Writer’s Block Sucks – & This Is How I Deal With It

Writer’s block can be really shit – especially when your ultimate escape route is writing. My blog is easily one of the most enjoyable things in my life – it is definitely one of the things I care about the most. The complete and utter freedom of having total control of the content, the vision and the future is something I thrive of and somewhere I go to to escape. Having the words unable to come is my idea of a literal hell.

I had about three posts to write for the next couple of weeks. With an essay deadline prancing around my shoulder and another hangover day (swear I’m not an alcoholic, just a student who has partied too much recently), it was the perfect day to smash out some blog posts.

Cheers To The Teenage Years

I am officially a twenty-something. Well barely, I’m just in, but I can finally connect with a huge number of people online who like to categorise themselves in this term – along with not knowing what the fuck you are supposed to be doing.

Whilst I was 19 I had no clue what I was doing but now I’m a twenty-something and I don’t know what I’m doing. Yay! I feel like turning twenty has been coming a long time – the last of my friends to hit the big two-oh and most of my friends are now turned/turning 21 – but I do feel a bit sad to be leaving the teenage years behind.

A Little Note To My Friends

I kind of hate Valentine’s Day. Maybe that’s because I don’t have ‘someone special’ to share it with but it just isn’t for me. One thing I can get behind is telling someone that you love them/care about them/that they make a difference in your life. We have a mother’s day, father’s day and bloody Valentine’s day for your significant other but where is friends day?

So this is for you guys, an ode to the people who inspire, shape me, laugh with me, cry with me and get really bloody drunk with me. I guess I want to start by saying thank you, thank you for being my friend and thank you for being a part of my life.

A 2018 Resolution

Big surprise, I’ve got a resolution for 2018. So original and ahead of the game over here. I have one big resolution that is kind of an umbrella resolution. I’ve been trying to do this to varying degrees (with often limited success) for years, literally since I was about 13 or something.

In 2018 I want to be healthier. That’s my resolution. To really overhaul and change my quite ~ unhealthy ~ lifestyle because to be honest, it is sometimes quite appalling and the only person who can change that is me.

I have no exercise regime despite the fact I own a gym membership (lolz), some days I don’t eat any fruit or veg, I don’t think I’ve hit my five-a-day or whatever the quota is now in months, I never drink enough water, I drink too much Diet Coke and have an unhealthy addiction to cookies and chocolate buttons.

Grap A Cuppa And We’ll Have A Catch Up Shall We?

And breathe.

Well, that was quick? I can’t believe the semester is almost over. Tomorrow I’ll be submitting my final piece of coursework and heading home to the Scottish Borders for a good few weeks of relaxation and chilling the eff out.

I thought I’d have a little catch up with you all because the end of the semester really feels like the end of a small era. And a busy era it has been. But it also seems like I have done absolutely nothing at all for the last 12 weeks?
