I try to write one of these every year, mainly because I love reading them back in times to come and remembering what I loved and what I didn’t. In my blog of 2019 books, I said I was going to try to do less comfort reading and read more new books – obviously, with … Continue reading 2020: My Year in Books
I’ve found writing anything in the last eight or nine months almost impossible. I wanted to write about my experiences of the pandemic and lockdown, and everything that goes with it, but every article had to start with so many caveats about how lucky I am compared to so many that it felt overindulgent and … Continue reading Goodbye 2020; Hello 2021
What is Bi Visibility Week? Bi Visibility Week runs from the 16th September to 23rd September. This is a week to celebrate all the bisexuals in the LGBTQ+ community. Why is it Bi Visibility Week? It is a common issue among bisexuals that they feel their sexuality is invisible. Society tends to judge a person's … Continue reading Happy Bi Visibility Week!
Have you lost track of how long you’ve been on lockdown yet? I have. I’m guessing it’s about a month. Long enough that I have new routines, new habits, new expectations of what I get out of each day. I’m lucky that I’m still working, both because I’m keeping my salary and because it means … Continue reading Panic
Here we are, another blog about the lockdown. I’ll try and avoid as many clichés as possible although I imagine it will be difficult! How are you all doing? How are you adjusting? My partner and I have been social distancing for three weeks or so, although I was ill for about four weeks before … Continue reading Well, this is all a bit shite, isn’t it?!
Four years ago, I wrote a blog about “home”. About what home means, especially when your family home is in another country to your partner’s, but also what it means when your home country stops feeling like home to you. Since then, things haven’t exactly improved. Any lingering hope that the utter stupidity that is … Continue reading Brexit Day
As some of you may know, last summer I came out as bisexual. Although a few of my friends are also bi, I thought that finding more people and getting a feeling of community would help with the intense loneliness and confusion that coming out brings (especially when you’re in your 30s and don’t want … Continue reading Which way to the Vagina Museum?
I didn’t write one of these for 2018, which is rather a shame in hindsight as I love looking back at what I’ve read and it’s so easy to forget. In fact, one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to keep a record of the books I’ve read, with a score and a short description. … Continue reading 2019: My Year in Books
Where is the line between being comfortable, but bored, and stuck, and not growing; and growing as a person, but being uncomfortable, anxious, and unsure of yourself? At the beginning of this year, I wanted a year of less anxiety. 2018 involved a house move, and a couple of months separated from my partner, and … Continue reading Comfort vs. Discomfort – a story of 2019
About six weeks ago, I had train-track braces fitted. Although apparently adults getting braces fitted (I’m 31) is becoming more common, there still isn’t a huge amount of information about it. This rather over-informative blog is all the things I’ve noticed over my first month and a half. In my case, it wasn’t purely for … Continue reading Getting Braces in Adulthood
