Embracing my Capacity for Creativity with London Drawing Group

How have you been this lock-down? Since I am pretty sure all my readers are UK based and now in the drudgery of a third lock-down, I think we can assume we’re all feeling the same. Lethargic. I feel like the joy and energy has been sapped from life, and I am just waiting out until the end and hoping for the best. Daily, it’s a struggle. But these mini lectures and art workshops have given me little pockets of meaningfulness and learning, so I wanted to share them with you.

Heyyyy! It’s ya girl, Amy, back at it again with some awesome new conte… no, I can’t keep this up. Yeah, hi – I was gone, and now I’m back.

But I thought, seeing as it’s Halloween season (aka… September right up to October 31st) I’d start producing some more posts for my favourite time of the year.

Major Adulting: How I have been coping with Anxiety in Lock-Down (and onwards)

Now I’m going to spill some not-so-sweet tea… just before the lock-down my anxiety hit a spike after months of burying it, and I ended up having to sign myself off work due to stress. It’s not been pretty, but that’s the truth of it. Since then I’ve been phasing back and, more importantly, feeling a lot better. Here’s a few ways that I have been coping with anxiety and stress since then; I hope you find them useful.

Eating Dried Crickets (and 29 other Awesome Food Experiences)

I decided to try 30 new foods I’d never had before, in the hope of broadening my culinary experience before I turned 30. I did it but never posted this, and it was one of the few goals I managed to complete… Probably because it involved food. I hope this helps you on your journey around the foods of the world!

You probably won’t want to try the last one though…
