‘New Year, New Me’ – the mantra of every January since the birth of the calender.

However, candles can cost anywhere… Continue reading DIY: Festive Candles

I have previously talked about the 15 practical things to do to get out of your quarter life crisis, but as we all know, it is not that simple. Motivation and confidence are crucial when trying to steer your life into any sort of direction. Unfortunately, both have a tendency of slipping away from us as unemployment and fear dwells. These two playlists (curated by moi) will let you hide from the world, as well as push you on.
There are two main emotions during a quarter-life crisis: paralysing fear, and dull apathy.
This playlist will let you wallow in self-pity before trying to cheer you up and give you enough confidence to start looking at those job listings.
Once you’ve searched through bookmarking possible jobs, it can be easy to put off the mountainous task of actually researching and applying for the positions. This playlist is full of classic, high momentum songs to not only keep you going but also keep you in good spirits.
A quarter life crisis is when a 20-something year old realises that they have literally no idea what they are going to do for the rest of their lives. It turns out no one cares about your degree, and unless you have 30-years of work experience, or are willing / available to work for free, you kind of freeze. So here are 15 practical things to … Continue reading 15 things to do to get out of your quarter life crisis!

In the British culture, we tend put a lot of emphasis on specialisation. At the age of 13/14, we pick four additional subjects to study alongside our core, compulsory subjects. At 16, we move upper education, where we narrow down our education again, and with few exceptions, most teenagers choose around 4 subjects which we study exclusively for 2 years, and then some move up to university. … Continue reading We’re becoming Creativity Zombies
Now, I don’t consider myself a blogger. Sure, I have a blog and I try (and fail) to update it as regularly as I can, but I don’t spend days trying to think of something to say, or set myself a weekly deadline to have regular updates or anything like that. And there is a very simple reason (bar my own laziness); I only update my … Continue reading The joys of silence #blogging
