Dear Dad, I would apologise for this being almost a week late, but honestly I’m kind of done with being sorry for things that I can’t really do anything about, and unless I can switch my brain for a slightly more functional one then I’m not going to apologise. Life is kind of kicking my … More Dear Dad (Happy Belated Father’s Day)
There have been a lot of things that have changed for me since my Dad died, some of them good, some of them bad, and some of them that I’m probably not even aware of. Recently I became aware of a change in myself, that I’m not so sure is a change per se, but … More An Unexpected Side Effect
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.

But at the moment it’s hard. Life has changed for me, I have a new job, I’m doing new things, … More A Break From My Daily Prompts
Prompt: What could have happened to you in high school that would have altered the course of your life?

Leaving home is one of those time-honoured rites of passage. In theory most people will leave home at some point in their lives, usually by choice but unfortunately not always. No matter the circumstances however, leaving home is always a pretty steep learning curve. I left home at 18 to go to university, and it … More #20. Leaving Home
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?
What would you do if you woke up tomorrow in your younger self? If you had all the memories you’d made up to this point, but had somehow ben transported into your younger body.
