A poem I wrote over four years ago. It has been a while snce my last blog and I apologise for the delay. It has been an exhausting month and I have barely had time to even catch my breath! But here is something I recently found on my desktop; a poem I wrote over […]
Apologies for the delay in this post. I would like to apologise for the lateness of this post. A combination of internet problems and outside commitments prevented me from touching a keyboard but now I’m back. January has seen me return to my course and reignite my search for a job but money hasn’t really […]
How I sometimes feel about life. For the most part, i couldn’t be happier. I have a beautiful girlfriend, my course is going great and it’s almost Christmas. But, even the, there is sometimes a gap; a feeling that maybe there is something I’m missing from completing this perfect picture.
The anticipation of Christmas. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t love Christmas. I’m never in it for the religion or the decorations but for the atmosphere. When I think fo Christmas I think of mystery and wonder. It is a time that the Victorians traditionally told ghost stories on and a time when […]
Another week of labour intensive scheduling. A lot of assignments had to be handed in this week so you can expect plenty of last minute running around to meet deadlines! Hence why this entry is very short and very late. But the pile is slowly diminishing into single A4 pages and essays that are three-quarters […]
Where my mind is at. I dreamed of woods when I was a child. I dreamed of forests, miles upon miles of seamless tree lines with the floor carpeted in pine cones. This was my escape, this was the place wanted to be alone, cut off from the grime and noise of civilisation as well […]
Using my experiences with depression to help a friend. My best friend told me about the rough time he was going through, about the lack of motivation and direction he seemed to be going through recently. He proclaimed a certain jealousy towards me, how I “had everything and he had nothing”. And, in an instant, […]
Bringing closure to a lifetime of grief… I creep over bracken and twisted arms of jagged nettles, the clearing in full view up ahead. It is here that oblivion almost came too soon, that night when I crawled through a bush in order to reach the trees and end it all. I have returned here […]
Life and its distractions… It’s been a while since my last entry as my course keeps throwing up new projects for me to do. This is really the first chance I’ve gotten to sit down and, believe me, it’s a rest well and truly appreciated! It’s incredible how indulging in your passion can distract you […]
So very tired but what a day! Today was my first day back at University and, boy, I have never been so shattered! To see everyone again was an incredible feeling and the opportunities presented to us this year are so exciting, I don’t know what to choose first.
A list of things that I would have missed had I been dead and the philosophy of how I live my life now. My cousin turned four years old today. We purchased for him a walkie-talkie in the shape of Spiderman to celebrate the occasion. He loved it so much that it was an extra […]
My favourite time of year! It’s no understatement when I say that I love Halloween! Everything good in life happens for me around this special time of year. My birthday, Halloween parties, get togethers with friends and the celebration of the horror genre – my all time favourite genre – it’s fantastic! Christmas maybe the […]
