Just chill, you’re doing fine

21st Oct, 2015

Hitting reset

14th Oct, 2015

Ryan, you’re an idiot

15th Jan, 2015

“Ryan, you’re an idiot” – is a greeting I’ve become accustom to from my Dad. We have that kind of stupid name calling relationship we should have grown out of a long time ago, but we just can’t let go. We… Continue reading

Do you do that everyday?

08th Jan, 2015

When I tell people what I do everyday in my routine I often get odd looks. “You get up when?” is something I hear pretty often, along with “Do you do that everyday?” People find my routine odd, or at… Continue reading

A Christmas present to myself

20th Nov, 2014

I’ve asked myself a question for a while now, ‘how do I get better at writing?’, and I’ve concluded I simply just have to do it more. So I have set myself a goal and I am going to write… Continue reading
