  • Today I Sat In A Room Of Americans And Watched Them All Cry

    November 9, 2016

    Today I sat in a room of Americans and watched them all cry. There’s no need to ask why; we know why. Today I watched my friends cry as they dealt with the prospect that their country, as of today, is not a country they know. It is not a country they are proud of, and…

  • Why ‘Before the Flood’ Terrified Me…

    November 6, 2016

    Who could forget Leonardo Di Caprio’s Oscar acceptance speech last year? He waited all these years to receive the recognition that he rightly deserved, and he used his speech time to warn viewers about the dangers of Global Warming.

  • Jealous? Me? Never! 

    October 24, 2016

    When you’re far from home and everyone you know is moving on in their lives some way, it’s easy to feel like you’re getting left behind.

    October 10, 2016

    1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in any given year. That means that nobody is immune, from year to year, from experiencing mental health issues.

  • My Favourite Blogs At The Moment

    October 6, 2016

    I’ve enjoyed blogging as a hobby for a good several years now, and it’s wonderful to see how blogging has become such a well respected social platform.

  • I Wish I Was Cool Enough To Have Pink Hair

    August 1, 2016

    I have a confession to make… I have an addiction. An addiction that consumes my thoughts, fills my head with crazy notions, and makes me excited and want to throw up at the same time. This addiction is to hair-style accounts on Instagram. As I sit here in a salon chair, letting my   usual…
