The overthinker, featuring awkwardness and beauty

The first day anywhere is usually one filled with horrific presumptions for someone like me. There’s the staring and the second-guessing and the need to belong to people who you have just met for the first time.

Hello my doves.

So, I’ve been prompted time and again to write about a topic that I really refuse to acknowledge.

As you were filling that University Application and they asked… Continue reading #Let’s get radical: To religious people, you are not Clark Kent

Pretty hurts?… Does it really?

Cindy stood outside the school gate waiting for Angie so that they could go home together. The sun was setting into an orange horizon and it was clearly getting late. Cindy’s mum would definitely be outside their gate waiting to embrace her with a thorough caning because she was late. Why did this always happen… Continue reading Pretty hurts?… Does it really?
