Delicious diatribes and caffeinated creativity.


Welcome to Tirades in Teacups.

Having left social media at the end of 2016, this very small, humble blog is my place to sound off ideas without the filter bubble or echo chamber feedback that is associated with every other social media. Since then, I have completed several diplomas, certificates and short courses and am currently studying Human Resources Psychology in an attempt to understand people better and how those people (and their unique, individual lives) interact in a workplace environment (and how I can make that workplace better for everyone).

I write about a variety of things – from science to feminism, mental health to workplace conduct, and my own experiences as I go through life. I just write whatever I want whenever it feels relevant to life. I was recently diagnosed as being on the ADD-ADHD spectrum, and am currently going through the process of adapting to that revelation. Everything I’ve ever struggled with finally has a reason for it having been a struggle. I write with the hope that someone finds comfort in what I write, or finds it useful.  I’m more comfortable writing, even if poorly, when I have some knowledge, stats, or personal experience behind me. So the blogs come sporadically. They come as short snippets, journal entries, or even as unsolicited life/work advice. They are my way of trying to connect with you and my way of trying to stay sane in moments when I feel the world has lost the plot.

I look forward to your readership, and I’m always interested to hear what you think. I love critical feedback, and you’re more than welcome to leave a comment, or contact me through the contact page. If you’re going to give feedback though, just remember: The world can be pretty rubbish, so try and be radical – be kind. Be critical, give solutions to the problems you see, but, you know… Don’t be a dick rude about it.
