27

It’s dawned on me that I’m far closer to my 30s than my 20s. I’ve started reading articles like ’30 things to learn by the time you’re 30′ and ‘Get out of these habits before your 20s end!’ but my age nor some stupid Buzzfeed list will define me, I assure you. If the last…

End of Year Resolutions

As we edge ever closer to the end of November, it’s almost the time where we slump into chocolate-and-constantly-repeated-Harry Potter film-induced coma. There are 5 weeks until New Year’s Day, and I am determined not to fall into a trap of ‘f*ck it, it’s Christmas’ throughout December and into January when the ‘new year, new…

Size Chart

Dress sizes; I’ve dropped 4 on the bottom and 2 up top. Am I ecstatic? Well, I was, until I wondered to myself ‘actually, what difference does it make?’ Of course, I’m pleased with the fact that my body shape is changing. I hear wind chimes tinkle and feel incredibly smug knowing that my clothing…

Why I banned my phone from my bedroom (kinda)

I bought an alarm clock. Except that it’s not just an alarm clock. It’s a little glimpse of; a little grasp at freedom, independence and some well-needed down time. Now there is no way I could completely banish my phone from my room. This chronic worrier would suffer from chronic guilt if I was to…

Discipline

I used to sprinkle sugar on my cereal, now I sprinkle supplements. I buy expensive food because it says ‘protein’ on the packaging. I drink smoothies for goodness sake! I log and track every calorie and minute of sleep. So why is it that I can’t resist a bloody McDonald’s if someone suggests one to…

“So when are you two having babies then?”

Possibly never, actually. The trouble is, I can’t give that answer to about 99% of people that ask but that is the crux of it. I’ve written about having PCOS before (the post got lost with the blog move, so maybe I’ll revisit it. Also I must remember that I have PCOS and that I’m…

Self-image

How do you learn to like your self image after years of disliking or feeling completely indifferent towards it? Sure, you can hold on to the fact that you’ve got a ‘cracking personality’ but believe me, that doesn’t always cut it. Your esteem is bound to crave more. Now I’m not just talking about size…

A few thoughts on sexual orientation

Nothing annoys me more than someone assuming my sexuality (or anyone else’s for that matter). Not because I’m offended (my mother and father raised me not to be a f*cking bigot) but because firstly, it’s none of your business and secondly, I cannot wrap my head around how and why I’ve just been stereotyped. Is…

‘Writer’s’ Block

Lately I’ve been feeling somewhat low. Nothing major – just a very tired and a bit whiny. The worst part for me though (other than constantly feeling like a zombie) is the ‘writer’s’ block. The word writer needs to be in inverted commas. I don’t consider myself a writer, yet. Maybe one day but right…
