How We Police Our Culture And We Need To Stop This Shit (361/365)

If I had a pound for every time my Black or Somali card got revoked I would be a multi-millionnaire.. ok maybe that's an overreaction but it gets revoked on the daily. I gave up trying to practice my personality in a way that was complicit with the Black and Somali people around me years … Continue reading How We Police Our Culture And We Need To Stop This Shit (361/365)

Bandwagon Diversity Isn’t Real Diversity (360/365)

If a brand or a celebrity has suddenly decided to give a shit about minority rights in a way that is unnatural, then unfortunately they're jumping on acceptance of everyone as if it's a fad.

Why I Don’t Really Set New Years Resolutions (352/365)

I remember earlier in the decade whenever December would come around I would panic and realise that every resolution I had set had been ignored and I would feel a lot of shame. I didn't drink more water, go to the gym, go to museums or read more and even though I never announced these … Continue reading Why I Don’t Really Set New Years Resolutions (352/365)

Cutting Down On Chocolate Is So Difficult (351/365)

I wrote a post earlier this year concerning migraines and common triggers, and from what I can remember I did mention how chocolate is a major trigger and sadly one of my main ones.

Reflecting On How I was This Time Last Year(350/365)

A sea of reflection posts is inevitable at this point, there's 15 days left of this challenge and not only are we reminiscing because it's the end of a long year, but it's also the end of a decade.

My Twenties Are My Lost Childhood (349/365)

It must be because I'm the oldest girl in an immigrant household, but I didn't really have a childhood in the sense of bliss, innocence and freedom. I was, like most girls in my situation made to clean and babysit, I was responsible for everyone if my mother went out or wasn't feeling well. I … Continue reading My Twenties Are My Lost Childhood (349/365)

Sometimes You Have To Accept You’re Surrounded By Racists #GeneralElection (347/365)

Like many I woke up today gutted with the news that not only did the Conservatives win, but they won by a landslide. Many areas like Wales, Stoke and up North switched to voting Tory and not only was it shocking but it forced a lot of us to accept that the silent majority hold … Continue reading Sometimes You Have To Accept You’re Surrounded By Racists #GeneralElection (347/365)
