Soulful Sunday – Convenience

convenience and choice

I often pay more for convenience. Sometimes I justify it, sometimes I get annoyed at myself for what I perceive as wasting money. Where is the line between saving money and saving time? When I travel, I usually go by the train. It's the fastest option, and the most convenient option open to me. Recently, … Continue reading Soulful Sunday – Convenience

Soulful Sunday – Gratitude for the Small Things

gratitude for the small things

As mentioned yesterday, my February this year has been taken over by illness. At least, that's how it's felt. I got a head cold at the beginning of the month, soldiered on with it, but then it turned into a chest infection and confined me to bed for a week. Two weeks later and I'm … Continue reading Soulful Sunday – Gratitude for the Small Things

Soulful Sunday – Blanket Statements

mental health blanket statements

The amount of awareness around mental health in the last few years is a good thing. It's been really heartening to see people talking about mental health so much more than when I was first diagnosed. I had no idea that such a thing existed, and no way to access others suffering with the same … Continue reading Soulful Sunday – Blanket Statements

January 2019 Quarterly Goals

So it might be a little late... I mean, two weeks of January are already gone, but I am feeling in need of some solid goal setting. New Year's goals are good, and I feel like I've set some good ones, but at the same time, they're big, and need breaking down. A little. Or … Continue reading January 2019 Quarterly Goals

Soulful Sunday – Christmas 2018 and New Year 2019

new year

It's been a busy year, and it's ending on a busy note. For the last week I've been buried in books reading for one of my English literature assignments, which, honestly, I wish I'd started reading for a few weeks ago. Another lesson learned. The entire year has been a steep learning curve, and that's … Continue reading Soulful Sunday – Christmas 2018 and New Year 2019

Soulful Sunday – First University Semester Lessons

university book

This past week I've finished my first semester at university. These are the lessons, summed up, I've learned from it: 1. Always be prepared. You do not want to be the person in the workshop/seminar who doesn't know what to say. Or says something completely wrong because you haven't done the reading, or enough reading. … Continue reading Soulful Sunday – First University Semester Lessons

Reflections of an Unknown Writer – Introduction

writer

I am a writer by nature - writing is my passion. It's the one thing that I love doing beyond anything else. At least, it is sometimes. And this is where I can't make a blog about one single thing. Everything in my life is connected. I struggle to write because I'm depressed and anxious. … Continue reading Reflections of an Unknown Writer – Introduction

Words & Thoughts – Weeks 34-38

changing road

Weekly thought & writing update.  Words Writing has happened, despite me disappearing. I promise. I've been working on Into the Unknown, and on some flash fiction. I've been reading a lot more than I've been writing again, which is okay, it goes in cycles. You have to feed the creative muse in order to keep … Continue reading Words & Thoughts – Weeks 34-38

Words & Thoughts – Week 32 & 33

hectic dreams

Weekly thought & writing update. Words Honestly, writing has taken a backseat again the last two weeks. Other things have taken priority. Which is frustrating, but also life. I think my problem is that I haven't really been prioritising my writing/editing. I've been unsure exactly what to prioritise this summer. I have so many projects … Continue reading Words & Thoughts – Week 32 & 33

Words & Thoughts – Week 31

angry waves

Weekly thought & writing update.  Words I am currently editing Into the Unknown, and I've decided to not use wordcount to measure my progress - I'm working in a bit of a confused manner at the moment, so I'm not going to try to explain here, but I'm finding that measuring my work in time … Continue reading Words & Thoughts – Week 31
