Fresh out of Uni, Fresh Out of Ideas

It must have been a week ago, I was sitting in my final e-Publishing class when my tutor asked the class, “name one thing you’ve learned from e-publishing.” I looked around at the quite frankly gormless faces surrounding me when I threw my arm up in the air and said, I don’t know about anyone else […] Read more…

The Demand for something Real: Love

This week I watch the romantic tear-jerker, ‘Midnight Sun’, about a teenage girl with a rare genetic disease who falls in love in a bittersweet story that left me trying to hold back tears throughout. I think when it comes to love, you’ll do just about anything for happiness. Less Bonnie and Clyde though, and more […] Read more…

Respecting The Self

There are many things I regret, especially within relationships. I think when it comes down to it, you have to swop regret for respect somewhere down the line otherwise, you’ll end up choking on your own fears. For me, the idea that I haven’t learned from my own mistakes is something that challenges me every […] Read more…

Can’t buy me love.

Its a Wednesday night and I’m sat in bed recovering from a near overdose from two delicious men named Ben and Jerry’s, when it suddenly dawned on me, can love really be bought? When it comes to relationships, is the ‘honey moon’ period essentially us being bought by dates, promises and promiscuous wild nights under […] Read more…

Define…normal

Define normal in relationships. That’s been a hot topic this week. When I listen to my friend’s relationships, and when they ask me, “Is that normal?” I have to question, what is normal behaviour in a relationship? When you think about it, the word, normal means something different to someone else, and being in a […] Read more…

Can we really have it all?

Can we really have it all? I thought, whilst sipping my morning green tea in a quirky coffee shop in town. Then it got me thinking, when do you have a wildly successful career and a great relationship? And is it possible? I say yes! But, that’s probably because my head is filled with sky […] Read more…

How to Ask Someone Out

I’ve been single for a while now and I’m not ashamed to say that on occasion (even though I’m focusing on my career), I miss having someone to talk to. Although the prospect of not being in a relationship right now doesn’t scare me, any single person will tell you, it gets lonely. I’m not […] Read more…

V-Day D-Day

  I looked at the date in my diary today and suddenly thought, what the hell is one buying for oneself for Valentines day this year? Yep, if it isn’t already obvious, I’m single. Moreover, I’m single with a cherry on top. This is my second year of celebrating the dreading d-day. I think last […] Read more…

The Principals of Being a Woman

I was watching news segments and reading articles online about the Women’s March yesterday, where women, men and children were marching in aid of gender equality. Inequality is happening to everyone, but for Women’s March, times up on women getting unfair pay, rights, conversations, and behaviour just because of our gender. I couldn’t sit here and […] Read more…

The Art of Getting By

    I was watching a film this morning with a cup of tea in hand, Pretty in Pink I think it was, when out of nowhere I just started crying. Thank heavens no one was in the house at the time because my family are those people who don’t leave you alone until you’re […] Read more…
