Insomnia, and the Great Debate….in my head.

It’s 12am. I’ve been tossing and turning for the last hour, trying to turn off my brain and fall into the dark abyss of sleep. My bones are aching from the cold stirring the throb of my athiritis, my eyes are heavy and yet awake, and my brain is contemplating getting up and getting someContinue reading “Insomnia, and the Great Debate….in my head.”

Update: Masters, PhD and Life

So, it’s been a very long time since my last post. I’ve completed my Masters and have just begun my second semester of the first year of my PhD.

Girl Up – Laura Bates, you’re my hero!

Laura Bates is a successful feminist who became well known for her website called The Everyday SexismContinue reading “Girl Up – Laura Bates, you’re my hero!”

First week of University….

I have been so busy it’s unreal. I’ve had reading to do in my spare time and any free time I do have I’m busy doing something to relax my brain.

Well, it’s official! I am officially playing for the Castleford Tigers Foundation Learning Difficulties Rugby team! So far, the training has been only one occasion and this Saturday we are going down to Blackpool to play against the other teams. I’m excited, but also nervous because I’ve only had one hour of training. So, I’veContinue reading “New Endeavour….”

Body Positivity and Self Love…A Journey.

It took me a very long time to think of myself more than what people were telling me. Since I was a little girl, I craved my father’s approval. I craved it so bad I took on board everything he said about me. I was “too fat”, “too sensitive”, “too simple”, nothing I did seemedContinue reading “Body Positivity and Self Love…A Journey.”
