Life Plans: The Desire, The Disapline, and The Down-right Disasters

"We're all in the same boat" Being in your early 20's sucks. We can't help but feel so much is expected of us when it comes to having our lives together. We are in an awkward transition of adolescence. We are no longer considered teens yet we're not being considered adults yet either. You can't… Continue reading Life Plans: The Desire, The Disapline, and The Down-right Disasters

Bad Days

Once again I find myself at your feet. Begging you to forgive me for abandoning you. It's not that I haven't tried, for the past two weeks I've created draft upon draft, different subjects, different themes... But none have been able to push through. You see, I've hit that slump. Yes, that one. The one… Continue reading Bad Days

Why Do We Rush January?

The glitz, glamour, and grumpy grinches of December make the last month of the year fly by. We then face the crash landing of the new year. Returning to work, resolutions that make us break habits we've had for so long, leading to withdrawals, fears, and doubts. Every single December, my news feed is flooded with… Continue reading Why Do We Rush January?

You’re Not Alone: 30/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

When I was 11, I had my first holiday romance. It was beyond cheesy, but for two weeks we were the best of friends. We would hold hands around the resort and would push each other in the pool. In the evening, we played snooker and sipped on fruit juice mocktails. Then, at the end… Continue reading You’re Not Alone: 30/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

Reading Forgotten Words: 29/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

I have a box. Both virtual and hidden somewhere in my room. The box is filled with old pieces of paper, notebooks, and scrap clippings from magazines. Each bit of paper has something written on it, usually an idea for a story or a poem. Sometimes it is a piece of work I plan to… Continue reading Reading Forgotten Words: 29/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

Flash Fiction: 28/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

Flash fiction competitions are everywhere. I see people posting about them on Twitter and many magazines offer the chance to tell a story in a set number of words. Sometimes flash fiction can be 2000 words and sometimes it can be 200, I've even seen ones as little as 10 words! I often think that… Continue reading Flash Fiction: 28/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

Dreamgirls West End Review: 27/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

Dreamgirls tells the tale of 3 black women, powerfully-voiced Effie, Gorgeous Deena, and the youngest, sassy little Lorrell, all desperate to break into the music business during the 1960's. The story is very similar to the that of Diana Ross and The Supremes. If you’re unfamiliar with the show, Dreamgirls began life as a Broadway musical… Continue reading Dreamgirls West End Review: 27/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

What Does My Future Hold?: 26/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

I was one of those girls. With a scrapbook of big white weddings, huge homes with miles of land, baby pictures surrounded by some of my favourite names. I would start dating a guy and it was almost like a countdown of how long I could last before asking them about their opinions on getting… Continue reading What Does My Future Hold?: 26/31 Days of Blogging Challenge
