#Dear Mind

16th May 2019

Trigger Publishing asked if I wanted to get involved with their #DearMind campaign for Mental Health Awareness week. #DearMind You are my worst critic. You are my meanest friend. Why do you become clouded so often? Why do you trick me into believing that I am alone? Fat? Worthless? Stupid? I try to ignore you, […]

Spring Term Aspirations

9th January 2018

  Yesterday I started to have a lil panic as my Christmas holiday is almost over – SAD ASS TIMES – I consoled myself by singing White Christmas and then contemplating why January doesn’t have it’s own playlist? Every month should really have its own playlist right? Then we’d actually notice time passing, mind. blown. […]

World Mental Health Day

10th October 2017

We are lucky to live in a time when mental health is considered to be as important – if not more important than physical health – rather than it being treated as a taboo subject or a it’s-all-in-your-head-get-over-it problem that mental health sufferers have faced in the past.

The Reality of Living in an Instant Society

8th September 2017

We live in the age of fad diets, quick fixes, instant messenger, social networking, 24/7 live news updates; everything we want to know, do, see, read, be, we are told we can instantly have. This is ingrained in us, text that person now to see if they’re on campus, who was that in the film […]

Escape

6th May 2017

I drove on the road I always drive on, going I’m not sure where while the sun sets over York. I decide that rather than turn around to no plans and an empty room that I continue on that road until I reach the sea. Drive several miles and reach Scarborough. Then I’ll feel better, […]

Cut the crap. 

10th April 2017

Cutting the crap was a NY resolution that Beth and I drunkenly decided on NYE to keep in 2017. And so far, we’re both doing pretty god damn well really. We basically wanted to cut the crap in all areas of our lives, the food, bad thoughts, bad people, bad events, things we didn’t want to […]
