Monthly Roundup – April 2018

Monthly Roundup – April 2018

The fourth month of 2018 is almost up, brace yourself for Justin Timberlake memes from every corner of the internet over the coming days. I thought i’d start writing monthly overviews, partly because its nice to look back on the highs (and maybe lows) of each month, and partly because i’m nosy as shit and love reading them, so I figured you, dear reader, might feel the same way.

When did you become you?

When did you become you?

Hi, i’m Hannah. I’m a 25 year-old London-dweller who loves cats and plants very much. My favourite foods are pizza and pasta, although I almost never allow myself to eat them, and my day job involves me knowing an awful lot about pensions.

How to beat Sunday evening anxiety

How to beat Sunday evening anxiety

Many of us feel it, that creeping sense of dread that accompanies the sun’s descent on Sunday evening. The knowledge that tomorrow we’ll be back in the office, possibly stressed, possibly facing situations we weren’t quite prepared for. The pressure to get a good night’s sleep and become mentally ready for the week ahead is on. It’s exhausting.
