  • Netflix and Chill in 2019 | AD

    Ah, Netflix. One of the best websites to ever be made, but also one of the worst. Then you have the term “netflix and chill”, which translates into either a good time, or a “good time”. For me, Netflix and Chill, is a good time; a time of self love, relaxing, and binging on a new show in hopes of avoiding all deadlines. I want to talk about all the shows I’ve loved, and hopefully, will love in 2019.  read more

  • What If You’re The Toxic One

    You see on twitter, day in day out, that if you’re in a toxic relationship, wether that be romantic or not, leave. It’s not good for you. You deserve better. But, what if you’re the toxic one in any relationship? Let’s talk

    What am I talking about?

    Let me show you.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    See what I mean? People are going round left, right and centre advocating about toxicity in relationships. But not many people will admit the toxic person is themselves. Not many people will admit that they are the ones with the toxic traits. It’s much easier to blame others instead of finding the issues within you.

    I came to a realisation

    I’m the toxic one in the relationship. You probably are too. He is too. So is she.

    Remember when Hannah Montana said nobodys perfect (yeah i’m using this disney analogy, sue me), that resonates in EVERY SINGLE PERSON. We’re all a little toxic. Some of us more than others. But we all have toxic traits. Now that could be defined different depending on how you see toxicity in relationships.

    Now I am in no way an expert in relationships, be it romantic or platonic. I argue with everyone I care about, I cause issues, I can fight day in day out (although I really do hate it). See what I mean, toxic?  I can confidently say most issues cause in my life are my own fault, most arguments with friends, family, loved ones, are because of me. Partly.

    I’d never blame something purely on one person, and I can’t blame myself for relationship downfalls. It takes two to tango.

  • My desire for backpacking – Pros and Cons – Travel

    Anyone else randomly get really strong urges to just pack your bags and take a plane to anywhere? I follow a fair amount of travel bloggers who create awe inspiring content, and all I want to do is join them. Shame my bank balance doesn’t agree with that. My goal is to one day go backpacking and experience raw and unfiltered cultures, and travels. Don’t know much about backpacking? Let me help you fall in love

    Backpacking, in the simplest way possible, is travelling with a backpack. Pretty straightforward huh? read more

  • Update: Learning to live

    This post is going to be a little bit different. I know in my last post I said that I’m back into blogging and will be blogging more frequently, but unfortunately, that is not the case. It may get a little deep and serious, so If you want to click off this post, then that’s perfectly fine. I just wanted to update regular readers and those asking why I haven’t been posting.

    I’m going to summarise what has been going on in the past few months.

    I had semester one exams, which were difficult because I haven’t been in the best state mentally. I cannot focus well enough and revision has been non existent. Regardless, I did pass my exams which I am more than grateful for. But this mood has just continued, if not, gotten worse through the months.

    I lost my best friend. I am no longer in contact with him, and honestly I don’t think there will be any reconciliation between us. I prefer to keep my personal life private, so I won’t be giving details. So that is all I am comfortable enough to announce. I miss my best friend and I do wish him the best in life.

    Now as expected, this has taken a toll on me. I find it a lot harder to continue with my life the way I used to when I no longer have my rock there with me. 

    All i’ve been doing is eating junk food, sleeping, gaining around ten kilos, breaking out and feeling sorry for myself. I can’t even do retail therapy because my bank balance won’t allow it.  read more
