Oh it's that time again, when everyone's deciding they'll "overhaul their lives" in 2017, I used to buy into that rubbish but it would just leave me feeling guilty and hollow. So I started thinking about practical resolutions that will make my life better. Here's what I want to achieve next year:

Was an absolute n00b on the tube.
I'm sorry London but it had been 4 and a half years!
Met my internet little sister Rosie and we explored Camden together.
We hugged pretty much all day, took all the ridiculous Snapchats and ate all the amazing food
Found the most amazing used bookstore in Camden Locke,
I could've wandered round it all day just picking up old classics and adding things to my wishlist.
I want to live there,
Saw lots of pretty, amazing, ridiculous and hipster things in Camden
Dragged my pals to the Palace Theatre.
I had to see the theatre that is being transformed for the UK production of Hamilton.
Yes I cried. Twice.
Got properly Burrito'd with Gem.
Finally after 6 years of fangirling and being top banter we got to go get drunk and eat mexican
food together. Of course we also fangirled and were top banter. Very on brand.

I've not been blogging here much recently, but where have I been? Well darling, I've been elsewhere. Time for a catch up, yes?
Exactly 4 years ago today I "gave up blogging". As you can tell that didn't really work out. In fact it was such a bare faced lie that I started a new blog that exact same night. I do that a lot with my blogs, I close myself in and when I begin branching out and having a million opinions (every day), they don't fit my space. I've felt like that countless times in the last 7 years and it's creeping back in. But this time I'm not abandoning ship.
For the last 3 years this blog has been a whole myriad of things to me, my personal diary, a vehicle, an escape, a place to be ridiculous and deadly serious all at the same time. I've not posted here for a while, but I'm thrilled to have written for sone amazing publications recently and wanted to point you all (5 of you probably) in the right direction.
- The big driving force in my new move was Femsplain, where I not only wrote "You're My Thinspo", but also discovered an amazing supportive group of people who just get me.
- Through the Femsplain group I discovered Ask Me About My Uterus and was able to tell my story, I'm 27 and I Want A Hysterectomy. The response to this piece was completely overwhelming and I'm so thankful to those who shared their experiences and offered advice.
- Then off the back of that piece I was asked to become a regular writer for another great feminist site, The Tempest! My first pieces with them will be up shortly and I'll be sure to share them everywhere.
- And finally just today I became part of The Establishment with Is My Friend Still Bisexual? And even more exciting is that my words became an infographic!
This post is in no way a goodbye, I still need a space to rant and spaff off about things I love after all. But while I love blogging, I'm enjoying making the transition more from personal lifestyle blogger to actual writer who has a sort of real job (eek!).
If you want to keep in touch be sure to follow me on Twitter for daily rage and Hamilton fangirling.
I also write on Medium too.
