Apparently I Drink Coffee Now?

As my time at camp rolled around to an end, I feel as though I can finally say I feel like a real writer. No, not because I've been writing a lot here (cause...I totally have...I swear) but because I'm finally drinking coffee. I've always been super anti-coffee. I hate the smell and the taste,… Continue reading Apparently I Drink Coffee Now?

The First Few Days…

It's been a while and now I don't know where to begin. I knew I wanted to keep you all updated on this journey as much as humanly possible, but it's been over a month now since I touched down into this crazy new world and I feel as though I've been non-stop moving ever… Continue reading The First Few Days…

2 Weeks To Go! | My One-Way Adventure!

The panic set in yesterday. "So much to do, so little time" is a phrase that suddenly became a reality for me. Don't get me wrong, I think I can do it, it's just a lot to process that I'm about to go away and not know when I'm coming back. I was saying to… Continue reading 2 Weeks To Go! | My One-Way Adventure!

3 Weeks To Go! |My One-Way Adventure!

It still doesn't feel real. Despite having my visa's sorted, my luggage bought, my packing list written and slowly starting to take place, it still doesn't feel like I'm about to leave England. I suppose it was the same when I was going to Winchester for University; not till I was placing my boxes in… Continue reading 3 Weeks To Go! |My One-Way Adventure!

What’s In A Name?

Parchment and Pencils was never meant to be anything more than it's first post. A university assignment that was set to help us find our way after our third year had finished. That assignment became Post-University Life. Every so often over the following 9 months. I occasionally felt the need to post something else. Sometimes related… Continue reading What’s In A Name?

Finding Positivity

Stand up and open a window. Or even better, go outside! Close your eyes and take in a long, deep breath. Think of the last thing that made you smile or laugh. Feel the wind on your skin and tilt your head up to the sky and just let go.

How To Live A Perfect Life

What is your idea of perfection? For me, I imagine a beautiful house with a porch. Surrounded by a lake and hundreds of trees with soft grass, scattered with poppies and tulips. I would have a porch swing I could curl up on in the evenings with a book while my partner sat across from… Continue reading How To Live A Perfect Life

January Review: 31/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

Wow. This is it! The final day of the 31 Days of Blogging Challenge has approached us and SOMEHOW I managed to keep to it! Several times I felt like I wanted to give up but when I think about how well it's gone I'm so happy I didn't.

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
