My Goals For 2021

I've asked a few people what their plans, goals or resolutions for 2021 are. The resounding response seems to be along the lines of "there's no point making goals, this year has proven that." Whilst I agree that 2020 has completely dog-eared most people's goals and plans, it doesn't mean there has been a complete…

Looking Back on my 2020

It goes without saying, this year has been a real real mess of a year. There's no need for a lengthy paragraph highlighting the semantics of the cursed year. However, I have always chosen to use the final weeks of December to reflect on the last year, and 2020 certainly deserves that reflection. Let me…

Everything I am Angry About

It's been a hot minute since I've logged into WordPress and written a blog post. I think that boils down to two reasons.

It’s hard to notice this happening in its infancy, but over time I’ve learned to understand when a negative cycle is forming, and this makes it easier to break the…

My Story – Part 1

It seems a little odd for me to write an introductory post like this, about 2 years into having my blog. However, my full story is something I have never really felt comfortable with sharing, and it is only now that I want to share some of the greater details of my life. I sometimes…

My 2020 goals – 6 month review

On December 26th 2019, I published this blog post filled with my goals and ambitions for the following year. Exactly six months later, I've decided to revisit this blogpost and review my progress in achieving these goals. However, before getting into this blogpost, I'd like to firstly just address where I am within myself whilst…
