Is January really the best month for change?

January hasn't gone to plan so far. I didn't want the year to start this way. I had a really good year last year and I wanted to carry that momentum into this year and continue with the positivity but it hasn't played out like that. I feel like everyone has already settled into 2018.… Continue reading Is January really the best month for change?

The Graduate: One year on

A year ago, I became an English Language and Spanish graduate from Bangor University. Fun story by Stephanie Clayton, aged 23 and 3/4. No but seriously, I spent four years preparing for this day (not physically- although if you're wearing fake tan then preparing a few days before is key. Last minute tan+rain=disaster.)

Boring is a word that gets thrown about from time to time; normally when you have to decline drinks for the third time in a row.… Continue reading Did having a baby make me boring?
