I’m BaaAACK!


It’s been so long since I last did a post! I’ve been struggling with my depression lately and I’ve had my finances and uni work piling up all around me. I was really overwhelmed. 

But, I am back and I am going to try and post content each week as I did before. I’m not sure what kind of content yet, I’m just going to go with the flow! 

What I will say though is that next Thursday I shall be flying away in the early hours to New York, the city that never sleeps!! 

I can’t wait!! 


My new book!

Hello everyone!

Sorry I’ve been away for quite a while but I can finally announce that my nonfiction short story is now on amazon kindle for 99p! 

I wrote it under the alias of Maggie Crooks because it is very personal and I wanted to protect my family and friends, but all names have been kept out of it. I wanted to tell you all this because I am not ashamed of the content. I simply wanted to protect the people in my book. 

It’s all about my battle with depression and I wanted to create mental health awareness as I think that it is still a subject we don’t talk about. I hope you can help me to create awareness and I hope you enjoy it!

New, Wisdom Wednesday Video!

This week’s Wisdom Wednesday is all about relationships. Wisdom Wednesday videos are when I take time out of my day to discuss issues such as; family and education, to share my own experiences. I hope these videos help those that need some advice and make those in need feel less alone.

Filming Day with Slate and John Lewis!

09.30am Train

So, I’m on my way to filming! We’re doing a University project for Slate Charity Group, who help people with special needs into work! They contacted us saying that they are wanting a film made about their organisation and what they do! 

We gathered together and made sure that we knew what we were doing at the local coffee shop. We decided what equipment we need and what questions to ask. 

At the moment I’m feeling a bit anxious as I’ve been nominated to be on film interviewing a staff member at John Lewis. I guess you can say I’m feeling the pressure. I have so much uni work to do and it’s all becoming a little overwhelming! 

But, just today and next Tuesday and I’m done for Christmas for 3 whole weeks! Yay!! 



Hated the filming! There isn’t much I can say about our day other than that. 

The people were rude and our teacher was rude and talked down to us like children. 

I enjoyed the filming bit but the rest of our day was ruined by inconsiderate people.
