faith :: not

*All views are my own. I’m also not a politics student nor a political expert, nor claim to ever side with a sole politician or political party.*  A big part of political rhetoric, and emotion-building rhetoric of late has been the use of: “We are not ______” When Manchester was bombed on the 22nd May […]

faith :: wonder

I couldn’t entitle this blog post in any other way than “wonder”. If you’re a Christian and into worship music, notably Hillsong, and you haven’t yet heard ‘Wonder’ Hillsong United’s new album, you need to get on it. My lovely friend Sophie introduced me to it on the way home from !Audacious Church in Manchester […]

So after a packed morning at Kings, Sophie dropped a beautiful bombshell… We’re having roast dinner at mine. Oh yes. I hadn’t had a roast dinner in SO long so I was so excited. And it was so good, and lovely to meet Sophie’s parents too, who are equally as bubbly and hilarious as Sophie. […]

faith :: church hop pt.1

It was about a month ago that my friend Sophie and I came up with the idea of having a 'Church Hop' Sunday. Then when we actually put our plan into action, we realised it was more of a 'Church Swap' than a 'Church Hop', since we were going to my church in the morning […]

life :: return

So I have now officially moved back home for summer after a tremendously stressful yet enjoyable second year.  This year has tested me so much, but my faith is even stronger, new friendships have been made, and I’m happier than I’ve ever been.  It’s going to be a stressful summer with SO much to get […]

I dreaded waking up today to the 10am release of second year results. It didn’t help that I woke up 45 minutes early – I had to fill that time with something other than crippling anxiety. When 10am came, my first demonic thought came: “Why are you even bothering at university Anna”; the second, “You’re […]

It’s quite hard sometimes to be a “milennial” (despite being born in the nineties) and a Christian. It’s challenging. Although as a society, we’re a lot more accepting, we’re also a lot more defensive yet on the attack at the same time. So, adding Christianity to this battle already can make muddling through the early years […]

life :: new beginnings

You could say that with finishing second year, life has slowed down. But in no way is that a reality. Despite summer beginning, and my 20th birthday passing (the Friday just gone Thursday eek!), I still find myself busy. But not “busy” busy, you know that kind of busy when you think you’re busy but […]

life :: friendships

Since I’ve covered dating more than once, and a host of other topics, I thought why not discuss an important part of growing up: friendships.  I’m not going to focusing on ‘making’ friends, but rather friendships and what they mean to me, and what they could/should mean to you.  THEY ARE NOT EASY Friendships go […]

love :: someone 

This post is being written at a time when I know there’s people in my world dealing with stuff. I hope my reflection on this topic will help someone and begin a healing process.  HEARTBREAK When heartbreak happens, it’s like being gutted with a knife like a fish. But, the thing to remember is you’re […]
