Getting Started on Journalism

I knew from a young age that I loved writing and overtime I realised that I wanted to become a Journalist and I know there are other budding journalists such as myself who wants to become one. Personally, I like to write about personal experiences, entertainment, lifestyle, etc, and there are different types of journalists you can become, you have to see which kind fits you. Research is key. The first thing you can do

My Experience With University Applications

It’s that stressful time of year when you have to start on your university/college applications. I have currently been down this road as the entirety of last month for me was all about university applications and picking universities that were suitable towards me and that I liked the look of. I live in the UK, so applying for university might be different to how people apply in different countries, I know in some states in

My Experience Dealing with Depersonalization

It’s hard writing about mental illnesses, especially when you’re going through them yourselves, but don’t think that you’re the only one who feels like this. For a few years, I have been through extreme forms of anxiety and depression as well as going through an existential crisis. So, in commemoration of National Mental Health Day, I want to say that I am dealing with something called Depersonalization and Derealization. I haven’t told many people that

Girl Code Doesn’t Exist… Well, Not The Type That You’re Thinking

I think it’s okay to date your best friend’s ex and not let the rules of girl code ruin and rule your friendships, so imagine this: your best friend has broken up with her ex and she’s hurting and crying and as cliche as it sounds she’s also watching a sappy romantic movie and listening to sad songs and is covered in an abundance of tissues. She’s going through a big breakup, clearly, and you’re obviously

Don’t Be Afraid To Ask For Help

It’s hard asking for help with anything, whether it’s to do with mental health, relationships, etc. It’s difficult to express how you’re feeling to someone else because you think they either won’t understand because they haven’t gone through it themselves or because you are afraid to tell them. I know from personal experiences, I have had difficulties on asking for help. Mostly because I don’t want to cause stress to other people’s lives and think

Colorism in the 21st Century

When I was younger I was always insecure about the colour of my skin, even though I was light skinned, I just felt like I wasn’t light enough and my mum who had darker skin than me told me that the colour of my skin was beautiful. It wasn’t until I was 8, when I went back to Bangladesh. They sold skin lightening products there, a popular one named Fair and Lovely, which was aggressively

You’re Not Going To Be “Forever Alone”

We’ve all been there, we’ve all seen the Facebook posts and tweets from the single person who is bitter and constantly complaining that they’re forever going to be alone or going to grow old with 40 cats or felt disheartened after seeing a cute couple on Instagram. Granted, I used to be one of those people when I was 14 but now I realize that right now I’m happy to be single, however, for some

What To Do When Your Parents Don’t Realise Your Dream

It’s difficult when parent’s don’t understand the path we want to take in life as they either think it’s not suitable or we can’t handle it and that it’s going to be hard work. When I decided when I wanted to do journalism as a career when I was 14. My parents weren’t that happy as they wanted me to become something like a doctor or a lawyer, which I didn’t want to do since

A Small Guide on How To Adult

If you’re over 18, you’re considered an adult and everyone instantly assumes that you are set out and ready for the “real world”. We’re all busy one way or another, with giving in assignments before the deadline and revising for an upcoming exam or making a presentation for work while living off microwavable noodles, being surrounded with piles on piles of crumpled pieces of paper and 1,000-page textbooks all opened, You don’t even have to

Dealing With Sleep Paralysis

For a long while now, I have dealt with sleep paralysis, it started when I was 15 and from then it just kept happening. I had heard of it before I had this issue from friends and videos I’ve watched and then one morning it just happened. For those of you, who don’t know what sleep paralysis is, it’s where you cannot move or speak whilst you’re in bed, I have also experienced waking up
