‘FILLING STATION’ | REVIEW

Today is my sister’s birthday and as is the annual tradition we went out for dinner in celebration.

THE REALITY OF MENTAL ILLNESS

Mental illness. A taboo subject but something that effects most, if not the whole, of the population.

I also made a video reflecting on the past 12 months and talking about my goals for 2017 which I will link at the end.
