Admitting Defeat, or Taking Control?

*puts on glasses to look more serious* The past week has been a weird one, admittedly. It’s almost 8 months since I stopped getting CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) for OCD, and to be honest, life’s been pretty good. Yes, my OCD is still there, but it became small, and manageable.

Aout, 2016

Oh hey there gorgeous Internet People! Happy September! Today’s post is my monthly update of life i.e. what nonsense have I been up to in the past four weeks.

Hello Internet Peoples! How goes it? Well I hope! I know that some of you out there will be getting ready to move away for your Year Abroad, and so for the next few weeks, once a week, I’m going to do a YA themed blog post, covering a different aspect of moving away and…

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fun triplet to say or type, but it’s also SO important to actually be these things! Therefore, my lovely readers, I have decided…
