I am going through something at the moment. Truth be told, I always am, as is everyone else in the world, and those of you reading. Whether it's normality, or the depths of despair, or exam stress, or money troubles (the list is endless), part of accepting life's phases is part of healing. I am…

year abroad :: to lose, to find

If things couldn’t get any more infuriating here in Libourne, I woke up on Friday morning with five mosquito bites. I went to bed knowing full-well that one was flying about my room, but it of course did not want to be caught. So I left it, and hid under my duvet (which isn’t really…

year abroad :: the glory of fall

Today I am totally feeling Autumn and all things Halloween. I am in no way party to celebrating evil spirits etcetera etcetera but I love a good spooky bash. The release of Stranger Things 2 is only aiding the spooky feels, and the current burn-out stage means a good binge in bed (with a sick…

At the moment this feeling is heightened by anxiety as I'm stressing over sorting things to move away to France. So far, I'm doing okay handling…

love :: the greatest

One past experience has chance my outlook on love forever. I can't really say I was in love but who knows. Love is powerful and overcomes you, and makes you blind. You don't see how someone is crippling you until after a relationship ends."Your intelligence intimidates me" is a line from a guy that I will never…
