First blog post: starting fresh

Hello Everybody!

I have been blogging since the beginning of 2015. It’s nearly 2017, so that’s nearly 2 whole years I’ve spent rambling on the internet. I didn’t always have this blog though, no, this is my new blog that I have decided to start (quite late at night… I should be sleeping for school tomorrow) simply because I felt like a change. After a while, I found that I wasn’t really enjoying myself and blogging felt more like a chore than a hobby that I love to do. I feel like a change of scenery will cure this, so I’ve decided to throw caution into the wind and set sail on a new blogging adventure over the great ocean we call the internet.

Smashing that Interview

We’ve all been there, the dreaded interview. Whether it’s for a job, work placement or academia, the phrase “we would like to arrange an interview to discuss your application further” is enough to strike fear into the hearts of all of us.

Book Review

It’s been a wee while since I’ve reviewed a book, not because I haven’t been reading (because I have) but because I simply couldn’t be bothered to sit and actually think about how I felt about those books. I have Goodreads and I’ve set myself the challenge of reading 50 books this year. We’re half way through the year and I’ve only read like 11 so I actually feel a lot of pressure to blast through books like there’s no tomorrow. Continue reading “Book Review”

Random Road-trip

It’s been a hot minute since I have done something completely spontaneous and outta the blue. I’m the kinda gal who has to have everything planned out by time of departure and activities to partake. So when my sister asked if I wanted to go on a road-trip with her and her boyfriend I was a bit apprehensive. After some persuasion I was convinced to go and I’m so glad I did!

5 Ways I Deal with my Mental Health

Anyone suffering from any form of mental illness will know just how difficult it sometimes is to cope from a day-to-day basis. I actually often find that because I got a bit of help (6 weeks of free counselling and a few anxiety meds) there is an expectation for me to be completely fine all the time. This is ridiculous. Just because I’m ‘recovering’ doesn’t mean I can’t have bad days.
