Instagram versus reality and the things I’m reflecting on as I creep closer to 30

I’m going to be 30 in May! I’m on holiday sat in a bikini by the pool wallowing in self pity and the looming loss of my youth that will inevitably strike, when I realise that I need to change the way I think. Despite Instagram making me believe that I should be at a … Continue reading Instagram versus reality and the things I’m reflecting on as I creep closer to 30

You… what the actual…?!

Holy shit-balls. Someone gave Dan Humphrey a knife. Is this what happened to him after we all found out he was Gossip Girl?! Makes sense... For those of you who haven’t yet had chance to watch You, the ten-episode series on Netflix, y’all are late to the party, catch up. It’s essentially about a psychopath … Continue reading You… what the actual…?!

Blame it on the alcohol… not on the fact that I’m just not your version of ‘perfect’…

Boy, has my ego just been bruised... not that this experience is anything new mind you, but as is ever the case with this blog, I needed to share it with you. Yeah, I met a guy, and we are already at the ‘never mind’ part of the conversation. I of course, met him in … Continue reading Blame it on the alcohol… not on the fact that I’m just not your version of ‘perfect’…

Perspective

‘It has been a shit year’. I found myself uttering that sentence to a very good friend of mine over a drink last Friday night. A hastily spoken sentence, but one I’ve resolved to look back on and regret saying. It’s been a tough year, absolutely, but a shit one? Most definitely not... January to … Continue reading Perspective

A breakdown of the mind… Chapter 2: My 800 pound gorilla

Have you ever woken up with absolutely nothing in your head aside from fog, or dark grey cloud? It’s an odd thing to describe, but on that Saturday morning, the morning after that Friday spent working from home and blubbering in front of the painter, i woke up empty. I felt hollow. I thought of … Continue reading A breakdown of the mind… Chapter 2: My 800 pound gorilla

A Breakdown of the mind… or, rather, my own personal mental breakdown…

I’m Selina, I’m 28 years old, and about a month ago I had a mental breakdown... Oh yeah. Like full-force crazy-scale one day (really, I was working from home crying in front of my laptop, blubbering and trying to tell the painter - who is a village local, that I often see when I walk … Continue reading A Breakdown of the mind… or, rather, my own personal mental breakdown…

“A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money”.

I’ve been away for a while - from writing, I mean. I guess for a multitude of reasons, including having nothing of any value to say - and yes, my dating stories are of great value, humours and ever-so-slightly embarrassing... Last night, I quite by chance ran in to a friend of mine who, with … Continue reading “A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money”.

#MeToo, Weinstein, Feminism and #IDidThat

First of all, let me begin by saying no, I am not someone who needs to say that it has happened to #MeToo. It hasn’t. Part of what I am about to write will naturally cover the hashtag, the current noise around sexual assault and the all too negative perception and lack of respect of, … Continue reading #MeToo, Weinstein, Feminism and #IDidThat

“Be The One Who Never Stands Still” – Sure, Until I Burn Out By The Time I’m 30…

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) urged students within the Times Top 100 Graduate Employers annual guide, to ‘Be the one who never stands still’. A source of inspiration, and naturally something I’m sure we will see underneath countless Instagram images, including some of my own… However, is it wise to be advocating such intense pressures on millennials, who are … Continue reading “Be The One Who Never Stands Still” – Sure, Until I Burn Out By The Time I’m 30…
