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
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.
I know you aren't supposed to talk about politics, money or religion, but that's not what this post is about. I was brought up without a pinnacle to believe in, I was brought up to believe in myself and the good in others – I suppose. But, I did go to a Christian school and… Continue reading Lent
Starting at university you get quite a clinical view on how friendships are made and the levels of friendship you have. Five months into uni life and I can now say I have got to the highest level of friendship - all will be revealed soon... (Or you can skip to stage eleven..) Introducing yourself.… Continue reading The 11 Stages of Friendship
I try and be productive at some point during the day, even if it's doing just one thing - and that thing ends up being brushing my hair! Today, my productivity started at nine o'clock at night. Obismal, I know. I knew I had started my day wrong when I woke up burning up and… Continue reading Starting my day Twenty-One Hours late
Things don't always go well for me, and when they don't they really don't. Today's been one of those not-going-well days. Days before university I bought myself a phone, an upgrade to the one before where there was no way for me to connect to the internet, no way to message friends across the world and no way… Continue reading Silver Linings
Hi, About four years ago I started writing on an e-book site; some have gone successfully (admittedly, the ones written over the past two years), and others not so well. I've always wanted to blog but with such a mundane life I thought I had nothing to write about. But I do. I started at… Continue reading Hello!
