Love is beautiful, and it takes so many different forms. I think romantic love is complicated, messy, and incredible, but it’s not necessarily an important form of love. It’s wonderful if you do find it, and you should cherish it in yourself and others, but life is no less fulfilling without it. Man, can you … More #27. How Do You Feel About Love These Days
Funnily enough, I think if I’d have married my first love I’d still be in the same town I’m in now, but I think the Journey there would have been vastly different. In fact, I don’t think there would have been a journey at all. Instead of moving back to my home town after finishing … More #10. Where Would You Be If You Had Married Your First Love?
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?
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)

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
I haven’t written a blog post in ages and to be quite honest I’ve missed writing. Part of the reason I haven’t written recently is due to being incredibly busy with uni work and not having the motivation to write. But in all honesty the reason that I haven’t written is because I knew that … More The Masks We Wear
When I first saw you it was on the floor of a friend’s bedroom. You had modelled for university photo -film they had produced. I thought you were absolutely gorgeous. A few alcoholic drinks and some stalking of your (very sparse) Facebook profile later I sent you a friend request. To my surprise you actually … More It’s a Love Story
As teenagers most of us sit through some sort of sex education that usually ranges somewhere from abstinence is the only answer to a slightly more in depth discussion of which methods of contraception are best and how to prevent STI’s. However, whilst I was at school at least, the only sex we were ever … More What it’s Like Having Sex with a Trans Person
Ever since I was little I have been completely obsessed with Billy Elliot. I don’t know exactly how old I was when my obsession started but I reckon I must have been around 10 or 11 as it was when the musical very first hit the west end and they were doing promotions for it. … More Billy Elliot, Balls, and Bow Ties
Given that Valentine’s Day was a couple of a weeks ago I thought that I’d write a little something about it. As a general rule I don’t really care much for Valentine’s Day, it’s the sort of holiday where I can take it or leave it if I’m quite honest. In my opinion I think … More A Little Bit of Romance
