Failure Leads to Success / Weird is Bankable

I got my results back for my Masters on Monday. The great news is that I can now say that I am a Master of Architecture (Professional), fully qualified to go and learn how to be an architect (wait, didn’t I already do that? Haha, nope. Three more years of professional work, dude. THREE MORE…

Bragging Rights

I keep getting this sinking feeling, like I’m failing in life. Woah, drama queen (always). I’ve finished my Masters degree and since then I’ve felt like I’ve barely achieved anything, which is semi-ridiculous. I feel like a failure because I don’t have a “proper architecture job” or a drivers licence, I don’t blog enough and…

An EPIC Update

Hello, my lovely little readers, I’m back! With the most epic of updates just for you xoxo Yes, I know, I’m sorry for not posting since Christmas. I’m sorry I didn’t let anyone know where I was and what I was up to, but I figure you would work out that it was due to…

Pause For A Moment

Hello team! Apologies for the radio silence on my end. I have been SO busy. Super busy. I need to stop posting for the next few weeks; to wrap my head around my uni work, PhD proposals and conference paper writing. I am a crazy busy girl! I love this little space on the net,…

Learning – A Mental Health Update

I’m sure many of you would have picked up on the fact that the past few months haven’t been great for me. They’ve been pretty miserable in all honesty. And not because my life has been bad, in fact – my life has been pretty awesome as of late – but because my depression and…

Obsessions

GREETINGS FRIENDS!! Oh man. So, this week has been fairly exhausting. I don’t know if anyone is interested, but at university this week I did the following things: started laying out my thesis document, started drawing graphics of the wall that I built, had a very important meeting and wrote my abstract, preface, acknowledgements and…

Sunday. Father’s Day?

Funny story. This morning I woke up early to cook waffles for my lovely Dad, as it’s Father’s Day today in NZ. I got downstairs to find that my Dad had eaten breakfast already and was about to leave the house. He had even made the waffle batter for his lazy children to cook up for him….

Happy First Birthday!

Today, ladies and gents, is My Name In Bold’s first birthday!!! I have been blogging about my life of boys, food, losing weight, gaining weight, life problems, university, mental health, food, and boys for a whole year. That’s a bit of an achievement. So snaps for me. Snaps to my blog because it can’t eat…

When Life Gives You Lemons

I have come to a conclusion, and it’s probably a bad one, that I should never, ever date again. You know when you drink far, far too much (usually on the “best night of your life so far”) and you spend the next two days in bed feeling terribly sorry for yourself and only have…

10 Ways to Beat A Creative Block

The creative process is an incredibly fun one, but sometimes you’ll hit a point where you “just can’t even”. Those moments, creative blocks, are incredibly frustrating and sometimes you’ll just want to walk away and give up. But you can get through it!! Here are some tips that help me get through those moments and…

Under Pressure

I really struggle with daily pressures. In today’s society I think we are all about “go, go, go”. We are constantly trying to be the best we can be, but with that we barely take time out to enjoy life. I have written about the power of balance and the power of rest before; the…

Weird, But Fun Weird

HELLOOOOOO!!! This week has been fun but bizarre. I don’t really know how to quantify it but I’ll just write down a list of weird, but happy moments: + Getting photographed for a university publication that is going to advertise postgrad study. I am going to be an example to everyone. Like, what?! Picture me,…
