I can’t believe its been 30 days already, well more than 30 seeing as i’ve missed so many days (sorry haha). Honestly I’ve had such an amazing time doing this challenge, although I feel like my writing hasn’t improved i’m hopeful that it will come with time.
What I’ve learnt
Taking part in this challenge was definitely an eye opener for me, although i’ve always been interested in writing i’ve never really taken it seriously as such. Over the past 30 days i’ve learnt that if I want to see any progression or improvement I need to be consistent and open to anything. There’s a lot of topics I’ve shied away from in the past due to the fear of being judges and whatnot.
However most of these questions have really forced me to be to be honest with myself. How can anyone accept me if I can’t even accept me?
My plan is to keep utilising this blog to the best of my ability.
Although I won’t be posting everyday, I’m hoping to keep on top of my new segment ‘Tunes on a Tuesday’, I love music so I think this would be a good starting point for me. In addition to this I will be posting on Fridays also. Not 100% sure what the postings on Friday’s will be about but i’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.
Ok, so I’ve completely ignored the requirements for today’s post but I just want to say thank you to the new followers I’ve gained over the last 30 days. Here’s to the next 30 *Raises glass*

This is probably a really weird and confusing guest list but each of these people have knowledge in a particular subject area that I would love to learn more about.
(Please don’t judge my menu! I live off snacks as opposed to meals, so it was really hard to create anything)
There’s a lot of things that spring to mind when I think about this topic, which makes it a pretty touch question to answer.
I don’t want to get too deep and emotional on here so I’ll go with something basic for now.
I miss my childhood.
Although I can’t remember much of it, I do recall the general feeling of being carefree and happy.
If only I could go back in time and just relive those moments and learn to appreciate them a bit more.
As the saying goes, “You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.
When we get older we lose those seemingly childhood qualities and forget what it feels like to actually enjoy and love life.
I would say that a problem I have had & still have to a certain extent, is to do with self confidence (well the lack of).
I’ve aways been a reserved person but this was highlighted even more when I went to Uni. I found it quite hard to make friends & push myself out of my comfort zone, which in turn led to me being rather lonely.
This is probably when the self confidence issues started to creep in.
When you are alone 95% of the time, it becomes so easy to get trapped in your own head & be consumed by self destructive thoughts.
There would be times where I wouldn’t leave my room for days due to crippling social anxiety & the fear of being judged on my appearance.
I still find it quite hard to socialise with people, especially those I don’t know but I’m not as bad as I used to be.
The first thing I would do is buy 3 houses.
1 for my parents, 1 for myself and the last for a little project I’ve always wanted to work on.
For the longest time I have always had a desire to help the homeless. After watching a documentary (can’t remember what it’s called), I realised just how hard it is for the homeless to get back on their feet. Even a little thing like having an address would help out a lot.
So with the third house, the perfect scenario would be to have a place where the homeless (4 at any one time during the year), would be able to have a place to call their own. This will in turn provide an actual address, enabling the residents to apply for jobs further gaining some independence.
I doubt I would have any money left after that!
If I do however, I would split the rest between investing into my own business and travelling to all the countries I have yet to discover.
