15 Things I Didn’t know at Fifteen

I’ve been doing some self-reflection after having a conversation with a friend from high school. We dug up our cringest messages and memories and had a good laugh together about how immature and innocent we once were. It’s crazy to think how fast time flies, and how different my life is now at 24 in comparison to the life I thought I would have when I was 15. So here are 15 things I wish I could tell my fifteen-year-old self: You need to stop looking at yourself in the mirror every morning be

Living alone in London (when you have anxiety)

I’ve been struggling with anxiety for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid, my anxiety was labelled as shyness, and I was constantly told that I would ‘grow out of it one day’. Now at 24, I can confirm that I never did. I just learned to accept and live with it. One thing I’ve discovered is that I get less anxious when I’m doing things by myself because chances are nobody is paying attention to me, and if anything goes wrong, I won’t be judged. And when I moved to London last year, I dec

At home, when she was wearing her matching pyjamas sets without any makeup on, she’d smell like mum. I couldn’t describe that smell; I just knew it was nice b
