I’m Trying Really Hard

I'm trying really hard to love the location that my partner and I are currently posted at. Or at least to like it. We've been here for six months now, which is almost as long as we were at our last location, but it still feels like I haven't settled in here. I've found so… Continue reading I’m Trying Really Hard

I Quit My Book Club

I just wanted to write this quick post today to share with you my news - I have quit my book club. Actually, I have quit both of them.

Mental Health Mondays: Putting the Pro in Prozac

I've been speaking about the experience of coming off anti-depressants for a few weeks now (here and here), and now comes the time to start talking about my experience with starting a new one. This is the fourth anti-depressant that I've been on in my life, and all of those in under 18 months. Safe… Continue reading Mental Health Mondays: Putting the Pro in Prozac

Thankfulness Thursday!

Today has been a whirlwhind! The internet has been down all day, and has taken many attempts to get it back. Turns out it is very difficult to tutor, do uni work, or post on this blog without it!

He’s Going Away

A huge part of being an army wife is spending time away from your partner. and last week my partner and I found out that he is going away again.

Mental Health Monday: Coming Off Anti- Depressants Again

I've written about my experience with coming off anti-depressants before, but seeing as this is my second time switching meds within a year I thought I would create another post to share my experience this time round and see if anything is different. DAY 1 & 2 My biggest feeling during these two days was… Continue reading Mental Health Monday: Coming Off Anti- Depressants Again

Money Saving May: Week 4

On the whole, I think I have done a pretty good job on the challenge in the past week and a bit. I haven't eaten out anywhere, I've only shopped at the supermarket to buy food, and I haven't brought anything home that wasn't a necessity. I did make one purchase, which was a hot… Continue reading Money Saving May: Week 4

An Honest Review of Living in Darwin

Pro: the ocean is everywhere Before I lived in Darwin, I loved the ocean. Even though I didn't live near it, I loved the idea of the ocean. Now no matter what direction I drive in I will hit the ocean within minutes, and it is always so beautiful. Con: at night during the wet… Continue reading An Honest Review of Living in Darwin

Thankfulness Thursday!

I've been really sick this past week, a combined effect of changing meds, catching a cold, and it being that time of the month. Because of this I've spent a lot of time at home, doing a whole lot of nothing, and feeling pretty sorry for myself. As a result of this, I spent more… Continue reading Thankfulness Thursday!

You Are Not Entitled To My Body

An open letter to the guy who touched me without my permission at a festival on Saturday: I was just sitting down on the grass, drinking my bottle of water, when you called out to me. I turned around and you were calling me over, telling me to come sit with you. You were wearing… Continue reading You Are Not Entitled To My Body
