Sometimes I do things that I know aren't normal. Sometimes I drink when I am alone, drinks that are too strong to be acceptable and enough to make it hurt the next day. Sometimes I smoke, something I would have been disgusted to do two years back. Sometimes I cut my wrists - I would have… Continue reading A confession
Dear White People, Last week I was going to write about how angry I felt when my friend told me to watch Dear White People. I wouldn't have been angry if it was because it was a good show, he told me to watch it as if I need to be educated on what it's like… Continue reading Dear White People
Today, whilst I was cuddling with my boyfriend the topic of my ex-boyfriend came up. I know, I can feel your cringe from here but we speak about him a lot, less so in the last few months, mainly due to what happened last May. I'm usually fine talking about it. There is nothing to… Continue reading He won’t Listen
I don't know about you but I have always been brought up fearing these two words strung together; cyber bullying. It's one of those facts that your head teacher gave you in assembly; every single one of us will be cyberbullied at a point in our lives. It seems to have only become worse with… Continue reading Are you taking the bliss?
Last week I went to see a councillor to talk about my anxiety. I am at the moment on the waiting list to have treatment for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and whilst I wait the services thought it was best I get control over my anxiety. I'm not going into detail about what we went… Continue reading 10 Supplies for your Self-Care Kit
If you live in Britain you have probably seen these posters everywhere. You'll see them in house windows, maybe on telephone poles and if they aren't outside NHS hospitals well they aren't doing propaganda properly. Every time I pass a poster, especially since the numerous times I have been in hospital the past year, I… Continue reading Save our NHS
On Friday it was the twentieth birthday of my friend Clara. I don't know whether she had a birthday cake but I'm presuming she didn't. Her day was spent travelling back to Brighton from her home, setting up for the party and then seeing her boyfriend. That night she wore a crown like she was… Continue reading Birthday Wishes
I'm not that into resolutions. I'm not that into change to be honest. I always make excuses like I'll start on Monday, or I have to get a partner in crime to do it with, or I just can't be arsed. I can never keep up with healthy eating, even though I have been brought… Continue reading Pinch-punch third of the month
What, G, you're writing about High School Musical? No, my love I really am not but I couldn't help but have that song playing in my head as I sat in my nutrition lecture because possibly it is the start of something new for me. There isn't a boy with an awful haircut singing next… Continue reading The Start of Something New?
And that's all it took to finally give me a kick up the bum and realise what I had. I have my mum and dad that would kill and die for me. I have my sister that I never want to see hurt ever, and I was going to do that? I have my longest friend that I would die for and I have two people, two soulmates (my man and my best friend) that are there through thick and thin and I could never leave or let down.
