Single mum at University: My Story (PART TWO)

Read Part One here. I arrived at university expecting to learn how to be smart. I remember feeling intimidated at the prospect of interacting with people who were much more intelligent than me.

Why I’ve never written a love story

Do you like reading about romance? I’ve never been tempted by the idea of writing love stories, something about fairy tale endings never rang true for me and this was due to the relationships I had witnessed and been a part of. I like the idea of Happy Ever After but in reality I struggled…

You need to hear this!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I am passionate about a little more than writing.

Mature Student: Third Year Glory

I didn’t expect that university life would be a journey I embark on at this point in my life, or one I would be so damn proud of. I attempted sixth form but after a random bout of bullying (or “friends” shit-stirring and using me as a scapegoat) I ditched the idea of education and…
