Survival Guide for Disorganised Bloggers!


Hello! So, in case this is the first time you have stumbled across this blog, my name is Victoria and I am 19 (it was literally my Birthday yesterday haha). While I have been blogging for about two years. However recently I have taken a longer than anticipated break from it.

Little Update


“Oh wow, she is doing another of these annoying update posts, even though there is literally nothing to say!” Yeah, probably true. But if you know the school timetable then you will know that this week is half term, meaning that I have more time to spend focusing on this blog (especially considering that becauseContinue reading “Little Update”

Are 9-5 Jobs Coming to an End?


Anyone else hate the prospect of a boring 9-5 office job? Perhaps instead you would prefer to be an entrepreneur, but in that case you probably should realise that you will be putting in more hours than you may think. Although there again, with the changing technology, and thanks to covid, anything is possible…

Pretty Privilege


We all know that it is Pretty women who seem to receive the male gaze. However is there another privilege associated with this? Such as the bimbo and helo effect, and why this is in society?

Personal Update


Hello! So here is another personal update, on the grounds that they are easier to write than the other kinds of posts which I do, and because I actually do have something relevant to say. So in recent weeks I haven’t been my best (at the time of writing this) but as I am writingContinue reading “Personal Update”

I Still Don’t Know What to Make of the Pandemic:


Most of us have an opinion one way or another. Some still believing that a lockdown is the only viable option, while others now strongly opposing it. Some have thought that strong lessons are to be learned from the pandemic, which could spark significant and hopefully positive change in the future. At this point, to admit you are not sure what to think is going to be slightly embarrassing, but surely I am not the only person who still doesn’t really know…

Mental Health Romanisation: Birthed by Social Media or a Shadow Waiting to Emerge?


In the last few years, it has seemed like the internet has given birth to a culture of mental health romanization. Now whether you have seen this on tumblr, Instagram or now TikTok, it does seem rather strange. Because in recent years there has been so much success by those speaking out to reduce the stigma associated with mental health. While it is fair to judge that many of these people, would have had close experiences with mental health themselves. Yet there has been a significant, maybe unconscious, movement in the other direction, generally by those also likely to have experienced it. ‘But does this not at least mean that it will get more people talking?

Including as newts, while probably getting as pissed as one! But of course, it is going to be expensive. Very expensive.

But this year, even with unlikely prospect of families offering up a lot of money, we have another limitation. Covid-19. Meaning that our gap year would most likely be spent watching everyone else go off to university while we are stuck at home. Sigh…
