Remain Insane

Ramblings of an animal loving, people hating, game enthusing, book nerd :D

The Return of the Ranter February 10, 2014

Kinda like ‘The Return of the King’ (being the third time I have been gone for months and then returned) but with little less LOTR epicness and a little more of this juvenile crap:


Remain Insane has had a facelift and a revamp, so to my old and new lovely followers, let me re-acquaint myself with you:

About the Blogger:

Gemma likes to think of herself as a witty closet journalist, so decided she would share this with the world and create a blog. The plan was to wow viewers with her well researched and thought out posts, however after recent review it has been found that actually, Gemma just spew’s forth a whole load of verbal diarrhoea along with gifs and cat memes in an attempt to provide ‘LOLZ’. She entertained the idea of perhaps changing her blog content to something a little more sophisticated, but then got distracted by a video of dog dancing to ‘Shake That’, and hence has continued to fill her blog with her raving. And cats. She will occasionally talk about something serious here and there, but will mostly crap on like a lunatic.

Gemma amazingly managed to drag herself through 4 years of uni in an Animal Behaviour degree, and is now waiting on her official piece of paper so she can start regularly using the phrase ‘Trust me, I’m a scientist’. At 16, she managed to snag the best ‘first job’ ever and started working in an Aussie wildlife park, cuddling koalas, wrestling crocodiles and taming snakes, which she thought was pretty awesome. From this, she decided she would like to spend her life working towards animal care and conservation. She currently volunteers at a zoo making animal toys, and talks about her most favourite and loved animal; orangutans, every chance she gets. It must also be noted that Gemma has realised that she hates people, a lot. She likes to claim she isn’t antisocial, she just thinks people are stupid. Being an old fashioned nancy, one of Gemma’s favourite things is to rant about people who she secretly suspects to have an IQ of single digits.

– Additional useless details –

Video games and books are the best. Gemma has a cat called Jasper who acts like a dog. All things nerdy are absolutely wonderful. Big Bang Theory and Scrubs is the shit, full stop no returns. If you don’t think the Lion King is THE BEST DISNEY MOVIE EVER, don’t discuss this with Gemma, as she will become unnecessarily aggravated and violent. Gemma also apparently likes to talk about herself in third person.

After spending the past 6 months having to write 3000 word essays galore, I was unsure if I would ever log back in to WordPress. After whinging and whining about having to write so much for Uni, I have been 110% unmotivated to spend my spare time at the computer doing more typing, so accepted that my blog may lie dormant forevermore. But no sooner than my last assignment left my hands, my urge to blog came back. And hence, here I am, ready to fill your feeds with ranting and rambling again 😀

Just thought I’d give you all a heads up 😉


A month too long! August 22, 2012

After quite a long hiatus on my part, I thought I better quickly drop by to let all of my lovely subscribers know that I have not jumped ship and abandoned my blogging baby, she just needs a little dusting off again that’s all!

Torturous weeks of uni, 5 essays, moving house, useless real estate agents, useless builders, useless councils, useless internet providers, unpacking, hundreds of phone calls to all useless people listed above, 4 started and then discarded blog posts and running around making sure the cat doesn’t destroy our brand new house. These are the things I blame for my absence. Especially the essays, all scientific writing and no creativity makes Gemma a dull woman! 😛

I soon plan to break out of this weird ‘Let’s be a good uni student’ stage, blow off all of my homework again and get back to ranting as per usual. I only have to hope I haven’t offended my wonderful viewers with my lack of posting, and if I have, I am willing to resort to begging if I must 😛

Please take me back? Pretty pretty please?
