Are you okay?

“Are you okay?” “Not really.” *No reply* “Are you okay” “Not really.” “Well i’m here if you wanna talk.” “I would love to actually” *No reply* “Are you okay?” “Yeah, I’m fine.” “Great, now let’s talk about that really stressful thing that you hate talking about.” Brilliant. These are real conversations (If you’re can callContinue reading “Are you okay?”

My weekend away

Hello reader, I hope you had a fantastic September. As you might have realised, I took September off and didn’t make any posts. I have decided that this will be a recurring event. This is because I’m a student and, for students, September is a very stressful time of year. I hope you can respectContinue reading “My weekend away”

My (not so positive) experience with driving

For those of you who don’t know, I have always wanted to learn how to drive from a very young age because I was obsessed with the idea of freedom and being further away from home than ‘in town’ where I was in control. My seventeenth birthday hit back in March and I was readyContinue reading “My (not so positive) experience with driving”

Meet Miller

Some of you might know that I enjoy running. I enjoy it so much that I wrote about it and explained how it helped me with my mental health. Running is extremely important to me since it gives me the opportunity to be and feel free. I have even gone to the extent of signingContinue reading “Meet Miller”

The Takeover – Daisy Doyle

I’ve been asked to share this. It is a fantastic piece of literature written by one of my good friends, Daisy. My head spinning; my thoughts intrusive, it resembles a tumble-dryer. An anxious layer of doubt in the pit of my stomach, heaviness seems to take over numerous points of my day. Flickering thoughts previouslyContinue reading “The Takeover – Daisy Doyle”

It’s like there’s a barrier which you have to break down before you can do much moreContinue reading “Don’t let mental health be your brick wall.”

Opportunities

I will be leaving sixth form in roughly a year and when I do so, I will need to pray that I have enough opportunities open to me for me to make a decision with what I wish to do with my life. Luckily, at this moment in time, I have enough open to meContinue reading “Opportunities”

Life

Life is important. We will all live a very different life which varies in length, quality and excitement. We have no idea how long we will live for. This is a factor that I believe we cannot control indefinitely. However, we can ensure our quality of life. We can do small things like smiling onContinue reading “Life”

Green Day

Some of you might be thinking about the band (I was too) and I’m terribly sorry to disappoint if you were expecting this to be a post about the latter. However, this is about something much more exciting. Last week (13th – 20th May 2019) was mental health awareness week and loads of people wereContinue reading “Green Day”

Earth

Okay, I’m writing about something a little different today because this is something that has been in the media quite a lot recently. I’m just going to say that I’m ashamed to be a part of a race which is doing what it’s doing to the planet. I can tell that there are a fewContinue reading “Earth”
