The 6 month countdown to graduation is on, I’m getting good grades but I’ve never in my life felt like I’m failing more than now. Week 9 blues, that’s what everyone’s calling it at Uni at the moment but if we’re all being truthful I think it began part of the way through week 3Continue reading “Feeling like failing”
Make-up and body care which helps animals, the environment, your skin, your make-up bag… and doesn’t break the bank!
A Notebook a day will not keep the doctor away. Not even if it’s dotted, lined, with a to-do’s section and has a goals planner.
I’ve started to think over the last week or so why I haven’t been writing as much, or why I haven’t had the urge or passion to write, which I do so often. I’ve been so busy and it got to the point where juggling everything just wasn’t possible anymore. Something had to go -atContinue reading “Making Mental Health a Priority”
Let’s chat about what’s going on up in those intelligent, confusing, wonderful and sometimes sad little minds of ours. By that I mean mental health.
Sometimes we’re so focused on improvement and constantly striving for that better grade, the next step job-wise, travelling more, being more social or finally working on getting the body you wake up every day and tell yourself you’re going to start working on getting. But most of the time I feel like I’m too busyContinue reading “The Art of Plodding Along”
The irony of this post is, I planned it out and wrote the first draft on a Monday and felt like I absolutely had my shit together…By Friday I was in bed sick because I’d run my body into the ground and was having the lowest day I’ve had for a long while.
The pressures of the student lifestyle, feeling boring and why that’s okay!
Our phones are buzzing with notifications all the time, but how do we feel when they stop? When we’re lonely or have had a crap day and everyone’s out or busy. It’s easy to forget about how busy other people’s lives are until you’re wishing they’d text back at 23.11 on a Saturday evening.
It’s a real thing! And it’s hit me like a smack in the face since I moved to the Netherlands.

Two weeks in the Alps to wind down from a hectic 6 months in Berlin and to end the year on an absolute high is exactly what the doctor ordered.
Did your mum ever tell you that if you stared at the TV too long then your eyes would become square? Well mine did anyway and I was innocent and gullible enough to believe it, but that’s beside the point. The point is, it’s easy to become surrounded by technology and artificial media these daysContinue reading “The 500 friend rule.”
Now and then there’s a straw that breaks the camel’s back or something that takes the wind from your sails. Whatever awful cliché you want to use sometimes we all feel a bit shit. And that’s ok.
Before I went on my Year Abroad, I had about 3 sessions (that I can remember) to do with YA prep, what to do, how to plan and all the thousands of things you should worry about. I even remember a Powerpoint presentation where there was even a slide reminding you to take your passport.Continue reading “The 5 things I wish i’d known before my Year Abroad.”
If you booked a week of work and could go anywhere you want- where would you go? Sun? See? An exotic holiday? …On my week off I went to…Sheffield😂
I heard this phrase one day when asking a friend how they were and I thought it was genius. It perfectly summed up how I was feeling! One thing i’ve learnt is that the whirlwind of a Year Abroad never stops…
Okay so this is going to sound ridiculous but stay with me…something I was not prepared for this year was the lead up to my Year Abroad. Obviously when I applied to Uni to do languages I knew that I would be going on a year abroad at some stage but it always seemed SOContinue reading “The Lead Up!”
