365 Challenge : Places

I have been lucky enough to travel a little and if I’m honest if I had to choose a place that I loved the most it would be here in Plymouth.

Not to sound like a ass but I moved away when I was 16 and instead of going to uni I got a job and saved up to travel. I’ve been to many countries and cities, stayed in some for months on end and others for mere days.

After all that though when I had a choice of where I wanted to go and what I wanted to do with my life I choose to come home to Plymouth.

It always makes Anna laugh because she’s from Plymouth but unlike me she has never left. I do genuinely love my home city though. The fact that you are never too far away from the sea or fields or city life or whatever. I find people here nicer and friendlier then anywhere I have stayed and I miss it when I’m gone.

I guess there is nowhere better to be then home?

365 Challenge : Happily Ever After

I think the concept of Happily Ever After is stupid.

Life would not be worth living if one event meant you lived a trouble free life from that point on.

Struggles in life is what makes us human. You learn from mistakes, you grow as a person, you meet people that you’d much rather not have but all these little things gives you a life worth living. Even with the perfect job, the perfect house, the perfect partner and the best things happening that you could imagine something negative will happen at some point.

In fairy tales happily ever after is usually begun by marriage. In our times you see the amount of people who enter into these unions just to break it once again, you might be happy for a year, ten years even more but there can always be that day that breaks you.

Instead of waiting for a Happily Ever After moment you should strive to live for the moment. Something bad will always happen at some point but facing it all with a positive attitude instead of facing it with blind, childish belief that fairy tales are real is the way to live life.

Only a fool would believe they’ve had a “Happily Ever After” moment.

Happy Valentine’s Day

As always at the last minute I was asked to draw something for Valentines Day WHILST working and having to do 100 other things. So I have a half finished drawing which I have to share straight off my phone!


It is also, unfortunately, the wrong way round. I will change that when I get home tonight!

Of course if you are alone on Valentines don’t get all grumpy and upset! There is no limit on the things you are allowed to love. I’ve brought the co-worker I’m working with a card, she’s buying MaccyDs for us and when I get home I shall watch myself some Bottom whilst cuddling into my Lionhearts t-shirt and playing Game of Thrones. Because at the end of the day if you don’t have anyone and your friends are all loved up, busy or miserable you can always love yourself.

As always be safe and happy!

Week 12

23rd March – 29th March

Week 2 Question :
How have you changed in the last two years?

Well its funny. I’ve become more confident without really showing it, I’ve become more open without really knowing it and I’ve become happier without ever feeling it.

Strange I know but its true.

Two years ago I’d jump at my own shadow (OK I still do that quite often,) I couldn’t make eye contact with anyone and I kept everything bottled inside me till I exploded (strangely enough I DID explode two years ago which is probably why I changed.)

I’m getting to the point where I don’t care what I think everyone else thinks about me (yeah stupid) because I’m kind of happy with myself the way I am. I still have a ways to go but I’ve got to the conclusion that to be honest if I just smile and be myself I’m going to turn out fine regardless of whether I think at that time I’m going to be fine. Everything will turn out alright I just need to keep doing the things that make me happy. Of course that is always hard but I’m trying.

I’m trying. *Shakes fists* I’m trying….
