As a twenty-something year old, you are officially an adult, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you feel like one. Sure, you’ve finished university, or are close to finishing, and you can drink, and drive, and get a credit card, which leaves you feeling pretty close to what an “adult” is supposed to be. But then you look around and see people your age who clearly have their stuff together, and you just don’t. It’s normal to feel this way from time to time, but rather than stew in these feelings, it’s vital that you do what you can to resolve them. Here are six things you can do. Okay, lets do it!

Is University Worth It?

Welcome back boo!

I trust you are all well.

You guys know that I am currently studying at university. This week I really want to discuss a question lots of my younger followers ask me; is university really worth it? Is it worth the £45K+ debt? Is it worth the three years of time that I could have used jumping straight into employment and getting experience? Is it worth the stress and mental challenges? Are you guaranteed a job afterwards? In light of recent governmental events, is it worth the inconvenient strikes? My answer to all of these in a nutshell is- University is what YOU make of it (I know, cliche right?) but there are a few things I want to share that could apply to future and current students. LET’S DO IT.

Phenomenal Woman; The Competitive Transition Into Adulthood.

WELCOME back boo,

I hope you are all well.

Since starting this blog, my real passion truly resonates in our generation’s FUTURE as the heir to the throne we call ‘earth’. So today I want to celebrate femininity– a post inspired by my favourite poetic piece; Maya Angelou~ Phenomenal Woman.

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. 
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size   
But when I start to tell them, 
They think I’m telling lies. 
I say, 
It’s in the reach of my arms, 
The span of my hips,   
The stride of my step,   
The curl of my lips.   
I’m a woman 
Phenomenally. 
Phenomenal woman,   
That’s me.
