I’m a wee bit late with my goals, but I’ve started working towards them already, I promise! I have never been great at sticking to my goals, but if I don’t even try I never will be right? Every little helps (…is what I tell myself as I fail every single one of them by a mile)
I’ve popped together 9 things I want to work on this year. I’d love it if I could ‘achieve’ them by the end of the year, but if I’m still working on them by the time 2018 then I’m not going to beat myself up about it. They’re generally just things that will improve my day-to-day life, but a few will help me out in the future too!
I did a photography project about ‘home’ and ‘homesickness’ last semester at uni, so the idea of going home has not been far from my mind since. I’ve been struggling with quite bad homesickness since I decided the topic of my project, so while I don’t get many days where I am both off university and work, I made a trip back up to the North-East a priority and managed to sneak a few in and revisit my hometown, finally.

After siting down and writing my postcards, I felt very homesick once again- and somewhat nostalgic. So instead of my usual tactic of ‘think of anything but home’, I decided to ‘cuddle’ my homesickness and put together a playlist of the kind of music I listened to in 2006+ Continue Reading

Now, I’m not heavily tattooed or anything (I have 10/8 depending on how you count them), but my family and people I surround myself with most of the time, are all a bit tattoo mad- so I’ve got good amount of know-how about them!
So here’s my top 7 things I wish I had known/thought about/someone had told me before getting my first tattoo Continue Reading
