Faith & Doubt (Happy Chinese New Year, Y’all)

I like that Chinese New Year is celebrated in Feb. It gives us a reason and a chance to reflect on what we were hoping to do with the new year at the beginning of January. Since I’ve been sick, I tell myself that i should never do all the bad things I do again.Continue reading “Faith & Doubt (Happy Chinese New Year, Y’all)”

Trying To Be Mensch…

I probably should be watching the SuperBowl right now. But tonight, I’m tackling something different, something which seems necessary. Although you know me, I do love a bit of Beyonce! In my new(ish) quest to try and live life, and live it with purpose with the weight of time baring judgement on me! I haveContinue reading “Trying To Be Mensch…”

people are amazing

Yesterday I had the pleasure of drawing another cool thing for 1 small part of the NHS. The NHS Commissioning Board, the bit where Citizens who work within NHS stuff, or the voluntary sector, and innovators get together and share their ideas on how to make the NHS the best it can be, and howContinue reading “people are amazing”

Smizz’s Top 10 movies of 2012

It’s that time again where I try and judge what’s the best movies that came out and why. However, I apologise in advance that there are some of my guilty pleasures in here which probably would never make an official top 20 list, never mind a whole top 10!  And there is no mention ofContinue reading “Smizz’s Top 10 movies of 2012”

Intro: 2012 has been a year of awesomeness but a huge steep learning curve for me. Things started off amazing. I got the SITE Gallery Residency, met some awesome people, and I quit Coca-Cola, I still had my bookstore job and things felt good. But I started to feel really unusually tired, and worn down.Continue reading “This much I do know: (reflection on 2012 & life in general)”

This is a very good use of the internet.

Friendsgiving : Things in Life To Be Thankful For

On Thursday my amazing friends humoured me in re-doing our new Thanksgiving Tradition! We’re all British. Not one of us has American relatives, but we decided to do it because I’m a somewhat wanna-be New Yorker, and by the time November comes around, I’m already super missing the USA. My friends get this. I’m soContinue reading “Friendsgiving : Things in Life To Be Thankful For”

The Promise That I Made To Myself: To Never Waste More Time (3 months on)

I made myself a promise over 3 months ago. That if my time on the earth is cut short, I want to make sure that I use my time properly, and use every single bit of it. But the reality of this in itself is that it’s actually quite difficult. A few months ago, IContinue reading “The Promise That I Made To Myself: To Never Waste More Time (3 months on)”
