Here's something a *tiny* bit different... As many of you know, (because I talk of nothing else) I'm just about to finish my Masters' in Creative Writing. I'm currently tying the last knots in my dissertation, and as part of my project I have started to turn my poems into a series of vignettes. The poem is transcribed below - in film, I wanted to capture her inner turmoil in a physical way. I would really love your thoughts, and for you to let me know how it made you feel. Thank you. ❀

The night before last, I finished my Masters' dissertation. A year ago to that day, I accepted my offer to study at Birmingham. Today, I'm back in the same room, tucked up in a hotel in Bath where I received my acceptance email at 1am in the morning.
I'm exhausted and emotionally spent, yet I wouldn't change anything about the past year. All that's left now is to proof, edit, and print my thesis. πŸ˜ΆπŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŽ“βœ¨(This isn't the hotel room. It's just a pretty road in Bath. I can confirm that my room has both walls and a ceiling).

Exploring the very pretty architecture with my eyes during our teeny-tiny getaway in Bath. Sorry for the absolute nonsense absence for over a week...it's nice to be looking at things other than my dissertation! πŸ“Έ using my @aukeyofficial lens (ty @mattfsrocks)

It's Monday. You got through it. Here's a teeny-tiny puppy to celebrate (it's my brother and sister-in-law's and I can't actually deal with how beautiful she is). β€’β€’β€’

Bravery is alive in so many things. Right now, it's with me in two forms: in vanity (by choosing to wear red lipstick then eat tomato soup with a white shirt on), but more importantly, it's sown into my spirit. It's alive in letting myself fall for someone; in writing my Masters' dissertation to help fight against CSE; and in continuing to battle against my own mental illnesses every day. I've wanted a @thegivingkeys necklace for a while, but until recently I didn't know what word to choose - then I saw 'Brave'. If you want to know more about the brand and their story, click through to their profile. It's brave in itself, as they support those transitioning out of homelessness. And if you've made it this far, tell me where you see bravery in your life. Let's start a conversation. ❀

You may think that I'm wearing that t-shirt dress again. You would be very correct. Happy Friday, guys - what've you got planned this weekend? 😘❀

Earlier today I completed the first draft creative extract for my dissertation (all 13,000 words of it). It's a huge milestone (even though there's still another 7,000 in theory to go) but I'm taking some time to appreciate this achievement (and drink some cider). #grafting #fulltimeloveislandertoo Hope you have had a fabulous day, too 😘
