What I’ve been reading #9

I finished The Life and Death of Sophie Stark recently and I loved it! The story of a mysterious film director, Sophie Stark, it is told from the point of view of the people that cared about her at some point (exes, her brother, her husband, etc.). She isn't very good with personal relationships and... Continue Reading →

Resolutions 2017

I am so late with coming up with New Years Resolutions that I have probably already broken a few of them. Come on Laura, get it together! This year I hope to make some headway in feeling a bit more like a grown up. 1. CAREER I started out this year with the aim of... Continue Reading →


Last year I wrote how I wasn't going to freak out about my 24th birthday. Age is just a number, I have still grown up a bit blah blah blah. At the beginning of this year I turned 25. 25! Now I am not exactly freaking out about it, I'm just slightly surprised that I,... Continue Reading →

Something to Aim For

Last week I was a bit hard on myself for being lazy. I was half-heartedly applying for jobs, half-heartedly plodding along with NaNoWriMo (nowhere near 50k, but I'm still going with it), and thinking of blog post ideas but not really doing anything about it. There were a couple of evenings when I got in... Continue Reading →

It’s Too Dark!

​This year I have well and truly gotten used to waking up early. Useful, but I would like it if I could get up a little bit later on the weekdays. I particularly think this in the winter because it is basically night time when I leave the house. I also have to be getting... Continue Reading →


I went to a Halloween House Crawl a few weeks ago and I enjoyed it way more than I thought I might. Apart from the fun of dressing up and drinking maybe a little bit too much, parties with people the same age as me are quite enjoyable because we get it. When we ask... Continue Reading →
