in which i am extremely disappointed in project semicolon

Project Semicolon started a fantastic global movement. You’ve all probably seen the semicolon tattoos and images around, and know that it’s SOMETHING to do with mental health. Here’s why: “The semicolon is used when a sentence could have ended, but didn’t.” That’s really powerful stuff. So powerful in fact that I immediately donated to their […]

how to be an LGBT* ally

I’ve wanted to write a blog on this for a while, and with glorious pictures of Pride filling my news feed, I’m inspired to do this now. What is an ally and why does it matter? An ally is a person who champions the rights, freedoms and equality of people who fall on the spectrum that […]

relax and enjoy christmas

Christmas is a time to relax. You’ve finished the wrapping, the travelling and the cooking. Everything is unwrapped, charging, and thank you notes are on the way. Or maybe not. Either way, you have time now. Time to enjoy and look after yourself. I’ve collected a few bits and pieces from around the internet for […]
