Another Four Podcasts You Should Listen To Right Now

Listening to podcasts has been a key part of my working from home day for quite a while now, and I’ll be honest, I’m worried how I’ll be able to keep up the momentum when I start my new job. In recent months though, I’ve realised that they’ve not just become part of my WFH… Continue reading Another Four Podcasts You Should Listen To Right Now

Four More of The Best Podcasts You Should Listen To Right Now

Last year, I wrote about a selection of podcasts I’d gotten into, including Shagged Married Annoyed with Chris and Rosie Ramsey, and Help I Sexted My Boss with Jordan North and William Hanson. To be honest, the four I listened to were pretty much the only four. However, working from home these last few months… Continue reading Four More of The Best Podcasts You Should Listen To Right Now

A Very Last Minute Hiatus

I wasn't particularly expecting to write this post so soon, but if 2020 has been anything, it's been utterly batshit crazy. Earlier this year I mentioned that we had started proceedings into buying another house, and things just started moving again when coronavirus took a massive shit on all of our lives. I'll tell you… Continue reading A Very Last Minute Hiatus

A Letter To My 10 Year Old Self

Update - April 2021 I'm re-reading this post in 2021, just over a week away from my 29th birthday, so I thought now would be a great time to re-share. I initially wrote this post as we started to ease out of Lockdown 1 (FFS), following months of having Radio 1 - specifically, Greg James,… Continue reading A Letter To My 10 Year Old Self

28 Lessons

Well. I don't think anyone with a birthday from March onwards expected to be celebrating in lockdown. Call me naive, but I had my cold little gin soaked heart set on this lockdown at least being eased in time for my birthday on the 4th May. But, it wasn’t to be. Don’t get me wrong,… Continue reading 28 Lessons

Hey friends. I’m back after my strange little last minute blogging break, that was heavily induced by my severely increasing pandemic anxiety. I’m pleased to report I’m doing much better than I was when my last post was published, although I still have my down days.

February 2020 Wrap Up

Hello all! February has certainly whizzed past and it’s time for another monthly wrap up. All in all this month has been alright - a large chunk of it was spent nursing a sprained wrist while the first week was spent mostly in a heightened state of anxiety due to the upcoming camera-up-the-butt thing. Aside… Continue reading February 2020 Wrap Up

Attempting to Be Eco Friendly When You Have OCD

I won’t lie, I feel as though my OCD is the sole reason why I don’t engage in as many environmentally friendly behaviours. Before anyone comes at me and tells me I’m using it as an excuse, I’d like to shut that right down and say that I’m trying. I wasn’t sure whether or not… Continue reading Attempting to Be Eco Friendly When You Have OCD

My Anti-30 Before 30

I’m often very guilty of focusing on stuff that I haven’t done or that I’ve failed at. I hardly ever look at the things I’ve achieved and I think that’s partially why I’m always so negative about myself. Most recently, I was looking through my 30 Before 30 list and it genuinely depressed me because… Continue reading My Anti-30 Before 30

Thankfully, the blogging community is a great place to share tips with fellow anxiety sufferers and reach out to others who are struggling. So, with that in mind, I’ve decided to… Continue reading The Anxious Person’s Guide to Starting a New Job
