We’re All Sick and Jomny Sun is the Cure

Not often do I love something as much as I love the Twitter of one @jonnysun. Not often does a series of words stick with me for long periods of time, let alone inform my decisions and give me hope to the point where I put it above my desk. A few years back, I… Continue reading We’re All Sick and Jomny Sun is the Cure

Summertime Sadness: A(n Amateur) Guide to Mental Illness Management at Festivals

A couple of weeks ago now, a group of my uni friends and I went to Citadel Festival in London. Full of current and past favourites of mine including Laura Marling, Maggie Rogers, Parcels and headliners Foals, it was an instant yes from me when my lovely and always on-the-music-ball friend David suggested it. I'd… Continue reading Summertime Sadness: A(n Amateur) Guide to Mental Illness Management at Festivals

I took it out of my university library to read before I headed home for the summer but, unfortunately, did not reach the end. I will go into why… Continue reading I Never Promised You A Rose Garden by Hannah Green – A Review

A Super Quick Love Letter to Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Okay but, really. Why have more people not seen this show? Read this then immediately go and watch it. The first two seasons are on Netflix and if you don't have Netflix 1) you're a liar and 2) borrow your friend's/flatmates/use your ex's because we both know you still know the password. The first thing… Continue reading A Super Quick Love Letter to Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig – A Review

Story time. As an unwritten rule, once it gets above 22 degrees Celsius in Britain, we freak out. If it gets above 25, the old 'Hot, isn't it?' 'Yeah, might be too hot' conversation starts emerging. And then you get this past week. Consistently hitting between 26 and 31 for a full five days, people… Continue reading Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig – A Review
