I'm always on the lookout for individuality. Whether it's art for my house or new clothes or new notebooks. Especially notebooks. However, lack of funds and realising I already have so much stuff has caused me to redirect my approach. I've decided to invest my money into originality by turning to independent artists. From painters … Continue reading Art of the Month – November
At the beginning of last week, I told myself and my readers that I would do Blogtober for a week. I was all set and ready to go that night. The next morning I had a post ready to rock and I had ideas for the rest of the week. But if you look back … Continue reading It’s Okay To Fail
As an advocate for mental health and as someone who has mental health issues, I've done the standard, put it into Google and hope an answer falls into my lap. Of course it's not going to but as well as diagnosing me with about 20 obscure problems, I was also confronted with the common, 'Trick … Continue reading No more anxiety…really?
So as I was scoping out other bloggers, reading new posts, I came across Blogtober. My curiosity was piqued and I found out it's when bloggers post a new blog post every day throughout October.

Even now, when I'm past that and moving forward with my life, I still remember the bad days. I still experience … Continue reading World Suicide Prevention Day 2017
The past few days have been difficult for me. Well the past five months haven't been fun but I have been waiting for my referral to a muscular/skeletal clinic. That is what I've been holding onto, the possibility of someone being able to do something, anything to get rid of the pain. I was pinning … Continue reading ‘Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience…’
There are some days where I dread social situations. Some days I accept and even enjoy them. But all throughout my battle with my anxiety and depression and illness, there is one situation which I hate. One event that I put off, for as long as possible, even unto the detriment of my self-confidence. It … Continue reading Accepting Challenges
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 The loss of a man I didn’t know
My mind is full of ideas. And projects. And words. Heck it’s even full of one-liners I look for the perfect opportunity to use and never realise until the time has been and gone.
