Where have I been?

As I write this I’m lying in the bath, typing on my phone praying I wont drop it. My muscles ache from a major walking session and I’ve got one eye on the clock as my Sainsbury’s delivery will be here soon. It’s been a while since my last post, I find when I have a break from my blog it’s hard to get back into the rhythm of things. At the weekend I went to Plymouth for my boyfriend’s graduation and the weather held out which is a first! You know that dissertation I’ve been moaning about for months… nearly the whole year, well, I got a distinction! Yay! All those tears, episodes of self doubt and worry were worth it. Funny to think this exact day a year ago was my graduation, a day of mixed feelings really… I hated my degree, the people on the course and I was combatting depression. A year on I now have a masters in Creative Writing and I feel like a new person, it’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel when all you experience is darkness for a while.

When I was younger I always wanted to be a writer, but my English teacher at GCSE made me feel useless. Saying I’d get a C at A level if I was lucky, now with an A* under my hat and an MA later I think we can safely say she was wrong. See that’s the thing, people in life will always have something to say and it will on occasion be negative. I’ve experienced this ten times more since I’ve worn makeup more frequently and started dying my hair. You just have to do you, and you’ll be happy.

Today was more of a waffle post, I guess baths make me contemplate. Maybe I should do them more often! I’ve been trying out a few new beauty products so there will be some reviews soon.

Have a good weekend! ❤️
