Dating Disaster: Bike Ride Edition

It's a warm early summer's day, the sky is cloudless, and you're cycling down the canal path alongside a pretty girl. Sounds like a dream date, right?

A Year of Blogging and Procrastinating

Some of my favourite posts to read by other bloggers were those about their first year of blogging. Reading about other people's wins always gave me a wee serotonin boost as well as giving me some much needed inspiration for what my own blog could potentially accomplish. I read those posts and thought to myself... Continue Reading →

It's been quiet on the blog the past few months, the reason being that things with my girlfriend ended and I was completely devastated. The breakup was so unexpected and it... Continue Reading →

Coming Out: Self Acceptance

Everyone shares their experiences of coming out to family and friends and we all know how difficult it can be but what you don't see a lot of is the stories of how people came out to themselves. Everyone's journey is different, some people have always known their sexuality and accepted it, others have known... Continue Reading →
