When the start stops

In the midst of a pandemic I'm going to write. The last two weeks have been hectic. My first year of university finishing prematurely, coming back home two weeks before easter, online studying and to top it all off, being on lockdown for at least three weeks. I'm not going to tell you the logistics... Continue Reading →

What do you want?

In a world that tells us what to be, what to like and what to do, how often do you you consider and actually do what you want to do? Not what social media tells you do, not what culture tells you to, not what your family and friends tells you to do. For me,... Continue Reading →

Sometimes it’s too much….

I think sometimes the subjects that are the hardest to talk about are the most important. Obviously I took a week off writing this week. I got really ill, with a stomach bug and was bound to the bed until Thursday. Getting up to my laptop to write a blog was just not an option.... Continue Reading →

Redefining Feminism

As you may know, I study English Literature. One of the modules on my course involve looking at different readings of Literature. One of them is Feminism. What does Feminism mean to you? There have been mutilple waves of Feminism and we are currently in the fourth wave; the present. what Feminism meant in the... Continue Reading →

Change of Plan

I'm so glad that I enjoy writing on the spot. Today took an unexpected turn. I planned a blog to write on "Redefining Feminism", I scheduled it to be written, finalised and publish by 10pm tonight and as you've probably noticed - it hasn't happened. My day just went differently, and although I could be... Continue Reading →

1 Day of Love?

February 14th. The best days for some, the worst for others. Some hate it... too much, some love it... again, too much. For the whole of my teenage years I hovered somewhere in between. Regardless of whether I was talking to a guy during that time or not I never really saw it as a... Continue Reading →

Take Time

Yesterday, I went back to my home town to visit my family. I havent't seen them since Christmas time and had been missing them all so much. Despite having tons and tons of reading to do, having some events to squeeze in and having some jobs to run, I was determined to see my family... Continue Reading →

Unmotivated?

Yeah me too. I've been sitting in bed for the past two hours following my lectures this morning. Granted, I was tired, and had some shows I wanted to catch up on also but in all honesty I feel extremely unmotivated. It gets like that sometimes. Sometimes, like this morning, I wake up and want...

Don’t be so hasty

This is a blog for me. And maybe you can relate. The meaning of hasty in the English dictionary is '[something] done with excessive speed or urgency; hurried'. Are you being too hasty with the things in your life? I know I certainly can be. We all like results, we all like the finished product,... Continue Reading →

A Few Words…

You are you. No one will ever be you. No one can ever replace you. And THAT is your STRENGTH. Love Always, Shadz xo

My University Experience: Semester 1

Today I started semester 2 of university! I thought why not write about my experience during semester 1 on my blog today! So here we go... Driving to university on the first day was nerve wracking, as expected. All of my things were jam packed in the back of my dad's car and it was... Continue Reading →

The Art of Pursuit

First things first, I am incredibly sorry for the extremely late post. I was meant to post yesterday but life took over - you know how it is. What I want to talk about today is pursuit, the beauty of it, the art of it. Throughout my life I have pursued so many things. People,... Continue Reading →

Know Your Worth

In many aspects of our everyday life, we do not give ourselves enough credit for who we are; a lot of us do not know our worth or sometimes fail to recognise it. If we treat ourselves as if we are worth less than we are, we leave room for self-doubt and a lack of... Continue Reading →

Girl, those red flags…

I know first hand that it is so easy to ignore such explicit red flags when it comes to guys and dating. Sometimes it's easy to not see red flags, but 9/10 times, we see a red flag.... and then ignore it. This is down to a number of reasons. We might reallyyyyyy want a... Continue Reading →

Self-Image

Everyday many of us tend to maginify the parts of ourselves that we don't like. We sometimes become so obsessed with the parts of ourselves that we don't like and subsequently let these parts define us. I think that we all need to develop a positive self-image. In an world that is so revolved around... Continue Reading →

Choose your company

As the cliche goes, you are who your friends are. As much as we like to believe that nothing or no-one can influence us, this is simply not true. Who do you want to be? What are you aspiring to do? Where are you going? Ask yourself those questions when choosing your friends. Chances are,... Continue Reading →

Relationship Advice: Let’s be real

I am only 19 years old and have my whole life ahead of me. Despite not being extremely experienced in the adult dating field, I still believe I am qualified to give advice based off of my own experiences. The idea of having a boyfriend or a girlfriend as a teenager can be thrilling, exciting,... Continue Reading →

My faith and me: What do I believe?

The connatations of Christianity in the Western world does not euqate to it's meaning or value to those who actually believe. Being born and raised in church I have seen so many variations and ideas regarding being a Christian. Living in a secular society, where faith and belief is seen as an outdated concept, it's...

What we try to conceal

Did you know that there is nothing wrong with the way you look? That spot, that scar, that excess bit of fat, the blemish on your cheek does not decrease your worth or your beauty. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. I know it can be so easy to look at yourself and compare yourself... Continue Reading →

When things don’t quite go to plan..

Throughout my A-levels I tried extremely hard. Choosing three subjects that had little relevance to each other and without having a clear career plan it was destined to be quite a bumpy road. And that it was just that. I chose English Literature, Maths, Psychology and Biology when I started sixth form and the first... Continue Reading →
