We need to talk about mental health

For some reason, it can be a bit of a taboo subject online. This is partially due to the fact that mental illness is not linear, and not everybody experiences the same hardships as one another. The debate about whether or not antidepressants work has been a hot topic for quite a while now, but… Continue reading We need to talk about mental health

The apocalypse, cats, and jerking off: Marc Maron – Royal Festival Hall

You've probably heard of him, you probably love him -- or equal chances are, you might just have no clue as to who he is unless somebody tells you that he's the guy with the fantastic moustache in Netflix's hit show, GLOW. Either way, I think that we can all agree that he's a pretty… Continue reading The apocalypse, cats, and jerking off: Marc Maron – Royal Festival Hall

Get the haircut: Tuttii Fruittii London, and why I decided to cut my hair short

There are a few staples in my life that make everything feel stable. One is being able to get a nap in if the previous night left me feeling untested. Another - doing at least one productive thing every day. Be that reaching my daily target on Duolingo, decluttering, writing, or even just making a… Continue reading Get the haircut: Tuttii Fruittii London, and why I decided to cut my hair short

Hello, April…

It's been a year, but I'm glad you're back. When March stays rather wintry, April is usually a good indication that spring has finally sprung. As much as I love romanticising longer nights, hot cocoa, and cosy blankets, I thrive when the sun is out. The weather forecast isn't looking great for the next week… Continue reading Hello, April…

Anxiety: What is it, and how can you deal with it?

Though best to be diagnosed by a doctor for clarification, those who suffer from anxiety will be more than familiar with the symptoms. It isn't an occasional bout of nerves, nor a quirky personality type. Anxiety is a sometimes crippling mental illness that disrupts even the most basic aspects of day to day life. Several… Continue reading Anxiety: What is it, and how can you deal with it?

Nurturing your inner workaholic

To put it bluntly, I'm obsessed with working. My boyfriend is usually the first to tell me that he loves that I tend to be working on something, in some way, during every waking hour, but also that I need to chill out occasionally. At first, I thought he was being ridiculous, but every time… Continue reading Nurturing your inner workaholic

Girl gamers – is it okay to be one?

In the case that you clicked on this post, looking for an answer to my, albeit, rather clickbaity title, I want to start out by saying, first and foremost, that being a girl gamer is pretty bloody awesome. I was lucky enough to be born to a mother who raised me alongside some of her… Continue reading Girl gamers – is it okay to be one?

2018 goals

Spring is here - or, it should be if it wasn't for the snow blanketing most of the UK on and off this past couple of weeks. However, daffodils continue to sprout, blossoms are still appearing on the trees, and birds are still calling for mates. Time doesn't stop for a bit of bad weather.… Continue reading 2018 goals
