I haven’t written anything in my blog for months, partly through a lack of inspiration, partly through being incredible busy, and partly just down to who I am as a person. More recently I’ve had plenty of inspiration and time to write but I’ve still been putting it off, finding other things to do instead. … More Procrastination and Perfectionism
Do you ever feel like your own personality is stuck in a state of flux? Like you’re not sure exactly who you are? Like who you thought you were feels like it no longer exists? Because that’s how I feel right about now. I feel like who I am, who I was, who I thought … More Metamorphosis
Last year I got very very good at writing my blog every single week, though admittedly it did tail off towards the end of the year. This year, finding the time and motivation to actually sit down and write my blog has become much much harder. Take this week for example, I’m a day late … More This Was So Much Easier When I Was Lonely
This year has felt long, it’s felt like the longest year I’ve ever lived. In fact I’ve taken to joking that it’s the never ending year. Obviously I know that time physically cannot actually move slower, but I think that the simple fact that I’ve done so much this year and been through so many … More So Long 2018, It’s Been Some Year
I keep seeing videos for gender reveals all over the internet, and whilst a lot of people think they’re cute, sweet, and adorable, I can’t stand them. I didn’t mind them as much when they were just little things, like a pink cake or a blue cake, but like most things on the internet it … More It’s A… Stereotype
About 9 months ago I moved back home after being away at university, at it has definitely been an experience. Whilst the city that I lived in at university wasn’t a particularly big city, it was still a great deal bigger than the town I’ve moved back to. That change in scale has definitely been … More Small Town Life Is Weird
Who are you trying to impress? That was a question that my friend asked me the other day, after noticing that not only had I had my eyebrows threaded, but I had also had my nails done properly as well. I have to admit, that question stumped me for a little bit. I didn’t have … More Who Are You Trying To Impress?
Representation in the media, and in particular for me personally LGBT representation, is a topic I’ve been pretty passionate about for many years. Even before I’d even accepted my own identity as a member of the LGBT community I was annoyed by the lack of LGBT stories there actually were. Now I’m sure I’ve been … More Does Representation Matter?
The UK mental health system kinda sucks. It doesn’t completely suck, because at least we actually have one, so we’re doing better than some places at least. But from what I’ve experienced the one we do have is, like the rest of the NHS, is under-funded and over-subscribed. I’ve had a long history with various … More Why Are We Waiting
Yesterday my Mum got married, and it got me thinking about relationships, romance, and more importantly, the idea of soulmates. It’s an idea that I feel is perpetuated a lot in the media. So many films, books, and T.V. shows revolve around the idea that there is one perfect person out there for everyone. Two … More Are We Obsessed With The Idea Of Soulmates?
