Twisted Nerve

Anyone else spend a fair portion of their life worrying that they're not a good person? I think I question this every day at least once but when drama occurs the feeling hits me tenfold and I go all floppy with inertia.

Cry for the Bad Man

Ugh. Some days no matter what you do, things just won't go your way. One thing can throw you off or get under your skin and then suddenly you're sobbing for every bad thing that ever happened to you. That was me this morning, Wasting perfectly good make-up on something (and someone) insignificant but also… Continue reading Cry for the Bad Man

FOMO Oh No

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.

Or even if dreams really do mean half as much as we give them credit for. I'm thinking of getting… Continue reading Dreams Can Come True (But I really hope they don’t)

The other week was Mental Health Awareness Week and I had planned to post this then as a celebration of my own mental struggles - but of course I never got the time/had the energy to sit down and polish off the right words. I do think it's great that this week is marked in… Continue reading A History of Silence

So much for Motivated May, eh? I had all these plans to keep the posts flowing throughout Mental Health Awareness Week and then... I couldn't muster the energy. Instead I had a very chilled week, mainlined Safe on Netflix and spent time with my beloved. Which sometimes is all the self-care you need. MHAW was… Continue reading Smental
