No Holiday For Me.

It may seem a little odd that I am going to write the following, but really, sometimes things need to be jotted down so then they can just be normalised. I posted this morning on my instagram, about how this year, JK and I weren’t taking a holiday, because we have a wedding to pay…

Blocked.

You may have seen or heard it by now, but there is an account on twitter going around blocking members of the LGBTQIA+ community, even before ever interacting with them. I’m not going to name the account, I’m not going to give them that exposure, but you should know if you are even a casual…

Check On Your Fat Mates.

It’s warm. It’s more than warm. It’s hot. The UK is currently experiencing a heatwave, and even though the Sun isn’t always shining, those pesky clouds are trapping in all the heat to what feels like unbearable levels. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t like being cold either, but a nice middle ground is…

Don’t Look Back In Anger.

There’s one thing that I do, that some people find weird. Each time I upgrade my phone, I bring along all the photos from my old phone to my new one. That means that I have photos spanning back to around 2011 until present day. I am a nostalgic person, I like to look back…

I Can Be Mad (Pt II.)

Welcome to the second half of this two part post this Pride month. This post explores a different issue but a real issue nonetheless, and I again, risk angering people for writing it, but I also don’t really care because…I’m mad, you can be mad too, come scream at me, we good because I am…

I Can Be Mad (Pt. I)

It’s Pride Month. I mean, not for my actual city, but it’s the start of the main bulk of Pride events, but also the month of June marks the anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising as well as other key events in Queer history. At the moment, it honestly seems that you can’t escape a story…

Why I’m Going On A Diet.

There’s one thing to always remember about me: my body positive attitude isn’t confined to the ideas of being fat. I believe that no matter what your body is, you should be positive about it, and you should also not try and tear other people down for theirs. The fact of the matter is, you…

Why TF Is This Sponsored?

Then the notification came. Someone had commented “why tf is this sponsored?” – I saw it, and I had to decide what to do. The profile who posted it was private, but their profile image was a half naked, muscly body. Was it a troll? Was it a bot? Or was it a real person? I just didn’t know, and I could either choose to respond and invite negativity to the post, or I could just delete the comment.

Catharsis.

On Saturday 27th April 2019, I cried. I felt this emotion build up inside of me and then I just let it all out. I don’t often cry, I don’t often show emotion, but luckily I was alone. The tears weren’t sad, nor were they particularly hoppy, they were just tears of release. A release…

The Big Reveal.

Okay, so at the start of the year, I said that this year was going to be one of investments and in my first post of 2019 I discussed what that meant (you can read it here). Within that post, I revealed my plans for releasing a podcast, and recently, I wrote about the gratitude…
