Day 1 – 14DaysOfWriting

A 15 minute stream of consciousness writing exercise. Help, where do I start? Already misspelled my first word but what can you do. I’m looking forward to the rest of the 14 days of writing, wherever that will take me. I’m officially starting on day 3 due to my mother being here and just not […]

Back in July 2014, I wrote this post: Earlier today, I got this tweet from one of my friends: “In fact I double dare you! 🙂 Writers yearn to be read! Let us read you!” and decided to start this blog. I’m scared of people actually reading my random thoughts, short stories and random ramblings […]

Back to Youtube?

Wait, video? Seems I’m recording more videos than blogging these days, even though #Blogtober preparations are well on the way at this stage! I used to love making video and uploading them to YouTube. General silliness, Ice Bucket challenge in 2014, drunk chatty videos, everything. Hope to do more with it, including businessy stuff for […]

#WhoNeedsYourYes

Apologies, My foreign readers. This is a very open post about the upcoming referendum in Ireland about repealing the Eighth Amendment. Feel free to stop reading, unless you’re interested in pregnant people’s rights, abortion and why this is extremely personal to me. Article 40.3.3, known as the Eighth Amendment, was voted into the Irish Constitution […]

Back to blogging, for me.

Back to blogging, for me? Back to blogging, for me. I don’t know why I stopped, think it was a combination of writer’s block and complete lack of motivation to do anything. SAD tends to hit during the wintertime and I generally don’t want to get out of bed or do anything while it’s in […]

29. World Suicide Prevention Day

Trigger Warning: Suicide Yesterday was World Suicide Prevention Day. Even though it has been 5 years since my last suicide attempt, it is still very much present in my life these days. Thankfully, I got saved and found on time. If you’d have told me then what I know now, I wouldn’t have believed you. […]

25. It’s #TimeToTalk (about academic anxiety).

Today is the first Thursday of February, not only known as Groundhog Day but also as Time To Talk Day. I started writing this article at Uni earlier, but finishing it now on the blog. If I say “I’m fine” I’m lying. Especially if nothing else follows that sentence or I start random small talk. […]
