Boycott Boyfriends 2015

The latest instalment of, ‘My Therapist Gave Me An Assignment: Write about Your Ex’ I’m on this no boyfriend kick right now. It’s a really strict diet.

Life in 2D: Why Are Video Games Still So Sexist?

  While watching a friend of mine play the latest version of Metal Gear Solid, the Phantom Pain, I discovered the game’s primary female protagonist, Quiet. Quiet, as the name suggests, is quiet. She does not speak, but, despite this and her lack of attire, she is a skilled assassin, accompanying Snake on missions throughout...

The second instalment of, ‘My Therapist Gave Me An Assignment- Write About Your Ex’  I kid you not, I was (basically) five hair cuts away from shaving my hair off and attacking an uber van after replaying my breakup over and over in my head.

My Therapist Gave Me an Assignment: Write About Your Ex

Breakups are really hard. Like REALLY hard. Mine, (at times I’m scared to say) caused me to re-enter therapy. Therapy– especially for people like me, is a super good thing, but why I decided to re-join the psychiatry game makes me feel a bit embarrassed. I’ve been seeing my therapist every other week for three...
