A Voluptuous Mind · Anxiety · Social Media · Thoughts


I'm anti-social. Honestly, if I were left to my own devices I'd be a full-time hermit living on Cloud 9, never going out and having all my meals and necessities delivered to my door. Unfortunately, I also have severe FOMO and I like my friends so cannot live out my natural anti-social tendencies to their… Continue reading FOMO Oh No

Who Run The World?

Just a quick meme from me today, with a longer post on this topic later in the week. This, reposted from @huffpostwomen on Instagram, is just perfect and a very good reminder that there's enough room in the world for us all. Sure, sometimes we might need to check ourselves, but as women we should… Continue reading Who Run The World?
