Like most people in the world, I adore the TV show Friends. It honestly seemed like it was always playing in the background when I was younger, and I’ve watched the entire series from start to finish many times since becoming an adult.
Like most things that were created a few decades ago, not every part of Friends has aged well. This is because we as humans are always evolving and asking ourselves if what we are doing is enough, or right.
Growing up in an era that is focused on making the world a more acceptable place has made me look at things such as Friends in a different way. Whilst I still love Friends and will continue to watch it forever, I can’t help but wonder how certain storylines would be different if Friends had come out within the last few years – which is exactly what this post is about!
Whilst going through my latest watch-through of Friends, I noted down certain events that I think would have been done differently if Friends had been made post-2010. Don’t get me wrong, I know the show is a comedy and not everything has to be so serious, but I think other shows such as Will & Grace cover both topics perfectly, so it is possible!
Let me know your thoughts on these storylines – and any others I didn’t include – and how they would be different nowadays in the comments below 👇Read More »
By now, most long-time readers and Instagram followers will know that I have epilepsy. I am still in the middle of finding the right “fix” to my seizures, so it feels somewhat strange to tell my story when it’s still being written, but once I found out that March 26th was Epilepsy Awareness Day, I knew this post was inevitable.
The real reason I am writing this post is not to tell everyone that I have epilepsy – because, as I said, most of you will know that already – but to raise more awareness of the kind of epilepsy that I have, as it’s something that I suffered the consequences of for over 22 years before I realised it was epilepsy.
Lots of possibilities entered my mind for what it could possibly be – which I will go into later on – but epilepsy didn’t even enter my mind as a possibility, and I believe that’s because I was misinformed about epilepsy for most of my life.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but when I think of epilepsy, I think of seizures that cause people to shake uncontrollably, fall down, and possibly injure themselves whilst doing so.
Whilst those seizures are very common in epilepsy, they are not the only kind of seizures that epilepsy can cause. I know this because my own seizures are very different, and that is why I am writing this post: to raise awareness of the kind of epilepsy that I have, which is called focal epilepsy.

I know we celebrate a lot of holidays over here at The Small Adventurer, but today is a really important one: it’s the International Day of Happiness!
Those who regularly visit our little corner of the internet will know how important happiness is to me, and how it has taken me a long time to find it and learn how to create it for myself.
This is precisely the reason I write these kind of posts; because I don’t want anyone else to spend another moment thinking that happiness is not for them.
I know what it’s like to accept the fact that you just weren’t meant to live a happy life, and I also know what it’s like to find out that I was wrong about that – and I’ve never been happier to be incorrect.
If you think happiness is impossible for you, I beg of you to keep reading. If you feel like happiness seems to be slipping through your fingers, I beg of you to keep reading.
If you have people in your life who are unhappy with their own, I beg of you to keep reading.
There is something in this post for everyone, and I really want you all to see it, and to learn the things that I have learnt over these past few years.
Happiness IS achievable, and I’m going to prove it to all of you. Here are my own fool-proof ways to bring happiness into your life:Read More »
