We did it. It was a struggle and there were a few miscommunication errors, but we did it. We moved from one side of the city to another in an afternoon. Currently the house is filled to the 11 ft ceiling with boxes and furniture, but we’re slowly unpacking. I foresee a few weekends of … More We Moved… Now to unpack and unburden.
I was recently offered an ongoing position at my job until December. With this came a slight pay increase which was a huge relief. Having made minimum wage my entire life, a slight reprieve from financial terror is enough to make me want to cry. While I’m pretty good with my money, I am planning … More Trying to find a side hustle
Moving is insanely stressful. It’s time-consuming, costs a lot, and is just upsetting half the time. The main thing I hate about it is not having my books everywhere around me. It’s depressing and I hate having to put them in to boxes where anything might happen to them. Maybe that’s just me (it’s totally … More Moving house and the struggle of owning a library
It was back in early February that I last did a fitness check in, and since then I’ve failed spectacularly. I gave up on calorie counting, I stopped going to the gym altogether and my will to look after myself decreased dramatically. I still managed to fit in to the Maid of Honour dress, but … More Another fitness check in

The likes, comments, emails and even friends texting me to say it was a helpful post was lovely and overwhelming. Well, the good news is I’m here with Part … More Managing Stress PART 2!

I’m just aware of my mortality, and my death positivity follows some fantastic bold statements that can be found over at The Order of the Good Death. One of the most important statements of death positivity … More My Eulogy
I’m in my late 20s. Closer to 30, really, and while getting older doesn’t bother me, my financial state, my feeling of a lack of adulting awareness and the feeling like I’m behind everyone else does bother me. Last week I woke up with this intense compulsion to get my life together and feel like … More Finances should be taught in schools.
A few days ago I posted a blog post about something personal and unsettling that happened to me. The same day I removed it from this site. I had a few of my readers ask me where it went, and my housemate asked me why I chose to remove it and if I’ll ever post … More Where Did That Post Go?
While going through my digital files I came across a folder from 2016 when I was attempting my third (maybe fourth) degree. This one was Writing, Editing and Publishing. Something I gave up after the first semester because I was sick of being given low grades because the lecturer disagreed with my views on morality … More The Responsibility of Writers – Finding an old assessment journal
Getting critical feedback is a vital part of developing your craft as a writer/creative. I personally find it critical for other parts of my life too, but we’ll stick to writing for now. I was meant to post this about two weeks ago, but life got away from me and I had no idea how … More Dealing with critical feedback
