Money Talk – How I Make Money Without A Fixed Address.

The one thing that I get asked time and time again, is how I make money if I live on the road. “That’s all very nice for you, BUT I HAVE BILLS TO PAY” has been said to me more times than I can count. “Don’t you feel bad about sponging off society?” (Another favourite.)Continue reading “Money Talk – How I Make Money Without A Fixed Address.”

Setting Healthy Boundaries With Social Media

It’s far too easy to get addicted to social media. That’s why I haven’t posted anything on the blog for the past couple of weeks.

Take a Deep Breath: The World Isn’t Ending

It’s easy to feel like the world is ending.  Climate Change, Deforestation, COVID, Political upheaval… need I go on? Since being a child, I have felt sick to the bone about these things.  ‘I was born at the end of the world.’ I used to think to myself. ‘How terrifying.’ It’s completely valid to feelContinue reading “Take a Deep Breath: The World Isn’t Ending”

How to Know if You Are Being Abused in a Relationship

Four years ago, I  lay in bed and googled: ‘am I being abused?’ The first article that I stumbled upon said this: ‘If you are googling this question, then the answer is probably yes.’  I wouldn’t be able to find that same article again now.
