#34 Mental Health: the stigma

TW: Mental health Last month involved Mental Health Awareness Week, hosted by the Mental Health Foundation. Hundreds of thousands went online to increase the awareness, and I couldn’t help but feel a bit angry, after seeing some celebrities, microinfluencers and some friends on social media post about it. What annoyed me was how loosely andContinue reading “#34 Mental Health: the stigma”

#32 Google, did you know…?

Yep. The answer is yes. Because Google knows everything. During lockdown, I’ve been trying to listen to one podcast per day from Today In Focus, by The Guardian.

Starting off with just some fish in the pond, we’ve since graduated to: chickens, frogs borne (actually spelt frogsContinue reading “#26 Pets (and death, sorry)”

#25 That skirt ain’t cool, hun

Whilst we’re currently in lockdown, one activity to keep yourself busy might be some online shopping. Who doesn’t love a good retail therapy sesh? You might hop onto Pretty Little Thing or boohoo.com. You might come across a sexy, but sophisticated cropped white shirt – something you’ve been looking for, for yonks. You allow yourContinue reading “#25 That skirt ain’t cool, hun”
