Scrolling through social media recently (and there’s been a lot of scrolling) I’ve been feeling the pressure to be productive. To churn out more work than ever now I'm having to stay home all day. I want to make this lockdown count. However, it isn’t that easy, is it? On day two of official lockdown … Continue reading Productivity On Lockdown
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.

Talking about rejection only guarantees more rejection because companies don’t want … Continue reading The Importance of Talking About Rejection
I didn’t write last week because I took a week-long social media break to enjoy my holiday in Belgium.
