For some reason I’ve been finding writing hard at the minute, and I’m not all that sure why. I had half an idea of what to write last week, and then never completed it. Part of it I’m blaming on the fact that I’ve been ill and it’s sapped my motivation to do anything at … More Everyone’s A Critic
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
“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?
I feel like society has a very specific set of expectations as to where I should be in my life right now, I know that my grandparents certainly do. It goes a little bit like this: have a career in the subject that you graduated in (and failing that at least have a regular full … More Is It Too Late To Start Again?
Have you ever wanted something so badly that the very idea of it absolutely terrifies you? Have you ever put off doing something not because you don’t want to do it, but because you want it so much that you’re afraid of going for it and failing? I mean, let’s be honest, it’s less disappointing … More Don’t Let The Fear Of Striking Out Keep You From Playing The Game
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
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)
Dear Dad, Someone told me earlier this year that change is just a fact of life, that everything changes eventually, so we just have to accept it and roll with the punches. Sometimes however, these changes are easier to accept than others. Some change is easy, for the better. Others are harder, more painful to … More Dear Dad (There Are Changes Afoot)
Do we really still need pride? It’s a question that I’ve seen people ask here and there every now and again, usually by people who view pride just as an excuse for a load of gay people to have a party, get drunk, and hook up with strangers. I’m not going to lie, they do … More Do We Really Still Need Pride?
