What To Expect When Sitting Your Driving Test For The First Time

Guys I did it- I passed my driving test; first time! Its actually been a month to the day since I passed and it still hasn’t sunk in that I can actually drive now! Probably because I can’t afford a car or insurance and won’t be able to any time soon, so it doesn’t feel like anything’s really changed. Still it’s a big thing for me; I come from a poor family and neither my parents or grandparents can drive, so cars haven’t really been a part of my life until very recently. As I wrote about in  ...

What To Expect When Sitting Your Theory Test For The First Time

So unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week (or you know, don’t follow me on social media) you’ll know that this week I sat my theory test and passed it first time! I can’t explain how happy and hyper I still am about this, I’d been panicking about it for nearly a month and honestly expected myself to fail. Thats not because I thought I would as such, its just a coping technique I use to make sure I don’t become overconfident and also stops depression taking over if I do  ...

Little Life Update: Why I Took a Break From The Internet

So as you may have noticed, I’ve been pretty much absent from both my blog and social media over the past two weeks. There are a couple of reasons why and I thought I’d take this time to give you all a little life update and explain my absence at the same time. Two birds, one stone. So first up- I’ve got my theory test coming up next week! I’m absolutely terrified that I won’t pass first time but I’ve passed all of the practice tests I’ve taken for  ...

Thoughts People With Anxiety Have While Driving

I have a real love/hate relationship with driving. On the one hand I love the freedom that driving can give you: no more need to rely on busses or trains that never seem to turn up on time and you can just random decide to go on a road trip to the coast, rather than having to research travel times and buy 6 different tickets in advance! On the other hand I absolutely hate driving, it causes me so much stress and anxiety! Not so much about driving myself (I can take pride that I am actually  ...

Come With Me: Road Trip With The Boyfriend

Who doesn’t love a good road trip? Theres nothing better than just getting in your car and driving off somewhere for the day. Or in my case; getting in your boyfriends car and having him drive you everywhere because you can’t legally drive yet… As you may have seen if you follow me on Instagram I recently bought myself my first ever camera! I’d been wanting to do this for some time now: I study Digital Media Production at uni and for my elective next year I chose  ...

Top 4 Tips For Learning to Drive with Anxiety 

Getting behind the wheel of a car has got to be one of the most anxiety inducing acts I’ve done in a long time! The thought of being in charge of a moving vehicle that could hurt or kill someone if I did something wrong very nearly had me giving up on learning before I even started…again. I’ve always wanted to learn to drive. Neither of my parents can drive and as such I’ve been stuck suffering on public transport for most of my life. Stuck relying on one train an  ...

Goals for 2017

I've never been one for New Years resolutions or setting myself yearly goals- hell those of you who've been reading my blog a while will notice I've stopped setting myself monthly ones as it made me feel bad when I've not achieved them! I've decided that the best way to move forward is to review my month at the end of it, see how it went and what I can learn moving forward into the next one. It seems much more positive!

2016: A Positive Review

Happy new year and welcome back to my blog guys and gals! As you might've noticed I took a bit of a break from the blogging world at the back end of 2016, partly due to university and to focus on my mental health as I was having a bit of a bad time. However I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things with the beginning of the new year: start blogging regularly again and keep on top of all my up coming uni work. Wishful thinking but worth a try. I'm not going to do an in depth  ...
