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…?
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
Before I get started I want to stress that everything written this post is based on my opinion and my own experiences. I’m not trying to speak for anyone else and their own experiences, I simply want to present my perspective. 13 Reasons Why has proved… controversial. It has definitely got me thinking. I’m not here […]Read More The Message That’s Missed in ’13 Reasons Why’
I thought that, since this week is mental health awareness week, it would be nice to publish something mental health-orientated. I’ve already shared my experiences with anxiety on this blog. I could share my experiences taking anxiety medication but I’ve already written about this before several times, once on my previous blog and twice here […]Read More I’m Proud of Myself
This was the topic of my first ever blog post on my very first blog. This was actually the reason I got into blogging in the first place (unless you count the crappy Tumblr blog I had where I’d inconsistently post music reviews ). When I first dropped out I wrote a post about it, […]Read More I Dropped Out Of University
Before you start reading I want to warn you that I will be discussing my symptoms and experiences in a fair bit of detail- if this could be an issue for you then I’d advise you to give this post a miss. I totally understand. I’m sure you didn’t think a post titled ‘My Anxiety […]Read More My Anxiety Story
