2017 / It wasn’t all bad

You will probably hear the phrase ‘I can’t belive 2017 is almost over’ at least eighty times over the next few weeks, so I’m not going to dwell, but the thought of 2018 is actually sort of terrifying? Wasn’t January like, five days ago? I actually like the way the prospect of a fresh, clean…

Why didn’t anybody stop you?

‘Why didn’t anybody stop you?’  ‘Nobody noticed.’ I get really fucking upset when I think about this now, with a healthier mind. Throw myself a little pity party – banners blaring ‘How didn’t anybody see I was dying?’ ‘You all suck’. I look at pictures of me from three years ago and just want to…

Abbie

Its no secret that I am basically a fan account for Abbie at times, but I can never find a way to put into words just how much she means to me. So I’m going to try. *serious cheese alert*. I’m not being melodramatic when I say that for about a year I didn’t really…

Caffeinated thoughts #1

You may, or may not, recall me speaking about starting this little series quite a while ago. Truth be told, it got lost in a storm of half finished attempted blog posts that have managed to pile up in my drafts. But with the temperature dropping and the tint of festivity to the air, I…

Study days.

Early mornings help. Not stupid early, but not lying in bed scrolling through a hundred tweets and putting off actually leaving my safe cosy nest of a duvet. Anywhere between 7 and 8 am usually works well with my internal clock. I always, always make my bed now. It’s the smallest little task and it’s…

A letter to 12 year old me.

Dear Casy, Hi. I want you, right now, to prepare yourself because, holy shit girl, you’re in for one hell of a ride. And I think you are well aware of that. You’re aware that those numbers on cellophane packets mean more to you than they should. You’re aware that your mind worries about things…

So many questions, so little time.

Hello my loves. So another Monday has been survived and we can safely say the toughest part of this week is over. I hope everyone is doing well, and is loving the autumnal weather! I have recently created a board on my Pinterest called ‘questions’, which, as the title may suggest, is quite literally a…

‘What do you do all day?’

Hello my loves. I laugh a lot about this question, because it’s fair enough. I’m out of school, have a very small social circle and really 12 hours sometimes seems an awful long time. I thought I’d do another one of these Day In The Life type things, but this one is going to be…

The questions everyone seems to want answered.

No numbers are mentioned on here. I am aware that so many people ask about this but it is a topic I feel very strongly about regarding with discretion as it can be so triggering for myself and others.  Hello my loves. i hope this week has been ok for everyone so far. So far…

The people who unintentionally save my life everyday #2

So a while back I did a post very similar to this. It was very mushy and all that but it gave me an opportunity to really be honest and vocalise my gratitude towards a few particular people. The internet is a very, very weird place. Yes, we all sat through those assemblies. ‘Never talk…

The August Update – Puppies, relapse and finding motivation.

Happy September! I am buzzing today all because of a word on the calendar. But seriously? Autumn is finally upon us and I couldn’t be happier if I tried. Not only that it’s cold and frosty outside this evening – eek! So I have been kind of absent from blog recently and I am sorry…

How I deal with the unavoidable ‘Food Guilt’.

It’s anorexias speciality. The ‘why did you just eat that?!’. The ‘you just ruined everything’. It screams at you ‘1000 calories. Did you really just eat 1000 calories?!’. And no matter what you do, the voice doesn’t go anywhere. It gets a bit quieter, but it never leaves.  For me, this is the hardest thing…
