An Act Of Kindness

Spending Time Alone

I’ve been spending some time alone. At work on my lunch breaks I’ll sit outside with an iced coffee; sometimes my work friends will join me other times I’ll just sit there for a while myself. It’s nice. I’ve noticed this one rose growing by itself and some smaller pink and purple flowers I don’t…

Come Back Like You’ve Never Been Away

I’ve missed being active on here. I’ve written extracts and posts which have sat in my drafts for a while now. Yet none of my work seems good enough. Or, rather, worthy for the public. Yet I sit and wonder why I’m letting myself get sucked into the trap of perfection and social acceptance when…

I’m Not Always A Good Person And Here’s Why.

I have a confession. I’m not always a good person. I do things that aren’t things that good people would do. But here’s the catch – I’m glad I do them. Before you jump to wild conclusions, I’m not a bad person either. I regard myself as a good being and I try to do…

Are Blue Light Glasses Worth it?

Disclaimer: this is not an AD. I’m not being paid what so ever – though if the company would like to reach out, feel free to do so by all means. I purchased blue light glasses a couple of months ago to see how it would help me. I have chronic migraines, which can largely…

A Walk Down Memory Lane

I lived and studied in bristol for 3 and a half years. I hadn’t visited the city or uni before applying but the first night of moving, when myself and my flat mates went for a stroll around the city – I fell in love. I’ve never quite had that feeling before. In an unknown…
