Dancing on my own

"You're hiding. You're hiding behind your safe, crappy relationship with Henry, hoping no one notices that you're not in love with him. I notice," my best friend whispers to me as I glance over at you once again. I roll my eyes and fake a smile and through gritted teeth I say "I don't know [...]

Lovers or Liars

I'm trying to put a finger on this feeling. Trying to get some sort of explanation as to what I'm thinking. Because it sort of feels like I'm in a spiral, just spinning round and round. I can't remember what we came here for. Why we are back in this place once again. Where everything [...]

I wish I had met you seven years from now

I wish I had met you seven years from now. I wish I had met you when we weren't young and stupid and utterly obsessed with the drama of high school. My love for you was never the problem. You were never the question. It was the drama that surrounded us. It was the fact [...]

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 [...]

Best friends can break your heart too

What should I do with the framed photo I have of us on my shelf? What should I do with the photos all over my social media of us with captions of "I love you" and "She's my best friend" plastered all over them. What should I do when it's your birthday? Am I supposed [...]

How (not) to be single

There's a certain way to be single and I certainly haven't received the memo on how to be that yet. So you're single? Welcome to hell. It's been waiting for you. It's a whole new life and you're going to love it. So this is how to be single...or not. 1.Stay obsessed with your ex [...]

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 [...]

Excuse me whilst I delete you from my life

Will you just excuse me whilst I delete you from my life? Just watch me whilst I resist the urge to double tap on your picture of you smiling that smile that made me slightly weak the knees just looking at it. Whilst I hit you with a read receipt but with no reply. Whilst [...]

´╗┐The different ways you can miss someone

At first, your mind will work so so hard to forget that one person. Your mind will work overtime just to forget the mere existence of that person. This could be just because you want to forget about them completely. Or it could be because you want to mask the feelings of sadness or the [...]
