Read this, and never settle for less.


It can be scary thinking about the future, and what you want. It’s terrifying, believe me, I know. 

Along your journey you might see escape routes, alternatives, easy callings for things you could settle for. But reader, don’t stop and settle for something that you know you could deal with and like, but never truly love.

If you want that Range Rover, keep grinding until you get it. Don’t settle for a mini if a Range Rover is what you want. You deserve to give yourself the life you are dreaming of, because anything less than that would be doing yourself such a disservice.

If you want that job, keep working and playing the game until it’s yours. Don’t sell yourself short, you are capable of such incredible things.

Think with me now…what is that life that would be living beyond your wildest dreams? Is it to be sober and clean? The CEO? Have a beautiful family with your dream crush? Don’t ever stop fighting for what you want.

Whoever you are, wherever you may be.

Don’t you dare cheat yourself of something that could have been infinitely amazing, because you were too scared of that small leap of faith.

Don’t you dare run and hide when it comes to making your mind up about what you want, because you were too indecisive about what you knew you wanted, versus what was right in front of you at the time.

Don’t you dare settle for anything shy of perfection, anything short of exactly what you want, and anything less than the best.

Because you owe it to yourself, you goddamn masterpiece.

5 language learning tips I wish someone had told me sooner, to be honest


First of all, clickbait titles can piss off. I refuse to label these as “hacks”; they will not magically make you fluent, but they may very well aid you in your journey to the linguistic mastery of a foreign tongue. These are useful, but they work best when used alongside practising vocabulary and grammar and all of the other boring things you have to do. Onwards!

  1. Change all of your electronics into your target language. I’m talking your phone, your iPad, your computer, your limited edition pink Nintendo 3DS XL (we’re getting oddly specific here, I’ll stop now.) You get the idea. 🙂
  2. Change your location on sites like youtube and google to wherever they speak whatever it is that you’re trying to learn. The results will bring about videos from your target language’s country, which means vocab will go in.
  3. Watch Netflix in your target language, with subtitles on. Depending on how confident you feel, you can get bonus points by actually watch a programme or film with subtitles in your target language. I’m possibly the last person you’d trust hearing something regarding bingeing, but bingeing on Netflix in a foreign language must be good for you. Right?
  4. Listen to foreign language radio stations- easily found with a google search.
  5. Check out It is a website that allows you to (for a fee) talk with a native speaker for an hour, so you can really get on top of those oral skills. Might be a bit of a mouthful though. Some things might be really hard. Tough to swallow all that information. (I’ll stop with the innuendos now…)

There we have it, my top tips that I wish someone had told me a bit sooner. They do really help, and if you genuinely commit, you can really see some improvements in no time at all.

Much love,
