This Week: Success and Failure

This Week: Success and Failure

This Week: 2/12/2017 – 8/12/2017 Success Success and failure at first glance seem like opposites, but actually they’re quite closely linked, and can even be experienced at the same time. This week I have felt a strange mix of success and failure. I got the grade I wanted on my assignment, yet I still felt …

Be Yourself

Be Yourself

I often feel that I do not fit in this world. The way I view things and the way that I feel often puts me at odds with the majority of people. Now and again I meet someone who shares my perspective, but it’s so rare. I meet more people who want me to be …

This Week: Endings + Beginnings

This Week: Endings + Beginnings

This week: 25/11/2017 – 2/12/2017 Endings It’s been a week of endings. I guess the most exciting one was NaNoWriMo ending with the month of November. It was stressful, and I am proud of myself or winning, for reaching 50,000 words despite having two essays due and other life stuff to live. As I’d just …

November 2017 Wrap-up!

November 2017 Wrap-up!

Defining feature of November: I’ve won NaNoWriMo!!! 😀 (Though only just and at the last minute.) It’s been difficult, fitting it in around college, but after failing last year (due to extreme life changes) it feels extra special to know that despite having started college and trying to fit all the life stuff in, I …
