Today, after about a month of shear stress and deliberation, I finally bit the bullet, completed the last couple of steps, and sent off my application to UCAS. I have decided to apply for a second degree, because clearly the first 4 years and almost £50k of debt just weren’t enough. The whole decision to … More It Doesn’t Get Any Easier The second Time Around
It’s the first weekend in January which means that my social media feeds are full of people sharing their New Year’s resolutions, and I was going to write a blog post about how I don’t really like the idea of giving things up. However, I did that last year and if I’m honest there are … More Am I Really Doing This Again?
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
Today I had a plan for my blog, I had it half written out within my notebook, and was prepared to type it up when I got home from work. Until I opened my rucksack on the train to realise that I’d left my notebook and my pen at work. I didn’t have the blog … More An Advent Of Writing – Day 1
Dating is an interesting thing. I think it’s something that’s programmed in to us by society from an early age. This idea that an important part of a woman’s life is to find a nice man and fall in love. It’s an idea that’s perpetuated in thousands of rom-coms out there and more recently a … More Dating Is A Minefield
Dear Dad, It’s actually been 2 years and a day if you want to get really specific, though for a while I was having a moment where I couldn’t actually remember which date exactly it was. I knew it was early November, between Halloween and Bonfire Night, but I couldn’t remember the exact day. All … More Dear Dad (It’s Been 2 Years)
About 10 years ago I first got in to Doctor Who. I’m not sure exactly when it was, or who my first doctor was. I’m not sure if it Was Christopher Eccleston or David Tennant, but I do remember that the first season I watched religiously was the season that started with the episode with … More Dyspraxia, Diversity, And Doctor Who
