Type one Diabetes and Anorexia are two conditions i have, but they are not adjectives.
I am defined by the choices I make, which as with every life will include lows and highs. This blog is where I chart some of it, and if you have come along for the walk i admire your patience and perseverance!
Oh, and on a final note - Millie says hi x

Made my first ever Ebay sale on my own account!

Caught the bug now :Pย 

We’ll even if I do get transferred to the Creative Writing course, I am still £60 poorer… Can’t take the risk of not having read any of the Modernism texts, there are NINE! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™Š 
Reasoning that they are books I would/should read at some point down the line, so keep calm and carry on ๐Ÿ‘
I need to recreate this! 
Embarking on my first online guitar ‘lesson’ - so excited/nervous aha :) I’m worried my fingers aren’t long enough! Then again, I survived piano, so positive thoughts.
Do any guitarists have any words of wisdom they could offer?! 

Writing Possibility: Capturing Cambodia: Temple Time

My first post on the temples in Cambodia! Includes LOTS of photos, in addition to an example of diabetes’ delightful escapades ๐Ÿ™ˆ

The more I think about having to cook at uni, the more I am thinking โ€œsod age-old diabetes notions about โ€œproper, balancedโ€ meals.
If I want beans and jacket potato for dinner, I will jolly well have it!
Iโ€™ve never had beans and jacket before (avec cheese obviously)โ€ฆ so many things were just subconsciously red-lighted when I was 7. So many - I would write a list but I honestly feel I could be here for hours!
It will take time to address them all - maybe some will never be picked up on. Nonetheless - little by little, one travels far.

Anonymous said: Why are you selling your protein powder?

There was a mix-up with ordering and I ordered the wrong one ๐Ÿ™ˆ ordered that “natural vanilla” instead of the standard one - I didn’t realise there were two options! ๐Ÿ˜
I really did enjoy the sample sachet of the normal, whereas the big pack I got was just not nice - strange aftertaste. Deallt frustrating ๐Ÿ˜Œ but, in being proactive! I contacted their customer service to explain what happened, and they offered me a discount on a future order.
I’ve listed mine on eBay, as only 50g of the 1kg has been used; at the price I’ve listed in, and what I’ve seen on eBay, I’m reasonably confident I can get it shifted! I won’t make back all the money I spent, but the MyProtein stuff wasn’t anywhere near as expensive as most stuff out there, so I’m not too anxious. With the discount applied next time, I should *fingerscrossed* almost break even!
