Never feel bad for expressing your emotions on social media: a rant

In order to get to the main chunk of this post, we’re going to have to embark on a little story time. So grab a cuppa, a bar of choccie, a pizza, a roast dinner – whatever your vice is and join me in story time with Jenny on why you shouldn’t feel bad for expressing your emotions on social media.

I Don’t Drink. So What?

Christmas was a time to ‘eat drink and be merry!’. New Year was also a time to drink to the future – and to the past – to new starts and new memories. But what if, like me, you don’t drink? (Alcohol I’m talking about here, not just liquid in general. If that was the case, I probably wouldn’t be here writing this blog post). Before Christmas, I took my frustrations to Twitter (as we so often do these days) and the reactions and replies I received prompted and inspired this blog post and I wanted to think and talk about alcohol. Why I don’t drink it, why it’s okay not to drink it and why oh why some people look at you like you’ve got 3 heads when you tell them that actually, it’s Christmas and I’m still not going to have a drink.

Blogtober Round-up & My Feelings on Blogging Right Now

So we’ve made it to the end of blogtober and the first word that springs to mind is ‘phew’. This post is going to be a bit rambly, a bit ranty and a bit all over the place, as we’ve reached the end of October and probably my most active blogging month ever since the beginning, I have a lot of thoughts about blogging right now and about my own blog and just about how things are going that I’d like to write down and get off my chest. This post won’t be all miserable and ranty, I’ll try and include some good points, too.

My Response To a Very Stupid Question

Is There Any Point of Getting Diagnosed if You Don’t Want Drugs for Treatment?

So I can’t quite believe that a question such as this even exists therefore I can’t quite believe I’m taking time out of my busy day to write a post and an answer to such a question. I saw this on Twitter, via Reddit or something (I’ve never used Reddit in my life) and it angered me so much that I felt compelled to write something about it. If you know me, you will know I rarely feel ‘angered’ to the point of going full on blog rant about something (the last time I did this was my post on What’s the Point of Book Reviews?) but this is something that needs to be addressed.
