I’ve been avoiding the mental health conversations recently, and here’s why. Continue reading Why I’m Not Joining In The Mental Health Conversation
I was absolutely miserable, but there are a few things you can do to make it worth sticking out. Continue reading Why I Hated Uni, And The Things That Made It Bearable
So since I’ve been busy wading through my Guiding life, and ignoring the rest of life, I am going to apologise by presenting you with a new ‘subdivision’ of ‘Kirsty Through The Looking Glass’, which I have, rather creatively, named ‘WATCH ME ONCE!’ (or WMO for convenience). This is going to be a series of short, spoiler free promotions/reviews of all the movies which I feel that you should watch at least once in your life. Maybe because they are brilliant, or thought provoking. Or maybe it’s a movie which is so bad that it’s funny. I’m not saying that … Continue reading WMO: Chatroom
“My daughter, she’s 45 now. She looks out for me. Well sometimes. Sometimes she looks out for me, you know? My sons though, her brothers, I don’t know anymore. 5 years. They don’t want anything to do with me. Maybe they’re dead but I don’t worry about it anymore. Why bother?” *** Regardless of the fact that I was at the bus station in time for the 4:30 bus today, something held me back. Today I decided to get the later bus, minimise the amount of time I’d sit next to a stranger in traffic. This decision lead to 3 … Continue reading When Life Hands You A Drunk Make Conversationade.
The latest Twitter trend shocking the world is #Cut4Bieber. Supposedly started off as a prank, the idea was to get ‘Beliebers’ (die hard Justin Bieber fangirls) to cut themselves after an unproved rumour that the singer was caught smoking a joint. As news of the trend spread, non-Beliebers far and wide started to mock them. “If you’re #cutting4bieber why don’t you just cut a little deeper?” one girl on my Twitter wrote. Self harm is not a joke. Suicide is not a joke. Now this may be the unpopular thing to do, but I’m away to jump to the defense of the … Continue reading #Don’tCutForAnyone
This post may seem a slightly heartless, or a little controversial, or may not be what you expect to see, but it’s something I feel quite strongly about. So if you’re not happy with what you’re reading, just go away. Social networks have been going crazy this week over the story of Amanda Todd, a young naive Canadian girl who made a “stupid mistake” and was, quite literally, tormented to death by it. Worldwide people have been letting this girl into their hearts, with words of support flooding in : “I would’ve tried to save her if I’d known her when … Continue reading One In A Million.
If you’re not already familiar with the music videos for ‘Perfect’ and ‘Stupid Girls’ by P!nk, take less than 10 minutes out of your life right now ; -Perfect. – Stupid Girls. Now explain to me why, even after much censoring (that’s the censored version) Perfect has been banned from so many different places, yet Stupid Girls hasn’t? People got themselves worked up surrounding the displays of self harm in Perfect after the release of the uncensored video, yet there are blatant displays of bulimia in the Stupid Girls video and nobody seemed to bat an eyelid? Is it because … Continue reading Stupid Girls > Perfectionists?
