Getting Back to the Fit and Healthy…

Its been four months since I left Edinburgh and moved back home, having packed in my postgraduate research and left the stress and strain of a job I didn't want or enjoy behind me. The six months I was in Edinburgh I suffered a lot from anxiety and a bit of depression too, and because… Continue reading Getting Back to the Fit and Healthy…

Why I will never shut up about Sons of an Illustrious Father’s ‘U.S.Gay’.

U.S.Gay is the queer anthem I needed and, at this point, quite frankly deserve. In Sons' interview with i-D Lilah talks about how this song was born out of the "desire to go into a self-protective cocoon of invisibility" and yet "simultaneously made me want to be more visibly queer, more defiant than ever." And that… Continue reading Why I will never shut up about Sons of an Illustrious Father’s ‘U.S.Gay’.

A Vacation of Sorts -Art Galleries and Book Shops

Its official, the paperwork has been signed and relevant departments notified. I have officially withdrawn from my PhD program and am no-longer a student. Woohoo! So, as my move-out date isn't for another couple of weeks yet, I am taking advantage of these last couple of weeks in this lovely city of Edinburgh and playing… Continue reading A Vacation of Sorts -Art Galleries and Book Shops

To be quite frank with you I have no idea why i'm writing this post, January has been a shit show of shittiness both globally and personally.

The Week of Speaking Out- a.k.a Politics went F’ing mad.

27th January. Holocaust Memorial Day. A day dedicated to the remembrance of  victims of The Holocaust under Nazi Persecution, a date chosen to coincide with the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. Its hard to believe that it wasn't intentional then, for it to be the day that the Tr*mp administration chose it to roll… Continue reading The Week of Speaking Out- a.k.a Politics went F’ing mad.

The Week of Self Care Part II – aka Music and Dancing

Music and dancing are something I love and adore and I honestly don't know where I would be without them. Therefore it felt wrong just writing this in at the end of the last post I did. (So apologies for the extra notification.) During the 'week-that-was-by-most-accounts-absolutely-dreadful' I happened to come across a band, that, well… Continue reading The Week of Self Care Part II – aka Music and Dancing

The Week of Self Care Part I – aka Retail Therapy & Looking Cute

The last few days have personally been, heck yeah, on point. Its like embracing that my life is going downhill (overdramatic much) has lifted something from my shoulders. Of course, I lie, a lot, but I've been treating myself over the last few days - maybe more than I should - so things aren't as… Continue reading The Week of Self Care Part I – aka Retail Therapy & Looking Cute

The Week of Blue Monday ft. Chocolate, La La Land and the Weekly Challenge.

And so begins the second week of my return to university and work. On what I discovered was aptly named 'Blue Monday' i.e the most depressing Monday of the year, I have to agree with the maths here. For the week hasn't been off to the best of starts. But before I get into that… Continue reading The Week of Blue Monday ft. Chocolate, La La Land and the Weekly Challenge.
