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.

What I Wish I’d Known When I Started Sixth Form

Next month I’ve been invited to do something I never thought I’d be able to do. I’d deemed it impossible, been told by so many that it just wasn’t something that happens, not to mention that it was completely out of my comfort zone. I’m going to give a talk at my old school. Whilst I studied there, my school…
