To most, working from your living room seems like the dream. The possibility of starting the working day a little later due to no commute, the idea of sitting on your sofa with a film playing in the background and the comfort of wearing tracksuit bottoms and a hoodie rather than work attire. But let me tell you right now, on the days when you do actually have to sit at your computer all day working from home, you can feel incredibly sad, tired and even depressed. Why? Because working from home can be very lonely. Continue reading “Is Working From Home The Dream?”

Living Together With The Boyfriend For The First Time

Living Together With The Boyfriend For The First Time

If you’ve been following my online journey for the past 5 years then you’ll know that I’ve only been in one serious relationship. Ryan, he’s the one I met on Tinder, the boy I fell completely in love with and the one I bought a house with. To some this may seem a little extreme, especially once you learn that we’ve only been with each other for about 2 years but when I knew, I knew – It was as simple as that.

After spending weeks trying to work out if Ryan was a real person or not – I mean who doesn’t have any form of social media these days? We finally went on a date, and after our first meal together we practically saw each other every evening from then on. We never did the whole playing it cool thing, we didn’t waste months trying to work out where we were in the relationship, we just started it by telling each other the truth, and I think that’s probably why we have such a trusting relationship now.

We all know one person who doesn’t like to stand out, in fact if we are being honest here we probably all know at least three people. I’m not just referring to fashion here, I’m talking about that person at work who talks quietly so they can’t be heard or the pupil at school who always sits at the back with their hood up. And although some people naturally choose to hide within or behind the crowd, some do not and that Ladies and Gentleman is the topic of todays post.

My Sisters Best Birthday Present

You all know my sister Amelia, well she’s only gone and turned 21 hasn’t she?! Now, I’m not going to talk for everyone, but personally turning 21 was quite scary for me. The idea of being an “official adult” was a huge weight that I didn’t really want to take on – still to this day I don’t really know what that weight even was, but it felt like I was being forced to live a time in my life that I didn’t feel ready for. Looking back this all sounds ridiculous, because fast forward a year and I bought a house with my boyfriend – pretty adult I’d say, but still.
