Urm... So, I don't try to focus on stats too much but my blog somehow took off in November?! I don't even know what happened but I am beyond grateful and I felt like I had to do a post about it because honestly I'm still a bit confused (in a super excited and happy way). November has been an … Continue reading Reflecting on November
When I left secondary school I was really excited about the fact that I suddenly would be able to wear my own clothes to school and leave my uniform behind. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t the worst uniform in the world (although we did have bright blue kilts…) but I was happy that I … Continue reading Assessing Appearances
I find it strange looking back to when I first realised racism existed. Nobody is born with an inherent understanding of racism, it is something that you learn as you grow up in this world and something that you, unfortunately, just come to accept as a way of life. As a child, my dark skin … Continue reading Growing up with Modern Racism…
I feel like a lot of the time we really underestimate how hard it can be to be happy. We all have moments of happiness, and bursts of joy, and yes, some have them more often than others, but how often are we really content? I have had long periods of time over the last few years … Continue reading Happiness
Okay so I've mentioned about a million times that I've been super busy recently but here we go again (I promise this post is gonna get better). As you may know, I had a bunch of blog posts scheduled for like a month and a half so I didn't have to blog much through September and most of … Continue reading Compartmentalising
I had no idea what to write for today's post, but I knew that I wanted to sit down and write something, so I figured why not have a little ramble and get the things on my mind onto a page (or, you know... screen). You see, I mentioned in my project 2017 update that I've … Continue reading I’m Growing Up I Guess?
It's easy to hold a grudge. It's easy to fall out with a person, or have a disagreement and decide that you will never forget and be angry with them for the rest of your life. I used to think exactly this, and I used to never let anything go, but recently I've really got … Continue reading Life’s Too Short to be Salty
I find that when you turn something you're passionate about into a habit, it can be quite easy to fall out of love with it. I've done it with writing novels, I've done it with learning the piano, and a while ago I did it with blogging. I didn't stop blogging; I like routine, and I … Continue reading Getting That Passion Back…
We've probably all heard this at some point... Whether we've been the one saying it or the one receiving it, "You've changed" seems to be considered one of the deadliest insults around and I could not be more annoyed with the stigma. We're human beings, we grow and we evolve and if we didn't change from time to time it … Continue reading “You’ve Changed”
I feel like as a girl, catcalling comes to be something you just accept and deal with and honestly when I think about it it really irritates me. I can't count the amount of times I've experienced some sort of street objectification: from being beeped at as a car drives past me to having "compliments" at me on … Continue reading No, I Don’t Appreciate It.
