My last blog post was almost four months ago, and for the past few weeks it's been making me more and more anxious thinking about what to write for my next post, when to post it, if it's even worth continuing because I'd left it too long. It had become this tight knot in my … Continue reading New Year, New Me…kind of
My experience at Hollyshorts 2017...
I'm writing this post as I know those of you in Sixth Form or College are going through your final exams before you leave school forever and embark on your journey into the real world. Whether that means you'll be taking a gap year, starting Uni soon or going straight into the world of careers, I hope these tips can help … Continue reading 5 Tips For School Leavers
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, so I have decided to reblog a post I wrote about a year ago about how I deal with panic attacks. I wrote this when I was in an extremely difficult point mentally, and it was very difficult to write, and is still very difficult to share. But I think it’s important to share posts like these to raise awareness and ultimately break the stigma attached to mental illness.
TW: Panic attacks and anxiety
This post is going to be quite personal to me, and to be honest, quite difficult to write. But it’s not something that people talk about, as it can be very scary and at times very embarrassing (although it shouldn’t be). But I think it’s something that should be talked about.

They can also happen at any time of the day and for any reason. There is no one form of panic attack, and every type can be terrifying for both the sufferer and the people around them at the time.

What is it about us that defines who we are?
I didn't want to write another post about Donald Trump, especially since my last post was all about him. I feel like any moment spent on him is a moment too long, but this is about more than just him now.

With that same logic I’d also like to point out that I don’t usually like to write about politics because … Continue reading My take on ‘President’ Trump
Hello again! So, I hadn't planned on writing a blog post today, but considering it is World Mental Health Day, with the theme of Psychological First Aid, I couldn't not talk about it. Particularly as the reason I started this blog in the first place is because I want to help break the stigma associated … Continue reading World Mental Health Day
Hello! It's been a while again! The past few weeks have been a blur, I started at a new University and have been getting to grips with all the new people, classes, places. It has been great, but extremely overwhelming in a multitude of ways. Everything seems new and familiar at the same time. When … Continue reading University: Take 2
A year ago today I had just moved into my new flat ready to start my first year at University. I did the whole 'Fresher's week' thing and to tell you the truth I was petrified. The good news is...I survived! And the other good news is that since I no longer attend that University, … Continue reading To The Freshers Who Don’t Drink
