You fought so hard to love yourself and found that love in other people. And then your self-love became intertwined with company; a give and take, you gave love and in doing so fell in love with yourself. Slowly. Excruciatingly slowly. It was uphill for the most part, but a rocky terrain nonetheless, and sometimes … Continue reading Note to self
Born an extrovert
I remember taking the Myers-Briggs type indicator test a few years ago (online, naturally) and it classified me as an INFP. This was when I was 14. I used to hate every inch of myself, and because of it, I repressed every desire I had to be surrounded by friends and to go outside and … Continue reading Born an extrovert
The end is nigh!
...well, the end of my exams anyway. No, that's not strictly true: the end of my exams brings with it the end of a great many other things. It's the official-official end of my high school career.

I think what sucks most is that the first proper response I got was a rejection letter because, for a mind as superstitious as mine, that means subsequent bad news-But just now, out of absolutely nowhere, a fun. song began playing on my computer. Trust … Continue reading Starting this off with a deep breath
I’m in a good place in my life
I truly am. It hits me, every so often, that there isn't much I'd rather be doing instead of what's happening right now. I don't have many regrets. I don't spend ages locking myself in my bedroom and sobbing about what a mess my life's become. I don't have a lot of things I want … Continue reading I’m in a good place in my life
