To Move Or Not To Move: Feeling Anxious About Change

I’ve been living in London for getting on to five years. The first year was spent in halls, desperately trying to balance food purchases and nights out on my student loan, all interspersed with standing in pissed-in lifts and finding live mice in the cooker of our Zone 1 flatshare. Year Two’s accommodation was a beautiful but freezing cold Victorian…

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018

2017 was a wild year. Whilst I had many wonderful experiences, (like I can’t shit on a year in which I met Kehlani and went to a Star Wars premiere,) it didn’t come without it’s challenges. As much as I enjoyed all the 2017 recaps on my friends’ instagram stories, I didn’t really have much to say myself, and as cliche…

A Year After Sobriety

This week marks a year since I started working on my relationship with alcohol. Before we launch into it: to confirm, I am not currently sober. I initially went sober for 100 days, and now do periods of sobriety to check in with myself and to confirm that I still feel in control of my drinking. I won’t lie, it…

I Don’t Know Who I Am And It Scares Me

Two Fridays ago, I was told that I wasn’t going to be working with a particular company. I’d spent the best part of three months meeting with them, sending over summaries of myself, trying to persuade them that I would be a good investment of their time over the next year at least. The lady I’d met with told me…

What Happened In October

Can you even believe that October has been and gone? We’re heading swiftly towards 2018 and every time I remember this I feel mildly panicked. Where did 2017 go?? It was a ridiculously busy year for self improvement so I kiiind of get how it’s flown by but that doesn’t excuse anything… My September self made an accurate prediction: October…

Working For Myself: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

As it’s nearly Halloween, let’s talk about something scary: the post-graduation fear of finding regular employment. I certainly had my fair share of nightmares in the months leading up to my dissertation hand-in, and many centred on how the heck I was going to find a company who wanted to employ someone who’s skillset was not even remotely connected to…

What Happened In September

The first month of the school year has been and gone. My newborn blog is now four weeks old. Oh, how time passes. September has been good to me – not in clear, obvious ways, such as big projects landing in my inbox or exciting life developments, but more so in terms of my frame of mind. Most noticeably, I…
