23. The Birthday I have dreaded for the longest of times – possibly my entire life. Although I know nothing drastic is going to change between the 17th March 2021 (age 22) and 18th March 2021 (age 23) I can’t help but think I should have made more progress than I already have. I must bare in mind that some of these life goals were … Continue reading Turning 23.
Recently, like many others, I haven’t been feeling quite myself and have decided to make making time for myself a priority. As someone who has continuously suffered from their mental health, I am used to the ups and downs it brings (or at least as used to it as you can be). I now know that although I do have lows I can bring myself … Continue reading the importance of taking a mental health day || lets talk about mental health
During lockdown, I developed a new skill and hobby which has quickly turned into a small business. Something I had wanted to do for a longest of times was digital art. Although I have always dreamt of being artistic until now I hadn’t found a style or format that worked for me.

By this point I think the pandemic must have impacted everyone in one way or another even if you are fortunate enough to have not caught the virus itself. Whether that be through changing your working habits, having events you have booked cancelled, having a loved one catch the virus or loss of employment to name just a few.

This new year I want to utilise a journal for its purpose – a stress release instead of a stress builder. Ultimately there are no rules when it comes to journaling but if you are like me sometimes without a prompt writing is a challenge. That is why I have constructed a list of 10 journaling prompts I plan on using during my first ‘proper’ month of journaling. Continue reading My January Mental Health Journal Prompts
Despite the pain that 2020 has caused I think it is important to admire some of the casual magic the year has bought. Unlike other years this is more challenging. For most there won’t be large life events – such as going on holiday or celebrating with friends to look back on but there is still so much to be grateful for! Some of those things may be things that would usually pass you by unnoticed. Continue reading Being Grateful for 2020
Taking on so much whilst battling chronic illness has definitely taken its toll and now I’m putting measures in place to make sure I don’t overwhelm myself and have time for activities like blogging which I used to find so much enjoyment in. Continue reading Getting the most out of my day with Chronic Illness
The class of 2020 are strong and resilient! We have faced uncertainty and cancellations at the time we should be celebrating. Last Monday (22nd June 2020) was supposed to be my official graduation date. I should’ve been celebrating in London alongside my talented peers but instead, my family surprised me with a garden graduation. Here are some of my favourite photos from the day! Despite … Continue reading Celebrating my Graduation in Lockdown || The Film Graduate
As I start the next chapter in my life I thought now would be a great time to start an impossible list! Honestly, I’m not sure why I didn’t start this sooner. Here is a list of goals I would like to complete during my lifetime starting from June 2020, at 22 years old. Unlike a bucket list, an impossible list is a list which … Continue reading Starting My Impossible List || June 2020
After our last evening in Munich, we got up early and made our way over to Munich Airport. This wasn’t to catch a flight but in fact to collect our hire car, the second of this trip. Our mission for the day was to make our way across Germany into Southern Germany in time to check-in to our Lindau AirBnB that evening. Continue reading Neuschwanstein Castle || Backpacking Europe!
