was going to pick a poem from those you have graciously sent to me and read it on a video. I wanted to celebrate my fellow poets. I wanted to give them a voice. But my mental health got in the way. The wax and wane of mental health … Continue reading mental health interruption

KOOL-AID: seriously. do you not get the Kool-aid reference?

Really did think the whole “drinking the Kool-Aid” idiom was one everyone would get. Maybe you’re all too young. Maybe there aren’t enough Americans reading this. (For the record, I am not American. Not that there’s anything wrong with that). Right. So. A brief history lesson on cult-leader nutters for you. Okay. So there was … Continue reading KOOL-AID: seriously. do you not get the Kool-aid reference?

KOOL-AID: signs you may be in a cult

Signs plural? No; in my experience, there’s just one sign: You’re not allowed to use the internet. Sounds mad, no? But true. And possible, even in today’s society. In my “church” internet use was frowned upon. Easy for those of us living on base — we simply were not given facilities to access the internet. … Continue reading KOOL-AID: signs you may be in a cult

For the last few months I have been writing a blog called Almost Drank the Koolaid, which I will now be featuring here on giorgethomas.com starting tomorrow. But I have a bit of explaining to do. So check … Continue reading Welcome to Koolaid
