Looking back on my degree. What’s next?

Hello hello

I haven’t blogged in the past few months, because I couldn’t find the time anymore with the amount of work I had to do for uni. I had my final year dissertation to write, and damn that was stressful (as well as a lot of work)! It’s probably been the most stressful year of my life, very overwhelming. But I’m back now, because the year, and more importantly my degree is over, and I am freeeeee.

I Don’t Want Children

To anyone who knows me personally, this is probably a conversation we’ve had together, or you’ve understood it by the lack of empathy I have for children. I’ve never been a big fan of children nor have I ever found them particularly cute, but I feel like it’s gotten even worse in the past year. Seeing a baby makes me more uncomfortable than anything, and I have no idea what to say to a child. I don’t feel like the conversation would be beneficial to anyone, so why bother. I know my sister wants children, and when she has them I’m sure I’ll love them very much, but as soon as they cry or smell, they’re going back to her or my brother-in-law in a heartbeat.

Why I Started Blogging

I started my blog one and a half years ago, during exam period of my second year at university. It’s something I did quite spontaneously; I was bored and figured ‘why not?’ I didn’t have a particular interest in writing, and to be honest I wasn’t much of a reader either so I didn’t really think about blogging long term, but it’s something I wanted to try out in that moment. 

The idea had already been suggested to me a few months earlier by my flatmate, in relation to me being vegan, but I laughed and replied that I would never actually start one, I didn’t think I had anything to say and my main thought was “what if no one reads it?”

Minimal Waste: Solid Shampoo

Ever since I went vegan, I’ve become more and more aware of the amount of waste we produce, and I’ve been looking for ways to reduce that little by little. I started by buying a reusable water bottle to avoid buying plastic ones, purchased reusable period pads (will soon buy the cup!), been given reusable straws and biodegradable bamboo toothbrushes. Every little bit counts, and on the long run, it makes a real difference.
I know when we talk about minimal waste and wanting to act more consciously, we have this little feeling of panic because we don’t know where to start, we feel pressured to do it all at once and often end up not doing anything at all. You don’t need to do it all at once if you don’t want to, you can start with any product! How about with your shampoo?

Scars are Beautiful

A few months ago, Unapologetically Angie wrote a beautiful post concerning her scars. It’s inspired me to write my own and share my story (you can read her blog post here). 
I’ve never known my body without my scars, as I had them as a baby. At 9 months-old I caught the chicken pocks, which was not surprising living with older siblings and cousins who had them as well. However, it quickly developed into a staph infection (staphylococcus), which is a bacteria that often and easily enters open wounds. I, of course, do not remember any of this happening to me, so the few details I know are based on what I’ve been told.

Something I love about the blogging community is being able to discover new blogs about any topic and finding like-minded writers.
