2017 is over. It went out with the usual bang, signalled by fireworks and excessive drinking, and from its ashes a new year is born. However, something else emerges from the ashes and it comes with such strength it seems unavoidable: New Year clichés. We all know them. This post itself is one of them.… Continue reading Trying to avoid New Year Clichés
My - hasn't like been quiet over on this corner of the internet. To be honest, I feel like not only have I checked out of the internet for the last 7 weeks, but that I have also in someway checked out of myself. For the last month and a half, if you weren't a… Continue reading Half-term, Half-alive.
**WARNING: this post is incredibly self-absorbed, petty, materialistic and generally terrible. But I'd also like to think that it's strangely relatable. If not, I guess that just makes it even worse. You have been warned. ** I'm moving house in a couple of days and that, in itself, is terrifying. I'm about to embark on… Continue reading The Terrifying Presence of my Childhood Bed.
I think, generally, I would regard myself as quite a happy person. Like with everyone, I have low moments, moments where the world gets on top of me and I react either by screaming or crying - or in extreme situations, screaming and crying. But - overall - I think I have a rather positive… Continue reading Ten Happy Things…
My, what a long time since I last wrote a post! Maybe I should consider making that my catchphrase as I utter it so much. I'm not sure I can say that a lot has happened since my last post but let's just say everything has got a little intense. For those of you that… Continue reading When did life have to get so darn confusing?!
My, what a long time since I've posted something. As I know I obviously never ever mention it, I have currently been really busy with University assignments and my dissertation - totally new information to you I know. As a result, recently I have been feeling particularly anxious and fearful for the future, mainly because… Continue reading ❤ Feeling Loved ❤
This weekend, I had a revelation: I, in my entirety, am a happy little home bug. Coming home and being surrounded by my family, and familiar things, and love, and (let's be real) a small menagerie of animals, has made me realise that I, most definitely, cannot be happier than when I am somwhere I… Continue reading Happy Little Home Bug.
I am, and inevitably will forever be, hopelessly nostalgic. Since a young age, I've always tried to attach too much importance to pointless things just so, one day, I might look back and remember some insignificant event that happened on one insignificant day. I love it and I know I won't ever change. Call it… Continue reading January and February 2017.
I feel like this month I have done nothing but write, whether that be writing fun things like new stories or creatives pieces, or the less than fun things like essays and dissertation practice. While, admittedly, some bits have been more boring than others, I have really enjoyed this little kick up the bum and… Continue reading My Writing Essentials…
So 2016 is finally over. Hooray?! Actually, while 2016 was significantly horrible, the year actually had quite a few positives for me: I started writing more; I worked on my mental health; I found some new bookish favourites. But, rather than dwell on the year that has passed, I'm ready to start plowing forward… Continue reading 2017 Resolutions …
