    5 Things – 2017 Edition

    Hi, Hey, Hello! So, it’s the start of a new week and the start of the first full working week of the year. And also the final time that I am going to get reflective about the year that has just passed. So I’m going to talk about the 5 good things that happened last year. 1) I got a pay rise – It seems kind of ridiculous that this is the thing that tops my list, but it happened twice this year and so it is. My job is my main cause of stress and this year it really ramped up, especially over the last quarter of the year,…

    Faves Part 4

    Hi, Hey, Hello! So, this is my 700th post on this blog, and it continues to sound crazy every time I think about the fact that I have written that many posts on here. The fact that I’ve committed to it for this long just blows my mind because, I know I’ve said it before, I just didn’t think I’d stick it out. And yet 4 or so years later here I am. Like I have done in the past when I have reached a milestone post I am collecting a bunch of my faves (5 to be exact) together. Although this time, they are all going to be from…

It makes you wonder how you never heard the song like before. It alters your very relationship with that song irrevocably. This happened to me on the 30th June at around 10pm. I was sat watching Jeremy Jordan totally crush it and crossing something that was unknowingly on my bucket list until I bought the tickets off. The opening notes to his combined version of Santa Fe (which I am pretty…

    Two Years

    Hi, Hey, Hello! So today is kind of a milestone for me (actually there a couple of milestones that fall in this week alone). It’s now been two whole years since this happened: Yep, I graduated 2 whole years ago and was officially ejected out of the reassuring womb that was the education system. And as such I’ve found myself getting all reflective about shit aka life in letter format. Because why not? Hey 21 year old me, So, a big thing happened today. You finally left education, actually managed to pull a 2.1 out of your ass, walked across a stage in heels you’d never actually stepped foot in…

    What I’ve Learned From Blogging

    Hi, Hey, Hello! Now I mentioned in Thursday’s post that there was one more slightly reflective post left coming from me. And here it is today. What I’ve Learned From Blogging Well first off all I’ve learned that if not taken care of properly it can take over every aspect of your life. Seriously. Every area of it. Watching TV, thinking about blog posts. Having a shower, thinking about blog posts. Trying to sleep, guess what? Thinking about blog posts. It’s kind of everywhere. It’s not necessarily a bad thing per se, but there are times when I just don’t want to think about anything really. Least of all a blog post…
