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...

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
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. He is no longer simply running around offending people (which was bad enough already), he … Continue reading ‘Whatever happened to the values of humanity?’
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

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

I'm in the middle of a few posts that I'll be uploading shortly but this is just a short (shameless) self-promotion...please continue. Recently I contributed a story to The Mighty (a fantastic site that shares real stories of … Continue reading When I Overheard a Stranger Say ‘Let’s Pretend I’m Disabled’

If you've managed to read any of my last posts you'll know I've not been very dedicated to this blog! My last post was about a month ago and it … Continue reading Life Update-Hello!
So I've somehow already managed to fail with this project considering today is actually day 3 and I didn't write a post yesterday! But oh well, it's not meant to be complicated or stressful, so it doesn't matter. I figure I'll just write yesterday's post today. Self Care yesterday looked like taking a nap in the middle … Continue reading Self Care Day 2
