The Sunshine Blogger Award

Is this a tag? I'm not sure. In any case... Well. I was nominated for the 'Sunshine Blogger Award', which is an award/tag which is circulated to bloggers who are considered to be a ray of sunshine. I have no idea how I'm here in the mix, then, considering that I'm such a grumpy bit-… Continue reading The Sunshine Blogger Award

My Experience of Applying For Oxford University: The Decision

A disclaimer: this is not a guide on how to apply for Oxbridge. Hell, I don't even know how to apply to Oxbridge, I'm still trying to figure it out. If you'd like to hear a little more about the process, rather than just reading my prose about it, then feel free to leave a… Continue reading My Experience of Applying For Oxford University: The Decision

Feminist Feelings: Body Positivity

I write my best work in the wee hours of the morning, which doesn’t bode well for my time in sixth form, but you have to suffer for your hobbies. I’ve been reading ‘Girl Up’ by Laura Bates (which is an excellent feminist work, I really recommend it.

That Green Gentleman

I've had something on my mind recently, a weight I just can't shake, like a snake that's sunk its fangs into my spine. Envy. Jealousy. Subtly different words that apply to every person in the world. I fall foul of them more than I should, to the extent where it just makes me look like… Continue reading That Green Gentleman

Fifteen-Year-Old Logic

(Disclaimer: this story is not based on personal experience) When I was fifteen, I decided that I wasn’t straight. Just like that, lying in bed, staring up the ceiling, headphones covering my ears like pop punk ear muffs that were trying too hard to be edgy and cool with their sellotaped together, scene grunge look.… Continue reading Fifteen-Year-Old Logic

Empathitication

Yes, that is a word that I just made up. I just Googled it, to check if it was a certified Oxford English Dictionary definition, but nothing came up. This proves that I am creative and willing to put my entire (fictional) writing career on the line for one, tiny, little made up word. Empathetication… Continue reading Empathitication

Overthink

16:32 There's something slightly weird with a school in the late afternoon, everything's very isolated and desolate, and way too clean and tidy for tables with are normally laden with pieces of paper and books about biology. There's also only the minimalist level of chatter, with maybe only a few discussions going on between the… Continue reading Overthink

Reminiscent Of A Different Time

I saw my old best friend today. We were close from when we were three until when we were nine, and then slowly drifted into the space of 'just a friend' and then into 'just a nothing'. I moved schools, then I moved towns, and then everything didn't fit anymore. But I saw her again… Continue reading Reminiscent Of A Different Time
