Today is World Mental Health Day and I thought I’d share this UPDATED (10th October 2020) version of my mental health journey and where I am with everything.
I’ve been sat here typing and erasing what I’ve written because I don’t really know why I’m writing anything at all
This blog was originally posted on 29.6.2010 on my old blog, I’m now reposting it here, 10 years after I originally wrote it.
Lockdown is an interesting thing to live through
I’ve been advised to self-isolate for 14 days and today was the first day of this self-imposed quarantine.
I’ve found it harder than normal to just sit and type out (or speak out) what’s been going on in my life recently because it’s all been a little crazy, in good ways and in some really sad ways too.
I was going to kick off 2020 with a blog post covering things that I’ve done in the last decade but then I realised that looking back can be fun but I kind of want to start 2020 by looking forward rather than in some kind of self-reflecting retrospective.
It’s the Halloween season and around this time of year everything gets a little bit spooky
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!
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 of this change but censorship like this feels weird, I think we all hoped that Tumblr would be a place for expression that didn’t belong …
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!
