I’ve been thinking a lot recently about how the right people seem fated to come into our lives at the exact time we need them. It’s weird, because I don’t think I believe in fate as such, but still there’s been some eerie coincidences. For example, in September 2010, how did I end up getting … Continue reading Friends For Now And Friends Forever
I’ve spoken in previous posts about social media and how it has both a light and a dark side. It’s fantastic for connecting people but it’s also unfathomably addictive. To narrow this discussion down even further, today I’m going to talk specifically about phones. It's how you're reading this right now, isn't it? I only … Continue reading Phones, Social Media, and the #Offline48 Challenge
This is late. Again. I know, I’m the worst. I’m also massively procrastinating because I told myself I’d go out for a run this afternoon BUT I HAVE TO GET EVERYTHING DONE FIRST, OKAY?! I’m also not quite sure where this post is heading. I wrote the word ‘pride’ down in my notes app a … Continue reading Why Are We Never Allowed To Be Proud?
Admittedly, moving to Edinburgh on the week of my period was a bad idea. I felt way more emotions than I otherwise would. I cried on my dog the evening before I left (he didn’t care at all—just sighed and tried to move away). However, despite still feeling emotionally fragile, and after four stages of … Continue reading I Moved to Edinburgh!
Despite being what a teen novel would refer to as plain, I’ve never been shy of taking a risk. Or of doing things on my own. Frankly, I got tired of people standing me up. If I wanted to do the things, well, I had to just pull up my socks and crack on alone. … Continue reading Taking Risks and Influencing…Myself?
I thought I’d mix it up this week and go for something less heavy. As you probably know by now I fulfil all the Cornish stereotypes and work in a pasty shop. In fact, I’ve been working in customer service since I was thirteen. So I’ve heard enough blood boiling bullshit to fill hundreds of … Continue reading 10 Things Pissing Off Shop Assistants (This One Specifically)
I’ve hinted at this a lot over the past few weeks but it’s always been distant. A thought in my head as opposed to a concrete decision. Now, though, I’m laying out the details. I'm moving to Edinburgh on the 15th of October (cue panic!). Since I first visited Edinburgh in 2015 I’ve wanted to … Continue reading I’m Moving to Edinburgh!
We all want to do something we love. If we achieve that we’ll never work a day in our lives, right? So they say. The reality for most of us, though, is we often don’t get much of a choice. We need to do what pays the rent and those jobs are rarely in line … Continue reading Losing Your Identity to the Rat Race
When talking about clothes shopping the expectation is always to go into the newest trendy shop, right? We never see influencer YouTube hauls from charity shops. Partly, I imagine, because it isn’t considered glamorous. When you own up to buying clothes in charity shops the response used to be a nose wrinkle and a quip … Continue reading Let’s Talk Second-Hand
This blog was hacked. What a nightmare (literally, I have actual nightmares about things getting hacked. Particularly my email which would be disastrous given all the agents I contact from there!!). All seems to be well now, though. This was caught quickly and I contacted WordPress who assisted me in locking everything back down/ cleaning … Continue reading My Blog Was Hacked…
