‘I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do.’

Frida Kahlo

I am feeling rather flawed and broken today. Like when the pieces of a jigsaw do not fit correctly or when a piece is missing entirely. I want this day to pass so that a brighter new day can come upon me, and hopefully I can have a better day. One small step at a time in this journey of life.


3 deadlines this week. Actually 4 but I’ve completed one of them.

Currently feeling extremely overwhelmed by my Honours Project work. Everyone keeps telling me that I can do it, and just to face things one at a time. However this is difficult to acknowledge when I have a 2000 word project proposal, final ethics draft and a poster presentation to hand in, all within two days.

Someone please tell me it gets easier? I risk falling apart under this immense pressure and waking up 7 days from now a completely broken woman.
