    The other night I went to the cinema to watch The Fault In Our Stars. Having not read the book, I relied on my friend’s vague suggestions as to what to expect. Now, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, however, as I sat there surrounded by a room full of sobbing people, I couldn’t contain my laughter...

    I used to feel that I knew a lot about stress. Having just completed high school, and the IB diploma at that, I've spent the past year in a mild state of shock. There have been tears, nervous breakdowns, an unusual amount of minties being eaten, and even a fainting incident. I perceived this to...

    When I was 5 years old I watched a man die. He had a heart attack whilst climbing a ladder to fix my mother's fuse box. He was an electrician. He collapsed. My step-father gave him CPR. And then he died. It was obvious. He hadn't been breathing. It had been more than 10 minutes. And then h...

    So, I have a problem. I like someone. More than I should. And it's not physical, it's emotional. And that makes it so much worse. I need to be focussed on my studies, as if I'm not distracted enough by the relationships of convenience that too easily become friendships. I used to be a...

    Earlier this evening I sat through yet another compulsory Chapel service and was forced to listen to a preacher talk about 'us' as if I was a willing participant who believed in her opinion. I believe in respecting all religions, so I stand, sit, sing compliantly. I respect her beliefs, bu...

    I look in your face and I see a future. Pure eyes, innocent and vulnerable, with all the trust in the world yet broken. Certainty, that home is in my arms. But you are not mine. When she came to me, with you, the secret yet unborn, I felt fear. Fear for her. Fear for me. Fear of what her parents w...

    As I begin my applications for University and the necessary scholarships associated with these courses and accommodation, I notice that the questions are exactly what I expect them to be: What extra-curriculars do you do? How have you made a difference in your community? How have you overcome dif...

    I stared at the clock on the wall in total silence. Watching every movement as the time went by. Knowing that time meant nothing to me anymore. Nothing meant anything to me anymore. I had been robbed of my spirit and my soul. There was nothing to do now but stare at the clock on the white wall, sit ...

    One of the most common beliefs we are told in modern society is, “you can do anything you put your mind to.” When children are six years old and they walk up to their parents with a picture of Kate Middleton in their hands and say, ‘one day I’ll be a princess too!’ you don’t hear mothers...
