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 […]

On Instagram Poetry and ‘Real’ Writers

A few days ago I posted a photo on Instagram of some poetry I was working on. It was only a few lines, didn’t give away much, and didn’t serve any ulterior motive. By this I mean I didn’t post it to become ‘Insta-famous’. I didn’t post it to show off in some way, if […]

2020 Goals

As I’ve said before, I don’t particularly like the term ‘resolutions’. What I do like is having goals, and putting them into smaller goals so you don’t feel overwhelmed. I don’t see any problem in having vision of what you want your life to be like, but I do also want to leave room for […]

Teachers

I graduated high school in 2015. While I was relatively sad when I said goodbye, I was never overly attached and was happy to be moving on. I felt more than ready to go and do something else, and there isn’t any part of me that wants to go back. But I’ve been thinking a […]

January 2020 Reading

For this month’s reading list, I thought I’d try out a different format as there are a lot of books to get through. This month I read numerous poetry books that I ordered online. I love these poets’ spoken word on YouTube, and I thought it was worth supporting the small publishing house. If My […]

Settling into 2020

I understand the hype of January, and the feeling of refreshment and changing things for the better. But I don’t understand the pressure of needing to be perfect by January 2nd. I have goals for the year, yes, but you can’t be expected to have everything together by the time February rolls around, let alone […]
