Recently I’ve been trying to do my bit in order to help the environment, but if I’m being completely honest, sometimes it feels practically impossible. It reminds me of trying to unravel an incredibly tangled ball of yarn, one that contains multiple strands of thread, each representing a different aspect. Things such as animal welfare, … More How Do You Unravel A Ball Of Yarn?
“You’ll be grateful when you’re 30!” is something that I get told a lot of the time whenever I complain about my baby face. It’s a very fair comment, and there have been times recently when I’ve been very grateful for my baby face. But there are also times when my baby face becomes an … More It’s Both A Blessing And A Curse
This week I really didn’t want to write a blog post. I have zero motivation, no ideas that aren’t just “climate change is real, we’re killing the planet, and people are trash,” and nothing that I’d already pre-written (at least not that I want to post on my Sunday blog post). Really all I wanted … More Do I Have To?

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
The Christmas Card. Hannah stared at the envelope on her doormat for a few seconds in confusion. Hardly anyone ever wrote her cards or letters, in fact most of the post she got was junk mail or flyers for the local takeaways, and the handwriting on the front of the card was one that she … More An Advent Of Writing – Day 14
