It’s My Party and I’ll Stay Sober If I Want To

It’s My Party and I’ll Stay Sober If I Want To

"Come on, just have one drink!" "Have a shot! It won't kill you!" "Why are you always such a party-pooper? "Stop being so BORING." Scribbling notes in my favourite note pad one day (I do this every day FYI), I started taking note of the things people had said to me on a night out [...]

“I’d Like a Cheeseburger, Large Fries and a Cosmopolitan”

“I’d Like a Cheeseburger, Large Fries and a Cosmopolitan”

Long time no typing, little blog of mine. What's new with you? Nice new layout you've got there, and is that a new logo I see, too? You've been busy while I've been gone, haven't you! What's new with me? It's about time you asked.. Where to begin... first of all - where the f**k [...]

Even My Anxiety Has Anxiety: Part Two

Even My Anxiety Has Anxiety: Part Two

It starts in my hands – tingling with pins and needles until I lose the ability to move them. I watch them twitch as they hang immobile by my side. Breathing becomes hard, as if my lungs instantly lose the capacity to circulate air – they’ve given up on keeping me alive. Then it stops. I've [...]

The Girl Who Wears My Shoes

The Girl Who Wears My Shoes

I have never been a firm believer in New Year's Resolutions - I have goals, sure - but they're not specific to when the clock strikes 12 on the last day of the year. Instead, I decided to stop thinking I would reach my goals 'one day', and made today 'day one'. The last two [...]

The Internet is a Pint-Sized Blogger’s Best Friend

The Internet is a Pint-Sized Blogger’s Best Friend

To think I was a mere 12 years of age when I discovered this unfamiliar online portal that allowed me to interact with the world. I knew nothing about writing decent content or how to interact with other users. Social media was fresh communication for me - my friends had just started getting the hang [...]

Confessions of a Procrastination Junkie

Confessions of a Procrastination Junkie

Did anyone else blink and miss all of 2017, or was that just me? I vaguely recall doing some online shopping, voting YES in the Marriage Equality Postal Survey, reading some books, and watching Donald Trump make some questionable decisions whilst in charge of America. Somewhere mid-blink, I lost my passion to be organised, motivated, [...]

The Time I Met The Love of My Life

The Time I Met The Love of My Life

Is there such a thing as one great love? Or do people have more than that? I suppose you could say "we met at just the right time", or that "fate brought us together", but I don't believe in that. I think we stumbled across each other (we literally stumbled across each other at the local bar) [...]

Even My Anxiety Has Anxiety: Part One

It starts in my hands - tingling with pins and needles until I lose the ability to move them. I watch them twitch as they hang immobile by my side. Breathing becomes hard, as if my lungs instantly lose the capacity to circulate air – they’ve given up on keeping me alive. All hearing senses [...]

98 Artists, 67 Days and 3 Festivals

98 Artists, 67 Days and 3 Festivals

The memory of New Year’s Eve is still so vivid – one stage, one band, thousands of people and hundreds of shoeys. Jumping up and down because you don’t have any option other than moving with the crowd, feeling like your heart will pop out of your chest when the beat crashes out of the [...]

35 Days, 6 Lessons and 18 Years

35 Days, 6 Lessons and 18 Years

35 days later and people still ask, “so, how does it feel?”. To begin with, my answer was blunt and sassy. I don’t know, I feel regular? It’s just another day.. My response was not incorrect. Birthdays are generally just another day. Apparently, the celebrations of entering adulthood is a completely different story. I can’t say [...]
