Lessons From the Classroom – Science

Hey friends, I’m back with another batch of Lessons From the Classroom! Today, we’re taking a look back at Science - the subject where, in theory, it all went wrong.

Lessons From the Classroom – English

I recently discovered a folder full of my old school reports - literally from reception right up to my final year of sixth form. My Mum kept them all over the years and gave me the folder a few years ago, and I only just came across it again. One evening, I got a bit… Continue reading Lessons From the Classroom – English

2020 in Review

Well, 2020 has been a sack of shit, hasn’t it? I’m sure I’m not the only one who can’t wait to see the back of this utter ballsack of a year - and reading back through my 2019 review, pretty much everything I mentioned in my ‘hopes for 2020’ section got cancelled...but you know, 2020. … Continue reading 2020 in Review

2020 Personal Goals: A Review

Oh dear. I’m just going through the headings of this post and thinking LOL. Initially, when I was planning my December content, I thought a review of my 2020 personal goals post would be a good idea. In hindsight, yes it would be. However, what late 2019-early 2020 me didn’t realise was that coronavirus would… Continue reading 2020 Personal Goals: A Review

Monthly Wrap Ups

November 2020 Wrap Up

Well, November was one of the many, many write-offs we’ve gone through during 2020 wasn’t it? At the end of October it was announced that the UK would be going back into lockdown between the 5th November and the 2nd December, and the whole of the UK got even more pissed off at the news… Continue reading November 2020 Wrap Up

The Therapy Diaries

The Therapy Diaries 6 | The University Years

I recently brought back The Therapy Diaries - looking into my experiences of the different forms of therapy I’ve had over the years. In the last instalment, I wrote about the long waits and numerous assessments I had before I finally had my CBT for OCD. However, today, I’m going to rewind a little -… Continue reading The Therapy Diaries 6 | The University Years

The Therapy Diaries 5 | Long Waits and Too Many Assessments

After a bit of a break, The Therapy Diaries is back! While we’re coming up to my most recent brush with my local mental health service, I felt that I wanted to do a post around the journey that led up to it, as it was certainly a stressful one. Of course, my previous experience… Continue reading The Therapy Diaries 5 | Long Waits and Too Many Assessments

Five Lessons I Learned Buying My First House | 30 Before 30

In August 2020, we moved into our brand new house. After a very shaky start, with a lot of uncertainty throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, we suddenly found things going full throttle when it came to moving. Our sale suddenly completed, and we had two weeks to pack up our current property and get the hell… Continue reading Five Lessons I Learned Buying My First House | 30 Before 30

Jewellery Box Stories

This particular post idea was inspired by a blog by New Lune, looking at life lessons and stories behind favourite jewellery pieces. Anyone who knows me will know that I love my jewellery.

Tattoo Tales

I’ve written about my experience getting my first tattoo as part of my 30 Before 30 series (which btw, I’m SMASHING...jks I’ve done sweet FA throughout 2020 and the early part of 2021), but I wanted to share a bit more about why I chose them and the meanings behind each one. I’ve wanted a… Continue reading Tattoo Tales
