A number of reasons I’ve been less depressed lately

It’s no secret that this winter has been a tough one, and I feel like I have complained my fair share about it in this blog… but I guess I am about to do it some more. I have struggled with anxiety for some years now (arguably since my childhood, but we won’t cite my…

Remembering Italy on Film

I’ve been feeling rather nostalgic lately. Enjoying the memories of days past, because looking forward to the days ahead feels impossible. Planning little things to break down the months and the never ending strand of working days used to be my most efficient tool to make myself happy (or, in the winter, to simply keep…

One insignificant girl in Segovia

Last Friday Fletcher and I took a break from the family festivities and headed to Segovia with my mum’s car. It was sunny and warm and I was happy because Fletcher was driving and I was just giving directions. – On the next one go up.– Up where?– Up, up! That’s down (points left) and…

An Ode to my Adolescent Self

I have seen a lot of posts about “all the things I wish I knew when I was younger”, “things I wish I could tell my teenage self”… you get the idea. I do wish that I could go back in time and give my past self couple of big hugs here and there, but…
