In an empty empty bed

When you're in an empty bed. It's vast, almost never ending. You're surrounded by last nights pyjamas, crumpled sheets, an extra blanket, cuddly toys you're just a little bit too old for and probably a chocolate wrapper of some kind. The sheets, comforters, blankets, duvet and pillow look like mountains and valleys in the slight [...]

Welcome to the 9th of January, when you’re crap at life again

You woke up on January 1st (at mid day because getting in at 4am is rough) with all the ambition and motivation in the world. You jump up (with a pounding headache and the intense urge to vomit) and try to pretend you aren't as hungover as you actually are. Don't be concerned you are [...]

Someone’s bound to get burned

As I sit here once again with an exasperated look on my face, I think to myself how could boys be so stupid. How could they be stupid enough to spoil everything for us. Scratch that. How could we be so stupid to let them spoil everything. There's always a small part of us who [...]

What it feels like to actually start to move on

Moving on is not like a birthday or Christmas that you can count down the days until and mark it on the calendar. And you can't call up your friends in advance and plan something to celebrate. You can't plan for it and you certainly can't conclude it by blowing a candle or pulling a [...]

15 things to know about the Aries in your life

So you've got an Aries in your life? God have mercy on you. KIDDING. We are fantastic people to be around...I mean as long as you don't get on the wrong side of us. But in all seriousness we will RAM you in to a wall with our love. (Haha. No seriously.) Anyway Aries are [...]

What to do when you can’t sleep

Start by laying there for a little bit too long. Then start tossing and turning. Rearrange your pillows a million times even though you know you only like them in a certain way. Try laying on your back. And then your left. Then right. Then belly. But then your boobs start to hurt because they [...]

The bitter truth about why we suck at moving on

We all talk a lot about moving on. About letting go. About healing and forgetting. About putting ourselves first. About saving ourselves. About putting the pieces back together after we're broken. We talk about saying goodbye, coming clean, washing away the pain. We talk about moving on. We write and we cry and then we [...]

The amount of time it takes to get over someone. Or maybe not.

They say that when you're trying to get over someone it takes half of the time that you were together to fully move on. So if you were together for a year, you have six months of living hell ahead of you. Four years, two years ahead of you. A month, two weeks. And so [...]

A list of things I try to do instead of texting you

1.Actively ignore your snapchats and messages. Always be sure to never open them until they’ve been sitting there for at least an hour. (A minute). 2. Remind myself you don’t give a shit if I watch them or not and this overthinking is borderline pathetic. 3. Pick my nails. Wonder if it’s possible to ever [...]

5 small ways to make big changes

I swung my wardrobe door open to see nothing except a HUGE pile of clothes. I placed my hands on my hips and titled my head to the side wondering if it would look tidier at a different angle. It didn't. Oh! Did I need to add that opening the door caused clothes to spew [...]
