Me, Em

Hey, thanks for stopping by.

I started this blog in 2015, after deciding that I wanted to embark on a new writing venture to go with the new chapter of my life that was beginning after a eye-opening couple of years. When I first started out, I wasn’t really sure what direction my writing would take me in. To be honest, I’m still not really sure where I’m headed, but so far it seems that I mostly share stories about my own struggles with mental health problems and any advice I feel that I can share from everything that I’ve learned. It’s been one hell of a journey to recovery and I want to thank everyone who has been so supportive throughout this difficult time in my life.

In September 2016 I returned to my studies at university and I’m starting to see my life really come together again. Of course this isn’t without its own challenges, but things are looking better now than ever before. As my confidence continues to grow, I’m hoping that this blog will grow with it and I’ll begin to feel able to discuss more of the topics I feel passionate about.

A bit more about me…

I’m 24 years old and I live in Manchester. I love to write, travel and indulge in open and honest conversation with just about anyone, particularly when it comes to mental health, LGBTQ+ and feminist issues. I’m studying a degree in Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies and I love all things Mexico, especially the food. To be honest, I just love food in general. My other passions include reading, yoga and knitting.

If you want to know anything else, feel free to get in touch and chat. I’m always up for getting to know new people!

Love, Emily x
