When I (re)created this blog, I did so with the intention of it being a means of helping me with my own personal self development, tracking my self care and managing my anxiety. I think that kind of got lost along the way, especially because I only had the vaguest idea of how I wanted […]Read More It Probably Won’t Be As Bad As You Think
Brace yourself, I think this might be my most cynical post thus far. It’s Valentine’s Day. I’m so thrilled, can you tell? Since all this lovey-dovey commercial Valentine’s Day crap is being forced down my throat whether I like it or not, I thought I’d hit back with my own lil rant in response because […]Read More Ugh, It’s Valentine’s Day
Exciting? Scary? At the moment I’m feeling a lot more of the latter. I’m a few months away from finishing my degree and I have no bloody clue what I want to do with my life from that point onwards. This is a point in my life that’s always existed to me as some distant entity, […]Read More The Future Is…?
I can’t remember how this thought popped into my head, but, having just submitted my first essay of this year (my final year of university d a m n) I somehow found myself thinking about my early drawings and how I’ve progressed over the years. Then I had the idea that I could turn it […]Read More A Journey Through My Art
Ok, I know it’s January, so it’s maybe a little weird for me to publish a Christmas-themed post on my blog, but this was too beautiful an experience to not share. I especially want to show off the photos, haha! At the start of December, amidst all the rush and stress of essay writing, I […]Read More A Magical Experience
note: I actually wrote this a few weeks back, before December had even started. Then life got very hectic and deadlines crept up on me so I didn’t get round to publishing it quite as soon as I’d have liked. Much to my delight, the Christmas season has rolled round again. I’m honestly thrilled, I […]Read More Christmas in London
…or at least I’m trying. It hasn’t been quite that easy but I knew I wouldn’t be, but I’ve decided that it’s time to throw my middle finger up at anxiety. Essentially I’m trying to challenge myself a bit more to complete certain (usually easy) tasks even though they scare me. Normally I’d just resort to […]Read More I’m Giving Anxiety the Middle Finger
I’ve been painfully inactive on this blog. I have no good excuse for my inactivity, though I suppose taking a bit of time to focus on getting in the right head space and also making the most of my sister’s company before she leaves for university could be considered decent reasons?? Anyway, I thought I’d […]Read More Musings: It’s Autumn!!
When I started this blog, I started it with the intention of using it as a tool to help myself along a journey of self improvement, including, most importantly, managing my stress and anxiety more effectively. Yeah… so far I haven’t really done that. My post history makes that quite clear. I’ve planned to write many a […]Read More Starting Mindfulness to Control Anxiety
Once again, I’m living vicariously through a travel-themed blog post because I’m sadly unable to do any travelling of my own this summer. This time, I’ve decided to reminisce about some previous holidays I’ve enjoyed, which is definitely the closest I’m getting to a holiday abroad this year. I’ll try not to get too upset […]Read More My Favourite Holidays
