Ready for the Next Chapter.

‘What feels like the end is often the beginning’ – Unknown. Being a creative writing student and a lifelong book-nerd, it is fair to say I join the many when I look back on my life in chapters. Each time I reach the end of a chapter, I am initially sad that it is over…

‘You are an intelligent woman. Own this!’

Dear Future Em, You got your group presentation feedback today. And you went and got a freakin’ first. You smashed it. Your lecturer is obviously very observant. This was his final comment on your feedback form: ‘You portrayed confidence. This is great, but it might not be sustainable in the future if the reality inside…

Resolutions?

I’ve stopped making resolutions. Well, kind of. If you ask me if I have any new year resolutions for 2017, I will tell you no. I find that every year I make resolutions for the coming year, it’s almost as if I’m resigning myself to fail. So this year instead of making resolutions, I decided…

Clearing Out

The Toughest 3 Weeks of My Life (so far)…

Summertime last year, I took probably one of the biggest steps of my life and ventured the furthest away from home I’d ever been. Different country, different continent, different hemisphere. And what an adventure it was. Three weeks ago, I took another big step in my life, and somehow I think this one has been…

New Beginnings!

“The word adventure has gotten overused. For me, when everything goes wrong, that’s when the adventure starts” – Unknown I don’t know where or who that quote’s from but I came across it the other day as I scrolled through the quotes app on my phone. I think it describes me pretty well – I…
