Today I have a very personal post for all of you. It’s something very difficult to talk about for me, but I want to be open and fight the stigma around depression and other mental health issues, and hopefully help someone that needs to know they’re not alone.
So today, I’m going to talk to you about depression.
I know it’s been a while since you heard from me. I’ve been rubbish at blogging and honestly I feel a little guilty about it. Even though I have a good reason for it, I still feel like I’m failing you all. So I’m going to try and do better despite everything life is throwing at me because you are important to me. And this blog is as well. I’ll get into more detail about my absence in a later post, but for now, I wanted to celebrate Ace Week with you!
September was NOT a good month for me on any level. Okay, no, there were some highlights. But mostly it was a month filled with anxiety, frustration and stress. My vacation ended with a massive panic attack and a very uncomfortable atmosphere, my general frustration over where I’m at in life got to me BIG TIME, and chronic pain in my hip gave me a tonne of stress. So let’s break down the good and the bad in this September recap!
Gender used to be, at least for me, a very simple and straightforward thing. There were boys and there were girls, and I was the latter. But just like sexuality, gender, as it turns out, is a very broad spectrum that isn’t as simple as two options. There’s stuff in between. And it’s that stuff that has confused me for many, many years. But I never really let myself think about it because I was raised to believe there was nothing more than simply boy and girl. I was in relationships where I was forced into a stereotypical feminine role. So that became my reality. But as it turns out, it’s actually not. And just like my sexuality, I’m figuring it out while I go.
Welcome to the first edition of Let’s Write, in which I will talk all about my writerly updates. As the title suggests. Today I am going to talk to you guys about my project called Shatter This Starless Night. It’s a (new) adult contemporary romance and I am wholly in love with it so far. So let’s talk about it!
Sandhya Menon has done it again. She’s written yet another amazing and beautiful contemporary that completely and utterly stole my heart. Simply put, it was everything I needed and wanted it to be. Can I leave the review at that? No? Oh well, I tried.
Welcome to another new feature! In these posts I will recommend books based on other books/movies/tv-shows/… For this first edition, I decided to scour Netflix for shows I could recommend books for. It was surprisingly easy and so much fun to do. So let’s get to it, shall we?
