Mental health is something that I have written about fairly often, because it affects so many of us and it is something we all need to talk about more. And this post is going to be a slightly more personal account than others for exactly that reason. Although it scares me to write this, we … Continue reading A more personal account…
Dear old friend, Although it has been 5 years now since we last spoke, I still find myself remembering our friendship from time to time. When we were younger, we were part of a trio that I believed would be inseparable. We shared all those hormonal teenage years together, we had all-night sleepovers (38 hours … Continue reading Dear Old Friend…
Currently, most UK university students will be knee-deep in exams and assessments. So I think it’s about time we had a little chat about revision, managing stress and how to get through January with minimal emotional breakdowns. I will now add the obvious disclaimer that what works for me may not be as effective for … Continue reading The Inevitable Revision Tips Blog
A lot of people have been writing about Christmas recently, and thankfully the internet is saturated with articles on how to cope at Christmas, especially if you suffer from anxiety or depression.

I am in no way a political expert, but today I woke with a similar sickness in my stomach that I did on June 24th, when the UK voted to leave the EU. Personally, I am terrified of what the future now holds for … Continue reading 09-11-2016
For many years now, I have noticed a change in me. As a child, I was confident. I was creative and loved to write, draw and sing. I was active and liked sports. Obviously, as you get older, your hobbies and interests change and help mould you into the adult you eventually become. But I … Continue reading The Fear of Creativity
Organising yourself and your time can be a minefield of notepads and alarms and last minute scribbling. How you organise is a completely personal thing and differs largely from person to person. And understandably, every now and then we can all go a little off-track. We appear to lose all sense of space and time … Continue reading How I (try to) stay organised and on time.
As you may or may not know, I have just began the gruelling task of my final year at University. Over the past two years, friends have come and gone, life lessons have been learnt and (of course) many drinks have been shared. For most people, it comes as no surprise that I am already … Continue reading My first few weeks at University; then and now.
