A creative block

It’s February. I’ve finally gotten myself into a good routine; I have a new job with consistent hours, I have my flat sorted, I make meal plans and budget plans. But for some reason, the main thing that doesn’t fit into this routine is blogging. I just can’t seem to sit down and make myself write. Dear god it’s frustrating! Even the posts you guys have been seeing recently were scheduled a while ago. I have a couple of theories on why, but really no ideas on how to fix it.   Continue reading “A creative block”

My YouTube Channel; what happened, and where to now?

Listen, I don’t mean to go on about it so much, but last year sucked, okay? And part of this was the people that I used to call friends finding my blog and YouTube channel (did a bit of sad writing on it here). Basically, they found it, and certain videos and lines from posts became hilarious jokes between them all. Weirdly enough, I wasn’t exactly a fan? Crazy, right? Anyway, I tend to take criticism like that to heart way too much, and so since then, I haven’t uploaded a single video. It took me a damn long time to even get back into blogging, and I love this thing. YouTube, though, I just don’t know if I can bring myself to start doing again. I know, I know, who cares about what other people think? Do what you love, for you! I know all of this, but I just can’t decide if it’s worth getting back into it.  Continue reading “My YouTube Channel; what happened, and where to now?”

Movies as an “experience”

I wouldn’t consider myself a film buff, by any means. I like a good movie, but more for the story than the cinematography or soundtrack. What I do love, though, is actually going to the cinema to see something, rather than streaming it at home. And when my friend asked how cinemas could possibly even exist these days, when streaming is so accessible, I decided to put these thoughts into words.  Continue reading “Movies as an “experience””

Living in halls at university; is it the right choice?

My first year of university was, well, not the best (read the saga here). For me, a huge part of that was the experience of living in halls, and not having any space from a toxic group of friends (including them not having space from me). And I’ve talked to people, without going in depth, about why I left that university, and so many people are completely unsurprised. Because halls suck, right? Living in a place with 50 people, sharing bathrooms, a kitchen, not ever being able to go to a place that’s completely quiet? I’ve been wanting to write this post for a while, but I wanted to make sure I was as un-biased as I could be. With that, let’s run through the pros and cons, based off my experience with it!

Going vegetarian // Dec 2017

Going vegetarian is something I’ve been thinking about doing for a long, long time. The issue is, I’ve always lived with my parents, and part of me doesn’t want to be overly difficult by cooking a separate meal every night. And with uni food, there was no way, I have no idea how those people managed it. Next year, though, I’ll be moving into a flat, and living with just my flatmates, meaning I’ll be in charge of cooking my own meals every night anyway. So, I think now is the time to become a vegetarian!  Continue reading “Going vegetarian // Dec 2017”

Soulmates

I was recently having a conversation with my friend about soulmates, which I believe in, as does her boyfriend, but she definitely does not. Then I talked to my family, and they said the same, and most of my friends were the same. So, I want to present some thoughts to you, and ask what you think about all of this

I think I understand soulmates differently to how most people do, with how it’s presented in the movies. I believe that there is just one person out there for everyone, and that the universe will push you in the right direction so that you meet them. Eg, my friend I had this conversation with is from England, her boyfriend is from India, but they met at work in New Zealand. Seems like a crazy coincidence, right? Assuming they were soulmates, though, that’d be the universe pushing them together. I definitely think you can fall in love more than once, but there’s one person out there that you’ll end up with forever, your “best love” for want of a better term, and that’s a set thing in the universe.  Continue reading “Soulmates”

Happiness; an unachievable goal

“Happiness,” as a concept, is something we all define very differently. I don’t need to explain that to you; we’ve all read Harry Potter, you know the Mirror of Erised. What I’ve recently realised, though, is that this Mirror of Erised type of idea (also known as the “white picket fence and red door” image of perfection) is something that’s not necessarily achievable. Not that happiness isn’t achievable, but it’s not something we should be looking for in this sort of way.
