The Blog of Frog

For those of you who don’t follow me on Instagram, you might not be aware of the famous Frog (my German Shepherd and best bud!). Frog’s real name is Frodo, and he still gets called that when he is in trouble (which you will realise reading these posts, is often), but since he was a puppy his dad and I […]

Why I Ride

*Written by Steve* “Why do you ride?” is a question most cyclists have been asked on many occasions, and it’s easy to respond with the clichés like fitness, weight loss, or #outsideisfree. My answer has changed over the years from utilitarian purposes, to social outlets, and everything in between. I’m getting ahead of myself, let’s rewind to 2012. I was […]

The little changes I’ve made that have increased my happiness.

I have always been a believer in appreciating the small things this wonderful world has to offer, and since everything that happened last year I have started to take time to reflect, a lot and often. Lately one of the things I have reflected on is that I have made some really small changes that have really helped increase my happiness (if only slightly some days). So this is my little list: Showering at night– Having a shower when I get home from work is one of the best stress releases. Not watching the news– I very rarely watch the news now. I was finding it really draining, and since doing research on the media, I was also finding it frustrating. I get the news I need to through my phone, I don’t need to watch it before and/or after work. Dancing while cooking- Instead of watching TV while I cook, I listen to music and dance around. Take Frog for a walk– As Frog’s training is paying off, I am now able to easily take him for a walk, so I do that most days when I get home (unless I work late). My Nespresso machine- I finally purchased a Nespresso machine, and I must say it has changed my mornings. Waking up and getting to have a delicious coffee in my own home is the best way to entice me out of bed.

2 Years of Dr.ofwhat!

Dr.ofwhat is officially two years old, which is actually really hard to believe as it feels like the longest and quickest two years of my life simultaneously. I was so nervous to start a blog. I always knew that I wanted to because I really enjoyed writing and loved reading other peoples blogs. But I was terrified, and I didn’t […]

Yes, its easy to do nothing.

*Written by Tegan* Yes, its easy to do nothing. Yes it would have been easier not to write this. Yes it would have been easier not to expose myself. Yes it would have been easier to not to deal with the comments other people may throw at me. BUT BORINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG. If I didn’t write this the endless cycle just continues. […]

A little quiet in the blogosphere.

You may have noticed that I have been a little quiet on the blog front lately (or you might not have…. I’m sure most of you are not that invested!). There is not really any specific reason for it other than the fact that life is getting in the way, and blog inspiration has been lacking a little lately. Reaching […]
