A Dive into Independence

Time is a funny thing. On one hand, it feels like I’ve been ‘moved out’ forever. It’s very normal, even though it’s only been two weeks. While my time has been up and down (down being knocking my bottle of olive oil on the floor and spending twenty minutes trying to make the floor not-slippery) […]

Lost / Poem

Seedlings planted in soil, Bees prepared for pollen. The promise of a rainy season. Hope comes with each beginning, This no exception. Growing requires dedication. But they bloomed too early, Thinking it was spring. Left yearning for sunlight, a drink. You tried to make things right, But nothing seemed to stick. Is there a love […]

always learning, always laughing

One of my units for this trimester at uni is a communications course. We’re studying media and film techniques. I didn’t think I would enjoy the course that much, but yesterday morning I accidentally watched ten minutes of a movie with mute on. Not on purpose. I was watching the movie, thinking about the actors’ […]

Apology / Poem

A poem about apologies: recycled words sit in my mouth / grate like sandpaper against my tongue / I’m sorry / only they are not my words / but what everyone else is whispering / I pick up apologies and carry them home / they marinate in the kitchen / but they do not hold […]

the other side of myself

I wonder what my day would have looked like had I still been living at home. The tea would taste the same, probably. My stress over the start of this trimester at uni would be the same, probably. The knowledge that I have friends scattered in different directions is the same, most definitely. I’ve moved, […]

February 2020 Reading

February consisted of some heavy reading as uni starts in March and I had to read books for my English class (engaging with literature). So, here we go. The classics I read this month were mostly winners, but they all took a lot out of me. Pygmalion, the play by Bernard Shaw, was fantastic when […]

Something Will Happen

I find it bizarre to think about what you’re doing now, then think back to one year ago or five. Would that person have been able to do what you’re doing today? I’m in the processing of moving out of my parents’ house, and I don’t think even the Sarah of six months ago would’ve […]

Frustration Celebration

I was driving today. For about twenty minutes there was a long line of cars – me, in the thick of it – stuck in the overtaking lane. The left lane wasn’t as full, but contained some of the slowest drivers known to man. I debated hopping over to the left lane numerous times, but […]

Rain, Rain

I have a cup of tea, I can hear the rain, and I love days like these. There is something beautiful about a warm, sunny day. When you open all the windows and lie on the grass and drink cold water with lemon slices. But there is always a part of me yearning for that […]

Swimming Lessons

Do you remember when you were young and you would go swimming? Your parents might have sat beside the pool keeping an eye on you, they might have been swimming beside you. When you’re learning to swim, there comes a point when you have to let go of your parent or teacher, let go of […]
