“What am I doing with my life?”

(cw: a lot of f*cking swearing) Well, what the fuck are you doing with your life? I’m writing this at midnight because I can’t sleep and I have to be up at 7am to pick up a van to start my move. What am I doing with my life? Right now, I should be asleepContinue reading ““What am I doing with my life?””

Sense of Smell and Grief

(cw: Grief) I had a new experience with grief yesterday. Smell. I was having a horrible day, and social media was making it worse so I decided to step away from my phone and computer and tackle some jobs that needed doing here. For those that don’t know I am currently living in my lateContinue reading “Sense of Smell and Grief”

I’m Struggling.

Happy Inauguration Day! Finally, after 4 years of “The Donald” he is no longer president. However, we’re not out of the woods yet. Just because he’s no longer in charge doesn’t mean his brand of politics (fascism) is over. He is a product of wider problems; of racism, nationalism, and misogyny – to name justContinue reading “I’m Struggling.”

Becoming A Parent

I have a question for you this Sunday: what does the term ‘Inner Child’ mean to you? For me it conjures the idea that inside of me is a living breathing child. Young Meg, around 5 years old and fairly ubiquitous. According to the Cambridge Dictionary, “Your inner child is the part of your personalityContinue reading “Becoming A Parent”

‘New Year New Me’ Can Fuck Right Off

We’re coming to the end of the toughest year of many of our lives. Firstly, con-grat-u-fucking-lations you’ve made it this far. However you managed it, you’ve smashed it. Now, the idea that because the Earth has completed another rotation around the Sun we need to ‘shed’ our old selves and become a totally new personContinue reading “‘New Year New Me’ Can Fuck Right Off”

My Name’s Meg & I’m an Alcoholic

Sunday’s daily meditation theme on my Calm app was Loneliness. I am absolutely petrified of loneliness. I don’t mean being on my own, I mean the feeling of loneliness. Some of the places I have felt the loneliest were when I was surrounded by people. The feeling that no one notices (or cares) that you’reContinue reading “My Name’s Meg & I’m an Alcoholic”

I’m Just Not Drinking Again

When I started this blog, I never thought I would be readdressing my drinking. I’d tried to quit before, many times, the first and longest stint was from Jan 2018 to March 2019. Everytime I fell back off the wagon I resigned myself to the fact that this was my life. I wasn’t a quitterContinue reading “I’m Just Not Drinking Again”

A List to Save and Use When You Aren’t Feeling Yourself

Inject me with all that wellness shit. Seriously, warm up a plate, rack it up and I will snort the fuck out of anything wellness right now. Spotify wellness playlist? Hell yeah. Sign up to the Calm app? OH YEAH. Following all the accounts focused on self-love? Fuck. Yeah. Today I feel like I amContinue reading “A List to Save and Use When You Aren’t Feeling Yourself”

You Don’t Owe Anyone Anything

Read that again. Once more: You. Don’t. Owe. Anyone. Anything. You don’t owe them sex. You don’t owe them a conversation. You don’t owe them an education. You don’t owe them pretty. I’m reading the book ‘Women don’t owe you pretty’ by Florence Given. Which inspired me to pen the below. Its popular starter feminism,Continue reading “You Don’t Owe Anyone Anything”
