Self Sabotage.

When writing a non blog related piece, I came across a quote that really resonated with me and made me feel a lot better about my writing. The quote was by famous Chinese philosopher Confucius that read; “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop” It made me…

I am Struggling; A Writing Update.

For those who haven’t realised, it’s been a while since I have posted something… In my Goals for 2018 post I said that this year I would be working on putting quality before quantity, the problem I am having however is that I haven’t really sat down and written enough to work on quality. It’s…

Trying New Things/ Add me on Vero.

I try my very best to advertise on social media, without it I’d probably get very little traffic. I have a Twitter account, I have an Instagram account and when I can remember to I often post links to my posts on my personal Facebook account. A new social media app called Vero and as of writing this…

Challenges Happen.

Late last year/ early this year I wrote posts about goals and about how I planned to achieve them in the most reasonable ways possible. Not 100% sure why I didn’t predict this happening when I wrote and subsequently, but none the less here I am not even a quarter of the way into the year…

Tide Pod Challenge.

I didn’t want to write this post, I REALLY didn’t… So much so that I actually started it last night/ very early this morning, got part of the way into it then stopped and deleted it. I didn’t leave it as a draft to continue when I felt or could or delete it and let…

YouTuber Shane Dawson accused of pedophilia.

The last week and a half has been one for YouTube controversy as more and more news of wrong doings done by popular YouTube stars comes to light. First, details of Logan Paul’s controversial Japanese vlog and just recently YouTube original Shane Dawson has come under fire after being accused of Pedophilia. Many have condemned the…

Dreaming vs Doing

Originally posted on sherinaspeaks:
What is your dream in life? How much time per day—or even per week—do you spend working to make that dream a reality? And how much time you do spend dreaming about making it a reality? If you’ve read some of my recent blog posts, you might know that I am…

RE: Reading List Page.

I’ve wanted to do a public reading list for a while now but held off due to similar endevours failing in the past. This year however being my year to put more effort into doing things, I have decided to give it a go. For anyone who might not know or hasn’t seen one before,…

Completing Goals Bit by Bit.

Goals are best completed (in my opinion) slowly but surely. In my last post I said “The best way to get something done (in my opinion) is to slowly chip away at it so you can make sure it’s done right” and for a moment I would like to expand on that just so I can make…

Goals for 2018.

I don’t like New Years resolutions for the simple fact that I can’t do them. I JUST CAN’T. On multiple occasions I’ve set myself what I thought to be reasonable resolutions (trust me they were VERY reasonable) and like any other person I went on to trying to complete them in the subsequent new year. Unfortunately I’ve NEVER…

Why What I Think About My Job Doesn’t Matter.

I am currently in my third week of my new job and how I feel about it currently is an annoying level of conflicting. Hear me out on this one. Avoiding an arduous description, I work in a call centre. There’s a little more to it than that, but the point of this post doesn’t…

Sorry NaNoWriMo, Not This Year…

We gave it a good go last year and it didn’t do either of us any good. No it’s okay, don’t get upset! It’s not your fault. It’s me, not you! I still love you, I just don’t want to repeat a bad experience… SO it’s November again and that means one thing (probably more…

Writing is My Home.

The best part about home (wherever yours may be) is that it makes you feel safe. It’s a place where you can just be your crazy self without having to be judged for it. Because of that, home holds a special place in our heart. For me writing is my home. Since I began writing it…

Identity Crisis.

A few years ago in a now deleted tweet, I stated that I didn’t believe a “writing identity crisis” was a thing. Boy was I wrong. I just had one, and I lost. HARD!
