Thought I try to “reboot” my things posts because it’s a nice way for me to share things I’ve found or discovered online recently, so without further ado!
Mental health shouldn’t be stigmatised or taboo but there are still people that believe that it’s something that shouldn’t be talked about or shared, I hope that by sharing my own story and experiences that I can help contribute in some way to eliminating the stigmas.
It’s been 6 months since the powers that behind Tumblr decided to blanket ban adult content from their site
This blog post was written on so many different days and over a course of a couple of months and I didn’t just want to just delete it so I thought I’d try to make it into something…not sure what that something is but I want to get it out of my drafts and into the world…so….enjoy?!
I haven’t blogged, vlogged or podcasted in fucking ages and I’ve almost been avoiding doing so…
I want to take this opportunity to share all of my online and social media links because I’m fairly active all over and want to make sure you guys can follow me in different places.
So already pretty much my whole Tumblr is flagged as explicit and will be removed or made private from the 17th December – I’m trying to think of the positives […]
So after this Wednesday, I will have 10 days off.
At this point in my life I’m in flux
The first thing he told me was “I have some bad news for you”
Writing about starting my new job, putting more kindness into the world and a bunch of other things
It’s nice to be able to infect others with unsuspected joviality
I’ve not composed a post on here for a while and I’m not quite sure how to kickoff but I have this real sense of being overdue
So today I received an invitation to a school reunion and in the past my initial reaction would’ve been to decline the invite immediately and get on with my life but this time I actually decided to confirm my attendance.
I decided to try to work out how much money I spend every year to have a creative platform.
Don’t you hate it when you just can’t get to sleep?
I started writing a blog post on Monday and it became a weird multi-day post, not my original plan but I did state that I didn’t know what direction it was going to go in!
2017 has been a big year for me, at the beginning of the year I challenged myself to come out of my comfort zone as much possible and I think I actually did so…
I used to tweet a lot!
I thought I’d use the time I have spare whilst travelling to London to blog a little 😊
It’s Friday, so that means it’s time for some #things
In 7 days time I will be moving house and so today I spent a few hours doing some life admin
Almost two years since I last posted a “Things” post, mainly because I forgot I used to do them!
This morning I thought the first thing I’d do before I got out of bed and to get ready for work would be to write a blog.
What if I fail?
I was going to try to post a blog post daily and obviously that’s not happened but I still want to post as regularly as I can going forward so allow me to recap on the last week or so.
I’ve been playing a fair amount of C&C over the last couple of days
Just an observation really but have any of you experienced this?
Monday, a new week begins.
This weekend has been weirdly empty.
I’ve noticed that I’m listening to iamamiwhoami a lot again recently.
This week has been exhausting
I’m just experimenting with ideas!
I actually really like it when it rains.
I need to make sure I take my own advice more often
Both times I’ve been abroad, I come home feeling like I want to travel somewhere again
Today we fly back to the UK.
Amsterdam Pride was incredible!
I write this blog whilst on the late night tram from Amsterdam to Amstelveen.
Today was a good day.
Not a particularly interesting blog today but I wanted to make sure I kept up with the daily posts this month.
So I’m going to attempt to blog every day in August…
For the past month and a bit I’ve been feeling a lot less like myself
I thought I’d write another free form blog today.
I remember back in the day when I used to blog whilst I was in a situation that was boring me shitless, such as being stuck on a bus in […]
I thought it was time to update you on what been going on in my world recently and im not entirely sure where to begin
Last weekend I took a trip to London for the evening to have a night out at XXL and it was such an incredible weekend.
So 5 days after I was meant to have my iPhone I got an update on when I can expect my iPhone to actually materialise…
So my email said to go to the Vodafone store on Friday to pick up my new phone…yeah, they don’t have it – WTF?!
It’s important to me to document or at least capture when I have moments like this
I’ve been wanting to write a post like this for a while
My dream last night was rather odd.
The wonderful Carl has been writing his most recent blogs in the following style and I like it so much I thought I’d do the same because it’s a great […]
Last Saturday was one of the best days of my life so far. I’m going to recall the whole experience in a diary style way of writing!
I don’t want to be British anymore
With everything that’s going on in the world, you’d think that people might be less judgemental
I’ve taken a break from social media and my phone this evening. I’m finding everything that’s happening in the world right now so overwhelming and I need some disconnection and a little time to collect my thoughts.
For those that know me, you’ll know me as a pretty social person
So because I’ve not really seen an improvement in my ankle I thought it was best to seek the advice of my doctor, even though the prospect of having to […]
Not being able to do much due to an injured ankle is frustrating as fuck
So on Tuesday I was cycling to work and ended up skidding on something and then fell off of my bike
The Spare Room, a room to escape from things.
In 150 days time I will finally be completely debt free, something I truly cannot wait for.
I’m not someone who usually blocks people on social media but recently I’ve had to block several people due to stuff they’ve done or said.
When you haven’t written a blog for a while it can sometimes be a little harder to start writing a post but I thought I’d just go for it and […]
It’s interesting yet frustrating to know that the actions of one or two people can really get under your skin.
If there’s one thing that I am really passionate about, it’s the empowerment of other people.
Only a quickie but I have to share this thing!
I’m sat here by my window as the 70-80 mph winds make my windows rattle, the trees outside are taking a battering and the noises of the gusts are pretty […]
Time for a few more things…
Yesterday I was referred to as DADDY on one of apps I use and at first I was a little amused because this was the first time I’d ever been called it – and then […]
The horrendous events in France are abhorrent and saddening, lives were lost and changed forever, such evil in the world.
Today is Children in Need day, a day that people use to dress up, sit in baths of beans, do sponsored silences and so on to raise money for Children […]
Blogging is something I’ve done since 2004 and I love doing it and as some of you may have noticed I’m blogging on a much more regular basis, it’s nice […]
The last few days I’ve been having really weird dreams, today’s was the weirdest one yet!
A year ago I started working at my current job, I didn’t know what to expect or if I was going to be any good at the job or if […]
Trying to make THINGS a more regular thing now, so it’s time for me to share a few….THINGS!
I was planning on doing something slightly different for but seeing as our broadband internet isn’t working I thought I’d just turn this into a bit of a rant.
I woke up this morning and was scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed and then I went into the “Friends” bit and then looked at contacts to see if any of […]
Yesterday was a good day. This is going to be a “what I did” type post, nothing exciting, unless I lie and make a version so unbelievable that you all think […]
You find it with the majority of people online who when either looking for a partner or a hookup, they’ll be fairly rigid with what type of person they are […]
So for those of you that aren’t aware (you will be by the time you’ve read this blog post!), Tom and I are in an open relationship and have been for […]
It’s important to keep document of your life, whether it’s in the form of a journal, a blog or some other medium
It’s time to share a couple of things (for the first time since APRIL!)
The other night (Wednesday) I got to reconnect with a person who I thought I’d lost because my own stupid ways of dealing with hard times in my life.
So I tried to bridge that gap with a friend
Don’t be alarmed if you visit this blog and things look a little unpolished
I don’t know why but I was having a look on my Amazon account earlier and found that it keeps a record of literally everything you’ve ever bought, so I […]
After not eating bread 🍞 for many weeks and benefiting from not doing so in quite a few ways, I ate some yesterday evening – I will not sugar the […]
One thing that annoys me about myself is that sometimes I completely lose track of the time since I last spoke to friends until that time becomes to big to just say “Hi!”
A lot of people when venturing on a new diet or healthy routine decide to share it with the world on social media, maybe there’s an accountability aspect to doing […]
I don’t think there’s anything more frustrating and painful as backache, ok maybe toothache but backache is up there.
Today was election day here in the UK, the polling stations will have just closed and the votes will be counted overnight and usually by the morning we will have […]
We woke up pretty early today, showered and made our way downstairs to have breakfast, this cost us £20 for two, now I only mention the price of the breakfast […]
We’d decided that we were going to go to the Cereal Killer Cafe for breakfast this morning, you might of heard of it, but for those that haven’t it’s a […]
As I write this I’m currently sat in first class on a train to London for mine and Tom’s 6th anniversary, I’ve never traveled in first class before and I […]
For years I’ve either used the official WordPress app to post blogs to my site or I’ve just logged on via my computer and done so, today I’m trying out […]
It’s time to share some things again!
Another week has just gone and it’s time again to share with you some things I’ve found!
I wanted to make a (probably) weekly post on my blog about things that I’ve come across, learn or discovered, I think it will be fun and also shares with you […]
It’s probably 1:40pm, I say probably because I don’t know. Why don’t I know? I don’t have a watch, I check the time on my phone, so why don’t I […]
So I’ve been in my new job now for just over 4 months and I really enjoy it, in December I was made staff member of the month and yesterday […]
It was Valentine’s Day yesterday and it was really nice to spend the day with my OH.
As a long time wrestling fan and supporter of all things WWE, I can’t help but feel a little disappointed at how the Royal Rumble pay-per-view went from strength to […]
It’s therapeutic to take stock of your life and look back and reflect on who you used to be and who you are now, above shows the evolution of me, […]
So I thought that as I was about to start my new job that I would treat myself to an upgrade from my iPad mini (1st Generation) to an iPad […]
I hate this feeling, I feel fucking awful.
Many people don’t talk about it but I feel it’s important to talk about mental health, so here I go.
I don’t really know what to start writing but I’m hoping that I’ll make some kind of sense at the end.
So whilst making my way home from work, this happened…
I don’t think that there is a worse feeling than having to go back to work after a 2 week holiday.
Yesterday my boyfriend Tom and I decided to go back to the coast and spend the day at the beach, we woke up nice and early at 5am to leave […]
I just had my 30th birthday (14 July) and my boyfriend booked a perfect weekend away in Southwold which is a beautiful and peaceful coastal town on the Norfolk coast.
As I spend a large amount of my time on buses, I thought I would blog whilst on my way home.
I’m certain that I’m going to be the minority here but I hate hot weather!
I’ve been putting off writing a blog for a while, for numerous reasons but I find that once I start putting fingers to keys then the release is there and […]
Everybody seems to be doing those really annoying MySpace style quizzes nowadays, there was a reason MySpace died…
I can’t believe that come July I shall be turning 30, I remember leaving school thinking that 2014 was so far away and that being 30 would be so old […]
I’m going to start off writing this blog post without a title, a title means I’d have to stick to a subject or path and I feel that this is […]
You know what? I love being a cub – fuck society thinking that skinny is desirable – I’m a big guy (in many ways) and I love the fact that […]
A lot of people think that taking about mental health and mental health problems is a taboo thing
It’s been a while since I last made a simple blog and I just felt the need to do one today
This is probably not going to be one of those blogs that I do that doesn’t interest anyone but I just want to get a few things out of my […]
Today I decided to get on the scales, I knew it wasn’t going to be pleasant
From an early age I have always been fascinated in time travel
If you follow me on any form if social media then you’ve probably seen updates from me in the last week in which I keep talking about my head.
I can’t explain why I’m feeling the way I’m feeling at the moment but I can at least try and tell you how.
Hello! I wanted to write a blog, I have no idea what to write about so I’m just going to type and let my brain flow through my hands and […]
I think everyone should have a BFF (Best Friend Forever), I do and I cannot imagine a world without her in it!
I’m so immature sometimes!! Peerless Gay claims 100m victory Gay is the leading 100m runner this season with a time of 9.84 seconds World number one Tyson Gay powered to […]
