6 Year Anniversary: Relationship Q+A!

As of today Daniel and I have been together for six years. Crazy, right?! It honestly doesn’t feel that long at all, yet on the other hand I cannot remember my life without him.

I’ve actually known Daniel since 2010, when I moved to the school he went to, but we hung out in different crowds and didn’t really speak until 2013. It was only two short months later that we became a couple, and three months after that that I moved in with him – and we’ve pretty much been inseparable ever since.

I love any excuse to talk about Daniel and our relationship as he truly is the best thing that has ever happened to me, and anyone who knows me in real life will agree with that statement.

He’s made me a happier and stronger person, he constantly does anything he can to make me happy, and most importantly, he helped me escape a violent home life. I will forever be grateful to him.

This post will include some basic questions for those who don’t really know us that well, plus some questions that we get from people – both online and in real life – quite often, as I am surprised that so many people wonder the same things about our relationship. Well, wonder no more, because here are the answers!

How did you meet?

As mentioned before, we first met in 2010, when I moved to the school he was at. I was in year eight and he was in year nine, but we never really spoke as we had very different groups of friends. It wasn’t until 2013 – when we were put into a very small IT class of only five students – that we really begun to get to know each other.Read More »

5 People to Follow to Brighten Up Your Feed

I know there is a lot of downsides to the internet and social media, but as you all know, I like to focus on the good, so when I think of the internet, I’m reminded of all the happiness it has brought me.

It inspired me to start this blog, to share recipes and DIY projects with others, to reach out to people who are interested in the same things as me, and make friendships with people from all over the world.

Now that I have it, I don’t know what I would do without the lovely online community that I am a part of. I want to make sure the people whose online presence can make a horrible day completely turn around know what an amazing impact they have on me, and many others.

Tips & Tricks To Decrease Mess and Clutter Around The House

Having a tidy and organised place to live in feels like an unachievable goal, but I am yet to give up on it. I am determined to make our space one that projects the feeling of calmness rather than chaos.

As both our lives and belongings are always changing and expanding, our habits need to be altered often as well. What we were doing a few months ago might not fit into our schedule anymore, or they might not be keeping certain things under control like they used to.

I enjoy sharing my new tricks on these topics as I learn them, as I figure there are probably a lot of people like me out there who are just baffled by their own mess sometimes. I’m constantly asking myself, “Where is all this stuff coming from?”. 

Whilst I DO know the answer to that question (which is: I like to shop), I also know that isn’t something that will be changing anytime soon. Instead, I look for other solutions to keep that problem contained. Here are some of those changes that I have made recently:

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MESS AND CLUTTER (IN MY EYES)

I like to break up the problems I have into two categories: mess and clutter. By definition, these are pretty much the same thing, but that’s not how I see it. They both mean “untidy”, but mess also means “dirty”.

So, when I’m talking about mess, I’m talking about things that need to be thrown out, but haven’t been. When I’m talking about clutter, I mean things that need to be organised better, or things that are being left in places other than their “home”.

Identifying which problem you have – whether it’s one or the other, or both – will help you with fixing those problems later on.Read More »
