A Journey of Self-Healing

Hopefully I can get through this entry without apologising for being behind in blog posts, for being ill and so on because the fact is none of it is something I have control over. While I wish I’d been better at blogging or been able to work on other projects, the fact is my health comes first and cutting down my to do list has been difficult in that respect. It’s been over a month since my last hospital appointment, an appointment which effectively saw a horrible doctor dump everything in my lap and tell me that my all over agonisingly painful glands were allRead More →

World of Warcraft: Legion

    Legion is ever so close and so I figured now would be a good time to revisit my Pre-Legion Bucket List. This is my first blog post this month, and an easy one to get me back into the swing of things. I’ve had my exams, and have one more resit assignment due on 5th Sepember. I’ve actually managed to get a lot more of my Bucket list complete than I expected because I’ve been super ill. While there’s been several days in bed/on the couch, the majority of the time it’s much easier for me to be doing something to keep myRead More →

Spoonies R Us

The week started out to a tremendous start; an all day migraine. Bleurgh. I alternated between the bed and the couch, just about managing to binge watch TV (see what I’m watching here!). I finally managed to get to the doctors and talked through some things, including altering my migraine medication. Unfortunately that comes with the side effect of making me very sleepy – something that probably isn’t helped by the fact that I’m trying to sort my sleeping pattern in preparation for my exams. I have two exam dates so far and they’re both morning 🙁 At the moment my days are starting atRead More →

Return of the blog

Everything has been quiet here at the RW Blog due to an unexpected emergency resulting in a trip down to London. Everyone is ok, and now it’s time to get back to normal. Which for me means starting studying. I’d hoped to start in May, but too much was going on and it just wasn’t possible. I still have two months, which is plenty of time, I just want to make sure I use it wisely. Despite my illness messing up my normal progression and dissertation plans, I have been very thankful for it. I needed the time to worry about important things, and helpRead More →

Goodbye April

April is that one part of the year that I’m always glad to see the back of. I’m not sure when it started, it’s been this way since I was a kid. In some ways it is/was great; there was always a 2-3 week holiday, but then came the exams or end of term assignments. Not to mention April’s weather is always completely off the charts. It is always wet and wild, and then Spring starts to appear only to be buried under a pile of snow. Usually, it’s the last snow of the year, sometimes there’s a bit in May, but yes, April representsRead More →
