  • 2017 in review

    It seems to be the done thing to do a "year in review" post. I initially scoffed at the idea, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought about how keeping track of accomplishments can be a little encouragement and ego boost. So here goes!

  • Music obsessions

    I go through phases of really liking an album, searching for it every time I open Spotify and then, a month later, never listening to it again and forgetting about it. With Spotify and the wealth of music available, I feel I latch on as I'm too afraid to venture

  • How I kicked a millennial habit

    Changing habits is hard - especially when it's being part of your lifestyle for so long. After watching a video, I decided to address my reliance on social media and mobile phones.

  • Wait, What?

    I didn't realise that my last blog post sounded so morbid. I didn't realise it sounded so dark. I enjoy writing, I enjoy creative writing and so, I like to challenge myself. The is no message, no hidden words behind the text on the page. My writing process involves thinking of

  • Forget-me-not

    Frank Turner, a wonderfully talented musician with whom I have recently embarked a music-man crush upon, has sung some beautiful songs on his recent album. Those songs range from the most awesome, summery but yet depressing (when you actually listen to the lyrics) to the insanely wonderful. Songs which drip
