There's been some huge changes in my job. Huge, as in, I won't have a job in February kind of huge. And I'm only now coming to terms with knowing the plan I had has gone out the window and I actually have to sit down and figure out what to do. It wasn't a... Continue Reading →


The loss of a man I didn’t know

This post will no doubt echo thousands of others out there, all mourning the loss of Chester Bennington, lead singer of Linkin Park, Dead by Sunrise, a father and a husband and a person. His death was a suicide. I hold no claim to have known him personally and I would probably have never met... Continue Reading →

So often in my mind I have the image of a warrior, standing tall amongst her enemies all screaming at her to accept her fate, admit that... Continue Reading →

Mental Health Awareness

So last week was Mental Health Awareness Week and I had plans to put up a post a day, inspire some people and help other people out. But my depression had other ideas and I spent most of last week in a bubble of self-despair. My ideas crumbled and I knew I wouldn’t be able... Continue Reading →

Why I’m Smiling – Week Two (bit late!)

So my promise to myself to post each week on a Friday was slightly optimistic, considering I can’t remember the last time I blogged consistently.
