BOOKS | Breaking The OCD Stigma

Hello lovelies! 

It would be fair to say that it has been a while since I have written up a post on Very Berry Cosmo.... and I do feel really horrible about it. We all have our moments though. I have been very very busy with University - but now it is all over, I have completed my degree! Yippeeeee!

I thought I would just get straight back into blogging, it's all I have wanted to do since like September. When I handed in my final piece of coursework a few weeks ago, I thought I would be so motivated and so ecstatic to have finished, which of course I do somewhat feel that way. Stress and tension has been building up to this moment for such a long time, of course it is lovely for that to have been lifted off my shoulders. However, I am very overwhelmed about life after Uni, I am trying to secure a job for myself and I have to move out of my Leeds flat in about a week - I could be working / living anywhere in the next few months - scary thought!

Completing my degree doesn't feel so WOOO and as free as I thought it would, and I've just kind of felt demotivated on the blog front because of this. The longer you leave it, the more you don't want to get back into it. So here I am, typey typey typey-ing away, and if I'm honest, I already feel HEAPS better. I love writing, I love expressing my thoughts and feelings for you strawbs, this is my passion. Why have I been sitting back from this thing I love for so long? They say the more you 'put off' doing something, the more anxious you feel, and that anxiety only goes when you GET BACK ON THE HORSE. 

Anyways...... Excuse the rant, let's get down with the blog post shall we?

There is something that I HAVE been motivated to do, and absolutely loving, is READING. My bedroom currently looks like a Waterstones store, my to read pile is sky high, and what do I keep doing? BUYING MORE BOOKS.


Because We Are Bad Lily Bailey Book

"Do you simply love to line up your books, colour-code your stationery, or fold your socks and jeans neatly into drawers? You probably don't have OCD" 

Now, if any of you know me.... you will know how EXCITED that little sentence above makes me. Of course this book had to immediately come home with me? Lily is someone that I have had the pleasure to talk to on social media, even with her large amount of followers she is still as humble as ever, and a big inspiration to me.
