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?
I’m not gonna lie, this post is pretty much just gonna be around 1000 words on why women are awesome. If you’re not down for that, fight me. (Please don’t actually fight me, cause I’m kind of a wimp.) This week was International Women’s Day, and Mother’s Day, so pretty much 80% of my social … More Who Run the World
So, today would have been your 48th birthday. I’ve always been rubbish at remembering birthdays and ages, though yours was always slightly easier. Possibly from all those times I used to recite it for you when I was making your appointments, but now that your no longer here it’s like your birthday and age have … More Dear Dad (Happy Birthday)
One question that came up a few times at Survival 3 the other weekend was “Who inspires you?” The answers that people gave were interesting in their own right, but it also got me thinking about who inspires me in my life. Who are those people that you see and think ‘I want to be … More Who Inspires You?
This week has been a funny old week. It’s been one of those where loads of stuff seems to have happened, and yet at the same time nothing seems to have happened at all. It’s been one of those weeks where I’ve done a lot of thinking, spent a lot of time in self-reflection, and … More Maybe Being Single Ain’t So Bad
Okay so it wasn’t last night it was last weekend, and it wasn’t a DJ it was just a really cool group of people, and they didn’t save my life they just altered my perspective on it a bit, or a lot, I haven’t decided on that yet. So maybe that was a pretty shit … More Last Night A DJ Saved My Life
