Hi, I'm Laura. I'm 29, single and just moved to Stockholm from the UK. I spend my days doing UX, marketing and other assorted web stuff. I like cooking, rollercoasters, dinosaurs, and pretty much anything organised nicely into colour order or a good list. I also run 1796 Foods where I am trying to eat all kinds of foods that I must 'try before I die'.

I went on a first date last Sunday for coffee, and it was nice, and I agreed to go on a second date and was happy about that. But since then I’ve gone from being happy about it, to indifferent, to now actively not wanting to go.

Not really sure if I’m just being an idiot and talking myself out of it because of other stressful stuff that’s going on, or if I genuinely don’t want to go.


Cakes have gotten a bad rap. People equate virtue with turning down dessert. There is always one person at the table who holds up her hand when I serve the cake. No, really, I couldn’t she says, and then gives her flat stomach a conspiratorial little pat. Everyone who is pressing a fork into that first tender layer looks at the person who declined the plate, and they all think, That person is better than I am. That person has discipline. But that isn’t a person with discipline; that is a person who has completely lost touch with joy. A slice of cake never made anybody fat. You don’t eat the whole cake. You don’t eat a cake every day of your life. You take the cake when it is offered because the cake is delicious. You have a slice of cake and what it reminds you of is someplace that’s safe, uncomplicated, without stress. A cake is a party, a birthday, a wedding. A cake is what’s served on the happiest days of your life.

I am on board with my new letterless name.

Literally I get one letter per name - U T D

So, I am united I guess?

Just discovered this site which has dozens of character-based workouts. Going to try a different one every day.

I know the answer, but I can’t stop laughing.

You just know they did that on purpose.
