We wear personas like coats, shrugging them on in the morning for work, tugging them tight as we meet new people, lugging them around “just in case”. Why do we do this? Because we like to be liked. But are we doing more harm than good by trying to ‘fake it til we make it’. Continue reading Oh No…Liking To Be Liked is Bad For You?
I turned 26 recently; I wasn’t that bothered at first but then it hit me…I am now the wrong side of 25. I am now closer to 30 than I am 20 and that, boys and girls, is pretty terrifying.

At 22, you’re still carefree, closer to 20 than 30, have little responsibility, and it is still socially acceptable to eat a diet that mainly consists of Dominos, McDonald’s and KFC.

September, as I know it, isn’t a very exciting month. It’s back to school season, end of festival season and the beginning of horrible weather season. But September 2012 was alright. On August 30th, one of my best friends gave birth to the most beautiful baby girl I’ve ever set my sights on.
