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)
The other week a person I admired, thought of as a friend, went on a spree of meme sharing. But not the funny sort. Not to me, anyway. These memes all said if you still lived with your parents over twenty-five you were a massive failure and a waste of space. One of them mentioned … Continue reading Why is Living at Home in Your Twenties STILL Seen as Failure?
I said this would be my year, the year I got at least one duck in my row, but alas it isn't. Surprise! My mum told me today there's no way I'm going to have the money to move out in the next three months. No way I'd get one of the thousands of jobs … Continue reading I Said This Would Be My Year
As of this week I’m back working in customer service. It’s coming into the season here in Cornwall (Easter break!) so a few part time positions have come up around the village. I really didn’t want to go back to shop work, if I’m honest, but I’ve found it a huge relief. Whilst selling pasties … Continue reading Dear Customer
Hello there! I’ve done a lot of ‘issue’ posts of late and gained a few of you lovely folks but I realise I’ve never done a proper introduction. So, who the bloody hell am I? The Dull Stuff: My name’s Rebecca (Becky, Becca, B). I’m 26 (birthday’s in July. Start saving up for presents…😝). I’m … Continue reading Meet the Blogger
We live in a world where mentioning money can take you out the running for a job. Fact. It’s happened to me. Mention the word ‘salary’ in a job interview and wait for the hissed intake of breath, the knowing glance at a colleague, and the vague non-answer. You can almost see them mentally scratch … Continue reading Why We Need Money & Why I’m Done Apologising for It
Patriarchy: a system of society or government in which men hold the power and women are largely excluded from it. Events this week have put the patriarchy back in the lime light (not that it was ever out of it) and so there was no other topic to discuss today. I, like most women, have … Continue reading The Bloody Patriarchy
Every new blog needs a Frequently Asked Questions post. So, these are my FAQs with a twist. So many people ask me these things… Please stop. Do you have a boyfriend? No. Please proceed to ask me actual questions about things like my happiness or my interests (do men get asked straight away if they … Continue reading Frequently Asked Questions (with a Twist)
