A Bitter Truth

14th July 2020

I’ve been umming and ahhing about writing this post, as I was unsure as to how it would come across to the masses, due to the nature of the content and such, but as I sit here trying not to let the sadness wash over me, I feel compelled to journal the inner turmoil and […]

‘FAT’ is NOT a bad word.

14th June 2020

In the early hours of this morning, something really interesting happened. At around 12:30 am, as I was undertaking my nightly Tik Tok scroll to catch a few laughs before bed, I noticed that my friend Sofie had tagged me in a Tik Tok post featuring my ICON Lizzo. As I watched the video, I […]

Nerd About Town is Gone.

30th September 2019

So this has been a really long time coming. Something I’ve put off for about three years, as I didn’t feel ready to do it, but know we’ve arrived here and…it is what it is. A little bit of a rebrand innit? As you can see by the change of URL and website, I am […]

Turning 30…A Three Month Update

31st August 2019

So I mean…it’s okay?? While still in my twenties (wowow feels weird to say), I often remonstrated the fact that I was due to turn 30 soon. Did this mean I needed anti-aging products now? Had I checked off everything on the ‘to-do’ list I created when I was 15? Why was I not yet […]
