If you are graduating soon or thinking about ‘adulting,’ have a read. … More Life After Undergrad 10: No longer an undergrad
It has been almost nearly 3 weeks since I wrote a blog post. There are several reasons for this, which are all kind of boring so I won’t bother mentioning them. Instead I will try to remember what I have been doing these past couple of weeks. Since my last blog post, when my … More A Girl And Her Guide Dog #7: A quick, long overdue, update!
I don’t want to regress in my career, but will I regret rushing into it too? Essentially first world problems in a blog post, have a read if you are interested in my corporate life ramblings! … More Life After Undergrad 9: realities of full time – the makings of a quarter life crisis to come?
It’s been a few days…oops! Sunday was rather uneventful. I love cold, rainy Sundays. Although now that I have to take somebody outside early in the morning and then at least twice during the day…they’re somewhat less cosy. But it was good. My friend, who has always been known on the blog as Mabel, came … More A Girl And Her Guide Dog #6: My Life Is A Sitcom (or…OUCH!)
Yes I’m posting on Saturday night. When all the normal 23 year olds. are busy having social lives.

It has been a weird couple … More A Girl And Her Guide Dog #5: I’m Too Old For This
I meant to blog about day 3 as it was rather eventful…but yesterday afternoon/evening/night I was so mentally drained that I couldn’t even keep my eyes open long enough to watch a youtube video. Let alone put my day into words. We’ve been to Uni and back twice now! Once walking to the station and … More A Girl And Her Guide Dog #4: Progress???
Day 2. What happened? I’ve dealt with 3 dog poos now. That’s 3 (three) dog poos. Yes, I know, for all you people who have been looking after dogs for years and years that’s laughable. But for me…well…its impressive. Although, to watch me you wouldn’t think I was handling it very well. After she toileted … More A Girl And Her Guide Dog #3: Getting Acquainted (or…I am a moron)
I don’t really know where to start with day 1… I am so tired. Which may seem pathetic, but honestly. I am wrecked. Jemima the dog has to be right next to me all the time. Every second. Of every hour. Of every day. Except when she’s asleep at night in the laundry. I just … More A Girl And Her Guide Dog #2: Please Welcome To The Stage…Jemima
I’ve never really loved dogs. The truth is I’m a bit of a princess and I don’t really enjoy being licked or jumped on or getting dog hair and saliva all over my clothes. When I was little I desperately wanted a dog, but as I got older I realised I’m not actually a … More A Girl and Her Guide Dog #1: The Story Begins )AKA a Really Long Post)
I normally steer clear of fantasy. I probably shouldn’t. But it just isn’t what I gravitate towards. This book however grabbed my attention straight away. I’ll let the blurb do the explaining…blurbs always do a much better job of explaining than I can. What if you aren’t the Chosen One?
