When There Aren’t Enough Lifeboats

When There Aren’t Enough Lifeboats

When anxiety hijacks my brain, a part of my mind realises what is happening and tries to jump onto the nearest lifeboat to safety. Sometimes we make it there, maybe sweating a little, but the worst has been avoided. Other days, we leave stragglers behind to drown when there just aren't enough lifeboats to save [...]

I Like Big Books And I Cannot Lie

I Like Big Books And I Cannot Lie

You other brothers can't deny! If you know me, follow me (on the internet, not in real life) or have heard of me, you are likely to know I don't mind a good book or two... hundred. You know that urge you get once you've finished an insane Netflix series and you just HAVE to [...]

The Expectations of Growing Up

The Expectations of Growing Up

Growing up is weird. Am I an adult or still a child as I make my way through my twenties? People around me are getting married, having children and buying houses whilst I don't even like to make my own doctors appointments. As soon as you hit 21, it's like society delivers a gift at [...]

Addressing Cancel Culture

Addressing Cancel Culture

One mistake, one bad judgement, does not and cannot define a person. If it did, wouldn't we all be terrible people? I am no stranger to having my dirty laundry aired, so to speak, for the internet to see and hate me for. When screenshots from a private conversation are surprisingly made public, there's not [...]

Good Things Cannot Be Forced

Good Things Cannot Be Forced

First and foremost, a lot has happened in the short time I have been gone. I hope you and your close ones are well and safe, and for the first time in a long time, I have no words. I hope Sincerely, E can be a distraction - a place that is positive and enlightening [...]

A Hiatus.

A Hiatus.

I knew, deep down, when One Direction went on "hiatus" in 2016, they were never coming back. "A hiatus is just a break, they'll be back!", everyone said. And look where we are now. Forever a One Direction-less Directioner. This will be a short post, because unlike Harry, Niall, Liam, Zayn and Louis, I am [...]

From 12 to 21: The Lessons I’ve Learned

From 12 to 21: The Lessons I’ve Learned

Half of my life has been spent writing stories on the internet. I was only 12 years old when I stumbled across this story-telling portion of the web - there were a few other blogs floating about at the time, but nobody really knew what they were. And here we still are, hundreds of articles [...]

The Time I Dedicated a Tattoo to Tiffany’s

The Time I Dedicated a Tattoo to Tiffany’s

Much like a branding, "Please Return to Tiffany & Co New York" is stamped on the back of my leg for life. Why did I do it? Am I an Audrey Hepburn fan girl, or do I just love those tiny little blue boxes with dazzling diamonds inside? Let's start at the beginning. I'd like to [...]

An Interview with VERA BLUE

An Interview with VERA BLUE

Six years ago, there was no such thing as Vera Blue. But, there was a folk musician by the name of Celia Pavey. A 19-year-old Celia took a chance to make it big in her career as a singer-songwriter, auditioning for season 2 of The Voice Australia in 2013. She placed third, and a true [...]

Finding Myself at 20

Finding Myself at 20

My entire perspective changed with a small act of kindness. A complete stranger, as her good deed for the day, paid for my meal at the McDonald's drive thru a few weeks ago. She didn't know what I was ordering, I could have ordered food for 10 people for all she knew. But, that lady [...]
