I write to express the thoughts that most people have but don’t talk about. I write to try to find meaning in the things we all feel and struggle with. And I hope that some of it helps you.

I am a 22 year old living in the north of England. I like to write about mental health, university, and feelings. I am currently spending the year working and writing before going back to uni next September.

I am not really sure who I am. I am the girl who fell in love with science and who fell in love with writing. I am the girl who sprained her wrist when she was 8 years old and who is learning to live with a broken brain at 22. I am the girl who longs to visit new places but who is terrified of change. I am the girl who loves to run and who loves to curl up with a good book. I am a conundrum and I am excited to figure out who I actually am.

Here are some recent posts from my favourite two topics to write about –

Mental Health
World Mental Health Day 2017
Why I’m Not Watching To The Bone

Life is Scary
Being Lonely Vs Being Alone
