You know just as well as I do that I've never really known what it felt like to be appreciated, valued and cherished.

Why I chose study leave!?!

Morning, I needed to write. I'm a week into my exams and I thought I wouldn't blog until after, but I had this overwhelming, and consuming feeling that I needed to. Things I needed to say.

How are you? How am I? These past few weeks have been a tale of something happy - the beginning of good things, a grasp of who I am and who I would like to become. It's been weeks of accomplishment, laughter, amazing nights out and more sleep than I've had in a whole year;... Continue Reading →
