Your alarm wakes you up at 5am and you've realised it's Monday. What's going through your mind are thoughts of exhaustion and misery as your dreading the long day at the office. You then decide to lie in bed for another fifteen minutes but that little time of extra sleep turns into an hour.

Dear Journal, It's March! I can't believe we've spent one year in this pandemic but we're surviving. Despite winter being an absolute pain due to the second lockdown, I'm getting back on track to how I used to be. Fun, free-spirited and productive person.
All I ever wanted was designer clothes. Every morning I write in my little black notebook of all the designer items I need from Chanel, Gucci, Dior and Givenchy so I can keep up with all the celebrity trends. Steven, once told me to write down everything you want onto piece of paper then one day it will come true. So that's what I've been doing.
How To Stop A Stutter
It's not easy having your name called in the classroom to read out loud when you know your about to stutter through the next paragraph. It's also not easy being ignored by someone to have a conversation with as they know your going to stutter through a sentence. This has been my reality for many years and I never imagined what life could be like without having a stutter, only because I thought it would be something I could never get rid of.
The Aftermath Of A Break Up (Feat. Little Mix)

Shirley, You've Been So Good To Me
Moving around from one house to another all over London wasn't easy for me as a child. Before I turned eight, I lived in seven different houses that were all in different neighbourhoods. Some of the areas where I lived weren't as safe as seemed and some didn't have the amenities that a parent wanted for their child such as parks and leisure centres for kids to enjoy. My parents were also going through a divorce which was difficult for me to handle at the time. So having many birthday parties in several houses and witnessing my parents going through their darkest moment is a memory of mine that will never be forgotten. With all the switching and changing from one house to the next, I never had a place to call home until my grandma introduced my mum, brother, and I to Shirley. No not Shirley Mcclain, Shirley the small town in the South of London or preferably known as the edge of the British Capital.
