• Why standing in a queue triggered my social anxiety…

    This is a topic that I just discovered I wanted to talk about on Wednesday, social anxiety, so writing this up might be a little haphazard. I will do my best to ensure it makes sense. This all started with a visit to my local pharmacy. I had been there a few times, with Jack. He has really bad asthma so I’ve had to wait outside there for him, and seems like it always takes forever because I would be sitting there for about 30-40 minutes. It wouldn’t bother me at all.  I would just wonder if he is okay, usually when we’ve resorted to that it is because he…

  • 30 Life Lessons I’ve learned in 30 Years & My post 30 thoughts…

    I have many post 30th thoughts, I mean its me so yeah I have a few. But more than that I have feelings that are really hard to categorise as thoughts because they so jumbled up…  Why write about this? Reading over my blog post before my 30th, called The Count down is on… I was so excited, nervous.  There were so many factors that I was stressing over – one of them being having a party and people not showing up when they said they would without contact. Which, unfortunately, did end up happening. The general overview I got from reading my own post is strange. I just had…

  • Is porn ruining sex?

    This blog post is coming at an appropriate time, with the impending Digital Porn Ban the UK government is initiating, is porn a bad thing?  What is the Digital Porn Ban?  Thanks to Jack I watched a youtube video from TLDR News that explains this ban brilliantly, and simply. Check it out here. that explains this ban brilliantly, and simply. To put it simple the Ban is to add age verification on most porn sites to be over the age of 18, not the whole click yes if you are over 18 but an actual verification of who you are, along with your age. As I was reading the comments…

  • Is being in love scary?

    Yes, in a nutshell. Being in love is a scary notion. Especially when you’ve been hurt in the past. It is a fear that resonates through your whole body and sometimes leaves you paralysed with fear.   Why write about love being scary? I was looking for inspiration. No topics were jumping out to me, nothing was making me want to type, no topics were jumbling around my mind. I had a mind blank, when your looking for topics to write about there has to be a line between what you share and what you don’t share. Like when I wrote my blog post about Neil, my step dad’s passing…

  • My struggle to feel pretty…

    I can be pretty… Even typing this out makes me feel uncomfortable. It makes me feel arrogant and up myself. Which I know I’m not. But the struggle to feel pretty shouldn’t just be an issue of arrogance.  Being called ugly is something I am quite well acquainted with. Being called ‘ugly’ is something I used to get really upset by. I mean who wouldn’t? I think for everyone its like a trigger word that brings on a floodgate of shame, embarrassment and lowered self esteem. Or even sadness.  But why does that word hurt so much? I know ugly is a negative word. I know it is. It is…

  • “Loneliness is part of your biology…”

        This is quoted from Kurzgesagt  – In a Nutshell. An educational youtube channel that Jack introduced me to. Loneliness is part of your biology – this is linked to our basic instinct to go into groups to survive. But does it have to be? What is Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell all about and how did I find out about it? At first glance it looked like a fun, school friendly educational youtube channel explaining complex issues/thoughts/ideas in a simple and aesthetically pleasing manner. Which, as you can see from the screen shoot of their about page below, it is! (Love it when your first impression on something…

  • Is adulting overrated…?

    Adulting IS overrated… but necessary. Life is hard and there is shit you have to do even if you don’t like it.  What is adulting? I’ve seen this word used quite a lot.  In fact I use it on a daily basis. I’ve been having to do a lot of adulting recently – acquiring a new full time job, that requires the limited spare time I have left to do the ‘adulting’ menial tasks before leisure time. Which in turn means it floats across my brain a hell of a lot.  The dictionary defines ‘adulting’ as;  “the practice of behaving in a way characteristic of a responsible adult, especially the…

  • The 2018 Review: Part 3 (The Last one!)

    September   Celibacy Dating, is it worth it?   It feels so weird re-reading this as I was chatting about celibacy dating then and now I am currently chilling in my room with my boyfriend… and we definitely don’t have a that sort of dynamic! Ahaha. It feels weird because I’m in such a different place now. This post talks about how I tend to put the others feelings before my own – especially sexually. I would usually feel quite frustrated and annoyed at myself. I felt my inhibitions were stopping me from utilising sex to its maximum capacity. I am too busy being in my own head and worrying…

  • The 2018 Review: Part 1

    Lets take a trip down memory lane, in my 2018 review. Not because I didn’t manage to get any photos scheduled for this weeks post… *cough* but because it is the last post before 2019 and I am very organised and smart to do this post 😀 *cough*   But despite my complete lack of foresight for this moment, aka not having a shoot organised for my last ever 2018 post, this couldn’t be a better opportunity to look back and reflect. Which is basically the traditional mindset that people are usually feeling at this time. I think… its hard not to at this time. When something ends its usually…

  • Podcast or blog?

    GET THE LOOK Jacket: Primark, old. Alternative here. Cheaper alternative here. Shirt: Primark, mens shirt. Similar here. Under Top: Primark Scarf: Primark Jeans: Zara Ankle boots: New Look   What is more important? What spreads the personality more? Podcast? aka audio or blogging aka the written word?    I’ve been thinking of this for a while now… audio or the written word? or written word over audio?  Basically whether or not to start a podcast.  I think it is a natural step forward for me? I’ve been talking about it on and off for while now with folk on the side. Not too in depth because I don’t want to…
