A girl at work mentioned that it looked like I was really looking after myself now that university had finished. Initially I was going to write this post about how that was a load of shit, and that I'm falling apart on the inside, but the outside looks Insta worthy. But this isn't fully true. … Continue reading Looking after Me.
I'm totally guilty of this, and I doubt your immune either. Comparing yourself to others. Sometimes this is a good thing, and it can provide that positive motivation, or that extra little kick up the butt you needed, however most of the time it can get quite toxic. When you see someone, nine times out … Continue reading Let’s Talk Facades
So. I'm not sure many of you will care, so take this more as a progress log rather than something interesting to read. I started my over-bite correction process today. I'm kinda shitting myself. So what's going to happen is that over a year and a bit, the orthodontist will gradually move my teeth around. … Continue reading It has Begun.
I think I freaked my best friend out the other day. I meet up with her, but before typical hello's, I had to ask where the nearest toilet was. I was shaky and felt like I was going to be sick (not sure which end). She didn't ask questions, just lead me straight to where … Continue reading It’s Normal, But It’s Not.
unsplashNathan Dumlao I was making an english breakfast tea the other day and thought I'd try out the soy that I usually have with my chai teas. Turns out it's been a while since my last tea. The soy was a tad lumpy. Circumstances recently have lead me to using lactose free milk, soy milk … Continue reading Shitty Milk.
That new show on Netflix got me thinking, Altered Carbon. I'm not usually one to revert to year 12 english and think about the deep and meaningful side of television, but it hit a nerve. This whole idea of sleeves, and being able to buy an entire new body. It made me think about my … Continue reading The Skin You’re In.
Who the fuck has heard of hip dips? Mindlessly scrolling through social media the other day and this ad pops up, telling me to download this app that is going to show me 10 different exercises that can help me get rid of my hip dip.... WTF?! Looking at my own body, sure enough I … Continue reading Your Body is Yours
Lately I've been applying for jobs. This is apparently what you do, you get your piece of paper, and then look for someone who will pay you for having that. It's been messing with me a little. The whole feeling worthless thing because I'm not currently out there contributing to something bigger, but also getting … Continue reading Subconscious Little Shit
Since finishing uni last year, I have jumped into the pool of overqualified and under-experienced, underemployed graduates. I'm still not sure what to do with myself, and I'm questioning why I have to know the answer to this straight away. I wasn't one of those people who could do a degree for a specific job. … Continue reading To Apply, or Not to Apply
This is my first year out of uni, and I'm terrified. I loved uni. It was this safe bubble, still in the real world, but away from the real responsibilities. I had nothing to do the other day. No work, nothing to study, nothing to work on. It was the stuff of nightmares. I … Continue reading Permission to do Nothing.
